The Rolling Stones – Brussels Affair ’73 (improved sound)


A version of the archive release ‘Brussels Affair ’73’ with improved sound quality. Mick Taylor’s guitar is more integrated than in the original version, whereon his guitar is audible at the extreme left side of the left channel. In this version the band sounds more as a unity. Most songs are from the second Brussels show, which is inferior to the first one (both dated 1973 Oct. 17), only Brown Sugar, Midnight Rambler and Street Fighting Man are from the first Brussels show, and also the solo on All Down The Line, which is thus a ‘hybrid’ song. The famous and superior bootleg Brussels Affair contains songs from the first Brussels show only.
