The Stones’ record breaking 1981 tour ended with their next to last date on Keith’s 38th birthday broadcast as “The World’s Greatest Rock’n’Roll Party” on pay-per-view and in closed circuit cinemas [I assume there was a radio broadcast as well and this and other vinyl bootlegs were mastered from that]. It was the first such use of pay-per-view for a music event” and remembered mostly for the colorful stage design by Kazuhide Yamazaki and Keith Richards fighting off a stage invader with his black Fender Telecaster during “Satisfaction”.

Not to be mixed up with the Japanese triple LP set with the almost identical title that contained an audience recording from the Los Angeles Coliseum concerts on the 9th & 11th of October, which for some reason used the same images, only in color:

Luxembourg’s Swingin’Pig label released a 3 LP box of the Hampton recording ca. 1991 (TSP 100-2):

The recording will be officially released on Eagle Rock in different digital video & audio formats, as well as on three LP’s on 3 November 2014:

This must have been a nice change for the guys at Flying Horses, not just pressing 300 copies of a title by an obscure artist that may have taken some time to sell but really going for it with a release by a popular mainstream band (that toured Europe the year this was released to boot). I just wonder if their hearts were really in it?
