Have You Seen Your Mother, Baby, Standing in the Shadow?

Track 2
"Have You Seen Your Mother, Baby, Standing in the Shadow?" – 2:34

(I forgot to do Flowers! 3 of the songs are repeats from Between the Buttons, so I won't do those.)

There is a good song lurking in here somewhere, but this mix is total shit. The horns sound like shit, the bottom end is muddy, you can't hear the guitars clearly. The song itself is an archetypical garage rock shaggy dog story, with a nice double-time beat. I've read that Keith was not impressed by the final product, which buried the rhythm section.

Here's another mix, with results just as poor:

This is probably more like what it was meant to sound like. It's Mick performing the song in 1993 on his Wandering Spirit solo tour.
