View Full Version : Van Halen - 1977-12-31 Hollywood 1st set on dime

I posted this on dime:


I'll just post it there since last time I tried it here, I couldn't get it to work propperly... But I suppose you all have a dime account anyway...

Last time I said I would transfer 'LA 5-13-84'. But the speed on my cassette is totally wrong and thanks to some of your comments I found out that there are better sources circulating so I won't transfer/ seed that.... This one goes instead...

How does this compare to this one?

Is this a new tape transfer? Is this a longer tape then what Lou transfered(See Ron's post above) over at DDLR? It appears there are 3 extra songs, Bullet/Drum/YRGM.

Or is this from a cdr bootleg?

Maybe Lou can chime in also.

It looks like the 3 extra songs are also on several boot LPs???

Same tape & same show, I just transferred it this afternoon, but I don't know the generation of the cassette, must have traded it somewhere in 1993-1995. I haven't downloaded the version Lou put up at DDLR, so I don't know how it compares to that.... I did indeed just recently see his post and remembered that I had the show on cassette as well, with the extra songs, that's why I transfered it...

It indeed looks like those songs were also on several boot LP's

Tracks 7-9 are really part of the second set.

The tape I transferred was acquired by the person who lent it to me in 1984.

And it took you 22 years to get around to transferring it? :D

He must've meant 1994 cause in 1984 Lou was 3 years old.. Cause you are born in 1981, right Lou?
