Edit for headphones, December 2021. Otis Redding died in a plane crash on December 10, 1967, a month before this song was released (January 8, 1968) and three days after he recorded it. It was by far his biggest hit and was also the first ever posthumous number 1 single in the US.

Guitarist Steve Cropper said that Otis stayed at a boathouse (in Sausalito, across the bay from San Francisco), where he got the idea of the ship coming in. That's about all he had: 'I watch the ships come in and I watch them roll away again.' Steve Cropper took that and finished the lyrics.

Redding recorded this with Booker T. & the MG's, the house band for Stax Records.

(SITTIN' ON) THE DOCK OF THE BAY
(Steve Cropper/Otis Redding)

sittin' in the mornin' sun
I'll be sittin' when the evenin' comes
watching the ships roll in
then I watch 'em roll away again, yeah
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
watchin' the tide roll away, ooh
I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
wastin' time

I left my home in Georgia
headed for the Frisco Bay
'cause I've had nothin' to live for
it look like nothin's gonna come my way
so I'm just gon' sitt' on the dock of the bay
watchin' the tide roll away, ooh
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
wastin' time

looks like nothing's gonna change
everything, still remains the same
I can't do what ten people tell me to do
so I guess I'll remain the same, yes

sittin' here restin' my bones
and this loneliness won't leave me alone, listen
two thousand miles I roam
just to make this dock my home
now I'm just gon' sitt' at the dock of the bay
watchin' the tide roll away, ooh ye
sittin' on the dock of the bay
wastin' time

Edit 1a (r&r circus) for headphones. This one from the "Rock And Roll Circus" also needed a bit of enhancement. The "Circus" was shot on film December 11, 1968. When Rolling Stones founder Brian Jones died in 1969, the studio version of this song took on new meaning, as lyrics like "Our love is like our music, it's here and then it's gone" made it a fitting elegy.
The uploader would like to add: if only there had been a little more friendship, well, then Brian's life story could have ended so very much happier, he might even have been still alive... if only there had been a little more friendship, patience and tolerance...

MEAN TOWN BLUES
(John Dawson Winter III aka Johnny Winter)

Lord my mother she done told me and my father done told me
My father told me too, yeah my mother she done told me
And my father done told me, my father told me too, it's a mean old town to live
in by yourself
Yeah, work for a dollar or several thousand, could not save a dime
You know I worked for a dollar, or several thousand, man couldn't save a dime
Ain't nobody worried and there isn't nobody's crying
Yeah, I got my hands outside to get a hold on, try to get some of my cash
Lord I try to get my hands outside to get a hold on, try to get some of my cash
It's those great big smiles to keep us out of that trash
So I packed up my suitcase and I move on down, hit that lonesome road
You know I packed up my suitcase and I hit that lonesome, move on down
I'm still crying to make it when the day was done

Edit 2 for headphones. Wider sound & less channel separation. Why? When I first heard this song with headphones it sounded poor: lead and backing vocals in the middle, bass, drums & rythm guitar at the left, solo guitar at the right.
That's just not the way it should have been done... and it is just not how it sounds when listening to a vinyl lp with headphones...

Recorded December 3 - 8 , 1965. Released in the UK on the album "Aftermath" in April, 1966. Released in the US as a single on July 2, 1966.
Source file of this edit is on "Aftermath" (UK version) (Japanese mini lp remastered 2006 uicy-93021).

Vox mando guitar & tamboura: Brian Jones. Lead vocals: Mick Jagger. Acoustic guitar & background vocals: Keith Richards (though I think Mick does background vocals). Bass: Bill Wyman. Drums: Charlie Watts.

The song deals with the sudden popularity of prescribed calming drugs among housewives, and the potential hazards of overdose or addiction. The drug in question is variously assumed to be meprobamate or diazepam (Valium).

MOTHER'S LITTLE HELPER
(Jagger/Richards)

what a drag it is getting old

"kids are different today,"
I hear ev'ry mother say
mother needs something today to calm her down
and though she's not really ill
there's a little yellow pill
she goes running for the shelter of a mother's little helper
and it helps her on her way, gets her through her busy day

"things are different today"
I hear ev'ry mother say
cooking fresh food for a husband's just a drag
so she buys an instant cake and she burns her frozen steak
and goes running for the shelter of a mother's little helper
and two help her on her way, get her through her busy day

doctor please, some more of these
outside the door, she took four more
what a drag it is getting old

"men just aren't the same today"
I hear ev'ry mother say
they just don't appreciate that you get tired
they're so hard to satisfy, you can tranquilize your mind
so go running for the shelter of a mother's little helper
and four help you through the night, help to minimize your plight

doctor please, some more of these
outside the door, she took four more
what a drag it is getting old

"life's just much too hard today,"
I hear ev'ry mother say
the pusuit of happiness just seems a bore
and if you take more of those, you will get an overdose
no more running for the shelter of a mother's little helper
they just helped you on your way, through your busy dying day

MONKEY MAN
(Jagger/Richards)

I'm a fleabit peanut monkey
all my friends are junkies
that's not really true

I'm a cold Italian pizza
I could use a lemon squeezer
what you do?

but I've been bit and I've been tossed around
by every she-rat in this town
have you, babe?

well, I am just a monkey man
I'm glad you are a monkey woman too

I was bitten by a boar
I was gouged and I was gored
but I pulled on through

yes, I'm a sack of broken eggs
I always have an unmade bed
don't you?

well, I hope we're not too messianic
or a trifle too satanic
we love to play the blues

well I am just a monkey man
I'm glad you are a monkey
monkey woman too, babe!

I'm a monkeyyy! I'm a monkeyyy!
I'm a monkeyyy man! I'm a monkeyyy man!
I'm a monkey! I'm a monkeyyy! I'm a monkeyyy! I'm a monkeyyy!
I'm a ma ma ma ma monkey!
a ma ma ma ma monkey!
I'ma ma ma ma ma monkey!

"Free" was an English rock band formed in London in 1968. They disbanded in 1973 and lead singer Paul Rodgers went on to become a frontman of the band "Bad Company" along with Simon Kirke on drums. Lead guitarist Paul Kossoff formed "Back Street Crawler" and died from drug-induced heart failure at the age of 25 in 1976. Bassist Andy Fraser formed "Sharks".

The band was famed for its sensational live shows and nonstop touring. However, early studio albums did not sell very well – until the release of "Fire and Water" which featured the massive hit "All Right Now". The song helped secure them a place at the huge Isle of Wight Festival 1970 where they played to 600,000 people.

By the early 1970s, Free was one of the biggest-selling British blues rock groups; by the time the band dissolved in 1973, they had sold more than 20 million albums around the world and had played more than 700 arena and festival concerts. "All Right Now," remains a rock staple, and had been entered into ASCAP's "One Million" airplay singles club.

Rolling Stone has referred to the band as "British hard rock pioneers". The magazine ranked Rodgers No. 55 in its list of the "100 Greatest Singers of All Time", while Kossoff was ranked No. 51 in its list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time".

The song has an impressive charts history, a # 1 hit in over 20 charts, e.g.:
Netherlands 1
France 1
Italy 1
Austria 1
Denmark 1
Norway 1
Sweden 1
UK 2
Switzerland 4
US 4
Germany 5
Belgium 10

Still I thought it was about time to pump up the volume, the sound, the bass, the base drums... hope you like it, let me know! By the way, this is the stereo single version, which in my opinion is far far better than the polished album version, that has a rhythm guitar that sounds totally different (lacks the repetitive striking of the guitar strings). This single version is also on the album ("Fire And Water" Japan UICY 9132 2001 remaster).

Personnel:
Andy Fraser - bass, piano (1968–1971, 1972; died 2015)
Simon Kirke - drums (1968–1971, 1972–1973)
Paul Kossoff - guitar (1968–1971, 1972–1973; died 1976)
Paul Rodgers - lead vocals, piano (1968–1971, 1972–1973)

later members:
John "Rabbit" Bundrick - keyboards (1972–1973)
Tetsu Yamauchi - bass (1972–1973)
Wendell Richardson - guitar (1973)

ALL RIGHT NOW
(Andy Fraser/Paul Rodgers)

there she stood in the street
smiling from her head up to her feet
I said "Hey, what is this"
now baby, maybe maybe she's in need of a kiss
I said "Hey, what's your name baby"
maybe we can see things the same
now don't you wait or hesitate
let's move before they raise the parking rent

all right now, baby, it's all right now
all right now, baby, it's all right now

let me tell you now

I took her home to my place
watching ev'ry move on her face
she said "Look, what's your game, baby
are you tryin' to put me in shame?"
I said "slow don't go so fast,
don't you think that love can last?"
she said "Love, Lord above,
now you're tryin'

Edit (Sullivan) for headphones, October 2021. The Rolling Stones on the Ed Sullivan show. Brian Jones played slide guitar AND harmonica on the studio version. Brian's outstanding musical capabilities made this song to this day the only time a blues song has ever topped the British pop charts: it reached number one in the UK Singles Chart on december 5, 1964 where it stayed for one week.

The studio version of "Little Red Rooster" was recorded September 2, 1964, at Regent Sound in London. Others state that it was recorded at the Chess studio's in Chicago, which I doubt, for in that studio several outstanding early Rolling Stones songs were recorded in true stereo.

Released as a UK single on November 13, 1964. Released in the US on the album "The Rolling Stones Now" on February 12, 1965. Released November 4, 1966 on the album "Big Hits (High Tide And Green Grass)".

Electric slide guitar & harmonica: Brian Jones. Vocals: Mick Jagger. Acoustic guitar: Keith Richards. Drums: Charlie Watts. Bass: Bill Wyman.

LITTLE RED ROOSTER
(Willie Dixon)

I am the little red rooster
too lazy to crow for day
I am the little red rooster
too lazy to crow for day

keep everything in the farm yard upset in every way

the dogs begin to bark and hounds begin to howl
dogs begin to bark and hounds begin to howl
watch out strange cat people
little red rooster's on the prowl

if you see my little red rooster
please drive him home
if you see my little red rooster
please drive him home
ain't had no peace in the farm yard
since my little red rooster's been gone

Edit 1 for hadphones. The famous song, an edit for more bass, Keith's stirring bass. A song that - if played loud enough - will still hit the charts... Enjoy Brian on the organ, who plays the most stirring sound on the song; he's fabulous!

No sounds were added in this edit - it's pure Stones you hear.

Sorry for deleting the original Mick Jagger live singing, but the sound of the backing tape was so crappy, couldn't resist replacing its entire sound with this edit.

Recorded in August and November, 1966. Released as a UK single on January 13, 1967; also released in the US in February of 1967 on the album "Between the Buttons".

Organ: Brian Jones. Lead & backing vocals: Mick Jagger. Drums: Charlie Watts. Piano: Jack Nitzsche. Electric guitar, bass, piano & backing vocals: Keith Richards.

Taub was Jules Biharis' mother's maiden name. Jules, Lester, Saul and Joe Bihari were American businessmen of Hungarian Jewish origins. They were the founders of Modern Records in Los Angeles and its subsidiaries such as Meteor Records based in Memphis. The Bihari brothers were significant players in the process that transformed black music, rhythm and blues, into rock and roll which appealed to white audiences in the 1950s. Trust me, this world wasn't this world if it wasn't for the Jews...

LADY JANE
(Jagger/Richards)

My sweet Lady Jane
When I see you again
Your servant am I
And will humbly remain

Just heed this plea my love
On bended knees my love
I pledge myself to Lady Jane

My dear Lady Anne
I've done what I can
I must take my leave
For promised I am
This play is run my love
Your time has come my love
I've pledged my troth to Lady Jane

Oh my sweet Marie
I wait at your ease
The sands have run out
For your lady and me

Wedlock is nigh my love
Her station's right my love
Life is secure with Lady Jane

Lucin wrote (his/her channel is taken down by the YouTube a$$sholes):

« Lady Jane » is a song by the English rock group the Rolling Stones, penned by duo Mick Jagger and Keith Richards with arrangement by Brian Jones. She was initially included on the album Aftermath (opus 4) which was released on 12 April 1966 in the UK and 20 June 1966 in the US. The song takes its source on a novel called ‘Lady Chatterley's Lover’ by English writer David Herbert Lawrence. « Lady Jane » presents also the influences of author Geoffry Chaucer considered the father of English poetry particularly in the vocal delivery and diction of Mick Jagger. The vocal melody reveals by elsewhere a Renaissance style modal. He has an Elizabethan atmosphere in this cantilena with his lyrics and without any percussion on the studio version. The song is valorized by Brian Jones' instrumental incorporation of baroque rock, this multi-instrumentalist musician seeking to improve the musical textures of the Rolling Stones. The special feature of this composition is the use of a dulcimer by Brian Jones but equally the accompaniment on the harpsichord by Jack Nitzsche halfway through the melody. These ones play the instrument in a pure traditional style. Brian Jones is the secret enunciation here, bringing an exotic touch to « Lady Jane », he is the standard for the playfulness of everything that led to the radiant psychedelia of that era. The Rolling Stones went beyond their blues roots to become pop genius artisans who ran neck and neck with the Beatles. After the death of Brian Jones in 1969, she will not be performed in concert before 2012. This song is one of the most beautiful in sixties pop.

Edit 2 for headphones. Written by Sandy Denny, who recorded it as a demo in 1967, it was covered the following year by Judy Collins who released it as the B Side of "Both Sides Now". Denny joined Fairport Convention, and it was recorded for their third album "Unhalfbricking", on which it runs to 5 minutes 13 seconds. In 2007, it was voted by BBC Radio 2 listeners as their favourite folk rock track of all time.

This may be Sandy Denny's greatest song but it is also her epitaph (writing on the tomb stone), because time ran out for her on April 21, 1978 when she died in the Atkinson Morley Hospital, London, aged just 31. She fell down a flight of stairs, was knocked unconscious, and never woke up.

Fairport Convention, a British folk rock band, formed in 1967 by Richard Thompson (guitar, vocals), Simon Nicol (guitar, vocals), Ashley Hutchings (bass guitar), and Shaun Frater (drums, percussion), with Frater replaced by Martin Lamble after their first gig. They started out heavily influenced by American folk rock and singer-songwriter material, with a setlist dominated by Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell songs and a sound that earned them the nickname 'the British Jefferson Airplane'. Vocalists Judy Dyble and Iain Matthews joined them before the recording of their self-titled debut in 1968; afterwards, Dyble was replaced by Sandy Denny, with Matthews leaving during the recording of their third album.

After briefly working with the Strawbs, Denny joined Fairport Convention in 1968, remaining with them until 1969. She formed the short-lived band Fotheringay in 1970, before focusing on a solo career. Between 1971 and 1977, Denny released four solo albums: The North Star Grassman and the Ravens, Sandy, Like an Old Fashioned Waltz and Rendezvous. She also duetted with Robert Plant on "The Battle of Evermore" for Led Zeppelin's album Led Zeppelin IV in 1971.

and I howled at my ma in the driving rain
but it's all right now, in fact it's a gas
but it's all right, I'm Jumpin' Jack Flash
it's a gas gas gas!

yeah yeah, my my!

I was raised by a toothless bearded hag
I was schooled with a strap right across my back

Edit for headphones, February 2022. A song from the 1969 album "Liege & Lief" (2007 deluxe edition).

FAREWELL, FAREWELL
(Nicholas Talbot/Richard Thompson)

farewell farewell to you who would hear
you lonely travelers all
the cold north wind will blow again
the winding road does call

and will you never return to see
your bruised and beaten sons
oh, I would, I would, if welcome I were
for they loathe me, every one

and will you never cut the cloth
or drink the light to be
and can you never swear a year
to any one of we

no I will never cut the cloth
or drink the light to be
but I'll swear a year to one who lies
asleep along side of me

farewell farewell to you who would hear
you lonely travelers all
the cold north wind will blow again
the winding road does call

Edit 1c (r&r circus) for headphones. The original video is blocked by Abkco, therefore I had to use fragments of the video. And even that one got blocked by the ABKCO a$$sholes on one YouTube channel of mine... This is another song from the "Rock And Roll Circus" that needed some of "enhancement". The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus is a film of an 11 December 1968 event organized by The Rolling Stones. The event comprised two concerts on a circus stage and included such acts as The Who, Taj Mahal, Marianne Faithfull, and Jethro Tull. John Lennon and his fiancee Yoko Ono performed as part of a supergroup called The Dirty Mac, along with Eric Clapton, Mitch Mitchell, and Keith Richards. It was most likely the yelling-like-a-lunatic of Yoko Ono along with this "supergroup" that prevented this film to be released for many many years. It took 28 years before they finally did! Boy what a drag! She was so sad!

Edit for headphones. Source of the remaster is the song of the album "Barabajagal"(2005 EMI remaster). In 1969 it charted #1 for three weeks in hurray for Holland, #23 in the UK, #7 in the US (where "Atlantis" was the b-side to "To Susan On The West Coast, Waiting").

At 3.33 is a picture of Donovan with Brian Jones' biological son Julian and Donovan's girlfriend Linda Lawrence. Donovan married Linda and raised Brian's son as his own.

ATLANTIS
(Donovan Leitch)

the continent of Atlantis was an island
which lay before the great flood
in the area we now call the Atlantic Ocean
so great an area of land, that from her western shores
those beautiful sailors journeyed
to the South and the North Americas with ease
in their ships with painted sails
to the east, Africa was a neighbor
across a short strait of sea miles
the great Egyptian age is but a remnant of The Atlantian culture
the antediluvian kings colonized the world
all the gods who play in the mythological dramas
in all legends from all lands were from fair Atlantis
knowing her fate, Atlantis sent out ships to all corners of the Earth
on board were the Twelve
the poet, the physician, the farmer, the scientist
the magician and the other so-called gods of our legends
though gods they were
and as the elders of our time choose to remain blind
let us rejoice and let us sing and dance and ring in the new
hail Atlantis!

way down below the ocean
where I wanna be, she may be
way down below the ocean
where I wanna be, she may be
way down below the ocean
where I wanna be, she may be
way down below the ocean
where I wanna be, she may be
way down below the ocean
where I wanna be, she may be
my antediluvian baby, oh yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
I want to see you some day
my antediluvian baby, oh yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
my antediluvian baby
my antediluvian baby, I love you, girl
I want to see you some day
my antediluvian baby, oh yeah
I want to see you some day, oh
my antediluvian baby
my antediluvian baby, I want to see you
my antediluvian baby, gotta tell me where she gone
I want to see you some day
wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, oh yeah
oh glub glub, down down, yeah
my antediluvian baby

Edit 1 for headphones, for a heavy bass... this time by Keith Richards! Ever noticed Brian Jones has golden lips in this video?
Recorded during the "Beggars Banquet" sessions in 1968, but kept off the album and released as a single on May 24, 1968. 1968. Released on "Through the past, darkly (big hits vol. 2)", September 12, 1969.
Source file of the edit: the 1989 "Singles Collection - The London Years" [abkco-london 844 481-2].

Main guitar riff through up by Brian Jones and Bill Wyman, but they were'nt credited.

Electric guitars: Brian Jones. Mellotron: Brian Jones. Lead vocals: Mick Jagger. Acoustic guitars and bass: Keith Richards. Drums: Charlie Watts. Maracas: Jimmy Miller. Organ: Bill Wyman. Background vocals: Mick Jagger & Keith Richards.

Keith said in his 2010 book Life: With Jumpin' Jack Flash and Street Fighting Man I'd discovered a new sound I could get out of an acoustic guitar. That grinding, dirty sound came out of these crummy little motels where the only thing you had to record with was this new invention called the cassette recorder... Playing an acoustic, you'd overload the Philips cassette player to the point of distortion so that when it played back it was effectively an electric guitar...There are no electric instruments on Street Fighting Man at all... All acoustic guitars. Jumpin' Jack Flash the same. I wish I could still do that, but they don't build machines like that anymore.

Regarding the song's distinctive sound, guitarist Richards has said:
I used a Gibson Hummingbird acoustic tuned to open D, six string. Open D or open E, which is the same thing – same intervals – but it would be slackened down some for D. Then there was a capo on it, to get that really tight sound. And there was another guitar over the top of that, but tuned to Nashville tuning. I learned that from somebody in George Jones' band in San Antonio in 1964. The high-strung guitar was an acoustic, too. Both acoustics were put through a Philips cassette recorder. Just jam the mic right in the guitar and play it back through an extension speaker.
The only person I find playing the original tunings:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-aItbfIs1XU
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-tdFoZKG7MY
It always drove me crazy because all the live versions of this song just don't sound right...and then I found out why...he changed the tuning and played it on electric...

JUMPIN' JACK FLASH
(Jagger/Richards)

Watch it!

I was born in a cross-fire hurricane
And I howled at my ma in the driving rain,
But it's all right now, in fact, it's a gas!
But it's all right. I'm Jumpin' Jack Flash,
It's a Gas! Gas! Gas!

I was raised by a toothless, bearded hag,
I was schooled with a strap right across my back,
But it's all right now, in fact, it's a gas!
But it's all right, I'm Jumpin' Jack Flash,
It's a Gas! Gas! Gas!

I was drowned, I was washed up and left for dead.
I fell down to my feet and I saw they bled.
I frowned at the crumbs of a crust of bread.
Yeah, yeah, yeah
I was crowned with a spike right thru my head.
But it's all right now, in fact, it's a gas!
But it's all right, I'm Jumpin' Jack Flash,
It's a Gas! Gas! Gas!

Jumping Jack Flash, its a gas
Jumping Jack Flash, its a gas
Jumping Jack Flash, its a gas
Jumping Jack Flash, its a gas

edit for headphones, just to enjoy it more intensely, well, supposed to... the song was an early 1969 neil young & crazy horse song, but csn&y decided to release it on their 1970 album "déjà vu". this is an edit from the one of the album "carry on". my wife hates its wailing, I love my wife.

about the town in the first verse Neil Young said: "Well, it's not literally a specific town so much as a feeling. Actually, it's a couple of towns. Omemee, Ontario, is one of them. It's where I first went to school and spent my 'formative' years. Actually I was born in Toronto..."

More so than any other song, "Helpless" touches on Young's earliest childhood memories. Young came down with polio by age six, prompting his parents to spend a year in Florida hoping the warmer weather would speed his cure. Ten years after this came the Young's divorce, from which Neil stayed with his mother while his father kept his brother Bob and later remarried. So, typical for Neil Young, the memories represented here are bittersweet.

HELPLESS
(Neil Young)

there is a town in north Ontario
with dream comfort memory to spare
and in my mind I still need a place to go
all my changes were there

blue, blue windows behind the stars
yellow moon on the rise
big birds flying across the sky
throwing shadows on our eyes

leave us helpless, helpless, helpless

baby can you hear me now
the chains are locked and tied across the door
baby, sing with me somehow

blue, blue windows behind the stars
yellow moon on the rise
big birds flying across the sky
throwing shadows on our eyes

leave us helpless, helpless, helpless
helpless, helpless, helpless
helpless, helpless, helpless
helpless, helpless, helpless
helpless, helpless

Edit 2 for headphones, December 2020. An edit to make the song a bit less "sixties channel separated".
Recorded June 12 and also on July 7 - 12, 1967. The first Bill Wyman song to be released. Besides the original album it was also released on "The Rolling Stones singles collection: The London years", August 1989. In 1967 it was a nr 87 hit in the US, nr 21 in Canada.

Mellotron: Brian Jones. Lead vocals and bass: Bill Wyman. Drums: Charlie Watts. Harpsichord: Nicky Hopkins. Piano: Bill Wyman. Guitar: Keith Richards. 12-string acoustic guitar: Steve Marriott. Organ: Ian Stewart or Brian Jones or Nicky Hopkins. Background vocals: Brian Jones, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Steve Marriott & Ronnie Lane (both of the Small Faces).

The song was recorded on a night when Bill Wyman had shown up at the studio and found that the session had been cancelled. Feeling frustrated that he had potentially wasted time in driving there, engineer Glyn Johns asked him if he had anything that he'd like to record. "I'd been messing with this song. It was a bit... what I thought was kind of spacy, you know... a bit kind of Satanic Majesties-like. And psychedelic in a way."

Lyrically, Wyman stated that "The idea for the song is about this guy who wakes up from a dream and finds himself in another dream."
The song describes events that transpire in a dreamlike state:

We walked across the sand
And the sea and the sky and the castles were blue
I stood and held your hand
And the spray flew high and the feathers floated by
I stood and held your hand

Glyn Johns showed the song to Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and Brian Jones, who all liked it and decided to include it on the record.

The musicians on the song are Bill Wyman on lead vocals, with both Ronnie Lane and Steve Marriott of the Small Faces on guitar and backing vocals, Nicky Hopkins on keyboards, Charlie Watts on drums, and Jagger adding backing vocals.

At the conclusion of the track as heard on the album, Wyman himself can be heard snoring. He was unaware this had been tagged onto his song until he first played the completed album. He learned later that one night when he had fallen asleep in the studio, Jagger and Richards miked him up and recorded him snoring, and stuck it onto his track as a joke. This does not appear on the single.

IN ANOTHER LAND
(William George Perks a.k.a. Bill Wyman)

in another land
where the breeze and the trees and flowers were blue
I stood and held your hand
and the grass grew high and the feathers floated by
I stood and held your hand
and nobody else's hand will ever do
nobody else will do
then I awoke
was this some kind of joke
much to my surprise
I opened my eyes

we walked across the sand and the sea and
the sky and the castles were blue
I stood and held your hand
and the spray flew high and the feathers floated by
I stood and held your hand
and nobody else's hand will ever do
nobody else will do
then I awoke
was this some kind

Edit for headphones. Written in 1962 and recorded by the duo Ian & Sylvia for their 1964 album "Northern Journey" this song is covered by various artists. I like this clean, pristine version by CSP, a #2 hit in the UK, #5 in Holland. Barry Mcguire had a hit with his cover in Italy.

