REVIEW:

Here is the fourth volume of DAC’s collection of the Art Collins Tapes which is dedicated to the Some Girls sessions from late 1977. Most of these takes come from the same session that produced dozens of outtakes that have been on the bootlegs market since many years, but there are outtakes that mark their first appearance of a different version, so the value of this release immediately increases. Tracks no. 1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, and 13 are takes that were never heard before. Let’s check them all, the first surprise is Just My Imagination which is a different outtake from the early vocal version present on Bird's Vault Vol. 2 (OBR 93CD038) and stereo.

The next three songs Miss You, When You're Gone and Little T & A are the same as those found on Bird's Vault Vol. 2 (OBR93CD038), but the sound quality here is much better. You Don't Have To Go and Shame Shame Shame were previously released on Paris Results Vol. 2 (OBR 305 CD019) but also on Place Pigalle (VGP 362) and Paris Results (DAC 103) but there the tracks were sourced from an acetate not in very good conditions with scratches heard throughout, this time instead they come in a much clearer sound. Better sounding is also When You’re Gone (Redeyes) which was first appeared on Bird’s Vault vol.2 (OBR 93CD038). Then Stay Where You Are, Brown Leaves and Black Limousine are the same as those found on Sheep-Dip-Blues (DAC 104), but there they were mono; this time instead they are here in stereo for the first time, moreover the length of these songs is longer than those previously available.

Lies take 2 is another track never released before like Blues Jam; greatly improved too is this version of Black Limousine if compared with the Sheep Dip Blues (DAC 104) version as well as Little T&A take 2 which debuted on Birds’s Vault Vol.2 (OBR93CD038).  

Everlasting Is My Love (A Different Kind) was not included in The Incredible Art Collins Tapes Vol.3 and has now been added. Although its length is the same, I'm A Little Mixed Up from the Undercover sessions that can also be found on Disc Two of The Incredible Art Collins Tapes Vol.2 called Discovery Bar, is here in better shape and since there was room on this disc the label decided to add it as bonus track.

All songs here are presented as high-quality stereo soundboard, this work captures the studio work feel of the Stones from over 40 years ago adding a new dimension to the famous Paris 77 sessions.

This release which includes a large number outtakes that appear here for the first time is a must-have item for all collectors with wonderful content that can be said to be the highlight of Art Collins Tapes and that has been separated from all the other tracks, rightfully devoting a whole single disc to them. Had anyone the need to find something not up to such high standard it will be possible to consider artwork a bit dull as there are so many great shots from those sessions that could be used as front cover instead of the Some Girls album ad.
