  1. Well, I don't think it's official merch since it lists 10/17 Troubadour where Bruce made a guest appearance with the Knack....and 8/25 Toad's Place where Bruce and Clarence joined Beaver Brown after their own show.
  2. I asked Arthur Rosato about video and film on BITUSA tour and this answer came this morning: "Hi!! It was all shot on video. We used mostly 3/4 inch NTSC standard. In Europe we used 3/4 inch PAL standard. When we did special event recordings we used 1 inch NTSC standard. When it came time to edit I had all these different formats so it looked different from each other so maybe it looked like film on occasion. Sorry for the technical stuff but that explains the different looks. Thanks for checking in. Hope you're well."
  3. I was just checking the top-rated shows on the site....I definitely have to "dig through" my external hard drives to see if I have the mjk5510 version of 1984-11-26 Dallas.
  4. I was just listening to the JEMS version - it's as good as an official recording.
  5. Signed up - seems like a lot of fun, plus helpful (especially to those starting out).
  6. Thank you, @Daisey Jeep - you are the sweetheart of this place. I was born on a Sunday so supposedly my life is all wonderful all the time.
  7. Thank you, @el sergio Oh dear, all those dots....
  8. Thank you so much, @JimCT - your words mean a lot to me.
  9. September 11th is my birthday and I have a tradition of starting it with the album version of "Thunder Road" so that's what is playing right now.
  10. I'd love Sheffield 1988-07-09. There is no good quality audio of it except for the Spare Parts single. Just watching the 1st set on DVD (watched 2nd set and encores the other day). Bruce plays a unique harmonica solo during "Boom Boom"...Later in the intro to "You Can Look" talks about his father for the only time on the tour in this particular intro. Devils & Dust-show would make me happy too.
  11. I have the Anthology pretty well memorized from my youth but don't remember anything like that but I'm getting old and my mind might be going. This is intriguing, though. Do you have a sort of time frame for this? I mean was it definitely before ESB breaking up or could it be during the Other Band era? I enjoy a bit of detective work like this.
  12. I've never heard of or seen footage from a soundcheck in Japan in 1985. Might have been in a news broadcast at the time but Bruce used to be a control freak back then so hard to imagine some news crew filming him while he was trying to hear what the sound is like...but, hey, weirder things have happened.
