THE ROLLING STONES
Swingin’ Pig EP Collection… Plus 8 [Swingin’ Pig, 1CD]

Bootleg CD EPs are a rare thing, but Swingin’ Pig released four of them, featuring 1960’s recordings by The Rolling Stones. These EPs were “IBC Demos 1963”, ”Cops And Robbers”, “Camden Theatre 1964” and ”Chess Chicago Outtakes 1964”. I can hear you collectors saying, “but they’re the same recordings included on other Swingin’ Pig CDs, such as Bright Lights, Big City, and Get Satisfaction… If You Want, and you are correct, but to make things more interesting, I have added eight additional bonus tracks; a combination of unreleased material, tracks that have appeared only on deleted vinyl or only on deleted CDs. - Philip Cohen

Thanks to Phil for sharing the tracks.

Note: A longtime music fan, Philip Cohen was a contributor to the now-defunct ICE Magazine and compiled the boxsets for The Yardbirds, The Small Faces, Humble Pie and Nice.

Track 21. Everybody Needs Somebody To Love (RCA Studios version - True Stereo Mix) (8.2MB)
Released only once, on a 1970’s UK Decca LP, Rock n’ Rolling Stones. Unfortunately, the Russian bootlegger who tried to re-create “Rock n’ Rolling Stones” on CD accidentally used the mono demo version from Regent Sound in London.

Track 25. Get Off of My Cloud (4.8MB)
True Stereo mix, from the withdrawn 1985 West German CD of Hot Rocks 1.

Track 26. Brown Sugar (6.5MB)
Unreleased version intended for their final Decca single. Unfortunately, the group submitted the song with an obscene B-side, intentionally, so that the Decca and London labels wouldn’t release the single, and the song Brown Sugar could be used to launch The Rolling Stones Records label. However, The Stones released a different take of Brown Sugar, leaving this version in the vaults. This alternate version is taken from a bootleg 12” single on a counterfeit “Rolling Stones Records” label.

  3. More Stones! Thanks Phil and bigO!

    By Namoosedog on Mar 28, 2011

  4. Wow…what another great selection of early Stones. And a special thanks for the Plus 8 tracks. It would be great to hear more True Stereo Mixes like these. Thanks Phil and BigO!!!

    By Rick D on Mar 28, 2011

  5. Thanks for the additional early classic Stones, Philip Cohen and BigO!

    However, isn’t track 6 and 11, Cops and Robbers, the same recording from 3/19/64 at Camden Theatre? Since these come from different CD EP collections, I could see why there might be a duplicate.

    By 2yrsnojob on Mar 28, 2011

  6. To 2yrsnojob,

    If there is a duplication of the same version of “Cops & Robbers”, it is only to present the E.P.’s complete, as Swingin’ Pig presented them.

    By Philip Cohen on Mar 28, 2011

  7. Thanks Philip for confirming that.
    It brought to mind when I worked in a record department. LP’s, 8 tracks, cassettes. The labels would put out a Best Of.., Greatest Hits Of, Favorites Of, just to make more money or if the artist wasn’t putting out original albums faster than rabbits in heat…and somehow tour in the meantime. Those collections would have like 80 or 90% the same stuff. So they’d throw ONE new track in there. But if the band broke up or the artist died, and they were popular enough, the gravy train gold mine of endless collections had arrived. Not any vault material, mind you, just old cuts that were like never released as singles, or a defunct label. re: Beach Boys, Beatles, etc. And when a band was popular, a whole bunch of Sound A Like nobody bands to do their hits in the cheapest, cheeziest way. POLKA HITS OF THE BEATLES!!! Hammer Dulcimer of the Rolling Stones!! AH, the good old days. Thanks again Philip and BigO, for keeping it fresh. Loved the TruStereo versions especially!

  8. Great stuff — thank you!

    By Rafe on Mar 28, 2011

  9. A nice bit of noise to wake up to. THANX!!!!!!!!!!

    By Timmy on Mar 28, 2011

  10. I have the original vinyl EP of Cops and Robbers. Bought it back in the seventies. Thanks for posting this Phil.

    By Raider on Mar 28, 2011

  11. I was lucky enough to be working at a Record Store at the dawn of CDs, so have The aforementioned Hot Rocks collection with the stereo versions (plus the ‘Ladyland’ Hendrix cover and several other early CD oddities). I probably (have to check the notes out) have Phil’s early CD contributions and don’t know it. Still, there are a couple here I DON’T have and it will be nice to get those stereo tracks in the MP3 library (lazy me). Thanks muchly.

    By Duncanmusic on Mar 29, 2011

  12. I’ve heard this rough ‘n’ ready take of “Brown Sugar” before, and on the notes to the vinyl boot it claimed this version was recorded at an in-studio birthday party in 1969 for Keith Richards, and that party guest Eric Claption plays the second half of the solo, after the saxophone. I’ve never heard that this version was submitted to Decca for release consideration. You sure about that?

    By Jim Kneubuhl on Mar 29, 2011

  13. Jim,

    Yes, it would have been the B-side of the proposed Decca single, backed with “C.S. Blues”

    By Philip Cohen on Mar 29, 2011

  14. I don’t have any of the original EPs, so this is great - thank you! The only thing I had before was that 12″ single with CS Blues on the other side.

