1985 to 1987

This series is dedicated to another Charlie Watts sidestep: The Charlie Watts Orchestra.
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!

LONDON– Fulham Town Hall

09th December 1985: THE CHARLIE WATTS ORCHESTRA. London, Fulham Town Hall
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)/Alan Cohen (arranger, conductor)
Note: Recorded by UK BBC2 TV and televised on January 3, 1987 on ‘Celebration Jazz’.

01 - Stompin’ At The Savoy
02 – Robbin’s Nest
03 - Prelude To A Kiss
04 - You’ve Changed (Julie Dennis on vocals)
05 - Lester Leaps In
06 - Moonglow
07 - Scrapple From The Apple
08 - Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most (Gail Ann Dorsey on vocals)
09 - Midnight Sun
10 - Flying Home

All our versions were coming from the TV source but only nzb’s version was lossless.
I amplified the sound a bit (+ 5db), reworked the intro and outro from the show and deleted some little sound fluctuations at the end of the show.

As usual all the infos are taken from The Complete Works Of The Rolling Stones database by Nico Zentgraf: The Complete Works of the Rolling Stones - Database
