As if I needed to be reminded, Jagger has reggae cred. Walking down the street today I glanced into a shop window only to see Sir Mick's giant-ass grin staring back at me. He's sandwiched between Bob Marley and Peter Tosh and whatever they were smoking seems to have made them pretty happy.
Mick famously dueted with Tosh on a cover of the Temptations' "(You Gotta Walk) Don't Look Back" from Tosh's 1978 Bush Doctor record. Released by Rolling Stones Records, the album jacket apparently boasted a scratch and sniff ganja sticker. These are the types of value-adds missing from the MP3 format.
Despite Jagger's vamping at the end, this is pretty great. If only SuperHeavy possessed an ounce of this cut's playfulness.
Tangentially: Tosh would go on to appear in the Stones' 1981 "Waiting on a Friend" video, notable for Jagger delivering the line "I'm just standing in a doorway" while standing in a doorway. And a great Sonny Rollins sax solo.
