    quality dvd releases of classic gay porn films?

    I was wondering if anyone knows of any quality dvd releases of classic gay porn films from the 70's and 80's? Other than the couple released by Vinegar Syndrome. I mean films that have been mastered from a film print and not some VHS tape. I am hesitant to buy any gay classics on dvd, because I have bought a couple and they are edited to hell and look worse than VHS, but thought I'd start a thread to see which ones are worth buying? Thanks in advance.

    Aren't there some via SWV?

    oh and I don't want any DVD-R from SWV, every time I order from them they send me scratched to hell discs, I quit ordering from them years ago because of this. Plus I don't really like DVD-R to begin with. Feels like I"m buying a bootleg. Which actually is what SWV is, or what they began as at least.

    There are a lot of great pre-condom gay classics on DVD but the only ones that I have seen that have been fully restored are the ones from Vinegar Syndrome.

    The producers of the documentary Seed Money: The Chuck Holmes Story had VS restore The Other Side of Aspen (Falcon) and clips are used in the documentary. I asked Falcon about the restoration on Facebook and received this reply: "We do hope to release the full restored version eventually, but there's no timeline for when that might happen." Really looking forward to it's release!

    Falcon, Bijou, Catalina (via Channel 1 Releasing), and Alpha Blue Archives all have some great gay classic films on DVD but like I said they aren't given the restoration effort they deserve. The French Connection is the American distributor of the Jean Daniel Cadinot films (some of my all-time favorites). He made some beautiful films and I'm glad I have them on DVD but they are really in need of the VS treatment!

    Before buying I usually check out the quality by renting from xrentdvd.com

    I just rented two French Connection Cadinot discs from xrentdvd.com (Cadinot Classics 2 and Love and Jealousy) and both have the fisting scenes removed. The original DVD releases from France are uncut, region free and NTSC so I was hoping they were just repackaged for American release but this isn't the case. They are edited and the video quality is not as good as the original French DVD releases.
