The recording session documented by the invoice in this lot, occurred during a key few days in the group's history. Three days earlier on April 28th, 1963 the Stones were introduced to Andrew Loog Oldham and Eric Easton at The Crawdaddy Club who signed them to a management deal a week later. As Bill Wyman remarked ...It was a meeting that would change everything. What would have happened if they had not become our managers is impossible to guess...things would have been very different without Andrew's flair for promotion.... Four days following the session, Dick Rowe, the Head of A&R at Decca went to the Crawdaddy to see the Stones perform -- a few days later he signed them up with their first recording contract with Impact Sound, a subsidiary of Decca.
The session to which the recording invoice refers is believed to have been one organised by Georgio Gomelsky to accompany a promotional film he intended to make himself on the blues scene. Apparently the Stones' track All Right Babe was used as background to the documentary but the film was never completed.
