REVIEW:

After the release of 1969, which proved to be a remarkable disc, this time we get another no label release which is a compilation album presenting soundboard recordings from the 1972 US tour. The sources are famous vinyl releases called Philadelphia Special and Welcome To New York City well know treasure troves of soundboard tracks as well as the classic bootleg called Welcome To New York. All concerts from this tour were originally recorded on a multi-track stereo soundboard recording, allegedly for the release of a live album which however, due to the contract problem regarding the use of songs from the Decca years, the album never happened although broadcasted later allegedly by a Cleveland radio (WMMS); anyway a recording of the first Philadelphia show was also done by Radio Luxembourg. The Stones themselves worked on the tapes in October 72 and Bill Wyman overdubbed some of his bass works. There has been a broadcast that used part of it that became the source for Philadelphia Special bootleg and many rough mix songs leaked.
These songs were not the only soundboard ones though, but there were other ones and a compilation of all of them has appeared under the name of Plug In Flush Out in the vinyl era, subsequently released on CD. Like 1969, this time all tracks are released on a limited double set. Among the two discs, the first disc is More Philadelphia Special as the title claims presents materials that is not found on the bootleg Philadelphia Special. In the old days, we got TSP s Philadelphia Special II and  Plug In Flush Out LP. However, this time there has been a thorough review of   pitch and equalization. Even the slightest sound distortion has been deleted as well as the space between songs that often is found in all other sources, having added the audience cheers that were present in the previous live boots. Basically what we have here are rough mixes, so the stereo soundboard recording sounds a little different from the official one. However, thanks to the various adjustments made in this release, it is possible to enjoy a sense of sound stability that is not comparable to any previous release. Disc Two sounds slightly better than Disc One. The second disc includes video-related soundboard recordings in the first half, as can be heard from the fact that the opening track is Brown Sugar from MSG broadcasted on the American television program, Dick Cavett Show. Since it is a performance with the band at its peak, it is easy to appreciate the sound quality that the punching power of the performance that gets amplified by the mono source. It s great to listen to the Intro with Satanic Majesties music as well then, for example, Sweet Virginia is the same performance as on the first disc, but this is also in mono and sounds completely different and can be enjoyed as a different mix. Furthermore, everything here like Jumping Jack Flash in Canada, which was broadcasted on a news program (despite being shortened) definitely has a sound that will make listeners feel enthusiastic. Songs like You Can t Always Get What You Want  and All Down The Line on Disc Two have been remixed.
Midnight Rambler can be heard here from the first show instead of the familiar second show in Fort Worth; this extraordinary performance is a symbol of a tour that was called Rock and Roll Dynamite. This is an incandescent appearance that makes you want to call it a godly performance. Fans can rightly be overwhelmed by the intensity of the performance, especially those who hear it for the first time. In the second half of the second disc here are the takes that were in progress for the live album that was supposed to be released. For example, Tumbling Dice is a powerful tune with overdubs on Mick singing, and Keith had added harmony vocals there, re-recording with a vocal arrangement that was not on stage. In other words, the work for the release that was carried out in the Get Yer Ya-Ya s Out! from the 1969 tour has been redone.
The soundboard source that used this live album was released under the name of   Keep Your Motor Running, but this time we get a most natural version, This also thanks to a thorough adjustment of pitch. Natural sound quality versions so far have often been overlooked in recent years and for all enthusiasts who listened to the soundboard of the 72-years tour, it has never been possible before to locate them all in such a useful two-disc compilation. Classic artwork grace front cover with a well known 72 live shot. It is hard to imagine that an official 72 live album would eventually come out even after the 50 years copyright will expire in 2022, since then this may as well be called the definitive 1972 tour portfolio.
