    Default Romeo Delight - KILLER Live version 1981

    I just posted this in "Van Halen On The Tube", but thought it was a Main topic.

    This is probably my favorite live version of Romeo Delight. The middle breakdown is on another level.

    I can only imagine how kickass the rest of the show is.



    If you're reading this Jeff, can you provide any additional info regarding this Romeo Delight performance from October 6, 1981?

    Was there more audio captured that night? Is somebody holding on to the tape? How did you come to acquire just this one song?

    1981 is so criminally under-represented as far as VH bootlegs go (as is 1980). And this performance is off the charts. They are at the absolute PEAK.

    It would be a shame if the tape was sitting somewhere collecting dust.

    Probably my favorite live version that I've heard as well. The Mighty Van Halen at their absolute peak. Would love to have an entire FW show of this quality.

    That's good stuff right there.

    That jam in the middle of the song was excellent!

    Just such a shame we didn’t get a live album during this time. Absolutely killer.
