Dead Man Cumming - Washington, D.C.
Washington, D.C. - September 23, 1989 - The Eternal Records - RSCDX 610/624 055-2 - SB 6
Comments: Excellent soundboard, soundcheck and rehearsals. Note - the dates listed above on the cover art are incorrect, this is actually a complete rehearsal set from August 28 in Philadelphia, Pa. as follows:
Empress Valley, soon after this came out, released Dead Man Cumming, which is also misidentified. The artwork says it is rehearsals from Washington D.C. and Foxboro, but actually both are from Philadelphia. This set includes a complete rehearsal set from August 28 (on three discs), and the August 29 set on two discs in slightly less "tinny" sound quality than Better Than the Real Rebirth. These rehearsals, from either title, are among the best of the best quality Stones boots. The set list is fantastic, and the Stones are performing two complete performances of the August 31 opening night show, from start to finish. They include two complete performances of Shattered, which was only performed on opening night and then dropped for the rest of the 1989-1990 tour. The power went out during the performance on August 31, and apparently someone in the Stones was superstitious, so they never did the song again that tour.
