The B side of the 1967 En hand att hålla i 7" (a. o. also at discogs) is a track called "Drömmen" (= The Dream"), credited to Jagger/Richards/Oldham plus some U. Zetterlund for the translation.

According to SMDB and also mentoned elsewhere, the original title is "Star Star" (the Stones song aka "Starfuxxer"), which surely didn't exist at the time and was released in 1973. The recording group being 'folky' points towards a ballad or mid-tempo song and Andrew Loog Oldham being co-credited possibly to a song included on The Rolling Stones Songbook...

Having been unable to find any listening possibility or evidence for which song is really the original one: Can anybody give a helping hand?
