StonesArchive.comThe Rolling Stones have released the fifth installment of their series of officially authorized bootlegs. Light the Fuse: A Bigger Bang Tour captures an intimate club show in August 2005 at Toronto's The Phoenix that kicked off the band's tour in support of its latest studio effort, A Bigger Bang. The 15-song set features The Stones road testing four A Bigger Bang cuts, as well as serving up some classic tunes and a few select covers.
Among the highlights from the set are renditions of Otis Redding's "Mr. Pitiful" and Bob Marley's "Get Up, Stand Up," plus a version of The Stones' "19th Nervous Breakdown" that features a revamped arrangement.
In a promotional video for the album, guitarist Keith Richards talks fondly about playing in the Canadian city. "There's a mutual respect, I think. I always felt that about Toronto," he says. "It was an easy place to rehearse in and it's always been a good town to us."
As for performing in such a small venue to start off the trek, Richards points out, "It's quite important, because once you get on the big stage, you have to exaggerate and everything has to be amplified more. The hard gigs are the small ones. You've got no props, no nothing. You just have to do what you do face to face."
Light the Fuse is available only as a digital download -- it can be purchased now at the Google Play music store and at StonesArchiveStore.com.
