TRACKS WITH THE STONES - Byline: Fred Shuster Daily News Music
1. ``Jumpin' Jack Flash'': Bootlegged from the ``Gimme Shelter'' 1969 Altamont concert film, this alternate version features a fantastic lead guitar break from Taylor. It's the 1969 version of the Stones without horns and sidemen.
2. ``Roll Over Beethoven'': From the 1970 European tour, this Chuck Berry favorite was last covered by the band in '65 and hasn't been picked up since this trek.
3. ``Stray Cat Blues'': From the 1971 farewell to Britain tour, before the band moved to France for tax reason, this was recorded at Leeds University with lots of inventive lead work from Taylor.
4. ``Love in Vain'': An incredible version of this Delta blues classic taped during the 1972 tour, with Taylor's fluid, bluesy guitar at its very best.
5. ``You Can't Always Get What You Want'': Taped in Europe in 1973, a great 12-minute performance of a great Stones song with a memorable sax solo by Bobby Keys.
6. ``Wild Horses'': A song never played during the Taylor years, this marks the start of the Ron Wood era of the Stones. Taped in 1975 by an audience member in Baton Rouge, La., tour keyboardist Billy Preston's chimes ring in the background during a unique version of this Stones country classic.
7. ``Brown Sugar'': Bootlegged from a 1978 radio broadcast, this performance features an energetic audience sing-along on the chorus.
8. ``Paint It Black'': With backup singers, horn section and extra musicians, this 1989 track reveals an energized Stones back on the road.
9. ``Gimme Shelter'': A fantastic, extended version from 1995, taped in Europe for TV broadcast.
10. ``Let It Bleed'': Taped on the secondary smaller stage at a Chicago venue in 1997, this is a solid country rave-up.
