Album: Exile on Main St.
. . .
“Loving Cup” is one of the oldest songs on Exile On Main St. — they played it at the Hyde Park show in 1969 — having first been attempted during the Let It Bleed sessions, and then ignored until they figured out how to make it work in Keith’s basement.
And that’s just as well, because while “Torn and Frayed” is the song that got me into side two of Exile on Main St., I think I love “Loving Cup” even more, and am here to say that it’s easily Mick Jagger’s greatest love song.
