I've just found this vinyl by chance today at the local Tower records. I don't know if it's pressed from digital or from the analog tapes, but it sounds really good. Much better than the original CD anyway. I find this new vinyl quite bass heavy so it's possible the sound was tweaked somehow... but it doesn't sound like the over-remastered mess that is the TIC reissue.

Mick Jagger’s solo albums to be reissued on half-speed mastered vinyl (from superdeluxeedition.com) Interesting that Wandering Spirit is reissued on a double LP as its 14 tracks were stacked on a single LP on the first release.

The thing with ABB is it's their last studio album of original material. So even if it's too long, doesn't sound good and has a lot of uninspired songs or lyrics, it remains (at least until now) their last album. So when I want to listen to later days Stones I plug into ABB. And actually the raw energy compensates for a lot of not so good songs.

QuoteMathijs QuoteDandelionPowderman Quotekowalski I was reading this 10 years old article and was wondering if Mick Taylor and the Stones camp got around some agreement about his royalties from the 5 albums he worked on. Some say he accepted a lump sum of money in 81/82 when they changed record company, and some say he didn't get anything. Hard to tell what really happened... Corre

It doesn't sound so different from what he's doing with Promise of the real. Not sure I would identify the song as a NY & Crazy Horse song on first listen if it wasn't labelled as it.

I compared Bridges to Bremen to San José. I would say B2Br has a narrower mix and a more compressed dynamic range. I think that's the reason why I was hearing an almost mono sound. Also the guitars on B2Br are mixed more upfront but on San Jose the mix being more open you can hear quite clearly each instrument. Well glad to have both anyway as both releases feature excellent concerts.

I've been listening to this concert on vinyl quite a lot. I think I prefer it to the San Jose release for the energy and the choice of songs. To me it sounds almost like a mono recording. Is it the way it's mixed or is it actually a mono recording ?

QuoteGivenToFly15 QuotekowalskiThat's exactly what's happening with recorded music : even if they don't have the masters anymore, record companies can still issue CD's (or digital download) from copies of copies.

A quick review of the regular 3-LP set (European pressing). - Packaging : overall, good quality (thickness, printing). I like the cover art and band members photos have a nice selection. However having no booklet of any sort makes it feel quite cheap and minimalistic... It's worth mentioning it comes with a download card. - the vinyl are quiet (no pops) and play perfectly.

QuoteSomeGuy This loudness war thingy is indeed worrisome. It reminds me of the period around 1980 when Bob Clearmountain was associated with making single mixes for car stereos. The so-called "loudness war" is trending since the mid-nineties. One of the first band to have a CD louder than everyone else was Oasis with Morning Glory back in 1995.

Quoteironbelly QuoteHMS Out Of Control sounds different on HONK to my ears. Haven´t heard the original studio version in a long time, but isn´t there a trumpet that is missing on HONK? The Honk-version also seems to sound less clean and slick than the original... it also seems to rock harder. Have to compare, but I think there is some different mixing done, at least for some parts of the song...

Out of Control on Honk is the regular album version, ie the same one as on Bridges to Babylon. Honk version is the 2009 remaster and because of this features a more upfront bass. The Saber Mix (full length version is 5:46) is heavier on bass and has MJ voice more upfront but it's not that different from the album version. There's also a "Bi-Polar at the controls" version

That's another strength of the 3-CD edition : (at last) they used the songs full length versions. Add She's So Cold at the end of CD 2, and you get the best overview of the Stones last 45 years or so...