    By MrBill on Mar 29, 2011

  15. For the few who didn’t already know, Cops and Robbers (and the rest of the session) was one of the first BBC stereo broadcasts. One channel was broadcast on the FM band and the other on AM, the only way to receive stereo before FM multiplex transmission was standard. Sound quality obviously suffered on the AM side. I had a tape from the radio for years before it was reissued, so much better to hear it “rediscovered” in good quality.

    By HytekFred on Mar 30, 2011

  16. Very nice collection! Many thanks to you, Phil, and to BigO for hosting this.

    By tony on Mar 30, 2011

  17. The early 60s BBC stereo broadcasts were split between TV and radio frequencies: there was only the one TV channel, so presumably the screen went blank for the duration.

    By Adamsez on Mar 30, 2011

  18. To Adamsez,

    The screen didn’t go black. There was video of the performance too, and, as I recall, an excerpt was included in the video program “The Rolling Stones-25 x 5:The Continuing Adventures of The Rolling Stones”

    By Philip Cohen on Mar 30, 2011

  19. Thanks Again!!!

    By Diane on Mar 30, 2011

  20. Thanks for more early Stones. I read there were a couple of EPs that had alternate takes of Satanic Majesties tracks that may have been outfakes. Has anyone come across these?

    Dear Mr. Jones: Http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brian_Jones:

    Sir for all time I waited to see and hear a Rolling Stones Concert!
    Http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Rolling_Stones_(album)! Is truly real and so is the Band that captured the World in English Britannia! “Decca Records is a British record label established in 1929 by(Mr.) Edward Lewis. Its U.S. label was established in late 1934; however, due to World War II,;” Decca Records is a British record label established in 1929 by Edward Lewis. Its U.S. label was established in late 1934; however, due to World War II, the link with the British company was broken for several decades.[1] The label was noted for its development of recording methods in the United Kingdom and for the development of original cast albums in the United States. Both wings are now part of the Universal Music Group which is owned by Vivendi, a media conglomerate headquartered in France. The American Decca label was the foundation label which evolved into UMG.”

    Hath way old fashinoned resting nightly hour.

    A doll lassie and head Sweed and lobing dour;
    Hi; a fourpence for my girl kindly;
    One against a gentleman … Fred the night grocer;
    Naught a monkey smiles with tea and glass clear for only his mommie!

    Uncle Ted says with smirk;
    The Pals sips quiet Coron black and young;
    She sleeps … to light wings of Fly of butter winged ladies …
    And hops a loving ride!

    Freckles a smarty meows by …
    And flings a wink to all her saiding ray;
    Lady again turns to the Moon …
    Delicate lands here with the silver and tune!

    Ms Sara Crewe is here now feasting;
    Loving pudding all custard pure …
    Cashmere is here hand open and free,
    With here dolly lassie ab open to sea!

    Warm is the Moon and friends sing;
    Six whole English plasms of praise,
    Moon of gold and Belgium blue;
    Want of a better night-day then not with out Lady Sara Crewe?

    The Newly-Wed!

    A, rare friend; Mr. Frank Deak gave me a rare comedy on the Honey Moon; “For Newlyeds”!

    I own! The title is; “A Good Man Is Hard To Find;”! The Melrose Square of Giftbook in Holloway House Company; (and I was a virgin man then); by the accepted Los Angeles of California at the Zip true; 90046; ran racy and English pushy verse! While I never purchased a original new Playboy magazine; I studied the sexual non Roman Catholic humor!

    By, Writer and Cartoonist, P. Baudetto: “I took the liberty of turning down the bed sir!” The Liberty Bell; was for Austin, Texas, America and lost now War!

    By, Writer and Cartoonist, without signature “What do you mean, where I’am I sleeping?!” The Bride is not with her wed! (The brother of blood!).

    By, Writer and Cartoonist, I. Jner: “Here, I just put this on!” The male in finance is worried of her drive and likes the theatrics and not sexual intercourse!

    By, Writer and Cartoonist, not now: “Before we were married you said you’d never stop loving me and here it is through the half way through the third night and you stopped already!” Work is policing and jealous and some part family are (attempting) to a ruining a man for loving his clean wife! And the birth clean loving babies! Well the lady does …! (Just Married)!!

    By, Writer and Cartoonist, not now: “But, dear! – I’,m positive I told you this morning that I was bringning the boss home for dinner!” A Company sale is evil and hates a clean marital.

    The best comic is careful and happy with a wedding alone! Mine is happy Roman Catholic and never family separated! I studied the smear in the Wedding and lost humor! If, people care for the Bell of Liberty; then why the need for a lawyer in skin clean for a shark in dirvorce? Women need natural male 100%-and female! I do not hold a card for being a gang rapist or evil contributor! For any Newyl-Wed; #1- Partner and #1-Partner of both heterosexual mating to clean solid new born is the hardest find!

    Best of care in the new World!

    Mum’s apple pie is best warm by the window for family only!!

    #5!!!!!
