Ronnie Wood already involved with the stones in 74 and Taylor quit the band by the end of the year. (according to Wiki)

Good track but I don't hear a lot of Jimmy on it.  

Really?  The guitar solos sound right out of PG.

I was thinking Page's guitar sounds similar to  the tone he was using on the "Lord Sutch + Heavy Friends" album, especially the rhythm riff.

Don't believe everything you read on wikipedia.

Great track, and the ol’ session dog Jimmy fits like a glove.  Would’ve been a great Stone if he was so inclined!

Being a member of the Rolling Stones would have been a complete waste of Jimmy Page's talent.

Hey guys!, how's it going?

I run a YouTube channel and tackle a lot of Page. I pay attention to my analytics, especially over the last few months and noticed a push to my Scarlet video form www.ledzeppelin.com Really grateful for the share, can't believe I never signed up to the forum until now. No looking back now. 

Hope you're all well! ❤️

 

Best,

Sped

Sorry, not impressed and as said above, not much Jimmy on it.

Eh ! Page is all over it, the main riff, played all the  through is Page.

Still don't dig it, just nothing there for me. And his solo is all of 12 seconds long and not a stand out or even anything special. Could have been played by anyone.

I don't dig it either, it's ok, no wonder it's sat in the fault for nearly fifty years.

and TBH I was a bit confused when I heard the song as the reports through the years about this song said it was either about / for his daughter Scarlet and that it was more pastoral sounding, at least that is what I remember reading. If this is a song about his daughter, her past is more scandalous than Jimmy's, and at only three to boot!

Not suggesting he should’ve been a Stone, or should’ve wanted to be a Stone.  Just pointing out his ability to serve the band, and the song.  A glimpse at what made him so in demand as a session player IMO.

More of a groove than an actual song? That's not always a bad thing, but here I can see why it sat in the vaults. Agreed re. the observations on Jimmy's PG-type playing. I'm glad I've finally heard this, but, well, y'know...

It does sound a little like Page, I'm wondering about who is playing the second rhythm guitar. (speaker left if listening through headphones)

Obviously the Stones wouldn't have sat on the song for 47 years if it was the quality of a "Kashmir", "Rain Song", or "Ten Years Gone". It is what it is...a curio, another piece in the Jimmy Page puzzle, nothing more, nothing less.

Watts' drum recording sounds so damn good on this. The others? Meh.

Agreed. I think some things (like percussion) were recorded (re-recorded) recently to make the mix sound fresh.

Its not Charlie. Its a guy named Bruce Rowland, played with Fairport Convention and Joe Cocker.
