John Fogerty Featured on Rolling Stones' Deluxe "Some Girls" Reissue

PRNewsFoto/Universal Music EnterprisesCreedence Clearwater Revival legend John Fogerty makes an appearance on one of the unreleased songs included on the deluxe, expanded version of The Rolling Stones' Some Girls album, due out November 21.  The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer contributed hand claps, along with Mick Jagger and producer Don Was, on a cover of the 1959 Freddy Cannon hit "Tallahassee Lassie."

Complete details have been revealed about all 12 of the bonus tunes featured on the second CD of the Some Girls reissue.  In addition to Fogerty and Was, other musicians outside of the band's core lineup who appear on the recordings include longtime Stones keyboardists Ian Stewart and Chuck Leavell, and harmonica player Sugar Blue -- whose harp also was prominently heard on smash Some Girls single "Miss You."

While most of the extra tracks were written by Jagger and Keith Richards, the disc also includes renditions of Hank Williams' "You Win Again"; Troy Seals and Donnie Fritts' "We Had It All," which previously was recorded by country greats Waylon Jennings and Conway Twitty; and the aforementioned "Tallahassee Lassie," which Cannon co-wrote with Bob Crewe and Frank Slay.  In addition, Jagger and Richards share songwriting credits with Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood on "When You're Gone."

"It's wonderful to see the quality of these tracks measuring up to the songs that came out on the original album," Wood said in a statement about the Some Girls reissue's bonus tunes.

Added Richards, "It's an extension of what was going on then.  Sometimes great stuff gets left behind and it's great to see it out there."
