Y&T: London 1983

I received an email a couple of days ago with this nice surprise and immediately reminded me of Open Fire, their great live album from 1985 that i still have on vinyl.
This one is a fantastic Y&T concert from the Mean Streak tour of 83 and recorded from the Dutch radio. This gig took place on the Dominion Theater in London.
All thanks go to Dutchboy, he did the recording and the upload and was kind enough to share it with us :)
The sound is simply superb!

This comes in one track only, with these songs:
Take you to the limit
Midnight in Tokyo
Black tiger
Hungry for rock
I believe in you
Down and dirty
Mean streak
Straight thru the heart
Rescue me
Dirty girl
Hurricane (fade out)
