Ernie's sax holds the Hampton live version together. Keith is all hit and miss. Sometimes unbearable to listen to on solos. And don't forget Bill's bass.

Out of curiousity, what makes you say that? IMO, he plays brilliantly. Some insane licks in there. And the interplay with Ronnie (and Ernie) is exceptional.

He plays great rhythm guitar and great licks on and off. I know his idiosyncratic style so I appreciate much of his playing. It's some of his solos I have a problem with. That is where Ernie comes in and fills the gap. Keith talked a lot about Chuck Berry winging it. I think that is sometimes a good word to sum up some of Keith's solos. Sometimes off beat, un-melodic and repetitive. You're a guitar player, Dandy. Do you not hear these things? Or is there something wrong with my ears?

Had to picked out a 2017-solo I would have understood. I really love what he plays, solos included, on this particular version. It's a matter of taste, I guess.

Do you have a problem with all the Stones's guitar solos between 1962 and 1969 as well? If so, I might understand where you're coming from smiling smiley

On the Still Life version the 8 bar "break" at about 3.10 is a goosebumps moment for me every time. The sax solo ends, and everything is stripped back to Charlie's kick drum, Bills bass groove and the 2 guitars are sheer perfection. The engineer mixed the crowd in perfectly.

The Some Girls Live in Texas and Leeds-versions are great contenders to the Still Life rendition. Hampton is the greatest, imo.
