Mick Jagger Says Lost Rolling Stones Songs Are ‘All Terrible’

But Mick soon changed his mind, as he told the in a new interview. “That’s always my initial reaction, ‘They’re all useless!’” he said. “I mean, actually, I always liked the songs, but they weren’t finished.”

Then the concept of cleaning up the original recordings was discussed. “Sonically, they still sound like they were recorded then, even if they weren’t perfect,” he noted. “You can make them sound a little better than they did.” In the end, he decided "these three songs are all up there with the rest of the songs on this record.”
