|"You Got the Silver"|
|Song by the Rolling Stones|
|from the album Let It Bleed|
|Released||5 December 1969|
|Recorded||18 February 1969|
Recorded on 18 February 1969, "You Got the Silver" is the first Stones song to feature guitarist Keith Richards on solo lead vocal throughout (Richards previously sang separate lead vocals on parts of "Something Happened to Me Yesterday" from Between the Buttons and "Salt of the Earth" from Beggars Banquet). One of Richards' own compositions, "You Got the Silver" is said to have been written about his then-girlfriend Marcella Ramos.
Hey babe, you got my soul, You got the silver, you got the gold
A flash of love has made me blind, I don't care, no, that's no big surprise
"You Got the Silver" was the last Stones recording with Brian Jones to be released. He plays autoharp, one of his two appearances on the album. The band recorded a version of the song with Jagger on lead, but opted to use Richards' version for the official release. The Jagger version has since become a well-known bootleg recording. Jones' autoharp contribution can only be heard clearly on the alternate mix with Jagger on vocals and it is played only during the section of the verses where the drums join in. Wyman's bass playing also stands out more in the unreleased alternate mix. The official/album mix has the autoharp mixed very low though it can be heard in the right-hand channel between 1:04 and 1:25. The bootleg mix with Jagger on vocals places Jones's autoharp much prominently in the mix. Nicky Hopkins' overdubbed organ and piano to the track and a backwards echo effect is applied to Richards' slide guitar track.
The song was played live for the first time during the No Security Tour in 1999. It was brought out again by Richards for the 2005-2007 A Bigger Bang Tour. A November 1, 2006 live performance captured on the 2008 concert film Shine a Light is featured on the album of the same name. The song was also played during the Rolling Stones' 50 and Counting tour, and a July 2013 performance appears on Hyde Park Live, featuring Ronnie Wood playing slide guitar. During live performances, the song is highly notable for being sung by Richards without playing guitar or any other instrument.
