Show Notes:

Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones fills in for vocalist Keith Relf, who is unwell. It was a return to the Crawdaddy Club for Jones as The Yardbirds took over the Rolling Stones’ residency there in late 1963.

The Crawdaddy Club was founded by Giorgio Gomelsky, the first manager of The Rolling Stones and The Yardbirds. He operated two clubs under the name. The first, and better known, was located in Richmond-upon-Thames – first at The Station Hotel and later relocated to the Richmond Athletic Association when a larger space was needed. The second Crawdaddy Club was located at The Star Hotel in Croydon until April 1964. After that date, its name was changed to The Star Club.
