Rolling Stones Friday: Sway

Mick Taylor, in approx. 1971
We're going back to 1971 and Sticky Fingers to pull up an underrated favorite of mine, "Sway".

While the song is credited to Jagger-Richards like all Stones originals, Keith was MIA for this one and didn't play on it. Mick Taylor has long contended he wrote the music and Jagger the lyrics.  Taylor's slide guitar in the middle and then his solo at the finish define the song, just super tasty.

The Stones did not perform the song live with Taylor until just last year in 2013:
