Some Girls

Here are a couple outtakes from Beggar’s Banquet. “Pay Your Dues” is “Street Fighting Man” with different words and a different mix. The inaudible violin is by Ric Grech, and extra vocals are by Jim King, and Roger Chapman, members of Family.
“Sweet Lucy” is a Bill Wyman composition recorded in 1968 which turned up on Metamorphosis (1975). I’ve never heard it but I’ve read Bill sings lead and this is obviously Mick.
“Still A Fool” is a 10 minute version of a Muddy Waters song. I’m not surprised it didn’t make it onto one of the best albums by anyone, ever, but it’s worth giving a spin. They manage to maintain the vibe all the way through.
“Memo From Turner” is not probably an outtake, but was recorded the at the same time (March 1968) as “Pay Your Dues”, and comes from the soundtrack to Performance and features Ry Cooder, who Keef apparently didn’t get on with. They may have been trying him out as a possible replacement for Brian Jones. It’s a great tune. It’s great not to buy the whole soundtrack. It’s a cool movie I once watched on a double bill with A Clockwork Orange tripping out of my skull.
