"Wild Horses" was first released in 1970 by the Flying Burrito Brothers as the Stones didn't think the demo was worth recording fully. The "West Coast" Flying Burrito Brothers were founded in 1968 in Los Angeles, California, by Gram Parsons and Chris Hillman. Bassist/keyboardist Chris Ethridge (who had played alongside Parsons in the International Submarine Band), pedal steel guitarist"Sneaky" Pete Kleinow and session drummer "Fast" Eddie Hoh rounded out the lineup. It was subsequently recorded by the Stones for their 1971 album Sticky Fingers when they felt it was worth reconsideration. Released as the second US-only single in June 1971, "Wild Horses" reached number 28 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. A reworked studio version recorded in 1995 appeared on the album Stripped. This version was released as a single in early 1996.
