REVIEW:

This release presents parts of the Rock n Roll Circus soundtrack to which Stones members participated presenting them with some comments coming from the radio program The Lost Lennon Tapes (published by the Walrus label). The Lost Lennon Tapes was an American music documentary series presented by Elliot Mintz , comprising a three-hour premiere episode and 218 one-hour episodes, broadcast on the Westwood One Radio Network between the 24th January 1988 and the 29th March 1992 (so before the Rock And Roll Circus was officially released, which was not before October 1996). The sources kept are from the “Rock’n’Roll Circus Sessions” published by Original Master Series (OMS 325-328) and from a video rip coming from Hallucination.

The film was at first released officially on cd and VHS in October 1996 by Abkco but re-released on DVD in October 2004 adding some bonus tracks, namely Bill Wyman, Brian Jones and other commentaries plus Yer Blues bonus footage and this release presents that enhanced audio document.  Less than a week after the release of Beggars Banquet the Rolling Stones assembled in London a gathering of friends to film what should have been a TV Special but turned out to be a vanished dream for the 28 years that followed. This fantastic group of musicians and artists shot footage for two consecutive nights, but then the result wasn’t deemed suitable to be released by the Stones themselves, until it finally came out in October 1996 after Abkco and the Stones somehow located the original film reels of the never broadcasted special in Ian Stewart’s garage. Everyone should agree with what the ads said about this film, that it is a time capsule of a bygone era and the footage, apart from its musical and historic value, showed a nice representation of what used to be the sixties. Disc starts with the presentation of the program, followed by Mick Jagger and John Lennon introducing the Dirty Mac with an a cappella snippet, Julian Lennon voice and the rehearsal sequence presentation, then come Yer Blues rehearsal from Nagra reel (OMS), Mick Jagger and John Lennon introducing the Dirty Mac (OMS) merged version, Yer Blues (take 1) from Nagra reel (OMS) with some off-mike vocals, Yer Blues (take 1) (OMS) vocal track, Yer Blues (take 1) merge from both previous files, Yer Blues (take 2) mono mix with count-in (OMS), completed by the radio program with journalist explanations, then John Lennon and Ethan Russel the famous photographer commenting Yer Blues (a/k/a Whole Lotta Yoko). Next John Lennon introducing The Rolling Stones (more complete), Parachute Woman rehearsal 1, rehearsal 2 first seconds missing, channel rebalanced, equalized. We get then You Can’t Always Get What You Want rehearsal: both circulating versions came from the same take but were more or less complete and with different speed and fidelity; You Can’t Always Get What You Want from a file sent by Hallucination; this version is more authentic, as it was remixed for the official release in 1996, especially the first minute is very interesting because Brian’s guitar can be heard here and Nicky Hopkins’ piano is also more present. This recording has now been de-clicked and equalized (+10% to the left channel). There was a little gap at 2’09 (of ‘YCAG), so it was decided to patch it with one second coming from 3’23. The official version revealed the correct speed: this recording has now been accelerated by +4,3%. As bonus we get: Mick Jagger and John Lennon (‘a cappella’-sequence) merge from both versions, Jumping Jack Flash merge from stereo and video versions, Parachute Woman merge, No Expectations merge , You Can’t Always Get What You Want merge, Sympathy For The Devil merge and Salt Of The Earth with Keith Richards first chorus reversed from the right channel to the left and after 4’20 it’s only from the video source. This is a very interesting release that adds something else to this well-known event.
