"19th Nervous Breakdown can be found on the album "Big Hits: High Tides, Green Grass" released in 1966. A great version of this song was featured on The Stones first live album "Got Live If You Want It" also released in 1966.

Answer: Street Fighting Man

At first called "Pay Your Dues" then changed to "Street Fighting Man." It went on to be the most political song the Stones had recorded, and is featured on the album "Beggers Banquet" released in 1968. Although not a commercial success, peaking at Number 48 on the Billboard Charts, it did prove lyrically very in tune with the reality of life in the late sixties.

"Gimme Shelter" is featured on the album "Let It Bleed" released in 1969. One of the most memorable times in popular music that a back-up singer stole the show. Singer Merry Clayton screamed her way into history, and added her own hook to make a great song greater.

She was married to Jazz great Curtis Amy who played the saxophone solo on The Doors classic "Touch Me." Now that's a musical family.
