This deep-blue cover of Solomon Burke's 1962 signature tune was recorded at the same May '65 RCA Studios sessions in Los Angeles that produced "Satisfaction." Per legend, that was also where the Stones were first introduced to cocaine. Maybe that comes through in Jagger's high-strung shouts, although the Stones' take on the R&B burner is even slower than Burke's.
