The more familiar version of the song was recorded in the Spring of 1969 and first released as a single in July 1969. This version was included on the Through the Past, Darkly compilation in September 1969 and on all subsequent compilations. The version released on Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out was recorded at Madison Square Gardens in November 1969.
