According to Bill Wyman, the 2nd show at Oshawa 1979 (which this torrent features) was a lot better than the 1st one.
Which makes me very grateful that there’s no good sounding recordings of the 1st show (only a piss poor recording exists of the 1st show)
Because….this 2nd show at Oshawa is a complete riot – it’s impossible to be “serious” when listening to the performance Rolling Stones and New Barbarians gave that afternoon.
The whole show is filled with mistakes from the band – Ronnie and Keith is obviously drunk as skunks – and unlike now……Jagger is drunk as well! (no need to even mention John Belushi – who introduces the show…..he’s in another dimension)
Just listen to “Respectable” – if you like to hear “the greatest R&R band in the world” being “the most out-of-it R&R band in the world”
It’s interesting to know that during “Jumpin Jack Flash” – the bass player of New Barbarians (Stanley Clarke) joined Rolling Stones.
And – due to recent published photos; he also starred on “Miss You” !
That’s quite unique. Not many people have been allowed on-stage with the Rolling Stones during the years, apart from vocals.
I would not blame Bill Wyman if he didn’t bother to be the only bass player on stage that night. I wouldn’t even blame him for leaving the entire show, and have a quiet cup of tea instead.
I’m uploading this bootleg, as it is the BEST source for this show. And…there’s a *new* release from “Godfather records” which feature the Rolling Stones part of this show. I haven’t heard that “Godfather” bootleg – but as always….Godfather copy other bootlegs, and then tweaken the sound, with EQ
So save your money – and get the best source of this must-have show here.
