Charlie Watts (from According to the Rolling Stones
): "The reggae influence on the songs on Black And Blue
came primarily from Keith... Mick was certainly into reggae. I had all those (reggae) records in France with me when we moved there and when we were recording tracks for Exile on Main St.
at Keith's house. Mick used to have them as well. I'd play him 'Cherry Oh Baby' or he'd play one to me. And The Harder They Come
was an album Keith listened to a lot."
