The following website http://crueworld.com/WEB_EN_INGLES/21%20Bootlegs/03_bootlegs_theatre_of_pain.html states: “Live Pain 85 – LP JAP (ETS 2586) promo + single – Japan promo bootleg with 2 discs and 15 songs. Come with a free limited and numbered copy of the first Motley Crue single Stick to your guns/Toast of the town with the serial number D 1.” I am not sure if this is correct or not, I have my doubts.

The above was offered on eBay as a “test pressing”. It certainly shows more effort than just an owner-produced replacement cover. If the image looks familiar, it was first used on TAKRL’s COMMAND PERFORMANCE in 1977.

Quality: Excellent audience recording, one of the finest products by ETS. However, in 2003 an alternate source surfaced that sounds even better.

Around 2010, a European bootlegger produced another vinyl version of this concert , called LAST CONCERT IN JAPAN (F185-515). The source used for this is unknown at the moment. If you know, please leave a comment.

Japan: 1985 – Julian and his band toured Japan for the first time in May & June of ’85

There are only four Julian Lennon vinyl bootlegs. This one, Now I Know What You Meant To Me on RSR, containing the Houston ’85 concert,

lennon-ju-nikwymtm

the single LP LIVE AT L.A. (also from his first US tour),

lennon-ju-lala

and the European single LP Stand By Me (Diamond Sound DS001 – 200 numbered copies, first 100 on red vinyl) recorded somewhere in 1986.

This shows how some artists end up being “hot” for bootleggers for a rather short time only, despite them still touring and perhaps even improving the quality of their official releases.
