Description
・Riot could not have kicked off the 1980s in better fashion than with their prime slot at the inaugural Monsters Of Rock festival Castle Donington in August 1980 performing alongside the cream of hard rock and heavy metal from that era. This was followed by a highly successful tour supporting Sammy Hagar both of which are documented on HNE’s “The Official Bootleg Box Set Vol 1: 1976 - 1980”.
・ Officially licensed from the archives of the Mark Reale estate c/o Anthony Reale “The Official Bootleg Box Set Volume 2” captures the band at their creative and commercial peak kicking off with shows from their 1981 UK tour. Riot had already developed a solid live reputation and cult fan-base in the UK when they played the Manchester Apollo on 13th October 1981 and the Ipswich Gaumont the following day on a bill featuring The Rods and headlined by Saxon. Both sets include live favourites ‘Outlaw’ ‘Road Racin’’ ‘Rock City’ & ‘Warrior’.
・ Cleveland Ohio’s Agora Ballroom was a regular stop-off for rock and metal bands in the 70s and 80s and their 8th November 1981 show captured the band performing ‘Fire Down Under’ ‘Overdrive’ ‘Road Racin’’ & ‘Rock City’.
・ By the time Riot played Long Island on 1st July 1982 Guy Speranza had been replaced by Rhett Forrester on vocals joining Mark Reale & Rick Ventura on guitar Kip Leming on bass and drummer Sandy Slavin. Having moved from Capitol Records to Elektra Riot were keen to promote the new “Restless Breed” record performing the title track a cover of Eric Burdon & the Animals’ ‘When I Was Young’ ‘Loanshark’ ‘Showdown’ ‘Dream Away’ ‘Over To You’ & ‘Loved By You’.
・ Disc 5 was recorded at Paramount Theater Staten Island in 1983 with the band supporting the new indie release “Born In America”. Songs from that album include ‘Where Soldiers Rule’ ‘Born In America’ Vigilante Killer’ & ‘Wings Of Fire’ included among the Riot classics ‘Altar Of The King’ and ‘Restless Breed’.
