    Motivated by Cocaine Eyes idea of talking about the Stones’ history, I think this is very interesting to start with.

    It’s not really new but there’s always somebody who possibly haven’t heard this before: a recording of the Blues Incorporated set for BBC Jazz Club in July 12, 1962. Yes, the very same day when the boys were playing their first concert as The Rolling Stones at the Marquee Club. This is probably one of the first known recordings of Charlie Watts.

    A huge thank you to Deltics for posting this recording on YouTube.

    Hi CR! I’d LOVE to see a ‘History Of The Stones’ (or some such title) here at EOMS. In my opinion, it would be an informative and unique addition to the site. Videos, posted info, newspaper articles, the whole shebang.

    Perhaps you might find interesting this mid-seventies cover of Get Off Of My Cloud as done by Alexis Korner, with a special guest appearance by Keith. If you ask me, in his thirties and forties Keith seems to have patterned his look somewhat after Alexis, because as you see from the second video below Alexis looks like the older version of Keith. In fact, Keith’s vocal styling also seems to be patterned after Alexis, as they sound similar.

    And here’s a live version done with Steve Marriott in 1975.
