Torrent #414391 Rolling Stones - 1972-07-26, New York City - revised reseed, 40th anniversary (aud. + SB mix)
Revised (pitch corrected) reseed for the 40th anniversary of the show.
This is my attempt at improving one of the most famous Rolling Stones bootlegs of all time, TMOQ's "Welcome to New York." Originally released in 1973 on LP, it had great stereo soundboard sound quality of the last show of the Stones' '72 US tour on Mick Jagger's 29th birthday, and a great cover drawn by William Stout. Since then, it has been re-released many times on LP and CD, in varying quality. I tried to use the best available sources for my version. For further info, see [www.rollingstonesnet.com
] and [www.rollingstonesnet.com
] (scroll way down to VGP-312).
Tracks 1-6 are from a second generation audience recording. Quality is decent for '72; I've heard better and worse. I discovered this tape in 1992, on a Rolling Stones mailing list. The person I got it from got from a friend who was the taper. He told me his friend called Madison Square Garden before the show and asked if it was ok to bring a tape recorder, and they said it was. Of course during the show someone noticed him taping and he had to stop, but somehow he managed to keep what he had recorded to that point. This is all there is. These tracks were transferred to PC in 2001 using a Nakamichi BX-300 tape deck with pitch control and a Turtle Beach Santa Cruz sound card. They have since been transferred back and forth between PC and CDR several times, always using EAC. For 2010, I have slowed the pitch 2% compared to the 2007 edition. This sounds more correct to my ears, and matches DAC-065 "Nasty Songs," which is a commercial bootleg of my 2007 torrent.
Tracks 7-15 are from LP. Legend has it that the soundboard tape was stolen from the person recording the show for the Stones. TMOQ's Stones tapes don't circulate, so original vinyl is the best source. I used a red vinyl original with RS-546 REI matrix, played on a Music Hall MMF-7 turntable with an Ortofon OM-20 cartridge, through an Adcom GFP-565 preamp, then into an M-Audio Audiophile 2496 sound card. The transfer was originally done in 2006 and LP surface noise was reduced using Cool Edit Pro 2.1. I also fixed the volume drop at the end of "Midnight Rambler" as much as possible, and rearranged the tracks back to their original running order; TMOQ took it upon themselves to resequence them. For 2007, I have slightly improved the editing and indexing. For 2010, I have slowed the pitch 3% compared to the 2007 edition. This sounds more correct to my ears, and matches DAC-065 "Nasty Songs," which is a commercial bootleg of my 2007 torrent.
Artwork is based on Vinyl Gang's "Welcome to New York" CD, which lifts its art from the original TMOQ LP. Cue sheet is included for playing or burning with CD text.
Please note that the sound on tracks 7-15 is far superior to the best known (as of 2007) CD release which is TSP's CD (and LP) from 1989. That release, also made from an original TMOQ LP, suffers from excessive NoNoise. Yes, it reduces the hiss, but it also sucks all the life out of the music. I did not add on the last few songs from the show (Street Fighting Man, Happy Birthday Mick, and Uptight/Satisfaction) as they are only on a poor quality source which I no longer have.
Presented in in FLAC 1.2.1. Includes cue sheet. First uploaded to TC Feb 2007, and to HC and Dime July 2007, by watchit. Pitch revised Sep 2010; this version uploaded to Dime July 26, 2012 for the 40th anniversary of the concert.
