Having heard through the Pathe Marconi-tapes numerous times, the distinct country flavour (No Spare Parts, Do You Think, We Had It All, You Win Again) on the bonus disc was a big surprise. It is indeed excellent thumbs up

At least with this release it was possible to get the bonus music without having to buy a boxful of overpriced souvenirs. Yes, the bonus CD is a great album in its own right.

agreed. Love the Bonus cd . Think its very good. One can complain about it, but i dont.

MY is on the Rarities-cd. Gold is on Sucking In The 70s. Both albums are available, no?

I agrer about the having everything-part.

Rarities and Sucking In The 70's (which also has a great 1978 live version of When The Whip Comes Down - unavailable elsewhere...!) are out of print afaik - not rereleased by Universal so far...so, unavailable in theory, but of course available as used items on ebay and elsewhere...

I got Rarities and Sucking... from eBay recently. You shouldn't have any problems getting hold of either CD.

Rewind and Sucking were released a few years ago after being OOP for a very long time.

I think they were subsequently scrapped but shouldn't be too hard to find on EBAY. Rarities too.

I thought (and still think) that the bonus CD was the best Stones album in years, I play it all the time, unlike, say, ABB.


Same here Aqua...love, love, love it. Wish they would do one of those great songs in concert, but can't see it ever happening.


There's always hope one of the bonus songs gets played live. Look what happened to Silver Train this year!! Lots of candidates on the SG bonus disc for sure.

They blew it by packaging all the Exile/SG songs the way they did. Even if they didn't want to call it a new album, an album containing just the unreleased material would have sold more and given them a reason to perform it live. They did it with Doom and Gloom and One More Shot off a greatest hits comp. Would have given MT some opportunities on the Exile songs where there was no previous live history baggage, and the SG tunes would have showcased the best era of Ronnie and Keith together.

I agree, it's about the quality of the music not quantity.

The deluxe disc off Some Girls was a revelation.

I also agree from a marketing standpoint, they should have released this separately. It's just a damn good album on it's own, and doesn't really sound all that much like disc one, excepting Faraway Eyes.

Dare I say Fiji Jim , everything turning to gold, the way she held me tight, instrumental version of anything on some girls would of been QUALITY to fill the empty 20 minutes on bonus disc???

There are no "empty 20 minutes".

You dare.

But I think they can be more creative than just dumping everything they have extra on a 2 CD set and being done with it.

I'm not suggesting they necessarily go the path of releasing something along the lines of a Tattoo You 2, but I think if they staged releases of older material as 40-45 minute albums, where the songs complemented each other, even thematic, it wouldn't be a 'new' album, but it would be an album, not ODDS and SODS.

I opened up the deluxe box today...quite an indulgence really, but it is cool. The 'postcards', the poster, the book, I especially like the Beast of Burden vinyl 45 with pic sleeve.

For me, that alone was the price of admission!

I'm not sure if you're saying that because you liked what was on the album or not, but theoretically, there were. A typical CD (at least CD-Rs) can hold 700 MB of information or 80 minutes (whichever comes first), so I know that when I burn a CD, I burn 70-79 minutes. Most public (official) music releases, however, only do roughly one hour to one hour and five minutes worth of time on their CDs.

I'd consider getting the CimD box set before the SG set just due to the fact that the former has a soundtrack CD, a CD/vinyl of 1965 concert recordings, and, if it's anything like the L&G box set (great set, BTW), I'll get a...REPLICA SCARF!!! Oh, wait...Just get a movie poster replica and film cells... Neat... winking smiley

The SG box set does sound cool, though...

There is an alternate single version of Before They Make Me Run that needs to make the light of day. It's cool, slightly different bridgework and a tad laid back.

Thanks for the advice...I do already have both of those as well but your point is well taken. Not every box set is created 'equally'!

What is great about the L&G box? I don't own it myself. The documentary? Any other stuff? I've been enjoying the concert on dvd for decades, but can't really see the upgrade on the official release?

You are obviously not a complete nerd...the superdeluxe box sets which you generally pay and extra $100 for is for the complete nerd that wants a 'replica scarf' (In the event you want to go as 'Mick Jagger' at Hallowe'en), replica backstage passes (oh yeah, those will come in handy) and ACTUAL film cells from the ORIGINAL movie (so you can show them to friends).

While I am admittedly a nerd, I try to buy stuff like this on sale, because it is rarely actually 'worth it'.

Oh, and then there's the music too I guess.

I'm afraid I am, Treacle. But like you I take my time.

Ordered VL, B2B, ABB and Stripped on vinyl yesterday. Only NS and LL left to complete my official album vinyl collection. Not cheap...

You got a BACKSTAGE PASS REPLICA?!?! Luckyyy! smiling smiley

The box set has the L&G movie on disc 1, 'Stones In Exile' on disc 2, and 'The Dick Cavett Interviews' and 'Australian Tour Interviews 1973' on disc 3. Can't stand Cavett, but his dry humor paired with Jagger's witty comebacks are great.

Of course it's not worth $66, maybe $35-$45, though...

I was lucky to buy most of those when they first came out, they've really gone up in price haven't they?

But Live Licks IS NOT an official vinyl release, so you don't need to concern yourself with that, unless you're into the 'bootleg' aspect of it.

I got it for about $25 from Amazon.co.uk about 18 months ago (including shipping). Yes, that was a very good deal.

I haven't even opened it yet! I already had Stones in Exile and L&G on DVD.

I know, and I haven't really decided whether I'm going for the bootleg or not.

Yeah, $100+
