Where the Buffalo Roam

Love it or loathe it, Where the Buffalo Roam has a nice following among gonzo fans. I saw it on TV before I saw the FLLV movie, and I didn't care for it too much. I watched it again on VHS and still didn't like it. The pacing was off and I didn't find it very funny. Anyway, you can check out the IMDb listing for it, which contains many reviews and trivia. There is a nice synopsis of the movie on Wikipedia as well.
It should be noted that there are differences in the VHS and DVD versions in regards to music scores. See below.

Here's a smattering of photos. The soundtrack LP was a very common find a few years ago, and although I also found a cassette, I still haven't listened to the darn thing.

Occasionally you can find a press kit on eBay, although they are very hard to come by. I believe I bought mine for about ~$60US back in 2000ish.
