All-Meat Music - TMOQ [Goody Remaster, 1CD]

Live at The Forum, Inglewood, CA; January 18, 1973. Very good audience recording.

Thanks to original uploader Soundboard; and to Goody (remaster) for sharing the show at Dime.

This concert was performed to benefit victims of earthquake that happened in Nicaragua on December 23, 1972.

This is one of the magical bootlegs that sparked my interest at the very beginning. I saw it in the used record bins at independent record stores (Scorpio Records on West 4th in Vancouver) and eventually picked up a copy. This was one of many releases by Trademark of Quality (TMOQ) that had intriguing insert artwork by William Stout, the art adding even more to the mystery of where this thing had come from.

Years later I read about the history of TMOQ and the path of how this and other boots came about. Some good background on the story here.

The story of how William Stout began doing artwork for TMOQ here.

This is one of my favorite Rolling Stones boots because of the set list and especially the version of Route 66. Ever since I heard this recording, I always hoped the original tape would appear in the same way that the “Liv’r Than You’ll Ever Be” (another TMOQ release) tapes did. I have read that the pressing plates and maybe the master tape for this gig were thrown into the Pacific Ocean in a moment of paranoia by the makers and that the only low gen sources of the show are the original vinyl pressings. I decided I should try to make a version that was more listenable for my own pleasure.

My vinyl copy has long disappeared. All CD boots come from the original TMOQ vinyl so that lineage is hazy, I looked for something with a known lineage and found Silkcut 78’s source through recommendations on the IORR message board.

This boot is a rabbit hole of discovery. Each of the four sides has its own dynamic range and surface noise issues from the original vinyl. Silkcut78 used a de-crackle process to clean up the audio to create a great archived TMOQ copy. For this project I wanted to try to remove as many of the surface noise issues, thumps, and clicks as possible.

I joined the files into one giant track and set about de-noising with heavy handed voodoo and witchcraft to see how far this thing could be pushed. The next step was trying to make it sound closer and find as much of Mick’s voice as I could (He is just lost in the live mix on Brown Sugar and later at the end of the concert). Charlie and Bill were challenges also and still lost at some points due to the original source limitations. Keith’s guitar is present but also lost at times because as those familiar with the recording Mick Taylor’s guitar is very upfront most of the show and buries the band at moments. There may have been some real PA audio issue also as Mick calls out the sound crew at a point so maybe it’s not just where the taper was positioned, perhaps the audience could not hear him either.

Last was trying to master this moving target. I played this back through many different environments, car, living room, headphones at home, and earphones walking around. Each time I tried to tweak something more it sounded to heavy on the low end or too bright in the highs, so I have settled on this mix as the best all around version. You may need to adjust it either way for your system and feel free to do so – this is for listening pleasure.

So here we are 49 years, 6 months, 4 days later, a celebration of this amazing release.

July 2022

SPECIAL THANKS go out to Silkcut1978, Jaap, and Erik Snow for providing the vinyl transfer, and to the IORR community in general.

The speed of the source ran quite fast, the pitch running between approximately 40-60 cents sharp.
It is now slowed down to the correct speed, thereby properly tuning it up.
Many thanks to all involved in the creation, capture, and sharing of this great and extremely valuable archive.
It’s quite an interesting document from a slightly different sonic perspective as it turns out to focus on the incredible guitar playing of Mick Taylor from what turned out to be the taper’s favorable but probably untended recording spot to do just that.

  5. I became a devoted Stones fan the night King Bisquit broadcast a show in 1973 and I happened to have a blank tape in my sister’s 8-Track tape recorder in her stereo. My friends were subjected to that tape every time we went anywhere in my car after I got my license.KBFH broadcast several Stones concerts that year and none were the same as that first one. I tried to get a new cvopy of the show on vinyl or cassette and didn’t find one. There was the show labeled ‘Europe’ and one labeled Belgium and another ‘France’ but none were the same show. We had listened to that show so many times we knew every note and stray comment or when someone in the audience let loose with a shrill whistle. Finally decades after the original taping I got a copy of the complete broadcast. It is perhaps the best recordings live of several of the shows on that tour such as “Angie” and “Midnight Rambler” and even “Dead Flowers” with terrible versions of JJF and ‘Street fighting man”. It was because of that KBFH broadcast that I spent a lot of time and money collecting Stones records. Eventually I turned and became a Who fan then moved on to Siouxsie and the Banshees. Still, Mick Taylor was the greatest thing hat ever happened to the Stones and it only showed up on the live recordings. Richards was responsible for Taylor becoming a hardcore heroin addict before quitting the band over keith erasing all of Mick’s work on their new album. He left and the result was a rock and roll band playing “Miss You” and “Beast of Burden”. He got clean, got old and became a beacon of light on the stage of the Stones shows he ‘guest’ appeared on. he has never appeared to have an ego but he threatened Keith Richards position of being number two behind Jagger. Now they are all simply waiting for their number to be called.

  9. Iran and Saudi Arabia choose peace. By Pepe Escobar.

    The idea that History has an endpoint, as promoted by clueless neoconservatives in the unipolar 1990s, is flawed, as it is in an endless process of renewal. The recent official meeting between Saudi Foreign Minister Faisal bin Farhan al-Saud and Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian in Beijing on April 6 marks a territory that was previously deemed unthinkable and which has undoubtedly caused grief for the War Inc. machine.

    This single handshake signifies the burial of trillions of dollars that were spent on dividing and ruling West Asia for over four decades. Additionally, the Global War on Terror(GWOT), the fabricated reality of the new millennium, featured as prime collateral damage in Beijing.
