Live in Montreux

Excellent sound quality bootleg, taken from the soundboard, of the Montreux 1985 show. Although the CD is incomplete (51 minutes) it is notable for its inclusion of “Don’t Stop by the Creek, Son”, which was performed with Johnny Copeland and is the only remaining unreleased song left, from the 2 Montreux shows.

It also includes both songs that have been dropped from the legal CD release (“Cold Shot”, “Look at Little Sister”), and the full, unedited version of “Ain’t Gone’N’ Give up on Love”. 

Everything that was dropped from the commercial release, is therefore on this.

Peace in the Valley

The penultimate concert ever, the first of 2 dates at the Alpine Valley at East Troy, WI.

SRV+DT shared the bill with Robert Cray and Eric Clapton on both nights.

The Last Show - Alpine Valley

The remastered version of the video feed of this show is the best of the bootleg versions.

It is not the complete show, as it is missing the “all-star” encore of “Sweet Home Chicago”, (an audience recording can be found on other bootlegs)
