The Rolling Stones - "Plundered My Soul"

To coincide with Britain's Record Store Day this past Saturday, the Rolling Stones' famed hype machine has started to go into overdrive. With the deluxe version of the band's venerated Exile On Main St. set to be released on 18 May (complete with ten never released tracks and a DVD of the infamous Cocksucker Blues), we've been sneaked "Plundered My Soul," featuring a fiery Mick Jagger vocal and some tasty blues guitar from Mick Taylor. Apparently recorded during the 1972 Exile sessions, "Plundered" was passed over for inclusion on the double-LP, as well as a B-side or candidate on other albums. [We will pass on discussing how much overdubbing or rerecording may have been involved with the final result; both Jagger and producer Don Was have hinted there may have been some of both.]
