I picked up the Brussels Affair bootleg CD in a big store in Madrid many years ago. Got it home and was truly staggered by the guitar work on the first 2 tracks. Have played them thousands of times!! When the official release was announced I got excited BUT unfortunately it doesn't sound right to my ears!! I can't explain wh...... but I am sticking with my old bootleg version!

For vinyl audiophiles there is one clear winner for sheer sound quality. Aftermath. Obviously hunt out a proper original vinyl version, ie pre digital rubbish!!

Birmingham (UK) 1973 2nd Show. What a stunning 'live' period was The Taylor Years. The only downside being the occasional use of a wah wah pedal which sends me straight to MUTE!!!! (Wow!! I have really enjoyed reading this thread. Thanks all).

The clarity of the official release is good but the 'mix' on the original bootleg is far better in my opinion. So much so that I find the official release a bit irritating. For me the boot 'Gimme Shelter is their finest live moment. Incredible guitar weaving! Go find the original!!

Sounds like a great night in prospect! Sure am looking forward to it. Normally if I go to a London pub I take my own food in my pocket to avoid getting poisoned!!! However The Hope & Anchor has a 5/5 Official Food Hygeine rating, (as at 3rd August 2017). I will certainly be tucking into their grub afore the much anticipated performance of the 21st!

Travel from Stratford / Olympic is so easy on Central Line taking you right back through the City and into the West End which is where I would be wanting to stay if looking for a hotel. (Twickenham is not as easy!).

Hi Folks. Was in the Golden Circle for Paris #3 and was very pleased. Will probably go for Pit in London. What is the difference between A and B? Is it left / right of Mick's ramp?

Wow! Just back @ hotel. Had Fosse Or ticket. So much better than the 116 block seat that I had last week. Sound great down on floor. Great performance. Great set list. Street Fightin' Man my highlight.

RER back to Les Halles and beyond for me was excellent. I was in Block 118 and the sound was awful in terms of the sound coming back from rear...particularly the drums. My guess is that sound would be OK down front central. I really don't mind the odd bum note.

The Captain is over from London consuming pre concert beers up by Gare du Nord. Have carried out proper planning this time after being unable to find Stade de France and missing start some years ago. Have never admitted that before! Bring on Street Fightin' Man. That's what I'm here for! Hope to meet some IORRs after show. (Thanks as always to Bjornulf for an incredible site).

I know that the title is pre Aftermath but there is some Aftermath chat in here. I grew up as a kid from Stones 1st album. Route 66, Walkin The Dog, Mona and Can I Get A Witness. Don't overlook the wonderful Wyman bass playing on so much of the early stuff particularly I Wanna Be Your Man. I have bought several releases of Out Of Our Heads and struggle with the recording quality. On the

Although all publicity is normally good I think that this bit is neg for him. It gives off a subliminal message! I remember in the early days of Genesis John Peel quipped "I can think of nothing more hellish than a singing drummer"!!

England! It is just a question about the quality of the studio recording, (or quality of pressings), of the tracks selected for the UK pressings.

Sorry to butt in!! I have always had a question about 'Out Of Our Heads'. (UK LP). I still use a high end vinyl system for pre digital age LPs. Apart from the original copy I have bought 2 more. So I now have 3 copies and all are (seemingly) badly recorded with a rumbling sound to them. I note that the US version includes 'Play With Fire' and 'Spider and Fly'. 2

A magnificent tune. Might it have been deliberately out of tune to give it that emotional 'edge' that I can't put into words? It works for me as is! Played it over and over on a 45 as a kid!

If you can't get to the show and are in europe with a HD stb move your dish to 24.5W and tune to 11580H 7500. The show is currently live. Have set timer and am off to get the train up there now. Hope to watch a rerun later if they don't switch off or encrypt the feed at 20.25!! Cheers folks!

I got my actual paper ticket for 13th, (posted in UK to UK), on 29th June. Delighted. However a friend is still waiting for 6th July tickets, in his case, from Viagogo who infuriatingly aren't answering the phone, (at least within 90 mins anyway), or answering emails or providing any tracking info. No communication from them whatsoever and given that processing fees are excesssive there is

Unfortunately nothing listed for a repeat on Radio 2. (I fell asleep after 15 mins but it sounded excellent). Wish that I had stuck a minidisc in now. Still available for UK listeners on demand though for 6 days.

Taylor is THE Man!! Gimme Shelter T2 Brussels Affair is my fav. I'm not so sure that you are in the minority Shaun20. You 'wood' have to be tone deaf to believe that R Wood did anything to advance the Stones work! I wish him well but it is time for the Stones to kick off the next tour with that old Chuck Berry fav 'Bye Bye Ronnie'!!
