Rolling Stones - 1964-1973 - Sessions and Rare Outtakes
"Mad Shadows"

Title: Mad Shadows.
Label: SRS Records.
Venue/City: Good collection of rare outtakes, including some new tracks that had previously never surfaced in the trading community.
Recording: Studio Outtakes. Awesome SQ.

- Hi-Heel Sneakers
- Stewed and Keefed
- Tell Me Baby
- Listed as: Meet Me In The Bottom (actual title: Down In The Bottom)
* All the above from Chess Studio's Chicago June, 1964. This was the first release to feature these tracks in excellent quality (no crackles on Stewed and Keefed). It should also be noted that these tracks are MONO and NOT Stereo. There are newer excellent stereo sources for these Chess recordings: "The Black Box" & "Record Mirror" to name a couple.
- Don't Lie To Me (Stereo)
- Listed as: 1964 Blues Jam
* a.k.a.: And Mr. Spector and Mr. Pitney Came Too: A similar instrumental track of what would become Andrews Blues
- Heart of Stone: "Metamorphosis" version.
- Looking Tired (Mono): RCA Studios September, 1965. Note the instrumental similarity to Robert Johnson's 32-20 Blues. This is the earliest Johnson influence I have been able to detect.
- Have You Seen Your Mother Baby?: An alternate vocal take.
- Listed as: I Can See It (actual title Can't Believe): The vocal version.
- Everybody Pays Their Dues: Street Fighting Man in drag.
- Jumpin' Jack Flash: Yeah, Yeah, version from the painted faces promo video.
- Honky Tonk Woman: A studio take that features the Paris stanza, which can be heard in concert on Ya Ya's.
- Good Time Woman: First version of Tumbling Dice.
- All Down The Line: The acoustic version. This is still incredible to hear.
- I Don't Know The Reason Why: Tracks in at 10:22. The stereo version from Electra Studios 1969.
- 32-20 Blues: Dallas Rehearsals 1972.
- Dancing With Mr. D: An alternate take that features a Taylor solo that was edited out of the album take. Reason enough to leave the band!
- Criss Cross: a.k.a.: Save Me. This is from the "Goat's Head Soup" sessions. Also featured in the Japanese animation film "Metamorphosis".
- Silver Train: An alternate take that jams.
