Mick Jagger - From Far East to Down Under
1988 Tour - Swingin' Pig - TSP-CD-130-1/2 - SB 6
Comments: Anyone who has ever been tempted into thinking that Mick Jagger, or even Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, *is* the Rolling Stones, needs listen to this 2-CD set to be proven wrong. Not that it isn't entertaining, or enjoyable - but the Rolling Stones, it AIN'T! This release serves as proof of the contributions of Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Ron Wood - not to mention Keith Richards. This isn't meant in any way to put down the fine musicianship shown here, merely instead to show that there's more to the Stones' music than fine musicianship. Recorded live in Melbourne, Australia on 10/15/88, Richmond Australia on 10/19/88 and Tokyo Japan on 3/23/88.
