The Rolling Stones Song of the Day is I Can’t Be Satisfied. I Can’t Be Satisfied was written and first performed in 1948 by the great bluesman McKinley Morganfield aka Muddy Waters. The Rolling Stones paid homage to one of their heroes by recording the song at Chess Studio in Chicago where Muddy made so many of his great records. When Mick met Keith back in 1961 at a train station platform Mick was carrying two albums a Chuck Berry album and The Best of Muddy Waters.
I Can’t Be Satisfied was on The Rolling Stones No.2 album in the UK. It wasn’t released in the United States until 1972 on the compilation More Hot Rocks. The Stones version certainly doesn’t top Muddy’s original but they do an excellent job all around on it- my favorite thing about The Stones recording is Brian Jones work on the slide guitar.
