Just two weeks? Why the sudden change of interest?

There was a thread a few years back about whether the Rolling Stones had many gay fans. We should resurrect that one.

then Ressurect that one and count me in as the gayest of you all. No need to touch this one though, I already skipped to Beast of Burden.

Well, better LATE than never, I always say! When I was 25, I'd been heavily into the Stones for 14 years!! I feel so OLD but it has been a journey that I wish I could take all over again. This band has seen me through some desperate times, happy times and every time in between. I can't even describe what they mean to me. You do have some catching up to do but that will be FUN! I still go back in time by looking at magazines and books that I bought about the Stones in the 60's and 70's and when I drag all of this memorabilia out, it takes me right back to the day I bought it. I can see myself as a very young person in my living room, pouring over the latest news. Enjoy the journey...it will keep amazing you.

Between reports on Rockman's gargling, may I suggest to CindyC that she put Elvis Presley Springsteen and and original Skynyrd first two albums into her nephew's list. Just to get a sense of his "nuances."

I think he does like Elvis already - I'll suggest Bruce although I'm not a huge fan myself. Thanks!

LIVE ALBUMS.

Well, that's about it. Ya-Ya's and No Security are about as good as it gets (some will tell you Ya-Ya's only). Live Licks is decent and I think worth having. Actually, all of the live albums with exception to Got Live If You Want It and Shine A Light are worth having.

Still Life (get the Virgin remaster if you can) has some fantastic work on it - Under My Thumb, Time Is On My Side and Just My Imagination are worth the price ALONE.

Love You Live's Honky Tonk is the best version - and guitar solo - you will ever hear of that song. There are other good things on Love You Live but overall it's a pretty bad album - but it certainly gives one a good idea of what was going on back then and that makes it fun, a fun album to listen to and I actually like the album a lot for some reason.

Live Licks has some good stuff on it - probably the best Brown Sugar you'll find and even Street Fighting Man is pretty good. The second disc is where it's at. Keith's tunes - The Nearness Of You and You Don't Have To Mean It are worth getting the album for.

Flashpoint is good for Start Me Up, Sad Sad Sad, Factory Girl and...Highwire. And maybe Sympathy - only because it's different than what they did in 1975 and 1969 - but if you have any of the recent DVDs then you really don't need Flashpoint - except for the greatest official version of Start Me Up you'll ever hear. If you can find a used CBS one that's fine, the Virgin remaster didn't do anything for it except for a different version of Sex Drive and some longer edits of the rambling Mick does between songs.

If you can find Stripped you'll be 100% pleased ( unless you are like me and can't stand "I'm Free" ) minus the live B-sides.

Anyway, that's my take on it.

A unofficial DVD called Ladies and Gentlemen. Just as long as the guitar plays, let it will steal your heart away.

I'm new to this board, but been a hard core stones fan for about 12 years. Glad to hear someone else has discovered the Greatest Rock n'Roll Band...my personal preferences for essential studio albums is Let it Bleed thru Tattoo You...live albums..Ya Ya's, and Love you Live are great for 60s and 70s, plus Stripped cannot be missed either...if you want a current sound Live Licks and Shine a Light are great too.

Stick with anything they did from 68-81. Can't go wrong.
PLEASE don't get into the world of high-end collectables or any huge live dics set from their current tours - stick to the real stuff.

Enjoying the real, good Stones doesn't mean you have to spend a lot of cash.

Your post brings me to a somewhat related question. My 12 y/o nephew is a guitar player and wants me to introduce him to the RS's music. He doesn't want the "hits" so Hot Rocks is out. I already gave him LIB. I'm going to get him Beggars & Sticky Fingers. I'm kinda thinking he might not be ready for Exile yet. I know when I first got that album I was a teenager and it was a little too over my head. It took me till my early 20's to truly appreciate it. Think I should go for say Between the Button or Some Girls instead?
try get yer ya ya's out ,and some girls .

Absolutely! My favorite songs and records are in this range (68-81).

As for the cash, I feel lucky in sense that I don't need to rebuy a collection of remasters (for the third time), because I never had the previous releases in the first place.

Already got Brussels - one of the best shows I ever heard. Ever! The only bitch I have about it is that @#$%& and quite a few other songs on the second disc were not recorded from the soundboard.

If theres any era of RS history I tend to forget it's 82-90. Maybe the 80's are just not my thing...i don't know.

The pre 68 records are magic. I swear, i sang "play with Fire" and "under my thumb" like a stray cat for 2 days in a row. mercy, mercy. Paint it black. Ruby. Mother's little @#$%&...helper, even the satanic stuff... dandelion, citadel, rainbow - just magic.
