Scaniazz in Dresden

This is a non-edited live recording from “Die Tonne” in Dresden where Scaniazz played on May 17, 1985. Dresden belonged to East Germany. The sound engineer secretly recorded the performance and a cassette copy was smuggled through the “iron curtain” the following year. Under those circumstances some flaws in the sound are easily forgiven. The band was in an exceptionally spirited mood and the audience ecstatic.
