That's a really nice version.

Are you suggesting (conspiracy) that it wasn't written by Jagger/Richards? How would that be explained?

My mate Halo (the other one) is always trying to get me to listen to Gram Parsons. Haven't heard enough to be knowledgeable though.

Well, Gram was very matey indeed with Keith (apparently Anita Pallenberg didn't much care for Gram, but that's another matter). They hung out together, did a load of drink and drugs and all the usual rock star bit. The song itself is reckoned to have been written for Gram by Jagger and Richards; both he and the Stones recorded it. However, there are those who were around at the time, and particularly those closer to Gram, who reckon that the writing credit should either include him or just be Parsons. I guess that if the song was published by Jagger and Richards' publisher, it would have been attributed to them and copyrighted as such. Gram would quite likely have been way t ofar off his face to notice.

Your mate, the other Halo, is clearly a man of great taste and discernment.

He really is.

He's 10+ year's older than me, so my musical tastes / appreciation have been strtetched further back in time than they otherwise would be.

I've got a lot to thank him for.

That was really nice, Lou - despite a couple of guitar glitches.

Glitches? Despite a couple of guitar glitches?!

David Rawling pouring his heart and soul into his guitar solo, playing with verve and emotion, in a live gig set up, and you hear glitches?

Sir, I am disappointed. I can only assume you have been spoilt by the Pro Tools perfection era. It's the lack of perfection that makes it more perfect.

My favourite of many covers of Van Morrison's 'Into The Mystic'.


Feel free to point out glitches Bletch.

That's what makes it live Lou.

As you say, it's that upturned nose that shouldn't be beautiful, but somehow is.

It's that charming flush of the cheeks against unwanted red hair.

It's that beauty spot that draws unwanted attention to the owner, but ensures that their personality is given chance to be 'heard'.

As I said, it was really nice.

 Some excellent suggestions on this thread. I like this one meself. Not often someone can cover the excellent Stevie Wonder, but this is top drawer - IMHO of course.
