Memo From Tina Turner
There's Bobby, Jim Price and Nicky Hopkins.
I love the sound of those @#$%& Ampegs. The Stones at their peak imo.
It is interesting that on the 50 and Counting Shows he played the first solo which he didn’t on the 1972 tourQuote
Four Stone Walls
Jamming, not hamming.
And it gives a lie to all the 'Mick Taylor only played lead and spors' stuff.
He was holding down a very steady rhythm throughout most of rambler.
And he's damn good at it an d totally focused.
And on Bitch of course, but he's hardly audible - someone else is playing very loud lead all the way through! It 's a total disgrace.
I don't know what's going on with this footage, but I synced up the available video with the soundboard source last year and posted it in the b/s/t section:
This version looks like someone cropped the original video and added some pretty bad colour filters, and it doesn't look like the video/audio is in proper sync, especially in Midnight Rambler. My version is in perfect sync, and includes two brief clips of Tumbling Dice and Gimme Shelter.
As for the provenance of the video footage itself, it is from the 07/22/72 Pittsburgh show. I'm not sure if it was shot for screen projection, but it's not Super8/8mm film, it's 1/2 open-reel video tape (still heavy as hell to lug to a concert though, haha).
