This is a great recording. A little bit of tape hiss, but otherwise very clear. All of the instruments and Dave’s singing come out with SB-like clarity. Generally not a lot of audience noise during this one. The taper and the people around him start chatting a little during the last couple songs. The recording sounds like it runs just a tad slow but I didn’t adjust anything. There is a cut in “Pretty Woman” on the analog master around 1:40-1:45. I’m not sure what else has been in the lineage. I suspect there was a DAT in there based on the spectral view. It does not look like a straight cassette to CDR transfer.

I suppose the ultra-long guitar solo would be the distinguishing feature of this show. It’s over 16 minutes long, and it doesn’t even have the Eric Clapton jam in it. The performance is solid. The Daveisms are funny and are of a special Valentine’s Day variety. Eddie’s playing sometimes is a little off…the intro to Girl Gone Bad, the excessively long “Little Guitars intro” section of the guitar solo, and the part in Panama going from the “She’s runnin’” part back into the chorus.

Overall, probably one of the top 10 recordings of the 1984 tour.

Thanks to Tim O. in New York for this.

Thanks for the heads up.

The poor folks play for keeps down here…They’re the living dead. Nobody rules these streets at night like Van Halen!!

Big Jon

Ron – thank you !!

As someone who’s only been torrenting for about three years, I always appreciate seeds/re-seeds for older torrents that I missed out on.
