**The last three and a half minutes of the show are from 1988-10-11 MSG, NYC because I only went into the show with one 120 minute 8mm tape and the show ran slightly longer than the other shows I went to. So we just filled it out with the ending from MSG.

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. 32”.

By now I was trying to film in other arenas in the area. I started with New Haven Coliseum and the Springfield Civic Center. Then I thought the only other arena would be the Montreal Forum on Pierre’s recommendation that only old men take your tickets there with no search. So I drove all the way there, like 6 hours, for a few shows I really wanted. Nassau Coliseum on Long Island was the next conquest, and then Madison Square Garden. I had been to this arena befpre to record audio but when Van Halen went on sale for all the arenas around me, I had to go try to get them I felt.

So Providence was one show of the ‘return to the area’ fall shows in Rocktober in the northeast. The Monsters of Rock tour was through here in June, and on par with most tours, they returned in the fall for some more dates. These were in arenas and they changed the setlist some from the summer. These shows made me stand out a little less as it was getting cool out in the evenings and wearing a jacket looked normal. Still, with these arenas that I never really filmed in, and thought I wouldn’t get in due to the search, I was still quite nervous entering. I would look consciously at all of the security personnel at the entrances trying to find the one that I might be able to scoot through on. This was a tough entry. A lot of real intense head to toe pat downs by the security. After scoping everyone for a while, I found what I thought might be a way in by a security guard that was getting a little lazy. I got lucky and I was through the door.

Once in this place, I felt pretty comfortable. Security mostly stayed on the first level and floor. I went to the side in the 2nd level, which wasn’t as high as most arenas, and did my thing. Another arena conquered. One of the arenas that I initially thought I couldn’t get into. I was no beginning to feel like I can go to all these arenas around me and also to ones far away. I was starting to think, why not try. I could end up with a show like this. It also made me think, why didn’t I really try this sooner in these arenas?! There were many great tours in 1986 and 87 that I only focused on audio for. I just assumed I couldn’t film in these arenas. And with that thinking I just didn’t try. It was flawed thinking. If you convince yourself you can’t, you won’t. If you say to yourself that you can, then you will eventually. Even if you get put down or fail for some reason the first or second time, eventually you will if you keep trying and don’t quit. That is kind of a philosophy for life, but it definitely applied to me for filming concerts. This hobby isn’t for the weak. Every one of us have setbacks and every show is a different experience. Every time you get knocked down, you get back up and try again, you eventually will be successful. And the satisfaction of getting the good show will be big boost of energy to continue on with the next night or the next show. Enjoy another great show from the Mighty Van Halen and the Red Rocker in my first time filming in Providence! CBG5150 Posted to Dime 2015-09-04.

D’oh! I already downloaded it on DIME. My ratio is already ruined, but considering I doubt there will be too many more VH DVD uploaded my ratio is good enough. BTW, as always, thanks for nothing for your work on this release :)

There will be many (dozens) more never before released VH DVDs coming.

I take it you were rather disappointed with this most recent one?

Do you have the Hartford show? I was at that one. I remember a beach ball getting tossed around.

I was joking!!! Hence the smiley face. Whether it was the greatest VH DVD or the worst, I am very very thankful for all of your efforts.

CBG likes to keep an element of surprise with the releases, so I can’t specifically say if/when Hartford ’88 was filmed. I do remember the beach ball though during “I Can’t Drive 55.”

Thanks for all the time and effort you put into these shows…. makes me wonder if anyone else out there is sitting on unreleased bootlegs?


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

I hope Hartford is one of them. I was there and don’t remember much of it.

I saw them in 91 and again in 04 with Hagar and that Hartford 88 show blew away the other 2, from what I remember anyway.

Would it be possible to get the drop box link? I have seen some of your other shows and they are great.

I’m sure there are plenty out there in various sized bunches, but I seriously doubt that anyone has ever filmed as many shows as CBG. He’s slowed down quite a bit in recent years, but once he got started in ’87, he regularly filmed several shows a week; and he did that for several years. And when his favorite bands toured, he would shoot several shows in a row. This is on the extreme end, but he shot 30 out of 32 shows from one leg of a Kiss tour in the early ’90s. After realizing early on that people were making money from his videos, he only released a few dozen of the early show – and 99% of the rest are unreleased.
