REVIEW:

This release presents TMOQ's Welcome to New York, originally released in 1973 on LP, had great stereo soundboard sound quality of the last show of the Stones' '72 US tour on Mick Jagger's 29th birthday, and a great cover drawn by William Stout. Since then, it has been re-released many times on LP and CD, in varying quality. The attempt here was to try to use the best available sources for this version. For further info, see http://www.rollingstonesnet.com/Welcome_To_NY.htm and http://www.rollingstonesnet.com/VGP_Archive.html (scroll way down to VGP-312).

This is a revised (pitch corrected) reseed for the 40th anniversary of the show.

Tracks 1-6 are from a 2nd generation audience recording. Quality is decent for '72; this tape was discovered in 1992, on a Rolling Stones mailing list. The person that owned it got it from the taper itself. It seems this friend called Madison Square Garden before the show and asked if it was ok to bring a tape recorder, and they said it was. Of course, during the show someone noticed him taping and he had to stop, but somehow he managed to keep what he had recorded to that point. This is all there is. These tracks were transferred to PC in 2001 using a Nakamichi BX-300 tape deck with pitch control and a Turtle Beach Santa Cruz sound card. They have since been transferred back and forth between PC and CDR several times, always using EAC. For 2010, I have slowed the pitch 2% compared to the 2007 edition. This sounds more correct and matches Nasty Songs, (DAC 065) which is a commercial bootleg of the 2007 torrent.

Tracks 7-15 are from LP. Legend has it that the soundboard tape was stolen from the person recording the show for the Stones. TMOQ's Stones tapes don't circulate, so the original vinyl is the best source. Wgat was used here was a red vinyl original with RS-546 REI matrix, played on a Music Hall MMF-7 turntable with an Ortofon OM-20 cartridge, through an Adcom GFP-565 preamp, then into an M-Audio Audiophile 2496 sound card. The transfer was originally done in 2006 and LP surface noise was reduced using Cool Edit Pro 2.1. The volume drop at the end of Midnight Rambler was fixed as much as possible, and tracks rearranged back to their original running order; TMOQ took it upon themselves to re-sequence them. For 2007 the editing has been slightly improved as well as the indexing. For 2010, the pitch was slowed 3% compared to the 2007 edition. This sounds more correct matching Nasty Songs (DAC-0659 again.

Artwork is based on Vinyl Gang's Welcome to New York CD, which lifted its artwork from the original TMOQ LP. Cue sheet is included for playing or burning with CD text.

Please note that the sound on tracks 7-15 is far superior to the best known (as of 2007) CD release which are TSP's CD (and LP) from 1989. Those releases, also made from an original TMOQ LP, suffer from excessive NoNoise; it does reduce the hiss, but it also sucks all the life out of the music. The last few songs from the show (Street Fighting Man, Happy Birthday Mick and Uptight/Satisfaction) have not been added as they are only of a poor quality source.

 

The classic Stones live bootleg album from 1972, was the final show at the Madison Square Garden in New York where not only the end of the 72 US Tour was celebrated but also Jagger s 29th birthday; this concert was released in part as a vinyl album that came out first in special Soundboard quality from TMOQ in red vinyl though with tracks in wrong order and that was also released as Happy Bithday Mick!

In this concert there is also an accompanying percussion player that is evident even in melodic songs like You Can t Always Get What You Want, but of course on the more rhythmic performances like a fast and furious All Down The Line and the long and marauding Midnight Rambler are the highlights of this show with a hoarse Jagger at the centre stage. This is a nice release that however does not add anything to what we already had, may we hope for a 2022 50th anniversary official release?
