ROLLING STONES UNRELEASED: ‘BABY, WHAT’S WRONG?’ (1963)

Also known as: ‘Honey What’s Wrong’
Written by: Jimmy Reed/Mary Lee Reed
Recorded: IBC Studios, London, England, March 11 1963

From Martin Elliott’s book THE ROLLING STONES COMPLETE RECORDING SESSIONS 1962-2012:
This track wraps up the Stones’ first recording session. The IBC sessions, although now favous and much sought after, were considered as a whole far too rough for a commercial release, much to the band’s disappointment. Honey What’s Wrong is a mendearing-type song and harmonies inspired by Keith Richards leave a lot to be desired. The mix of pop vocals with R&B lead guitar and harmonica did not quite mix. The band were particularly critical of the lack of bass in the mix and wanted the tracks re-cut. This did not happen. a 10-inch acetate of the five tracks was sold by a friend of Brian Jones at an auction in April 1993.
