Source: I was not able to confirm if this really comes from Irvine Meadows on 29 July ’84. Judas priest also wrapped up their Defenders Of The Faith tour in Japan in September of ’84 with an identical set list, so keep your ears open and let me know if you can settle the usual XL album question: Western show or yet another undercover Live In Japan album?

1595 A: LOVE BITES / JAWBREAKER / GRINDER / METAL GODS / BREAKING THE LAW

1595 B: THE SINNER /DESERT PLAINS / SOME HEADS ARE GONNA ROLL / THE SENTINEL / ROCK HARD RIDE FREE

    Interesting… First time I have seen a Haagan Daaz ad for a heavy metal show, selling liqueur – I thought they had only ever been an ice cream company….
    Wish I could ad to the discussion since the re-emergence of reviews here, but I know little about many of the acts featured by this label, although I wonder if you will soon review a Deep Purple boot I have- A Purple Patch, I think- Japanese made, deluxe colour cover, eighties production of an eighties east coast USA gig…Meadowlands, perhaps… But I think it might be from this company / series of eighties Japanese boots….
    Thanks always for this blog, another thing I learned from this post is Judas Priest covered Green Manalishi, the Green- era Fleetwood Mac gem of a jam… Gotta respect that, it makes me want to seek this out on youtube…
    Cheers!

    • Haagen Dasz was the official sponsor for the 1984 concert season at Irvine Meadows – trying to make ice cream appear more Rock’ n Roll, I guess. That DP boot will be shown as part of the ETS label, which is next.

      I always thought that cover of Green Manalishi was quite well done, as was their cover of Joan Baez’ Diamonds And Rust. Judas priest were a cut above the rest when it comes to hard rock/heavy metal in the late 70’s and early 89’s but the outfits and the posturing always turned me off a bit. Still, Rob Halford’s voice is just a sound to behold.

      Glad to hear you are enjoying the blog – thanks for reading.
