REVIEW:

I f you overslept on New Years Day or were watching football and were not on YouTube, most likely you missed the 8 hours availability of a hundred some unreleased Stones outtakes and live performances from 1969.  Some call it the holy grail, some say they would have expected higher quality from the Abkco masters. Some sources are incredible, while others may have seen similar quality on bootlegs in the past. Regardless, it s here and worthwhile! Presented in chronicle order with the audio watermarks removed. Skeletunes originally was only going to issue tracks previously unavailable on 6 discs but then decided to put out the whole ABKCO YouTube dump. So, it s now on 10 discs rather than 6 .In their haste to release this quickly, there is some dead air on a few tracks that should have been removed and a few double edits. However, we think you ll find plenty here to treasure!

So here we have all that was placed on that YT channel RS69TRX and we ll examine everything disc by disc. On Disc One we have 14 songs from the first Oakland 79 show for some reason missing Live With Me, however these tracks are in the usual mono audience quality, so it is not clear why they have been published, how good a copyright preservation will be for concerts recorded by someone in audience? This first discs ends with 2 songs from Fort Collins in surprising good quality, actually Honky Tonk Women is preceded by a brief show introduction but the song fades away after 2.06 minutes, then comes Brown Sugar taken from the Hot Rocks 2LP first pressing that featured different mixes of this song and Wild Horses, however   although recorded in 69 these racks came out officially in 1971.

Disc Two has the other Oakland concert, missing again Live With Me, Little Queenie and Street Fighting Man, this is peculiar as we know Bill Graham recorded (and later broadcasted) songs from this concert in soundboard quality, albeit in mono; here the beginning of I m Free is repeated twice, should have been edited out; unfortunately they forgot here to delete the watermark that mars Satisfaction, what follows after Honky Tonk Women is the Introduction (with 30 seconds of dead air) and the first song from Los Angeles 2nd concert, one more live song from Phoenix, a version of Gimme Shelter featuring alternate vocals (that ends abruptly at 3.59) and quite strangely a 1978 rehearsal version of the same tune from the Woodstock Rehearsals. Discs 3 and 4 are weirdly set up with the former having the first 9 songs from Champaign for a mere 40 minutes and the latter the remaining songs plus 7 from Madison Square Gardens 27 November, it would probably have made more sense dedicating each show to a disc. Anyway on Disc Three Track 2 has Street Fighting Man (unlisted) that comes and goes amid dead air seconds through the end, what an agony is listening to that, but that was Abkco uploading mistake! The mood changes rapidly when the Madison Square Garden show come due to they being in soundboard quality, albeit in mono. On Disc Six unfortunately the first Honky Tonk Women (with alternate lyrics) is cut abruptly at the end.

The last 2 Discs are devoted to Altamont which is presented in mixed formats plus 3 more outtakes, Wild Hoses from Hot Rocks(different mix) and the version with strings and glass harmonica and You Got The Silver sung by Jagger.

Packaging is really peculiar, it consists of   a large plastic box that on the outside reminds the old VHS tapes box (the artwork is in fact similar to that one) and inside has 4 plastic cd holders that house 1 disc per side (plus front and back case), there is however a small note informing customers to pay attention when trying to remove the discs since these cases are notorious for breaking discs if people try to extract them without pressing hard the button inside the disc and use all four grasp points without forcing the discs which will eventually break. An 8 pages booklet has each track source provided.

So this is most likely the only release that is presenting all of the Abkco uploads and despite some gaps, dead air and unintentional cuts, could somehow represent an historical product.


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