Brussels 1985 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Forest National, Brussels, Belgium; June 9, 1985. Fair to good audience recording - a bit distant, and a bit of echo.

The early ’80s were particularly successful years for Foreigner, with 4 (1981) featuring singles such as Urgent, Waiting for a Girl Like You, Juke Box Hero and Break It Up; and Agent Provocateur (1984) with hits such as I Want To Know What Love Is and This Was Yesterday.

For those who miss those heady days. A rousing show… if only there is a soundboard or a radio broadcast…

  2. Shame this was not a better sounding show. Foreigner was at its peak in early 1984-85. That Was Yesterday was an underrated song from Agent Provocateur which rarely gets played today. Still, glad to have this and even through the murk Lou Gramm still acquits himself as a great rock vocalist.

  4. Never got into these guys during their heyday. Met Ian McDonald through a friend and invited him to party at my old NYC loft. He spent the night talking about what a mistake it was for him to sign up for the original band. Then, last year, my daughter’s vocal ensemble sang backup for “I Want To Know What Love Is” here in Scottsdale, AZ. While only Mick Jones is left, and he plays only half the show, they really put on a great show. While my daughter’s performance was the highlight (duh) I found myself mumbling the lyrics to the radio hits just like everyone else in the sold out arena. So, thanks to Foreigner for donating to the Saguaro Advanced Vocal Ensemble and thanks for a fun night out in the desert.

  6. Saw ‘em in Memphis years ago when they were on the way up, a tri-fecta with Frank Marino & Mahogany Rush as the opener, Foreigner, and then “Tear-’Em-Up” Ted Nugent as the headliner. What a show. I came away that night thinking more about Foreigner and Frank Marino. My ears were practically shot after Ted; permanent hearing loss. I think Ratt and Teddy both blew Deep Purple away in terms of sheer noise. Foreigner though only had the one LP out at the time, and I still think every song it is a gem. How many bands come out of the gate with an album like that? Even a crappy audience taping of Foreigner is worth having, so many thanks for this.

  8. oops marino*
    oh and for ppl looking for sbd or fm foreigner that isnt from 85 there were a bunch of other years that had live performances with high end shows on the radio. back in the late 70s there was a show called innerview with jim ladd that had live performances between the talking. i recall the foreigner show which i believe was from 78 and it was a rather extraordinary performance not like any show i ever saw them do. i have no idea which performance it came from.
