Jagger, Mick
Original handwritten Manuscript for War Baby
1987. Complete, original handwritten manuscript for War Baby. 37 lines of neatly written lyrics (233 words) in pencil, all in Jagger's handwriting, on 3 sheets (!) of 8" X 10" lined paper (rectos only). Titled at the top, the verse and bridge notations in the left margin. A recording session draft, 1987, for his second solo album Primitive Cool (his1993biography also titled PrimitiveCool). The band featured polished supporting performances by Jeff Beck Dave Stewart, Vernon Reed, and G. E. Smith. Left edge minutely trimmed (no loss), 4 tiny staple holes at blank corner else fine. We've been selling these Rock & Roll manuscripts for 35 years and Jagger lyrics are mystifyingly rare. He told me he keeps them. Because of that, those that are complete, published, recorded and performed are marketplace chimeras, rarer than the manuscripts of all his parallel contemporaries, and this song is his shot at an antiwar message, not quite Give Peace a Chance or Blowin' in the Wind, but I've sold 2 dozen manuscripts by various Beatles, and more than that by Bob Dylan, yet this is the first Jagger manuscript I've ever had my hands on. And unlike Dylan, some of the Beach Boys, and many others, Mick Jagger does not write out fair copies for friends, or charity.
