Maze Live In Los Angeles 1986

Live In Los Angeles is the second live album by Maze featuring Frankie Beverly to be released. It is also available in some regions as a DVD.

It was recorded at the Universal Amphitheatre on 1 January 1986 and follows on from the excellent Live In New Orleans.

It comes in two formats:

  • a single CD/mp3 download with 13 tracks as originally released in 1986
  • a double CD/mp3 download with 18 tracks in the 2003 remastered version

Both are readily available and therefore care needs to be taken to make sure you get the version you want. Like the earlier New Orleans album, it has been extended by the inclusion of new tracks recorded in the studio. This is odd considering the latest version is still criticised for not including the full concert.

Loverboy Live Loud & Loose 1982 to 1986

Live Loud & Loose is a live compilation album by Canadian AOR band Loverboy that collects together songs from concerts in 1982, 1983 and 1986.

The band were popular in Canada and the United States in the early 1980s but made little impact in the UK so I have no connection with them.

The album has been re-released in 2011 under a different title – Setlist The Very Best of Loverboy Live.

Bruce Springsteen Los Angeles April 23 1988

Los Angeles, April 23, 1988 is an archive released live recording of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band with the Horns Of Love.

It was recorded at the Los Angeles Sports Arena during the Tunnel Of Love tour and is available from liveBruceSpringsteen.net.

This follows on from previous archive recordings from 1975, 1978, 1980 and 1984 that have been released in the same way.

After the worldwide success of Born In the USA in 1984/85, Springsteen went back into his shell with the Tunnel Of Love album and whilst it sold well, it lacked the commerciality of his earlier album.

By this stage Nils Lofgren was a member of the E Street Band after Miami Steve Van Zandt had left. His future wife and mother of three children, Patti Scialfi was also a member.
