REVIEW:

The Paris sessions have been among the most productive in the Stones career, especially the first ones held at the end of 1977 and at the beginning of 1978 which originated Some Girls, the album of the band’s return to basic rock with some attempts to other musical genres. On her last photo book Jo Wood, Ron’s former wife claimed that when they were working in a studio every day the Stones engineers gave each band member a cassette with the best of the previous day’s session and that she still has all those cassettes stored in some huge boxes, we can imagine how much unheard material is there waiting to be published   by a bootleg label! Meanwhile we have to rely on what is being released and lately the Mayflower label has put out its best of version covering those session and claiming that Discs One and Two come from October 10, 1977, stuff better known as More Fast Numbers, while the remaining three Discs contain the sessions from January 5, 1978. It is not exactly so, as can be seen in the sources section. Unfortunately there are lots of mistakes on track names , that have made difficult locate the sessions hen they were recorded, many thanks to NZ from The Complete Works who helped on the hardest identifications, which have been: on Disc Two Track 9 titled Someone Know that is in fact What Gives You The Right, on Disc Four And I Know which is Never Let Her Go and Lucky In Love that is Do You Get Enough (which became Don't Be a Stranger on SG Deluxe) and on Disc Five Follow You and Feel No Pain No More that are respectively the instrumental version of It’s Cold Down There and Piano Instrumental, these coming from the Compass Point, Nassau sessions from early 1979 thus after the release of Some Girls.

Apart from these mishaps there are anyway interesting tracks in here, let’s mention:

on Disc Three 3 versions of Fiji Jim, there are 2 different version of the instrumental I Can’t Help It, the last one Track 13, being the known one with additional acoustic guitar added, while Track 12 is a previously unknown mono take. Then there are two takes of Up Against The Wall #2 previously unknown to me (the first 3.56 long, the second 6.02). Golden Caddy #3 here is in fact Broken Leaves #2.

On Disc Four we find 2 versions of Disco Musik (4.33 and 5.16 in lenght respectively).

Packaging is peculiar, instead of using a 6 disc Fatboy case it was decided to use a double disc jewel case and a 4 discs Fatboy case with their own artwork and wrap everything in a cardboard slip case.

For sure this is not the definitive version of the Some Girls outtakes but this is an intriguing set that may arise the interest of die hard collectors.


The best toys are the ones that are both educational and multi-purposeful.
