REVIEW:

This release from Tarantura could seem to be a copy of   The Boulevard of Paris (DAC 158) which presented an updated version of the second Paris show the Stones played in 1976; using a recent soundboard version that first appeared on YouTube as soundtrack of an uploaded pro shot video on Disc One and the rest of the concert on Disc Two in good audience quality. There is however a bid difference since Disc One presents a stereo soundboard version, which is also higher in volume and definitely clearer than on DAC s version and this seems an indication that the source is not the Youtube video. The audience part is just as great, a stereo recording that matches the soundboard tracks as far as presence and sound excellence. Both discs have however been mastered very hot, so that the volume is the highest possible, making at times hard to distinguish the channels, however the audience screaming at the end of the songs makes it easy to identify the stereo source.

It is however difficult to understand the title (why did they dropped the P in Pavillon?) and it is especially puzzling why this title is released just in 100 numbered copies, instead of the customary 150 form this label. The recording starts with the   1976 opening drums intro like the DAC version and also the following screams and whistling from the audience are much less. The band seems inspired even if there are some mistakes here and there but the overall feeling is one of complete control of the performance. This concert was released as Aux Abattoirs (VGP 241) and then on Exile a Paris an 8 cdr set from Pignose (PGN 122) with the other Paris shows, replicated on silver in 2013 on Le Loups Dans L’ Abattoir that included all the 76 Paris concerts in a 8 cd box from Godfather Records (GR Box 20). Live in Paris (Goldplate GP 1501) presented a 2 DVD 2 cd set offering the whole concert of 6 June (on video too) and the soundboards tracks from 5 June.

Honky Tonk Women, You Gotta Move and Happy have ended up on Love You Live, while the former has also appeared on the Stones 50th Anniversary 2 cd set that came out in 2013. This release is certainly an improvement well worth the high price requested for such a limited issue.
