An outtake from the Stones’ 1978 masterpiece “Some Girls” that should have definitely been included in the original mix of songs, but now has thanks to the Deluxe Edition double CD that was recently released. While this cover of the Freddy Cannon classic is a damn nice discovery, the version by the Flamin’ Groovies from the early 1970s is even better:
Wow! Just discovered this on an awesome Norton Records Flamin’ Groovies compilation called “Slow Death.” All of the songs on “Slow Death” were recorded between 1971-1973 and this is an earlier, slower, janglier, and spectacularly cool alternate take on the Groovies signature song. Don’t know if I like it more than the best-known version recorded with Dave Edmunds in 1976, but it’s still pretty f–king cool.
Produced by Dave Edmunds, the Groovies’ best known-song. It sounds like an almost-perfect Stones-Byrds hybrid, which is an awesome concept in any musical idiom.
