REVIEW:

This new release from Japan presents the Stones Pittsburgh 72 concert in soundboard quality and it can surely be called an upgrade; this show was released at firsat on tape but had an atrocious sound quality, then on Sweet s Virginia s Saturday Night Smelter Blues (Esky Product Esky 003) came a combination of audience (tracks 1-11) and soundboard (tracks 12-17). On compact it was released

as An American Affair (VGP 083) that had Sweet Virginia coming from Ft.Worth 1972 2nd concert, replaced with the original version on The Royal Dragon (VGP 083) the only case of a reissue from VGP with different title and cover, but porting the same catalogue number. Then it came out as Plane Sex On The Way to Pittsburgh (Montserrat BRCD 1911) where Street Fighting Man was sourced from Sydney 27 February 73 and as Work Sucks Let s Go On Tour Vol.4   (A RS Boot Tree); later we got Pittsburgh 72 (Cellar Dweller 070719170). All these titles had a complete set but with Street Fighting Man fading out. All Down The Line from this show can be found on Washington 1972 (IMP CD 043-44) and the band s introduction can be found on Very Ancient, Thanks You Kindly (Scorpio 30). This recording has always been suffering from hiss and been pretty rough at the beginning for a couple of minutes when some engineer seems to be adjusting knobs but this version is better than before; regardless of a bit of distortion in the first few seconds of Brown Sugar and no audible hiss; each guitar is given its channel so it is easy to distinguish and follow Richards and Taylor on each song. The concert followed the famous Philadelphia three shows in two days and portrays the same energy and committed playing from all musicians involved. Just before Love In Vain Jagger jokes: It s very nice to be back in Pittsburgh, we haven t been here since 1956! This is a typical 72 US Tour concert with great solos from Taylor (introduced as The Lady with the Lipstick On) especially on Love In Vain and a rowdy Midnight Rambler that is driven by Richards frantic guitar work and embellished by Nicky Hopkins piano that at times gets its way upfront. Street Fighting Man unfortunately fades out here as well after 1.24 minutes.
