Well, Nico (among others) think it's Nicky. I suppose it's hard to know if it's just speculation. Just out of curiosity, why are you certain it isn't?

The words of the people involved at the time close to the time, but especially Nicky's own words in a 1967 Beat Instrumental in which he is excited that he'll be on a stones release for the first time... that being We Love You.

Given the stones were recording already by February 1967 it's understandible that through time their memories of when Nicky started recording with them will be a bit mixed up.

The only bad thing about "All Down the Line" I could manage to say was that I was very disappointed in the alternate mix on the flip side of "Happy." I love the EXILE mix. I love the official live versions except for the one on SHINE A LIGHT. However, I've noted those who spoke against it (especially the remark about Side 4) and the names have been struck from my Christmas card list.

Rocky, is the B Side mix the alternate version? The Clapton version, that Keith supposedly preferred? Or just a different mix of Exile version?

Cheers to both our Hopkins and theirs. Well said and well-played. Everyone acquits themselves well with ADTL. That and "Rocks Off" are bliss for me as well. Much of EXILE is. Add "Let it Loose," "Rip This Joint," "Tumbling Dice," "Sweet Virginia", "Loving Cup," "Happy", "Stop Breaking Down" "Shine a Light," and "Soul Survivor" and you've got 11 reasons I'll forgive this band for just about anything.

All Down The Line is one of the best rock and roll records anybody ever put out, including them, imo.
Not a trace of doubt ever. As sure as that PUNCH peeps are talking about 8 seconds into Rocks Off. Oh yeah.
This for many in many ways, is one of the best rock and roll songs EVER....

Man I was working some shit jobs back in the day; night shifts on factory lines for all kinds of brutal dock and line work...and I'd hear that line
about the whistle blowing....and then Taylor would take off...
In many way, it's the best doing the best of their best....you got all the main players kicking it at the same time and that wouled never happen again on record or on tour....

For me it's MASSIVELY Great, fully realized incredible rock and roll record. One of the All Time Best.
Studio AND Live. It's definitional seminal perfect Rolling Stones for some fans, and I'm one of 'em. Nothing else sounds like this. It's great.
It's a great song.

MASSIVELY agree!

..."but I still think that the great Stones album of their mature period is yet to come. Hopefully, Exile on Main Street will give them the solid footing they need to open up,
and with a little horizon-expanding (perhaps honed by two months on the road), they might even deliver it to us the next time around.

...Unfortunately, he was wrong...

Since we DID get Exile, I wouldn’t say “unfortunately”... But indeed, he was wrong.

Re: Rolling Stone album review on Exile
Date: August 15, 2018 14:17

Well, if you read the GHS-review (albeit by another reviewer) the "horizon-expanding, more mature album did come (although not to raving reviews) smiling smiley

These guys knew their stuff, but we have to remember that they did get these albums in real time, without the digesting and post-reflections we've made.

Dandy, do you know how to add a spelling programme in the comment section? Mine seems to be set on Swedish.
Which is useless if you write in English. It would help immensely. I can't even spell to unfortunately...

Re: Rolling Stone album review on Exile

Yeah, it's pretty annoying with all the red lines smiling smiley

You'll have to mark the text you've already written, and then right-click it. Then you'll see your settings (on your browser, though).

I just found out, thanks to your question. No more red lines! thumbs up

I think they did play it once in 72, but I agree with you that it is a fantastic song.

Ok - the 1972 concert version is too electric for me. That is not the intent of this masterpiece. It is a disservice on how this song was originally recorded.

Re: Exile on Main Street most undrerrated song
Date: December 5, 2018 12:18

It would have been interesting to hear a good mix of that live take, with the guitars down in the mix and vocals and horns up.

It sounds good.

Sweet Black Angel was the first song The IORR Band played together on stage (during the soundcheck), after we met for the first time, btw. We played it in the show as well smiling smiley

Don’t think I’ve ever heard that live version, it’s ambitious. Could have also been played acoustically in the asweet Virginia slot.

Most underrated?: Turd On The Run for me

Very different from the album version, I think this live version is great, very interessting. Still it might some more elaboration. What as pity they didn't give it another try

Absolutely. I would even say "criminally underrated". In the same way like, let's say "Too Tight" from BtB, but that's a different album of course.

Soul Survivor deserves a mention here, too. Both of these tunes are very important album cuts, yet very few talk about them..
