This is a very, very historic "period piece" type video.
It was filmed at Wayne State University TV Studio, in Detroit and
the host's name is Dave.
The person from whom I received this video says it's "Detroit
Tube Works 1971."
The setting is a small tv studio (probably a public television
studio) with Ted and the host sitting on the floor of small stage. Ted
has several guitars lying around - all of them are Gibson Birdlands. It's
very laided back, and I doubt that there was any script for this as Ted just

Although he shows signs of it, Ted hasn't yet become the cocky
mofo that he is today.
There are logical chapter points throughout the video, some of
them are for the various guitar jams, and others are placed at the beginning of
The video cuts before reaching the end. I don't know how long the original video was, but this
portion is 46 minutes long.
