The Rolling Stones Complete
Recording Sessions 1962 - 2012


Rolling Stones

(Berry) 3.32

Producer: Andrew Oldham.
Engineer: Ron Malo.
Bootleg only.

Another Chuck Berry song performed at a sedate, relaxed pace, with two distinctive lead guitars. Charlie Watts’ drum sound provides a metronome for the song as he perfectly controls the rest of the band. Mick Jagger’s vocals are an intrinsic part of the three-and-a-half minute track as he guides the musicians through to the break of dawn.
On the first day of recording, Chuck himself came by the studio, as did Buddy Guy and Willie Dixon, who was proffering some of his songs. Reelin’ And A Rockin’ was not released and, apparently, some Chess tracks were recorded but Andrew Oldham managed to lose them - or perhaps they were saved for his pension trust fund!

The session was completed around midnight before they headed off for a gig in Minneapolis. There were four tracks recorded on the first day and a further 11 on the second day, this information being recorded in Bill Wyman’s diaries and his book Rolling With The Stones.
