REVIEW:

This release from Mayflower presents both Stones concerts in Fort Worth, these are very well known also for having been partly released on Ladies and Gentlemen the Rolling Stones. Here, however, we get all that is available from both sets with AI help for this multiband release. Among the pretty strict 1972 setlist there are remarkable exceptions here, like the inclusion of Sweet Virginia in both shows and of Dead Flowers in the first and Rocks Off and Don’t Lie To Me in the second show. As the back cover says ‘The copyright of this audio recording is owned by Peter Pan under exclusive license by WENDY Records’ and set the records straight, doesn’t it? It did indeed receive the same treatment as the other multiband releases examined recently, a remastering job that can be better felt listening for example on Disc One to Love In Vain, previously dominated by Jagger vocals, while now Taylor’s guitar and Stu’s piano are pretty much upfront. Another thing that stands out is the frantic piano playing on Midnight Rambler, Rip This Joint and Street Fighting Man, allegedly by Nicky Hopkins, most of the times otherwise buried in the mix; too bad the whole concert is not available, notably Sweet Black Angel was played in the first set. Disc Two has almost the complete 2nd show, missing just All Down The Line and Happy. Another noticeable thing is that on songs like You Can’t Always Get What You Want it is now possible to dig Bill Wyman’s bass more than in the past, since it is at the centre of the mix and not buried at the bottom as has always been in official recordings too. Unreported on the back cover track listings is the Band Introductions that features the famous “Happy Birthday to Jerry the barman” line. I also gave the feeling there are more in between songs dialogues here, I did not remember Jagger sating “it is getting warmer and warmer and warmer” before Rip This Joint, or “Alright, keep me on the move” before Street Fighting Man, but I may be wrong on this. Anyway, this set too is remarkable and a joy to the ears especially for those that love vintage Stones.


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