  1. After a very disappointing decade (during the 80's EC had two big problems: booze and Phil Collins) he was trying to prove himself and the fans that he still "had it". So came those "12 nights" records and stuff like this. To me, this sounds like they said "hey, how about we play Stone Free?" And then gathered at some studio, played it and recorded it. Maybe Rodgers added some color to it… That 3rd Stone From the Sun excerpt at the end is nice… Could've done better, in my opinion.

  2. Honestly, I do not dislike this version. I don't know if it should be compared to the original (probably not), but I've appreciated the "funky" arrangement (which is of course due to Nile Rodgers' production), and I like Clapton vocal interpetation.

    Lyrics:
    Every day in the week
    I'm in a different city.
    If I stay too long,
    People try to pull me down.

    They talk about me like a doll,
    Talking about the clothes I wear.
    They don't realize
    They're the ones who're square.

    And that's why
    You can't hold me down.
    I don't want to be down,
    I got to move on, hey.

    Stone free to do what I please.
    Stone free to ride the breeze.
    Stone free, I can't stay.
    Got to, got to, got to get away.

    A woman here, a woman there,
    Trying to keep me in a plastic cage.
    They don't realize
    It's so easy to break.

    But sometimes I get a — huh.
    Feel my heart kinda running hot.
    It's when I've got to move
    Before I get caught.

    And that is why
    You can't hold me down.
    I don't want to be tied down.
    I got to move on, hey.

    Stone free to do what I please.
    Stone free to ride the breeze.
    Stone free, I can't stay.
    Got to, got to, got to get away now.
    Got to, got to, got to get away.

    Stone free to ride the breeze.
    Stone free to do what I please.
    Stone free, I can't stay.
    Stone free, I got to, got to get away.

    Stone free, I'm gonna leave her right now.
    Stone free, don't jump in that bed
    Stone free, moving on down the highway.
    Stone free, got to, got to, got to get away.

    Stone free, oh yeah babe.
    Stone free, bye bye baby.
