As Kiss bypassed the usual Summer amphiteaters in the NY/NJ area, I made the 1 1/2 hour treck (from Nothern NJ) to Bridgeport, CT. Two very cheap seats thanks to Stubhub and my very first show at Bridgeport's Webster Bank Arena, a 10K seater used mainly for College Basketball and Minor League Hockey. It was a great show with an enthusiastic audience. Highlights for me were "Flaming Youth" (which I'd never seen them do live) and "Beth" (w/actual instruments instead of the pre-recorded background track), even if it was Eric Singer singing instead of Peter Criss. I will even admit to having a little something in my eye during the US Miliary tribute/Pledge of Allegiance segment during the encore.

This is “CBG Classic Master Video Series Vol. 44”. 

For this show, Ryan from Miami, Florida, just 16 years old at the time, wanted to come up to see a few of the Monsters of Rock shows in the northeast and go with me. He was the one who filmed all of those shows at the Hollywood Sportatorium before they tore it down when the Miami Arena was built. He had already filmed the opening night of the Monsters of Rock tour on June 4th at the Orange Bowl in Miami and mailed it to me to check out before I went to the shows in my area. That was a cool time to see shows on tape before you would get to see them in your area. No Youtube then. 

So our plan was to go to this speedway in Oxford Plains, Maine and then go the next day to the Meadowlands and see them in Giants Stadium. This was the first time Ryan had been out of the state of Florida. His parents were trusting me (being an 'adult' at age 25) to take good care of him, he was just 16 years old. At that point we had only talked on the phone. I didn’t know what he looked like and he didn’t know what I looked like. There was no facetime. Well, he flew up on June 25th and I met him at Providence Airport. It was easy to spot him as he was a tall blonde and he was wearing these short shorts and was all tan. He stood out in the Providence airport crowd. We then drove directly to Maine. The venue was out in the country in Maine. There was not adequate road infrastructure to bring this many people into this site. There was a traffic jam for miles away from the venue. We got there and Ryan brought the shoulder mount camcorder he would always use in Miami. We walked the front of the venue as Metallica was playing on stage and he decided to put his bag under the fence at one spot and then go through security and go get his bag. I went in with my camera the same way I always did, with the thing strapped on my back and wearing a lined jacket. It was sort of cool up there even in June, so it looked OK to wear a jacket. I wasn’t sweating down my arms like I was in Philly and Foxboro a couple weeks earlier. 

Everything worked out, amazingly, since we were getting in large cameras and we both got them in! To me it was a very non-traditional way of putting a bag under a fence and then going and getting it. We were in though and went to some seats in the bleachers straight on from the stage in the back of the field floor. Then it started to rain. And the temperature was dropping. Metallica had finished their set and we were up on the bleachers in the rain. I had a large hefty bag that I brought in and cut holes in the sides and bottom for my arms and head. Ryan didn’t have anything and for some reason (this is 1988), he was wearing these real short shorts. I had on pants. As I said it was cool there, maybe 58-60 degrees. And now it was raining. I think he thought it was going to be like Miami. This was Maine!! Not Miami. So I decide to film Dokken because I didn’t film them in either of the other two shows I went to in Philly and Foxboro. It was a wet, foggy show and the only heat you got was from the crowd around you. You can see the rain drops in the lens as I am filming. I just put the camcorder on my lap and covered it with the hefty bag. You can even hear the rain drops in the sound captured on the camcorder. So after the set was over, Ryan started to complain that he was cold. If you wear short shorts to Maine from Miami, yea, you will be cold when it is 60 degrees out. Plus it was raining so it was cold. He must have been even colder. So we decide to go down into the crowd on the floor thinking it will be warmer in the crowd of everyone. We work our way up front of the people holding those tarps over their heads that you can see on the floor in the Dokken video. The Scorpions hit the stage but I decided not to film that close because I didn’t want to be caught. And I didn't have a good way to cover the camera from the rain. I was there for Van Halen. After 1-2 songs, it starts to rain again and it starts to lightning real bad. You can see lightning bolts striking behind the band through the back of the stage since there was no backdrop and just a clean view of the trees. After 3 and a half songs, they stop the Scorpions and pull them off the stage really quick. The lightning booms are almost immediate right now around us and I was kind of fearful being next to this errected metal structure in an open field with the bolts coming down around us. By then I am soaked and starting to feel cold too. I thought it would be warmer in the crowd like that all huddled together, but I started to shake from the cold. After hearing Ryan complain more about being cold, and it looking like it is going to be a while until Van Halen played, if they played, we decided to leave and return to my home in Connecticut. We figured we could dry out, recharge (ourselves and our batteries) and go to the Meadowlands show the next night in NJ anyway. So that is what we did. As it turned out, we woke up the next morning and it was raining and damp at my place. We drove down I-95 to New Jersey and as we got to New Haven, it started to clear and by the time we reached the Meadowlands, it was beautiful. We ended up walking up to Giants Stadium as Dokken was onstage playing. 

