Notes: Surprise! With the boys playing Vancouver on the current tour a few of us old school traders thought it would be fun to bust this gem out from the same town 32 years ago.
The sound here is really good, and rivals the Fresno 3-25-79 recording. It starts off a bit rought, but it seems the taper turned his mic toward the stage and the sound gets and stays better from the middle of the first song out. There is small master tape issue on "Running With the Devil" but not too bad.
Enjoy this historic analog recording and let's hope the Vancouver May 7 shows up here soon.
