Liner notes:
The New Musical Express, the British music weekly with the largest circulation, staged a series of concerts in the sixties featuring artists who topped their popularity polls. The concerts, known as ‘The Poll Winners’ Concerts’, were all held in Wembley. This two CD set documents the second to last Poll Winner Concert held on April 11, 1965 at Wembley Stadium. An edited version of this concert was screened on ABC TV and networked throughout the UK on April 18 of that year. This set was compiled from the soundtrack of the unedited master.

Notes from David Chance:
The back of the package says “The cream of British music as chosen by the readers of The New Musical Express presented in concert on April 11, 1965 at Wembley Stadium.”

The cover has a small photograph of The Beatles performing at this concert. The liner has stock photos of The Rolling Stones, Donovan, The Animals, The Kinks, and Them. This is the first appearance of a live recording by Them (their first BBC radio studio session was in March 1965 — see Bluesology, which would technically be the first “live” recordings, albeit from the studio…this is in front of a concert audience). As per the liner notes, this is a soundboard-quality recording.

Them are introduced by Jimmy Savile, who says (jokingly) that they have “just finished a tour with the Lutten (sp?) Girls Choir and will have to leave the country very, very shortly.” The band takes a moment to soundcheck and then launches into “Here Comes The Night”. The freshness of the song to the band may, perhaps, be heard when, after the first chorus, Van begins the first verse a moment too soon, quickly catches himself, begins again and carries the song to it’s finish wonderfully.

There are the immediate strains of “Turn On Your Love Light”, with Van making some “noises” and tearing into the song. As the tempo speeds up, Alan Henderson (?) begins stirring the audience by urging them to join along. The song then meanders in a psychedlic blues groove for a moment before it picks up tempo again and works out to a close. Jimmy Savile exits Them with a humorous comment on the brevity of the band’s name (“pretty soon we’ll have bands like ‘A’, and ‘The'”).

Hello and welcome to JEMS’ Foxes In The Boxes, the third and, sad to say, final volume in a series featuring unreleased studio sessions from the Rolling Stones, circa 1979-85. Based on our research, along with the expertise of Stones sessionologist N, who helped us sort through these tapes, we believe the Foxes In The Boxes series offers a small trove of previously uncirculated material, along with upgrades and a few familiar outtake favorites from new source tapes. All of the outtakes, alternate mixes and takes found on Volume Three have never been released.

The series is titled Foxes In The Boxes in homage to its source: boxes of in-house cassette tapes obtained by JEMS from someone “on the inside” of a major record label in the ’70s and ’80s. It is also a rhyming nod to the bootleg Static In the Attic (Midnight Beat), which mined the same sessions for kindred material and to which we believe Foxes makes a worthy companion.

Some tracks in the series have been previously rumored to exist, some are wholly new finds, while others improve upon previously circulating versions. There are a few frustrating fragments, too, but what’s presented here is exactly what was on the tapes, which were seemingly meant to capture and present in-progress status of Stones sessions and to preserve ideas for future consideration. With that said, let’s go track by track through Volume Three:

Indian Girl: Shorter than any previously known version in circulation. The spoken line, “Mr. Gringo, my father he ain’t no Che Guevara” is missing and the take also features fewer horn overdubs.

Emotional Rescue: Again, shorter take than any previously known version. Distinctive and somewhat strange mix with much more guitar, keyboards and backing vocals. Also features an echoey percussion effect at the start not heard on any other mix.

No Use In Crying: Yet another new, shorter version compared to whatís in circulation. This is an edit of an early mix (before the piano overdub was added), which moves the line ìcome on sugarî earlier in the song because some of the falsetto vocals have been cut.

I Think Iím Going Mad: Listed on the tape under the slightly different title ìThink I’m Going Mad.î Yet another edit of an early version, which already has the saxophone in the intro but is still lacking the piano overdub. Several small changes in the first verse before the line, “All the highs and lows don’t mean a thing to me, don’t give a damn.î

Where The Boys Go: Different lead vocal from Mick on a take that has the male background vocals already in place, but not the girls’ backing chorus at the end. The guitar solo is also unedited unlike the album.

Summer Romance: Another alternate lead vocal on an uncirculated take that lacks the third guitar which normally begins in at 0:06.

Undercover Of The Night: A different, shorter mix, especially the opening of the song, which is totally unique to other mixes in circulation.

We Had It All: Cover of the Troy Seals and Donny Fritts song, first released by Waylon Jennings in 1973. Different lead vocal from the released version, but seemingly the same take as previously bootlegged versions of the song.

She Was Hot: Keyboard-heavy long mix, very similar to the version first leaked on WYSP FM Philadelphia in 1983 and later uploaded to the It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll Stones internet forum some time ago, but lacking the double-tracked vocals found on those, which presumably makes it an earlier mix of the alternate take.

Bonus Track

Keep It Cool: The remarkable 20+ minute version posted to IORR by Bkeys in response to the release of the shorter version of Foxes Vol. One. His original was slightly off speed; here it is pitched-adjusted by Goody and remastered by JEMS to make it just a little bit better.

JEMS offers its thanks to N, who helped us sort through the tapes and provided invaluable insight in ascertaining what we had. The song-by-song notes above are culled from N’s essential contributions. Pitch adjustments come courtesy of Goody, who lent us his keen ear and his unwavering commitment to A440. Thank you, Goody. SkipKid68 also chimed in with valuable feedback, so thanks to him, too. The much-appreciated official cover art is courtesy of ethiessen1. A shout out to Bkeys for releasing ìKeep It Coolî from his tapes. We hope there are more to come. And last but not least, kudos to mjk5510, who came on board at the start and helped finish the project to get it into your hands.

We hope Foxes In The Boxes was as much fun for you to listen to as it was for us to compile.

01. PRODIGAL SON (written by Wilkins)
02. LET IT ROCK (written by Chuck Berry)
06. JUST MY IMAGINATION (written by the Temptations)

According to Bill Wyman, the 2nd show at Oshawa 1979 (which this torrent features) was a lot better than the 1st one.
Which makes me very grateful that there’s no good sounding recordings of the 1st show (only a piss poor recording exists of the 1st show)
Because….this 2nd show at Oshawa is a complete riot – it’s impossible to be “serious” when listening to the performance Rolling Stones and New Barbarians gave that afternoon.
The whole show is filled with mistakes from the band – Ronnie and Keith is obviously drunk as skunks – and unlike now……Jagger is drunk as well! (no need to even mention John Belushi – who introduces the show…..he’s in another dimension)

Just listen to “Respectable” – if you like to hear “the greatest R&R band in the world” being “the most out-of-it R&R band in the world”

It’s interesting to know that during “Jumpin Jack Flash” – the bass player of New Barbarians (Stanley Clarke) joined Rolling Stones.
And – due to recent published photos; he also starred on “Miss You” !
That’s quite unique. Not many people have been allowed on-stage with the Rolling Stones during the years, apart from vocals.
I would not blame Bill Wyman if he didn’t bother to be the only bass player on stage that night. I wouldn’t even blame him for leaving the entire show, and have a quiet cup of tea instead.

I’m uploading this bootleg, as it is the BEST source for this show. And…there’s a *new* release from “Godfather records” which feature the Rolling Stones part of this show. I haven’t heard that “Godfather” bootleg – but as always….Godfather copy other bootlegs, and then tweaken the sound, with EQ
So save your money – and get the best source of this must-have show here.
