The Rolling Stones - Bridges To Buenos Aires (1998)

And meanwhile I'm still thinking....


Recorded live on 5th of April 1998 in Buenos Aires, Argentina

After the recent release of Bridges To Bremen from September 1998, from the Bridges To Babylon tour, this would seem to be a pretty superfluous follow-up. It is taken from five months earlier and is performed in front of the usual raucous, ridiculously enthusiastic Latin American crowd in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The set lists do not differ much (both 22 songs) other than we get a comparative live rarity in Sister Morphine from Sticky Fingers, a cover of Chuck Berry's Little Queenie, and When The Whip Comes Down from Some Girls. The sound quality is excellent and the band seem loose, relaxed and enthusiastic.

I guess the real highlight is the fact that Bob Dylan joins them for Like A Rolling Stone (he had played a set beforehand). He is also present on Jumpin' Jack Flash and You Can't Always Get What You Want but unless you watch the DVD you couldn't tell. His performance on Like A Rolling Stone is suitably shambolic, but it has an obvious appeal. He sees to be enjoying himself when you see the performance, though, which is always nice to see.

So there you go, yet another Rolling Stones live album. I now have so many I've lost count. It is a good one though, but aren't they all?
