: It's hearsy to say such things about "Dear Doctor".
: You need to listen to this song about five more times to get the true gist of of the sarcastic beauty of this song... I consider Beggars Banquet to be the first of their four best albums... You must not forget it came after Satanic Majesties when the boys were still shaking surrealism out of their bones. In my humble opinion this is the very best album because they threw the garbage out and got back to doing what they do best... And I also agree that jumping Jack Flash should have been put on this album....
Yeah, I think the irony of that track, and its amusing "country" story makes it a minor classic. And of course Brian's harmonica is pretty smokin' and Keith's acoustic is impeccable. Personally I think Beggars is a masterpiece. Satanic, however, if they dropped some of the dross, and added "Dandelion," "We Love You," an early take of "Child of the Moon," and a Brian Jones mellotron instrumental, would have been considered a great album in a different style.
