From Martin Elliott’s book THE ROLLING STONES COMPLETE RECORDING SESSIONS 1962-2012:
This t rack perfectly encapsulates the uniqueness of the session. Laughter at the beginning and someone shouts (possibly Ronnie Ronette), ‘I’ve never recorded before’. A false piano intro was laughed at before Phil Spector takes control and starts it off with a 1-2, a 1-2-3-4. The band charge in with an infectious assault of R’n’B. Harmonica, boogie piano and lead guitars and that bottle chiming in the background provide an alternate take to Now I’ve Got A Witness.
