It has come to my attention that some members do not have high speed access and are missing out on some of the gems here. With that in mind, I will offer up these two awesome shows. Thanks to Lou and jamhead64 @easytree for sharing these shows.

Notes:
This is a commonly circulated show; however nothing except the master
compares to this version, a 1st generation cassette. This terrific, warm,
SB-like audience recording captures the band "On Fire," opening up the
1979 World Vacation tour. This would be the band's first performance of
"Light Up The Sky," "Dance The Night Away," "Beautiful Girls," "You're
No Good" and "Outta Love Again." This show is also the only recorded
1979 performance of "D.O.A." The extended intro to "You Really Got Me" is quite nifty...the tone and style of it sounds as if Ed was deliberately
trying to sound like the Kinks' original. Bottoms Up! also has a cool
intro as well as part of "I'm The One" thrown in the middle...these are all
reasons why this show, and this 1st gen version, is a must-have for any
VH fan.

Ed took his guitar playing to another notch in 1979. There's definitely
something different about it...it's damper, more elastic-sounding.

For those who are wondering, there's no doubt in my mind that the "Live
And Loud" bootleg is a couple of generations higher. In my opinion,
there's also too much treble in the equalization of "Live And Loud." This
being a lower generation, I contend it's warmer and richer than that
bootleg despite the equalization that was done to it. "Live And Loud"
also has slight tape drag for the last few tracks whereas this does not.
I'm not sure why "Ice Cream Man" is cut at the tail end here whereas
it's not on "Live And Loud." The bootleg "On Fire In Fresno" also has
this cut.

Some notable Daveisms:
After "Runnin' With The Devil": "We've been celebrating backstage. How
about you, you've been celebrating? I see somebody right here, he's
offering a celebration."
After "You're No Good": "Well that sure ain't Linda Ronstadt style, I'll tell
ya."
During "Feel Your Love Tonight": "I think my pants are coming undone
in the back. This is most embarrassing, man."

Credits:
Thanks to Tim O. in NY for the 1st gen version.

i got this show from a friend of my girlfriends. he was a doorman years ago in nyc, and gave me a stack of van halen tapes from their 78 tour of england opening for black sabbath.

these tapes belonged to somebody who worked for the band during this time. guess he left stuff at his fathers place, and they had some sort of falling out and dad started giving all his sons stuff away that was just taking up space. guess the tapes sat in a closet for years after and are now being put to cd and over time should find their way into the homes of many.

i want to say that these are soundboard recording, but might just be high end audio stuff. im not really sure what was being used in 78 to tape shows, but most stuff that is not sbd usually sounds like crap, and these do not at all. im not sure of the gens on the tapes either, but think they are either masters or 1st gens. i do not want to start any false info about the tapes, just want people to know what i know.

anyways please do not convert to mp3 or sell this.

There was some talk about sending vines out as flac files to avoid any digital generations. How would you like these sent out as flac files or the audio discs.

Perhaps I could include the flac frontend on the disc. I would have to look into that since it has been a while since I installed that on my system.

Let me know your thoughts.

Thanks Ron for getting these new vines going. It is a HUGE help for us 56k dial up guys.

As soon as I get the disks I will send them out to the next person to sign up. Let's try to do these vines like they do at DDLR.com, only sign up if you can try to get the disks on to the next person within 3 days or so(a reasonable amount of time), lets keep these shows moving so everyone can get a copy.

Also most of us dial up guys are unfamilar with FLAC. It might be easier to just send the standard cd. We will just pass on the master disk to the next person. That person will make a copy for themselves and pass on the Master disk as you have outlined in the Vine rules.

Thanks again

I have never been involved with a vine before, but I would like to be apart of this.

Could I get both shows sent to me? I have read that Rush thread and I believe I get a copy of the disk sent to me, I copy it and pass it on?

I'm sorry, I'm new here...

Hello victimofscience,

I'd love to get it. Their loss is my gain. I always liked the CDR bootleg version I have - "Live and Loud", and I am excited to hear an upgrade. I sent my mailing address via private email. I live/work near Philadelphia.

victimofscience
02.27.05, 03:17 PM
Lukeman and chewie-

PM Robmisra with your address. He should have the discs in a few days. You can sort out who gets the discs next. I hope that you both resurface and can get a copy of these shows eventually - both kick ass.
