Mick JaggerThe Rolling StonesSingle Release

Street Fighting Man

31 Aug, 1968

The band releases their song, Street Fighting Man, from the album, Beggars Banquet. Jagger:

It was a very strange time in France. But not only in France but also in America, because of the Vietnam War and these endless disruptions…. I wrote a lot of the melody and all the words, and Keith and I sat around and made this wonderful track, with Dave Mason playing the shelani on it live. It’s a kind of Indian reed instrument a bit like a primitive clarinet. It comes in at the end of the tune. It has a very wailing, strange sound.
