REVIEW:

This release from WLR (though namely from Retrospective Records) presents the second part of the Stones 2002 Licks North American Tour focusing on the arena and stadium shows that happened in major cities, these recordings are remarkable because of the great variety of songs played.

The first concert here is the one from Cleveland, released on a bunch of cdr called Sweet Cleveland, At the Rockers Point, Gund Arena, Cleveland, Cleveland 2002,   One for the Ages, A Night in Cleveland, Lickin the Gund and Licking Cleveland. In Japan came out Mick Shocks Cleveland Rocks (Phoenix Rec. D356527) and then this concert was part of More Hot Licks (VGP 333) 6 discs set and later released in Europe as Don t Stop (RSCL 1/2). On this recording there are some skipping problems on Disc Two.

 

The concert in Columbus was released on   cdr as No Expectations for Columbus, Blues for Columbus, Licks Columbus Arena (Midnight Dreamer), If you can’t rock me, Columbus can (Phoenix Rec. D3556507), Nationwide Arena Columbus Oct.20, 2002, With the Love Train to the Nationwide Arena, Best Seat of the House, Nineteen years old, Love train through Ohio, Start me up and on silver as part of More Hot Licks (VGP 333). The sound of this recording is excellent, however Disc Three does not starts by itself, you will need to fast forward some seconds in order for the disc to start playing.

The Miami second show came out on cdr as Four Monkey Man in Miami, Miami Night 2002 Box, Licks Miami Arena (M.Dreamer), American Airlines Arena, American Airlines Oct.23, 2002, This is no Fast Food it s the Stones, Pal, So Deep and Wide (Pignose PGN 043),   South Beach Putas (Phoenix Rec.D356509), No Fast Food Restaurant, Smilin Boys in Miami, Miami Licks, Miami Rocks and on silver on Hot Licks (VGP 326). This is a good recording, setlist presents three or four new songs, however for some reason Midnight Rambler was not played in Florida, this is why Disc Six is so short. The version of Brown Sugar were has been called the only live one with correct pace in years.

 

In Atlanta the band played a nice show that came out on cdr as Atlanta Midnight Ramblers, Chuck s Homecoming, See if the dog comes back wet (Phoenix rec. D356510), Atlanta (Fan for Fan Productions), Turner Field Atlanta Oct. 26, 2002, The Stones Age, Licks Atlanta Stadium 2002 (M.Dreamer C021216B), Red Lady and Blue Corners, Atlanta Soundcheck, Georgia On My Mind, Atlanta Rocks   and again on silver on Hot Licks (VGP 326), while Angie can be found in soundboard quality on Dirty Licks (VGP 347) and on Get Licked From the Mixing Desk (Pignose PIG 015); Get Licked Around the World (Exile Rec. 039), Ultra Rare Lips (Crystal Cat 687), Don t Look Back Baby (Pignose PIG 008), Rare Licks (no label) and Licks 2002 USA/Canada Tour Theatre Shows (WLR R204) . Here we have a great recording of a concert that has all the warhorses together( except   for Miss You), special mention to a great version of Angie, played with two acoustic guitars. Interesting is also Gimme Shelter which starts with just the backup singers and those players that didn t accompany the band on the small stage.

 

The San Francisco second show came out as Sympathy for San Francisco, San Francisco Tapes 2002 Box, Even Better Tonight, Sloppy Seconds (Phoenix Rec. D356512), Pacific Bell Park 2002, Bell Park II and on silver on Heart of Stone (VGP 332) and More Licks (no label). This is an excellent performance very well recorded, despite a microphone   that was not protected from the wind, with Sheryl Crow on Wild Horses. Further skipping issues at the beginning of Disc Ten.

Oakland was released on The Whip Comes to Oakland, San Francisco Tapes 2002 Box, Fellatio Blues (Phoenix rec. D356513), Oakland, Oakland Arena Nov.12, 2002, Oakland Nov. 12 2002, Sweet Oakland, Live in 2002, Hearts of Stone (Sister Morphine),   Bag a Heart of Stone, Lick This Oakland, Don t Stop Just Lick Me, Oakland Licks, The Heart of Stones and on silver on Heart Of Stone (VGP 332) and Liver in 2002 (Lick 006CD) .Thru and Thru can be found in soundboard quality on Dirty Licks (VGP 347), Get Licked from the Mixing Desk (Pignose Pig 015), Get Licked Around the World (Exile Rec. 039), Ultra Rare Lips (Crystal Cat 687), Rare Licks (RS4) and Wild Horses on More Licks (RS 5). Yet another brilliant performance well recorded, here we have a great setlist with Heart Of Stone and Frankie Gavin as a guest on fiddle on Sweet Virginia and Sheryl Crow, this time on Honky Tonk Women.

 

The show in San Antonio, one of the few Stones concerts available from that city, came out on cdr on Stones for San Antonio, A Spliff and a Shot of Bourbon (Phoenix Rec. D356526), San Antonio Nov.23, 2002, Howdy San Antonio, Between Lubbock & Laredo, Texas Bitch, Back to Sticky Fingers, San Antonio on a Hot and Dusty Night 2002, Live in Texas 2002 (no label). This is yet another good recording of quite a long concert.

 

Las Vegas concert was the last of the tour, recording   from it came out as Last Night in Vegas, A Grand of Time (Phoenix Rec. D356524), Fever in the Funkhouse, MGM Grand Las Vegas, On The Cigarette Ronnie Wood, Between Lubbock & Laredo, Lucky Licks, Last Night in 2002 and on silver Viva Las Vegas Vol.3 (VGP 327), Lucky Licks (no label), Dead Flowers can be found on So Deep and Wide (Pignose PGN 043), Dead Flowers is found on Dirty Licks (VGP 347), Get Licked From the Mixing Desk vol.2 (Pignose PGN 052) ), Get Licked Around the World (Exile Rec. 039), Ultra Rare Lips (Crystal Cat 687). This is another great recording which shows a very powerful performance with rarely played Neighbours in the setlist.

Disc Seventeen collects tracks from various shows, claiming on booklet: Bonus Tracks not coming from Theatre Shows (however Tracks 7 and 12 are from theatre shows) which is ok for rarely played songs, but the reason why tracks like Jumping Jack Flash, Street Fighting Man, Don t Stop and Can t You Hear Me Knocking have been included is due to the fact that they are recorded in soundboard quality.

In short this is a great sounding collection of recordings that presents tracks from the 2002 USA (nothing from Canada) that serves as supplement to the previously released box that covered the Theatre Shows.
