However, all the shows recorded were after Oakland. Live'R was the second
ever bootleg after GWW.  They may have heard what was going on.  remember
legitimate stores were selling bootlegs at the time as they weren't illegal.

given the number of Tommy boots out there.

I can ask my Stones friend but haven't these appeared elsewhere since.  One
of the local radio stations only plays the stereo Satisfaction now.

Opinions vary, but Brusels is not only a great performance it's well
recorded.  Huge stereo separation, it's easy to tell what Mick T. and Keith
are doing.

I haven't heard any new news but early in the year Green broke up the band
and disappeared.

To me there were a couple of performance drop offs, one after '70 and a
major one ofter '73.  I put it down to drugs

To me that's what The Stone are the best bar band in the world, nothing

Well it has worn thin on me lately because of Bobby Keys 10m sax solo of the
last 10 years tours.
