Welcome To My Blog

Thanks for checking the blog out... Hope it offers something a bit different every now & again. Though I come from a pseudo - Mod background (Soul & Ska in particular), I have a diverse taste in music & hope my varied posts will reflect this.

Cheers Skamanc .... I'm not after your undying gratitude, but please leave your thoughts, comments & opinions on the posts & content. I regularly up- & download material, plus buy and trade items. As such, if I have inadvertently "trodden on anyone's toes" in posting anything then please let me know & accept my apologies. Also please support the artists involved & remember that the blog is merely a pointer toward these various downloads, which are stored elsewhere. Legally, any downloads should not be retained for more than a week. So now I've told you the legal bit !

ROLLING STONES : Beggar's Breakfast

Here's a reasonable Stones bootleg that's been sitting here as a drafted up post to be for some time. I've also found the "missing" Bastard's Banquet file (Beggar's Banquet out-takes) & this'll be reposted asap.

For Martin, Pauli & Exeter.

14/9/11 : Link problem sorted out & file can now be dowl#nloaded as intended...

1) Gimme Shelter - early mix with Keith Richards on vocals

2) Brown Sugar - early mix with different lead guitar by Mick Taylor

3) Stop Breaking Down - early mix with different Mick Jagger lead vocal

4) Shake Your Hips - Rehearsal take recorded in Montreaux, March 1972

5) Loving Cup (Version 1) - Early version recorded at the same session as 'Honky Tonk Woman', June 1969, first session with Mick Taylor

6) Loving Cup (Version 2) - The same song, recorded two years later, finally appeared on 'Exile on Main Street' but this is a very different early mix with different vocals and much longer in duration.

7) Shine a Light - Again, a different mix with different vocals.

8) I Ain't Lying - A song work-out/improvisation which was never developed any further and therefore remains unreleased. Recorded circa 1970

9) Sway - early mix from acetate

10) Sweet Virginia - early mix with additional keyboards and no backing vocals

11) I Don't Care - same as 'I Ain't Lying'

12) Sympathy for the Devil - An excerpt from the recording sessions, as seen in parts in Jean Luc Godards "One Plus One" film, March 1968

13) Tell Me - alternate version, never released, late 1963

14) Rice Crispies Jingle - advertisement for radio use only, recorded in the USA, 1964

15) You Can't Judge a Book By the Cover - An excerpt from the first ever Rolling Stones studio session, October 1962, taken from a battered 4 song acetate, played on the radio by proud owner, Chris Jagger
