REVIEW:

This release from DAC presents again Essen 73 first concert coupled with the recent upgrade of Stuttgart 70; Essen 1973 first show comes from the masters recording that was used by the makers of Brown Sugar & White Snow (Caution ASTS-198 810) a color vinyl album that came out in 1981 offering 10 tracks in stereo audience (All Down The Line twice), that was copied on Brown Sugar White Snow  (AS-TS) cdr and on another single cdr called Gruga Halle Essen 73 (missing All Down The Line) as well as part of the 3 cdrs Essen Three Days (Rockin Rott). This is a great sounding concert despite being in mono and unfortunately. A couple of years ago a 2 cd set called Brown Sugar and White Snow   (Brown Sugar White Snow DS1-2) came out offering the same 10 tracks supplemented by other 1973 live songs and on the second disc Vienna 73. This is the same old stuff with   no audible improvement and the same songs hat were available before (missing Dancing With Mr.D, Rip This Joint, Jumping Jack Flash and Street Fighting Man) the only possible justification for this release being that it was never printed before by this label. This is not the case of Stuttgart 70 concert though, which was previously released as Stuttgart 1970 (VGP 187) a mono recording and as part of Germany 1970 (DAC 070)   together with Cologne 70 which was released in 2007; both these recordings did miss the intro, though and had Street Fighting Man fading out. Lately another source was discovered presenting a recording that had an intro 7 seconds long, the outro 25 seconds long and the recording that was also outstanding, released on Stuttgart 1970 (no label) cd.. This howevere seems to be that same source, really an improved version with Jagger s vocals and guitars clear as ever and one of the best 1970 recordings so far and very few distortions on mid frequencies that can be heard on occasion. This version is 21 seconds longer than the recent release although there is no introduction, proving evidence it comes from a master recording as outlined on the back cover. About packaging frankly it is beginning to be boring to have many cds with the same title and front cover, it seems they are running out of ideas in the land of the rising sun.
