ROLLING STONES UNRELEASED: ‘GANGSTER’S MOLL’ (1979)


Written by: Jagger/Richards
Recorded: EMI Pathé Marconi Studios, Paris, France, Jun. 10-Oct. 19 1979

From Martin Elliott’s book THE ROLLING STONES COMPLETE RECORDING SESSIONS 1962-2012:
Mick Jagger can be heard directing Gangster’s Moll, uttering the different scales for the band to play before a proper vocal take, something you would never hear Keith Richards doing. He would have got there intuitively. It has quite a catchy country ‘lick’ and could have made the grade to an official release. ‘You can see the whole wide world as a gangster’s mistress moll’. Ron Wood can be heard in the background on pedal steel.
