Memo From Turner on Side 2 is a genuine outtake that would only resurface some twenty years later in better quality on “The Black Box” on the Yellow Dog label (disc 2 track 15).  2120 South Michigan Avenue is the long version that includes Keith’s guitar solo. Ride On Baby is a mono demo version that is missing additional instrumentation found in the released version. Bye Bye Johnny is the “More Hot Rocks” version. I checked twelve shows from the 1970 European Tour and I’m not able to place this version of Roll Over Beethoven! The “marker” for the song comes just before the instrumental break where Jagger says “Alright, yeah come-on baby”. It’s definitely not Paris, 1970 as some might have you believe.”
