The Rolling Stones - All About You (Live 1997)
The first ever live version of this song originally recorded back in 1979 for the Emotional Rescue LP. It was his "goodbye" missive to his then partner Anita Pallenberg as they teetered on the brink of a permanent split after Keith got "clean" and she didn't.
It's a little strange to see him sing this song almost 20 years removed from those times but the lyrics are so strong and pointed that it doesn't really matter. It's more of a jazz song than a typical Stones number - it just sort of floats and bends a little but those words sting even today.
One of Keith's best...
