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?
Er, Mick is singing with Keith on the album version...
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".
- Mick Jagger, 1994
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.
Aren't there only two voices on the bridges, Keith's and Mick's?
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.
audun-egNo 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.Quote
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.
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.
Dude. That’s Mick on vocals backing him up. The harmony is clear. 2 voices.
