    Default Van Halen - Live in Memphis, TN September 1, 1981 UPGRADE

    Has anyone else seen this. I never knew that anything existed for this besides the 3 videos from Oakland. Granted it is not the best quality but it is better than anything I have ever seen for a full show.

    Yes in the last few weeks there's been discussion about this new video in other threads. Opinions are divided. While it's awesome just for getting overall feel and visuals of the show, some feel the fact that the video is only one camera and from a fair distance means the video is not that great. I personally watched it last weekend and enjoyed it a lot.

    Yup this upgrade came out in 2012. It's golden compared to what was out before of this show (super VHS wavy lines before). But nearly a full FW show....is heavenly

    This cleaned up stuff is pure gold.
    I'm still picking up my jaw from the floor, over the '79 footage.
    Absolutely amazing what technology can now accomplish.

    I love this video, but was sooooo disappointed when I got to the end and Unchained and ATBL weren't there.

    Brother JD, i feel ya!

    A FW show minus "Unchained" is like having sex with Katy Perry with her shirt on.

    Actually, this '81 beast is still STUNNING to view.
    I still say they peaked on that tour, meaning not only for themselves, but
    over every other band in existence.

    I agree. That was THE greatest live band ever right there on that tour.

    I still say the 81 show I attended was the greatest concert of my life! The first huge stage and a new sound system. They were ON FIRE that night I saw them. No other band has come close, and I have seen alot over the decades. I was fortunate to see them 3 times on the next tour, which was very good, but the FW tour, with that killer set list and the band covering every single inch of that gigantic stage they so deserved was the best!

    Between this video and the 79 footage, I have been like a kid in the candy store this past week or so! I know that some have thought the 3 Oakland videos were "touched up" vocally, I have always thought they were untouched. I think if you watch this video it will prove it. I specifically watched HAIL over and over, and it sounds like the video. There were no vocal problems back then.I was there, and I know it. Dave's voice was fine and I think these videos prove it, especially when you see how much they moved and jumped around. Yes Dave got winded and didn't sing a few verses, but they weren't piping this shit in like Madonna and Britney, etc.!

    Can you imagine when the true upgrade (like the Fresnos) gets unleashed for this muthafucka?!

    So cool seeing the whole stage for that tour, when the city lights get turned on, and of course especially how they performed. Best live band of all time. Fact.

    When did Ed start adding the scissor kicks?

    Was he doing them in the early days?

    For some reason, I wanna say 1980? The very little footage we have of '78/'79, not a trace of the scissor kick.

    I bought a pair of those red & white striped lacrosse socks after I saw Eddie wearing them in 1981. I must have looked like an idiot wearing them in public. Yes, more idiotic than usual, Cabo Chris and Dave's Dreidel.
