REVIEW:

Here's the latest installment of the Gene Poole Collection, a random wellspring of recordings which surfaced in 2020. Tracks from this concert appeared on a tape called 30 minutes from FM Radio that suggests the existence of a partial soundboard recording, followed by two other tapes called New York MSG and by New York November 12th, 1981 that lacked the first 3 songs.
There are at least two other audience sources of this show, one which began circulation sixteen years ago from F.H.'s master tape that is this and a Vinyl Gang Production boot released in 2001 titled Stoned MSG 1981 (VGP 271). Miss You, Honky Tonk Women and Brown Sugar can be found on Ride Like The Wind (RS 041-044) and Going To A Go Go can be found on the vinyl album Hot And Wild (The Amazing Pig TAP 002).

Gene managed to secure a spot for this show in the press booth, with his mics dangling down towards the PA stacks and no audience directly in the taping path. Per Gene the press booth no longer exists at MSG, now replaced with box seats. It had been primarily for writers at the sports events, constructed as a level ring above the audience, stage right, audience left. Concrete tables lay in front, between the press and the railing. Liner notes say that "the tape ends before Mick finishes his goodbyes and before the Star Spangled Banner kicks in, so that's perhaps where the tape ran out", which is untrue since the latter is presemt as outro right after Satisafaction. Anyway this is a nice recording that seems better than the VGP release, too bad it is mono.

The Stones play their usual set of extended versions 81 style with the nice addition of some past ballads like Time Is On My Side or You Can’t Always Get What You Want where we can appreciate once more a delicate and tasteful piano playing by Stu; Waiting On A Friend features Ernie Watts inventive sax soloing all over with Ron Wood answering filling in small notes.

 


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