Japan; 1979 (?) I’m guessing the “Demo Copy” banner was added to hide the fact that this was an illegal unauthorized item.

Source: Audience recording from the Olympia Theater in London, supposedly from the last night on December 30th ’78. Rod and the band performed there as part of the British leg of his ‘Blondes Have More Fun Tour’ on December 21, 22, 23 and 28, 29 and 30th (the first three nights were recorded by KBFH and are available on concertvault.com).

set list:

The Stripper intro music / Hot Legs / Born Loose / Tonight’s The Night (Gonna Be Alright) / The Wild Side Of Life / Get Back / You’re In My Heart (The Final Acclaim) / I Don’t Want To Talk About It / Blondes (Have More Fun) /Do Ya Think I’m Sexy? / (If Loving You Is Wrong) I Don’t Want To Be Right / The Killing Of Georgie / Maggie May / (I Know) I’m Losing You / Sweet Little Rock N Roller / Sailing / Twistin’ The Night Away / You Wear It Well

The master tape for this release got chopped and mixed up quite a bit:

Side A:  Do You Think I’m Sexy?/ Sailing/ Twistin’ The Night Away/ You Wear It Well
Side B:  Hot Legs/ Tonight’s The Night/ Get Back/ You Broke My Heart (cover states ‘Blondes Have More Fun’ )/ Sweet Little Rock ‘N’ Roller

Matrix: K 318 A/B (machine stamped)

Do not judge a boot by its cover – this certainly applies here. True, Rod Stewart, Ron Wood and Keith Richards are on this recording, that much is true.

The date and venue given as 15 March 1975 and the Royal Albert Hall is really 13 or 14 July 1974 at the Kilburn Gaumont State Theatre in London.

Bill Wyman did not perform, it’s Willie Weeks (just a few months prior to being drafted into George Harrison’s North American Tour back up band). Charlie Watts did not play drums either, Andy Newmark did (hired to play drums for John Lennon’s final album sessions six years later). Kenny Jones did not participate and it’s not Ian Stewart nor Billy Preston nor Nicky Hopkins on piano but Ian McLagan.

 

13th July: RON WOOD & BAND. London, Kilburn Gaumont State Theatre
(Instrumental / Am I Grooving You / Cancel Everything / If You Gotta Make A Fool Of
Somebody / Mystifies Me /Take A Look At The Guy / Act Together / Shirley/Forever /

Note: The whole show was professionally filmed.

And there you have all Dittolino Disc releases. We still don’t know who was behind this label but this series of posts were a lot more interesting than I had first expected.

This seems to have been the point where the infamous shipping problems started: “150 pressed from the original WRMB plates. Most were lost in shipping. Exm.”

710717_Dayton

Side 1: Three Button Hand Me Down / Maybe I’m Amazed / Country Comforts / Love In Vain                 Side2:  Had Me A Real Good Time-Every Picture Tells A Story / Around The Plynth-An Old Raincoat Won’t Ever Let You Down-Gasoline Alley-Around The Plynth

Quality:  Decent, “Exm, vocals a bit weak”, according to Hot Wacks. The ROOTIE NEWTON ROLL PRESENTATIONS version is listed as “Exs”, probably incorrect.

This album had previously been released by TMOQ as and Dittolino/ROOTIE NEWTON ROLL PRESENTATIONS  #5407 and I suspect it’s a reissue from the TMOQ plates.

Performance was the last and is the rarest of the four TMOQ Rod Stewart & The Faces titles, It was never assigned a 710XX number and is only known by its matrix # 1867.  The other three are # 71016 Plynth, # 71052 Had Me A Real Good Time and # 1817 Dancing In The Street .

Date of release: 1974 based on the closest previous release, a reissue of Dylan’s Troubled Troubadour with four extra tracks not added to the newly created insert (showing images from his 1974 live dates) and with the matrix # 1865 B / D (see final image in this post).

In discussing the TMOQ catalogue dated July 1st 1973, the initiator of the 2006 thread “Homegenizing TMOQ” on recordcollectorsguild.org wrote: “add to the previous booklet the statement “Be sure it’s a genuine “Trade Mark of Quality disc” (Dub’s?). […] Should this booklet be Dubs, according to the “genuine disc” statement, the common believe[sic] that credits the four-figures matrixes 18XX, 28XX to Ken’s records only should be revised.”

Ken: “Until [Dub] went to printed jackets I had everything he had, plus everything I was making. There were a few where I couldn’t get stampers off his mothers, either because the mother was damaged or he’d skipped that part of the process or he didn’t leave the mother at Lewis. Winter Tour and Stones at the Hollywood Palladium come to mind. But I might be wrong about those. In those few cases, my records would have a different stamper number. But for the most part, Lewis pretty much made me whatever I wanted of his.

Dub and I did not do the Greatful Dead Mammery [sic] record or the Buffalo Springfield or that Double ELP. They were done by my college pal Malcolm.

I don’t ever remember scratching out a stamper number, but I do know that some of my records had numbers changed. I had a series of different partners and pressed records in six different plants and oftentimes the same record would be given a new title and perhaps that’s why some of my stamper numbers got changed.”

As can be seen in the detail above, the title “Performance”is quoted here, leading me to believe that the TMOQ version came out first. Also “Love In Vain” is correctly titled here, while it is listed as “It’s All Over Now” on the insert sheets for Performance.

Quality listed as “Exm” in Hot Wacks.

Side 1 does seem to correspond to the 1976 tour set list:

Three Time Loser
You Wear It Well
Big Bayou, Tonight’s The Night
Wild Side Of Life
This Old Heart Of Mine
Sweet Little Rock’n Roller
The Killing Of Georgie
I Don’t Want To Talk About It
Maggie May
Angel
True Blue
You Keep Me Hangin’ On
Get Back
(I Know) I’m Losing You
Sailing, Stay With Me
Twistin’ The Night Away

Rod and the band did play in Gothenburg, Sweden on 9 November of that year (only the fourth date of the tour), IF the city is correctly stated on the cover.

The tour got off to a terrible start. The band and I were only just getting to know each other and I thought, ‘I’ll show you who can drink’. For about three weeks I was staying out all night and I wasn’t eating. It didn’t help. Then I got sick. Well, I was existing on port and brandy afternoon tea and toast. When we opened at Olympia I felt so bad it was almost like somebody telling me I shouldn’t be there.” (Rod to the Daily Mirror)

Sounds like an aptly named bootleg then.

Side 2 coincides with the last half of the 1977 US Tour dates. Los Angeles saw three shows from 12 – 14 December ’77. There were no KBFH radio recordings that fit these dates and locations.

Source: Civic Auditorium, Santa Monica October 30 1970, audience recording, listed as “Gm” in HW.

rollingstones.net calls the CBM LP a “reissue”of the TMOQ release, yet HW originally wrote: “CBM 3 version is slightly better quality with SS(song separation)”. This may be due to a bad pressing though. I am pretty sure that CBM were not closer to the master tape than TMOQ were.
