"Let it Bleed" and the end, arguably, of an era

Daily Wire Article on the Late Sixty’s, The Stones and “Let it Bleed”

I thought this was a good read.

Thanks @scotte1, good read. I’d also recommend the documentary 20 Feet From Stardom about back up singers. There’s a great part where Merry Clayton recounts the recording of Gimme Shelter.

You’re welcome.

I read somewhere, or watched something, about Merry Clayton being a last minute, spur of the moment kind of thing. IIRC, someone in the studio one night during recording thought of her and she was dragged out of bed in the middle of the night over to the studio to sit/sing in – and the rest is history, as they say.

Good stuff…
