Interesting. I wonder what the bill for booze and drugs came to?
Abkco got off cheap.
Wild Horses is one of my favorite songs.
December 1969. Using ordinary inflation adjustments, blah, blah, blah, $1,000 would be about $6,700, in “today’s dollars”.
The musicians would still get $100.
Hmm, what's the price for one 1" reel of Ampex tape today? about $250?
Pretty good return on investment
Brown Sugar was recorded during the same sessions:
Me too. I play it on an acoustic guitar that cost about twice what that studio time did. And sing it with a voice that cost nothing and is worth far far less than that...
I thought wild horses were free if you could catch them....
They made it back.
I think I've played and sung this song more than the Stones.( aging makes this happen!)
I think I do it at every gig- folks LOVE it!
( plus it is actually a long song which is good- I'm always looking to fill time in my sets, as some songs are really short/quick)
The lyric really does it for me. I hear a couple who has worked through a LOT of issues, many of their own doing yet deciding to stay together no matter what.
Is that what you get?
Prefer the Sundays version
I think so but maybe the plan is to get along better in the afterlife
let's do some living after we die
But honestly I'm attracted to the music and The Melody of the song it's like a Purrfect mix between R&B and Country
Sorry for voice activation
prefer the croaky/warbly Gram Parsons version.
I love gram/burrito Bros (even the first record w/out him) and - Wasn’t there always some question about authorship of WH ?
Regardless. That dude made some great music and never had to work a day in his life. He and Bloomfield.
Kudos to both of them .
man my mind is random this morning !
And lastly, never has someone been so well named…
I agree on your take regarding the afterlife. I hadn't really considered that aspect. But "I have my freedom but I don't have much time..." tells me that the singer is all in from this point on.
Thought this was going to be a thread about the environmental cost of allowing wild horses to roam the American west...
I remember something about this, too. I understand GP is on the original singing backing vocals, and I love his version with FBB. Maybe one of those heroin sessions with Keith and Gram resulted in a bit of casual strumming and tossing out lyrical ideas. Heck, maybe it's about their relationship?
