Susie Q

12 x 5
Side 2, Track 6
"Susie Q" (Eleanor Broadwater/Stan Lewis/Dale Hawkins) – 1:50

This is the old swamp rockabilly number
finally, something the Stones can really sink their teeth into. Mick's slurring vocal, Charlie Watts' neo-"What'd I Say" beat, Keith's biting solothis might even be the definitive version: more rocking than the Dale Hawkins' original, less sprawling that CCR's psychedelic extravaganza.
