ROLLING STONES UNRELEASED: ‘WAITING ON A FRIEND’ (early version, 1972)

Also known as: WAITING FOR A FRIEND; WAITING ON MY FRIEND
Written by: Jagger/Richard
Recorded: Dynamic Sound Studios, Kingston, Jamaica, Nov. 25-Dec. 21 1972
Guest musicians: Billy Preston (piano)

From Martin Elliott’s book THE ROLLING STONES COMPLETE RECORDING SESSIONS 1962-2012:
Waiting On A Friend is another track that originated in Jamaica but was not released until 1981. An outtake from Dynamic Sound shows that the foundation of the track was not significantly altered at all. Two other outtakes emanate from the Paris sessions.
