REVIEW:

Recently the Mayflower label announced a wholesale through June 30 with 20% off of its entire catalog, giving as reason behind this exceptional event that the shop will be closed for 2 months next November and December and after that, the label is going to be semi-retired, which means (probably) no more new titles... Meanwhile though some titles came out and we will review them all. Let’s start with a fact from the past: with the release of Exile on Main Street the Stones not only issued what would turn ouit to be a seminal work in artistic terms, but created also a new way of mixing rock albums, what was later called the Jagger mix. It basically consisted in a mix that put vocals at the same level of musical instruments, thus creating an effect that was quite sleazy, “with Jagger vocals very low in a muddy soup of noise” commented the Telegraph. This was appreciated by the band itself and by the fans, as it is a matter of personal taste, however when we come to live soundboard recording from 1972-73 we got the real opposite: Jagger’s vocals dominated and all the instruments were relegated to the background; collectors however were anyway happy to get titles like Happy Birthday Edward (Previously known as Nicky, Pert 73), Philadelphia Special or Fort Worth Express, rare examples of good sounding live unauthorised stuff. Come 2022 and Artificial Intelligence steps in, offering these recordings r emastered with the latest AI technology which produced the sound that was buried in the depths of the tape, bringing instruments upfront. Until now the vocals were extremely large and the instruments were buried and we got only unbalanced sounds, but this work introduces the latest AI technology and reproduces all the sounds that were buried even though they were recorded in the original source, and the balance is balanced. The sound quality and sound image are unprecedented. In the words of a fan:
"These Mayflower remasters should put the final word on these titles!  Stupendous! I compared with the old Swingin Pig version and this is SUBSTANTIALLY - SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER!"

In fact it must be said that the listening experience is excellent and there is no hiss due to raising the music which was previously in the background. Packaging is classic presenting the famous front cover with a different one on the back featuring track listings and 4 colour photos from the event. Can we call this the definitive version of the Stones Perth 73 concert? Most likely, unless the full performance pops up.
