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