The Rolling Stone 1975-06-01 State University Assembly Center, Baton Rouge, LA



THE ROLLING STONES - BATON ROUGE 1975 (1st show)
(Silkcut1978 source)

LINEAGE:
Silkcut1978 nice tape -> DIME torrent -> me -> CDRs [using nero7] -> WAV (EAC v0.99 prebeta 5 - secure, Offset "actual") -> FLAC (flacfrontend, level 6) -> You

VENUE/DATE:
State University Assembly Center, Baton Rouge, Louisiana
June 1st 1975 [1st show]

QUALITY:
Good - Very Good Audience

PERFORMANCE:
There's a LOT of energy here - I absolutely love this show. Much better than the 2nd show that day, allthough that one is quite good as well
Rolling Stones seems both fueled with energy AND nervous - which makes a good combination.....Baton Rouge 1975 1st show is one of a kind....!

It's worth mentioning that this is Ronnie Wood's FIRST concert with the Rolling Stones. And he does a great job.....as well as all other members of the band
The setlist features some rarities; Rocks Off, Luxury and Dance Little Sister
Why didn't they continue having Dance Little Sister and Luxury in the setlist for the 1975 Tour Of The Americas ? Those 2 songs are the highlights in this Baton Rouge show (IMO), as well as all other 1975 shows in which they performed these 2 tracks

COMMENTS:
I downloaded this recording in 2006 - from DIME. At the time, I had a tiny hard-drive, and therefor didn't store the torrents, but burned them to CDR. This torrent here is a rip from such CDRs.
This recording was shared by mr Silkcut1978, taken from his tapes. Many thanks to him
I never put up CDR-copies of previous torrents on tracker. It's better to have the whole torrent intact - and then reseeding it
But I'm doing an exception in this case, as I was STUNNED by the difference between the DAC release (which I recieved on silver yesterday) and this Silkcut1978 share

COMMENTS #2:
The best "bootleg" of this historical show is DAC's "Somewhere Over The Rainbow".
This torrent here features the exact same recording, but in way better soundquality. I don't know if DAC just completely butchered the Silkcut1978 torrent by "EQ-work", or if they put out a higher generation tape of this recording.
Anyway - THIS torrent is a grand upgrade (IMO) over all bootlegs. Especially over the VGP release "First Night Stand" (which is a completely different recording of the same show)

COMMENTS #3:
The bonus track is taken from a "well known" TV report of Baton Rouge 1975. Great quality - but incomplete.

ARTWORK
Selfmade artwork included. I made them years ago for my own enjoyment, but I'm including them in this torrent.....hope they are decent enough.

THANKSES:
All the thankses goes to Silkcut1978. He is the one who kindly shared his tapes - from trades, way back then.
Also thanks to the person who recorded this concert of course.
