Does Keith sing harmony on Last Time? If so, that would be my favorite. If not, it is still a great harmony.

I know your title was specifically "with Mick", but his harmony w Ronnie on "Breathe on Me" is simply beautiful.

Is not the term "keith harmonizatation" an oxymoron?spinning smiley sticking its tongue out

Yeah i think you're right. Rather than harmonise, perhaps it's more like he weaves around Mick's vocal lines.

That's a joke right ? Tell Me has some of the worst backing vocals of the era. Even Dylan can harmonise better than that.

The whole Side 2 of Exile:
leading the choir in "Virginia"
"Torn & Frayed" one of his best ever
"Sweet Black Angel" and "Loving Cup

I was listening to an outtake of "wild Horses" yesterday, w/o his BU Vox, and it hit me again how beautiful his harmonies in chorus are.

I'd vote Torn and Frayed, Keith did great on the live debut as well.

I was going to say Torn and Frayed, but give me all of Exile side 2.

Pure magic.

Gotta say most of Exile. Someone mentioned Brown Sugar and if I recall the liner notes, it's actually Mick doing very Keith-like harmonies. I was surprised to study a lot of album liner notes and find that Mick had me totally fooled doing harmonies I long assumed to be Keith.

There's just too many great ones to pick a single song for me...it would kinda be like picking your favorite "Buck Owens-Don Rich" harmony (which I always thought that the "Keith" harmonies owed more to their style than any other) but "If You Need Me" off 12 x 5 and the 72/73 live versions of "You Can't Always Get What You Want" stand out...

Keith and Ron's back up vocals on the studio version of Miss You is also surprisingly good. Bernard, Lisa and Blondie have never managed to top that on the live versions, imo.

This is one of the best parts of the song. The more ragged live versions from 78-82 which were great didn't re-create this. And of course the slick versions of recent tours didn't either.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and suppose that heavy hours of studio work were required to create that harmony sound on Miss You, BTMMR and some other studio tracks from that era. Just listen to how Keith and Woody sound live (which I love) from that period. It almost seems impossible that they could make such smooth harmonizing without a fair amount of studio trickery involved. They could never pull off those "do do do do do" backups on Hang Fire live either. It's probably a blessing for all of us that they were wise enough not to even try.

yawning smiley OK I got that one wrong, lol but I do know there are some tracks where Mick does some very Keith-esque harmonies. Color me embarrassed on Sugar though.

On Take It Or Leave it, is that Keith in the background during the "Oh la la la la ta ta ta ..." part? I like the harmonizing on that song.

I would have gone back farther to the 64-65 era, but I wasn't sure if it was Keith on the majority of backing vocals, or if it was Brian & Bill

Also not certain (though this was covered in another forum but with no definitive conclusion) is the back up vocal echoes on 'Yesterday's Papers.' Some say it is Brian. Anyway, I like any of the back up vocals on Stones songs that are not done by MJ.

Someone above mentioned weaving around Mick's lines rather than harmonizing--that's what Keith did best in the early days when he had the clear, high registers, making his vocal backing an indispensable presence almost like a lead guitar or horn part, as in Fortune Teller.





As for harmonizing with Mick, though Mick is certainly on the backing of the chorus harmony of No Use In Crying, and overdubbed more than once, I'm pretty sure Keith is in there as well, as an example of his soulful mid-period sound, before the booze and the ciggies altered it forever to that trademark bar room growl of latter days.
