REVIEW:

This LP contains soundboard recordings of the Rolling Stones’ live performance in Oakland, California at the start of their groundbreaking November 1969 treck across North America, subsequently broadcasted on Radio KSAN at the behest of Bill Graham, these nine tracks demonstrate why on this tour the Stones were introduced as “t he greatest rock’n’roll band in the world.” Four of these songs – Prodigal Son, You Gotta Move, Gimme Shelter and Satisfaction – were not included on the  Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out! LP, recorded later on the tour in New York and Baltimore.

This is the concert from which the first live bootleg lp came out, the famous ‘Liver than you’ll ever be’ that pushed Decca to release Get Yer Ya Ya’s Out the following year. This concert has been released with such title many times on vinyl and cd (including luxury package by Japanese Tarantura and dvd audio from Australian GM) together with different titles on dozens of different versions either on vinyl (Oakland Sixty Nine, Berkeley Concert, Stone from the Bay, In Concert etc.) or cd (Hangout, Have a Beer, Out of Joint, From SF to Paris, Revolution Sixty Nine etc.) and for sure marks the difference between the 60s Stones and any other live band. According to Bill Graham: ‘the Stones had been late because there were no cars waiting for them’ then when the show started it was then marred by an abrupt lack of electricity that forced the band to play earlier in the set the acoustic numbers Prodigal Son and You Gotta Move and Jagger lamenting the ‘radio like’ quality of their sound (meaning AM quality of course). Far as I remember the Bill Grahjam tape was just used on Liver Than You’ll Ever Be (E.Valley 583) that in 2014 used it to substantiate the mono audience recording used to complete the set, however this is the first time these soundboard tracks come out on vinyl.  The funny thing is that the last 2 tracks on Side Two are in stereo, making this release even more peculiar.


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