REVIEW:

Out of the blue a special gift for Stones fans that appreciate the band’s blues roots, in this case from the RCA 1978 summer sessions that saw the band replay many original blues anthems ; in fact as stated in this project’s liner notes August 27th, 1978 was ‘Jimmy Reed Day' in the RCA Studios in Los Angeles, since the band recorded many takes of ‘My First Plea' of which four versions have been circulating. However two 'new' versions have been located which, when compared to old tapes and uploads like rskinnos box 12 posted on IORR message board and some older cds, like One Night with Tallahassee Lassie (EXR 19-20).

The following infos of the 4 known tracks are taken from The Complete Works website.

http://www.nzentgraf.de/books/tcw/works1.htm :

- Jimmy Reed Jam -instrumental blues jam

- My First Plea I    (Jimmy Reed) -take 13, 4.14

- My First Plea II   (Jimmy Reed) -take 15, 4.53

- My First Plea III (Jimmy Reed) -take 32, 5.33 (All known versions lasted 5.20)

- My First Plea IV   (Jimmy Reed) -take 33, 3.51

 

The new versions are close to number I and II, Keith Richards vocals and the length of both tracks are absolutely identical, but the piano parts are different. The quality is as good as a tape can be, though. It is really hard to say which take numbers are correct, but most likely:  

My First Plea #1 [Blue Tape Transfer]

This version is very close to #2, but has no piano at the very first seconds, the regular piano part starts later, from 0:52 onwards. I think it's a take pre to number 13.

My First Plea #2 [One Night With Tallahassee Lassie]

This version is take 13, known as 'My First Plea I' with piano in the very first seconds, the regular piano starts earlier than on #1, continuously from 0.21 onwards.

My First Plea #3 [Blue Tape Transfer]

This version is very close to #4, but has no 'honky tonk' piano part from 1.51 to 2.10. It might be take 14.

My First Plea #4 [One Night With Tallahassee Lassie]

This version is take 15, known as 'My First Plea II' and has a 'honky tonk' piano part from 1.51 to 2.10

My First Plea #5 [One Night With Tallahassee Lassie]

This version is take 32, known as 'My First Plea III'

My First Plea #6 [BOX 12, dehissed]

This version is take 33, known as 'My First Plea IV'

Jimmy Reed Jam #7 (instrumental) [One Night With Tallahassee Lassie]

This jam might have been the inspiration to do all the other versions of 'My First Plea', here three dropouts have been fixed.

It is now possible to enjoy 7 Jimmy Reed tracks from a very special day in 1978. The downloaded is provided with a tasty artwork for fabs that still love to burn discs.
