Charlie Watts Sidesteps:
The A, B, C & D of Boogie Woogie-series
This series is dedicated to the Boogie Woogie side-project of Charlie Watts between 2009 - 2012. All song titles were not identified yet. Also there are many instrumental improvisations (which haven't got any song title at all) and there might be some mistakes.
Any help is welcome!
Thanks to all 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!

* tracks without Charlie Watts
As usual all the infos are taken from The Rolling Stones Complete Works Database by Nico Zentgraf http://nzentgraf.de/books/tcw/works1.htm.
This previously uncirculating recording was send by nzb who got it by the GRAS brothers.
It’s an audience tape; the sound is a little muddy and has serious recording noises. After several attempts I preferred not to add any high tones or use reduction. I only amplified the sound a little bit, particularly in the first tracks.
It seems the ripping of the original recording (a DAT tape) was made track by track, because the transitions between the songs were unsubtle (with gaps and repetitions), so I tried to upgrade without losing music and often the only solution was to fade in/out between the tracks.
