Notes:
1."But with 'Exile," 'cause its mostly blues-based stuff. "Stop Breaking Down" is 
probably my favourite track.  I remember getting Mick to play harmonica on that.  
It did not seem like it was finished.  My brother (Glyn) had recorded earlier.  I 
said, 'We've got to use this' because Mick Taylor plays some gorgeous lines and 
I’m very sure that it’s Mick Jagger playing the rhythm guitar as well. That's why 
it’s a little choppier."
