No. 25: ‘Have You Seen Your Mother, Baby’ – Top 100 Rolling Stones Songs
With it's snarling guitar feedback opening the door for, of all things, a trumpet, 'Have You Seen Your Mother, Baby' cooks along like a Swinging London steamroller.
A top five hit in the US, it has 1966 London written all over it. A precursor to the Rolling Stones' late 1966 classic 'Between The Buttons,' 'Have You Seen Your Mother, Baby' showed the band adding new colors to their ever-growing palate.
The single's pic sleeve caused a little controversy as it pictured the band in full on drag. Granted, they looked like old women, but hey... controversy sells! This may be the moment where it all coalesced as the sounds and styles of the '60s would soon change again.
