As a result, the band's production team combed through unused recordings from prior sessions, some dating back almost a decade. While a few of Trick Bag - Johnny Winter - Guitar Slinger songs were used essentially as-is in their original form, most of these earlier recordings were not complete, consisting of song fragments that needed a lot of work.

There was no time to make a whole new album and make the start of the tour. The album's associate producer, Chris Kimseywho had been associated with The Stones dating back to Sticky Fingers said " Tattoo You really came about because Mick [Jagger] and Keith were going through a period of not getting on. There was a need to have an album out, and I told everyone I could make an album from what I knew was still there.
And then I presented it to the band and I said, 'Hey, look guys, you've got all this great stuff sitting in the can and it's great material, do something with it. Many of the songs consisted at this point of instrumental backing tracks for which vocals had not been recorded.
Jagger said in a interview, "It wasn't all outtakes; some of it was old songs I had to write lyrics and melodies. A lot of them didn't have anything, which is why they weren't used at the time — because they weren't complete. They were just bits, or they were from early takes". The backing tracks for both songs were cut in late during the Goats Head Soup sessions and feature Mick Taylornot Ronnie Woodon guitar.
Taylor, who was not credited, later demanded and received a share of the album's royalties. They feature Billy Preston on keyboards and Ollie E. Brown on percussion. Wayne Perkins plays the lead guitar on "Worried About You".

Robert Christgau gave the album a good review but criticised "Start Me Up" in his Pazz and Jop essay insaying, "Its central conceit — Mick as sex machine, complete with pushbutton — explains why the album it starts up never transcends hand-tooled excellence except when Sonny Rollins, Jaibait - Exile - Dont Leave Me This Way, invades the Stones' space.
