Japan: 1984/5

Source: 2nd night at NY’s Madison Square Garden, 31 March 1984 – no disagreement here to what the cover claims. Rock Solid Records from Canada would release the first night at MSG as Where’s The Beef, Dave?

1581 A:  Unchained 4:03 / Hot For Teacher 6:54 / On Fire 3:03 / Runnin’ With The Devil 4:38 / Little Guitars 6:12 (incl. ‘Cathedral)
1581 B: House Of Pain 3:53 (listed as Secrets) / Bass Solo 4:53 / Jamie’s Cryin’ 3:22 / I’ll Wait 6:45 / Everybody Wants Some!! 4:17
1582 A: Girl Gone Bad 6:02 / 1984 1:00 / Jump 4:19 / Guitar Solo 15:20
1582 B: (Oh) Pretty Woman 3:11 / Panama 4:44 / You Really Got Me 6:23 / Ain’t Talkin Bout Love 4:56

Quality rating: Excellent, stereo (by VHboots.com)

I had always assumed that the UD/XL titles were usually pressed in a quantity of 200 copies (less perhaps for a few titles) but the website mentioned above claims “Under 100 copies produced”.

The title seemed to have struck a note as later there would be bootlegs named HALEN HEARTY 86 and HALEN HEARTY II (to be presented later when we get to teh Japanese ETS label)

If the date 22 April 1986 is correct, this would originate from Chicago’s Rosemont Horizon. Is this really a U.S. made bootleg?

    I’ve been a Van Halen vinyl collector for 37 years.
    This indeed is an “Aud/Ex” recording, and better sound quality,
    then show from MSG the night before.
    Entitled “Wheres The Beef Dave”.
    That recording in and of itself is not a bad recording (also an audience source),
    but “Halen Hearty” definitely has the edge on sound quality!
