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.
