Everything Doxa said. Insightful lad that he is.

And Dear Doctor re the below:

"if you don't like any of these albums then you really are not a true stones fan

go to springsteen or dylans sites where you may belong"


Grow the F up.[/quot

Agreed. The beatles fans can go to a beatles site

Mr. D is okay - nothing special, not awful - but nowhere near their peak stuff.

Sure, Happy has only 2 chords but... are there any others? I can't think of one.

Happy two chords? Five in my book.

What's the fifth? I get four (if I count the two suspended chords) smiling smiley

Well, sure, the 4ths make it a 4 chord song, but it's based on 2 chords.

Dancing With Mr D is, in convenient retrospect, a combination of Day Tripper and 1969's live version of Satisfaction (slowed way down). I've not heard anything since with that practically same progression.

You are right about the studio Version but the 1973 live Versions are simply brilliant (think of Brussels, for instance).

Although I find GHS somehow badly mixed I always thought it was great that the Stones did not even attempt to repeat EXILE ON MAIN STREET but came up with something new - even though not every song was great. Back then they took the risk.

The GHS tracks were essential on the fantastic Tour of Europe 1973 (most probably their greatest tour ever).

I keep seein' this thread floating at the top of the list, at least until BV plants the individual travel pages for all the new gigs...

I know I commented last fall on the live clip from Zurich 2017 on YT... just a killer version from the field, filmed from right in front of the PA. The Stones could dust this one off and throw it on the live release practically untouched!

Kudos to Reto H. for the great job capturing this one, and so much more from that show, probably the best clips I've heard from No Filter 2017.

My old ringing ears still serve me from time to time!

I was stoked when this cut was gettin' rehearsed and then made the setlist, so I checked out all the versions on YT and this one stuck out immediately.

I thought I counted that already smiling smiley Are there three suspended chords?

Intro/refrain: three ”chords”
verse: three but one is the F so really it’s two new chords C and Csus


Edit: not C - B (!) and E not F

Formation-wise, you're right. On the kinds of chords we got ringing, I'm not so sure - as we're talking minimal variation here when it comes to those sus-"chords".

I see it as an interpretation of what a 'chord' means to different people. Different musicians will draw the line much earlier to call something a new chord. Personally I see it like GasLight - only two chords: B and E. The rest is Keith's thing, his strength: they are inversions, sus chords. And he is also very good at stacking instruments to form a chord. What is a chord but a triad, with optional added notes. at the end of the verse the Bass dips low and with that other note creates a possible F#. But when I listen to the basic first guitar, it hasn't strayed.
I'm sure we could dissect this performance bar by bar , and find proof for each stance, but it kind of misses the point of it all.

Re 'Dancing Mr D' and comparisons to other songs IMO it has a lot of "Miss You" in it. I never cared for this song too much (never disliked it either), but have now changed my stance on it. Really like it. Because of the placement of the main riff.

I do that, too. That's why I wrote this: "Formation-wise, you're right. On the kinds of chords we got ringing, I'm not so sure".

Because it's a tiny variation of licks we're talking about, really, not chords.

Futzing around within a chord, yes, true, they are different chords factually. But that's such nit pickiness! It's two chords, really, B and E.

Perhaps Dancing With Mr D is the originator of that somewhat menancing key of A chordal structure that Keith got into much later, because watching him play it in the 2017 video(s) you get that impression. He's in standard but he's really laying on it, which is what he did with Love Is Strong and Wicked As It Seems. There's a timing thing going on that is quite subtle that gives it a bit of a very slow jolt.
