All of the bank performances seem to there as I've said many times.
While I'd love to see a Shout Factory or Star Vista Set, their strategy has been to complete series. With HD clocking in at 11 seasons, the set would be every, very pricey. Think about it. WKRP with only 4 seasons is $120. Maybe if it was split into volumes with 3 or 4 seasons in a volume.

I kind of disagree with you only from this aspect an im happy that you took WKRP for example an allow me to go further when Fox Century had released WKRP and everything was everybody went crazy because of what was replace and believe me I think that WKRP was a difficult series to obtain certain music rights I get that but if you look at what shout factory had did by taking it upon themselves to released the complete series an I am sure that through social media they felt that classic shows should be shown in their original airing an I give then allot of credit because they told their fans on the that they cleared as much music as they could an tried their best to included everything but they could nt do it an they were honest the same thing with Time Life who did the wonder years an they cleared every song wherefore I presumed that they had to spend millions of dollars clearing everything my point to you is that Shout an Time are tired of seeing these studios releasing dvd wherefore at the same time they are not showing an effort wherefore like Fonzie coming to the rescue an when it comes to releasing classic shows I rather put in the hands of shout factory or a Time Life because they no how to do it an they listen to what people have to say an this is why studios dvd do not sell again I rather see outside source putting out the best an shout an time life has proven that. I rather pay for the complete series then.anything else an im sure that shout an time life are getting ideas an suggestion an we see what they are doing

I agree that all the band performances are there.

The only episode that appears to be edited was the Mork episode.... not that it's terribly edited (just short of 25 minutes)....

When they do the "montage" scenes during that episode there is replacement music.

Also noticed that in the episode "Marion: Fairy Godmother" episode that while Marion and Joanie are teaching Leather to be more lady-like ...the music is replaced there as well. (was it "Personality" that was originally played in this part?)

I wonder how they got away with using the songs in the first place back in the 1970s? And still the music was left in the show in re-runs? Is there a statute of limitations for copyright or registered trademark or whatever the music artist complaint is? How does this work?

I'm not an expert, but my guess is that they licensed the music rights for TV airing only, not anticipating that there would be home video years and decades down the line.

Because DVD is a physical format and most likely not defined or mentioned in those original TV-only licensing agreements, it has to be negotiated separately.

It's too bad they're not willing to spend the money to restore the original music and the original feel of those classic episodes.

Hey not to cut In but now you all see as well as witness for yourself of how outside companies such as Shout Mills Creek an Time Life are so important for shows like these an to me they no how to get the clearance not just to some but all orginal footage an this is why I trust shout factory a bit more the same with Time Life because one could have only imagination the hell that they must have gone through to clear the rights for The Wonder Years China Beach an WKRP but they all knew what the fans of these shows wanted an I give shout a lot of credit because they admitted that when they got WKRP they tried their best to get as much music as they could but couldn't but it showed that they were honest but they were able to retain 90 percent of the original track WKRP from what I read was the hardest show to do CBS shows again which im not going to get into but shout is the only hope in a future dvd series with all intact agree or disgree
