    Faith in set determination courtesy of the Fourth Estate is sealed by the reviewer from the campus newspaper of the University of New Mexico.  In a feat rarely achieved in all of the known STP writing, his lengthy review mentions by name all 15 songs played that evening in the sweltering basketball arena known as The Pit.  We know that his song registry is true because it corresponds perfectly with the complete Albuquerque audience tape that surfaced once this research got underway.

Daily Lobo: “Right off – when Jagger hit the stage with his purple and silver outfit, purple eyeshadow, two pink stars pasted to each temple just behind the eye, obscenely sucking on a lemon and discarding the parts one at a time, and hopping across the right half of the stage so the glitter in his hair would fly off leaving a sparkling star shower behind him – I knew I was going to enjoy the show.”


Washington Post: “The crowd is hot, but so is the unairconditioned arena. The acoustics are poor, and there is no way to mount the huge reflecting mirror...a Chip Monck innovation that bounces light onto the stage. It’s going to be a bummer.”
