I only have one request, that you don’t take these files and post them on other torrent sites. I have many shows to upload. I will upload, let them get seeded by others and after a majority have downloaded the files completely, remove my files so I can seed something new. I prefer to manage my own shows on DIME and The Traders Den. I will upload to other sites when I wish to for select shows. Thanks for honoring my wishes in advance.

This is “CBG Classic Master Video Series Vol. 46”.

I usually do one show release a week, but since I paused for a few months in releasing shows, I decided to release both the Lita Ford and the headliner, Poison, this weekend together.

I first saw Poison when they warmed up Ratt back on their first tour in New Haven, CT in 1986 and then a few times warming up David Lee Roth on the Skyscraper tour. This was the first time I saw them headline a show. It was a beautiful night in Connecticut at this Lake Compounce amusement park venue. The best place and safest place to go was on the lawn where there wasn’t security walking through the lawn as so many shed venues now. This was a new venue built with a small concrete floor where they set up chairs and then a big lawn that sloped up slightly from the back of the seats. There was no cover over the seats or lawn so the sound was not muffled or echoed by a roof. The only thing was, because it was nestled in the woods with housing developments around it, they had to moderate the volume at this place and didn’t really crank the music too loud. This would later prove to be an issue with this band, but we will save that for another day.

When the band hit the stage, it was full on energy. The album ‘Open Up and Say…Ahh!’ was just released in May 1988 and they had come around through the area in March-April and returned with in July warming up David Lee Roth. Now they were headlining in September. You could tell that they were thrilled with being the headliner finally. The show went smoothly with no issues from security and this Lake Compounce place was becoming one of my favorite places to film in a lawn situation. Enjoy Poison in Bristol, CT as they were starting to hit it big! CBG5150 Posted to DIME 2016-11-27.

Wow! I was at this show, it was a great show.
I too first saw Poison open for RATT in New Haven.

Great memory.
