Jigsaw Puzzle (6:05)

Cover of Beggars Banquet

From Beggars Banquet and 2 other releases

“Jigsaw Puzzle,” sometimes spelled “Jig-Saw Puzzle” is a song by rock and roll band the Rolling Stones found on their 1968 album Beggars Banquet.

Written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, “Jigsaw Puzzle” is one of the longer songs on the album. It comes in just ten seconds shorter than “Sympathy for the Devil” to which it is stylistically similar.

Recording began at Olympic Sound Studios on March 25, 1968. Parts of the recording sessions are available on the bootleg market, and on these recordings Mick Jagger is on acoustic guitar, Keith Richards on electric slide guitar, Charlie Watts on drums, Bill Wyman on bass and Nicky Hopkins on piano. Brian Jones is not present on these sessions. The released version has Richards on overdubbed acoustic guitar, and Brian Jones added the distinctive “whine” at the end of the song with the mellotron. “Jigsaw Puzzle” has never been performed live by the Rolling Stones.
