REVIEW:

This is the second volume of DAC’s version of the Art Collins Tapes, and l ike Vol.1, tracks 1 to 6 on have the drawbacks of Art Collins Tapes And More ..., with the reversed left and right channels, higher pitch, and uneven volume. As with Vol.1, not all songs on this tape will appear for the first time, so first check which songs have been released: on Disc One Wanna Hold You, Pretty Beat Up, Cooking Up aka What I Am Saying Is True, Chris' Song, Part Of The Night aka Golden Caddy, Pink Pick and   on Disc Two Melobar all come from Bird's Vault --RI 61/16 Volume Three (OBR 93 CD 039) and other boots. The sound quality is almost the same, although sometimes pitch has been slightly modified. Unknown Instrumental (The Dog) on Disc One and on Disc Two The Dog and Show Me A Woman come from Bird's Vault --RI 61/16 Volume Two (OBR 93 CD 038) and can also be found on other boots.

Disc One begins with Wanna Hold You featuring a nice guitar lead by Richards. Then Pretty Beat Up,   which is the backing take of the released song; there are no guitar and harp overdubs with regards to Think You Like It" (DAC 109).

Feel On Baby is the short take featuring Keith on vocals.

The Unknown instrumental is the same song as Rocker (The Dog) presented in the previously released Vol.1, an unnecessary repetition.

Keep It Cool seems the same take as the one presented in Vol.1, in the same sound quality, but in fact is 10 seconds longer.

Can't Find Love, Heartbeat and Eliza saw the light first on Too Much Blood (DAC 182), but here there is little less hiss and they are easier to listen to. The next three songs Can't Find Love, Heartbeat take # 1 and Eliza on Disc One were also featured on Too Much Blood (DAC 182) in the same sound quality. The following five songs, namely Heartbeat take # 2, Heartbeat take # 3, Something I Want, Pull Over on Disc One and Show Me A Woman (track 3) on Disc Two were released at first on Bird's Vault --RI 61/16 Volume One (OBR 93 CD 037) and then on other boots.

Takes 2 and 3 of Heartbeat for the first time are presented as on the original tape and the blanks between songs are left as they were, however their order seems wrong.

The rest of Disc One has tracks like Cooking Up, Something I Want, Chris' Song, Part Of The Night, Pink Pick and Pull Over (with off mike vocals) which were also released by OBR. Here they seem to have a more natural sound quality than on those OBR discs, maybe they do come from a master tape.

On Disc Two 7 songs, namely The Golden Mile, In Your Hand, Run And Take, Dance Mr. K, Christine, Identification and Flirty are also found on All About You (DAC 187), but this time the sound quality is better than those.

The instrumental track The Dog reappears after The Golden Mile, as recorded on the original tape and the sound quality is the same. Since this work is based on the concept of presenting tracks from the original master tape, it seems that they are present even if they are duplicates, luckily not on the same disc.  

Show Me A Woman, which is presented in 2 takes, is an early version of Tie You Up (The Pain Of Love), which was also featured only on the OBR disc and here we find the earliest (I) take, but on Vol.1 there was Slinky and that is the same track which was called Instrumental Pain Of Love.

Melobar featuring Ronnie's slide was also released only on OBR's Bird’s Vault Vol.3. Track 15 is reported here as Melobar, but in reality it is like track 4 Show Me A Woman on this disc.

Track 6 is called Mick's Idea, but in reality is track 5 Melobar on this disc .

Hideaway is an upgraded version of the number found on Chainsaw Massacre (DAC 110), a song that was called Blues Jam # 3 /The Stumble on Chainsaw Massacre, but here seems to have the right speed and Stu’s piano shines.

Munich Hilton is a familiar outtake from Lonely At The Top (DAC 096), but the one recorded here is a valuable take that has not been announced so far. It starts with a fade-in in the middle of the song, but maybe Charlie was trying various fills and Ronnie stopped playing the guitar in the middle, maybe it's been a long time to play so far, it's a little full take.

Although the label claimed to be better than DAC 187, that release originally had better sound quality, but this work may have a slightly more subdued texture.

There are many existing takes in this work, and three songs first appeared on the Art Collins tape recorded in this work. However, one of them may overlap with Vol.1.

Many of these releases were recorded in the OBR release, but it has been remastered independently from the original tape, and the original content seems to have been restored, however it sounds like many of these tracks are lossy, so we can question the Master Tape Recording DAC is so proud of.

Vol.1 presented recordings of newly written songs in a studio with all band’s members, without relying on past songs as it happened for the creation of the previous work Tattoo You which was Mick's idea. This can be perceived here more directly listening through Vol.2. Mick seems to be playing the guitar everywhere, as heard on Show Me A Woman (the guitar in the center). Overall, it seems that the studio atmosphere is more relaxed in this Vol.2 than on Vol.1. Anyway, even those that believe to have a lot of outtakes from Undercover will find many discoveries here that leave them satisfied.
