The Rolling Stones Song of the Day is- I Got The Blues which was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards and is the second song on side 2 of Sticky Fingers. Listening to this- the opening instrumental part sounds right off of an Otis Redding album like “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long- a song that The Stones covered back in 1965. I’ve Got The Blues is a slow paced- and would have fit as a Stax Records release. Billy Preston is playing the organ on this. Easily the most obscure song on the Sticky Fingers album. I like this one- it’s great to hear a Rolling Stones song that you know the only time you will hear it is when you listen to the album. I’ve never heard this one the radio.

  1. The horns are exceptional on here. Why did they bother to have that short organ bit in there. Organ should have been throughout or not at all. Very good song, I’m sure this is the first time hearing it.
