REVIEW:

Here is the long sought after third and possibly final volume from OBR on cd which presents again the great unknown tracks and fine instrumentals that where housed on the vinyl version plus 3 bonus tracks that are not on the vinyl version. It must be noted though that on Too Tough early version (Triple X or XXX working title) the bridge is supposed to be sung by Keith Richards, however I don t hear him here; Stop That II ends with studio talking (listen to that! says someone) while version III ends with a guitar strumming ; on Chris song Chris Kimsey himself is on piano. All Mixed Up, also known as I m All Mixed Up is the (instrumental) first version which is 8.37 minutes long begins with a guitar adjusting its tone. Cookin Up I which was also known as What I Am Saying Is True and lasts 6.53 minutes. Let s go examine the bonus tracks then, as for the rest of the tracks you can refer to the vinyl review: Part Of The Night is actually Golden Caddy with lyrics mumbled by Jagger (saying what about her, what about   her), a catchy tune that could have been released if the whole song had been polished a bit, this track lasts 4.10 minutes. Pretty Beat Up version I, whose working title was Xmas Issue, is another instrumental track, the best sounding version heard with no hiss at all, although lacking a bit of high frequencies, clocking in at 5.55. Wanna Hold You Version II which is 7.05 minutes long is here in its best shape ever, stereo and without hiss but with the right balance between all the instruments, proving that the elusive mid October-7 November 1982 session tracks held in an unknown Paris studio circulate in excellent quality, or at least this track does.

The overall sound is excellent as usual on these discs due to great mastering job, which enables to perceive a cleaner stereo separation; packaging is essential following classic OBR style which reminds collectors of vinyl bootlegs golden era. This release is another masterpiece from OBR presenting unknown tracks/versions in great sound, no wonder that it has appeared first on the Japan market, maybe to prevent unauthorized copying, although many collectors are aware that having the original is something else.
