Pretty Beat Up

After a long break the Rolling Stones returned to the studio to continue work on the 40-odd songs they recorded during their November-December 1982 sessions at Pathé Marconi Studios. This time around (May-August, 1983) the band, along with sound engineer Chris Kimsey, gathered at The Hit Factory, New York City, a new place for the band.

During the New York Undercover sessions the Stones were joined by a lot of musicians, including Black Uhuru's rhythm section Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare, the Sugar Hill horn section CHOPS, and new sax recruit David Sanborn.

All these musicians gathered on the "Undercover" album track 'Pretty Beat Up', with Chuck Leavell and Bill Wyman playing piano, while Ian Stewart took the organ part. Ron Wood wrote the song, with some support from Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.
