Album: Let It Bleed
. . .
Here’s a little trivia for you: Let it Bleed was the first time the Rolling Stones named an album after one of the songs on that album, something all of their major British Invasion peers had already done, and a thing they only ever did three times afterwards (and not at all in the last 40 years), so the assumption at the Certain Songs Home Office is that “Let it Bleed” must have been truly special, while others thought that they were stealing from The Beatles, whose Let It Be album had already been recorded, though it’s possible they’d heard the song “Let it Be” and decided to top it.
Of course, neither is probably the truth: they probably just like “Let it Bleed” as a title for the darkest batch of songs they’d yet recorded, and of course, the then-abandoned Beatles project was originally called “Get Back,” anyways.
