Here is DAC version of the
recently surfaced Stones outtakes batches, the good news is that they are all
found on this set, the bad news that they are still mp3 sourced.
However, on their ads for this
release the label claimed it came from tracks ‘carefully corrected by fans’ a
hint that it is a copy of Cpt Acid Remasters, where treble frequencies had been
enhanced (Watts cymbals can be heard clearly now) and adding to that the known bias
DAC has always had to boost the lower frequencies we get the best possible
result so far. Here there are anyway 60 tracks, so apart from the 50 coming
from the fully finished outtakes set, we have the 2 official songs that have
appeared as bonus in the Japan edition of Goat’s Head Super Deluxe edition and
the 7 new outtakes that leaked later, allegedly from Vinnie Karslake, Jo Wood’s
brother in less brilliant shape. Having decided to present all these in
chronological order these 7 takes are therefore positioned mostly in the
Bridges to Babylon outtakes.
Disc Three Tracks 1 is a complete
version of Keep It Cool, so now we shall examine the Keep It Cool saga. The
first time this track appeared was version 1 which is the long one that starts
with 2 count ins and lasts 20.57 (first posted by BKEYS on IORR, then on Foxes
in the Boxes Vol.3 JEMS/WOW 123, the Virchov Tape (DAC 181) then on Undercover Complete
Recording Sessions SBA 017, Undercover Definitive Recording Sessions Goldplate
1701, Undercover Sessions (Mayflower 135-8) The Art Collins Tapes & More EV
1288-89 and on The Incredible Art Collins Tapes Vol. 1 (DAC 200).
Version 2 the short one that
clocked in at 9.54 on Foxes in the Boxes V.1 JEMS/WOW 12, then on a vinyl album
of the same name by OBR 93036 and on silver disc on Undercover Complete Recording
Sessions SBA 017 copied on Undercover Definitive Recording Sessions Goldplate
1701; then it appeared on Can’t Find Love (DAC 159) and on Art Collins Tapes
& More EV 1288-89, Undercover Sessions (Mayflower 135-8) then on The Incredible
Art Collins Tapes vol.1 (DAC 200). A slightly longer version 10.01 appeared on
The Art Collins Tapes vol. 12-01 ending with drums as well as on the Incredible
Art Collins Tapes Vol. 2 (DAC 201).
Version 3 lasts 5.24 and has finished
with vocals and appeared on Fully Finished Outtakes Black Frisco Records 101-3
as well as on The Chronological Fully Finished Outtakes Acid Project Special.
Version 4 that can be found on Undercover
Of The Night ZR lasting 27.05 is a fake looped version.
Version 5 was found on IORR,
lasted 30.33 but ended with drums, contrary to
Version 6 which lasts 30.58 and
was assembled by Cpt Acid who mixed 2 versions and can be found on The Art Collins
Tapes & More (WLR AC 783).
Version 7 is this one which lasts
31.04 minutes according to the label, although the music stops again at 30.58 and
the remaining seconds are dead air; this is called complete because it ends
with the drums, although it seems to have been a Frankenstein operation too,
just like the other three previous ones.
On this disc Track 4 (Strictly
Memphis, has been patched adding the intro, having reversed channels; talking
about editing, the noise sounds after Cooking Up and Flip The Switch have been
Having examined the outtakes in
previous reviews, it sounds pointless to re-do such work, although it must be
stretched out that the so called Vinnie Karslake tracks were not part of Cpt.
Acid Remasters. One stunning (in a negative sense) thing are front and back
covers which show the band on stage in its latest years (Manchester 2018 and Lisbon
2014) which are completely out of context here; I haven’t rated as such the
whole packaging because in fact the 2 inner sleeves with sources are precious
and, although hard to read without a magnifying lens or a digital transfer,
offer valuable information on overdubbing dates. All in all this is a valuable
release and not just for late comers.
The best toys are the ones that are both educational and multi-purposeful.
