Australia 1966 [Teague Raw Remaster, 1CD]

Live at the Palais Theatre, St Kilda, Melbourne, Australia; February 24, 1966; broadcast by Australian 3UZ radio, Melbourne. Live at the Commemorative Auditorium-Showgrounds, Sydney, Australia; February 18, 1966 (first show); broadcast by Australian 2UW FM radio. Very good to excellent broadcasts.

A recent batch of Rolling Stones shows, remastered by Teague Raw, has been getting the thumbs up from fans. While the St Kilda show sounds wonderful; the source material for the Sydney show is very rough and the tracks difficult to work with. The Sydney show, which appeared on the Brian Jones He’s Not Dead boot, has been described as “garbled buzzing of very poor quality recording”. And for anyone who had to suffer through these tracks, while they are far from perfect, at least they are listenable here.

Thanks to captain_acid who shared the tracks at HungerCity. This is what captain_acid commented:

“Just a few words about the work of Teague Raw. This French guy that has entered the iorr community recently is absolutely the most talented guy, in a long while. He is not a pro, considering remastering but his work on early Stones albums is much better than any official versions of those albums. His remasters are never over-done. They are always done with a lot of taste and care, and usually are the best versions, so far.”

  2. love St Kilda, but Sydney_eh. I agree that the Sydney recording is now listenable, but it is not something you would want to play in your car. It is something valuable from a documentary point of view. Oh, that I wish the Sydney concert were in good condition, because it is obvious that they were having so much fun!

  3. A giant lemon in the mouth to the D.J. doing the commercial over the Stones live!!

  5. its a pity that these radio stations dont have these recordings to rebroadcast these shows or make them available to the band or other lables that tend to release such things so that we could hear these in better quality than this. while these normally would be wonderful treasures to cherish due to their scarcity etc. this is just pathetic. i so wanted this to be a grail. especially since its fm. i didnt have these recordings. sigh.
    maybe someone who sees them on hungercity will say hold on.. i have these in better sound and offer them up on dime and theyll make their way around in better sound and ultimately to us. one can only hope. i need to enjoy the experience. not sit there wishing it was better.

  6. darth, would you like some cheese to go with your whine? back in the day, it was common that radio and TV stations would reuse their tapes to save money. no one was thinking about archiving recordings of pop bands. i’m happy these even exist 46 years later, although i won’t be listening to the sydney show very often. thx bigO!

  7. Yeah, the sound is not great but it is still the Rolling Stones from 1966 when they still had something to prove. Thanks BigO for this and any other 60’s Stones concerts you may dig up.

  8. thanks for posting. I love the idea of the Stones on the golf course! Listening to Mercy, Mercy now. Rocks? But, of course.

  9. The “Play with Fire” from St. Kilda 2/24 is a true revelation. Mick’s vocal is absolutely sinister!

  10. Sydney Show: My old Tape Includes the Intro by the Emcee: ” The Fabulous Rolling Stones ” , then the audience goes crazy , then the tuning of guitars , then Mick says ” Thank You , Have Mercy Baby ” , then the song Mercy Mercy Plays.
