The New Barbarians

Something, I think, of a slightly underappreciated gem today.....The New Barbarians were for all practical purposes a Rolling Stones side project, put together by Ron Wood at a time which I think was before Wood became an "official" Stone (although he had long been a hanger-on).....they were, more or less formed by Wood to support his pretty decent album "Gimme Some Neck", which I thought I had around here somewhere and was going to post with this but can't seem to find.

They played a series of shows in 1979, with a lineup of Wood, Stones guitarist Keith Richards, bassist Stanely Clarke, keyboardist Ian McLaglan fromerly Wood's mate in the faces, sax blower Bobby Keys, and drummer Joseph Zigaboo Modeliste. They cranked out a rough, sub-Stones sounding blend of rock, country, and blues, (also several Stones tunes).....they never  released an "album" per se, but years later this show, recorded at Largo Maryland, a two disc set entitled "Buried Alive"......quite  a good set it is, to these ears anyway....Richards and Wood in particular sound like they are having the tims of their lives.....check out awesome versions of "Sweet Little Rock N Roller", "F.U.C. Her", and a bunch more, this is VERY enjoyable and (I think) forgotten for the most part. They conclude with a raved-up combo of Richard's outlaw anthem "Before they Make Me Run" and a version of "Jumpin' Jack Flash".

Now, my reason for posting this is I saw something on Pirate Bay that I had never seen, it was a four disc set by these guys, entitled "The Drg Dealer Tapes".....had planned on grabbing it and coupling it with this, but I guess no one is seedit, after a week or so it is at 0.00% .......anybody GOT ONE? That sounds like it would be pretty cool. So calling all Friends of the Blog, if you happen to have "The Drug Dealer Tapes", that would be a nice companion piece for some of the Stones rarities that so many of you enjoyed previously.

DISC 1-01 Sweet Little Rock N Roller/02 Buried Alive/03 F.U.C. Her/04 Mystifies Me/05 Infkeshun/06 Rock Me Baby/07 Sure the One You Need/08 Lost and Lonely/09 Love In Vain/10 reathe On Me

DISC 2-01 Let's Go Steady/02 Apartment No. 9/03 Honky Tonk Women/04 Worried Life Blues/05 I Can Feel the Fire/06 Come to Realise/07 Am I Grooving You?/08 Seven Days/09 Before They Make Me Run/10 Jumping Jack Flash

Shouldn't take long to get but two links so check through those collecti for "The Drug Dealer Tapes" (my guess is it is EXTREMELY rare), would love a share of it and then of course a share with MY millions of fatihful readers!
