Title - 'From the Vault: The Marquee Club Live in 1971'
Artist - The Rolling Stones

From The Vault is a new series of live concerts from The Rolling Stones archive which are getting their first official release. The Rolling Stones: From the Vault: Hampton Coliseum Live in 1981 was the very first title in the series, with L.A. Forum Live In 1975 and Live In Hyde Park 1969 following closely behind.

The Rolling Stones now bring us a real flashback treat, as this deluxe CD/DVD set, taken live from the blistering show they performed at London's legendary Marquee club on March 26th 1971 clearly showcases. Indeed, it was performed shortly after the finish of the band's 1971 UK tour and about a month before the release of the Sticky Fingers album in late April.

Mick Taylor was now fully integrated into the group by this stage and the band had used the tour to showcase some of the tracks from the forthcoming album. Also, the reason the show was filmed in the first place is because it was being filmed for American television at the time. As it turned out, four songs from the Sticky Fingers album were featured, including the rarely performed 'I Got The Blues,' which is a true delight to behold here, trust me.

Now, according to the press release, this brilliant Marquee Club performance is finally seeing the light of day, after almost two decades of being stored away in an attic, because someone, somewhere, stumbled across it by pure accident! Quite how such a thing could get lost in the first place, is beyond me, let alone how lucky that person must have been ie: monetarily, to "stumble across them," is completely another, of course!

Anyway, since the performance was recorded 46 years ago, it does obviously count as a major musical find, so when you get to watch or listen to it, keep in mind that we are Blessed to actually be doing so. As for the overall sound and sound and video quality and soundboard mixing, well, they are great, truly. Funnily enough, and with regard the DVD, as much as the overall camera work is great also, given the equipment used back in the day, let alone the small, tight confines of the Marquee Club itself (I have been there, many times, so I know first hand), the camera operate chose to focus in on Mick's face (and, at a lesser level, the other members too) so much that it, at times, could have been a toothpaste advert!

The force of Mick Jagger's showmanship sweeps through the Marquee Club from start to finish though, as you would expect. Charlie Watts and Bill Wyman are always holding the music together, because they were just about the greatest, all be they the most stationary also, rhythm section in rock at that time! Watch how sax player Bobby Keys puts all his soul into the music. His solo on the opening track, 'Live With Me' is as energetic as can be. Keys also does a killer solo on 'I Got the Blues' where Billy Preston's organ once nested. And, of course, Keith Richards is all lit up when he covers Chuck Berry's 'Let It Rock'.

In truth, watching this DVD, listening to the CD, I kinda wish I had seen them them at a small place like this myself. I actually started to envy those who were there! Anyway, this is a very nice CD/DVD package again via the From The Vault series, and factor in the good price point and you have yourselves a bargain, my fellow Rolling Stones fans.

Oh, and just so you know, the footage has now been carefully restored and the sound has been newly mixed by Bob Clearmountain for this first official release of the show.
