In The Shade

On "Some Girls", which turned out to be an almost 'keyboard-less' album, Ian McLagan ended up on two tracks, playing Wurlitzer piano on smash-hit 'Miss You' and organ on the Temptations cover 'Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me)'. Ian Stewart doesn't appear on the album at all, for the first time since 1968's "Beggars Banquet". But Stu was present during the Pathé Marconi sessions, and most of the tracks he played on appeared on the 2011 "Some Girls" re-release.

Hank Williams' 'You Win Again' is pure country of course, while 'Claudine' (see last post) and the 'Dead Flowers'-like 'Do You Think I Really Care' are two more or less country-and-roll tinged songs. 'So Young', which got an earlier release as a B-side in 1994, contains Stu's trademark boogie woogie piano, while 'Petrol Gang' has a story of its own (see next post).
