Honky Tonk Women, Stones, question

So I've just discovered the Rolling Stones. Listened to a friend's "Forty Licks." What's the deal with "Honky Tonk Women?"

Is that version on "Forty Licks" only available on that album? I went to the Stones' official site and it lists "Honky Tonk Women" as being only originally on "Get Yer Ya-yas Out" or whatever it's called.

I'm trying to find out where the studio version on "Forty Licks" appeared and want that album, because basically, I feel like a loser only owning an artists' greatest hits package. Is it only on "Forty Licks" or their singles collection album?

Honky Tonky Women was a version of Country Honk (released on Let It Bleed) that was only ever released as a single, never officially on an album. If you buy the singles collection, or any of the greatest hits packages that include the songs from the sixities, you'll get Honky Tonk Women.

I swear I read years back that Honky Tonk Women was the result of Richards/Jagger boozing with Gram Parsons. Does anyone know if that's true?

Mick and Keith (most especially Keith) hung out with Gram Parsons a lot in the late 60's/early 70's. You can attribute a lot of their country sounding songs from the period (Country Honk, Dead Flowers, several tracks from Exile On Main St.) to his influence.
