Van Halen live on 8/25/1981 in Greensboro, NC. There are quite a few audio bootlegs from 1981 which is a good thing.  Bad thing is most are pretty iffy quality, but this one has to be one of the best in quality from the Fair Warning tour. Plus you get the extended show intro/jam of “On Fire” and Dave’s Sounds of Summertime rap before “Ice Cream Man.”

    Um, wow. This is incredible!! Thanks for sharing; I’ve been wanting to hear a good recording of a 1981 show for quite some time, and this delivers.
