ROLLING STONES UNRELEASED: ‘KEY TO THE HIGHWAY’ (1964)

Written by: Charlie Segar/Big Bill Broonzy
Recorded: Chess Studios, Chicago, USA, Nov. 8 1964

From Martin Elliott’s book THE ROLLING STONES COMPLETE RECORDING SESSIONS 1962-2012:
The band played a short second United States nine-date tour with the Shangri-Las. The return to Chicago prompted another Chess session with Ron Malo on November 8. This session was not quite as fulfilling as the last time. Following the session Brian Jones became ill and missed four tour dates due to severe respiratory and exhaustion problems. He returned for the last date of the tour in Chicago. It is rumoured that on Key to the Highway Howlin’ Wolf played along.
