The Rolling Stones - Cricket Ground Perth, Australia 1973-02-24

Amazing, is what I'm going with.  It's a great show and recording. Back in the day, when the internet was just a baby, there was a bootleg label called Swingin' Pig Records. As this soundboard recording will prove, they rocked. I don't know how they did it, but they must have had some serious connections. Swingin' Pig generally had the absolute best. Occasionally they'd did have a few that sounded rough, but nobody had anything better. This concert is one of their top notch releases. Which is very fortunate for us, because there's not a lot out there for '73' tour. That sounds this good. Everything is well balanced,, and all the instruments can be distinguished, throughout the show. The boys are on it, and playing their best. And the set list, well see for yourself. One interesting note, it's Nicky Hopkins birthday on the night of this show. I think that makes this kinda a special event.

Set List:

1. Brown Sugar
2. Bitch
3. Rocks Off
4. Gimme Shelter
5. Happy
6. Tumbling Dice
7. Love In Vain
8. Sweet Virginia
9. You Can't Always Get What You Want
10. Honky Tonk Women
11. All Down The Line
12. Midnight Rambler
13. Band Introductions - Happy Birthday Nicky
14. Little Queenie
15. Rip This Joint
