REVIEW:

This release comes from WLR despite the new label s name and presents the Vegas show on audio and video supplemented by both stops at the Empire Pool Club, Indio for the week long Desert Trip on video. This is the last concert the band played in 2016, not considering the 1 hour long venture in Foxboro for the Patriots private fest.   The Vegas concert has been previously released just as a no label Las Vegas 2016 T-Mobile Arena and on cdr as Las Vegas 2016 (Exile EXCDR20161022) with a set that included a DVD-R as well as on Welcome to Las Vegas (Goldplate GP 1604). This recording is much better than Goldplate, sharper with the guitars upfront although some distortion can be felt especially on background vocals. Amazingly the first disc starts with Happy, that should have been the last track. The band here is actually playing quite well, much better than on the second Desert Trip gig.

The Vegas video is very well recorded, multicamera that shows many up close footage in great quality(Jumping Jack Flash, Paint It Black, Midnight Rambler, Miss You, Sympathy For The Devil); footage is often steady except for some side recording which at times are shaky.

At this stage in their career the Stones seem to be looking for things they never did in the past, like this Desert Trip double event in a week.

As for the Desert Trip concerts they have been squeezed into one DVD-9, they have been released as professional cdr called Desert Trip, October 7,2016 and Desert Trip October 14, 2006, then as Desert Trip Weekend 1 (Exile EXCDR20161007) and Weekend 2 (Exile XCDR20161014) in two sets that included also a DVD-R of the concert. On silver it has been released as In The Desert  Weekend I (Goldplate GP 1602) and Weekend II (Goldplate GP 1603). This release presents both concerts housed in a DVD-9. The first concert presents an excellent multicamera source, but the core of the footage comes from a recording made from the first rows; very close although a bit shaky at times; also the stage screen footage is shown as well. The second concert is quite well recorded too, basically from the same point, so we can believe it has been taped by the same person. All in all this is a very nice release and, had it not been for that gross mistake on cd one, someone could even have believed it was not coming from the usual WLR guys!
