Hall And Oates ‘H2O World Tour’ ETS 2539-41




and the “inspirations” for the front and back cover art:


Japan: 1984

Source: Supposedly recorded in Los Angeles at the Universal Amphitheater on 25 April 1983 but this date may be off by a couple of days (see tour schedule below).

2539 A: Did It In A Minute / How Does It Feel / Diddy Doo Wop (I Hear the Voices) / Mano A Mano
2539 B: Rich Girl / She’s Gone / Kiss On My List / Maneater
2540 A: Mickey’s Monkey / Caravan / Everybody Needs Somebody / Sara Smiles
2540 B: Wait For Me / I Can’t Go For That / Private Lives / You’ve Lost That Loving feeling
2541 A: You Make My Dreams / Family Man

(Please note that only the track list for the first side is correct.)

The Japanese blog I took these images from made the observation that this recording would have fit on a double album. For the first time, we also have some pricing information for these ET releases: “At that time, there were two sets of 4980 yen and three sets of 5980 yen, but 6980 yen was the market price.” Meaning doubles were 5,000, triples 6,000 (but also) 7,000 …?
