REVIEW:

After some rough fans uploads of the material that first appeared on Abkco YouTube channel that were displayed on Stones message boards, this is the first attempt at reworking these tracks in order not just to eliminate annoying watermarks but to improve the output. Let s just see what liner notes say:

It already became a good tradition for fans to check You Tube at the end of the year for Abkco s annual copyright preservation uploads. This time the files have only been available for less than a day ... luckily some fans were attentive and saved these files in time and shared them with us. A big thank you to Honestman in particular but also to Axl79 for explaining how to get rid of the awful beep noise present on many of the uploads, and to Blakeeik who reworked these files.
In this version were used the files posted by Blakeeik, trying to brighten the sound a bit and improve the start and end of the songs. Have also been kept the bonus 6 songs which already circulated)  like  the Hot Rocks early Shelley Mixes but not the Gimme Shelter 1978 tour rehearsal that has nothing to do with 1969 copyright preservation and allegedly was uploaded by Abkco by mistake.
Unfortunately the version selected is not the best one (which is probably Axl79) and there are still annoying sounds here, especially on the spoken parts of You Can t Always Get What You Want, that affect listening pleasure. There is also a lot of confusion about the origin of these songs, there are basically 2 versions that are based on guess work for the most part, sources in parenthesis represent the alternate version to the prevailing one; It is doubtful Abkco itself will know where these tracks come from, since they released a 1978 tour rehearsal version of Gimme Shelter among this batch; furthermore it is not clear what good would do releasing a 1968 song for copyright preservation since that has expired already, but they will not most likely have to present proofs in a tribunal, unless the Stones themselves would resort to the courts to retain copyrights of such songs., that could only happen of the band would decide to commercially use these songs, something is so far unlikely. The debate even is on some instrument used, for instance on Wild Horses strings version most have accepted Abkco version that a glass harmonica was used, but some called that a glass armonium; personnel is quite another puzzling matter, the presence of Nicky Hopkins on Ruby Tuesday at first made some fans opt for a 1967 recording, later realizing the song does not have 1967 feel both in Jagger singing and Watts drumming; it is likely Watts himself who played the washboard on Love In Vain Robert Johnson style first attempt, while another puzzle to solve was the slide guitar player on Let It Bleed who by large consensus was determined to have been Ry Cooder, all this in order to better frame the recording s real date. Anyway there will for sure be more releases like this coming, already in Japan there is a single no label disc out called 69RSTRAX, while in the States a massive 10 disc collection called The Abkco fiasco featuring everything uploaded by the label is about to be released.


The best toys are the ones that are both educational and multi-purposeful.
