Street Fighting Man – (Original Single Mono Version)
Beggars Banquet is generally acknowledged as the moment when the Rolling Stones came of age. After three albums that found Mick Jagger , Keith Richards and group indulging in every kind of studio trickery, this masterpiece found the Stones returning to the band dynamic. But after all this time, are there still new things to be learned from this minute blast of classic Rolling Stones magic? As consistently great as Beggars Banquet no doubt is, the album didn’t include the huge hit single “Jumping Jack Flash,” recorded during an inspired two weeks that also produced “Street Fighting Man,” “Jigsaw Puzzle” and “Parachute Woman. The gambit paid off handsomely when “Jumping Jack Flash” topped the charts in the U. But a signature line had to be updated when Robert Kennedy was killed after “Sympathy” had been written. Jagger changed the lyric to “the Kennedys. In his endlessly fascinating autobiography Life, Richards reveals that a chance discovery of open five-string tuning “really reinvigorated me,” beginning with the sessions for Beggars Banquet : “It transformed my life,” he writes.

Discussion in ‘ Music Corner ‘ started by spotlightkid , Feb 24, Log in or Sign up. Steve Hoffman Music Forums. Location: oakland park,florida. Any SH Forum member know the story of the rarest picture sleeve in the world-How many are known to exist and why was this sleeve never released in the USA or was it? Andrew , Feb 24, Location: Long Island, NY. Up until the cover photo was described – I couldn’t picture it.
NOW I remember – it had a helmeted officer roughing up a protestor. Yes – it was available in the U. It could be easily distinguished by the omission of the word “NO” at the end of every chorus. Is this the mono mix that is on the single box or those mono Beggars boots? I had heard somewhere that that was an early mono mix and was withdrawn. If that true, now I’m doubly depressed – a rare sleeve and a rare mix lost to time

This 45 was released on August 31, , just three days after the riots and protests at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago. This is most likely the reason that the sleeve was recalled and withdrawn from sale. It is unknown how many of these sleeves were printed, but almost all were destroyed before the 45 was shipped to distributors. A few copies escaped the shredder and those were kept by London Records employees. It is unlikely that any sleeves ever made it into retail stores.
We estimate that there are only around a dozen known surviving examples. This is a nice example with some general light wear and creasing and a tiny tear at the bottom right corner of the “No Expectations” side, which has been repaired, as well as another tiny one at the top.

The Rolling Stones have always had a reputation in the United States as anarchic hell-raisers that were out to cause chaos everywhere they went. This meant that the meaning behind their music was dissected to the ninth degree, unlike their peers. The Stones had become a phenomenon on both sides of the Atlantic by the late sixties, thanks in no small part to the mayhem that would ensue every time that they stepped foot on stage. It was this, coupled with their more than liberal attitudes, that their songs embodied and, in turn, provoked such an intense feeling of freedom.
Asking its listeners to take stock of the establishment and, in no uncertain times, riot about it, Jagger and co.

Called the band’s “most political song,” Rolling Stone ranked the song number on its list of the Greatest Songs of All Time. The single’s B-side was album-mate “No Expectations”. For reasons unknown, the single did not see a release in the United Kingdom until backed with “Surprise, Surprise”, previously unreleased in the UK. The US single’s version of the song, released in mono with an additional vocal overdub on the choruses, is different from the Beggars Banquet album’s stereo version. Ev’rywhere I hear the sound of marching, charging feet, boy Cause summer’s here and the time is right for fighting in The street, boy But what can a poor boy do Except to sing for a rock ‘n’ roll band Cause in sleepy London town There’s just no place for a street fighting man No.
Think the time is right for a palace revolution But where I live the game to play is compromise solution Well, then what can a poor boy do Except to sing for a rock ‘n’ roll band Cause in sleepy London town There’s no place for a street fighting man No. Take me to the station And put me on a train I’ve got no expectations To pass through here again Once I was a rich man Now I am so poor. But never in my sweet short life Have I felt like this before You heart is like a diamond You throw your pearls at swine And as I watch you leaving me You pack my peace of mind.

What other plants i. I do, however, prefer this mix as on the Columbia pressings which, B. My pressing has the CAT. Can we assume all pressings with this particular number have this version, or do other CAT. My copy with these typefaces was pressed in Santa Maria, CA. I’ve noticed the swirl used by Shelley differed from all other plants that pressed for London. The music sounds like a different mix but the vocals are a completely different take!
The whole thing seems to have been slightly edited but I compared the run-time with a YT video of the “normal” version and they are both 3: Great way to start a Sunday! This particular pressing contains a very alternate mono mix of “Street Fighting Man”, the lead vocals are different and somewhat buried, at one point instead of yelling “Get-down” before the verse, Mick alone yells “Get-Up”!

Archers of Loaf cover The Rolling Stones’ “Street Fighting Man” for Record Store Day
Each single is an exact reproduction of a significant hit record from a different country with original art matching how the single looked in that specific nation at the time of release. Instead, it features a black and white photo of riot police at a protest, one officer with his foot on a fallen man, and another photo of riot police restraining a man. Released the same month as the Democratic National Convention, where police brutalized protestors, the art was immediately withdrawn, thereby making it one of the most valuable picture sleeve singles in existence by any artist.
– “STREET FIGHTING MAN,” Single, The Rolling Stones,
Add Genre. Add Styles. Add Moods. Add Themes. Other than, possibly, “Sympathy for the Devil,” “Street Fighting Man” was the best song on the Rolling Stones’ album, Beggars Banquet, and a classic single, although exposure problems kept it on the fringes of the Top Lyrical content aside, it’s a great track, gripping the listener immediately with its sudden, springy guitar chords and thundering, offbeat drums.
That unsettling, urgent guitar rhythm is the mainstay of the verses. Mick Jagger’s typically half-buried lyrics seem at casual listening like a call to revolution: summer’s here and the time is right for fighting in the streets. That was a particularly trenchant message in , when there actually was a lot of fighting in the streets: in American race riots, at the Chicago Democratic convention, and as students and workers went on strike in Paris. Perhaps they were saying they wished they could be on the front lines, but were not in the right place at the right time; perhaps they were saying, as John Lennon did in the Beatles’ “Revolution,” that they didn’t want to be involved in violent confrontation.
