concert of the Stones 1975 US Tour came out at first on Sad Songs Is All I Know
(Morganfield Rec.005) in a good audience recording albeit with some hiss but
lacking You Can’t Always Get What You Want and in 2000 as Goodnight America
(VGP 239) which had You Can’t Always Get What You Want, however cut at the
beginning; in 2010 this concert was part of Tour of Americas 1975 (WLR 2124);
in 2018 came out a worked up version called Sad Songs Is All I Know (MG 005 Cpt.Acid)
that is a remastering job of the Morganfield title. Fa Fa Fa Fa Fa (Sad Song) was
released in 1992 on I Can’t Judge The Music By Looking At The Cover (Imax 001)
vinyl ep and later in 2001 also on The Missing Jewels (Rattlesnake 025-8)
This is a
great recording made by Matt who asked to post it on a famous torrent site and
subsequently on a Stones fans message board. Here is a brand uncirculated tape
that comes from a different source than the Morganfield/VGP/Captain Acid
versions. And a what a GREAT capture!
Here are taper’s
it's worth, the Buffalo 1975 tape is better than most, due to a tarp over the
stage which torpedoed the sound into my cassette deck 10 yards away. Amazing
drum sound for a stadium recording."
The show in
Buffalo was the last one if the band’s TOTA in '75.
previous posts have been quite successful, they were:
GLIM 01 was
Mick Jagger with Jeff Beck in 87
GLIM 02 was
Rod & Ron in pretty soaked up mood, jamming and "singing"
courtesy by Matt Rosney a.k.a. Glimmerman.
doubt this is a much better sounding recording than what was before available,
with great bass and drums, but all instruments are audible here and we get all
tracks complete, that includes You Can’t Always Gey What You Want whose beginning
had always been missing. Packaging is however quite spartan, all in b&w and
the back cover does not differentiate tracks between Disc One and Two, so it
will be up to every downloader to choose how to arrange them. Anyway, this is a
great release that will undoubtedly please all the fans of the Stones 1975 US Tour.
