LOL it’s on Beggar’s Banquet.
Just saw the Stones at the surprise gig in the Echoplex in LA for 20$—I was 5 feet away from Keith and the boys. Mick Taylor came on for Love In Vain and Midnight Rambler; it was awesome. Even Ronnie stepped it way up so he didn’t look like garbage. It’s so great to have Mick T back!!!! I just wish it was more than two songs.
Sounds great !!!
yes LA…..they did some club gigs before the concert in LA area west side….
This song was played live for the first time in the Rock & Roll circus Dec 1968 & then at Hyde Park July 1969. But as every-one know it was Brian Jones is song, however as for his final contribution with the Stones: Autoharp on “You got the Silver” & tribal drums on “Midnight Rambler” & a deleted guitar take on “Honky Tonk Women”.
I was at that show, Ron Woods was on guitar with Kieth, instead of MT, and Billy Preston on piano instead of Nicky (Hopkins?) I don’t remember them doing this song but I do remember them revitalizing “Get off my cloud” so-so show I’m ashamed to say, nothing like the 72 tour
This is absolutely Mick Taylor and they did play this song live on January 18 in 1973. The famous Nicaraguan earthquake victims benefit concert In Los Angeles (USA).
Not any doubt about that at all.
Wood wishes he could play like that. In his dreams only.
This isnt 1973…..it’s Ron Woods playing dobro style slide on his lap…not Mick Taylor. They never played this song until the 90’s.
The beauty of Mick Taylor’s playing is universal – his guitar speaks in a thousand tongues. Absolutely brilliant. For abundant further evidence, listen to The Brussels Affair live recording. (And I’m afraid Mick’s playing immolates poor Brian Jones’ sweet performance in the RnR Circus special.)
Beautiful version of this lovely song!
How can I argue with that. Cheers!
LOL even tho the rock n roll cricus was the lowest point in brians life.. that version is still the best!! this song is just Brian to a tea full stop. The lyrics are about him, the music and lyrics are both prefect to his state of life at the time this was made (at his lowest) he makes this song teary for any real stones fan
Sorry but brian jones was a vegetable by the time they recorded Beggars Banquet. The rock n roll circus show is proof of that. This is a fantastic version!
great version of not so many thanks
It rips my heart out – Mick Taylor is awesome!
simply the best
they needed Brian on slide he was much much much better!
keef if your out there listen to this
