Unreleased for over 50 years: a legal publication of two remastered, unreleased recordings by The Rolling Stones.
These two recordings were made on February 4th, 1964 at Regent Sound Studios in London. The band was joined by singer/songwriter Gene Pitney (who provides vocals), Graham Nash and Allan Clarke (from The Hollies) and record producer Phil Spector. The B side is an instrumental track from the same session.
The full story of these recordings was told by the website Dangerous Minds, which quotes from a Bill Wymanautobiography (Stone Alone: The Story of a Rock ‘n’ Roll Band):
We’d become friendly with Phil Spector and attended a star-studded party in his honour thrown by Decca a week earlier; so he continued the friendship by dropping in our recording. Graham Nash and Allan Clarke of the Holliesalso came and later Gene Pitney arrived direct from the airport, with duty-free cognac. It was his birthday, and his family custom was that everyone had to drink a whole glass. Pitney played piano while Spector and the Hollies played tambourine and maracas and banged coins on empty bottles. We recorded three songs, ‘Little by Little,’ ‘Can I Get a Witness’ and ‘Now I’ve Got a Witness,’ which we invented on the spot. The session then degenerated into silliness, but everybody had a great time cutting ‘Andrew’s Blues’ and ‘Spector and Pitney Came Too’-—both of which were very rude.
