The version with Clapton has been my favorite since buying the 12" on blue vinyl in 1979.....

However, for live versions, the Brussels one from Bedspring Symphony (is this also the one that made it onto the recent GHS Box Set?) has always been THE live version....

My favourite version of Brown Sugar is this rehearsal from 2005:
[www.youtube.com]

This is a very loose version with Charlie & Mick at their absolute best!
And without vocals and sax - but you won't have a feeling of anything is missing.

Oh dear. Even during rehearsal warmup Keith is misfiring the riff of Start Me Up!

The version during the Julliard school press conference 2005 was great, I don't recall there being any add-ons there as well, n'est ce-pas`? It had a marvellous ONNYA anyway.

Definitely this version.

Recorded December 1970 at Keith's birthday party at Olympic Studios. Best ever.

Truck 1975 NYC.
The parts that I heard fascinated me

Were you there?


plexi

No.
There are incomplete versions on bootleg and some scenes on film. Rough and strong


Here it is, just in case there's anyone here who's never heard it before.

I actually like houston 2nd show 1972..from the L&G movie...
If the sound was a different mix it would be amazing.
Pretty flawless and rocks.

I don’t know about best, or even favorite. But the version I remember making hair on my arms stand up when I first heard it was from Nasty Music, which is the same from Brussels I believe.

I think the version from the 1970 European tour is pretty cool with the extended solo.

The 1969 Altamont version is closest to the original Muscle Shoals version.

The 69 or 70 thing is very interesting.

When I drafted my posting my gut reaction was indeed to write 1969. But I then checked Martin Elliott's books and confirmed the 1970.

The original version of the song was recorded on, or about, 1st Dec 1969 in Muscle Shoals (shortly before Altamont!). If you check this authoritative web site [www.whereseric.com] you'll see that Eric simply cannot have been at Muscle Shoals in December 1969 as he was touring the UK at the time.

A year later, still long before the legal release, the Clapton version was recorded as described at Keith's birthday party/session at Olympic. That year Eric had finished his US tour on Dec 6th, so he could easily have been back in Barnes by 18th December. [www.whereseric.com]

All the Stones books I've read are saying this birthday party / recording took place in December 1970.

There are no good version except for the original. Its a song the Stones could never play well live.

Wow, you have great expectations. If what you're saying is true, they never nailed a song on stage at all smiling smiley

I prefer the 72/73 versions. I like the arrangement. The taylor solo after the sax solo gets me everytime. Sometimes his guitar comes in like sledge hammer.

I remember being very underwhelmed after finally getting my hands on the version featuring Clapton. Could’ve got a better sound by rolling Brian’s coffin.
