by this time they were Michael Jackson's closest competitor
on the pop charts, with one big hit after another...

this is from the "H2O- Hot in America" 1983 tour, a national
broadcast across the U.S.A. Even though by this time they had
enough hits to play a 3 hour concert and still not play all
of them, they still found time for the usual (for them) share of
rhythm and blues/ soul covers which is a big part of their thing.
since folks liked the 3 Hall and Oates shows from Boston and
someone requested hearing this in a post of a 1988 Calif. show
and I recorded this show as it happened, may as well share it,
in 3 step torrent fashion (master > WAV > FLAC > torrent.)
so here it is. I only missed a little bit of between song talk
and the very tail end of "wait for me" in here, it sounds like I
got the second tape running in time for the beginning of maneater.
I wouldn't say this is the best Hall and Oates show I've ever heard,
very likely the biggest audience they'd ever had at this time
(including radio). I've never heard a bad or even just okay show of theirs.
this was a little slicker and poppier period than the previous H & O shows
I posted. alot of folks like the mid to late 80's stuff even more, so
for those of you and the several who like all things Hall and Oates
here's some H2O you can put in your ears that won't give you
"swimmer's ear". after a walk through the wiki discography I was able
to identify all but 4 titles for sure, and did not find any indication
of anything in here being officially released. "Family Man" was first
recorded by Mike Oldfield, but a much bigger hit for Hall & Oates.
even though H2O came out in '82, their new release in 1983 was a
greatest hits package so that was still their newest album material.
Do not sell this recording.
Trade freely and losslessly.
Deck the halls.
Eat the oats.
they're good for you.