It turned out that Van Halen did eventually go on stage with a big delay and played an abbreviated short set. The Scorpions never returned to the stage. It’s funny how Sammy, and most bands really, have purposely distorted memories and say things like ‘we played 2 and a half hours’ after that for the diehards who stayed. He said that in some interview later on. But I know it isn’t true at because I have the audio someone recorded of the Van Halen show in Oxford Plains and it is like 80 minutes and it is complete. That's one hour 20 minutes Sammy, Not two and a half hours. But they were diehards who stayed for that show. I believe Sammy said they were going to play 2 and a half hours in Jersey, but it was only 1 hour and 35 minutes actually. 

It was so nice to actually get in the car in Oxford Plains and change out of the wet clothes and turn on the heat in the car. What a long day, 4 hours up to the show and another hour in traffic, then 4 hours back. At least the next night in Giants Stadium was successful (already posted here as a 3 camera mix in 1988!!!) Anyway, try to enjoy this Dokken show in the rain of Oxford Plains, Maine (my one an only time there) on the Monsters of Rock tour!

Although it has been hinted at, no one really knew what Dylan was really doing in the studio between the sessions for ‘Empire Burlesque’ and ‘Knocked Out Loaded’ and because of the slump his career had taken as fashions changed, practically no-one cared, mainly the critics who were busy panning Dylan’s new output as it was received. He was saved momentarily by ‘Biograph’ but people still moaned about how his outtakes were sometimes better than his established releases, what does a guy have to do to win again? Keeping within the brief, Dylan who was still bubbling with ideas, re-entered the studio on halloween 1985 at Cherokee Studios – It has been assumed that the players were Bob Dylan (vocal & guitar), Vito San Filippo (bass), Raymond Lee Pounds (drums), Carolyn Dennis, Madelyn Quebec, Elisecia Wright (backup vocals) but that doesn’t make up for the harp playing and electric piano that you hear through these tracks – and, possibly entertained by the idea of Neil Young’s “Everybody’s Rockin'” album, Bob threw around a few ideas that seemed to be based around rock and roll, the sessions still have the nuance of a little 80’s production, and like “Empire Burlesque”, these sessions can be a lot of fun. These recordings are a heck of a lot of feeling, Dylan’s muse, while not burning like it had or would again, directs him to dismissing any worries of seriousness and instead let him and his band have a bit of fun. As it suggests in the small print of my review, these ideas are not generally, fully fleshed out, a little built maybe but certainly nothing like they might be presented for a full album – Jams possibly – You’ll notice a few begin to sound like their previous counterparts, Dylan has the lyrics but the tunes round along on each other. There are blunders as you’ll read but there are also sharp moments of clarity that you’ll catch and wonder why Dylan never actually got round to pulling them out for use. Just like most of his later output, you’ll wonder where a lot of this stuff went – Blame it on Dylan’s disinterest in looking back or for following his instant decisions but that none of these tracks have appeared again shows a distinct lack of judgment. ‘Baby Back From The Dead’ is a long jam of sorts, starting abruptly as the engineer starts the tape, the phrasing sounds like ‘Honey Don’t’ and includes a couple of pretty apt, if short, guitar solos. Backing vocals by some of the Queens of Rhythm, call and answer responses. Sounds like Dylan is having a LOT of fun. Funky drumming with plodding bassline, the middle quietens before coming screaming back, the electronic piano is much more audible in the second part of the track too. They end with a clattering full stop. ‘Nothing Here Worth Dying For (I)’ starts strongly, Dylan on his own on guitar, bringing in the rest of the band at the track blossoms but seems to come apart at the end of the last verse, it’s all strangely reminiscent of ‘Baby Stop Crying’ (Dylan’s repost to a relationship possibly or is this all about mortality?) An attempt at a solo towards the final section seems to fail quite badly before the song ends abruptly. ‘Won’t Go Back ‘Till They Call Me Back Again’. One of the catchier songs of the album with a really memorable refrain, it slows the pace down, sounding like a wet Saturday afternoon, the feeling is deeply reflective. much more ‘classically’ Dylan for it’s time, another lousy solo rears it’s head before the Queens wisely move things along again. ‘Let Me Come Baby’ sounds like it has been formed from the bones of “Won’t Go Back ..”