Again, it was only a matter of time .. The latest greatest leak from the Stones vault (Apparently related to the legendary OBR label), the ‘Birds Vault’ popped up after a limited release on a very expensive private press LP, after a short discussion with regards to it being liberated from the tapes, it appeared as a rip from the vinyl.
Since the release it has been speed corrected, shortened (Some of this work is in your collection already) and torrented widely, this is your first chance to own it on silver disk.

This two CD set could be worth the purchase if it features the speed corrected versions of these tracks but as desirable as the 2002 Studio sessions. It’s still only September – Dare we wish for another momentous release before the end of the year?
