Live At The El Mocambo (with H Side Etching)

Limited edition 4LP set in a die-cut slipcase!

Legendary 1977 performance released in full for the first time!

Newly mixed by Bob Clearmountain!

The Rolling Stones‘ secret gig at Toronto's El Mocambo club in March 1977 is being released officially for the first time, as a deluxe 4LP box set with special etching.

The band played two shows in the tiny 300-capacity venue on March 4-5, 1977 and the audio is being issued across a 4LP vinyl package. The box set features the whole performance from the second date, with three bonus tracks from the March 4 gig, all newly mixed by Bob Clearmountain

The 23 tracks include Muddy Waters' "Mannish Boy," Bo Diddley's "Crackin' Up," "Let's Spend The Night Together," "Tumbling Dice," Willie Dixon's "Little Red Rooster," the live debut of "Worried About You," "Honky Tonk Women," "Hot Stuff" and many more. Only four of the performances found their way onto the Love You Live album that followed in September 1977, which was dominated by tracks captured on the band's 1975 and '76 tours, with the full set having never been heard before.

As the Stones took to the stage of the "El Mo," a fixture of the Toronto music scene since the 1940s, punk and disco were both rearing into full view, supposedly ready to see off a band who had already been at the top of their game for 15 years. Over two nights, in an intimate space in one of their favorite cities, they were about to make that prognosis look foolish indeed.

The gigs became reality after the El Mocambo was identified as the potential home for a secret booking.

A radio contest was organized in which the prize was tickets to see Canadian rock heroes April Wine, supported by an unknown band called the Cockroaches.

Guess who they turned out to be...

On the nights, naturally, April Wine were themselves the opening act, and so it was that the Stones rolled back the years to the exhilarating club incarnation of their early years.

Against all the odds, the band produced two nights of exhilarating music that they still talk about in Toronto, and in Rolling Stones legend, to this day.
