Mick Jagger and Keith Richards talked about compiling the Stones’ live set: [“(Mick Jagger): “We always like to do songs that we’ve. . . Obviously we do a lot of songs that we do know, and it’s nice to find ones that we’ve never done before. So, we’re always looking for those.” (Keith Richards): “‘Doin’ Your Thing,’ you remember that one?” (Jagger): “I do actually, but I’m not going to sing it now, though.”] SOUNDCUE (:11 OC: . . it now though)
