Pete Townshend - "Night School" - A Sound Quality Comparison
This video is a great example that not all video sources sound alike...
Above, there are (4) four variations of the 1985 Pete Townshend "White City" video - (from left to right) USA Beta Hi Fi, UK VHS Hi Fi Promo only ("Pete Townshend Talking About The Film White City"), USA Laser Disc 1 and the Japan Laser Disc 1. Each of these sound very different.
"Night School" is an exclusive bonus track 2 found only the video versions of "White City".
I had initially recorded this track to CD (from the USA laser disc) many years ago and always found the sound quality, dull. Here, I recorded and compared the other versions. The results were very different.
Below are HD sound samples from each of these:
USA Beta Hi Fi
UK VHS Hi Fi (Promo)
USA Laser Disc
Japan Laser Disc
As you can hear for yourself, (like CDs and LPs) not all video format sound tracks are created alike.
 Neither of the (2) two laser discs above use the digital sound format
 This version of "Night School" is not the same as the version used as a bonus track on the 2006 White City CDs
