Unknown lineage audience source, very good sound! Never available before in lossless except very privately. The instrumental opener is one of my all-time favorite Can performances! The vocal contributions from Thaiga Raj Ratnam of the Philippines are unique, to say the least. Grab this one!!

this^ is the (un)official Can live guide. By re-sharing and supporting these upgrades we continue the legacy of the music, and help encourage others to (re) discover it. By spreading the word about cited concert recordings that have yet to surface, ESPECIALLY IF you live in Germany, France or Britain, WE CAN make more appear.

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!

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 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!

Known Faults: 

Two days before the release of Darkness On The Edge Town, Bruce plays the last show of a three-night stand and his last ever performance at the Music Hall in Boston. The Music Hall was witness to a number of legendary performances from Bruce and Co. with many considering the 1977 run of shows some of the best of the era. The 1978 run of shows seems to find its’ place a notch below those shows, likely overshadowed by the eventual marathon performances and legendary FM broadcasts that have a permanent place in rock n’ roll legend. However, this show should not be overlooked due to both the quality of the capture and the tightly focused performance. 

The show has been available for many years, according to “”, first on the CDR release “Looking For That Million Dollar Sound” which ran fast, a second pitch corrected version of “Looking For That Million Dollar Sound” and a third silver CD release “Early Darkness” on Masterpiece which is apparently taken from the pitch corrected version of the second CDR release. 

This torrent release is a newly transferred version deriving from a 1st generation tape of the only known source that has been in my possession since the early 1980’s and is one of the very best captures from the “Darkness” tour or any number of tours for that matter. There have been a number of reports regarding the struggles nailing down the sound early in the tour as the tour moved to different sized venues, none of that is apparent in this capture. The sound and the taper are both dialed in from the first to the last notes. Almost no audience interference is present and to my knowledge no music is missing or cut. The tour premier of “Quarter To Three” replaces the standard early tour closer “You Can’t Sit Down”. 

For whatever reason I was having trouble dialing in the pitch on this one so I sent it off to the good professor’s lab before final mastering took place, a big thanks to Prof Goody for the pitch adjustment settings. 

Last but not least big thanks to both the original taper and the tremendous job capturing the performance and E from JEMS for the continued use of the Nak DR-01 to ensure the absolute highest quality is attained.
