notes:
'Remastering' information:
Main source: 2/10/1985 Bruce Tree Service / BTS source Show completely re-EQ'd, and tracks re-indexed. Tried to remove the 'transistor radio' effect a little. A lot more was done to improve this but I never list all the editing, what's the use. This 'release' is not a huge upgrade in my opinion, just some more of labour of love.

" The '85 stadium tour has received mixed reaction from diehard fans, many of whom have complained at the relative lack of intimacy in such cavernous venues; and the lack of setlist changes from night to night. I never saw any of the shows myself, but bootlegs such as this one (and the tremendous Independence Night from London '85) indicate that the band was in fact putting on some really tight and truly fun performances. Perhaps in hindsight, the larger than life '85 tour has received an undeserved reputation from the fans. The fact is that the final night in LA was a loud, powerful, energetic emotional show, and is in terms of performance equal to the best of the other BUSA tour boots I've heard. It could well be though, that the musical aspect of this kind of show is better enjoyed on bootleg than at the actual show, where there were undoubtedly tens of thousands of casual fans there more for the spectacle than the music.
