Good album. I enjoyed it, but have been listening more to the Gregg Allman reissues, i.e Laid Back & Gregg Allman Tour

Her vocals are a bit syrupy, but not a bad cover.

I agree, not enough "twang", when it's only her on vocals, I can visualize Olivia Newton John

Why keith?
Why?

Because the Stones can’t seem to suss out who is a minor talent/celebrity and who is a real musician.
Cheryl Crow is a minor talent,I saw her open for the Eagles when her first record had just came out and she was ok.
Then she gained fame and starfckd her way to a celebrity career.doing the James Bond theme,duetting some pseudo country with Kid Rock,glomming onto to Henley and Richards.
The woman was a disaster on the four flicks dvd,she singlehandedly destroyed Honky Tonk,yelling the lyrics, she couldn’t dance and had no chemistry with Mick.he could’ve been dancing with a mop stick and it would’ve been better.
File her under - people Stones fans think they should like because the band does.
She sucks.

I think her vocals on Live With Me from Miami 1994, Voodoo uncut, suck, but she improved on Honky Tonk Women from Live Licks. I like her, but feel her first three albums are her best.

I heard the worst on this album and it is nice cover of that Stones song.

From an interview with Jane Stevenson of The Toronto Sun:

Who was the most fun?

I don’t even know how to answer that. I mean I had a blast with Keith because I had two days of him in a studio in New York City, Germano Studios, with him and Steve Jordan, just the three of us. And I mean that’s just pure joy on speed. The most fun. He’s so brilliant. He’s just amazing.

I could never really hear Mick's backing vocal on VL's The Worst. I did like the youtube version with Keith and his country friends. That was a tremendously great version. Interesting the song is being reworked again with Sheryl Crow for an official album release. I'm buying.

:42 seconda in. This version may help you focus on listening. Mick is quite audible.

Any earlier working version with Keith singing harmony where Mick does.

Okay, then now I'm confused on why you asked "Why did the thread title get fixed to be wrong?"

although the very last thing is a bit of a head shaker:

... and Johnny Cash's estate has allowed her to cut a virtual duet with the Man in Black on "Redemption Day," a songs of hers he covered toward the end of his life. She hopes to get the album into stores near the end of the year.

... and more confused on why that's a head shaker.

Had I Googled it I would've known and now I know why you were confused about me being confused.

I never understood what others claim not to hear...The Worst as sung by Keith with Mick on back up vox is sublime....love the harmony here...one of my favorites...so good.

No way that’s Mick. It’s Keef singing the harmony himself. You can hear it even more clearly in the harmony parts later in the song.
Keith also on the earlier version of course. Clearly he wasn’t completely happy with that, so he did another (or more) takes to get it perfect. My guess is Mick wasn’t even present when Keith recorded The Worst.

"The Worst" with Keith Richards - [www.youtube.com]

Full album: [www.youtube.com]

thumbs down...too sappy.

And how exactly was that "too sappy?" Because she changed the lyric from "guy" to "girl?" It's basically the same as the original...a very good cover. Gotta come up with something more than "too sappy" my guy. eye rolling smiley

Sappy because of how it sounds to me. Keith’s version had emotion hers is some kind of singing alright, she can do that, but it comes across as sappy.

Not sure changing girl back to guy could rescue this. Same as that change didn’t make it sappy. She does.

That’s just my take on it.

Keith singing that in Dublin last year brought a tear to my eye. Bernard was a great foil for him on it.

There are early versions of The Worst with Mick singing with Keith,I have them on my Voodoo outtakes but Don Was somehow completely missed the mark and used a later version with Keiths voice doubled.
I can see his point, why would you want a Jagger/ Richards duet on a country song on a Stones album.
Remember when I had that “fire Don Was” thread awhile back?

I’ve seen a vinyl bootleg with some Voodoo outtakes on it, are they worth having?
Sounds like it!

Dude. That’s Mick on vocals backing him up. The harmony is clear. 2 voices.

Er, Mick is singing with Keith on the album version...

From timeisonourside.com:

"
That's very country, isn't it? Keith sings so pretty on that. I do his backgrounds, and it sounds so Okie. When I listened back to it, I said, Is that really me singing? It's really strange".

Got to give her props for songwriting. Could have sworn Lonely Alone was a Willie Nelson song but no it's Crow. Tailored perfectly ......

Wow you’re right I listened really close and buried in about 10 overdubs I could hear Mick,Great job Don , I mean it was like another Country Honk.Well If Country Honk was being remade by a Stones cover band with a hack producer.

Hmmm... I always liked the original, to me one of the best tracks in VOODOO LOUNGE. But this version leaves me totally cold. It is nicely written song for any kind of arrangement and interpretation, but somehow it doesn't sound like fitting to her mouth and voice. A one listen is enough for me. I cherish the idea of picking up this latter-day, not-so-well-known song, though.

I liked it, but she did change the melody drastically in places.

To me it sounded like she was reaching or trying to reconstruct the 'actual' melody of which Keith just gave us cues (by his idiosyncratic way to sing/interpret melodies). But something crucial was lost in the process.

Yes but it sounds like they layered it for some reason,I can’t be sure but it’s a horrible recording.someone said earlier they thought it was all Keith and I even had to look at the cd cover after you said it was also Mick to make sure.
I have about five different outtakes and they’re all better than Voodoo.
Just the brickwalling alone screws it up,all the subtleties of the song are taken away for instance the fiddle is grating because it’s too damn loud.
They need to get rid of everyone involved in Voodoo and Bigger Bang or we’ll never see another great record.
