REVIEW:

This release cannot properly be considered a bootleg since the 50 years copyright for it expired over 2 years ago and are now public domain , so it is officially marketed by 1960s Records (www.1960s.london) which has an extensive online catalogue of good looking vinyl release from many 60s bands. Actually the 4 songs included here were released on a 300 copies bootleg LP of the same name (RS Vinyl Product) in the early 80s and on cd on   Time Trip Vol.4 (Gold Standard 239407), Paris Match (SCO 15), Brian Jones All Those Years Ago (VGP 079) and Ready Steady Stones (VGP 248). From sleeve notes : by 1967 Sunday Night At The London Palladium was  TV show essential for family viewing. How would the Stones manage to maintain their bad boy reputation whilst still promoting their latest single? Easy, at the end of each show all artists used to stand on top of a rotating roundabout smiling and waving to the audience. Not the Stones, though: I thought we d gone far enough by doing the show claimed Jagger. Anyway, Andrew and I had a great row about it, which made an excellent front page in the Daily Mirror and I was very pleased with that.   That would be Andrew Loog Oldham, Stones manager and media manipulator supreme. The only reason we did the show was because it was a good national plug- anyone who thought we were changing out image to suit a family audience was mistaken. The way the band looked was equally divisive. In the January 28th NME issue a fan, Sue Baxter, acclaimed the Stones appearance: Brilliant! Who else but them would dare to appear in the gear they wore?.  However reader Tony Hughes from Glamorgan was less impressed: in very bad taste…they could have made an effort to look reasonably respectable. Coming a poor third to outrage and appearance was the music:  Connection was an audacious opening track, featuring Keith Richard on backing vocals, the song being sung by Jagger, then followed a version of Ruby Tuesday with live vocals over a prepared backing track. Side 2 opens with a radically different arrangement of It s All Over Now, especially recorded at Olympic Studios and finally an ebullient Let s Spend The Night Together, again with live vocals. Packaging is extremely accurate with a proper front cover photo and on the back cover there is a sticker saying: We have made the best we possibly could with these admittedly lo-fi yet important historically recordings that were recorded directly off air. Soundwise these tracks are obviously in mono, but due to their significance and to the great packaging (that makes this ep look very similar to a genuine 60s record) this release can be considered excellent.


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