Released six months after the death of founding member Brian Jones, Let It Bleed saw The Rolling Stones evolve musically and set the foundation for their next four albums with replacement guitarist Mick Taylor. He only features on two of the songs on Let It Bleed but their sound over the next six years would change drastically compared to what came before and it all started with this legendary album.
1969 saw the release of one of the most underrated blues/rock albums of all time, the self-titled debut from The Allman Brothers Band. It would take the release of their 1971 live album At Fillmore East for the band to get the recognition they deserved but their debut effort contains some fantastic music.
Released as a single in 1969, the first to feature new guitarist Mick Taylor, Honky Tonk Women showed the world that the Stones had evolved since 1968’s Beggar’s Banquet. The song is probably most well known for featuring that incredible opening guitar riff but the vocals and the lyrics are themselves fantastic. What we have in this article are the isolated vocals from the entire song. Take a listen.
1969 saw the formation of one of rocks most underrated and under-appreciated supergroups in the form of Blind Faith. Formed by Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood initially, bassist Ric Grech and drummer Ginger Baker would join a little later and the outcome of this musical melding of minds was their self titled album, Blind Faith, released in August 1969.
Released in 1971 on John Lennon’s second solo album, Imagine, Gimme Some Truth is a song that Lennon wrote while he was still in The Beatles and there are a number of demo recordings of the song from the Get Back sessions in 1969. Lennon returned to the song a few years later, and what we have in this article is the isolated vocal track from the song.
Originally rehearsed during the Get Back sessions, The Beatles properly started recording the song during the Abbey Road album sessions on the 20th April 1969. Paul’s vocals are one of the most memorable things about the song but Ringo’s drums are absolutely exceptional, and below is the isolated drums in all their glory.
