The Rolling Stones - Come On/Tell Me...

Simon Drowner just posted a link to The Rolling Stones first single, a cover of Chuck Berry's Come On.  According to Wikipedia the band refused to play it live and Decca only bought one ad to promote it.  I thought I had never heard it before but checking my iTunes I must have as it's on More Hot Rocks (Big Hits & Fazed Cookies).

The Chuck Berry original:

I was also thinking about The Stones' Tell Me the other day.

The Dead Boys covered it on their second album, a really great version, probably my favourite thing The Dead Boys did.
