Audio files of The Rolling Stones making "Their Satanic Majesties Request"

I'm really enjoying a new bootleg blog about 1960s music called "Lets Make It." My favorite things here so far are the downloadable "Satanic Sessions" — bootleg audio files of The Rolling Stones inside the studio making their delightfully bizarre 1966 psychedelic album, "Their Satanic Majesties Request." There's also quite a bit about The Beach Boys, too.

Jagger: Flowers In Your Hair

What ?

Jagger: What?

Watts: Third time

Jagger: Flowers in Hair

Flowers in Your Hair right

Jagger: A Nicky…

Nicky Hopkins: Yeah?

Engineer: Flowers in Your Bonnet take one

Jagger: Like, like I said…la la la la la la da, but you're on your own, you know

Nicky Hopkins: Yeah. I will…

Keith, just get the levels

Play it then

Guitar is switched from a left channel mix to center

Hopkins: OK…

1. She's A Rainbow: Takes 1-2 (6:57) – The working title of She's A Rainbow is Flowers In Your Hair! Hopkins goes on to play the loveliest melodic piano lines imaginable. The piano in the left channel is running all through the song with variations not heard on the released version of the track. The trumpet like sound in the right channel is a keyboard and most likely the Mellotron with yet another sound setting selected.
