REVIEW:

This is the first volume of DAC’s version of the Art Collins Tapes, just like the previous versions here are left and right channels reversed, pitch that should be increased, speed corrected and volume levelled. Probably the best thing about this release being that tracks are lossless, except for the first 2 tracks on Disc One, contrary to the mp3 versions that leaked at first; stereo separation is quite extreme but there is still some hiss, especially heard at songs end when most times the tape is left running unnecessarily; anyway let’s get a look track by track:

Too Tough (Triple X) and It Must Be Hell (different vocals) on Disc 1 is the same as on OBR Bird's Vault --RI 61/16 Volume Three (OBR 93 CD 039) and on other bootlegs.

Undercover Of The Night, She Was Hot, Feel On Baby, Too Much Blood on Disc One and on Disc Two All The Way Down were also released by DAC on Too Much Blood (DAC 182).

On Disc One Tried To Talk Her Into It comes from Foxes In The Boxes Vol.1 & 2 as well as on other boots.

The long, unreleased version of Keep It Cool # 2 few seconds shorter than 21 minutes on Disc Two was first heard in Foxes In The Boxes Vol.3, but there the bass at the beginning was not present and this version is slightly longer and more complete.

The following 9 songs were not previously released by DAC and are Tie You Up (The Pain Of Love) with different vocals, All The Way Down that has the same vocals as those used in the official version, but the chorus is different, this version was shortened and edited.

Pretty Beat Up (XMAS issue) is an instrumental version with off mike vocals, has a flashy mix featuring synth brass throughout.

The last song on Disc One is Dog Shit which is another instrumental featuring synth brass with an 80s feel.

Keep It Cool # 1 at the beginning of Disc Two is also a different take from Foxes In The Boxes Vol.1 & 2 with abrupt drums end; this version is about 9.54 minutes long and we can say that this song has 3 takes. Keep It Cool #2 s tarts with double count in by Jagger whose vocals are mainly in falsetto and lasts 20.57 minutes.

Gotta Know You (Wanna Hold You # 1) is a pre-production sound take with Mick and Keith prior to the recording from November 11th. Keith is on vocals and guitar and Mick is on drums; it is said to be the initial take of Wanna Hold You, but only a part of the guitar is similar. This comes from Paris basement as well as the following track Wanna Hold You # 2 which with the Instrumental called Rocker (whose real name is The Dog) can also be found on OBR Bird's Vault --RI 61/16 Volume Two (OBR 93 CD 038).

Gotta Know You, track 6 is the band’s performance, almost an instrumental with Jagger's vocals in the middle.

Slinky (slow instrumental version of The Pain Of Love) is an earliest instrumental take of that tune lasting   exactly 10 minutes.

Slave (Vocal 1 Complete) which is identified as a bonus track, is the same performance heard in The Pain Of Love (DAC-107) with the same vocals, but there is no overdubbed saxophone. The version recorded on The Pain Of Love was mono and faded out in less than 8 minutes and 40 seconds, while the take here is stereo, about 1 minute longer than that and runs through the end uncut. This is a nice product that presents these tracks in their best shape so far, let's hope the remaining volumes will keep the same standard.


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