The Charlie Watts Quintet
The 1991 Japan shows

A big thank to my usual partners in crime nzb and Jaap (Stonesmuziekfan) who sent me their versions for these shows and gave critics and advise regarding my work.

Volume 07
18th September 1991
Tokyo, Japan, Asakusa Studio

Recorded for a TV show in Tokyo, Japan, Asakusa Studio, 18th September 1991 and broadcasted on 15th November: Japanese TV (JSB) ‘Wowow’-special: “From One Charlie…”.
Line-up: CW (dr)/Peter King (sax)/Gerard Presencer (tp)/David Green (bass)/Brian Lemon (p)/Bernard Fowler (narrator)/& string section 'Trybeat' (on 'Terra De Pajaro' and 'Going, Going, Going, Gone')
For this TV show we had two recordings. The first one is coming from a DVD. The sound is good but with a big rumble and saturation particularly in the narration segments.
The second tape is not saturated but the sound is muddy.
I decided to keep both and made a 2 cd-r’s version.

CD1: from a DVD rip

01 – DVD introduction generic (Peter King solo)
02 – Rehearsal segments (with or without orchestra)
03 – Interview segments (conducted by Mike Koshitani)
- Bernard Fowler (the narrator)
- Peter King (sax)
- Brian Lemon (piano)
- David Green (bass)
- Gerard Presencer (trumpet)
- Charlie Watts (drums)
04 – Intro by Bernard Fowler
05 – Practising, Practising, Just Great
06 – Narration by Bernard Fowler
07 – Blackbird - White Chicks
08 – Narration by Bernard Fowler
09 – Bluebird
10 – Narration by Bernard Fowler
11 – Bound For New York
12 – Narration by Bernard Fowler
13 – Terra De Pajaro
14 – Narration by Bernard Fowler
15 – Bad Seeds - Rye Drinks
16 – Narration by Bernard Fowler
17 – Relaxing At Camarillo
18 – Narration by Bernard Fowler
19 – Going, Going, Going, Gone
20 – Narration by Bernard Fowler
I ripped the DVD, edited the tracks and narration segments. I deleted some noises in the narration parts.

CD2: reworked version

01 – Intro by Bernard Fowler
02 – Practising, Practising, Just Great
03 – Narration by Bernard Fowler
04 – Blackbird - White Chicks
05 – Narration by Bernard Fowler
06 – Bluebird
07 – Narration by Bernard Fowler
08 – Bound For New York
09 – Narration by Bernard Fowler
10 – Terra De Pajaro
11 – Narration by Bernard Fowler
12 – Bad Seeds - Rye Drinks
13 – Narration by Bernard Fowler
14 – Relaxing At Camarillo
15 – Narration by Bernard Fowler
16 – Going, Going, Going, Gone
17 – Narration by Bernard Fowler
Here I chose to keep only the “From One Charlie”-show.
I added a little more treble, duplicated the channels and created a fake stereo effect. And I deleted a lot of little noises. I like the final result very much and I hope others will like it too!

As usual all the infos are taken from The Rolling Stones Complete Works Database by Nico Zentgraf:
The Complete Works of the Rolling Stones - Database
For the back cover I used and reworked pics from the great Japanese fanzine “Stone People” (issue #60).
