Sweet Virginia has got to be the song playing on the Wurlitzer juke box seen in the Las Vegas bar room photo found on the LP inner sleeve. We move through the country tinged Torn and Frayed and find Southern country music with it's clear influence from Gram Parsons.
Perhaps the earliest LP influences are revealed on Sweet Black Angel. The new generation of Rolling Stones ballads is unveiled in Loving Cup as well as the continuation of the Jamaican influence with the steel drums that come in atwhich are unfortunately, mixed down in the LP release of the song. There are alternate takes with different mixes that highlight the steel drum sound. Side 3 brings us to Keith's brilliant Happy. His strongest song to date and worthy of being released as a single from the record.
Turd On The Run is a working title that for some strange reason stuck. A simple arrangement in capo'd open G with two finger chords that personifies the Stones reputation for producing "perfect noise".
The song is bluesy, rural, and Appalachian. Hard blues follow in the gritty slide of Ventilator Blues. Listen carefully for the odd time signature of Charlie's drumming This was one of Jagger's favorite songs from the record. The portion of the song heard on the record is edited out of a 30 minute jam. The wonderful ballad Let It Loose closes the side. The incredible sound heard is an electric guitar being played through a "Leslie" organ amplifier. A song whose musical track was completed in one take.
Another great ballad follows with organ and back-up singers that present a heavy gospel music influence. A song for a period of time that was lacking a theme until Jagger came up with the "At Sea" motif heard in Soul Survivor.
The riff on this closing track was so strong that Keith couldn't help but reuse it on the release It Must Be Hell. The music is a wide ranging landscape. Jimmy Miller. Keith Richards. Sticky Fingers. Charlie Watts. Ronnie Wood. Net links:. Killed the Rolling Stones. YouTube links:.
