I’ve been sharing videos by Pete Pardo from the Sea of Tranquility website. Here is what he has to say about The Rolling Stones.
Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out is often considered to be one of the very best blues rock live albums. Even better as far as I’m concerned is The Brussels Affair. The Stones really should have released this majestic slice of Mick Taylor inspired rock back in the early 1970s.
Here are Pete’s videos.

It’s Too Late To Stop Now Volumes 2, 3 & 4 is a live album by Van Morrison.
This brings us more concert recordings from his 1973 tour that was the source for the original It’s Too Late To Stop Now. The original album picked tracks from:
- The Troubadour, Los Angeles, California,
- Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, Santa Monica, California,
- Rainbow Theatre, London, England.
Volumes 2, 3 and 4 provides previously missing tracks from these venues on the following nights:
- The Troubadour, Los Angeles, May 23, 1973,
- Santa Monica Civic, California, June 29, 1973,
- The Rainbow, London, July 23 & 24, 1973.
There is also the option to buy a version with a DVD of the highlights from the London show at The Rainbow on July 24, 1973.
I’ve been a Van Morrison fan for 40 years and I’ve long recognised that It’s Too Late To Stop Now is a terrific live album but could be criticised for:
- Not being long enough – it is just 92 minutes long which is good but not Springsteen-esque.
- It didn’t feature enough of Van Morrison’s own songs as there were 7 covers and 11 Van Morrison originals.
Volumes 2, 3 and 4 puts an end to those complaints.

Hoggin’ The Stage Plus is an extension of the original Hoggin’ The Stage album by the Groundhogs with songs from Leeds and London (1971) and Stockholm (1976).
The Plus version has a track recorded in the USA, Music Is The Food Of Thought (1972?) and four extra songs from the Stockholm concert in 1976.
The original album is still available but I think it makes sense to opt for the extended version. Alternatively, if you don’t want Stockholm, the famous support performance for the Rolling Stones, Live At Leeds is now available as a separate album.
