REVIEW:

This project was born after discovering the new ‘Best of’-LP by Carla Olson and Mick Taylor, available only as 12” vinyl LP. That release , as a novelty, used the end of a version of Sway ... which was already circulating among collectors: this version was taken from a bootleg in bad sound quality. So, it has been decided to publish this collection of recordings that are circulating; who knows, maybe another version of Sway will be used for the next 'Best of'?  In fact there are a couple of official releases of the concerts that feature C.Olson and M.Tayor, one being Too Hot For Snakes (Razor & Tie) and Too Hot For Snake Plus (Collector’s Choice Music) which presents tracks from The Ritz shows from March 4th; another official release of this show was just called  Live (Demon Fiend-Sonet), Live at the Roxy (Jasmac). A cd single with Sway/Silver Train was also released (Demon Rec,) with tracks taken from the Roxy concerts.

For these concerts the line-up was: Mick Taylor on guitar and vocals, Carla Olson on vocals and guitar, George Callins on guitar and backing vocals, Jesse Sublett on bass and backing vocals, Rick Hemmert on drums plus Ian McLagan on keyboards, Juke Logan on harmonica, Lisa Bronston or Bronstein on backing vocals, Phil Kenzie and Tom Junior Morgan on sax.

Unfortunately, o nly an incomplete but very good recording is circulating.

Some of the reworks included: for all tracks: sound amplification around +2 db, transitions between the tracks reworked so that now each starts with a song, but they were often preceded by a gap:

small gap deleted or upgraded on track 2 at 3’27, on track 4 at 5’38, on track 5 at 5’42, on track 7 at 5’43 and on track 10 at 4’45. About tuning: channel re-balanced (+30% to the left) and some micro noises deleted. Note that there is a fade in/out before the encore Clean Cut Kid. It has also been deleted a 4 seconds count-in sequence which was repeated before the start of Sway. These songs do not come from one recording but from 2 different ones, the first 9 tracks from a great, but incomplete source, the remaining ones from a less good source, which however featured what was missing on the other one; there is however a rumor that claims the first 9 tracks come from the early show and the remaining tracks from the second one. The main recording is quite nice and Taylor’s guitar stands out with his descriptive style filled of razor blades solos embellishing the tunes, remarkable is of course Sway which clocks in at 5.47 and is for sure the concert’s highlight. Other rarely played songs are Taylor’s Broken Hand here he sings lead vocals that is sung live here for the first time and Dylan’s Clean Cut Kid, apart from Carla Olson’s own tunes.  Just a bunch of homemade cdr offered this recording which in this form is certainly presented in its best shape.


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