The Rolling Stones are to release Live At The El Mocambo, recorded at the band’s two legendary secret shows at the 300-capacity El Mocambo club in Toronto, in 1977. They’ve aklso released new tracks from the album, Rip This Joint and It’s Only Rock And Roll.
Four tracks from the El Mocambo shows featured on the Stones 1977 live album Love You Live, alongside tracks recorded on the Tour of the Americas shows of 1975 and Tour of Europe shows in 1976, but the new album features 23 songs: the full set from the band’s second night at the club, and three tracks from the first night.
Rolling Stones fans were attracted to the show after local radio radio station CHUM FM organised a contest in which the prize was tickets to see Canadian rockers April Wine, supported by an unknown band called the Cockroaches.
“The plan that we constructed,” CHUM FM’s Duff Roman told The National Post in 2015, “was to have a contest: ‘What would you do to see the Rolling Stones play live?’ This way we could select the 300 top entries and guarantee that real fans would be there for the event. The prize would be a chance to see April Wine at the El Mocambo.
“People wrote in and we cherry-picked the best ones. As you might expect, there were lots of nude Polaroids. When the band came in to judge the winners, they slipped the photos into their pockets and took them home.”
On the nights themselves, April Wine were the opening act, with “The Cockroaches” taking the stage as headliners. April Wine recorded their own set for a live album, also called Live At The El Mocambo and released the same year.
The Rolling Stones album will be available on double CD, plus quadruple LP black vinyl, and neon vinyl variants. It’s been newly mixed by Bob Clearmountain. It’ll land on May 13.
