REVIEW:

This release from DAC present the complete recordings of both Hamburg 1973 shows, something that was attempted by Tarantura with its Hamburger Concert release, but failed since the second concert second part did originate from Bern.

The first concert of the Stones 1973 stop in Hamburg is the same source as on the no-label release Hamburg 1973 1st Show from 2013; recording of this concert came out on tape as Give Me A Hamburger but the tape ran too fast, then as Hamburg 73 1st and Hamburg 73 Tapes, Ernst Merck Halle and finally on a professional cdr called Hamburg 1973 1st show in 2013 for the first time (Hamburg 1973), later on a cdr called Afternoon in Hamburg. The first show here is in good shape, a bit better than on the Tarantura set, not so distorted sounds at the beginning, Jagger s vocals are fine and Taylor lead guitar is upfront on some numbers (Angie, You Can’t Always Get What You Want), however it seems to have been improved or coming from a less generation since it is not that distant as it was on Hamburg 1st.

The second show presented here is the same as on The German Affair (Pignose); recording from this concert were more widely available, at first on vinyl with 3 tracks on The Stars in the Sky Never Lie (Caution 197/810-11), 2 songs appeared on Jean Clarke Memorial Sonic Barbecue (TAKRL 1919), 2 songs on Sonic Barbecue (B.Island 25717), 3 songs on A German Affair (TMOQ-92), 2 on Tour Over Germany 1973 (TSP 300-36), 1 song is on Radio Caroline (27444 A/B).

On compact it came out on cdr on Satisfaction, Hamburg 73 Tapes, which offered both shows and then on Hamburg 73 Oct. 2, 2nd show. On silver discs then The Stars in the Sky Never Lie (VGP-ASTS 19781) in 2005 presented the full concert although three songs were cut and one not complete.2 songs can be found on The Jean Clarke Memorial Sonic Barbecue (VGP 246) and on   The Stars in the Sky Never Lie (Midnight Beat 141), 1 song on Reflection of a Stone Alone (VGP 043) and 2 on The Stars in the Sky They Never Lie (DAC 100); 2 songs are found on Best of Europe 73   (Hot Lips 003 3505). In 2003 came out The German Affair (PGN 046) that had a complete recording with the same source as Stars in the Sky (VGP-Asts 19781) but offering a lower generation and in 2010 3 tracks were featured on 1973 Tour (WLR 2135) 13 cd and 1 DVD box.

Last year then Tarantura issued Hamburger Concerto (TCDRS 49) double discs with both concerts, until it was discovered that the last concert second half was the same as Bern starting with Midnight Rambler. The recording here starts with Brown Sugar in good sound and the sound output slightly improves and is better than the 1st concert recording, it must be noted that at tape change, from Midnight Rambler onward, the sound output gets much better, however having finally the Hamburg 73 show complete together can certainly be regarded as a nice improvement. Packaging presents a rather standard front cover ad nothing particularly enthralling elsewhere.
