This is very religious - it was HE Smiled Sweetly but someone changed it. A quasi-religious up-tempo shuffler. That's Jack Nitzssche on piano.
I had forgotten how hauntingly nice that is. We did it in two takes and I played bass, organ, guitar, and piano on it. Charlie played drums and Mick sang it. It was just the three of us. And suddenly that came back to me (while we've been rehearsing it) and I saw us in the studio.
