searching thru youtube and came across this rare find ? never heard this track before ,it goes for a few seconds ,to me it sounds like jagger and the stones ? if you go to youtube , just type in } rolling stones rare unreleased studio outtake
god talk about a tease ,please guys check it out ? bro thinks it could be from the goats head soup session , i think it could be from undercover sessions ? yeah what do you guys think ,love to get more info on this } is this rare take or fake take ?
That is quite a find. I'd love to know what it is...it definitely sounds like the GOATS HEAD SOUP or IORR sessions. That sounds like Billy Preston on keyboards. Nice harmony vocal by Keith but it sounds like he might be singing a complete different lyric just like on "I Can't Help It." Great track and further proof of the countless gems we've never heard.
Thanks, Rumple21 and StonesRock! It really reminds me of "Fiji Jim." I wonder if this is the reworked version of the song from the Voodoo Lounge sessions? There was a rumor this song and "So Young" were cut as a test to see about adding them to the Virgin reissues as bonus tracks. The released version of "So Young" credits Chris Kimsey as producer and not Don Was which would seem to bear this out. If this is the track, it would explain why Mick's voice sounds a bit deeper than it did in the early 1970s and also why the track has such a retro sound to it.

Doesnt say much for what you think of the Stones output if you think a 45 second snippet of a song with a barely audible vocal is 'better than the album tracks' - especially if those lyrics are in any way accurate. They're barely intelligible English
Gazza, I love the Stones, have all their albums, lots of boots and play and sing over 100 of their songs in my band. But IMO their best outtakes are better than most of Dirty Work, BTB, ABB to name a few. I don't think you could possibly know about what I "think of the Stones output." People are posting their opinions here and that was mine. Not everything the Stones release is their best stuff, IMO and you'd think you'd be used to a little critique of your beloved Stones if you're operating rocksoff.org. Maybe not. Regardless, the “rare” outtake “snippet” sounds great to me.

Perfectly valid opinion,..but you seriously think this is in THAT category?
I don't think you could possibly know about > what I "think of the Stones output."
Well..I do...as you've stated that this is better than whats on VL and have just stated above how you rate their best outtakes. So thats what you happen to "think"...

which youre entitled to

You obviously dont know what I "think of the Stones output" then! My "beloved" Stones?? WTF are you on about? I can be as critical about the Stones as anyone. More so than most in fact. Thats not the point. The point is I find it bizarre that you reckon a 45 second rehearsal clip with dummy lyrics is superior to the songs that actually made the final cut.
Regardless, > the “rare” outtake “snippet” sounds great to me.
"Great" ? Interesting adjective. Its nice that its been unearthed (and thanks to whoever did so), but 'great' ? As in 'Gimme Shelter' ? Please tell me youre kidding.
For the record, some folks on the 'Tell Me' thread reckon it sounds like a Woodstock rehearsal from May 1978, as the keyboard style sounds like Ian McLagan. So, if true it seems to be a tour rehearsal as opposed to a studio outtake.

well this is decent, and it is exciting too, but lets not become overexcited and write this into the 'lost classics' category!!! it does not belong there. its a basic rocknroll riff with very basic lyrics. nothing more nothing less.
I didn't think it was Chuck on electric piano. I thought it sounded more like Billy Preston than Mac as I posted earlier. I agreed with the earlier poster who said Mick's voice sounded deeper, older than his early 70s voice. This led me to speculate it might have been from the VOODOO LOUNGE sessions where they remixed and overdubbed vocals on the existing "So Young" demo. The chorus around the 40 second mark reminded me of "Fiji Jim"'s melody line. It is of course equally possible it is one of the uncirculated UNDERCOVER outtakes like "Eliza Upchink" or "Angeline" for all we know. I feel that the negative response this thread received here and in the TELL ME forum is because of my posting in the latter. I wasn't trying to declare the Holy Grail had been unearthed, but this discovery hadn't picked up a lot of attention and I wanted to make more people aware of it to share and to see if someone could positively ID the track, and more importantly, hopefully convince the owner of the acetate to share more. Given the lacklustre response this received, I wouldn't bother if I were in his shoes. Most people groaned and treated it like "Extreme Western Grip." Personally, I love the feel of the track and hope the full thing makes its way out sometime in my life.

i agree on the mac lagan sound. could be woodstock may 78 rehearsals, too.
