The tour may have finished but the bootlegs keep rolling in – The Stones are still top of the list in many ways. .
From the IEMs and top quality audience recordings that started to trickle in from these gigs there are a few that have received the prestige of being pressed on to silvers – From Empress Valley’s collection, the inevitable No Label disks and Crystal Cat’s solo outing, we’ve done very, very well from the Sixty tour indeed. Regards the EV releases, two of these are what a new label have put out again in a four CD box format twinning them both with a multi angle DVDR from the same Lyon show that this first IEM recording has come from.
For the shows contained in the set, Steve1958 and I previously reviewed them here (Sweet Summer Sun) and here (Salut Les Gones) – rather than writing them out again, you can use the links. Thankfully the capability to EAC CDs is easier than cutting the tape of a vinyl boot to another vinyl record – Rest assured, they both sound the same as previous. The bonus tracks from ’Salut ..’ Have this time made their way on to the end of the London show instead
We’ve come a long way with the videos of course – Rather strangely, it seems that the Stones themselves are past the point of not allowing camera shots to be captured. Of course it’s going to be nigh-on impossible to police this effort so, in essence, why bother? This multi-shot film has footage from the pit by the stage to the less flattering shots from the gods. With stadia this large, the band so small, the shots that feature the bands set out up from the rafters look a little silly, though the shots that feature the full stage lift the view a little – It’s the floor shots that work the best – lingering shots of the band, the backing singers, are beautiful. Marvel as Jagger skips down the lengthy tongue of the extension stage, Keith and Ronnie both take turns to stroll down to eye-ball the audience. There is a little news footage mixed in and a couple of stills which kind of break the atmosphere a little but they are very fleeting and don’t take down the full feel of the concert itself.
This footage is mixed with the audio that’s on the CD so sounds very, very good indeed – Indeed, as I’ve mentioned before, it sounds quite different through my TV than it does my headphones – Any intensity from a flubbed chord or peak in Jagger’s vocals are much less affronted.
The packaging for the set is proud, brashy and fits right in with the theme for the Sixty tour. Packaged in a Fatboy jewel case, limited to 300 and individually numbered by virtue of the sticker that’s affixed to the front. The pressed disks are very handsomely silkscreened, the DVDR a little fuzzy but that’s not really an issue.
