REVIEW:

This release from Tarantura present both Hamburg 1973 shows together, something that had not happened in the past, although the bizarre title seems to allude to just one concert; unfortunately the recordings, even if evidently coming from a master source are not that great.

The first concert of the Stones 1973 stop in Hamburg came out on tape as Give Me A Hamburger but the tape ran too fast, then as Hamburg 73 1st and Hamburg 73 Tapes, Ernst Merck Halle and finally on a professional cdr called Hamburg 1973 1st show in 2013 for the first time (Hamburg 1973), later on a cdr called Afternoon in Hamburg. The first show here is not a great recording unfortunately, due to the fact that the sound of bass and guitars are distorted, Jagger s vocals are fine though and also Taylor lead guitar is OK on some numbers (Dancing With Mr.D for instance). It must be said however that this version is slightly better than the one shown on Hamburg 73 1st show, since this source does not sound that distant.

The second show was more widely available, at first on vinyl with 3 tracks on The Stars in the Sky Never Lie (Caution 197/810-11), 2 songs appeared on Jean Clarke Memorial Sonic Barbecue (TAKRL 1919), 2 songs on Sonic Barbecue (B.Island 25717), 3 songs on A German Affair (TMOQ-92), 2 on Tour Over Germany 1973 (TSP 300-36), 1 song is on Radio Caroline (27444 A/B).

On compact   it came out on cdr on Satisfaction, Hamburg 73 Tapes, which offered both shows and then on Hamburg 73 Oct. 2, 2nd show. On silver discs then The Stars in the Sky Never Lie (VGP-ASTS 19781) in 2005 presented the full concert although three songs were cut and one not complete.2 songs can be found on The Jean Clarke Memorial Sonic Barbecue (VGP 246) and on   The Stars in the Sky Never Lie (Midnight Beat 141), 1 song on Reflection of a Stone Alone (VGP 043) and 2 on The Stars in the Sky They Never Lie (DAC 100); 2 songs are found on Best of Europe 73   (Hot Lips 003 3505). In 2003 came out The German Affair (PGN 046) that had a complete recording   with the same source as Stars in the Sky (VGP- Asts 19781) but offering a lower generation and in 2010 3 tracks were featured on 1973 Tour (WLR 2135) 13 cd and 1 DVD box.

The recording here starts quite bad with Brown Sugar quite saturated and with the usual low fidelity provided by the venue itself, it seems, the sound output slightly improves and is better than the 1st concert recording, it must be noted that at tape change, from Midnight Rambler onward, the sound output gets much better, however this won t be regarded as the find of the year. Packaging is nice as usual for Tarantura, but on the back cover-hard to read- there is this statement below personnel playing: *Bobby Keys left the tour after the Frankfurt dates. In his memoir, he states that he left to clean up from drink and drugs to save his life. This does not sound true as Bobby Keys has been reported having played through the first Rotterdam show on October 13th at the very end of the tour.
