Hi,

I'm searching the internet without luck for "The Animal" Performance of Steve Vai at Expo 92, in Seville (Spain - España).

I could record it in VHS at that time, but 25 years later I don't have the tape (neither a VHS player ;))

Most videos of that time doesn't include that song, and is a shame since is, IMHO, the best performance of that song I've ever seen.

If someone could get, it's worth it

Thanks in advance!

Yeah, I've never seen that one anywhere..don't think it was recorded or released, but people claim that it was shown on tv at the time.

That is the heavily edited version. I think the other posters in this thread are searching for the one with at least two extra songs (The Animal and a song from Satch that was also edited out, can't remember which one).

Edit: I think I know what the problem is. The VHS concert that was released was edited to 90 minutes, because of the limitations of VHS. So the songs like The Animal, Get The Funk Out and I believe it was The Crush Of Love didn't make the final cut.


Some guy uploaded a video of the Spanish live broadcast on Youtube. You should ask him if he has the missing songs.

Edit 2: This guy has the full concert. Here is by me previously unseen solo by Nuno after More Than Words.
