Four Stone Walls
It's about their first studio song where guitar isn't key. An anemic solo, hardly worth that name.
Bass and marimbas baby. A Mick/Brian song?
Came across this while perusing utoob. No idea if it's been previously posted. Clapton plays a Tele rather than a Strat on it. Would be cool to see the Stones jam out on some of their songs like they do here. Enjoy.
"Sounds to me like a jam in a rehearsal room."
In a general sense: Sometimes the best music sounds totally off the cuff and unrehearsed. There are a number of things by the Stones, Neil Young, Dylan, Springsteen, others, that are alternate takes/not polished releases that sound better than their official stuff. There are rehearsal things - jam like - by the Stones that sound better/cooler than the songs on their albums. "Can't You Hear Me Knocking" becomes a jam session, one that the Stones could've played, IMHO, for 20 minutes or more riffing off the Santanaesque vibe of it. The jamming on this cover of UMT may not be Allman Brothers/Grateful Dead/Neil and Crazy Horse out there length or sound, but it works for what it is, taking UMT a bit beyond just playing a cover of it.
