    I don't think I'll bother given your review but what a pity. Understandable though, no one I knew had a video camera in 1984 they were still a bit exotic 3 years later,

    A typically mid 80s content light set list. You only have an hour but you keep the fucking bass solo and 1984? I'd never checked this before what a shitty setlist no wonder the reviews and people I've asked who were there were a little meh about it. They were following Ozzy and warming up for ACDC and there are only 6 or 7 songs in that setlist you would want to hear.

    This is an even more extreme version of the time I saw Ratt do a 35 minute support of Ozzy and have 2 guitar solo spots.

    Robin Crosby thought that in a 35 minute set before Jake E Lee we needed to hear him do a solo spot rather than have another song...

    File it under some stuff in the 80s was definitely dumber than now...

    Generally, audience-shot shows from this period were pretty lousy...but there were exceptions.

    MONTREAL '84 is extremely-watchable. There is no other audience-shot concert in history that I've sat and watched as many times as that fucker. It's amazing!

    The guy who shot that, also shot Priest and some other shows in Montreal in 1984-1986 time period. Not perfect focus, as opposite end of the arena, but the sound is always impeccable
