I Fell Down To My Feet And I Saw They'd Bled

I've been digging Ol' Butch's cover of "Jumpin' Jack Flash" a lot lately, so much so that I figured I'd share. I love the Iggy-ish proto-punk snarl to the vocals on this one, plus Alex's stuff always sounded much better when he had a good drummer behind him. Like with a lot of the covers on "1970" and "Flies On Sherbert", Alex really knew how to crawl into the pocket of a song and roll around until he was filthy with it, something that was missing from his later solo stuff.
