The Lost and Found Mike The Mike Millard Tapes Vol.173 is the subtitle of this release that has just appeared on a famous torrent site. This 1989 L.A. concert had previously only appeared on tape on a set called Live in Los Angeles 21 October 1989 and later on a cdr set with the same name; there has also been another cdr set called LA Third Night 89.

JEMS’ Lost and Found Mike the MICrophone series presents recordings made by legendary taper Mike Millard, a.k.a. Mike the MICrophone, best known for his masters of Led Zeppelin done in and around Los Angeles circa 1975-77.

Until 2020, the Lost and Found series presented fresh transfers of previously unavailable first-generation copies made by Mike himself for friends like Stan Gutoski of JEMS, Jim R, Bill C. and Barry G. These sources were upgrades to circulating copies and in most instances marked the only time verified first generation Millard sources had been directly digitized in the torrent era. But that all changed with the discovery of many of Mike Millard’s original master tapes, long rumoured to have been destroyed or lost, which have been found. Among these was located this concert that came just before the Stones fourth and final night at the colossal Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles, site of two Olympic Games.

Due to its enormous size, the Memorial Coliseum is a challenging venue for taping as so few seats are close to the PA. Even with Millard sitting in the main section on the floor, seven rows back, the recording has been called the best of the six recorded by Millard on that tour (counting Oakland too) being full and steady. The setlist is a bit different too with the inclusion of One Hit instead Harlem Shuffle and Dead Flowers and Play With Fire, instead of Little Red Rooster and Angie. There is just a drawback, Paint It Black is cut due to a tape change. In fact, for those interested in burning this to cdr, please take note that You Can’t Always Gey What You Want won’t fit into Disc One and has to be placed at the beginning of Disc Two.

This recording sounds a bit distant, but presents the Stones in the greatest shape from their 1989 return tour. The whole recording is generally fine, better than the following night; the impression is anyway that this too runs a bit too fast like the other Millard recording from the following day.
