Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings: Melody

This is one of the songs the Rhythm Kings played last night. It appears on the Rollings Stones album Black and Blue, where it is credited to Billy Preston, Jagger and Richards.

But George Fame was quite cutting about those last two getting a credit when he introduced the song, which makes you wonder how amicable Bill Wyman's departure from the Stones was.

This version of the band includes both Peter Frampton and Gary Brooker, who were not in Market Harborough yesterday, but it does show how good Bill Wyman's contacts in the business are.
