L.A.Friday (Live 1975) (2012)
You Can Always Get What You Want

Another addition to the Rolling Stones’ reasonably priced online series of vintage live concerts. This one’s from 1975, recorded in Los Angeles and mixed by Bob Clearmountain. The band includes Ronnie Wood (replacing the recently departed Mick Taylor), Ian Stewart and Billy Preston, who gets a couple of songs for himself. Also available in the series is The Brussels Affair ’73 Hampton Coliseum (Live 1981). The newest is titled either Tokyo (Live 1990)Tokyo 1990 or Live At The Tokyo Dome… it’s hard to tell. Google The Rolling Stones Archive for a link to their live downloads and expensive boxed product.

    Thanks a lot, Willard!

    Summer of ’75 was the first time I ever saw the Stones — saw them twice, both in Buffalo, at the beginning and at the end of the summer.

    At the time, besides being the Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the World, they were also the loudest! After the first show, which was in an indoor arena, my ears rang for 3 days, but I didn’t care.

    At the end of the summer, they came back and played Rich Stadium, an all-day affair with The Outlaws and Bobby Womack. It was a general admission show (remember those?) and pandemonium reigned. At the end of the night, walking dazedly out of the stadium, I looked around and realized I had never seen so many puddles of puke in my entire life.

    Now THAT’s rock and roll.

    Are you from Buffalo, Gummo? I did a klot of Rich stadium concerts coming from Rochester an hour away….I was there in Buffalo but for the inside show. It was my Fourth time…1965 in Rochester stopped after a handful of songs when the audience DANCED OMG, ’69 in MSG NYC Ya Yas concert with BB King & Ike & Tina and then in ’72 MSG NYC Mick’s B-day w/ Stevie Wonder… what I remember about the Buffalo show was having LAST row at the back of the Aud dreadfully hot AND that instead of THE METERS they had The Crusaders big disappointment…still have my eagle/airplane t-shirt from the concert…it was so cheap it was already faded by the time i got it…can you imagine it now?Plus sadly my belly is too big to wear It was a good tour show though my fave would have to be the YA Yas MSG show or the 72 MSG show. I’ve only ever been able to find a handful of cuts from that one…back then they were doing the 14 minute Midnight Rambler with Mick Taylor like on the Brussels Affair boot, which is the closest I’ve heard to my poor faded memories..I look forward to this one, too Thanx

    That HAS to be Ollie E. Brown doubling on drums during “Outta Space”! I have never heard Charlie Watts play that hard or use that many embellishments. I tried to look this concerts details up, but there is little to nothing, even on the Stones “official” website! I know Charlie is a good drummer, but if that was all him, then he has SEVERELY wasted his talents over the years. I never heard him hit that hard or percussively on the other bootlegs from around this time either. Completely bizarre!

    You’re right. It is Brown on bass.

      *whew* It is already bad enough that as we age we lose portions of our mind we really could have used WITHOUT using drugs, but for those of us who “may have rolled in the catnip”, That was an epiphany! I actually considered for a second that Charlie had been “hiding” his talents!
      Thanks Willard!

        At least you could actually hear the difference.

    Duncan, no, but I went to college at SUNY Buffalo from 1973 to 1977, and a couple of years I stayed there for the summers too.

    Saw the Dead in September ’76 in Rochester. That was a great one, too!

    Thanks for this, Willard! Man, I wish the Stones would just fully release all of these archival live albums as normal, in record store CD’s – I’d buy ’em! As it is, I think they are only download (and only in foreign countries I believe) or as mega-expensive hardcopy sets. Sheesh!

      I get the frustration, but it’s actually kind of smart. If they paid for the manufacturing, it would still end up for free online (and you know how few hard copy sales take place these days). So they use them like loss leaders. They’re like $8.99 for downloads (I think, which is reasonable). Knowing full well most people will get them for free online. Then… if people want to fork over the big dough, they get those elaborate boxes that can’t be duplicated on line. I’ve got to hand it to them for coming up with a smart game plan in this new era of record distribution. It’s fairly priced for the cheap seats but elaborately boxed for the hard core fans.

    Great to have such a high-quality sounding ’75 show! The final ’75 show at MSG was my first Stones show, and still ranks among my top three concerts of all time. The Stones played a full week at the Garden, with Eric Clapton joining them for the Monday encore and Carlos Santana doing the same on Friday, the one I went to. Carlos, Keith and Ronnie trading licks and jamming on “Sympathy…” unbelievable!
