Beggars Banquet is it for me.

With incredible drumming on trax like:

Sympathy for the Devil
Street Fighting Man
Stray Cat Blues and
Jigsaw Puzzle

I am hard pressed to find anything better. Sure, Charlie Watts never has a bad day, never a missed lick, and is always recorded at the top of his game, and his drumming on Some Girls, Emotional Rescue, and earlier LPs like Exile and Goats Head Soup (100 Years Ago!!!) is so memorable. But, for me, the stuff on Beggars never ceases to remind me that the Stones' shift out of adolescence and into rock and roll "adulthood" was not just Keith and Mick, but Bill and Charlie both turning up their game worlds above that which we'd heard before.

Woof!!!

And which track? (doesn't have to be from the same album)

My vote:

Album: Emotional Rescue, hands down
Track: Summer Romance, maybe

What's your vote?

When I saw your subject title, before even opening the thread, this was my choice, and Summer Romance specifically. With the original LP on a good system you can hear that bass drum get very subtly louder. Maybe they just mixed it that way but either way it’s awesome. I changed speakers and I can’t hear it anymore.

Same here, and I wanna add Start Me Up.

Some Girls is a pretty bloody well fantastic album, showcasing his skills. Respectable is a rockin' lil' number!

It's possibly a bit strange that the time frame of his style changing was 1977-78 when he really started to hold off on the hi-hat when he hits the snare.

Another thing that changes - the latter portion of the SOME GIRLS sessions, it seems, is when he got the China crash.

She's So Cold is the absolute perfect example of the 1977 onward Charlie.

The previous style is presented perfectly on Jigsaw Puzzle, Let It Bleed, Rocks Off, Dance Little Sister, all those thumpers.

Perhaps you have not heard the finale of the 1973 shows where Charlie propels the band into A different stratosphere. Street Fighting Man.

Honestly, I think Honky Tonk Women is incredible drumming with its simple 'in your face' groove and lack of show offness. Perfect drumming for that song.

I think some of his best drumming is on Voodoo Lounge

Also, I love his drumming on "Lowdown"

I think the only track with Wood on drums is Sleep Tonight. I know there is drumming on DW by Fig and Jordan but not sure which tracks. Too Rude didn’t sound like Charlie to me

"On Too Rude, I got to play the drums. That was when Charlie was going through a terrible time with Shirley. They were having lots of heavy arguments and so Charlie was often late, or Shirley would come into the studio and forcibly drag him out. On one of those nights Keith said, All right, you're on drums, Ronnie... The drum sound was very dynamic: I ended up sounding like Solomon Burke's drummer. I was very proud of it, actually".

- Ron Wood, 2003

Then there is this quote:

"One night he and I had gotten there first, Charlie walked in, and we started to play it. By now this song is insisting on being on this album. That song said, I'm in! It wasn't anything to do with me. I believe that songs arrive at your doorstep and all you do is give them an airing".

- Keith Richards, 1986

So, it's hard to tell... The Solomon Burke-thing might mean that Ronnie is mixing up Too Rude with Sleep Tonight, though - if that is possible at all, that is

I love the visual of the Stones in the studio jamming away, and then Shirley shows up, and everybody awkwardly stops playing, and Keith pretends to tune his guitar and Ronnie goes to the loo and Mick takes a phone call, until finally Charlie shuffles away with Shirley. And then Keith looks up and say, 'All right, wot now?'

That's what I was thinking immediately, as well. But it's not one following the other, it's both Watts, Richards, Wyman and Taylor going into a frenzy as a single animal.

I always thought it was Keith who started increasing the tempo on SFM, and that Charlie followed him to a T smiling smiley

Yes,Keith might did the "go", but they united. Them 1973 versions are impossible to re-do by themselves or any other band

I think Charlies drumming on "Exile" is perfect !
Also his drumming on Pete Townsend / Ronnie Lane's "Rough Mix" is awesome !

And for Charlie purists, "One Charlie to Another" the drumming is excellent

Fiji Jim (Some Girls outtake 1978) has the classic bump n' grind groove Charlie, Bill & Keith are so famous for.
