This Disco-Vision test pressing is much like The Andromeda Strain, The Marcus-Nelson Murders
has it's problems in the video transfer. The transfer is too green which just makes everything look off. Also present
are the same over saturation problems which results in high-contrast ghosting. This causes loss of detail on any bright
areas of the screen - for example, the panes of glass on a window. The audio transfer is not too bad overall but it is
a bit harsh in some spots.
All five sides of this title are very long. The same side breaks were used on the production version of the title
as are on this test pressing. I found the replication of these discs actually quite good. There are periods of single
line dropouts and some minor speckling. This could be a result of the selective way the test pressings were assembled.
