REVIEW:

This DAC release couples the newly discovered recording from Boston 69 1st show recorded by Diane DiVittorio Strauss, which appeared last year in September on YouTube in lossy format to the 2nd show recording by Joe Maloney. Before, the 1st concert was just available as fair recording on tape as Boston 1969 and Live At The Boston Garden and then on cdr with the same title and as The One That Closed The Bedroom Door, all lacking Prodigal Son and in poor quality; here only You Gotta Move is missing, although we can say it was played since 6 seconds of the end of that song are here recorded. This appear to be the lossless tape from the original uploader, who is still present on IORR where it first appeared and claimed to have been surprised by the feedback received to her upload.

This recording was recorded with Craig 212 portable reel-to-reel recorder, Craig mic, using BASF and Sunset tapes. This tape was over 50 years old already when transferred earlier in 2020. The famous Madison Square Garden concerts, resulting in the album Get Your Ya Ya's Out, had happened just days before this concert. There are some dropouts in the recording up to Stray Cat Blues and on Honky Tonk Women, due to the analogue tape losing magnetic particles, which seemed to have been patched up as far as possible; the sound output is certainly better than what was previously available; we cannot blame the taper though, as this happened with more experienced people too; there was suipposed to exist the full film of one of the Boston concerts by the Maysles Brothers, but it seems the film rolls themselves got badly damaged by humidity, this is what had leaked when Albert Maysles was still alive.

At the original tape beginning we can just listen to the taper’s introduction, then some minutes of Terry Reid who was the opening act and whose 69 recordings are quite rare (BB King was also due to play but a flat tire bloked him on his way to the venue from the airport and the Stones went on stage without waiting for him) before the classic Sam Cutler introduction.

The second show is the Joe Maloney tape; this concert was released as That s No Way To Get Along (Morganfield 004) , a poor quality recording, enhanced some years ago as Some Satanic Tour 1969 (DAC 015); then came Have You Heard About Boston? Live 69 (Exile 038), and Well You Heard About Boston (Bad Wizard (STH-7 and Scorpio) without the Cutler introduction some years ago that included the missing last song which came from a different source on the Morganfield release. Then was released Boston Garden 1969-1972 (Palladium/Aragawa) a 2 cdr set which presented the Boston 69 2nd show coupled with the 72 one. The 69 concert was the same mono recording, but with no hiss and a slightly better sounding output where Watts drums can be heard a bit more along with Wyman work. Later Tarantura cut the cake offering a stereo version of the concert, although with some hiss on one channel but nevertheless a great upgrade, said to be a master recording of the Joe Maloney source, called Let The Garden Bleed (TCDRS 26). Recently the 2nd Boston 69 concert came out also as part of Best of 1969 (WLR TRX 69) in mono. This version is better though, having no hiss and a full sound that is remarkably clean, therefore we can call this the definitive version of the 69 Boston shows, that is until a new tape with You Gotta Move from the 1st show will pop up. Artwork is very good although on the front cover there is written Have You Heard About The Boston, which could be taken as the set title, despite what is written on the back cover .
