Source: Supposedly recorded 19 January 1983 at the Palace Theater in downtown Los Angeles but I have my doubts, as no tangible proof of this concert, other than this Japan bootleg exists. If you know the source, please leave a comment.
What is certain is that the band held a press conference there that day, probably to announce their world tour, as photos of the event can easily be found online:
Japan: 1983 – Here’s something unusual: A triple set for playback at 45 rpm, certainly the way to go to raise the audiophile bar but not exactly cheap as another disc had to be included.
XL 1525 A: India / The main thing / Out of the blue / Both ends burning
XL 1525 B: Take a chance with me / Song for Europe / Can’t let go
XL 1526 A: While my heart is still beating / Impossible guitar / Tara
XL 1526 B: Avalon / My only love
XL 1527 A: Dance away / Love is the drug / Like a hurricane
XL 1527 B: Editions of you / Do the Strand / Jealous guy
