The Rolling Stones - 1968-1972 - Trident Mixes
(Studio FLAC)

Lineage
Studio -> acetate -> bootleg LP -> PC -> you. LP -> PC transfer made using Music Hall MMF-7 turntable, Ortofon OM20 cartridge, Adcom GLP-565 preamp, and Roland UA-1G USB analog to digital converter. Vinyl surface noise was mostly removed using ClickRepair software, but some remains. Acetates are very fragile and easily damaged. Other software used included Adobe Audition, CD Wave, and foobar2000.

01. Jiving Sister Fanny (alt. take).
A different take was officially released on "Metamorphosis."

02. I'm Going Down (alt. mix).
Officially released with a different mix on "Metamorphosis."

03. I Don't Know Why (alt. mix).
Officially released with a different mix on "Metamorphosis." This version is also shorter than on Metamorphosis.

04. Hamburger to Go

05. Downtown Suzie (alt. mix).
Officially released with a different mix on "Metamorphosis." LP has a skip which I have repaired.

06. Blood Red Wine

07. Travelling Man

08. Family (alt. take).
An alt. take was officially released on "Metamorphosis." This is the inferior take.

09. Still a Fool.
Five more seconds at the start than VGP's version!

10. Family (alt. mix).
Officially released with a different mix on "Metamorphosis."

11. Leather Jacket (inst.)

12. Dancing in the Light (alt. mix, inst.).
Officially released with ~2010 vocals on "Exile on Main Street (Rarities Edition)."

13. Potted Shrimp (inst.)

14. Aladdin Story (alt. mix, inst.).
Officially released with ~2010 vocals on "Exile on Main Street (Rarities Edition)." I prefer this one.

15. I Was Just a Country Boy (inst.)

16. Who Am I

17. Trident Jam (inst.)

18. Memo from Turner (bonus track, alt. mix).
Not on the LP but added to fill space here. A different take was officially released on "Metamorphosis."

Notes:
Between 1968 and 1972 the Rolling Stones recorded numerous songs which were not released at the time. Some were cut into acetates with "Trident Studios" labels, presumably for band members or other insiders to listen to. In the late 1970s, a bootleg LP called "Trident Mixes" compiled these acetates. Sound quality is excellent plus, but the vinyl has lots of surface noise. Later, the same material was released by VGP as CD1 of "Hillside Blues," and by DAC as "Trident Mixes," using the original LP artwork. The VGP source is apparently from tape rather than acetate, as there is no surface noise, but the source is hissy in places and sometimes lacking in bass. DAC uses a different source with no hiss, but incredibly there is some talking in the background, apparently from people playing the acetates while talking too close to the record player! A few tracks have also appeared in quite good quality from tape sources, not acetate, on "The Black Box," but I prefer these versions over all others.

This is a transfer from an original "Trident Mixes" bootleg LP.

After the Rolling Stones left Decca/London to form their own record label, Decca/London released some of the songs on the 1975 album "Metamorphosis," using different mixes or takes. None of the songs are exactly the same as the acetate versions. Mick Jagger added vocals, among other things, to two of the instrumentals and released them on the 2010 album "Exile on Main Street (Rarities Edition)."
