QUALITY: Ok, so the quality of this recording sucks. Die-hards only for sure on this one.
Most of the shows from the '88 Monsters of Rock tour are pretty bad in quality, but this
one has to be one of the worst. The LA Coliseum is huge, and the taper was definitely not
close to the stage. In addition, it sounds like the recorder was underneath something, as it's
muffled a bit. You can still tell what songs are being played, but it's a rough recording to
listen to. Seriously, this a rough recording. Metallica is still considered the unknown
on this tour. During Fade to Black some guy's girlfriend goes around looking for gum. Moments
like this always add a certain charm to bootlegs...

SOURCE: Unknown audience analog
TIME: 73 minutes

VIDEO QUALITY: The second show shot by Kirk's brother-in-law. this quality is not
as good as the 7/16 show.  The footage looks wavey.  Either this really isn't
2nd gen, or there were some really crappy VCRs used to do the copy.

SOURCE: Unknown camera
TRANSER: 2nd gen > DVD

CORRECT SHOW: Yes, James sings "scanning the scene down in L.A. tonight"

FLAWS: none

BAND PERFORMANCE: Crazy show for sure.  The video really helps fill in some
gaps, as you can hear the crowd react to stuff on the audio, but can't really
tell what's going on.   During the opening the crowd rushes on to the floor, you
see a little bit of that on the video.  Apparently during whiplash, the sound was
turned off to get control of the crowd.  Which then causes the crowd to send
all of the chairs and barricade fencing to the front.  They get the show going
again, and Metallica continues to crush.  It's no wonder Dokken was boo'd during
their set which followed Metallica.

Also on the bill: Van Halen, Scorpions, Dokken and Kingdom Come
