DVD split into 7 chapters.
Run time - 00:27:46

Some words from Sky Arts 1 webpage:
Ronnie Wood's first guest is Alice Cooper who shares many a memory with Wood. “It was always a party when Ronnie was in town,” Cooper remembers.
He also reveals Wood and his band’s habit of wrecking hotel suites. “What people don’t realise about the Faces is that they were the all-time champion room destroyers; no one was better at destroying rooms,” he says.
In the intimacy of the recording studio, Wood and Cooper also discuss the influence of the Detroit rock scene, their initial reactions to Iggy Pop’s music and peanut butter-smeared body, and Cooper’s famous stage stunts, including one with a sword that secretly went very wrong.

Dirty Work Sessions: Pathé Marconi Studios, Paris, France, February 1985

Hello and welcome to JEMS' Foxes In The Boxes, the second volume in a series featuring unreleased studio sessions from the Rolling Stones, circa 1979-85. Based on our research, along with the expertise of Stones sessionologist N, who helped us sort through these tapes, we believe the Foxes In The Boxes series offers a small trove of previously uncirculated material along with upgrades and a few familiar outtake favorites from new source tapes. All of Volume Two is wholly unreleasedt.

The series is titled Foxes In The Boxes in homage to its source: boxes of in-house cassette tapes obtained by JEMS from someone "on the inside" of a major record label in the '70s and '80s. It is also a rhyming nod to the bootleg Static In the Attic (Midnight Beat), which mined the same sessions for kindred material and to which we believe Foxes makes a worthy companion. Samples provided.

Some tracks in the series have been previously rumored, some are wholly new finds, while others improve on previously circulating versions. There are a few frustrating fragments, too, but what's presented here is exactly what was on the tapes, which were seemingly meant to capture and present in-progress status on Stones sessions and to preserve ideas for future consideration.

Volume Two focuses solely on the February 1985 Dirty Work sessions in Paris, as captured on a single cassette tape. What’s fascinating about these monitor mixes is that, after the first track, Mick departs and Keith takes over, which explains the appearance of songs like “Talk Is Cheap” which would become the title of Richards’ 1988 solo album.

As we learned from his autobiography, Life, tension between Mick and Keith was running high at the time because of Mick’s budding solo career. Scheduling conflicts between Mick supporting She’s The Boss and recording the new Stones album caused a rift and explain why he isn’t present on the rest of the tracks.

But Mick’s absence is what makes the recording especially compelling, as we get to hear Keith leading the Stones through his material, venting frustrations with Mick in the process, especially on the final song. With that said, let's go track by track:

Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever: The Stones started the Dirty Work sessions by warming up with some cover versions, and this Four Tops song (written by Stevie Wonder and Ivy Jo Hunter) is one of the few to circulate so far; this version being an upgrade. While Mick’s vocals are a touch soft, overall it is a fine and, at times, enchanting performance, not to mention it being a song that could have made a great Stones track

Talk Is Cheap: Over 11 minutes long, “Talk Is Cheap” is in the vein of Keith’s Dirty Work contribution, “Sleep Tonight.” The single guitar suggests Ron Wood is probably playing bass. Richards never finished this ballad, but the title stuck and was used on his first solo album in 1988.

What Am I Supposed To Do: Early version of “What Am I Gonna Do With Your Love.” Long, 15+ minute jam around the title phrase, performed by The Podiums, the pseudo band consisting of Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood, Bobby Womack and Don Covay formed as yet another way to kill time when Jagger was not around during the Paris sessions. One of two Podiums tracks to surface from the Dirty Work sessions (the other being “Sending Out Invitations”).

Stick It Where It Hurts: Likely a Ronnie Wood composition, as he sings the guide vocals. The title phrase offers the only words which can be clearly made out.

Can’t Cut The Mustard 1-2: Early versions of “Had It With You,” though the eventual title phrase is not yet present. Some singing by Ronnie Wood again (together with Richards), as he co-wrote the music to the song. Already circulating, but these are upgrades and include some studio chatter.

Can’t Cut The Mustard 3: Fragment of a third take, but this stays instrumental and gets abandoned after half a minute.

Victor Hugo: An absolutely fascinating fly-on-the-wall track. Presumably pissed off about Jagger missing sessions and abandoning the Stones, Richards improvises a nasty set of lyrics about his bandmate, going so far as to refer to him by the derisive nickname, Brenda. “Victor Hugo” showcases Keef at his vitriolic and profanity-laced best.

JEMS offers its huge thanks to N, who helped us sort through the tapes and provided invaluable insight in ascertaining what we had. The song-by-song notes above are culled from N's essential contributions. Pitch adjustments come courtesy of Goody, who lent us his keen ear and his unwavering commitment to A440. Thank you, Goody. SkipKid68 also chimed in with valuable feedback, so thanks to him, too. The much-appreciated official cover art is courtesy of ethiessen1. And last but not least, kudos to mjk5510, who came on board at the start and helped finish the project to get it into your hands.

Hello and welcome to JEMS' Foxes In The Boxes, the first volume in a series featuring unreleased studio sessions from the Rolling Stones, circa 1979-85. Based on our research, along with the expertise of Stones sessionologist N, who helped us sort through these tapes, we believe the Foxes In The Boxes series offers a small trove of previously uncirculated material along with upgrades and a few familiar outtake favorites from new sources' tapes. All of Volume One is wholly unreleased and, we have strived to ensure, DIME compliant.

