Jeff from MinneapolisMy cd for Stripped and Let it Bleed does not give Johnson a songwriting credit, seems odd.
Barry from New York, NcIt's a pretty sad song I suppose. A guy is following his love to the train station. She gets on board and the train leaves forever. That is definitely Love in vain!!
Christy from Morristown, TnThis song is brilliant and it is The Stones best cover, ever. The vocals and the mandolin, in particular, are incredible!
James from Bronx, NyAwesome song. Live version is GREAT
Demian from Buenos Aires, ArgentinaThe Stones in the '60s and '70s recorded this song, the best version is "madisson square garden 1972". The stones recorded other songs of Robert Jonson like Stop Breaking Down, in Exile on Main Street. Wonderfull version.
Benjamin from Milwaukie (oak Grove), OrIs it true the Dixie Chicks got the idea for adding the mandolin for their version of Fleetwood Mac's 1975 hit "Landslide" by listening to the Stones' version of "Love in Vain"?
R from Montreal, Qc, CanadaI agree the version on Ya Ya's Out is incredible specially with Taylor's solo. The one on Let It Bleed gives a great respect to R Johnson.
Johnny from Los Angeles, CaI'm the exact opposite of you Stefanie!
Stefanie from Rock Hill, ScI've never heard this version, but I love Johnson's version. It's incredible I think!
Keith from Front Royal, VaI think they improved it immensely.
Sammy from New York, NyIt's tough for me to say which version is better between Johnson's and the Stones'. I must give Johnson credit for originally composing the song, but I think the Stones' version has more of an emotional impact on me. The music combined with Mick Jagger's passionate wails are deeply poignant.
Xx from Whakatane, Hong KongThe best Stones cover ever. Again, the version on Get Yer Ya-Yas out is really good.
Nick from San Francisco, CaJohnson's version is rougher, but better I think. I like the Stones' version, though.
At the end of "Love Bites" by Def Leppard, there are some vocals that are hard to understand. It was rumored that they were: "Jesus of Nazareth, Go to Hell." It is actually producer Mutt Lange saying "Yes it does, Bloody Hell," with a thick British accent.
