Track-talk: Come On/I Want To Be Loved

I thought we could do a monthly walkthrough of the Stones' songs, starting with the very first. Basically, any facts about the songs the boys have said over the years; along with your opinion of said track. So, we start with the very first song released as a single by The Rolling Stones: Come On. The song, a Buddy Holly cover, was recorded on May 10th 1963 and released on June 7th 1963, this marking the beginning of the Stones some 55 years ago. Produced by manager Andrew Loog Oldham, the song was apparently rushed in its recording (at least according to a handwritten note by Brian Jones) and the band was not satisfied with the final product as they feel it didn't capture their capabilities well.

The B-Side, I Want To Be Loved, was a Willie Dixon cover.

Lineup for both songs:
Mick Jagger - Vocals
Keith Richard - Guitars
Brian Jones - Harmonica
Bill Wyman - Bass Guitar
Charlie Watts - Drums

As far as I know "Come on" is a Chuck Berry cover, well plagiarism in rock and blues exists before Led Zeppelin LOL, so probably it is by Buddy Holly

Not just harmonica, backing vocals on Come On are by Brian


This is key in Stones history, a band starting without any manager or any $$ support getting their first gig in the mecca of blues in London and their first single in Decca while many groups with managers and money were trying to do the same and now are all forgotten
