Decent quality. 2014 Remaster improves a bit, original is pretty muddy, this is a little brighter. Eddie messes around on several spots.

— 2014 Notes —
The original sound on this show was pretty buried and muffled throughout, this 2014 remaster is a *slight* upgrade adding some mid/high end and also pitch correction. This show is kinda funny because Eddie is playing pretty loose and seems to be horsing around in a few songs (HFT, GGB, Solo).

Disc 1:

1. Unchained
2. Hot For Teacher
3. Drum Solo
4. On Fire
5. Runnin’ With the Devil
6. Dave talks
7. Little Guitars
8. Cathedral
9. House of Pain
10. Bass Solo
11. Jamie’s Cryin’
12. I’ll Wait

Disc 2:

1. Keyboard Solo
2. Everybody Wants Some!!
3. Girl Gone Bad
4. 1984
5. Jump
6. Guitar Solo
7. (Oh) Pretty Woman
8. Panama
9. You Really Got Me
10. Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love

// Original Notes:
When I was initially told about the Police Cincinnati ’84 master source I transferred and torrented I was told about this show too. I could be wrong, but based on what I checked it seems this is a brand-new show to circulation. I am confident this finding will likely be appreciated the VH community, but I’d say that nothing too exciting happens on this night. Disc 1 is side 1 of the first tape. Disc 2 is side 2 of the first tape and side 1 of the second tape. There is a cut in Eruption (tape flip) and there are a couple of other cuts as well. Some of the tracks are left with solos attached since they were attached in the performance.

Oh and the funniest part at the beginning of #6 (Dave talks) … some crazy pissed off dude starts yelling about his seats. Good times.
