REVIEW:

This release presents the well known official footage recorded with Keith Richards in the highest possible quality, thanks to a transfer from a Japanese Laser Disc. Quality is excellent both video and audio stand out id compared with all previous versions of this classic concert.
The concert video was recorded in London, December 23, 1974 and is a multi-camera pro shot Farewell Concert which happened at Kilburn. This show has been known since long time as the video that symbolized the late Faces since it was broadcasted by LWT TV on 28 November 1975, and it has become a classic that was reproduced on many unofficial DVDs (contrary to the subtitle that was not the final performance from the Faces though). What is different here? Well, unlike the broadcast, this is the official version released in 1995 in Japan on laser disc. Some collector may remember the illustrations and jackets drawn by a Japanese artist and the bright red belt with the words: A long-awaited historical video, this release is new !! This work was in fact digitized from the Japanese Laser disc having serial number COLY-3166. The laser disc version is completely different from the broadcasted version, many people have seen Kilburn 1974, but the biggest difference lies in its length. Kilburn 1974 was edited a lot, stuffing five songs in a 20-minutes broadcast, but this work lasts about 65 minutes. Not only You Wear It Well was fully recorded, but the total number of songs that was not part of the broadcasted version has also been increased to 8 songs, there is no comparison at all. Let s get a look at where these songs come from. Never A Dull Moment (4 songs) with-Keith Richards playing on: I d Rather Go Blind (Etta James) and Twistin The Night Away (Sam Cook), Angel (Jimi Hendrix) / You Wear It Well. Smiler (2 songs) with Keith co-starring on Sweet Little Rock n Roller (Chuck Berry) and Bring It On Home To Me / You Send Me (Sam Cook);  I Ve Got My Own Album To Do (2 songs): Take A Look At The Guy and  I Can Feel The Fire and then other (4 songs): Maggie May from Every Picture Tells A Story / You Can Make Me Dance, Sing Or Anything and a cover: It s All Over Now (Bobby Womack) plus We ll Meet Again (Vera Lynn) as final anthem. In Kilbun 1974 Keith, who was only shown on Sweet Little Rock n Roller, performed on two more songs: I d Rather Go Blind (playing great lead guitar licks on this Etta James classic)and Twistin The Night Away which has an unusual Elmore James start. In addition it is possible to enjoy precious numbers such as It s All Over Now and You Can Make Me Dance, Sing Or Anything that are hardly available even in other late Faces soundboard recordings like The Definitive San Bernardino 1975 (Wardour-374) recently released.
Not only songs contents, but also screen quality is completely different from Kilburn 1974. The image quality is like a vintage film; to be honest, white and black dot noises are included, and the source is obviously analogue. It is a completely different viewing experience from the super vivid feeling of Kilburn 1974 since it had been digitally processed from the station master. But this Daimoto is an official work that came from the Japanese version of a mint laser disc. Of course to remove tape twists and dubbing marks is physically impossible and the product quality reflects the times but however it is reproduced without deterioration. The sound is also the original mono one and although it seems highly unlikely to get an official DVD or Blu Ray release with this quality, this represents the best possible option for classic rock fans. The line up consisted of Rod Stewart on Vocals, Ron Wood on Guitar and Vocals, Ian McLagan on Keyboards, Tetsu Yamauchi on Bass, Kenney Jones on Drums with special guest Keith Richards on guitar on Sweet Little Rock n Roller, I d Rather Go Blind and Twistin The Night Away.   Historically this is a document where it can be seen the first guitar weaving sound between Keith Richards and Ron Wood. Moreover this how happened on December 23, 1974 when began the initial stage of Stones production of  the Black & Blue album. More precisely, it was between the Munich sessions in December 1974 and the Rotterdam sessions in January-February 1975 a time defined later the Great Guitarist Hunt period after Mick Taylor quit and Ron Wood was taken into consideration as replacement, possibly also thanks to his skills showcased in this concert that can now better experienced in this professional silver disc. Footage is displayed at 16:9 ratio and front and back covers reproduces the original laser disc covers, a laser disc that is hard to find and when located changes hands for no less than 100 USD.
