REVIEW:

Here is another collection of tracks coming from the prolific 1983 sessions including unreleased tracks. The tracks from 1 to 7 are new coming from an unidentified 8 tracks Paris private studio from October to November 82; originally titled Phara Leopard Tape. These are the earliest demo recordings for the Undercover album, it seems that they only featured Mick, Keith and Charlie. At this stage we already find Wanna Hold You, and the country version of She Was Hot, then there is another version of Can t Find Love; this is a comprehensive new source with regards to the version on Think You Like It, here all instruments can be heard, like the three versions of  What I Am saying Is True. From the proper sessions we got the vocals on In Your Hand, while tracks 8 to 15 are sample instruments of unreleased songs for the Undercover album, each of which is about 30 seconds long, but in stereo with an excellent recording quality, the full songs have been unearthed since these snippets came out. Track 15 is the first version of All About You, originally titles The Train Song, that features Jagger (also present in background vocals on Wanna Hold You first take).

Track 16 is the Undercover of the Night WYSP radio version and the initial version credited. Track 17 is She Was Hot full long version, which was missing from the other  Undercover related DAC discs so far. Keep It Cool here is the long version of the bonus instrumental included in the Foxes In The Boxes series, but it was not re-mastered by JEMS, here however the dropout due to a slightly earlier pitch and large tape degradation from the original source has been corrected, contrary to other releases of this long version though this one here ends abruptly. It has just been re-recorded in a natural state that has not been subjected to EQ or compressor processing at all. This release is a collector essential new title, compiled with rare new sound source and an unexpected great take. Due to the fact that many complete outtakes have seen the light of day we can expect a more comprehensive release from DAC in the near future.
