as EVC was an International label, wouldn't the numbers of the UK list be the same? (I checked only one and it was the same :)), So I think we might as well try to make an International list, that way more people could help too!

... I would be interested in seeing what titles had limited releases in only one or two of all the countries that EVC distributed in, the exeptions and other obscure releases.... but there are a lOt of titles, so this is no easy task.
Didn't any of these distributers publish these kind of lists themselfs?? If so, one or two old videostore owners might still have those and save us a lot of work
There are catalogues for the most obscure kind of collections, but the videotape-rental could well become a forgotten piece of history in a few years time :ph43r:

An interesting thing is that some old Blue EVCs don't come with EVC toplabels...

Real EVCs were duplicated by VTR:


So no need to panic when encountering one with a different (non EVC) toplabel, real EVCs were always marked by a VTR stamp burnt into the cassette itself:

Some even came with BUDGET (IDI) toplabels

OK, i've added KingofB's stuff and will all add the UK ones later (I checked my swedish EVC:s too and the numbers are all the same, so we have to presume that the numbers are the same on the international releases).

EVC stood for "European Video Club" so it would surprise me if the numbers werent the same, but hey, this is eighties VHS-land we're traveling into, so I guess anything's possible

These are all the blue EVC tapes I have at the moment (all Dutch). Some of them are mentioned allready and a lot of them have stickers over their number, but anyway:

434 two female spies with flowerd panties
128 55 days at peking
??? El Cid
496 the Sharkhunter
??? Girls Concentration Camp
??? Keoma
5 Bad Man's River
??? Hell's Fighters (the last duel)
??? goodbye emmanuelle
7 the baby
A116 Savage Pampus

That last one with the letter in the number has a different kind of EVC logo, maybe an older design. What I noticed when inspecting the toplabels of these tapes is that most of them have an EVC copyright notice dated 1980. Does this mean that (most of) the blue EVC tapes (with the normal EVC logo) were all released in the same year!?!?
