No, not 35 but 37.

I meant 37. It has "recut" after the title. Most likely a new take on #35, which is called "Still In My..."

Can you post a link? Or do I have to zip something again. I deleted the first time I downloaded the songs.
Thank you,

I edited the beginning and endings, this makes it more enjoyable to play regularly. I wish I could edit the center of Just Because where Mick slows the tempo and says something. This would nearly be a perfect track. Also if some of the repetition in Dreams could be cut out it would be great. Add the 4 official songs after changing their volume to sound like the others and this would make a great CD.

Amazing actually how everybody seem to like these recordings. They have been available in tape trading circles for some time, but they were very hard to trade as nobody was interested in 2002 material.

So you think these songs should have been released? I think Mick and Keith were right - not to do so! But what do we know...hehe...

Hard to say, since the songs weren't finished. But they do got potential, imo.

Certainly they could be improved. But there's a good foundation in these songs. They could have been great if they were finished. Makes me wonder how much of this stuff they have laying around. Seems they could go into a studio and easily finish off songs like these.

Sure. And after that we'll get 256 pages of moaning about boring ballads, uninspired Jagger's singing, re-circled cliches, and overproduced mastering winking smiley. Just imagine Dreams end up like Blinded By Rainbows and Love Test like biggest Mistake winking smiley.

Was it in regards to these 2002 sessions that Ron Wood said something to the effect that it is easier for them to start from the scratch than try to finish up some older things.

I can understand that kind of thinking. Usually the early part of process in creativity is that of throwing ideas and trying them freely - with no pressure of trying to make it right or of the final outcome. The latter/finish part is actually the hardest part in the process of creativity - it usually means some damn hard and boring work. And each decision has the pressure of 'getting it right' - you are dealing with the actual outcome and with which you need to live the rest of your life once it is released/published.

So I guess the charm we Stones die-hards here in these free-spirited, loose out-takes and sketches and think there is 'potentiality' would most probably not mean much to the Stones. They probably would hear there just still damn much to do. The actual nasty, hardest part of the process that defines if the track turns out to be a hit or a miss...

Been listening to these sessions quite a lot in the past days.

Some good stuff, very good at times, but none of the available songs had the potential of a hit single. I just can't imagine a Stones album with Trouble/whatever and Don't Stop as singles.

Could this be the reason why the album was not released?

p.s. Me thinks Mr. Jones is on bass

I think the schedule prevented the album from happening. It was their 40th anniversary, and 40 Licks was the record company's priority, it seems.

I also think it's Darryl. Before one of the songs, he's doing a little jazzy trick (almost inaudible) that Don Was, Keith or Ronnie never would have done.

Both Dreams and Love Is A Test (especially the latter) could have made good singles, imo, but only together with the up tempo Don't Stop.

Good point Doxa. Maybe this is the reason Chuck Berry didn't release his album until after his death? It stands to reason legendary icons wouldn't want their work to be pissed on. However, some times it's deserving I suppose. Anyway, I didn't think it was harder to return to a song than to start from scratch, but I'm no musician so I wouldn't know. So artists such as The Stones have all this stuff lying around why not think of a way to get it out so us hard-cores can enjoy it. They could make it exclusive and keep it out of the mainstream to avoid artistic criticism? I believe we could take this stuff for face value and get some happiness out of it. Seems some of the comments here already reflect that notion.

They didn't have much time. There were sessions only for three weeks, which began AFTER the tour announcement. If they really had wanted to do an album, they had started earlier, not in the last minute.

Maybe only very few people have/had something rare enough to offer in return in a trade fo this kind of material? If nobody (which I guess means among the hardcore traders) was interested in the material, it could have been torrented or else right away years ago.

Ronnie said something to that effect in "According to the Rolling Stones" (I think), that there was no time because of the impending tour.

The unreleased stuff was certainly not hit single material (although IMHO Don't Stop isn't either) in 2002 but with some more work (and unless over-produced to death) could have made cool album tracks. By today's standards, Angie perhaps wouldn't be hit single material either (too slow, too old-fashioned, etc.).

I believe what makes these tracks so charming to many people (incl. myself) is that the songs as such are there but still in a very basic state without added gimmicks, very reminiscent - to me - of concerts in the 70s when you just had a singer, one or two guitars, organ, bass and drums on stage and that was it, and it worked well. The songs could all be played live the way they are with no additional sound effects or big band needed. (What I also like - I must admit - is the 70s keyboard sound and the Jon-Lord-type organ.) The folks who like the outtakes are perhaps the same folks who would prefer for the Stones to keep things simple on the new album, and more naturally-sounding.

I guess your refer to the little jazzy jam that Chuck and the bass are doing during the banter before the 2nd version of proto-Trouble (track 4). That makes Darryl more likely than anyone else, indeed.

No, just implying that maybe the outtakes are good because the band is still good and can still play some great music!

Pretty sure Chuck had the album info and release date scheduled before his passing. And it's damn enjoyable IMO.....

As for the Stones, they LOVE making the critics eat crow.....over and over and over and over

No they do sound better, just six guys playing together in a room with great natural sound. Also ABB would have sounded better in such a sonic setting.

There was no intention to release an album.

After they announced the Licks tour and confirmed there'd be some new songs on 40 Licks (I think they originally said two songs but they released four), they spent 3-4 weeks in Paris going through about 25-30 songs (in various stages of completeness) that they had before settling on the four that they eventually put out.

There was no need to finish most of the songs (and no time to do so anyway)

I haven't read all through this thread but are people actually querying who plays bass? Darryl plays on the four released songs and is present on the recording sessions shown in 'Four Flicks'. Of course its him on bass.

I can't believe it. I just can't believe that in year 2002 the Stones would care to dedicate their valuable time to organize recording sessions (and involving Chuck and Darryl) just for the pleasure of doing music all together.

VL was published in 94. BtoB in 97. The times for a new one were mature, and I can remember that (at least here on IORR) the rumours were that an album was in the process of being recorded.

A new studio album in 2002 was never in the cards, they were touring on the 40th anniversary, a compilation was already a done deal by 2001, Mick said no for a new Stones album also in 2001.

The rumors were from Ronnie and Keith suggesting they might finish up the material from 2002 (and maybe reach back to BABYLON) while on the road in 2002 or 2003. Ronnie said the songs were almost done. Apparently some of us hearing these tapes agree with him. I agree with Mick. These rough ideas would need a lot of work to become finished songs and it wasn't going to happen while on tour.

Time would certainly have been ripe for a new album (in the sense that by 2002, the last album was already 5 years old). But releasing a large compilation and a new album (more or less) simultaneously would have been a strange move from a commercial/merchandising point of view.
I understood Ronnie's remarks in such a way that they went into the studio to cut the extra tracks for 40 Licks but ended up with enough material for a full new album (in whatever state of completion the extra-extra material was in the end). He doesn't say that a full new album was a real option, he just sounds (to me) like he regrets there wasn't one.

Of course, as a fan you feel somewhat let down when reading him saying it would have taken very little additional effort.
