RE-UP: Rolling Stones live in New York 2006 - 2CD - March 14

Rolling Stones
A Private Concert to Benefit Robin Hood
Radio City Music Hall
New York, NY
March 14, 2006

This was the first time the Rolling Stones ever played Radio City Music Hall.  It was one of those
rare opportunities to see the worlds best rock 'n roll band in a concert hall built for music and not
an arena or stadium with crappy sound.   My seat was a $1000 seat in the last row of the
orchestra under the overhang .... nothing doing there, the sound would have been awful.  I
upgraded myself out in the open and into the $2,500 seats and wound up 6 rows FOB & DFC
(Front of Board & Directly Fucking Centered)!!!  This recording was made from as sweet a spot
as the sweet spot offers.  This was, as Mick notes, the most "well heeled" crowd the Stones have
ever played for, "even more so than Dubai, and you have more wives too.".  It was yuppie
central.  Mix in alcohol and clappers were all over the place.  Distressed though I may have been
of the yutz behind me who not only clapped the entire show, but he had no rhythm and was off
beat, you don't really hear much of it.  The guy next to me also started clapping during the 2nd «
of the show.  That's when I started dancing more wildly, striking his arms to keep him from
clapping, he got the message after a few hard "accidental" bumps.  An occasional hoot here and
there and clapping between songs, but all in all, this is amongst the best audience recordings I
have heard from this years tour.   I know you are all going to love this recording.

Note as I was leaving and walking by the soundboard I asked the sound man for a copy of his set
list.  He said "Here ya go mate!!!"  I have attached a scan of it to this torrent for all of you.

Note also that Sheryl Crow was supposed to open the show, but obviously due to her recent
illness she had to cancel.  Get well soon Sheryl, we all miss you and want to see you back on
stage.  Instead, the always enjoyable party band the B-52's filled in as the opening act.
Unfortunately I missed the first 45 seconds of their set, but I am including all of what I have of
their set as a part of this torrent.
