POST: 25 &26 April 1989 - The Rolling Stones In The AIR - STEEL WHEELS Sessions - FP 138 (reworked audio version) revised covers
Posted by: StonyRoad ()
Date: February 2, 2024 20:00

Three DAYS in MontserraT
Writing and recording sessions for STEEL WHEELS
Montserrat Air Studios
25. - 27. April 1989
FP 138
This project started when Imthemastah posted the video of this and when BlueTurns2Grey proposed me to do a new collaborative work on it.
My idea is to do a complete version from the audio of this great testimony, deleting the silence and deteriorated parts (it’s this version you will find here) and a second version posted separately with only the musical parts that I will combine with some other newly circulating outtakes (these you will find in FP 139).
A big thank you to Imthemastah who shared his video, to ExileStones who provided the front cover and to my two accomplices nzb and BlueTurns2Grey for their help, advice and inspiration.
……………………
Producers: Chris Kimsey & The Glimmer Twins.
Sound engineer: Christopher Marc Potter
Additional musician: Matt Clifford (keyb)
……………………
The duration corresponds to the timing of the original video.
As usual the tracks are edited, declicked, treated against distortion, treated against the rumble (smoothly so the music wouldn't get altered), the silents or altered parts are deleted and the segments reconnected (when it was possible) and I cleaned it up by deleting lots of noises (all ‘by hands’) in particular in the songs.

CD1:
Part I: 'dinner at Montserrat’
01 - during the dinner: lots of segments reconnected with fade ins/outs (0.00.00 to 0.30.17) and banter over Continental Drift with RW adding some percussion with his cigarette box!
02 - banter ‘after the dinner’: KR, RW, Jo & Patti talking (0.30.17 - 0.33.12)
“So now we make a record or a movie? … or both?”

03 - banter “Welcome to another fabulous session” (0.34.40 – 0.36.38)

Because the dates from the sessions are now better identified I did new covers and text.
The initial post is now updated with the new covers.

but if you already download the volume then you can uploaded only the new text and covers here:
