When Metamorphosis came out in 1975, it was the first time that the Rolling Stones had deigned to give us an outtakes album and while it leaned too hard on early demos that were cut while Andrew Loog Oldham was shopping Jagger/Richards songs to other bands — many of which featured only Mick and session people — there is a small slice of Beggars Banquet / Let it Bleed outtakes near the end.
And while none of those outtakes are “Blood Red Wine,” — an even cleaner version of which just showed up on that massive three-disc bootleg that recently appeared, Fully Finished Studio Outtakes — there are some decent songs: the spooky “Family,” the rockin’ “I’m Goin’ Down,” and their cover of Stevie Wonder’s “I Don’t Know Why,” which legend has it was being mixed when they found out Brian Jones had died.
