REVIEW:

Here we have Mayflower s version of the Stones Black And Blue sessions. The first disc presents alternate takes from Black and Blue album, the second disc outtakes.

We do start with Hot Stuff which is the instrumental first version with Ollie Brown and Stu on percussions easily discernible on the left channel, followed by Hand Of Fate with distinctive guitar solos by Wayne Perkins. From late 74 Musicland Studios sessions comes Cherry Oh Baby that features Nicky Hopkins on organ; this version of Memory Motel comes from Munich 75 sessions and is an instrumental version with both Wayne Perkins and Harvey Mandel on guitars and Billy Preston on synthesizer while Hey Negrita is the early take of the song inspired (or written) by Ron Wood that lasts 11.40 minutes. Back in time for this early shot of Melody where we find Billy Preston on vocals and piano.   On Fool To Cry early version we get Nicky Hopkins on piano and synthesizer and no backing vocals, but this is the version with finished lyrics; as for this version of Crazy Mama it comes from Rotterdam like Melody and we do get different lyrics too. After these 8 tracks we do get some different versions   coming from Sucking in the Seventies which featured actually remixes (edits) of Hot Stuff, Crazy Mama and Fool To Cry. Nothing new on this compilation of outtakes but a quite enjoyable set of different versions that could be interesting for beginners.
