    Good Enough - Live 1986

    Yet another nicely done video by sphen5150. This one uses the now familiar mix of amateur photography (from a show on August 30, 1986) with some pro shot footage (LWAN), and uses the audio track from a boot of the complete show on August 27, 1986.

    Check out more of sphen's work at:

    My fave off 5150. I don't know why they didn't play this one live more often.

    cool, never heard that extended solo section
    Any musicians near Boston / Cape Cod want to get together and play some VH? I play drums, guitar, keyboard, bass, and I sing. I want to start a VH tribute band. Contact me if interested.

    Great find. The reason they did'nt play it much live was that Ed's use of a bass A string severely warped the necks used (the necks were as usual unfinished and climate changes from gig to gig made it worse), which is also why he had numerous backups. Also, to fit the bass string, the tech also had to back off the windings down to the string core an 1/8th. of an inch to fit it in the floyds locking clamp and sometimes it would pull out when he'd use the whammy. Ed likes to stick to one or two guitars tops, and it just became too problematic to keep these things intonated, tuned, and the action stable for one song night after night. It's a great tune tho. Luv it.

    I really thought the whole show was gonna come out when they released the DVD.

    VH never throws a bone.

    Thanks for the post.

    That Montreal concert is absolutely outstanding, a FULL 5150 show. May beat LWAN as far as coolness goes, simply because you get the whole show.

    Nice find
