Gimme Shelter

Let it Bleed, 1969

This is an excerpt of the song “Gimme Shelter.” The backing vocalist, Merry Clayton, had a small solo in the middle of the song, and since I believe she never got much credit for her vocals, I uploaded the isolated vocal track of her part. I always wondered who she was and I found out recently.She is a very experienced backup singer and has also done backup vocals (live and studio) for artists such as Ringo Starr, Ray Charles, Joe Cocker, Neil Young, and moreThis solo may just make the song for me. Her voice is so raw and powerful. Each time I listen to it, I get chills. The effect is much stronger when her voice is isolated.

The one thing I do believe as a feminist is that in order for us to have gender equality we have to stop making it a girl fight and we have to stop being so interested in seeing girls trying to tear each other down – it has to be more about cheering each other on as women.” 

Taylor being completely happy living her life with her friends in 2014.
