Hi all,

re-arranging my video-collection these weeks ... I stumbled over a performance of three Mike-tunes: North Point/The Time has come/Islands.
It surely is from 1987 (possibly 1988?) and from a TV-show .... but which?

I don't have a clue when or where I got the video from ... well ... the "when" could be dated to somehwere in 2001 as the file-data says 2001-02-05.... the original file is a mpg-video of 168 MB.
(If any1 is interested in the original-file, I'll surely can make it available somewhere..)

Anyway, have also upped it to a friend's youtube-channel:


... so where have these songs been performed ... and when?
Thx for your kindful help in advance...

Bootlegs should be shared not sold.

Hi, dkaycom

Sorry for the 3-year delay, I was busy walking the dog, anyway better late than never.
Original details for the video you're interested in:

Name: motve2.mpg
Size: 176.263.168 bytes
Length:  11 min. 50 sec.
Format:  320x240 Mpeg (1700 kbps, 44.1 Khz, 16 bps, 2 ch (256 Kbps)
Bitrate: 1985 kbps (25 fps)


   North Point (Mike plays guitar, Anita Hegerland sings, playback)
   The Time has come (ditto)
   Islands (Mike plays guitar, Bonnie Tyler sings, playback)

Source:  VHS tape directly recorded from Spanish TV
Programme:  "Sábado Noche", TVE1, October 31st, 1987 10:30 PM
Reference (in Spanish, use Google Translate):  http://elpais.com/diario/1987/10/31/radiotv/562633203_850215.html

Additional info:

This video was to be included on CD3 of the "Lost in Static 19" fan project, which was finally released as a 2 CD set.

I have much better quality versions of both this video and another one also included on CD3, namely:

Name:  molaluna.mpg
Length: 8 min. 35 sec.
Format and bitrate:  Same as above


Innocent (Mike plays, Anita Hegerland sings, playback)
Julia Otero interviews Mike (in both English and Spanish)
Blue Night (Mike plays, Meggie Reilly sings, playback)

Hope that helps.

Looks slightly more comfortable with miming here than he does in that "live" video of To France.

Actually Mike looks quite dapper in this.
