The Nicky Hopkins Tapes

I haven't seen much discussion about these for several years.

Nicky Hopkins Tapes

Fantastic listening if you haven't checked them out before.

Great extra (or louder mixed?) guitar in places - RTJ being a great example.

Does anyone know how these came into the public domain?

I think there are more guitars which didn’t make it on the final versions. The untitled instrumental may be an embryonic version of one of the ballads on It's Only Rock'n Roll.

It's been discussed here before, but definitely deserves more attention.

Yeah, that instrumental definitely feels like Wild Horses, Next Goodbye, Winter, Plundered My Soul and Watching the River Flow. smiling smiley

"super quality"? I think this is one of the worst sounding studio soundboards available. But great to have.

Yes, well I apologize, as not meant to mis-lead fans; I'm not an audiophine and don't didn't mean really to leave a relative audio critique of a boot,,,
and as mentioned, haven't even yet listened in phones; just a functional,
but pretty low-end, all things considered, functional blue-tooth type speakers.

but for me, the 'mix' itself; well, it was very exciting; i could hear Everything, every player; and such was the heat and intensity of the performance, and to my ears, the crunch and crispness and passion....
well, it might not be a 'production' mix.,..
and really; i will try to listen to more accurate speakers or in pretty reasonable phones soon...
but for me, it really slammed, those alternate track slides were thrilling and upfront very present; yet i could hear everybody else.

sometimes it seems the horns in harmony were the lead instruments, kinda,
tho everything else seems to be played with such intesity;
so i sort of meant it in the sense of impact and it had on me,
and really; i thought the way those rhythm guitars and everything...

well what is this anyway?
do you know it's history. i mean it seems like a pretty close-to-the-bone
'mix' tape, to even emerge like this, I don't know mixed it or how it became
available, or when...
but it sounds friggin majorly great and took my head right off and it is super great and packs a huge wallop, doncha think?

anway;
