REVIEW:

One more collection of soundboard tracks covering this time the Stones 1978 US Tour which had many radio recordings instead of an official live album. In bootlegs field we got Nasty Music that  was created from the radio broadcasts from the European tour 1973, likewise Lacerated was created with tracks from the 1978 tour, this being a typical example of the benefits of radio broadcasts, so not only the outstanding sound quality from the original, but also the black-and-white design with the unmistakable jacket cover were a big attraction.
Actually, this album and Nasty Music were both released by the same person (= Ken Douglas), through the label called The Impossible Recordworks hat was used when Lacerated came out. This title and design were copied in the CD era, and it is well known that VGP released a stunning CD version of it. However, as for the radio sound source of the 1978 tour, it was in 1997 that the prestigious TSP with the pig mark (TSP was said to get recordings from TMOQ, but the latter was owned by Ken an American, TSP instead was operated by the German Dieter Schubert and there was no direct connection), and the historic masterpiece Handsome Girls when released became a big breakthrough. All bootlegs up to that time were based on radio broadcasts or transcription discs, and all broadcasts banned terms that Mick used during his performances in 1978 that were covered by a buzz. However, Handsome Girls was a surprise to collectors all over the world because it presented the sources before such processing took place. Furthermore, a longer version of the sources recorded for radio broadcasts came out on Concert Vault 10 years ago. Currently these are the two main pillars of the 1978 tour radio sources. Although this was a tour that is extremely blessed with stereo soundboard recordings, it is surprising that there has been no project that assembled both together. Because Handsome Girls was the core title, in the underground market   came out The Lost Handsome Girls a well-known soundboard disc that put together various other radio sources. This became a bestseller as two versions were released, both of which were sold out in no time. Of course there was no end to the demand for re-release. So, this time, a new compilation came out. The title is Complete Lacerated, this time also joining the main part of the radio broadcasts heard on Handsome Girls and also the tracks heard on   The Lost Handsome Girls, making this set a complete and definitive release. However, anyone can do such compilation by himself providing tracks are available, and there have been such titles released on cdr in the past. So this time, all parts and sources were remastered, among them, Tumbling Dice from Sam Houston Coliseum, which was still only available in analogue format on boot, Jumping Jack Flash from Kentucky, where the guitar sounds were almost removed was equalized again. Conversely, as a result of thorough adjustment of the sound quality to make all songs have a sense of unity, it turned out a finished product that can be listened naturally since several sources have been combined throughout.
The overall sound output is just warm and you will be amazed by the exceptional ease of listening, not to mention pitch adjustment; furthermore, as a matter of fact there is great stereo separation for the guitars, each having its own channel, this is something Keith Richards won’t like much but I am sure most fans do. There is one groundbreaking track on this release, it is Tumbling Dice from Detroit where Mick s vocals were turned off halfway on the soundboard track, but any collector knows that that part was heard normally in the audience recording. The source heard in the analogue LP Abandoned In Detroit was mixed with a radio source there, and the part where the voice of Mick was not heard was improved. However, the audience recording is not as close to the soundboard, being a normal audience recording, so this time   the track has been reborn! Now the same song was borrowed from Fort Worth and so a complete recording was made. Of course Fort Worth is not a radio source, but it uses the Handsome Girls mix, realizing a track that is nice to listen to. So the overall sound quality was the focus this time, something that has never been done before; therefore, not only that but also the ease of listening as a full live album is outstanding. This is the third instalment of soundboard compilations following the US 1969 and 1972 tours and we can say that here there is the greatest unity and quality. Here it can be said that this release provides definitely Satisfaction Guaranteed for both beginners and seasoned collectors.
