REVIEW:

This release was the first one announced to propose a copy of the Stones Detroit 1969 concert transferred from LP, however it has been anticipated by the no label release we reviewed before. This is   the transfer from the original vinyl LP featuring the Olympia Stadium, Detroit 69 show; though not officially having its logo this is a Tarantura release. This Detroit performance was one of the first boots of the Stones to come out after Liver Than You ll Ever Be and was entitled We Didn t Rally Get It On Until Detroit, sporting a purple label; after that soon a copy came out just called RS without a proper label name and then We Never Really Got It On Till Detroit which was produced by a different label, its great success was due to the fact that it was recorded in stereo which was very unusual for the times, but the problem was that the source was downgraded to mono; some cds have been released based on this LP, among them Some Satanic Tour Vol.2 seems to have been the best. Nonetheless, there was too much hiss on the original recording, plus some of the songs were mono and above all the audience was too much upfront, in addition to that Little Queenie was cut and the reverberation at the end of some songs was too huge. So, this we got a clean transfer from We Didn t Really Get It On Until Detroit LP. Certainly the excitement of the surrounding audience between songs is conspicuous, but it also is sufficient to propose this as a real document of the times. In 1969, when the act of recording a concert itself was rare, it is remarkable that there was a taper who attempted to record the show in stereo. This release presents a great sounding output that, although not comparable to the better defined recording of Oakland, still captures listeners attention thanks to the involvement the audience that was clearly experiencing a great performance. There is of course some rumble created by Wyman s bass that affects the beginning of Jumping Jack Flash while here Carol seems better sounding with Stu s piano that can be easily heard on one channel; and at times (during You Gotta Move) are quite audible some noises coming from the stylus on the vinyl grooves. Now deep into the tour Sympathy For The Devil has evolved into a complex arrangement with Taylor s guitar solos that begin at 5.45 matching Richards efforts, while the sound on Love In Vain and on the acoustic numbers is crystal clear. Midnight Rambler seems to have a different pattern with regards to other shows thanks to Richards and Taylor guitar proficiency. Jagger also seemed more confident when the tour had reached its middle stage and the audience during Honky Tonk Women that had become popular was delighted to hear Jagger singing about Detroit city. The excitement that was growing explodes with the first notes of Satisfaction that create a full texture that stands out, because this is a stereo recording. This concert came out on tape as Thank You Detroit City, then it was released on vinyl as We Never Got It On Till Detroit (incomplete single album from Contraband Records 3712 missing Midnight Rambler and Live With Me), We Didn t Really Get It On Till Detroit (2LP complete) also released as Live in Detroit 2 LP (no label RS (1/2), Live From Detroit (Bash Rec.), 8 stereo tracks on Stoned Again (no label 2A-B)a Sweden bootleg LP and on Live At The Roundhouse 1971 (S1-2); three tracks were released on Mick Taylor We Thank You (RS MT 1-2) then repackaged by Space Monkey Rec. with a different cover; on compact came out Live From Detroit 69 (Minotauro Rec.) that was also released on LP and on a cd with the same name and 3 tracks on Hawaiian Top the Second show (WG 25-26). Some Satanic Tour Vol.2 (DAC 098), three soundboard tracks were released on American Tour 1969 Soundboard Compilation cdr (Copyright Rec.) while Detroit City (MD 22 Midnight Dreamer) came out some years ago and again replicated on Dallas and Detroit (Midnight Dreamer MD 328). This concert is also on Oakland Coliseum Arena 1969 (SODDS 029) and some time ago came also out as Bane Rendition (Dasuje/Odeon) and as Storm America (Belzeebub BSD 361-2) which reproduced and reworked   Live From Detroit (Bash Rec.) and was included into In Concert 1969 (WLR 2160) box., recently 3 soundboard tracks have appeared on 1969 (no label) cd and of course this whole concert has appeared on We Didn t Really Get It On Until Detroit (no label) . This is a nice release offering another good sounding recording from the Stones 1969 Tour on its 50th Anniversary, his time packaging is a real reproduction of the original vinyl album cover(ass well as the disc itself replicates the label) that adds that vintage feel that will serve to attract more younger fans.
