Mick Jagger – Wandering Spirit

Beam Me Up Scotty’s Series: Part 1/25 (CD)

Jagger really knocks it out of the park, with this one. Recorded at the same time as Keef’s Main Offender, after Steel Wheels, Mick pulls all of his tricks (southern drawl, bluesy come-ons, hilarious falsettos) to great effect, and the music is perfect, rock solid.

Lenny Kravitz helps out on Bill Withers’ Use Me, and Flea plays bass on three tracks. Jim Keltner, Brendan O’Brien, Billy Preston and Benmont Tench are here too. Totally worth it, if you see it.

    I haven’t heard this one in such a long time. I actually forgot all about it (and the cast!), but I guess that’s easy to do… especially when Keef’s album was such a winner.

      Awesome to be there for this! It really is a great one. Not a dud track anywhere on it! It’s been a long time since I played Primitive Cool, but I don’t remember it being that bad. Looks like it’s time to add it back into the mix…
