REVIEW:

This release from Eat a Peach presents some of the outtakes that have recently surfaced from the late 70s-early 80s sessions, at first released on the Bird s Vault vinyl versions. Packaging is great with lots of information on these tracks, including a mistake on the alleged recording of All About You, this is not the instrumental version recorded in late 77 (still unissued) also known as Train Song but the late 79 guide vocals version featuring both Richards and Jagger s vocal contributions.

These tracks come from the vinyl version of Bird s Vault, as admitted inside, and features also an (arranged) essay by Rolling Stone columnist Jonathan Perry written in the inner parts in capital blocks focussing on Some Girls sessions, out of which we take:

Bowed but unbroken from their personal/professional setbacks and growing scepticism about their relevance on a newly mapped musical landscape, the Stones on the late 70s and early 80s were still, as we can hear from the slew of tracks laid down at Pathe Marconi Studios in France a creatively viable working band with its ear for the beat of the street trying out fresh (or at least freshly borrowed) ideas, Mick and Keith constantly reworking and other wise steering the reliable Stones sound in new directions fashioned from old sessions (blues, country, soul, reggae). Publicly Jagger and Richards dismissed Punk s insurrection in interviews, but it clearly shook them from their jaded slumber and privately the felt a sharp sting not unlike the twin telecaster guitar bite that ultimately fuelled their brazen and brilliant retort 78 s Some Girls sound, a fast flashy distillation of guitars and attitude that remains their definitive Ron Wood era work.

Slowly mastered, warmly shrouded Show Me Your Workings will nestle nicely alongside your other outtake collection, we should not have to wait too much longer for more- end of quote.

Finally a note on sound rating, since Outsider Bird recent compact releases present the best sounding ultimate versions of these tracks, I deemed   it fair to lower by half a point the rating on this review; also this is the first time ever that on a review I find the two discs having exactly the same length up to the second, a remarkable coincidence.
