I Like This Song: The Edward, “It Hurts Me Too”

This is an oddball album that came out in 1972, featuring a “band” made up of Nicky Hopkins, Ry Cooder, Bill Wyman, Charlie Watts and Mick Jagger. The story apparently, is that during the Rolling Stones’ Let It Bleed sessions, their producer Jimmy Miller, brought in Cooder to play slide guitar. This made Keith mad and he took off for a few days, during which the boys he left behind recorded these six sides.

One of them, Boudoir Stomp, is Midnight Rambler with different words. This one is a lovely cover of the classic Elmore James song. Great stuff.

For some reason, when I was in high school, I owned this but not Let It Bleed.

Nicky Hopkins drew the cover cartoon.
