In my quest to find a "real" LHODES VHS bootleg (see if you can help here), I ran across this online DVD-R dealer, the VHS Preservation Society, having first heard of these guys from this 31 Days, 31 Links entry at Freddy in Space. I spotted a listing for Dead End Street and figured I'd bite, unfortunately upon receiving a friendly shipping notice a day (well, yesterday) after I placed the order, I was told it was the only title from a digital source they offered.
Argh. That threw up an enormous red flag, and surprisingly receiving the disc today via priority, sure enough the disc is a complete rip of the first disc from the defunct Barrel Entertainment's out-of-print 2-DVD set including commentary and extras.
So my first order with VHSPS was both good-and-bad. Friendly service, prompt turnaround on orders, "free" priority shipping without a request for it (@ $4.95), and the disc is authored correctly. I guess I just had the luck of getting the only digitally sourced title out of their catalog. Though I can see myself nabbing another flick or two from them down the road...
