REVIEW:

Vinyl Radio Shows featuring concert or broadcasted recordings came into effect in England before the Second World War for the sole purpose of giving local versions of the BBC the chance to broadcast the shows at different times, as well as to the Commonwealth countries; in the States they were used in the 60s, but then in the 70s the format switched to reel to reel tapes   in order to allow the many FM radios to get promptly the show to broadcast; at the end of that decade however they switched back to vinyl too. In the seventies on of the most sought after show by collectors has certainly been the King Biscuit Flower Hour that presented original recordings taped in agreement with the bands. As for the Stones the early seventies stuff has been the subject of many broadcasts that for the first time featured the live Stones from 73 playing in Brussells and London, from which many bootlegs originated, since no live album was released from that tour. After many years of   copies of copies a few weeks ago three original reel to reel analogue tapes recorded by the known Joe Maloney taper   have been uploaded on a famous torrent site and they soon come out in the underground section. These 3 shows were aired from September 1974 through June 1975 and feature in two of them also short interviews with Watts and Jagger, which embellish these sets. The forst two recordings are in mono and on the first one during the final KBFH outro it is possible to hear in the background the concert s outro music and the announcer s farewell message. The last record show is in stereo and has been the base for many bootlegs over the years. These recordings have been rush released in Japan as well as in Europe on a no label set titled KBFH Broadcast Archive Master. From the musical standpoint these tracks have been released many a times on the dozens of Nasty Music/Songs releases over the years and serve the purpose to enlighten the more casual listener on what the Stones were in 1973. To a prolonged listening it is clear that this album set has gathered its best shape ever, the sound has an amazing punch and this is totally due to Bill Wyman s rocking bass that stands upfront in this recording and not flattened at the back like in so many other releases of the famous KBFH tracks which were mixed by Mick Jagger and Phil Ramone at A&R Recording, New York City, earlier in September 1974. The bass lines are not too prominent but are still there,   punctuating the melodic tunes and enhancing the rocking ones. About packaging the front cover may look classical but is certainly pretty dull, the 3 disc set have been stored on a slim 3 cds jewel case which dictates the back cover to have a circular hole in the middle to allow the third disc to be placed there.
