Rolling Stones | Gimme Shelter (Merry Clayton backing vocal)

The Rolling Stones classic “Gimme Shelter” appeared as the opening to their 1969 album Let It Bleed.  Here you can hear a key excerpt from the track in which vocalist Merry Clayton powerfully delivers the line “Rape, murder. It’s just a shot away. It’s just a shot away…”  The track was recorded at Sunset Sound and Elektra Studios in Los Angeles and produced by Jimmy Miller.

VOCAL only (Merry Clayton):
