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.

Some of Weir’s most beloved songs in their embryonic stage. “C Shuffle” is an early development of “Walk In The Sunshine.” The unknown song is nice and is unique to these reference recordings.

-This source is 81+ minutes. It is tracked for two shorter cdrs, but longer media, ie. 90 min cdrs or overburn can make this a
\one disc source.
-the only similar source at etree, shnid12618 is 1:14:23.960 (196860636 samples)in length, this source is 1:21:39.680 (216075888 samples)
in length. I did not deduce what was missing because upon inspection i found the tracks for that shnid range from 64 kiBs mp3 to 177kiBs
OGG, both lossy formats.
-this was confirmed, infact, to be 11 6 1968 by respectable traders.
-Thank Todd Evans for being a grate trader!
