Long-lost Mick Jagger, Carly Simon duet unearthed after 45 years


A long-lost duet between two music icons has been discovered 45 years after it was recorded.

On a tape owned by Rolling Stones collector Matt Lee, Carly Simon and Mick Jagger can be heard singing a song believed to be called “Fragile,” according to Rolling Stones fan web sites, The Associated Press reported.

Fans may have heard of the recording before, but haven’t heard the actual tune, which is described as a slow love ballad. Simon discussed the duet in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine two years ago, saying that the tape had been lost.

The song could also be known as “Fool to Cry.” Rolling Stone asked her, “Maybe ‘Fool to Cry’?” during the interview, and she responded, “Maybe, maybe,” before she started talking about what happened that day in the studio.

“We had this little back and forth at the piano for about an hour,” she said during the interview published on Nov. 29, 2016.

But they weren’t the only big names in the studio that day. 

“And then Paul and Linda [McCartney] came in, because they wanted to meet Mick. They’d never met before,” Simon said during the 2016 interview.

Simon sang a bit of the song while reminiscing about the recording during the interview. “Funny, funny, funny, funny, funny, how love can make you cry,” Simon vocalized during the interview

And it matches what is on Lee’s tape, except Jagger and Simon changed the word to change instead of cry, the AP reported.

Jagger sings most of the vocals, with Simon adding harmonies.

The duet apparently wasn’t the first collaboration between the music legends. It is said that Jagger sang backup on Simon’s hit “You’re So Vain,” and many believed he was the subject of the Grammy-nominated song.

She has denied it. 

Lee sent a copy of the song to Rolling Store to pass it Simon, the AP reported
