THE SATANIC SESSIONS by The Rolling Stones

Today it´s a good good day. We have discover that this blog has more than one reader. Thanks to all of you for your support (and Hanszun, thanks to you too for include my comment with my blog).

First of all we have to give SAMO what he wants. Here is the first Cd from the Rolling Stones Satanic Sessions. Excellent stereo sound and an album to make.

This detailed tracklist has been taken from

Vol. 1 CD 1
1. 2000 Light Years From Home (2:04) - A short run-through of the song that is missing the opening sound affects heard on the released version of the tune. A simple arrangement with only a distorted guitar riff, drums and bass line. Ends abruptly. Jagger once said that the words to this song were written while he was in jail after the Redlands bust.
Everybody in then...Take 1...Title 12 we'll call it.
2. 2000 Light Years From Home: Take 1 (4:09) - The working name of this song revealed: Title 12! There is much more instrumentation on this take. Brian Jones on Mellotron, with the rest of the band filling in on guitar, drums, bass, and maracas. One of the chord changes is missed on the Mellotron at 1:58 (Jones pauses for a second). There is quite a bit of improvised drumming at the end.
Toffee Apple...Take 2
3. 2000 Light Years From Home: Takes 2-4 (3:32) - There are two false starts. Jagger is having trouble getting a feel for the tempo..."That is very hard to do, no tempo...I'll try again".
4. 2000 Light Years From Home: Takes 5-6 (5:10) Take 5 starts and quickly stops. There is a problem with take 6 at 2:30 when the Mellotron stops. Maybe they are just experimenting with handing off the melody line to only the guitar. For the first time we hear the guitar "bonging" sound at the outro.
5. 2000 Light Years From Home: Takes 7-10 (3:51) Take 7 & 8 never get past the intro. Jagger: " your holding that've got to end it on that chording or else that minor". On take 10 there is a false start on a chord change at 3:14. Jagger's not happy with the take and stops the song.
Take 11...
6. 2000 Light Years From Home: Take 11 (2:26) Hesitations by both the guitar and Mellotron players on this take after the 1:53 minute point. Jagger: Hey, why don't you turn...Yeah give a Brian a note though....what?
7. 2000 Light Years From Home: Takes 12-13 (2:21) A good take, but a rough spot at the bridge and then a sour note and take 13 comes to an end.
8. 2000 Light Years From Home: Takes 14-15 (5:31) Take 14 stops abruptly after a short run-through. Take 15 is taking shape as the track that may be the basis for what was commercially released. It's simpler though, but if you add the sound effects ("saucer sounds" etc..) this is it. Richards puts a long pick scrape in at the end. There is a short playback heard at the end of this CD track that being played at much slower tempo.
9. 2000 Light Years From Home: Retakes 3 & 4 (2:30) Playbacks at noticeably slower speed. The final piece is played at correct speed and fills out the track. The intent of these playbacks seems to be overdubbing of additional guitar parts.
Gold we begun. Right...Jazz 67.
Hang-on Mick. (Coughing)
One...Part One.
Richards counts in the song: One,, two, three, four...
10. 5 Part Jam - Part 1: Takes 1-2 (3:17) Acoustic guitar and piano track. The chord run is similar to Something Happened to Me Yesterday, but not exactly the same. It's not "Stonesy", but neither is TSMR!
Three...three right
11. 5 Part Jam - Part 1: Takes 3-5 (3:17) Take 3 ends after less than a minute when the piano is lost. The guitar player misses a chord change on take 4 and it stops. Take 5 shapes out most the rest of the track.
Richards: He's not ready yet, you ready?
Part 5, take 1, no I wasn't
12. 5 Part Jam - Part 5: Takes 1-3 (3:05) This is sounding quite a bit different than CD tracks 10 & 11, and I question if there is any relationship at all. There is reverb on the piano and the track has a very produced sound to it...almost Oldham Orchestra like.
Part 4, Take 1...
13. 5 Part Jam - Part 4: Takes 1-10 (5:07) This track is sounding closer to the original acoustic demos (CD tracks 10-11) except with electric guitar instead of acoustic. There is a pause and wah effect is added.
You can't hear anything
All right everybody
Take 11
14. 5 Part Jam - Part 4: Takes 11-15 (5:26) More "wah" takes of the song".
Sorry Mick, one more, just one
Six, Part 3, take 1...
One, two, three, four...
15. 5 Part Jam - Part 3: Takes 1-5 (3:45) This sound very much like a separate bridge section that is being recorded in order to be spliced in with other sections of the song (hence all the "Part" titles). It's piano and a simple quarter note bass line.
New Take 1...
16. 5 Part Jam - Part 2: Takes 1-5 (2:24) Yet another evolution of a common theme, this time with a heavier distorted guitar. Repeats with the same short "section" take.
The evolution of "Title 12" is very interesting, especially the Brian Jones' work on the Mellotron. Perhaps the most revealing aspect of this disc is the fact that the band is clearly experimenting with "song construction" rather than playing as a band or producing baseline tracks to build the recording on. Haven't come across any other evidence of this in any of their other session work.
Fifteen, right...
17. We Love You: Takes 15-16 (6:11) - The musical genius of Brian Jones is once again displayed on the skillful playing of the Mellotron on this track. The guy has really mastered the instrument as his playing on 2000 Light Years from Home has also revealed. Note that the alternate take of this song found on the "Time Trip Vol. 4" CD is take 4 and quite different musically than these later takes. There are no "foot stomping and door clanking" sound effects at this stage in the song.
Ahhh, seventeen
18. We Love You: Takes 17-19 (3:35) - We Love You has been the musical influence of a couple significant groups including the vocal melody on Aerosmith's Sweet Emotion from "Toys In The Attic" (April, 1975) and a variation on the musical melody on Paul McCartney & Wings Nineteen Hundred And Eighty Five from the "Band On The Run" LP (December, 1973). McCartney along with Lennon sang backing vocals on the original Stones version of We Love You. Take 17 is short lived and the band dives straight in to take 18. None of these takes ever gets off the ground.

Read it and listen the CD. It´s the way to understand and enjoy this music.

Stay tuned for more releases and Let´s make it!!!

And don´t forget to send your comments. SAMO did it and here is a present for him.

Great Bootleg Blog! I see you're planning a Get Back sessions post, I'll stay tuned...We thought of doing their final version before Phil Spector came onto the scene, maybe it'd be a nice companion piece?

Keep It Up Let's!
