The Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder: Boston Garden, Boston MA

Michael Lydon, Fusion, November 1972

THE ROLLING Stones were magnificent in Boston. We arrived at a packed Boston Garden high and hopeful for an evening of visual thrills and musical excitement; on our way home we were in a state of exhilarated and oblivious, having whooped and jumped and laughed and sung our way into a thirst that only two quarts of orange juice could quench. WOW! "You didn't have to love me like you did, but you did, and I thank you," sang Sam and Dave, and I sing it to The Stones. They were out on stage playing for the pure pleasure of it, and they played howling fine.
