"I Got The Blues" live at the Marquee Club, London, on March 26th, 1971. Mick Taylor on lead guitar, Bobby Keys (sax) and Jim Price (trumpet).

There was a time (between Beggar's Banquet and Exile) that the Rolling Stones were unbelievably good. Dig out that old copy of "Bedsprings Symphony" and listen to Mick Taylor's lead guitar playing on Tumblin' Dice, or even Angie. Pretend you never heard of the Stones--forget your preconceptions about rockist poses and arrogant divas, and listen to that downhome, southern-fried, swampy, drug-addled, mad dog music on Exile on Main Street and tell me it's NOT the greatest rock record of all time. Somebody say amen.

"Gimme Shelter"
