Thanks to tonsofsobs for the recent Hagar era VH shows! Paris 1993 is one of my favorite shows from that tour. The Zenith is a great venue, I saw VH there in 1995 (one of their few Balance tour Euro headline shows). This recording here has no know lineage (it sounds very low gen to me though), but to my ears it sounds excellent. It’s not as hot as the recording shared by tonsofsobs and has less crowd noise.

Hagar’s voice was shot at this show, so they skipped “5150″ the song. Anyone who thinks they phoned in “Unchained” in 1993 should listen to this show. The vocals are very raspy, but everyone in the band is giving it their 100%.

I’d love to see more shows from the 1993 European tour. I can seed Munich, the first show of the tour, if there’s interest, but I have nothing more. I remember this was a great tour though with some great recordings. The show from Rotterdam Ahoy was released on an incomplete silver boot. Zurich and Stuttgart I think were both taped to DAT and sounded awesome, Stuttgart also had “I Can’t Drive 55″. Copenhagen sounded good too I think. I think I remember having a not so good sounding tape of Birmingham where Hagar played “Amnesty Is Granted”, and there was a tape of the Wembley show with the Little Angels on the “All Right Now” encore. That’s what I remember, but I lost all those tapes.

I don’t know where I got this show, so it might be a repost of a fileset previously on dime.

When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?

I’m definitely interested in the Munich show and any other Sammy era recordings for that matter.

jorge: Regarding the Munich show from 1993-03-30, this is what I have.

How does it compare to the “Won’t Get Fooled Again” discs?

Ron, I haven’t listened to neither WGFA nor to boeditaper’s version in years to be honest. I’ll have to check them again tonight. :-D
