REVIEW:

The fourth volume in the series presents outtakes from 1985 through 1993, the first six discs devoted to Dirty Work sessions then the next three on Steel Wheels and the remaining 6 on 90s sessions. The first disc starts with 7 acoustic tracks followed by 4 songs featuring the whole band. There is some problem on Track 1 that skips and stops on   many players around 1.35, 2.20 and 3.30 minutes into the songs. Disc Two also features full band session tracks in excellent shape, with special mention of the great ballad from Keith Richards Talk Is Cheap (nothing musically akin to the solo album of the same name) while Stick It Where It Hurt is one of the few Stones tracks with Ron Wood on lead vocals like You Can t Cut The Mustard # 1 (early version of Had It With   You); version #21 has Keith Richards on vocals and it shows the temperatures during those sessions with the improvised lyrics “You are just a Brenda” that showed his angst against Jagger. Disc three opens with a reggae tune sung by Richards plus classic outtakes like Crushed Pearl, Strictly Memphis. Disc Four has another reggae song written by Gregory Isaacs- If I Don t Have You, sung by Richards and Jagger one verse each. Unfortunately the first 9 tracks of this disc are in mono, being quite possible that the culprit was the owner of the original tape who decided to release it that way. Cut Your Throat is a fantastic blues track featuring Ian Stewart on piano and it is a pity it cannot be heard in stereo and better quality. Stu shines also on You Can t Cut The Mustard   #4 and its subsequent evolution Had It With You #1 with Ron Wood on vocals. Interesting on Disc Five is the very first take of Harlem Shuffle featuring spoken words by someone else playing a duet with Jagger (Bobby Womack?);   on Baby You re Too Much For Me #3 Bobby Keys is on sax. The highlight of Disc Six is (Sending out) Invitations a 16 minutes long soul epic credited to Ron Wood and Bobby Womack and sung by the latter with Don Covay (although some of the occasional falsetto remind Jagger s); this song was art of a side project called The Podium which unfortunately was never officially released. That soul predisposition is evident also on For Your Previous Love, an Impressions cover that   was also recorded by Otis Redding and that was part of the songs rehearsed during the Steel Wheels sessions that is featured in two versions on Disc Eight. We got here also Mixed Emotions# 4 , which is a vinyl rip from 2016 (not 2018 as stated on the booklet)   The Studio Album Collection 1971-2016 that has a different mix. However the grounds covered in these sessions is quite varied with heavy tones on blues too as can be heard on takes like Fancy Man Blues on Disc Seven, Cook Cook Blues, Wish I Never Met You and Hellhound On My Trail on Disc Nine, as well as country on Blinded By Love and pure rock on many of the other tracks or catchy like Terrifying.

From Disc Eleven onwards we delve into the Voodoo Lounge sessions which from mid April through mid May 93 were in the preparatory form at first with just Jagger and Richards who were later joined by Charlie Watts on April 29th while Ron Wood was recording the Unplugged album with Rod Stewart in Los Angele, therefore the drums heard on the first tracks were played by Jagger. These are but demo sessions of a weird number of songs like Goodbye To Love, originally released by the Carpenters in 1972; o the other hand there are also improvised tunes like Alteration Boogie sung by Richards with its continuous allusions to the Prince of Wales seem to make Jagger burst into laughter; Make It Now#1 with its catchy refrain lasts for over 9 minutes and is the highlight of disc Eleven, with Slips Away that is Keith strumming his guitar looking for inspiration for 16 minutes, while on disc Twelve Get You Hands Off #1 clocks in at 6.35 minutes mainly sung by Richards but with Jagger popping up occasionally in the background. From Discs Thirteen and Fourteen were recorded at Ron Wood s house in Ireland from July-August 93, a bunch of tracks collectors are familiar from the Voodoo Stew/Voodoo Brew/Voodoo Residue bootleg box sets. Particularly interesting are many tracks having lots of percussions like Zulu, Samba, Alright Charlie and Another CR, none of these were never released on Voodoo Lounge nor on any of the following albums. This is the most experimental version of the late Stones and it is a pity these tracks never saw officially the light of day. These were tomes the band was choosing the new bass player so on many tracks it is not Darryl Jones but Pino Palladino or Doug Wimbish. Interesting on Disc Fourteen are the 4 tracks called Untitled, the first is Hold On You that lasts 5.57, the second is actually Holetown Prison which is an early version of Suck On The Jugular, the third is a kind of reggae-ish lasting 3.45, while the last one is Baby You re Too Much. The version of Alright Charlie that ends the disc is just a faded version of the previous take. Track listing of this disc is really messed up on the booklet.

The last disc shows all Voodoo Lounge sessions songs with Keith Richards on vocals cut in Dublin during November and early December 93. There are many mistakes on the accompanying booklet especially on songs names and versions, however this box can be considered a good release due to the great sound quality of all the tracks included.
