This was "released" as a big dump on Dec 31 to protect copyright. Scroll back 6 months and you should see more about it.

Nearer to Robert Johnson's original. Fine performance.

Love in vain (early version) - march1969

Actually it's from May 1968. It definitely has a BB vibe.

@dcba:

someone in the yt-commentars says ...

"Same dobro used on this LIV also used for early take of Sister Morphine and released You Got The Silver."

so can't it be 1969 ?

If it's in a YT comment it must be true ;-)

Weahd that discussion when the tracks appeared on YT on 2019-12-31 and what's obvious is there is a world of difference between this version of LIV and the one we know (on the LIB album).
So I ventured to say it's from 1968 not 69 and much to my surprise (and delight) the supremely knowledgeable Nico zentgraf id the track as being recorded on may 23, 1968.

Acoustic guitars: Keith Richards & Dave Mason
Lead vocal: Mick Jagger
Harmony vocal: Keith Richards
Background vocals: Mick Jagger & Keith Richards
Harmonica: Brian Jones

I can't really hear Mason anywhere, though.

@dcba:

thanks, i should have looked it up at nzentgraf too,
so now we know better and can embed this version into
the timeline of the stones,

it is always interesting how songs and versions develop.

There is a thread here, too, where we discussed this when the tracks were copyright released by ABKCO.

This early 1968 version proves it again!

Compare it to the LIB version and here is what The Rolling Stones are all about. They dig themselves into a song (either from another artist or written by themselves) and finally come up with what I call "a Rolling Stones song". And in 98% of the cases it's what a true Stones fan wants to hear. Sometimes, under pressure of circumstances, they could have made the odd song even better, but hey, they are human alright.
The other day I compared (again) Roadrunner by the Pretty Things and the (not good enough for the band to release it) version by The Rolling Stones. My goodness, the Stones were such a powerband with Charlie and Bill laying down the fundamentals in a way no other band could come even close. What a luxery it was for Keith, Brian and Mick to freewheel on that.

The best version will always be the Ladies and Gentlemen 1972 performance,where Mick Taylor plays one of the greatest solos ever and Jagger outdoes the original Robert Johnson vocal.

This is definitely the track from the studio outtakes released temporarily via youtube on Dec 31, 2019. It was recorded at Olympic Sound Studios in May 1968.

There are even better highlights in that set, such as rough, instrumental early versions of "Stray Cat Blues" and "Midnight Rambler", and a Country-Boogie instrumental version of "Honky Tonk Women".

If the rights to these recordings were in the Stones' quarters, they would have been released in a Dylan type "Bootleg Series" long time ago, I suppose.
