Final mixing and overdubbing of 'Star Star' took place during May-June 1973 at Island Studios, London. The music itself is basically the definitive rip-off of a Chuck Berry song that has never been written. Keith Richards' R&B riff is Berry lead guitar at its best. Mick Taylor plays the rhythm track, and Ian Stewart once again is a natural on piano.