The series is titled Foxes In The Boxes in homage to its source: boxes of in-house cassette tapes obtained by JEMS from someone "on the inside" of a major record label in the '70s and '80s. It is also a rhyming nod to the bootleg Static In the Attic (Midnight Beat), which mined the same sessions for kindred material and to which we believe Foxes makes a worthy companion. Samples provided.

Some tracks in the series have been previously rumored, some are wholly new finds, while others improve on previously circulating versions. There are a few frustrating fragments, too, but what's presented here is exactly what was on the tapes, which were seemingly meant to capture and present in-progress status on Stones sessions and to preserve ideas for future consideration. With that said, let's go track by track.

Neighbors: Listed on the source tape under the slightly different title "Neighbor." This is a monitor mix with early guide vocals and is the first take of "Neighbors" to circulate intact from the Emotional Rescue sessions. All other versions, released or unreleased, come from different takes overdubbed and edited during the Tattoo You sessions. If you like "Neighbors," you'll love this rollicking and highly appealing early version.

Let's Go Steady Again: Cover of the Sam Cooke song that was the B-side of "Only Sixteen" in 1959. It features a wonderful Keith Richards lead vocal. Misnamed "Let's Go Steady" on the source tape. An Emotional Rescue outtake from Compass Point Studios late January or early February 1979. Kristi Kimsey is on backing vocals.

Tried to Talk Her Into It: This Undercover sessions outtake has been previously bootlegged (e.g. on the Outsider Bird Records LP Chain Saw Massacre), but the quality from this source tape is an upgrade.

Keep It Cool: Monitor mix of a long, jazzy Undercover sessions outtake. Also known as "Keep It Cool Parts 1 & 2," but that could refer to a rumored 20-minute version of the song said to exist.

Can't Find Love: Fragment of an Undercover sessions outtake, cut out of a much longer version of the song. This bit is likely the essence or part of the song which the Stones liked and wound up on this tape for reference purposes.

Can't Find Love: Another fragment as above, but listed specifically as a "bridge idea."

Eliza: Also known as "Eliza Upchink" (which is how Bill Wyman lists the title of this track in his second Stones book) and sometimes mis-titled as "Back On The Streets Again" when it reappeared in the Dirty Work songwriting sessions. A snippet of this song was uploaded to YouTube many years ago in memory of Ian Stewart (but that clip has since disappeared). This is the complete take.

High School Girl: This appears to be a demo recording or songwriting exploration featuring only Mick Jagger (who also plays guitar) and Charlie Watts on drums.

Stop That: An unlisted fragment on the tape. This Undercover outtake already circulates in complete form, but in inferior quality (often misnamed "Chain Saw Rocker").

All I Have To Do Is Dream: Cover version of the old Everly Brothers classic from 1958, performed by Keith Richards on solo piano at Longview Farm, North Brookfield, Massachusetts in late May 1981. This is the previously uncirculated full take, including false start. Brace yourself for Keith to be right in your living room and his voice deep inside your ears.

Piano Fragment: A bit more Keef tickling the ivories from the same session.

JEMS offers its huge thanks to N, who helped us sort through the tapes and provided invaluable insight in ascertaining what we had. The song-by-song notes above are culled from N's essential contributions. Pitch adjustments come courtesy of Goody, who lent us his keen ear and his unwavering commitment to A440. Thank you, Goody.

NEW: Rolling Stones live in East Rutherford 2006 - 2CD - September 27

Rolling Stones
Giant's Stadium
E. Rutherford, NJ
September 27, 2006

Giant's Stadium is my least favorite venue in the greater NYC area at which to see any concert.  I
have not been there for years and it is only because this was the only local place where the Stones
are playing that I went at all.  Simply put the people who run the place are major ass holes who
treat everybody like crap.  So there we were waiting outside for Kanye West to finish his wholly
uninspired walk through (no I did not record that crap he called music).  We had our choice of
standing in back of the floor by the concession stand lines, or we could opt to sit alongside a wall
on the outside of the arena with a view of about 30 porta-johns.  Our tired old legs opted for the
seats.  Had to wait a full hour for the Stones to come on stage and we spent the time complaining
about the various lines, searches, and DNA samples we had to put up with in order to get inside.
Most importantly, we vowed never to return to Giant's Stadium for a concert (yet as a seasons
ticket holder for the Jet's, I find the place most congenial and accommodating.   It's just the
concert crowds that those facist ass holes abuse.)

Well the second the Stones hit the stage, all that frustration and anger disappeared.  As I wrote
for a local New Orleans newspaper back in 1981 ... "Beg, borrow, lie, cheat or steal.  Sell your mother, sister
or daughter.  Do whatever it takes and do what you must.  If there is one concert you must see, it
is the Rolling Stones."  These are the guys who wrote the book on Rock 'n Roll concerts and as
they continually update their performance, so too they re-write the book, taking both to higher
levels beyond anyone's pre-conceived notion of what a rock concert should be.  I'm not going to
review the concert here, you can find that at......  My personal favorite was Far Away
Eyes, and that's as far as I need to go.  I'm just putting up some great music for all of you to
enjoy.  I believe this is the first post from the North American leg of this tour, but I'm hoping
others will get theirs up just as fast, as I just can't get enough of the Stones, and want to hear all
the other great tunes they've played at the first two shows of this tour.

Recorded by TaperAdvocat from the 30th row of the floor, FOB, directly in front of the right
stack ... except when they played the B-Stage, in which case the stack was behind me.
