Mastered with 20 Frame Skip, this would be the longest DiscoVision
side in history. However, with compensation for the frame skipping, the side runs 29min 15sec. The program
appears to be two 15 minute segments which have been spliced together. I do not know where "Erica" fit into the
WGBH program schedule, but it isn't common to come across 15 minute programs. The first program is missing the end
credits, which would have added about 40 seconds to the program - forcing it to another side.
The audio transfer is very clear and crisp with every little sound in the room very present. From the sound of wool
yarn being pulled through the cloth to the ticking grandfather clock, all are present. The video transfer is
exceptionally sharp and clear with excellent color control and contrast. Given the fine details of the subject matter
the video could have reduced the fabric to a blurry smear, but all the details are present. Due to the extremely long
side, it is fairly common for copies to develop problems by the end of the side. The copy reviewed is very good indeed
with no speckles or locking problems.
Satin Stitch / Chain has never been re-released on LaserDisc.
