The intertubes provided the separated tracks from one of the Stones’ most iconic songs (and recordings) of all time. I took those and built a little player that lets you turn each individual track on and off while you listen. Don’t like Charlie’s drums? Turn them off. Want to hear only the lead guitar? Turn everything else off. Want to hear Mick tell Keith to go f**k himself when he flubs a note? Sorry, that’s not on this recording… or any recording that I’m aware of.
But seriously, I love the little imperfections. Just goes to show how unimportant it is to deliver a 100% flawless performance. The little mistakes give it life.
And around the 3:00 minute mark if you isolate the two vocal tracks you can hear Merry Clayton’s voice crack (twice)… that just gives me chills. Immediately after Mick cries “Whoo!”. Damn right, Mick.
