Stones at 50: Preserving the LIVE legacy!

Brussels Affair (Live 1973)
As a fan of the Rolling Stones, it’s been a good year. In celebration of their 50th anniversary, Mick promised us stuff and stuff we’re getting, including a new book spanning their career, the scheduling of five annoyingly overpriced arena concerts, three here in the US and two in the UK, with strong hints of more to come; the release of (whoopee! another) Greatest Hits collection, a CD release of excellent 1978-era outtakes; and two documentaries covering aspects of their amazing career.

But best of all, we got live music from the archives. That's what this post is about.
