Rolling Stones unreleased: Torn and Frayed outtake (instrumental take)

Written by: Jagger/Richard
Recorded: Sumet-Burnet Recording, Dallas, TX, USA, June 23 1972
From the Dallas Observer:
Not till recently did I discover the story behind these 25 tracks, recorded between 8 p.m. on June 23 and 2 a.m. June 24 at the legendary Sumet-Burnet Recording Studio. Seems the band had fallen apart in KC the night before and needed a pit stop to put its shit back together. And so they pulled into Sumet-Burnet to run through a new set list. But a 4 p.m. start time stretched to 8 p.m., at which point it became “a lot of musicians sitting in, standing up, switching off on instruments, dozing, humming breaks, going for beer, and playing maybe one song all the way through,” per Rolling Stone‘s Robert Greenfield in his book S.T.P: A Journey Through America With the Rolling Stones.
This is prime Stones — long, deep tokes off blues jams that go on and on and on (and some, not long enough). There are nods to Slim Harpo; Robert Johnson covers; a “Satisfaction” jam that’s polishes the golden-oldie till it shines even now like some brand-new thing; a “Gimme Shelter” instrumental that sounds in spots infinitely more druggy and dangerous than The Official Recording; 20 minutes of Exile‘s “Let it Loose” and other untitled free-for-alls. For starters. So rip this joint. Or, better still, spark it. (Ref. torn and frayed outtake)
