For those who don't recall, on the Stones' "40 Licks" tour in 2002-03 they took the unique approach of playing multiple venues of varying sizes in selected cities. The largest cities in each country would typically get performances in a stadium (where they would play their greatest-hits set), an arena (which would feature primarily "hits" with a handful of deep tracks), and a club or small theater. The latter were the most fun of the tour, because the Stones essentially picked a setlist to entertain themselves -- these shows often featured guests and unique performances of rarely-played songs.

My favorites of the 2002-03 club shows were Stockholm and Chicago; and the nod may go to the latter. This show has a great setlist, first-ever performances of songs, special guests, and an inspired performance. If you are a Stones fan and don't have this recording, this is a must-have.

There are at least 2 other common sources of this show, but I like this one best. A friend recorded this with CSB mikes about 25 feet back on the right side, and the sound was perfect. The crowd noise is minimal (except when Bono came onstage unexpectedly).

One wart: After EQ'ing, breaking tracks, burning it, and deleting the originals, I found one spot of brief diginoise -- during the break between "Start Me Up" and "Live With Me" (tracks 2 and 3 on disc 1). Since there weren't any other problems and the diginoise didn't interfere with anything, I left it alone.
