Detroit 1969 footage from Tubeworks
Posted by: Cristiano Radtke ()

From the description on this video:

"Venue: Olympia Stadium, Detroit, MI Date: November 24th, 1969 Format: 1/2 Open Reel Videotape, BW, sync sound 0:00? Stray Cat Blues 3:50? Little Queenie This show has always been talked about with a certain degree of reverence, both for the performance quality ("We never really got it on until Detroit" etc) and for the long rumoured video footage, aired sometime in December of 1969 or early 1970 by Detroit Tubeworks, a local access station run by staff from Detroit radio station WABX. According to rumour, three songs were aired - Stray Cat Blues, Little Queenie, and Sympathy for the Devil. So far I've only managed to find the first two through different sources - Stray Cat seems to be a direct transfer of the original tape, with some messy editing to hide a watermark, whereas Little Queenie is a fairly rough off-air recording from the original broadcast. I replaced the audio for Little Queenie with the circulating audience recording, as the original audio had pitch problems from the poor video tracking. WABX anchor Dan Carlisle is featured at the end of the video. Please don't ask if I have more of this - if I did I'd post it! I do know that Reelin' In the Years Productions has stated that they own the original 41 minute 1/2" videotape, but chances are they'll never release it, unfortunately."

Thank you! Still enjoy anything like this no matter how poor the video and audio. Loved the shot of the people to the right of the stage near the end who were really getting into it. Crowds shots in general fascinate me from the 69 tour. Its such a contrast to a few years earlier where it was mostly screaming teenagers. You can sense the huge shift that was occurring with live events and what people wanted/expected. Right I'm off to listen to Ya Ya's now...

That's my video/youtube channel - I did get the Stray Cat part from Midimannz's '69 DVD project a while back, and thought I'd put it up with the Little Queenie footage. I can post the clips for download here if anyone wants them.

Now I may be mistaken, but isn't this material available since at least the early 1980's? Missing is Sympathy, which was reportedly also broadcasted.

you and other members have mentioned this many times, but to my knowledge no one's turned up Sympathy yet, at least not online/digitally.

Maybe it is, but there's always those who haven't seen this one yet. On my behalf I can say I haven't seen the first half of this video until now (i.e. Stray Cat Blues).

The first one showcases the lean, mean Mick Taylor licks
and the second is the KR lurch and raunch show.

And each perfectly complements the other with their different rhythm styles.

So much mutual respect, space and grace.
The icing on the cake would be Sympathy which showcases theme in both departments.

But what is great about the audio too is that you can really hear Bill's essential contribution to the overall sound.

Greatest Rock and Roll Band in da World indeed.

While I wasn't at the Olympia show, the video certainly brought back great memories of what went down on that 69 tour which remains my favorite. It was all so fresh and exciting given the fact they had not played for a few years, Brian had passed, and tracks from LIB were being presented prior to the album being released. I still marvel at how incredible it was that the Stones had this feel for covering Chuck Berry songs. No other band has come close IMO. Queenie and Carol were superb on that tour. A full video concert release with quality sound would be the Grail. As it stands we only have snippets.

Thanks Cristiano!

And Jagger more or less stood at the mic and sang. It was glorious.

So right about Wyman too, the unsung half of the riddim machine.
