First of all: Many thanks for posting this CD, I was looking for it in another post!
Tracks 1-8 are a copy of the LP Keep Your Motor Runnin'
Tracks 9-12 are a copy of side 3 of the 4 LP set "Plug In Flush Out" (1SB72).
(C1) Bitch (1972-07-20)
(C2) Midnight Rambler (1972-06-24-1)
(C3) Love In Vain (1972-07-21-2)
The other tracks are not on the original CD, don't know from which '69 show they are, maybe Detroit?
by the way... the Keep Your Motor Running tracks from the LP run too fast and should be slowed down by ca. 2.5 %
Which recording is the "master that was leaked to radio"?

I had a boot called Unreleased Decca Live Album that had that running list. At one point Mick mentions corn flakes and the breakfast show which I imagine is from a late morning show in Philly. Who knows if that really was the planned album? I've read that like Ya-Yss the '72 was suppposed to be a double album with one side for Wonder songs but publishing rights issues of his earlier songs killed that idea.
Mid-October 1972: Mick Jagger, Charlie Watts and Bill Wyman spend time in London, performing
overdubs on recordings of the 1972 North American Tour, for a never-released live album.
Keith Richards (1973): A live 1972 album nixed
Another reason for us not doing old songs (onstage) is that Decca have stopped us from releasing new live versions of material recorded on their label. A whole live album with Stevie Wonder on it recorded on the American tour has been scrapped because they've ballsed that up. They've got those songs for six years or something. I mean, if we're recording a live show with old numbers on it, we just can't put the motherfvcker out in the first place because recordings of those songs belong to them until 1976 or whatever.
I remember one that started with "All Down The Line" which was weird.
Get Your Motor Running has the overdubs and I think was the planned album I believe. What's strange is "You Can't Always..." is mono. I don't understand that.
Anybody got any ideas on that?
They started the broadcast with two slow numbers?
Well, the original Keep Your Motor Running vinyl bootleg from the early 80's (1983?) has the following running order:
A1 All Down The Line
A3 Sweet Virginia
A4 Tumbling Dice
B1 Bye Bye Johnny
B2 Rip This Joint
B3 Gimme Shelter
B4 You Can't Always Get What You Want
Makes a bit more sense keeping in mind that it was going to be a single album (by omitting Brown Sugar, Happy, Uptight/Satisfaction).
As this vinyl bootleg contains overdubbed tracks, it was obviously not dubbed from the WMMS broadcast as there's no way that WMMS could have overdubbed tracks within a couple of weeks after the tour in August, when any overdub sessions supposedly did not happen before October.
It's more likely that the WMMS broadcast was a mere compilation of tracks that were chosen for further work, hence the random running order that has nothing to do with a finalised LP tracklist.
Therefore, Nico's entry should better read:
"Broadcast of a compilation of tracks chosen for the unreleased 1972 tour live-album" instead of misleading into thinking that the broadcast was in fact the finalised album.
Here is the version we released
Sorry to go all collector-completist on the thread but are the tracks on Keep Your Motor Running the same as those on Very Ancient, Thank You Kindly?
Very Ancient has Happy missing, and KYMR is better quality.
My optimized version (better sound & smoother transitions):
Originally taken from CD "Very Ancient, Thank You Kindly° (Scorpio SCO-30), except YCAGWYW from mono vinyl LP "Keep Your Motor Runnin'"
01 Brown Sugar (Philadelphia 20 July 72)
02 Bitch (Philadelphia 20 July 72)
03 Gimme Shelter (Philadelphia 20 July 72)
04 Happy (Fort Worth 24 June 72 1st show)
05 Tumbling Dice (Philadelphia 20 July 72)
06 Sweet Virginia (Philadelphia 21 July 72 1st show)
07 You Can't Always Get What You Want (Houston 25 June 72 1st show)
08 All Down The Line (Houston 25 June 72 1st show)
09 Bye Bye Johnny (Philadelphia 20 July 72)(probably)
10 Rip This Joint (Fort Worth 24 June 72 1st show)
11 Uptight/Satisfaction (Philadelphia 20 July 72)(probably)
PS. My first rougher attempt ended on VGP-243 Keep Your Motor Running
I had a boot called Unreleased Decca Live Album that had that running list. Who knows if that really was the planned album?
A standard bootlegged soundboard of a 1972 show wouldn't lead off with YCAGWYW and deliberately omit songs that were on YA-YA'S. Whether it was the final version of the album before it was scrapped, I couldn't say definitively, but it's a lineup they were planning for their sides of the LP.
As for the publishing rights scrapping the project, it was ABKCO not Motown that was the problem.
I haven't played it in a while (somewhere in a pile of CDs), but the track listing was something like:
1. Brown Sugar
3. Gimme Shelter
5. Tumbling Dice
6. Sweet Virginia
7. You Can't Always Get What You Want
8. All Down the Line
9. Bye Bye Johnny
10. Rip This Joint
11. Uptight / (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction
and left out other tracks that had previously appeared on Ya Yas like Jack Flash, Love In Vain, Street Fighting Man, etc. as not to duplicate. Also, from what I remember (someone can certainly tell me if I'm inaccurate), I think there were overdubs on some of these tracks which leads me to believe that this may have been intended for commercial release.
Thanks a lot for sharing this gem exilestones.
1969 tracks are from Detroit as wiredallnight presumed.
@wiredallnight: thanks for identifying tracks 9-11.
