FREE LIVE Isle Of Wight & Stockholm 1970


LIVE  
Isle Of Wight & Stockholm
1970

Two live sets from Free's prime are featured on this bootleg, 
one disc taken from their show at the Isle of Wight Festival on August 29, 1970, the other from a concert in Stockholm on December 12, 1970. The sound quality is good enough to make one wonder whether these were recorded with an eye for official release, and the performances are solid, drawing from an assortment of songs on their first four albums.

Van Halen - Free In Dallas 1991

So this is Van Halen by the end of 1991 at the West End Market Place in Dallas.
This was a free concert given by the band as promised by Sammy Hagar at the Monsters Of Rock show in 1988 at the Dallas Cotton Bowl where he had a laryngitis and felt bad about the performance.
They set up the concert using as name 'Band', probably for crowd control reasons, then showed up to play live at 4 pm in downtown Dallas on December 4, 1991.
In the setlist is a nice version of A Apolitical Blues, being true that Van Halen have been doing versions, some very good, along their career.