. The same pace, mood and plaintive feel. It is very brief, while a secondary guitar takes on soloing duties this time, avoiding the clunky soloing of last time. ‘Bring It On Home To Me’ features some rather brilliant harp work by Bob, a chugging stomp and even scat singing by Dylan. It sounds like Bob gets carried away half way through as he gets too close to the mike with his harmonica and pushes the speakers to feedback. It ends to a brilliant jam a la, ‘God Knows’, sparing with the rest of the band, they bound together to a fantastic play-about finale. ‘I’m Ready For Love’, Buddy Hollyesque in style, Dylan’s vocals are mixed rather low for the first minute of this rendition, the rest of the song, well, he seems to be making it up on the spot. I’m not entirely sure that he isn’t singing about God at some point but then it begins to turn towards romance. In the end, it’s another studio groove possibly the lightest track on the CD, and at over 8 minutes long, it outstays it’s welcome a good 3 minutes or so. We also hear the notes of ‘Nothing Here Worth Dying For’ again. ’26 Storeys High’ references suicide in a pale spot of slight inspiration for Bob, at first the lyrics seem to take a little while to build but then get deeper – Is this building a ‘Shangri-La’ of sorts, are the inhabitants of this tower block all facing a slim future so have decided that the best way is down or out the door in a bag. ‘You Can Have Her’ is a beautifully dismissive track, Dylan disowning and disavowing a previous love, the frame work for the track is jittery, restless drumming, low bass notes and the very blush of an electric piano sound underneath. I’d almost suggest that you might find this on any of Keith Richards’ solo albums such is the sound. It ends at the right moment however. ‘My Sweet Baby (Round And Around)’ is ‘I’m Ready For Love’, part deux, Albet a very short version. Seriously catchy, it’s a very ‘pop’ song for Dylan, lasting a shade over two minutes, this track makes you long for just a little bit more. ‘Nothing Here Worth Dying For (II)’, seems to come from a different session, there is more hiss on this version making the whole piece a little quieter – Obviously this is still fleshing out work on the track, a near 9 minute running time throws it open for a lot more improvisation. Dylan this time is accompanied by the second guitarist, a gentle piano and the queens lilting harmonies – There is a long instrumental break towards the middle while Dylan gently noodles in the background. ‘You Can Have Her II’ The hiss disappears again, the tracks begins with a little studio noise and one of the queens saying, ‘That was nice ..’before the tracks begins. This time, Dylan is not alone and the girls harmonising starts pretty much immediately with Dylan’s vocals. Full of funky drum work, gnarled guitars. ‘Find Me’ begins with a choppy call and response guitar and piano duet, the lyrics seem to be about someone who Dylan already knows but who doesn’t quite know him yet. ‘Nothing Here Worth Dying For III’ – The most embellished of the versions found here, we found Dylan accompanied with second guitar at first then, after a few lines, with the organ and the Queen’s harmonies – This is the closest it gets to sounding like a finished article. Obviously Bob wasn’t over enthused by it however or lost his patience and left it alone after – Maybe we might hear a different version on ‘Biograph 2? some day as after the track ends, we hear Dylan resume the piece again before the tape cuts out. ‘Right Hand Road Bues’ Fading in slowly, this much more standardised-for-the-era Dylan track is a fast blues, piano high in the mix, another of the tracks where it sounds like Dylan is having fun again. Full of whimsy, giddiness and rhythm. ‘That’s All’ A rest for Dylan’s pen, a rendition of Brandt and Haymes’ original, it’s just Bob, the second guitarist, piano and drummer, maybe it’s an after hours play, the sisters have left while Dylan has given out the rest of his ideas and decided, just as the night winds down to give this a spin. It’s lovely to hear Dylan really singing again as he once did – Were we to know that’s nearly all he would do come 2016?

