Great versions!

In conjunction with Isolar 2's release of the May 18, 1983 show, here is the 19th in similar quality. This was sent to me in low gen form, I believe three times off the master. These shows are historic considering the original Serious Moonlight setlist is featured, which was drastically shortened as the official tour kicked off in Frankfurt 2 days later. The Frankfurt show dropped great songs like 'Joe The Lion', 'Soul Love' which would not stay in the setlist. Others like Look Back In Anger would not re-appear for a couple of months. These shows are a must if you are a Bowie collector of any kind....There are 34 songs but no song 18, making for a 33 song setlist.

4. Mickeyfs Notes: 
I was delightedly surprised with Whitesnakefs last show from Japan Tour 2013. Rumor has it Davidfs pipe was complete toast and his singing would get progressively worse, and then the worst would be most likely to be the last show (Osaka). So I was strongly advised to avoid the last gig and to get a ticket for the first or the second to the last show. 

To be fair to Coverdale, he was suffering from severe vocal fold edema and a left vocal fold vascular lesion IN THE PAST. I knew that many of loyal Whitesnake fans cried out begging them to throw in the towel at numerous shows IN THE PAST. But that was then, this is now. Some say he fully recovered and has gotten his voice back. So I took a quick look at the latest picture of him on his facebook and wondered gHow the hell he looks so young and hairlycHe looks dumb good to be a pushing 60 year old rocker. So I figured "I should check this band at the most convinienet venue, Orix Theater, Osaka (30mins away from my house). And no matter what, at least I could say I saw his act one last time. Whatever will be will be" 

The show was SOLD OUT. Orix Theater Osaka was completely packed with total different age groups from seemingly totally different walk of life. I also saw a couple of 8-10 year old boys and girls with their 30 to 50 something year old parents. The variety of the audience in different age group reflects upon this bandfs long successfully carrier and creation of loyal fans in different generation in Japan. 

Just like any other good show, as the show time approached, I could feel the boiling excitement and anticipation forming the good vibe on the floor. When the light was out and the Whofs My Generation announced the opening of the show, Coverdale and his mates sneaked out on the stage in the dark. I could not see much with dimmed lights but Coverdale looked very healthy and fit kitted with the regular; the tour shirt. The opening chords and the thunderous drums of GIVE ME ALL YOUR LOVING TONIGHT blasted through the stacks on the stage. Coverdale moved around and covered the whole stage with the massive energy and finesse of a man half his age. Coverdale was in top form and clearly up for the job. Aldrich and Beach newly added on board, Davidfs voice was sounding full, strong and most of all convincing. Every now and then Coverdale seemed to take a break or rest his voice in the middle of guitar or drum solo during a 90 min show. It was rather short but surely worthy of checking it 

5. Tapersf & Sound Editorsf Notes: 
Recorded from this venuesf only one sweet sound spot with MK4 and Nbox combo. It all turns out to be one of the best recordings this year. The low end might sound a tad thinner than it should be but this is exactly how it sounded that night. Highly recommended for all of Whitesnake fans. Get it quick and crank the volume all the way up!!

WARNING: in italian radio customes the DJ speaks a lot in-between songs. And I mean a lot.. Her purpose is to introduce songs and translate what the artists say. It may gets VERY annoying, and trust me it does, thus we might consider this recording ONLY FOR COMPLETISTS. But the songs, the actual music, are (usually) not spoken over in the middle of them.

Notes by the taper:
The last Megadeth concert I recorded and posted here, I said that I've grown a little tired of them. Well, this has put an end to Megadeth concerts for me. The same old songs played to death in previous tours continued to be played to death but now in lower keys to accommodate Dave's weary voice. Tempos somewhat slowed for some tunes. It's just not what it used to be. Sorry to all my fellow Megadeth fans out there but MegaDave has become just ... Dave. It's time to throw in the towel. The only entertaining thing about this concert for me was Dave occasionally ripping into the fans (who deserved it, of course). It was hilarious and everyone else around me thought the same. 

The sound guy, on the other hand, was a complete dickhead. Absolutely ZERO capability. You will find Dave's vocals are all over the place, mostly non-existent. Zero control over the dynamics, phasing and can't even find the damn fader to open the bloody mic!!!!!!! Sorry, I can only do so much. The guitars were also all over the place, mostly too harsh. Sorry, I can only do so much with that too. The kick drums, as friggin' always, were just too damn boomy and Dave E's bass was somewhere in that mix but again, I can only do so much. 

Overall, I give the sound a rating of D. It sucks. I only went to record it for those who requested it. Take a listen to the sample and if it still whets your appetite, do as you please. All feedback appreciated as always.

notes There will likely be some doubt about the show date, but I'm fairly certain that the dates were rearranged due to the illness that was going on with Buck and Eric. I remember calling a friend the next day, saying that the shows in Columbus and Dayton might be cancelled due to their poor health. They weren't, but perhaps should have been. Some bands brag about how few shows they've had to cancel, but perhaps it's not always something to be proud of. As in this case.

Stadthalle, Stolberg, Germany, 15 February 1979

Interesting show one day before the famous Rockpalast performance.
Complete concert, although I am not 100% sure if Angel of mercy is missing at the end of the concert. There are some notes to hear, but it seems this is not live but music played in the venue after the band has left the stage. There’s quite some tape hiss, but still a very listenable audience recording. Still an extremely rare recording, taken from mastertape.

Third show into the Communiqué Tour and a mere three days before their Rockpalast show. I have never seen this one circulating so I thought it would be a good addition to the Vintage Series. How can we possibly talk about the 70's / 80's without mentioning The Dire Straits? The first two tours in the 70's were stunning, pure, raw, classy. That was also the last tour featuring David Knopfler. That was still a time where the band was playing small venues. After that, the band begun to be huge in the 80's and lost a bit of momentum (IMO). When I saw them on the last tour in 1992, the magic seemed to be gone. 

In this show they played 5 (!) encores, included the rarely played Angel of Mercy. 

Soundwise this is ok but not great. Music comes out clear although a bit boomy. I would rate 8 out of 10.

To put it simply, the sound quality of the sound check party is great but the one of the concert is not that great. 
Surrounded by a group of sea-lion whose brains must have been permanently damaged by the Beatles music could not help barking at the site of their life-long idol, it was extremely difficult to make an even decent recording at the show. Recording right next to this big guy who constantly made a series of unpleasant barking or moaning sounds, this recoding is not suitable to listen with headphones….We decided to let the uploader share this one because too many people asked him to do so….
