Los Rolling




















Time for a couple of outtakes from the October ´69 Let It Bleed sessions by Los Rolling, as the Stones are known in Spain for some reason. From a boot called Itchy Fingers, which sports the same cover image as the Spanish version of the official Sticky Fingers album. The Iberian authorities thought the famous Warhol zip cover a tad too obscene. This one´s a lot more tasteful indeed...

These are unfinished working versions of course, and it´s easy too see why they didn´t make the final cut in this form. Which doesn´t mean they´re not fun though. Made me wonder why the Stones haven´t released their own take on a Genuine Bootleg Series/Archives yet. There must be tons of great stuff in the vaults. You can make money that way Mick! Easy money. You know, dinero. Anyone got a clue why this didn´t happen yet? Please leave a comment. I´m just plain curious.

My guess on why no official Stones bootlegs would lie in the relationship between them and Allen Klein, who owns their early masters.

Good guess Private Beach, you may be on to something there. One doesn´t mess with big bad Allen...

"Jivin Sister Fannie" appeared on the Stones Abko compilation release "Metamorphosis". I had it on vinyl out of the cut-out bin at Kmart when I was like 11 or 12!

That´s right. Mix is a little different as I recall though. I Don´t Know Why is on that album (which never got a cd release as far as I know) too.

Good stuff. I like it better than what DID make the cut.

Where did you find these?

Thomas, you can find these on a great boot called Itchy Fingers. Now search the web I´d say... And for more Stones outtakes from this era you may want to look for a great boot called Hillside Blues.
