Civic Centre Arena, Pittsburgh, PA, 22 July 1972.

The source tape is slightly hissy and muffled. A lot crackles and pops (probably from vinyl disc transfered to CD). Taylor and Richards guitars come through well. The band was "right on" that night, as Jagger lays into his vocals.
Also available under these titles:
"An American Affair" Montserrat records
"Plane Sex On The Way To Pittsburg" VGP-205

Review by: CooleyOn 29 May 2010 at 03:59 CEST

I completely agree with L. Shalders on the performances of the Stones at this late stage of their 48-show North American tour.

I have listened extensively to the shows from Philadelphia before this Pittsburgh show, and the Madison Square Gardens shows after it.

As L. Shalders points out, they really were at the top of their game by this stage of the tour.

Performances were tight, rehearsed and very dynamic with very few missed cues or mistakes.

Mick Taylor in particular, just got better and better throughout the tour.

Some critics have indicated that from the Montreal shows in mid-July to the end of the tour on 26th July, the Stones performances were rather exhausted with the band adopting a "Let's Just Get This Overwith" attitude.

Well you sure wouldn't see that from the dynamic Philadelphia and New York performances.

L. Shalders is very right, one has to reassess the critics opinions of their tour performances by this point....they were utterly superb, at the peak of performing and extremely dynamic.

While I haven't heard this performance, the shows immediately before and after were superb.

This was the last soundboard recording from the 72 tour to surface until now, and has the most rough mixing of them all, it really wasn't worked out in any way.
The Pittsburg show stands in the middle of the very best performances by the Stones on this tour, the Philadelphia and the New York concerts, and as pure music is fantastic, when you forget the rudeness of the mix. The band was a sharp machine at this point, they could do no wrong, and this concert also shows that. Taylor's solo on "Love in Vain" is simply fantastic. Had it a superb sound it could rival with the philly shows, for sure. Of course it's edited in order to fit in one single cd, so we miss some chat between songs, but it's great anyway, and is in true stereo, Taylor on left channel and Richards on the right.
It's not true that the recording presents lot of crackles, but there's a level flutuation on the first track (Brown Sugar), which can be easily fixed on a computer. The only serious flaw is the fact that "Street Fighting Man" is not complete. The surprise is "Brown Sugar" from Paris 1970 being presented in stereo soundboard.
The myth that the band was shattered by the end of the tour is denied every time a new recording from this period comes out, is amazing ! "Give me two weeks", said Jagger to Dick Cavett on july 25, before the New York concert, when asked if he could do it all again. Actually he wouldn't need it, folks!
