Alice In Chains - June 8, 1991, Cedar Rapids, IA

While I'm waiting for footage of Slayer, Megadeth, and Testament from Saturday night's concert in St. Paul to finish uploading before I post my full review of the show, I thought I would share an audio recording of the full Clash Of The Titans concert from 1991 featuring Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax, and Alice In Chains. The first leg of the Slayer/Megadeth American Carnage tour is winding up, and Anthrax will take Testament's place on the second leg. Unfortunately the second leg of the tour won't be coming through the Twin Cities.
First up from the Clash Of The Titans tour is Alice In Chains. At the time of this show Alice In Chains was still a band on the rise as they supported Facelift. The curious thing about this show is that they opened with "Would?", an unreleased song at the time. Alice In Chains played at Rockfest in Cadott, Wisconsin last month, and they are about to embark on another leg to support Black Gives Way To Blue with Deftones and Mastodon. Black Gives Way To Blue is an amazing record that I reviewed here, and my review of their March 2010 concert in St. Paul is here. This particular recording has never been traded or circulated until now!
Alice In Chains - 1991-06-08, Cedar Rapids, IA, Five Seasons Center, Clash Of The Titans
27 minutes, audience recording, mp3@128 kbps
1. Would?
2. Real Thing
3. Put You Down
4. We Die Young
5. Bleed The Freak
6. It Ain't Like That
7. Man In The Box
This was recorded from the center-front seats with a Sony WM-D6 and external stereo shotgun microphones, and each song was individually mastered. The sound is good for an audience recording and is very listenable, probably a generous B grade. This is definitely worth downloading if you're a fan. Sorry, a higher bit rate version is not available. The download link is in the text file:

As always, I encourage sharing, but please share the link to this post rather than the text file or the download links. Thanks and enjoy!
