ROME, 25 MAR – Two legendary and secret performances awaited by fans for over 40 years. The Rolling Stones announce for May 13 the arrival of the album “Live At The El Mocambo”, the first official release of the two famous concerts of the group in the small club (only 300 seats) in Toronto in March 1977. For the occasion a radio contest was launched whose prize was tickets to attend the Canadian April Wine shows, which would have had as support act an unknown band, the Cockroaches. And the latter turned out to be the Rolling Stones… In those evenings, of course, it was April Wine the opening band, and it was thus that the Stones went back through the years to the days of the first incredible nights in the clubs. All this amid the intense press attention of the time towards Keith Richards and his problems with drug addiction. Against all odds, the band unleashed two unforgettable evenings that are still talked about today in Toronto and in the legendary history of the Rolling Stones. The album will be available on double CD, 4LP (Black Vinyl), 4LP (Neon Vinyl) and digital. It will contain the complete set of the show on March 5, 1977, plus three bonus tracks from the concert on March 4, 1977, all with a new mix by Bob Clearmountain. Only four tracks (the El Mocambo Side) taken from those live performances were included on Love You Live, the album released in September 1977 that contained mostly tracks recorded on the band’s 1975 and ’76 tours; the entire set at El Mocambo has never been released before. As the Rolling Stones prepare for their 60th anniversary celebrations, Live At The El Mocambo is now available for pre-order. The release of the album is preceded by two songs: “It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll” and “Rip This Joint”, available on all digital platforms. The setlist included a wide variety of tracks, from Muddy Waters ‘”Mannish Boy” and Bo Diddley’s “Crackin’ Up” to their great classics like “Let’s Spend The Night Together” and “Tumbling Dice”, then back to the blues with Big Maceo’s “Worried Life Blues” and Willie Dixon’s “Little Red Rooster”.