About this one tape, I got it, along with two others from 2 others shows from the following nights of the same Japan Leg of the 1983 Breaking Point Tour during my brief trading days in the mid nineties. If this fellow trader evers reads this, may he forgive me for forgetting his name, but may he be blessed. He recorded those 3 shows. Sound quality isn't the best (at most a B) but they tell the tale of a 1983 Iggy on the verge of a much needed break (from recording and touring as well as some substances) who gets to meet his then-future, now-ex, wife Sushi. On one of the shows he clearly mentions her being there and introduces her to the audience.

This show has the lowest quality of the three tapes. Some cuts on the opener Fire Engine, during No Fun and beetween Loose and I'm bored are present on my copy and come from the master tape. There is also a rare gem : the "Bo Diddley" that you don't hear at every Iggy gig.

Guns N' Roses - 2016-04-09 - Las Vegas, NV (DVDfull aud-shot)

(DVDfull aud-shot)

Guns N' Roses 
2016 Las Vegas: Double Shot - XAVEL Silver Masterpiece Series
Catalog Number: SMS-069f - DVD #2 Liberated Bootleg
April 9, 2016
T-Mobile Arena
Las Vegas, Nevada

Lineage = 2016 Las Vegas: Double Shot DVD #2 [Silver] -> DVD Decrypter -> YOU

Four In-Ear Monitor feeds + original AUD capture = Matrix Audio Recording + Multi-Cam Audience Video Recording
Sound Quality 10/10 - Double Shot is superior to all other GNR 2016 Las Vegas sources out there, including Sin City Illusion I & II.

The April 9th IEM+AUD Matrix sounds significantly better than the April 8th recording.
Axl's In-Ear Monitor is up front in the mix!
To my ears, this recording is simply outstanding!
If you only download ONE 2016 Guns N' Roses live recording, this should be it!!
This may be better than a dry soundboard capture.
You decide....

NOTE: The Double Shot cover is shown on screen between virtually every song! 
There is also a small XAVEL watermark on the lower right side of the screen for the duration of the video.
XAVEL must want people to be well aware of who produced this DVD.

I am *extremely* disappointed that 155 minutes of video content was crammed onto one DVD5 disc.
If XAVEL was insistent on using the obsolete DVD format for Double Shot, a DVD9 disc would have been much more appropriate. 

The main angle is once again the wide angle full stage shot from the back of venue.
This angle reminds of me of those Montreal concert videos from the 80s that were shot by Pierre.
The second angle is slot from the lower level section right in front of the stage on Slash's side.
This angle looks AWESOME!! 

Unfortunately, this angle is only shown for about 20% of the show, it was also lifted from Youtube.

The April 9th video is superior to the April 8th DVD.
Everything clicked for the band, filmers, and tapers, in the audience on Saturday April 9, 2016! 

Please feel free to re-author this release onto a DVD9 or 2 DVD5 discs using the Double Shot lossless audio as a PCM soundtrack. All I ask, is that you provide me with a copy of the finished product.

While hanging out with Limulus in Las Vegas on the eve of the Guns N' Roses Double Shot at T-Mobile Arena, I recall mentioning that I had a good feeling XAVEL would be on site capturing IEM feeds of both nights. Upon learning XAVEL did in fact capture IEM feeds of both GNR Sin City reunion shows, I immediately placed my order for 2 of the pressed 4CD/2DVD Las Vegas 2016: Double Shot packages.

I'd like to encourage XAVEL to release both Double Shot video recordings on a single pressed 50GB Blu-Ray disc.I'd happily buy the GN'R Vegas 2016 performances if they were released in full HD/Hi-Vision.The XAVEL GN'R Vegas video source material definitely has potential!!

I'd like to STRONGLY encourage Guns N' Roses Inc. to release both Las Vegas 2016 gigs in Blu-Ray/DVD/CD/Digital Download format. Releasing the Vegas reunion shows would be easy money and would eradicate these pesky bootlegs!

