It was probably Barbara Skydell and Frank Barcelona rom Premier Talent Booking who steered those tours to the tertiary markets. SOP really when a big band has toured the same record that many times.

* God, LC sounds so much cooler when it's in the middle of the set.
* Amazing Radio Clash. Tops is really grooving.
* Who the hell is playing harmonica in Ghetto Defendant? Paul? This rules.
* Mick makes a crack about the next one being sentimental and the band goes into a great mid-tempo Stay Free. MJ's tone sounds fantastic here (and throughout this show, actually).
I've d/loaded the lossless version on the megalist and LC is corrupt :cry:

San Antonio '83 is the closest STH ever came to sounding like the album version. Something about Mick's FX that night and the more-spare (but pretty inventive) leads really clicked.

Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

In the excellent audience recording of the 1979-12-27 Kampuchea Benefit show, in the last 30 seconds of "Armagideon Time" after Joe says "by the by the by the light!", Mickey continues his organ chords and then plays Mick's guitar line on the piano on top of it. I've never heard him play it before. Interestingly, in the video of the same performance, the organ is audible, but the keyboard is not (at 3:46):

I would characterize Radio Clash from Brixton 7/30/82 as the manliest guitar sound Mick ever wrung.

If they were smart they would've secretly put Thomas Jones on the payroll and have him stand silently in the audience most shows with his hand on his chin, occasionally nodding approvingly at the stage. More fire in the belly and illegal fireworks stuffed in the Gibson with dear old Dad in the audience this show than pretty much any other that whole year. Between the chest-hairy guitar and Joe's hyper-amplified vox echo on the SBD I don't even notice that Terry sounds like he's boredly dribbling a basketball the whole set.

The special 'pass-the-mic' version of Bankrobber/Rockers Galore with Mikey's also a one-of-kind highlight.

Dammit, I can never find that bizarre photo of the band where Joe looks like a stroke victim bankrobber and Mick a drum major.

The "Police and Thieves" from the 1988, August 11th Coasters, Edinburgh, Scotland LWR gig is really good. When the audience sing the parts when the music stops it just sounds like magic. "Straight to Hell" from the same gig is also really good.

The 1980-03-07 Palladium version of WMHP has to be the definitive version. Joe's vocals are absolutely searing. There is that Lifetimes video that has a small bit of it, but I can't find it on the 'tube now.
