Description: This is my master tape from the Rock N’Roll Caravan Tour, which hit Manchester, NH in the Summer of 1987. Unfortunately it is not complete, sad to say it was at some point but “part 2” has been lost. Still eighty-five minutes of the show have been preserved and perhaps this is the only version out there. This was a strange tour, with the Del Fuegos and Georgia Satellites opening. Riverfront Park was nothing more than a parking lot in front of some old mill buildings in downtown Manchester. The sound was reputedly awful and many bands who were part of this “Summer in the Park” concert series would complain about the sound. The tape sounds pretty good, not a lot of bass but overall very listenable and will be enjoyable for any Petty fan. I’m one of those people who liked the Let Me Up I’ve Had Enough album.
