Dead Man Cumming - Foxboro
Foxboro, Ma. - September 28, 1989 - The Eternal Records RSCDX 510/624 055-2 - SB 6
Comments: Beautiful, close miked soundboard recording - far better than the mixed-for-broadcast recordings. Rehearsal performance. Note: the dates listed above and on the cover art are incorrect, this is actually the second rehearsal held in Philadelphia, Pa. on August 29, 1989 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.
