‘FOR YOUR PRECIOUS LOVE’ (unreleased, 1989)

Written by: Jerry Butler
Recorded: AIR Studios, Montserrat, West Indies, March 29-Apr. 1989

From Martin Elliott’s book THE ROLLING STONES COMPLETE RECORDING SESSIONS 1962-2012:
A Jerry Butler song which was an original Top 20 USA hit for him and Curtis Mayfield’s band, The Impressions, in 1958. Other lesser known acts who covered the song and attained USA chart positions were Garnet Mimms and the Enchanters and Oscar Toney Junior. The Stones took the opportunity to record it during the sessions and apparently it was one of the 15 releasable tracks.
