Title London 1985
Source Wembley Arena, London, UK, 10th July 1985
Format 1CD
Label Live Storm
Cat. no. LSCD 51028
Comments Made in Italy, released in 1994. Same master as 1CD 'London 1985' (Inter Sonus IS-CD-017). This is the 1994 re-issue of the other London 1985 CD from the Golden Stars label (release 1990). Only the back cover and spine indicates it is the Live Storm issue. The CD itself is 100% identical to the one from the Golden Stars label; no reference to the Live Storm label there! I checked this with another big collector and he also has a London 1985 Live Storm issue with Golden Stars CD. It seems that for this Live Storm release, no new CD-print was created. If you read this and have other information, please let me know.
