Talkin' about You

December's Children (And Everybody's)
Side 1, Track 2
"Talkin' About You" (Chuck Berry) – 2:31

The late-period Chuck Berry tune (1961), with the tempo slowed a lot. Keith appears to be the only guitar on the track – I think that's Brian Jones on the organ. Given their facility with other Chuck Berry numbers, "Talkin' About You" is curiously limp, especially the Keith's solo, which seems to end two bars too early. Even more odd is the fact that Keith avoids Berry-style double stops on a Chuck Berry song. Weird.
