ROLLING STONES UNRELEASED: ‘GOLD PAINTED FINGERNAILS ‘ (1967)

Also known as: GOLD PAINTED NAILS
Written by: Jagger/Richard
Recorded: Olympic Sound Studios, London, England, July 7-22, Aug. 1967
Guest musicians: Nicky Hopkins (piano)

From Martin Elliott’s book THE ROLLING STONES COMPLETE RECORDING SESSIONS 1962-2012:
Evidently a favourite of Bill Wyman’s since he wanted it to be included on THE BLACK BOX project. Again this track was worked upon extensively since there are 10 outtakes and 23 takes of the track available on bootlegs. It’s an instrumental only and features the heavy organ of Nicky Hopkins, and mouth organ. Keith Richards plays on acoustic. Brian Jones contributes something since he is mentioned in the studio backtrack. It could have been the mouth organ. There does not seem to be any take that is passable for release, so one wonders which one Bill was partial to.
