The music is alright, but the new vocals by Jagger are out of tune to my opinion! Listen how he starts the song...
He needs to stop sing new vocals to old demos!! He has done it before and it sounds forced and not ok. Don't like it all. Sorry about that.
They're not demos, they're unfinished studio recordings. VERY BIG difference.
Bloody hell! Can’t wait to drive home tonight, windows down and blasting this on repeat.
what's the setlist?
At first listen I did not really like Mick's new vocals, but now I'm getting more and more into it.
Also a bit of a pity that Nicky's piano is buried in the mix, always loved that about the outtake version.
The official video has crystal clear video of the Stones 1973 live shows.They are not bootleg quality.Could it mean they have in the archives a film of alive 1973 show
Anybody know the characters given in the vid's closing credits? ( [youtu.be] )

They surely had access to the Brussels/London 1973 source video for this clip and can advise how much they have??
Not sure about this. Musically it sounds a bit “dull and flat”, almost out of tune. Or is it that the vocal’s sounds that way? I don’t know, the music doesn’t quite fit the vocals. It’s better than Scarlet, and I’m glad it’s here. But it’s not essential Stones. I’m not sure it’s even good Stones.
Cross cross brilliant
All the Rage so so

Love it! Channeling the New York Dolls?
Semi- decent tune musically, though a bit cliche - sounds like a band trying to sound like the Stones...almost a like a weird tribute band that have written their own "original" tune.
Overall prefer the bootleg version, but never liked it much either - that and this new version sounds like something that even the inferior Georgia Satellites or Black Crowes would have rejected.
And have to say, it's hard to get past Mick's silly and annoying vocals...sounds like a goose squawking...cartoonesque...high-pitched...like someone imitating/mocking Jagger.
In contrast, his new vocals on Criss Cross and Scarlet - however little may have been added - are way more subtle and even undetectable. Great job on those!
Can see why this tune was forgotten about, why they didn't pre-release like they did with Criss Cross and Scarlet, and why they didn't waste time with remixes.
Video is decent w/the vintage footage, but a bit spastic w/the lyrics, and these types of videos sort of get old fast anyways - watching once was enough.
In order of preference:
Criss Cross = A+ or a 10
Scarlet (single mix) - C or a 5
All the Rage - I (as in incomplete) or a 1
A bit of a stretch perhaps, but is this a bit of nod to Jim Morrison in the lyrics?
" ..want to make the biggest splash.. and "Get Out of Here Alive"..
A lyric in The Doors "One To Five" and also the title of one of the bios on him in the eighties. Expression goes back a ways, but Morrison seems most attributed to the quote.
"Five to one, baby One in five
No one here gets out alive,"
With his passing not that long before these sessions, seems like a nod to the lizard king to me
