REVIEW:

Here we have a new source, a recently discovered recording from Boston 69 1st show from Diane DiVittorio Strauss, who put it on YouTube and made available this new master recording from the Stones 69 American Tour. Before just another fair recording was available on tape as Boston 1969 and Live At The Boston Garden and then on cdr with the same title and as The One That Closed The Bedroom Door, all lacking Prodigal Son and in poor quality; here only You Gotta Move is missing, although we can say it was played since 6 seconds of the end of that song are here recorded. However, the tape wat edited a bit: one second of silence inserted before the start of track one and at the end of track fourteen; then the two parts of Prodigal Son have been combined into a single track and a couple of notable blanks have been removed. No label is provided for this, so I credited the original uploader, the guy who posted the edited version and who made the artwork.

This was recorded with Craig 212 portable reel-to-reel recorder, Craig mic, BASF and Sunset tapes. This tape is more than 50 years old when was transferred earlier in 2020. The famous Madison Square Garden concerts, resulting in the album Get Your Ya Ya's Out, happened the days before this concert. There are some dropouts n the recording up to Stray Cat Blues and on Honky Tonk Women, due to the analogue tape losing magnetic particles, had it been “liberated” some years before it would have been in stunning quality, anyway the sound output is certainly better than what was previously available. We cannot blame the taper though, as this happened with more experienced people roo; there was suipposed to exist the full film of one of the Boston concerts by the Maysles Brothers, buti t seems the film itself got badly damaged by humidity, or this is what has leaked when Albert Maysles was still alive.

At the original tape beginning were also present some minutes of Terry Reid opening act, whose 69 recordings are quite rare; BB King was also due to play but a flat tire bloked him on his way to the venue from the airport and the Stones went on stage without waiting for him ( no cell phones then!).

Unfortunately, this is a lossy recording due to the media it has been released on, may we assume that the delay in releasing DAC no.195/196 has something to do with getting the original master recording of this (and possibly the other 72 recording from the same taper)?


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