    2CD + DVD Deluxe Edition!

    'The Live Tapes - Vol 3 - Live At The Manly Vale Hotel' was recorded on Saturday June 7, 1980 the same week that Cold Chisel's groundbreaking third album 'East' was released.

    'East' would go on to dominate the charts for the rest of 1980 and set a new high for Australian music (the album is now well past 10 x Platinum). With amazing foresight, the band recorded the cramped, sweaty pub show on 2-inch 16-track tape and the original audio tapes have been found, baked and carefully prepared so that Kevin Shirley could mix them in June this year. They also filmed the show, but only the second film reel (featuring the second half of the show) could be found – despite months of archaeological digging, the first reel seems to have been lost forever.

    'The Live Tapes - Vol 3 - Live At The Manly Vale Hotel' is the third in an ongoing series of special live recordings unearthed from Cold Chisel's own archives.

    This limited edition format presents the recording over 2 discs, plus a ten track DVD recorded on the night – all housed in a foldout 6 panel wallet.

    It reveals a fierce, lean Cold Chisel; whip-smart and confident from 5 years of relentless touring they were still hungry and risk-taking, previewing ten of East's twelve songs in the twenty-one song set. In addition to songs like "Cheap Wine," "Choirgirl," "My Baby," "Rising Sun" and "Star Hotel" that would all go on to become massive radio songs and a huge part of Cold Chisel's canon, the set also featured "Khe Sanh," "Breakfast at Sweethearts," "Conversations" and a speed-fuelled "One Long Day" from the band's first two albums, songs that were already well on their way to becoming Australian classics.

    The set also features two great covers, an adrenaline-charged rendition of the '60s nugget "Shakin All Over" - a brilliant one-hit-wonder for Johnny Kidd & The Pirates in 1960 which was made even more famous in Australia when Normie Rowe took it to # 1 in September 1965.

    Although Cold Chisel occasionally covered this gem in '79 and '80, a recording of the song has never surfaced till now. Additionally, the band deliver an emotional take on the Bob Dylan classic "Knockin' on Heaven's Door," which they offer as a tribute to two close friends and roadies who had recently died in a truck accident.

    The biggest and best band in the country, playing a a ferocious 21-song set in a local pub. Rock & roll doesn't get any more primal or any better than 'The Live Tapes - Vol 3 - Live At The Manly Vale Hotel!'

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chisel at the top of their game I took a leap of faith when I forked out some hard earned on this one. Would the audio be OK or would it be a cheap..(sorry!)..bootleg? I needn't have worried..the audio quality is great and the performance from 7th June a word..Wow! This release captures one complete night of prime, raw and hungry Cold Chisel road testing songs from their new album East. And if by any chance you have a copy of Swingshift, the double live album released in 1981 and are wondering do I need this too, the answer is a resounding YES!...Dare I say it, this album is even better!...Oh and there is a 'hidden' track at the end of the DVD, a famous piece of Australian Rock'n'roll history...that's all I'm saying!
