The imperishable Rolling Stones celebrate their 60th birthday as a band this
year. Unreal, really, unreal. Many things will happen to mark this milestone. Like
this ready-to-release live album.
Back in 1977 Jagger & co played two secret gigs in Canada.
I never understood the term secret. Something that always confused me. How
can a gig be secret when there are people in the venue? No secret for the audience present, otherwise they wouldn’t have been there. Right?
Whatever. The registration of the best moments of the two club gigs at the legendary Mocambo Club (300 cap.) in Toronto in 1977 lands next week, on 13 May.
Ahead of it these two tasters.
– TUMBLING DICE –
– HOT STUFF –
Of course, not long after the two concerts, a bootleg saw the light (the darkness) of the day (the night). It contained only a part of the set and was recorded by their soundman Eddie Kramer with the Rolling Stones Mobile Studio. So it wasn’t that illegal and probably done with The Stones permission. Could it be that these recordings are used for the upcoming, official release? We’ll see/hear next week.
