“out of time” by chris farlowe, born london, england, (1940), song: 1966, written by jagger/richards, produced by mick jagger on immediate records

farlow, one of the u.k.’s great blue-eyed soul singers, is sadly unknown in this country. his version of  “out of time”  hit number one on the british charts months after it first appeared on the stones’ great brian jones era “aftermath” album. it is, dare it be said, better.

farlow uses jagger’s instrumental track that wasn’t released with mick’s voice until the stones left the decca label and headed to their own “rolling stones” imprint and decca wanted to squeeze out an album of unreleased material. that album, “metamorphosis”, is an interesting pack of unrelated cuts that probably few stones fans own. however, chris farlow remains the man for this song.
