    Default Panama 1984 question.

    I've been putting together a mix-VH boot CD for the cd player in the car and I have been searching around for the best sound quality version of Panama from the 1984 tour that I can find. I do limited sound editing in Audacity if something needs monkey'd around with a little. Any recommendations?
    Thanks,
    -Bob

    Come to think of it, I should look for that boot myself...

    The 1/21/84 Hollywood show was pretty damn good. I haven't seen it online, but I would imagine it's out there somewhere since someone took the time to press it onto vinyl.

    I have that one, somewhere. Great performance, not a full boot, but quality's about a B+. Not as good as Quebec City, which is near-soundboard, but still one of my favorite 1984 shows. It was the beginning of the 1984 Tour, and you could just tell they were hungry

    The Hollywood show cuts out after Jump, which means no Panama, sadly for Superbird...

    I have the Quebec City boot. I've heard its the best of the 1984 tour but it sounds as if it was recorded to loud, Ed's guitar and Dave's vocals especially, almost like white noise in some places. Maybe I just have a different version of it than everyone else. I've heard parts of Madison, WI and it sounds even better, but I've never heard the whole thing. Never heard the Hollywood, FL show mentioned either.

    That's interesting, as my albums cover the entire show. I would imagine the rest of it is out there.....somewhere.

    I've seen a few torrents and all of which just had the show up to Jump. If the whole show is out there, I doubt that we'll see it.

    Not to mention, the album cover may have just been made to include the whole setlist, not so much the entire recording. That shit happens, I've run into it a few times myself

    My copy doesn't have that problem, I may go back and listen again just to be sure. I never had Madison but always wanted it, personally.

    The Hollywood show is pretty good as far as performance is concerned, one of my favorites. Quality-wise its decent, I have heard better though.

    I'll look around for it tonight and will send a clip your way. Who knows, you may be on to something, I haven't listened in awhile. But in the past I've felt it was the best 1984 boot.

    I'll see what I can do, my friend

    Thanks! Some of the keyboard songs like Jump and I'll Wait sound good on the Quebec boot (as they do on most 1984 boots I have heard), but the more fast paced rockers like Unchained, ATBL, HOP, On Fire, HFT, EWS, and PANAMA just don't too clear on my version at least. I'll shoot ya a PM with my e-mail.
