Came across some interesting info about this first single by the Stones, recorded May 10, 1963 with Roger Savage as the engineer and Andrew Oldham producing. Mick described it the session as “a bunch of bloody amateurs, ignorant as hell, making a hit single.” of the song itself “I don’t think ‘Come On’ was very good, in fact it was s___.” I’ve always liked the group’s BBC version of this better, but nonetheless… In a series of BBC Andrew Oldham interviews, he mentions the studio version of the track was recorded on four channels by Roger Savage at Olympic (at the old West End location). He discusses recording this track at the beginning of the second link on the following website: http://www.bbc.co.uk/london/entertainment/music/andrew_loog_oldham_interview.shtml Roger Savage’s account of the session is a bit more telling. The following excerpts are from The Rolling Stones – A Rough Guide (by Sean Egan), which has a surprising number of first hand accounts by ‘Stones engineers from the 60s. Apparently Stu played piano when the song was recorded… “There was not a lot of input…except that Andrew wanted me to take the piano down or almost out actually…I felt a bit embarrassed taking the piano out and then the group coming up to the control room, which was on the second floor at Olympic, and then playing it back and nobody saying anything because there was no piano even though Ian Stewart was playing. It was just not even discussed.” Poor Stu. This all took place only 3 days after he was booted from performing with the group onstage at Andrew’s insistence. Fortunately, we'd hear from him in subsequent sessions.
