Written by: Jimmy Reed
Recorded: IBC Studios, London, England, March 11 1963
From Martin Elliott’s book THE ROLLING STONES COMPLETE RECORDING SESSIONS 1962-2012:
An impressive version of Jimmy Reed’s Bright Lights, Bic City. Originally this aforementioned song had been recorded by Little Boy Blue and the Blue Boys. Mick Jagger’s co-musicians at the time were Bob Beckwith, Allen Etherington and Dick Taylor. Now with the new band members, the song epitomised a young Stones sound, Jagger performing in a relaxed manner while Ian Stewart provided an excellent piano background. The enthusiasm could not be missed by anyone listening.
