I obtained the vid of the three Hacienda performance from 1983 via eBay back in 2006. Happened upon it quite by chance and bizarrely nobody else bid on it!
The seller said she was selling it on behalf of her father who was a friend of Johnny Marr. Johnny had given her father the video way back when. I believe the majority of Hacienda gigs were professionally filmed during the mid eighties with cameras rigged up on either side of the stage - these are certainly not audience recordings - and of course a number of these recordings have been commerically released - The Fall; Gun Club; Cabaret Voltaire etc.
Never quite sure why it's taken so long to get round to upping it here and on Dime. Steven deserves the credit for all the technical stuff

I wonder if the middle hacienda show which has been available for a long time is in better quality on your copy than the one already available? Great story by the way, dare we ask what you paid?

The quality of the second show is comparable to these other two. I haven't watched the circulated copy in a while - I seem to recall it was pretty good quality - I'll dig it out to compare and contrast.
Just to add to Jon's reply. The IKON logo appears at the beginning of the first gig. I think the eBay seller said that the shows were recorded and intended for commercial release. Sadly, Jon and I have lost the email correspondence that accompanied the sale of the tape. This gave excellent information about provenance. Attempts to recover this information also account for the delay in circulating this earlier ...

If memory serves, the quality of the July gig on the tape isn't an improvement on the one that's been in circulation for some time although Steven can confirm
Alas, this may suggest that a better quality version doesn't exist although who knows?
Paid £50.00 plus £3.00 postage and packing

Sounds like you got a bargain, thanks very much for sharing it with us.
As for the second show, i think the copy which is circulated has a few places were the tape was a bit chewed - not bad enough to spoil it but if that show is in as pristine a condition as this one then it may be an upgrade.

I've had three different copies of the 2nd show and could still use an upgrade if possible..

Might just be me, when i burned the download off here it doesn't go from one track to the next, i have to restart it and skip.
Seems the DVD has been done so that each track is a title not a chapter, same on the 3rd show's DVD.
