Preparing For Don

On July 17, 1973, in a London studio, the Rolling Stones recorded some instrumental backing tracks to be used for the shooting of promo-films. The shootings, directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg, were premiered in the "Don Kirshner's Rock Concert" TV show. Mick Jagger added live vocals to three songs from the upcoming studio album "Goat's Head Soup": 'Angie', 'Dancing With Mr. D.', and 'Silver Train'. Just like on the album track, Ian Stewart plays piano on 'Silver Train', but he is not seen in the video. Of course not!

Don Kirshner's Rock Concert was an American music variety show that ran during the 1970s and early 1980s, created and produced by Don Kirshner and syndicated to television stations. It premiered on September 29, 1973, with the taped performance by the Stones. It happened to be the band's first appearance on American TV in more than four years.
