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!

CHICAGO – Park West

18th June 1987: THE CHARLIE WATTS ORCHESTRA. Chicago, Illinois, Park West

This recording is coming from a post on Dime. As the original uploader requested for not reworking it, I didn'’t touch the recordings (see the original textfile in the docs sheet).
I only added covers to include this show to the series!
So thanks a lot to the original recorder !
