Geetarz Comments: 

(*) Laura Creamer replaced Marcy Levy for the remainder of the 1985 tour.

This is an interesting bootleg, there is no no label or number on discs. The original silvers are poorly silk-screened with only the title "Forever Man is Forever!" Most pressed CDs from that era (late 1980s, early 1990s) have at least a manufacturer ID number on the inner ring (even if it has been obliterated), these have none.

I bought this set at a record fair in the early 1990s, and got a real "deal" on the 2CD set at only $40 because there was no artwork. Some years later, a website contributor was kind enough to contribute the cover scans, so thanks in that regard go to him.

Included are scans from today at 300DPI of the original silver discs - they aren't much to look at, but this way you know you're getting the "real deal".

The 1985 tour was a personal favorite, and it's great to have a soundboard from the short Japan tour that year, even if it's not a fantastic one. A great performance of "Double Trouble" is worth the price of admission alone (which is FREE for you, by the way!)
