Mick Jagger DID NOT play harp on the early Stones albums, as I recall. It was Brian Jones, their ill-fated founding member, who was the biggest blues fan in that group. Only after Jones died did Jagger pick up the harmonica.
Check the credits on those early albums. I believe you'll see harp credted to Mr. Jones. His playing was actually half-decent - better than what Jagger played in the middle period stuff.
