Stilleto Rain - Red Rocks Morrison, CO. 6/19/85 (1 CDR)
Still more great Stevie
Boot CD>CDR   Primadonna, PD109
Sound: A
Time: 73:39
Flaws: none
Kahuna's Rating:****

Info below from SRV Gig Database:
[Primadonna, PD109] (73:46, 9 tracks) this recording sounds like an offhand board mix, good quality the CD incorrectly lists the show as 17jun85
The 6/19/85 Red Rocks show is definately a good one to start with.
Highlight of the show is "Little Wing." This show was recorded when Stevie was in his heaviest drug-using days. In "Little Wing" it sounds like he is in so much pain and is calling out for help through his guitar. Very emotional.That track makes the CD worth buying alone. Voodoo is strong also.
     1> Ain't Giving Up On Love     7:40   "Ain't Gone 'n' Give Up On Love"
     2> Pride And Joy               5:09
     3> Voodoo Child               12:40   "Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)"
     4> Tin Pan Alley              12:01
     5> Little Sister               4:09   "Look at Little Sister"
     6> Flooding Down In Texas      9:21   "Texas Flood"
     7> Come On                     6:30   "Come On (Part III)"
     8> Little Wing                 7:44
     9> 3 Stones From the Sun       8:29   "Third Stone From the Sun"

The Forgotten Show - The Ocean Center, Daytona Beach, FL 3/25/87 (1 CDR)
Another fantastic hot jammin show
Snb Boot CD>CDR   Flashback World Productions, 01.93.0196
Sound: A+
Time: 73:56
Flaws: Skips between songs, Has recently been reissued (or made to look like a reissue) by Flashback in CD-R format but these are inferior to the originals due to annoying sound gaps at the start of each track, plus the absence of the final track ("Rude Mood"). Otherwise both have excellent sound. My copy has Rude Mood but also has skips
