    I just got this set from KPL (great, smooth trade by the way) and I'm pretty sure it's the Montreal show from 1982. Before both Little Guitars and Where Have All the Good Times Gone Dave says what I thought was "ah, messy". Then it occured to me, he's saying "merci", which is french for thank you. Dave would obviously say "merci" in Montreal, but not likely to say it in either Virginia or Texas, where the notes speculate the show is from. So I pulled out my Assaults Montreal cd's and it's identical. I checked a few other things, things Dave said or sang, and I'm almost sure they're the same shows.

    I'm not mad at all about them being the same shows. First off, I collect them, so it's just another part of the collection. Second, I know for a fact that KPL didn't know they were the same, so I know I wasn't mislead. It's cool, I'm just feeling pretty proud about being the first one to point this out. BTW, Dave says "merci" two more times, at the end of Bottoms Up and at the end of You Really Got Me. This is definitely the Montreal show from 1982.

    BTW, Homeunit, I got your email, and your list is kicking the shit out of my list.

    Hey Glenn, I wasn't thinking that you were mislead at all

    I think I sent Fab a show he already had

    The thing that used to get me when I first started trading was that I'd get all excited about getting a new show, just to find out that it was double dutch courage for the third time

    These days I've adopted an attitude similar to yours, I collect VH boots so that's part of it

    Glenn-
    Glad you got the discs. I know we had discussed this before about the source of this show. Great detective work though...is the quality of the show the same? Like I said, I didn't have the Montreal show so I had nothing to reference. Damn bootleggers!!!

    I just listened to the Assaults Montreal '82 boot last night, and I don't ever remember him saying "merci" at any point in the show. I'll have to go check again. Is EWAV better or worse sounding than Assaults Montreal? I heard it was close to being soundboard.

    The Assaults Montreal discs are a little deeper sounding, I guess maybe bassy would be a good way of putting it. The Virgin discs sound a bit distorted in places, kinda like when the volume is too loud. Both are good quality though.

    The EWAV is edited whenever Dave goes to say the name of the city, in this case Montreal. Obviously that's how the taper, or bootlegger, is claiming the show to be from Virginia. They didn't do their homework though, since they got the Virginia date wrong.

    Thanks for checking it out Glenn. Plus EWAV is missing Romeo Delight and Jamie's Cryin'.

    2 or 3 trades ago, didn't you get a disc that you already had, but was called something different?

    hehe I know the you sent me DDC in sheeps clothing lol same show different name!

    I guess someday we'll get off our asses and make a list of all the doubles out there.

    There are shows that are the same, but recorded from different sources, or at the very least cleaned up differently, those are cool!
