Lost Jagger and Lennon track to finally get released

A lost 1973 recording by Mick Jagger and John Lennon is finally to see release on the Rolling Stone’s first solo best of album.

“Too Many Cooks (Spoil The Soup)” was produced by Lennon in 1973 in Los Angeles and features a superstar group of musicians alongside Jagger.

The track features guitarists Danny Kortchmar and Jesse Ed Davis, keyboardist and Dylan cohort Al Kooper, ex-Cream bassist Jack Bruce and drummer Jim Keltner, with Harry Nilsson on backing vocals.

“The Very Best Of Mick Jagger” also features tracks including Jagger’s 1970 version of “Memo From Turner” featuring Ry Cooder, taken from the film “Performance”, which the Stones’ singer starred in.

Alongside tracks from Jagger’s four solo albums, “She’s The Boss” (1985), “Primitive Cool” (1987), “Wandering Spirit” (1993) and “Goddess In The Doorway” (2001), the album also includes guest appearances from David Bowie and Bono and a track written with Lenny Kravitz.

The compilation is released on October 2.
