REVIEW:

This release presents again the famous Hyde Park 69 concert, a concert that is still one of the main topics amongst Stones collectors. Let s remember which bootlegs have been released so far: on tape a recording appeared called An Afternoon with the Devil, then Stones in the Park and He Is Not Dead (All Sold Out); on vinyl in 1974 as Hyde Park July 69 (Contraband Cheese Rec.

Lately on Brian Come Back You Bastard (DAC 164) we again got the WLIR 79 recording and stereo songs from the blu ray/DVD releases.

Disc One presents what Holland Radio Veronica broadcasted on July 15 th 1969 hosted by Lex Harding, this being most of the show that was recorded with a portable Sony recorder, including an interesting introduction speech by an MC which informs the audience on the events that will happen. Then we get all Jagger reading the Adonais poem by Shelley and I m Yours And I m Hers that starts with some distorted sound, soon corrected by the taper. Sound quality is hard to judge, Jagger s vocals re always upfront and clear, while the guitar and drums seem way in the back, Wyman s bass widely audible, but not distorted. It is interesting to hear in between songs Jagger comments, lost in all other previous recordings of this concert.

After Midnight Rambler there are3 alternate sources tracks of Adonais, Midnight Rambler and Love In Vain, where Wyman s bass is less conspicuous.        

Disc Two of this set presents the WLIR 1979 radio show that happened on the 10th anniversary of Brian Jones death allegedly on July 5 th 1979 where Jo Bergman speaks about the facts that happened before the concert. This was just released on Brian Come Back You Bastard (DAC 164) but is here present with different songs order and in better sound coming from a lower generation source.

Packaging is not that inspirational offering a brown picture of Jagger on front cover which reminds the front cover of the vinyl boot of the same name by Contraband Records, which was red instead.