YOU WERE ON MY MIND
(Sylvia Fricker)

well I woke up this morning
you were on my mind
I said you were on my mind

oh, I got troubles, oh, oh
I got worries, oh, oh
I got wounds to bind

so I went to the corner
just to ease my pain
I said just to ease my pain

oh, I got troubles, oh, oh
I got worries, oh, oh
I came home again

but I woke up this morning
you were on my mind
you were on my mind

oh, I got troubles, oh, oh
I got worries, oh, oh
I got wounds to bind

but I've got a feeling
yeah, down in my shoes
I said way down in my shoes

well, I gotta ramble, oh, oh
I gotta move on, oh, oh
I gotta walk away my blues

when I woke up this morning
you were on my mind
I said you were on my mind

well, I got troubles, oh, oh
I got worries, oh, oh
I got wounds to bind, yeah

Organ: Brian Jones. Electric guitars: Brian Jones & Keith Richards. Lead & backing vocals: Mick Jagger. Bass: Bill Wyman. Drums: Charlie Watts. Tambourine: James W. Alexander. **

I'M FREE
(Jagger/Richards)

I'm free to do what I want any old time
I'm free to do what I want any old time
so love me, hold me, love me, hold me
I'm free any old time to get what I want

I'm free to sing my song though it gets out of time
I'm free to sing my song though it gets out of time
so love me, hold me, love me, hold me
and I'm free any old time to get what I want

love me, hold me, love me, hold me

I'm free to choose what I please any old time

* Mick Jagger used the moves he saw James Brown performing

** JAMES W. ALEXANDER (1916-1996)
Mississippi-born Alexander was an all-around session musician (bassist, guitarist, singer, drummer and percussionist) and producer who recorded extensively with 1960s and '70s soul artists, such as Sam Cooke, the Bar-Kays, the Soul Stirrers, Mavis Staples and Isaac Hayes. He contributed percussion on "I'm Free" during the Stones' September 1965 L.A. recordings.

Edit 1b for headphones. A 1966 number one hit in Canada, #2 in Holland, #4 in the US, #5 UK, #5 Australia. The song was released in Holland about the same time that a Dutch band - "The Jets" - released the song. The strange thing that the record industry did was: to pump up the sales figures the selling rates of both singles were COMBINED. Smart a$$es...

Crispian was born Robin Peter Smith in Swanley, England (1939-2010). "The Changin' Times" of Steve Duboff and Artie Kornfeld was the first band that released the song, reaching #87 in the 1965 UK top 100.

When recorded on October 16, 1967, the song was not meant to be released. But after Brian Jones added the mellotron to it, it was added to the album too and became perhaps the best song on the album. Well, we played it on the local jukebox a few thousand times anyway...
Mellotron & piano: Brian Jones. Percussion: Brian Jones & Mick Jagger. Vocals: Mick Jagger. Bass: Bill Wyman. Guitar: Keith Richards. Drums: Charlie Watts.

2000 LIGHT YEARS * FROM HOME
(Jagger/Richards)

sun turnin' 'round with graceful motion
we're setting off with soft explosion
bound for a star with fiery oceans
it's so very lonely, you're a hundred light years from home

freezing red deserts turn to dark
energy here in every part
it's so very lonely, you're six hundred light years from home

it's so very lonely, you're a thousand light years from home
it's so very lonely, you're a thousand light years from home

bell flight fourteen you now can land
see you on Aldebaran, safe on the green desert sand
it's so very lonely, you're two thousand light years from home
it's so very lonely, you're two thousand light years from home

With « processed 'stereo' » I mean: fake stereo.

My edits are for free, I don't earn money with it (it only COSTS me money), so please don't be offended if I play around with sound, it is my hobby, I do not intend to be a wise guy or smart ass, it's just what I like to do...

These edits are best experienced via headphones... if you want advice:

Sennheiser HD 520 II - I have one and it sounds nearly perfect
Sennheiser HD 580 (Precision) - my wife has one and it sounds perfect
Sennheiser HD 595
Sennheiser HD 600
Sennheiser HD 650 or even... a Sennheiser HD 800
less expensive and also nearly perfect: a Shure SRH 940.

BUT I MUST WARN YOU: there are also very bad Sennheiser headphones ! ! ! So don't just trust the brand !

The latest Sennheiser with a good review by my local newspaper's music specialist is the Sennheiser HD 560 S.
