The Rolling Stones
Reviewed by Raoul Hernandez, Fri., Aug. 7, 2015
Like Springsteen, the Stones have begun legitimizing public-domain bootlegs. This taping for 150-200 in London thus shelves next to previous promo stunt The Rolling Stones' Rock & Roll Circus. Launching Sticky Fingers three years later, Mick Jagger resembles Ava Gardner while Keith Richards looks criminal, but the Glimmer Twins' harmonies on C&W stingray "Dead Flowers" and Mick Taylor's lightning leads transcend. Eight songs, four alternate takes, and a Top of the Pops throwaway tally 65 minutes: Bobby Keys is on, Richards fumbles Chuck Berry's "Let It Rock" (gasp), and "Bitch" burns – thrice! CD included.
