    And honestly from the Dave years I’d say the south America 1982 tour was the best after the first tour.

    The footage I have seen and heard of their South American shows from January and February 1983 are outstanding.

    They were playing for the world on that tour. They were playing at a different level. I really like secrets from those shows. Good shit.

    As a fan who grew up in the Hagar era and hadnít seen the original lineup live it was incredibly easy to dismiss the Roth era as a live band as literally the only pro shot show that circulated was the US festival.

    I remember being 15 years old watching it and thinking how terrible they were. Now I know better of course but it was a glaring contrast to Live Without A Net.

    Always loved the Montevideo bootleg. Played that cassette out.
