Rory Gallagher and the Rolling Stones??

It was January 22 to February 9, 1975: The Rolling Stones, with Billy Preston, start rehearsing guitarists and resume recording sessions for Black and Blue in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, using the Rolling Stones Mobile Studio.

Guitarists showing up include Jeff Beck, Wayne Perkins and Rory Gallagher.
We all know that Rory did play a jam session / Audition, but these tapes have never been heard, some time ago Tony sent me these tracks.

What do you think? Is Rory playing on any of these?

Track 01. -
Track 02. -
Track 03. -
Track 04. -

I have nothing only the tracks, they are named 10.mp3 / 11.mp3 / 12.mp3 / 13.mp3 - Unfortunate but thats all I know, I think I hear Rory but I cannot be sure, It was Tony (krahsnif) who sent them, he was asking me as he had no further info....

I can't but interfere:)
I voted for Rory to be on track 1 because of the slide work, clearly his phrasing, the biting trebly tone and the "rolling-ish" feel to the whole track - as it had been said in a bunch of interviews - "Rory showed up and gave them a rolling-stones-like riff".
JimLED will fight teeth and nails against this, but his version of Rory being "track 4" stands no chance because you can clearly hear it's way too jazzy electric played with fingers\nails, both of which is clearly Jeff Beck's specialization out of the three mentioned guitarists.
On a sidenote: Rory might be the 2nd guitar cutting through on track 3, but I wouldn't bet my money on that.
Sincerely, a semi-pro touring and recording guitar player.

Jeff Beck can play any_freakin'_thing, believe me.
I'm not comparing anyone to anyone. It is just clear that track 4 is played with FINGERS. Rory himself said that he is not very good with fingerpicking in IT'74.