Wellcome to second DETOUR concert in Spain.This is the second of three.This show was very nice too, but Elvis has some problems with his voice in a different points of the show.But, nothing important.As usual he changed some of the songs from the Zaragoza show.He play also Alison a capella walking arround the venue.He explain that he was at the McCartney show three days before in Vicente Calderon Stadium in Madrid. I know that Elvis arrived at the venue at 17 h more or less because I see the van outside of the venue with the warning lights.This venue is a old Cinema in the Atocha Street and theres no backstage door.His outfits arrived from the laundry by taxi at 17.20 . After wait for some time ouside I decided go back to the hotel because it was very hot day.I'll be back at the venue at 19.45 and I talk a little with the guy who sold the merchandising about the tour and after that I go in to talk with the mixing desk tech.Who explain me that they liked very much the show who do in Zaragoza the last night.I ask him for the set list and he promis to give one. The venue is and old cienema converted in a music theatre but twowers of ligts that he used in Zaragoza this time are not on the show.But the ilumination was nice too. Elvis say that the piano he use on these tour it's from she's wife and she give them for that tour with the condition that he go back home safe. As usual on this tour they explain some of the songs before to sing.

Notes by the taper:
This was the most physically uncomfortable gig I've been to in a long while, and that includes last week's three Heaton Park gigs, which involved hours of standing, braving the rain and a 6½ km walk back to the hotel each night.

In fact, some rain would have been most welcome at this gig, which was absolutely sweltering. It was oppressive enough outside on the street, but inside the sold-out Paradiso, one could barely draw breath.

Add to that a fever, no time to grab a meal ahead of the gig and the inability to remove layers of taper's armour once inside, and you have a recipe for extreme discomfort.

Thankfully, Patti was in blinding form and took my mind off these details for the better part of two hours. There were a couple of moments halfway through that I did feel physically sick, but these thankfully passed without incident.

I can't write volumes about this gig, because my perception was dulled and I therefore haven't committed as much to memory as I normally would have. For this reason alone, I'm glad to have taped the occasion, because I can now relive the evening in the comfort of my own home.

And so can you, dear listener.

Patti's set obviously drew heavily on her new record, 'Banga', but there were plenty of crowd-pleasers in there, too, such as the opener, 'Dancing Barefoot', 'Because The Night', 'Rock 'N' Roll ******', 'Gloria' and others.

As far as the crowd were concerned, Patti could do no wrong. Every song, old or new, was greeted enthusiastically. This enthusiasm is perfectly captured by the recording, which sounds like it might be a misleading taper euphemism for 'there's a lot of annoying audience noise', but that's not what I mean.

Patti played for close to two hours. Ordinarily, my attitude would be 'the longer, the better', but on this particular occasion, I was dying inside and could not wait to get out of the building, into the fresh air, and make a beeline for the Wok To Walk for a much needed noodle boost.

The recording is amazing. Tapers tend to hear their own recordings with silk ears, but once you've listened to the samples, you may find you agree with me. This is undoubtedly amongst my best work.

Listening to the gig now, it sounds like something I might have recorded from the radio. I cannot believe the clarity these new CCM 41V microphones are capable of and am absolutely blown away by them. They're not the easiest of microphones to use for stealthy recordings, but are more than worth the extra effort.

2. Remastering info
See the origins of each track listed up on the Set-List in detail.
We have received multiple audio sources from Osaka T who had initially asked us to re-master his precious low-generation audio visual materials. As instructed by him, we applied the minimum amount of re-mastering processes (volume adjustment & channel control). If you believe that you could do the better job, please feel free to do so. But before you do, please read what Osaka-T has to say about the recordings and the instructions he gave us for the re-mastering process:

Osaka T’s explanations and instructions:
More than ten years ago I received this pro-shot video (stereo) from this person in Canada who was part of the gangs originally shelling out loads of cash to get this video from somebody close to the stones camp (HIS STORY ABOUT THE SOURCE ORIGIN NOT CONFIRMED by MICKEY). The picture quality of the video is pretty good but not perfect because my friend in Canada did not have a top-notch VCR to make a professional, high-quality copy but the sound quality is truly amazing. It took some time but eventually I was granted the permission to share an audio of this video with other stones fans.
A few months after started sharing, I saw a couple of Japanese bootlegger release an audio of this show at first and audio-visual materials later. Back then I just thought they had obtained the same materials with more or less same quality from somebody else, and soon forgot all about it.

