I am putting this track up as it reminds me of The Cornshed. It is not the normal cover that I would have expected at that august and now, much lamented late venue. However, it was played so well by a duo I have come to admire: ‘The Project’, that I am including it here. They didn’t play it bombastically, but reread it well. I liked it.
I never really ‘got’ The Stones and even now I am merely a dabbler in their vast oeuvre, but this is one of their songs that I really like. It is very sixties: rebellious, yet firmly grounded within the Judeo Christian Christian tradition it never really seeks to supplant.
And yes: I did see the irony of being the MC when this was played…
