REVIEW:

This release by Mayflower has a title that refers to the chemical element Dysprosium whose atomic number is indeed 66 hence the title of this release that presents 3 Stones concerts from 1966, all in soundboard quality, the first two complete broadcasts, the third just featuring 4 songs. Dysprosium is a rare element that has few applications, apart being used   in nuclear reactors, is also used in data storage applications due to its magnetic susceptibility and as a component o Terfenol-D, a magnetostrictive material. Like many powders, dysprosium powder may present an explosion hazard when mixed with air and when an ignition source is present. So much for the label s decision to name this release this way, in fact the performances recorded here show the Stones in a quite exciting mood, playing their latest hits that had boosted them on the Top 5 hits all over the world.

Unfortunately the Stones 1966 live concerts that are available are few and not in great quality in fact no audience recording seem to exist from the 66 US Tour, so we have to rely on the live AM mono radio broadcast for the last date in Honolulu which has appeared on many underground releases: So Much Younger Than Today (TSP 012), Honolulu Hawaii July 28, 1966 (Bulldog Rec. BGLP 09), So Much Younger Than Today (TSP 012) red vinyl and no label release that came out in 2018, 3 songs on Alive and Rolling From The Crater Of The Sun (KKP2) while the song Satisfaction can be found on Commando Raid (A 7372). On compact: From Paris to Honolulu (Silver Rarities SIRA 212), Paris Match (Gold Standard SCO 15),Sold Out (Hot Island HI 916601), Bill Wyman s Black Box (VGP 329), In Action (IST 18), So Much Younger Than Today (Master of Sound (TSP 012), Hawaii 1966 (Coda SBTCD028), 40th Anniversary Vintage Stones 2cd (no label), Our Last Concert Ever (Sister Morphine MORPH 57), 66 Route   (GFR 262), Another Time, Another Place (Coda   STBCD005) 6 cd, Satisfaction in Concert (Coda CPLCD252) 4 cd, Hawaii 66 (Coda STBCD028), Everlasting Tour (Eternal Grooves-0007) then 4 tracks on Live in USA 1964-66 (Black Panther BPCD027) and 2 songs on The First Decade (Big Music Box BIGBX 03). This release presents in fact an enhanced version with Charlie Watts drums audible on most tracks and a wide sonic spectrum, somehow unexpected from an AM recording.   This concert became famous for Charlie Watts mistaken introduction of The Last Time (instead of Lady Jane) and especially for Jagger announcing live before Satisfaction this has been their last concert ever (but for the next   53 years).

Contrary to Honolulu the following 2 broadcasts were marred by the radio announcer talking on songs ends. The Melbourne broadcast was released first on compact as Do You Like The RS (VGP 301), Bill Wyman s Black Box (VGP 329), 66 Route (GFR 262), Enfant Terrible Live 65-66 (Eternal Grooves EGSH 0004) and later on vinyl on Get Back To The One You Love (E.Valley 010607) and Let The Airways Flow 2 Melbourne, Paris and London (R&B 030). This version is not bad with a good balance between high and bass frequencies although audience noise is remarkably high, contributing to the perception of an electric performance. Rare live versions of Mercy Mercy, She Said Yeah and That s How Strong My Love Is are highlights, radio ads broadcasted live at time cover the beginning of a song (Play With Fire), but unfortunately over Satisfaction too. The Paris tracks are rebroadcasts from 1995 (too bad the whole concert was not rebroadcasted) on the occasion of the band s return to L’Olympia, these are in fact the best sounding song here (the difference with the previous available source can be heard at the end of Satisfaction which is supplemented to complete the song). They stem from the second show (the identifier is the Hang On Sloopy Theme briefly sung by Jagger at the beginning of Get Off Of My Cloud) which came out on vinyl on Lord Have Mercy (CBM 3948), A L’Olympia (Magic Dwarf Rec.3) and Let The Airways Flow 1-Live at Olympia 1965-66 (R&B29). On compact can be found on Fuckin and Suckin (Hot Lips RS 0013) and (DAC 190) , Play With Fire (VGP 286), Ready Steady Stones (VGP 248) Gods in Olympia (TMOQ 002-4),   Our Last Cocert Ever (Sister Morphine 57), Du Fond Du Coeur (FF01), Still I m Gonna Miss You (VGP 073), 66 Route (GFR 262), Olympia Live in the Sixties (Goldplate 1302), Everlasting Tour 1966-67 (Eternal Grooves -0007) let alone some fans work like Musicorama Mixdown.

All in all a nice release which however could have been more remarkable had it incorporated the newly found Sydney 66 recording (reviewed here a while ago)