Quite recently I just read **the Guide Book for Rolling Stones Bootleg 1961-2013 and learn that Soldier of Stones by Vinyl Gang Product (VGP-199) was chosen to be the best sound source with the following explanations;

Soldier of Stones by Vinyl Gang Product (VGP-199)
The first version; the STEREO soundboard recording combined with audience recordings (Rock and A Hard Place, Ruby Tuesday and all the tracks from Sympathy for the Devil forward)
The second version; the MONO soundboard recording combined with audience recordings of two tracks (Rock and A Hard Place & Ruby Tuesday)

According to the guidebook, the commercially bootlegged source contains only MONO recordings of the later half show. I just scratched my head and started digging more. Then I got a first version of Soldier of Stones from a good friend of mine and realized that VGP version sounds far less good than the one I got from a Canadian friend (especially the latter half of the show sounds awful). To be fair and square to VGP, please take some time to listen to the attached files to see my point.




We do not mind you uploading these shows on DIME but I have to remind you that it should be granted on one condition; try your best to keep the original as original as you can. These are low generation copies. Once you use fancy computer software to alter the sound and release it to the trading community (or seed it by torrent). No matter how much re-mastering-wizard you are or how much good intention you might have, you would end up polluting the trading pool. The last thing we should do is to get people too confused to see which one is which. I would rather keep these files as original or as a base point people could get back to anytime they feel they like to re-master these files on their time and space.
Please make a complete show patching in the missing pieces off a several bootleg sources I will soon upload on a file-sharing site. Take care.

**Guide Book for Rolling Stones Bootleg 1961-2013 was written by one of the world-renowned Rolling Stones bootleg scholars, Mr. Hara who explored ALL the commercially bootlegged materials thoroughly to shed the light even on the trivial facts of Stones audio history. His guide book dose not only help people pick the best materials on the market but also fill the gap on the profound musicological significance of the band.

Asked by Spider
>Just trying to determine why this became a 'Frankenstein' patchwork project rather than using the main source for the whole thing.

The video Osaka T got is incomplete missing a few tracks. Osaka T asked us to patch up it with other sources. As far as Osaka T knows, there are two versions circulating among the selected number of stones fans. Both versions are incomplete missing several tracks with short or long cuts here and there. Here is what we learned from Osaka T.

The first one (the version used for this torrent) circulated largely among North American tape traders
Stereo or Mono: STEREO
Missing Tracks: Rock & A Hard Place, Ruby Tuesday, I Wanna Hold You, Little Queenie, Let It Bleed
Cuts: The Last Time (the whole part except the ending), Show Intro (short cut), Band Introductions (the only Lisa Fischer part omitted)

The Second one (a commercial bootleg DVD version) circulated world-wide
Stereo or Mono: MONO
Missing Tracks: Ruby Tuesday, I Wanna Hold You, Little Queenie, Let It Bleed, The Last Time
Cuts: Rock and A Hard Place (the whole part except intro), Band Introductions (the Lisa Fischer & Chuck Leavell part omitted), Show Intro (shorter cuts than the first version’s)

Given the fact that the same time-counter appears on both versions, we believe that the same person made the original copies of both versions with the professional high-quality VCR. We also think that that person made two copies individually and manually. That’s why the length of cuts and the cutting points on the target tracks of both versions are similar but different.
As for stereo and mono difference, we believe that it could have been transferred from stereo to mono when the NTSC-format video was converted to the PAL format one. Our assumption is based on the fact that the second version was initially offered from this Englishman whom Osaka T had known for some time as a reputable tape-trader. Osaka T remembered his fellow Englishman complained “a good STEREO VCR is hard to find in England” when Osaka T got a copy from him. Since Osaka T. lost the contact with him ever since his fellow Englishman got too busy taking care of his sick wife to do a tape-trading, there is no way to know for sure.
Surely we would all appreciate it if somebody shows up with the STEREO second version.
