No. 50: ‘You Got the Silver’ – Top 100 Rolling Stones Songs

Rolling Stones
London

Released in Dec. 1969, ‘You Got the Silver’ became the first Rolling Stones track to solely feature Keith Richards on vocals. Richards penned the song about his then-girlfriend Anita Pallenberg.

The group recorded a version with Mick Jagger on vocals, but opted to keep Keith as the frontman on the song that was released. The Mick version has become a highly sought-after bootleg.

The track, which appeared on the ‘Let It Bleed’ album, is also notable for being one of Brian Jones‘ final appearances with the group, as he contributed autoharp on this number.
