I am unreasonably excited that I finally have a real DVD copy of URGH! A Music War! It's a good transfer, much better than the copy I recorded from the Sundance channel years ago.

    I used to have a double audio cassette version of URGH.
    Was it ever released on CD?

    The quality looks good, even though there's this disclaimer:

    This film has been manufactured from the best-quality video master currently available and has not been remastered or restored specifically for this DVD and On Demand release.

    I wonder what this means - I guess they didn't go back to 35mm elements. The format says "16:9 full frame" - does that mean it's letterboxed in a 4:3 box or what ? Amazon says it's "wide screen."

      It's 16:9, and when I ripped it with Handbrake I got 704x400 video, no letterboxing. (Possibly the native video size is 720x480? I don't understand what the "anamorphic" settings in Handbrake actually do.) It did not appear to be interlaced.

      Chapter markers are every 10 minutes rather than between acts, and I think it might be a DVD-R but I'm not sure.

    Wow, thank you. This makes me very happy.

    had a great vinyl copy of it years ago, a camo covered double album. sadly dont know what happened to it, like much of my vinyl.

  5. This was one of the few cassettes that I wore out playing so much. The lineup is from heaven.

    Interesting take on the WB Archives release of URGH! from Skafish (of "Sign of the Cross" fame):
