Preparing For Don (2)

On June 1 1974, at LWT Studios, London, 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 (October 19, 1974). Mick Jagger added live vocals to three songs from the upcoming studio album "It's Only Rock 'n' Roll": 'Till The Next Goodbye', 'Ain't Too Proud To Beg', and the album's title track.

The recording of 'It's Only Rock 'n' Roll (But I Like It)' also contains a new lead guitar part and different back-up vocals. Just like on the album track, Ian Stewart plays piano, but once again he is not seen in the video. Fortunately maybe, this time around, because the video shooting turned out to be pretty hilarious, as can be seen below. Have a look at Charlie Watts, exiting stage right, not amused at all!
