(… ) ‘Happily, the performances – much bootlegged since the ’70s – are pure delight. The Camden Theatre set (which sneaked out on a deluxe edition of the GRRR! compilation in 2012) boasts set highlight Cops And Robbers. A Bo Diddley original, it’s performed as an homage to the young Stones’ spiritual home, a fantasyland of chunky R&B riffery and big screen Hollywood noir. Jagger devours the slang with such evangelical zeal it verges on camp.

Cops And Robbers is one of eight songs across the two discs not released by the Stones at the time. Two titles from that first October ’63 Saturday Club session underline the defining influence of Chuck Berry. Keith Richards’ solo on Roll Over Beethoven remains the template for his breaks to this day, while Jagger’s mimickry of Chuck’s ‘soft’ voice on Memphis, Tennessee was an early glimpse of a gift that’s served him well.  (…). Many of the versions here stick close to the released takes. But when the group starts recording Jagger/Richards singles at RCA in Hollywood in 1965, namely The Last Time and Satisfaction, the lack of US-style reverberations makes for a more revealing listen. At the same time, contemporary US soul, often in the form of a Solomon Burke song (the Stones recorded If You Need Me four times for the BBC), was making inroads into their repertoire. (…)This is a hugely enjoyable landmark release”.  (by Mark Paytress, all rights reserved, quoted from:

RADIO 68 PLAYS the songs The Rolling Stones never recorded.


“Curtis Salgado’s earth-shaking vocals and forceful harmonica playing have been devastating audiences around the world for over 30 years. Alan Hager’s guitar expertise has been wowing fellow musicians from his hometown of Portland, Oregon and beyond for decades. Hager has been jamming with Salgado since 2003, and joined his band full-time in 2015. “Alan is the best player in the business, unlike anybody else,” Salgado says.
Together, the two blues fans and friends took time out of their busy touring schedule to record Rough Cut, a stripped-down album featuring a potent mix of newly written, timeless originals and carefully chosen blues covers. “We did it for the love of the music,” says Salgado. “This is where our hearts are. These are deep songs that we love to play.” (Source: Alligator PR-sheet)


THE ACTION are a  Mod group from London that played SOUL, of course, but later experimented with jazz and went psychedelic sounds, say, around 1967. They flew under  the wings of George  Martin and used Giorgio Gomelsky’s studio. To no avail in terms of success, as their five singles flopped. The Action eventually recorded a number of demos famously known as ROLLED GOLD.
Before all that, they went by the name of THE BOYS, performing and recording  (ne single for Pye) as a solo act. Also, they accompanied a female singer called SANDRA BARRY – she later fronted prog band SLACK ALICE. The Action’s singer, Reggie King, went solo and also sang in THE BLOSSOM TOES aka B.B. BLUNDER.
RADIO 68 PLAYS: The Boys, Sandra Barry & The Boys, The Action, The Blossom Toes,  pre-Blossom Toes ‘Les Ingoes’, The Byrds (Chris Hillman was an inspiration) , Slack Alice, souls singer Mickey Lane (covered by The Action) and soul-deep contemporaries Chris Farlowe and The Walker Brothers (they covered Land Of 1,000 Dances – The Action’s first single).
