Something for the Weekend: The Rolling Stones - As Tears Go By

For no reason other than that I heard it recently. I particularly like this live version by the Stones (the song was, of course, written by Jagger and Richards, as Jagger mentions at the beginning):

    Great version, John and love Keef's 12 string playing. What year is this from? Do you have a link for the rest of the gig?

    1. Yes, the 12-string is excellent. As for the gig, I think it is from 2007, as with this.

    OK, thanks, John. I saw them about 25 years ago and they were great but pretty sloppy. They seem to have got tighter with age and Jagger is singing in tune.
    Still miss Bill Wyman though.
