Watch ‘Miss You’ From the Rolling Stones’ ‘Totally Stripped': Exclusive Premiere
On June 3, the Rolling Stones will release Totally Stripped, an expanded take on their 1995 mostly acoustic live album Stripped. Ultimate Classic Rock is pleased to present the exclusive premiere of one of the new songs, a performance of "Miss You," which you can watch above.
Culled from shows in small clubs in London, Paris and Amsterdam, Totally Stripped offers a documentary and completely re-envisions the CD, which was recorded after their lengthy tour in support of Voodoo Lounge had ended. Of the 14 songs, nine have never been released. Four tracks – "Not Fade Away," "Dead Flowers," "Shine a Light" and their cover of Bob Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone" – are taken from different dates than on Stripped. Only one, the Amsterdam performance of "Street Fighting Man," appeared on the original. In addition, there is a deluxe edition that adds DVDs or Blu-rays of all three concerts in their entirety, and a 60-page book.
Mick Jagger said upon Stripped's release that the concept was to “take the best element from [MTV] Unplugged, the intimate thing of it, without actually doing it completely unplugged." Keith Richards added, “There’s something about playing these small venues, the immediacy of it. Also we can keep God out the band, because on big gigs he sometimes turns up as rain or wind."
"Miss You" first came out on 1978's Some Girls. Despite a controversy about its disco beat, the song reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The version above was taken from the July 3, 1995 show at L'Olympia in Paris.
