MORE STONES UNRELEASED TRACKS

Written by: Jagger/Richard
Recorded: Olympic Sound Studios, London, England, Oct. 17-31 1970
Guest musicians: Nicky Hopkins (piano)

From Martin Elliott’s book THE ROLLING STONES COMPLETE RECORDING SESSIONS 1962-2012:
Again an instrumental but featuring one of Keith Richards’ riffs extracted from his extensive repertoire.This time it has an air of familiarity. It worried Keith that he riff he thought to be new may in fact have been a sound taken from his subconscious. The sessions that produced these tracks were strongly influenced by Mick Taylor. It’s his wah-wah lead guitar that rocks most of the tracks against the piano playing of Nicky Hopkins. Charlie Watts was beginning to sound like a heavy rock drummer pounding to keep up with the electric melodies.
