WELL HERE IT IS FOLKS
I HAVE BEEN A ROLLING STONES FAN FOR AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER
I EVEN WON A PRIZE FOR DANCING TO JUMPING JACK FLASH
THAT WAS AT MY LOCAL YOUTH CLUB ( STILL GOING )
NOT ME - THE CLUB
I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR THE ORIGINAL SINGLE OF
FORTUNE TELLER / POISON IVY - DECCA F 11742 FOR OVER 20 YEARS
I HAVE NEVER SEEN A COPY -
POISON IVY WAS FIRST RECORDED BY THE ROLLING STONES ON 18 th. AUGUST 1963
THIS WAS SUPPOSE TO BE RELEASED AS THE FOLLOW UP TO THEIR FIRST SINGLE
" COME ON ", BUT IT NEVER HAPPENED.IT WAS HOWEVER RELEASED ON
THE COMPLITATION LP " SATURDAY CLUB " - ( THANK GOODNESS FOR THAT )
25 th. JANUARY 1964 - ( THIS IS IT )
POISON IVY WAS RE-RECORDED ON NOVEMBER 14 th. 1963 AND RELEASED IN THE U.K.
10/1/1964 ON THE E.P." THE ROLLING STONES "
THE FOLLOWING DETAILS APPLY TO THE VERSION OF POISON IVY ON THIS LP
LEAD VOCAL & GUIRO : MICK JAGGER
ELECTRIC GUITARS : KEITH RICHARDS & BRIAN JONES
BASS : BILL WYMAN
DRUMS : CHARLIE WATTS
BACKGROUND VOCALS : MICK JAGGER , BRIAN JONES (also harmony) ,& BILL WYMAN

THE RECORD IS CALLED

THE SLEEVE NOTES :
The B.B.C. producers of Saturday Cub write :
Almost six years ago we first heard "This is your old mate, Brian Matthew, saying "Welcome to Saturday Club,"
or as he writes, it on his running order, T I Y O M B M S W T S C
Over the six years, the radio audience in Great Britain has increased to one five of the whole population.
The show is broadcast to every corner of the world on short wave and is one of the top pop radio shows in the world.
Its popularity owes much to the informal uncondesending manner of Brian Matthews. Also we pride ourselves
in giving the fans whar they want by including top British stars , visiting artists from the States
and being on the ball with new sounds, new singles and new groups.
Many artists have had their first broadcast on the show. Brian Poole and the Tremeloes are a " Saturday Club "
discovery and are a group which we felt certain would have a hit record soon after their first appearence.
On this L P we have included artists who have had records in the Top Twenty like Karl Denver ,
The Vernon Girls and THE ROLLING STONES .
And , as in the broadcast show, there are artists for whome we predict future chart success like
Like Lorne Gibson, Dave Berry and The Marauders.
Three quarters of " Saturday Cub " is made up of performances by live artists, but the remaining half hour includes
a batch of new releases, an L P spot and of course, requests.Among the thousands of cards we receive each
week we find listeners resorting to all sorts of dodges to attract our attention. We've had requests printed on china
embroidered on cloths, and written on sailor hats and dustbins. A request for The Chimes came in the form
of a huge foam rubber bell. As we'vekept most of these odd requests, The Saturday Club office is beginning to
look like a strange museum.
When you play this L P , try and imagine our control room in Broadcasting House with Vernon Lawrence
and Bev Phillips looking after the control panel and turntables, Jeff Griffin playing in the tapes
and Shirley Jones keeping an eye on the timing. And staying unruffled through every possible crisis
( and we've had a few in our time ) is Brian Matthew who says
" T A F N S Y N W " or " That's all for now - see you next week ".
Well that took me back to the 60's listening to the radio - nice times too
