If you were to create a 'stones by numbers' track, as the one to pattern the archetypal stones song...one that all pretenders could try to emulate this would be it.

It has everything just inside of 4 minutes... controversy, debauchery, killer riff, audience call and response (I said yeah I said yeah I said yeah I said...WOOOOO!), and bobby keys.

It's not my favourite track but it's up there.

This is a single that sells an album.


An instant classic indeed!!!! Hard to sit still with this one!

It's one of the most excellent examples of what rock'n'roll is. Possibly their best single ever.

And they liked it so much they inverted it (kinda) for Sad Sad Sad.

But why did they cut one round of the riff for live performances after 1971?

There's one performance (Marquee) where Keith goes around twice because Charlie didn't come in so it goes four but they've been playing it three forever.

Maybe just to get right to it? Seems odd, especially since they've been dragging it on longer and longer with each tour.

Rock N Roll doesn't get much better. I hope they resurrect the song if they tour it is a fantatic song.

Nice! That's a tough competition there, a lot to choose from... Cannot disagree, though. Personally I would have put Dylan's "I Believe In You" at least into 'other essentials' list. One of Bob's greatest recordings I think. Probably even his strongest vocal performance ever.

The whole album is excellently recorded and mixed.

I just read that when they played it at Altamont, it was Mick Taylor who suggested it. Never knew that.

I agree, no live version ever matched the chugging, gritty, funky, galloping roll of the studio version. It always seemed too fast in live versions. However sped up it might still be, my favorite live version is when it was the show opener (around '72 or '73). The Robert Frank film (C'sucker Blues) captures that. The best audio version of that is on a bootleg from (what I was told was) the Australian tour of that time, titled "Happy Birthday Nicky." Must have come directly off the sound board because the quality was very good for a boot. The energy is absolutely amazing. The band comes at you like a bullet train head-on and you can't help but move!

Listen to Essen'70. Taylor understood what playing it live was all about. Just like the rest of the band.
