1985 to 1987

This series is dedicated to another Charlie Watts sidestep: The Charlie Watts Orchestra.
All songs titles were not identified yet... any help is welcome!
Thanks to the original recorders and especially to nzb and Jaap (Stonesmuziekfan) who provided me their recordings, gave critic and advice regarding my work … so without whom this project wouldn’t have been possible!

23rd November 1985
LONDON - Ronnie Scott’s (1st set)

23rd November1985: THE CHARLIE WATTS ORCHESTRA. London, Ronnie Scott’s
(1st set)
The line-up is not 100% sure but according to the other shows it's most probably:
CW (dr)/John Stevens and Bill Eyden (dr)/Jack Bruce (cello)/Stan Tracey (p)/Jim Lawless and Bill LeSage (vibes) Dave Green (bass)/Ron Mathewson (bass)/Colin Smith, John Huckeridge, Steve Sidwell, Harry Beckett, Ted Emmett, Jimmy Deuchar and Dave Defries (tp)/Paul Rutherford, Annie Whitehead, Chris Pyne and John Picard (tb)/Don Weller, Evan Parker, Alan Skidmore, Bobby Wellins, Danny Moss and Courtney Pine (tsax)/Peter King, Ray Warleigh and Willie Garnett (asax)/Gail Thompson (bsax)/Olaf Vas (clarinet, flute)/Julie Dennis (voc)/Gail Ann Dorsey (voc)
01 – intro
02 – Skyliner
03 – Robbins Nest
04 – Love Me Or Leave Me (Julie Dennis on vocal)
05 – unknown
06 – Flamingo
07 – Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most (Gail Ann Dorsey on vocal)
08 – Lover Man
09 – Lester Leaps In
10 – outro

Our versions were coming from the same source but nzb’s one was more interesting because it’s lossless and more complete (the two first songs were missing on our version and added by mistake on the second set!)
I amplified the sound a little bit (+ 2db) and reworked the intro and outro from the show.
« Flamingo » was cut in two parts at 5’24 – now they’re reconnected.
