Rob Bowman recalls seeing The Rolling Stones at Toronto's El Mocambo 45 years ago

Good catch Cristiano! Pretty much verbatim what he described at the live stream last month - I guess when you experience something that big to you, the story becomes ingrained, as it did with my meeting with the boys all those years ago. I’ll be looking for him at Hyde Park!

What has been high position in UK and US Charts, and what about worldwide sales up to now?!

UK chart: #24, 1 week on the Top 200
US chart: #61, 1 week on the Top 200

Sales: 15k in the US, 3.5k in the UK, 8k in Japan, worldwide around 50-70k.

Not too bad for a product that is quite expensive relative to the competition.

Sadly just like I said before, it was released about 20-30 years late, in 2022 only the most loyal die hard Stones fans could care about a live show from 45 years ago, general audience could care less about it.

Quite right...but even the selling the CD over $40 is a bit ridiculous. It's like they acknowledge they're not going to sell to the masses, "it's only for the die-hard's so we may as well make it a 'boutique' product".

Yeah, I'd like to know what went into the initial decision of not releasing this instead of LYL. (I know I'll get a little hate for that, but whatever).

Someone probably thought something like, "you know, we should include a few songs from El Mocambo, it really is quite good. Let's make a whole 'side' out of it on the new live album".

Maybe the whole club vibe was antithetical to the BIG stadium albums they were releasing in the 70s, so a whole club album wasn't even an option they thought of? And then after it was in the rear view mirror so no one thought about it seriously any more.

"Well, we gave them a whole side, what do they want a whole album of this?".

But the fans knew better.

Agreed, it is a bit of a head scratcher, though of course there's a "market" for both...considering how many people are excited or at least anticipating a possible release of "Paris '76" some day.

It seems there could have been room for LYL and El Mocambo but maybe once it was in the rear view as you said, and they started getting into new sessions that would become 'Some Girls', they maybe didn't want to revisit.

Well, as far as I can recall, El Mocambo happened specifically to "record some live tracks for the next live album". Maybe they got the idea to include some rarities ("for the old folks and diehards!") after the Knebworth gig (Route 66, Around And Around, Little Red Rooster, Let's Spend The Night Together were already played there) and (rightfully) decided that the Knebworth performances were not quite up to par (and marred by technical problems, too), leading to the decision to set up special shows to properly record the stuff they had in mind.

My possible explanation is that LYL was recorded and ready all, and maybe they felt that it was bit dull, so they wanted to spice it up a bit a year later by adding a few songs from El Mo. In the mid 70s live albums were only just beginning to emerge as big moneymaking product and probably they wanted their album to reflect their massive popularity by having a loud and huge crowd on it, so there probably was never a question of having the complete El Mo recording instead of LYL.

Yeah I think that's right, and then 5 years later you get Still Life, which is a continuation of capturing that 'huge crowd' vibe.

And who knows, maybe for the time that was the right decision? It's too bad that it took so long to ultimately get Elmo, but at least we're finally here.

Still waiting for mine in the post after ordering it about two weeks ago, and it's coming from Germany costing about £17 so will have to email them.

Didn't really look around much, but now found out I could order it from my local record store, Banquet Records in Kingston for even less, and pick it up within a couple of days.

I'm really itching to get this double CD as soon as possible now.
Will order it from Banquet Records and a friend of mine can have the one coming from Germany.

Nice unboxing.I am convinced the coloured vinyl sounds better than the black vinyl.
Let’s hope those with the power realise the satisfaction us diehards got with El Mocambo.And maybe we get the “Double door” in amazing quality if someone was recording it.

Looks like The Stones shop in Carnaby Street here in London Town is the cheapest price at 15 quid if you buy direct from the store, or another couple of quid to send within the UK.

Not bad at all.

Might take a trip and get a few CD's for me, and a couple of friends. smileys with beer

Yeah, the idea was to record some blues classics in a club gig to include in the live album.

Contrary to most people here, I always thought Love You Live was their best live album, by far. It was my first Stones record, the one that got me hooked.
For the first nine years of my life I walked the face of this planet knowing something was missing, until LYL came out and happened to land on my turntable... Took me ten seconds of Honky Tonk Women to know I have found just what I was looking for.
Can never forget that feeling. It's still there.

I agree , hearing Keith hitting those open G chords to start Honky Tonk and the roar of approval from the crowd and the announcer in French announcing the Stones and Ollie and Charlie's drum and it always gets me pumped .

Agreed on both counts.

This is the most rock and roll album I've ever heard. It's like the Stones' calling card. Everything you heard about the band is true and represented on this swarthy, alpha, swaggering release.
