You Can Make It if You Try

England’s Newest Hitmakers

Side 2, Track 5

"You Can Make It If You Try" (Ted Jarrett) – 2:01

A much more convincing display of the Stones early R&B abilities, taking on this obscure (to me, anyway) 8-bar blues. Mick sounds more at home here than he did on "Honest I Do", and although the out-of-time percussion distracted me, the absence of the annoying harp solos which marred many of the other blues numbers on this album make up for that.
