Paul Jones and Tom McGuinness still tour as ‘The Manfreds’ and play a good selection of the original band’s blues material and solo work. A really entertaining night out and they come out to meet the fans in the interval and are very approachable. They are also celebrating their 60th anniversary this year.

If travelling by train, after passing through ticket barrier turn left and walk to taxi rank at end of station concourse. Over the road is a bar called ‘Dough’ . Great place to fuel up before the gig, great vibe, beer, cocktails, food. And a taxi to the gig just outside.

I thought I would resurrect this thread because I saw Paul Jones a few days ago, playing with the Manfreds, who are also celebrating 60 years soon. Paul is still remarkable for his age - he's 80 now - and that's not patronising because the physical demands of singing and his incredible harmonica playing can't get any easier. Tom McGuinness is a little older and played with Clapton

My son-in-law runs a bar called 'Dough' over the road from the taxi rank at Lime Street railway station. Great vibe, good beer and cocktails. As others have said, Anfield is a residential area with limited facilities so best to fuel-up in the city centre before a taxi ride to the gig. The local people are amongst the friendliest you will find anywhere.

Quotegotdablouse Thanks for sharing. I'm probably in the minority here but I can't say I find that period of great interest at least in terms of chasing down outtakes, energetic sure but pretty "generic"... I couldn't disagree more. The people who have these songs are probably amongst the older generation of fans who listened to these songs during that period. One issue

A Whiter Shade of Pale was one of the soundtracks to my teenage years, a song - like Homburg- where we sang along to the lyrics but didn't understand them. I still listen to Homburg regularly but Salty Dog, although my favourite, is just too sad and achingly beautiful. I saw Gary with the Rythmn Kings a few years ago, the first time Bill had been back to my home town since the Stones perf

Quotethomashanck Hi Elmo, i bought the bootleg with the ibc-songs in the early 80ies, i was fascinated from these songs, i loved "Diddley Daddy" and "Roadrunner", and now 40 years later i hear a song from the ibc-sessions ("Honey what's wrong") in stereo. Thanks to youtube there will be always new (old) stuff, i watch every day on youtube for something

So glad that someone else is interested in this very early stuff. Great to hear this song again in great quality, it's always been a favourite since I bought the original boot so many years ago. I've enjoyed going through this guy's other remixes, especially the other Stones songs. We need more of this, not endless 2021 concert recordings

My contribution was to try and add some weight to the contentions here that it is not Ronnie in the picture. I think I've probably done that. Further digging has unearthed this newspaper feature on the Stones in Wiltshire in 1964, including a review of their '3rd Pop Festival' appearance. One of the support acts is not complimentary about the Stones performance or their 'attit

Consider this - the photos of the gig are headed 'Aug 02 1964 Warminster, Lnd, U.K.' in the original post. Assuming 'Lnd' is an abbreviation of 'London' the question arises - is there a place in London called Warminster. There is a Warminster Road revealed by a Google search but nothing else. Zentgraf has this entry for the date of 2 August 1964- 640802A 2n

If the band tours without Charlie a precedent will be set - the money making machine rolls on notwithstanding the death of a founder member. So what happens if/when the same situation applies to Jagger or Richards, who would the others sign to take the place of the two most iconic figures in rock? Or would things be different then and, if so, why?

So it's a free-for- all then? We can all mess with any band's work until it becomes unrecognisable from the original. Why bother creating anything original yourself when you can tinker with another guy's work. People here complain about the lack of new product from the Stones but why should they bother when they can leak old and unreleased stuff through the back door and others

What makes you think you have the right to 'tinker' with Stones tracks? It's the job of the band and their producer to present their product as they wish. If the track now sounds dated because of the limitations of recording techniques at that time then surely that is part of the essence of the recording. Would you restyle the Mona Lisa or a Rodin statue? Would you appreciate it

Our leader has ended a light hearted thread relating to Pringles on the basis that food related topics are not relevant here. Would it be different if Pringles sponsored the next Stones tour? And does this mean that there will be no further discussion of the Rice Crispies ad here? BTW I agree with everything loog droog said- I can't speak for the US but his remarks are just as relevant

Since my original post I have been doing a little more digging and find that the topic has been discussed here several times before, notably by our friend Deltics who posted the complete broadcast in flac back in 2010. I found this through a Google search rather than an IORR search I have owned a copy of the TMQ bootleg EP for many years and bought it at the same time as the Bright Ligh

I believe that this is the gig where Cops n Robbers was recorded along with 3 other tracks. Does anyone know if the whole show was recorded, who were the other artists and songs and have they been released anywhere.

The Spencer Davis Group was one of the best bands of the 60s, their songs always memorable. Steve Winwood's voice surprisingly mature and soulful for such a young man. After he left the band, the group released Time Seller, a great piece of psychedelia with a string section that surely inspired Jeff Lynne's idea for ELO. Did not know that Davis dated Christine Perfect back in the day

Great, iconic song, played to death. Apparently had 3m air plays in US alone by 2006, probably double that now. Other songs worth seeking out are Woman, Trouble on Double Time, I'll Be Creepin' and I'm A Mover. Saw the band live many times in their heyday, very tight, Paul Rodgers a great front man. In a way, Paul Kossoff was a Brian Jones sort of character and self destructe

Quoteiraq0708 The outtakes which haven't been recorded yet are now available for trade... Are these 'lost' outtakes? Also, if they haven't been recorded yet can I request some favourite songs to be included?
