The Godfatherecords label has released this smart compilation of radio broadcasts spanning 1964 – 1967 with several radio ads in between to provide the listener with an extended feel for a period piece.

The first 8 tracks from the 7-28-66 Hawaii performance represent an upgrade over the STARLIFE release of the same show (HRCD 52030). The volume gain is significant on the former though there is more detail discernible on the latter. The performance of “Satisfaction” in this set is extended past the 5 minute mark with an extended jam and Jagger’s tour de force.

The 2-24-66 Melbourne tracks are all enjoyable with quite decent sound quality. The Stones sound energetic, the fans are loud and the music is fast + catchy with steady mad rhythms from Watts.

The remaining 3 FM radio broadcasts are sonically superior in every respect to the above material. What I find particularly striking is how much different of a band the Stones were back then. The sheer pace of some of their performances is incredible. Jagger’s voice is the most recognizable element throughout. The 4-11-67 Paris show featured a brisk version of “Under My Thumb” that stands out.

Godfatherecords has packed in 77:22 minutes of noteworthy blended-in performances with their standard tri-fold packaging and a smart insert of the Stones 1966 Tour Dates. This release comes recommended from the label that continues to please!

  1. Good find DLee…This review is one in which I chose not to do a track by track analysis and somehow, in the course of review, overlooked the omission of “Get Off Of My Cloud” and the one off track listings you mentioned. Glad you enjoy it, however.

  2. This is quite an enjoyable release by Godfather, but there’s actually a significant error in the track listing. That is, Track 21, “Get off of My Cloud”, is completely missing, and there’s a 20-second intro track before the 2nd “The Last Time” (Track 9; in Melbourne). So Tracks 9-21 are numbered incorrectly, being off by one (all of ’em shifted). Also, Track 23, “Everybody Needs Somebody to Love” is apparently just a brief incomplete segment, and the start of the last “Paint it Black” is missing, as is the start of “Under My Thumb”, although not as badly (not as much missing, apparently), & also the start of the final track, “Let’s Spend the Night Together”. Still, yet another great/excellent release by Godfatherecords.

  3. A excellent compilation of Stones material presented in beautiful packaging with insert.
