Great song, but a positively bizarre video in the style of the day:

Salt of the Earth

Taken from the Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus TV special of 1968.

Mick Jagger 'Went Unnoticed' at a North Carolina Dive Bar 

Keeping it real at the Thirsty Beaver in the face of modern urban encroachment:





No wonder Mick went there. I mean how could you not?

Interesting that Brown Sugar which the Rolling Stones dropped from their concert setlists for their autumn 2021 tour of the States is still the song they've played the second most in concert:

What interests me more than the top songs though is the ones they've played a dozen times or less right at the bottom of the list. Some of those are the ones I'd now request.

The Stones' most outlandish attempt to offend the straightlaced was probably this LP that they had planned to release in early 1966:





Side A

1. 19th Nervous Breakdown
2. Sad Day
3. Take It or Leave It
4. Think
5. Mother's Little Helper

Side B

6. Goin' Home
7. Sittin' on a Fence
8. Doncha Bother Me
9. Ride on, Baby
10. Looking Tired

Decca took one look at the  Could You Walk on the Water? title though and flatly refused to release any record with that name.

;D

Some of the pictures from that photo shoot ended up on their Big Hits (High Tide and Green Grass) compilation while many of the tracks intended for the stillborn LP ended up on Aftermath.

So Keith Richards turned 80 on December 18th. With Mick Jagger having reached that milestone five months ago, that leaves only new guy Ron Wood not yet an octogenarian. Ron of course has only been with the band for 48 years so understandably he needs a bit more time to catch up.

Incidentally, tickets for their 2024 spring tour of North America are now on sale.

It was just over sixty years ago on 21 February 1964 that the Rolling Stones released the single Not Fade Away which became their first Top Ten hit in the United Kingdom by reaching #3 on the hit charts:

Not Fade Away

On 6 March 1964 it was also released in the United States backed up by I Wanna Be Your Man thus becoming the Stones' first single to be released in the U.S. It got to only #48 on the American Billboard chart though.

But here sixty years later and the Stones are still rolling!
