Let s start
with this release title which listed on the back spine is Hound Dog, but
according to front cover
could be seen
as Live At Mid-South Coliseum 1978.
Memphis 78 show was another concert recorded by Bob Clearmountain for KBFH that
broadcasted some songs from it on 16 May 1979. The band s stop at Memphis has always been
subject of many a bootleg appearance because of the fact they played homage to
Presley through their live rendition of

which featured 2 songs from Memphis and
later Memphis, Tennessee Girls
(SODD 131), then two more tracks came on a
cdr called Radio Broadcasts 1978 (
) and thanks to another Wolfgang s Vault
broadcast most of the songs were released on Home Of The King (V.Masters). Memphis recordings were
part also of the WLR box Tour 1978 (WLR 2129). In all of these recordings four
songs have always been missing Star Star, Sweet Little Sixteen , Faraway Eyes and
Lies replaced by audience versions. The only complete version of this concert,
an audience recording, came out as cdr on Make some Girl in Memphis (Rockin Rott). This release in
presents another audience source in
a quite good shape, despite some tape deterioration clearly audible on the right channel during Just My Imagination. The impression is that the faulty channel was replaced before this track by a replica of the left channel slightly delayed in order to create he stereo effect and compensate for what was missing.
The 78 US Tour was undoubtedly a return to the
origin for the band that came quite unstrapped to the stage with the sole
support of Stu and Ian McLagan on piano and keyboards but lots of energy that
can be felt from the first moments into Let It Rock; the performance is a great
one and has been well captured on disc so this release jumps on the wagon of
the 78 live Stones.
This set ends with the bonus of Tumbling Dice
from Detroit 78, in the original radio
show Jagger s words when he was complaing about being too dark on stage were not broadcasted, here are presented in full.
