REVIEW:

Back in 2000 came out a Japanese bootleg called Dead Man Cumming (Eternal Records RSCDX 509/6234 051-2) but misidentified them saying they were from Washington and Foxboro instead; they were soon copied by other labels like Steel Wheels Rehearsals (no label), Better Than The Real Rebirth (Vague Rec.001-2) and Philadelphia Rehearsals (SODD 097-101) which featured soundboard recordings of the rehearsals the band had in Philadelphia before the starting date of the US 1989 Tour; the last two discs appeared as Unplugged (PGN 027)  and The Early Steel Wheels Outtakes (Voodoo Sounds) too. However, the first 3 discs had brickwalled mastering, way too loud, so it has been decided to work on them, first de-clipping them and after that phase & level correction were applied and new equalization done. Mr. D made the artwork. Brickwalling is mastering something where pretty much everything is at the same volume, damaging the recordings dynamics and so have create a flat top to the waveform rather than its normal, original shape.

These rehearsals are among the best of the best quality Stones boots; the set list is fantastic, and the Stones are performing two complete performances exactly as the August 31 opening night show, from start to finish. There are two complete performances of Shattered, which was only performed on the opening night and then dropped for the rest of the 1989-1990 tour because the power went out during that performance and apparently someone in the Stones was superstitious, so they never played the song again that tour.

In practice these are all songs that comprised the full opening concert set list, played in an empty stadium in order to test the live arrangements of the songs, some of which were new from the Steel Wheels album and many other old, but played differently from previous tours. Disc One ends with Dead Flowers that incorporates at the end some initial riffs of One Hit that opens in full on Disc Two. The songs are basically just the same as on a live concert plus there is some dialogue on stage between the back up singers and some band members, apart from the odd phrase like at the end of You Can t Always Get What You Want when Jagger adds the verse: Can I Have A Cup Of Tea Please to the well-known lyrics. Whatever the reason Miss You was played before Tumbling Dice, but it was after that on the Dead Man Cumming and Philadelphia Rehearsals releases, here the original order is restored.

The second chapter of the 89 Philly Stones dress rehearsals presents the same sort of set list of the previous night (except for Play With Fire); however there are differences, first of all the songs are performed in a tighter way (so that they will fit in a 2 discs set instead of 3) and that is not just because there is less dead air between the songs, but the tracks themselves are played at a different speed than the previous night, then there is a small audience that probably helped to recreate the live concert feel, urging the band to put together almost a live performance. Packaging originally featured 2 double and 1 single slimline jewel cases, however if you prefer you can adapt the artwork to a Fatboy case and have all discs together.

Soundwise it is certainly a better experience listening to the band rehearsing live with a more balanced output and the overall feel provides more satisfaction.
