Musical palate cleanser, Mick and David edition

For your listening pleasure, here’s an early take of “It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll”, featuring Bowie and Ron Wood on backup vocals:

Wikipedia has the deets:

Recorded in late 1973 and completed in the spring of 1974,[1] “It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll (But I Like It)” is credited to the Rolling Stones songwriting team Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, although future Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood collaborated with Jagger on it.[2] The song was originally recorded one night in a studio at Wood’s house, “The Wick” in Richmond, London.[3] David Bowie was backing singer to Jagger’s lead, and Willie Weeks played bass with Kenney Jones on drums. The song on the album is similar to that original recording, with the Stones keeping the original rhythm track.

Quite the motley crew there…
