Thanks for posting! I have heard some of these and I agree, particularly with Dead Flowers at Leeds, that is an excellent solo. I haven't heard Oh Virginia yet...thanks for reminding me. I want to hear that stuff as I haven't yet.

Always dug Sway. Not a "blues", has some atmosphere, but doesnt go into TWFN land either. It plays nicely within a certain level of confinement.

If you ever had to prove the Rolling Stones were the greatest rock and roll band in the world in their prime....this is your best argument.



Wow.

And this.





They were hot.

Keith was like a razor.. MT just brilliant.

They deserved the title GRNRBITW at the time.

MT is unbelievable here.





Pete Townshend volume stutters and all.

Jeeze... firey.

Keith is a rock as he always was back then.

Maybe the Stones never really appreciated what they had.

It appears the idea is more about creating more and more Taylor threads than it is about anything... and it seems that the Taylordorks wont stop creating these Taylor threads until the entire front page, and probably page 2 too, is nothing but Taylor threads.

Thank @#$%& he didn't or The Rolling Stones would have sounded like many other bands. It is a positive thing that Keith had a more rhythm and blues, Chuck Berry playing style.

In Barbara Charone's book about Keith she says something about Mick Taylor playing solos at those sessions that could rip your head off. On Oh Virginia, a countryish ballad. Keith and Spedding on acoustics. Mick Jagger singing backup, When Mick Taylor comes in it will rip your head off. Loud in the mix and stunning in its effect.

Since 89, Stones have sounded just like any other band, a polished Las Vegas show band - no big surprise, no certain specialies, nothing. Tje "biggest thing" is Mick running back and forth on the stage instead of focusing on singing and Ronnie and Keith waving with their arms and posing. No wonder Bill said good-bye.

Go and listen to some real blues players, they are not "any other band", they have their own style. Listen to Buddy Guy, his sound is not just another band.

Mathijs.....you sound like a very knowledgable musician/technician. I have heard a variety of live and studio MT moments.....Red House, the live Carla Olsen stuff and many others. The older Stones boot world is beginning to open up for me, so I have yet to hear the ultra-obscure. All this being said, I am interrested in your opinion of the studio Sway? I posted my feelings on it earlier. I like it very much....thoughts?

Taylor himself can't play like that anymore.

Mick Taylor and Keith in their prime! What other guitar duo could top them? I can't think of any! Taylors solo on cyhmk the other night with Keith playing those riffs underneath! Took me back in time for for a minute! It was the two of them together that did it for me.

Rambler - brussels #2
Sympathy - YaYa's
Stray Cat - YaYa's
Sway - Sticky F
SFM - YaYa's - probably his quickest finger picking work (just before the beginning of the last verse)
...and there's more

The problem with Mathijs is that he probably is as good as Taylor as for guitar playing technics (I believe his word), but that he's not able to bring out a proper solo (again: his own word). And I know many musicians/players tend to be rather jealous.

Not a typical solo, but his playing on You Gotta Move is authentic and real. Beautiful!

I don't hear any link between this continuous improvised (electric) melody, and his playing on you gotta move, which is indeed more traditional and predictable.
I prefer Taylor's freestyle here - it reminds me of Jeff Beck. Listen to "Wired".

What solo on Ya Ya's' "Rambler?" There is no solo on that live version of the song. 1972 and 1973? Sure. The Ya Ya's version? Just a bunch of riffs and rhythm guitars, but no solo to speak of.

Are you serious? Are you actually deaf? From 7:47 (7 minutes and 47 seconds) into Midnight Rambler on Get Yer Ya Yas Out until 8:17 (8 minutes and 17 seconds) for a total of about 30 seconds, Mick Taylor plays one of the greatest, most tasteful solos EVER that climaxes in pure guitar bliss, nirvana, heaven, whatever you want to call it! It's an absolute genius solo that starts off a bit repetitive and ends in perfection! Pal, don't tell me it don't exist because I have listened to this song thousands of times! lol

I guess I just wouldn't call that a solo. Compared to what's done in the rest of the live, later (early 70s) Ramblers with Taylor, that's just a couple of guitar fills. Not really a solo. I'm a musician, btw, if you're gonna use some ridiculous "must not be a musician like *I* am" argument, the kind that goes on here year after year . . .

Absolutely, I would agree 100% that it's a great fill. Just relistened to it though and I still wouldn't call that a solo. It's a few guitar fills thrown in as the tempo picks back up, i.e. it's lead guitar, but lead guitar doesn't equal solo. It's some garnishes, but yes, they're nice!

I just love how he makes that blues track 50 years older with his tone smiling smiley

BTW, if you can make an old predictable tune like this shine, you've done a great take thumbs up
