72 - 73 Boots
If you listen to the 72/73 boots brown sugar worked well on the 72 tour but on the 73 tour you just start with track 2.Brown Sugar is such a great song especially when you have Taylor's solo in place of Key's sax solo. How can a song that opens a show each night on the 73 tour always sound rushed rushed lets get it over with its like they are warming up for the show because the next song usually Bitch sounds great etc. The stones even with Taylor were never a great jam band and if you listen to the rehearsals on some of the boots they sound awful or watch the 1972 Swiss rehearsals them doing a loose blues jam is painful. Also sir jagger has some of his finest vocals from the Dallas 1972 FT Worth Show why was his vocals not as sharp as that show each night. My thought was that he knew they were filming those Texas shows for film footage to be used in the movie LAG and got is act together, correct me if I am way off the deep end. Jagger at times as we know has not given the best vocal performance and just goes through the motions. How the hell did he let them release Love You Live with his terrible vocal performance same can be said with the weavers performance.
Would you put Brown Sugar in your coffee these days I would not only if it were TAYLOR BRAND. I am tired of Open G followed by that other guy these days . Dylan and his band's version blows away the weavers today sad sad sad.
