KEITH RICHARDS
The Complete Honeymoon Tapes… So Far [Acid Project 029, 2CD]
Live at the apartment of the Finisterra Hotel, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico; December 18, 1983 during the honeymoon of Keith Richards and Patti Hansen.

Thanks to Captain Acid [compilation and remastering]; Mr D [artwork]; and exile1972 for sharing the tracks at Dime.

Notes:

The source for this was Outsider Bird Records (OBR) vinyl rip tracks on first disc) and Hot Lips - The Complete Honeymoon tapes (second disc, and few track that I have put on the first one )

The most important thing I have done was pitch correction. The closest pitch was on “Peaches Gone South” (bootleg), but even that one was not completely ok and I did not like the remastering job they did, it was too hot.

I have also done some EQ and level correction, cleaned some clicks and pops too. OBR vinyl rip was a much better source but did not have all of the tracks. Hot Lips bootleg had a muddy sound which I fixed, but also there was tape hiss on that one, and I did not want to use noise reduction, because I just don’t like it. So there is still some hiss on second disc but generally it sounds much better than any other bootleg with these tracks. I have also rearranged the order of tracks, to my own taste.

  2. This aint rock & roll man . Cactas or Zepelin would be way better then this disco garbage .More clasick rock

    By Derrick on Mar 31, 2022

  3. That was not me above . I ain’t been commenting much these fuckin days . Too many motherfuckin, Dic suckin, coon and hi yeller lovin jew Bastard name hijackers here these days. Plus all the queer faggots who is obsessed wit dics

    By Derrick on Mar 31, 2022

  4. Them bastards copy everybody’s names here , Anti , triple h , everybody’s . Can’t respond to every time them Bastards sign off as me . They is too many of them Coc suckers hopefully anti , triple h etc can tell the difference. Love Keith Richards by the way , always loved the stones in the 60s and 70s , especially the Mick Taylor years , not so much today

    By Derrick on Mar 31, 2022

  5. Some more Led Zep or Cactus , Floyd , Purple , The Who Sabbath etc would hit the spot. More classic rock for sure . That is really me , not the jew Bastard fake sit offs

    By Derrick on Mar 31, 2022

  6. Hey anti , been getting into the cars lately , Ric Occasic Ben Orr , Elliot Easton , Dave Robinson etc . What a fuckin great band they was . I feel I missed out man . Never was a fan back in their heyday , but started listening to them first few albums and they was great . Orr was a great singer and frontman , he died in 2000 from pancreatic cancer, Occasic died a couple years ago .

    By Derrick on Mar 31, 2022

  7. Elliot Easton was one great fuckin lead guitarist too . Very underrated. Some great lead solos on them albums and especially live . That band had some singles that was catchy as shit like Let’s go , Best friends girl , good times roll etc . Plus all them great early albums . Some folks called em new wave , but to me they was a combination of classic rock and great singles radio rock . Let’s go would have fit right in in the 60s am radio drivin down the highway In a 66 mustang

    By Derrick on Mar 31, 2022

  8. Anti ; side two of the cars first album is one of the best sides of a album I has heard . It’s like one great long 20 minute song . Ben Orr does most of the vocals , it climaxes wit all mixed up . Orr is awesome on vocals , Easton on lead , Occasic on rythem Hawkes on keyboards and sax . Just a fuckin great album and band . Give it a listen man . Band was even better live . Like many bands though when the mtv 80s arrived they got caught up in that 80s overproduction sound like most bands did . Analog went out and didgitle took over . Too me too much production in the studio was a bad thing . It was the beginning of the end for great music . Drum machines synths has led to today’s total decay of music to where it’s all plastic and fake

    By Derrick on Mar 31, 2022

  9. Derrick, the cars were a great band . Ric Occasic was a genius, Elliott Easton a great lead guitarist and Benjamin Orr was an unbelievable great singer and bass player.RIP Ben and Ric. Cars don’t get the respect they deserve.

    By Derrick on Mar 31, 2022

  21. Keith does a soundcheck… basically. This isn’t an all-time great session. Its what every guitarist of Keith’s era does — including most of us amateurs — lying around strumming through a mix of Buddy Holly, Hank Williams, old Stones.. whatever comes to mind. What makes this fun is knowing I do the same thing — including maybe ten of the songs in this set… and every guitarist out there of Keith or my age does the same in teh same repertoire.

    IMHO the best Stones are the Mick Taylor live recordings — “Ya Ya’s,” “Brussels Affair” but for a certain group of fans and guitar players — YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE — this is fun.

    I guess if your Keith Richards you get to bring your guitar and recording gear on your honeymoon. I didn’t bring guitars on either of mine, but found other ways to have fun.

    By Frederick Miller on Apr 1, 2022

  22. Frednodik Miller, nobody cares about your faggy honeymoon.

    By Travis on Apr 1, 2022

  23. Don’t even post things that are missing tracks due to SUPPOSED “official release” if you’re not going to tell us where we can find them.

    It wastes everyone’s time.
