Rolling Stones Release ‘L.A. Friday’ Bootleg From 1975
The third album to be released on the Rolling Stones‘ archive website is a legendary show from the band’s tour of America in 1975. While the massive collection of songs is titled ‘L.A. Friday,’ it was actually recorded on a Sunday — July 13, 1975.
Fans get 24 remastered tracks for just $5 when they order the album digitally through the archive website (via Google Music). Hits include ‘Honky Tonk Woman,’ ‘Gimme Shelter,’ ‘Heartbreaker,’ ‘Angie’ and ‘Brown Sugar,’ the song the band kicked off the tour playing through the streets of New York City.
Ronnie Wood was new to the band that year, and the 44 date tour (including five at the Los Angeles Forum) was his introduction to America. The album was remastered by legendary engineer Bob Clearmoutain, who mixed songs like ‘Miss You’ and ‘Out of Tears.’
Previously the Rolling Stones had released a 1981 show at the Hampton Coliseum and a 1973 show from Brussels, in addition to tour photos from Ken Regan. The site promises more audio, film, pictures and memorabilia in the future.
