    As far as I know, Mean Street was only played live on the Fair Warning and 3 tours. All you ever heard on the Diver Down boots was Ed playing the intro in his solo. He also played that on the WACF boots.

    Mean Street is on the Assaults Montreal boot, but it's at the end and it's actually from a 1981 concert. I agree with KPL, I don't think it was played after the Fair Warning tour. Frankly, it's one song that I don't think Dave did very well live.

    Good point Glenn-
    Dave just couldn't capture that same "anger" of the vocals on the album live. The version on the Providence 81 show is far from stellar. Another song that wasn't up to par live IMHO was "And The Cradle Will Rock". Despite all the Cherone bashers, I thought his version of the song on the 3 tour was incredible. Of course, Ed playing the solo virtually note for note with the same feeling it had on the album didn't hurt either.

    Classic examples of what Dave talked about in his book-where it didn't matter if you knew the words or not, if you had the right attitude and rhythm going, it didn't matter. In "Mean Street", he messes up the third verse but makes something up - and he practically makes up a whole new verse on "Little Dreamer" on this boot.

    They played Mean Street on both the Caracas '83 AND Sao Paulo, Brazil '83 shows. It was cool.
