    Van Halen 2013.06.21 Smash Up The Typhoon Tokyo

    This apparently is an audience recording of the same show that will be on the soon to be released official album. So if you want a preview of what it will sound like (aside from the typical useless crowd noises that usually plague audience recordings.... but at least the annoying drunks will be yelling in Japanese this time)

    Notes (from vhboots.com)
    •Audience recording, excellent stereo sound.
    •Multiple IEM sources were matrixed with an audience source to complete this incredible recording. The audience recording was released separately under the XAVEL-213 label.
    •The "SMS" in the label name stands for "Silver Masterpiece Series".
    •Disc 2, tracks 12-14 are bonus tracks from Aichi Prefectural Gymnasium, in Nagoya, Japan performed on June 18, 2013. The inclusion of these tracks are meant to have a complete record of all the songs the band played on their 2013 Japan tour. These three tracks were not performed at the Tokyo show, but were performed on the other dates.
    •Disc 2, track 15 is from the pre-show Soundcheck at the Tokyo Dome. It mostly consists of Dave strumming an acoustic guitar and practicing Japanese. He does start Ice Cream Man near the end of the track.
    •Front cover shows a background of the Tokyo Dome exterior in red and black along with a portion of the Japan Naval flag above. A gray scale image of Dave and Edward is superimposed over top. The VH logo and show title appear centered in the upper half of the cover.
    •The inside of the booklet contains a bunch of gray scale shots of the band, and of the venue. Some are promo shots not directly related to this specific show, while others are from this show.
    •The back of the booklet contains the rest of the Tokyo Dome and Naval flag image from the front. A VH logo is present, along with details about the recording.
    •The under-tray image has a black background. The red and black image of the Tokyo Dome appears in a centered gold circle, with a gold VH logo over top.
    •The rear artwork continues the same Tokyo Dome and Naval flag theme, but now contains an image of the band from the end of a show. Over top of that is the set list and information about the bonus tracks.
    •Disc 1 has the Tokyo Dome image in red and black within a black circle with a gold VH logo over it.
    •Disc 2 has the Tokyo Dome image in gray and black within a red circle with a gold VH logo over it.
    •Released in July 2013.

    This is pretty good ... surprisingly. Chinatown is pretty funny (and bad at the same time) - in the video made by cato dave sounds like he's off key, on this recording it isn't so apparent.

    Yeah, after listening to the whole thing, it's pretty good for an audience recording. Vocals & guitar are very clear. Only deficiencies are in the bottom end. Bass & drums are there... but kinda flat. So I'd still probably buy the official album..... IF (and only if) I can get it without having to buy goddamned 1984 again.

    What pisses me off, is that the "bonus" tracks included here, they sound like they might actually be professional soundboard recordings, and if that's the case, then why in the name of fuck don't they put them on the official album, and take the two overplayed goddamn shitty synth pop songs off?

    What REAL Van Halen fan would choose "I'll Wait" over "Atomic Punk"? Geezus, is that even a question??

    Holy shit. Never realized Dave gave Jump the DTNA make-over. The opening lines were all I could get through. Not a favorite of mine, but I do like the solo.
