Japan: second half of 1976. Among the four earliest Japanese Rolling Stones bootlegs (see comment section).

Source: Very good stereo audience recording from the fifth of eight shows at London’s Earl’s Court on 23 May 1976. There are certainly more popular ’76 RS live recordings than this one.

Side 1: Honky Tonk Women [03:55] / Hand Of Fate [03:58] / Hey Negrita [05:18] / Ain’t Too Proud to Beg [04:25] / Fool to Cry [05:15] / Hot Stuff [05:16]
Side 2: Band intro [01:55] / Happy [03:05] / Tumbling Dice [04:18] / Nothing From Nothing [03:22] / It’s Only Rock’n Roll (But I Like It) [04:35] / Brown Sugar [03:33] / Jumping Jack Flash [03:20] / Street Fighting Man [06:20] 

Matrix: RS-76071-1 (A)/2B

Almost 30 minutes of music per side, pushing the limits of how much music is too much on a record.

Rolling Stones Earl's Court '76 ticket80p more compared to seeing the stones at Wembley three years prior. That sounds very reasonable.

    Think it is the 4th Japanese title. Comeback To England (OG), Hide Park (OG) and Wembley (LLX) are earlier, maybe also Stoned Again (Blimp).

    I collect stones LP boots and dont mind audience recordings but this one sucks and should be avoided…it is inferior sound quality. It has a nice cover but that’s about as good as it gets. I can not actually tell which song is playing the sound is so bad.
