Next clue...

This super-famous band put this live album out in the late 80s. It was a decent but not great collection of favorites. Not terrible, but not great. I like the artwork though, including this close-up from the back cover.

The right part of this image is a single sheet added between the gatefold...

... which is why I included this ripped up image. I can't think of another album that did that.

Next clue...

This mid-80s album sounds like the 80s with drum machines etc... even though they have a drummer. This is the band's final studio album. There have been live albums since then and all members are still alive, so they could do another one some day. The close-up is from the sleeve.

Look how expensive those VHS and Beta tapes were. I used to have those and I just got the Royal Oak show again on DVD as a bonus disc on a Utopia - Oblivion reissue package - probably $15 all told.

Yeah, those were expensive. And remember how expensive the Dub Room VHS was in '85?

Holy cow! Please tell me I didn't pay that for the copy that's sitting at the bottom of my closet.
