How did I miss this ?

B side to Love Is Strong

Nick Kent raved about it as being the best Stones track in ages and he was right

Nah, b-side material to me. A generic blues. The Stones always put a blues song on the record. As an homage to their roots I guess. This one didn't make it to VL.
And I can see why. I don't like the sound of VL by the way. Charlie in a staircase and all that crap. It doesn't warm you.

i didn't like VL either which is why I was so surprised to find myself liking The Storm - going back to their roots without sounding self-consciously retro..

Have always liked it, I remember reading Ronnie lobbied for this song to make the album.

VL is too long but contains some great material. The opening Side on my old cassette was an excellent run of songs. Side 2 isn't as good but does contain Thru and Thru, Mean Disposition and Brand New Car. Babylon overall is higher quality I think but whenever I revisit VL it is always a good listen.

Maybe because I grew up with the early Rolling Stones, but every time they do a down-to-earth blues song, I cheer up. By doing so they remind me where they came from and hoe I became passionate for the band. Stripped had apart from The Storm another traditional with I'm Gonna Drive. And then there is BB's Back of my Hand for instance. The Stones and blues ... inseperable.

Mick's vocals are horrible, and the tune itself is a nonsensical blues that goes nowhere.
Semi-decent guitars and drumming, but not enough to save the tune.

Great blues! However I love VL, which I consider to be one of the best works of the Stones ever.

Remember buying CD singles from the album. Loved So Young, this song not so much. Sounds like a generic Stones blues song.

(I've got an old Dobro that I call) Uncle Harvey...
I bought it from John Dopyera, one of the Dopyera brothers
(founders of Dobro). It's very special... It's a gold-plated
and wooden Dobro. In fact, Mick's playing it on The Storm,
which is the B-side of the first single, Love Is Strong.


- Ron Wood, June 1994

....Thee eloquent slur of Mick's vocals...
the sound of Patton if he'd attended Oxford ...

it all all harks back to 20's blues
an Keef's shimmering hyena in a
distant trap like vocals are just pure gold .....

I love it, it's a great autumn tune for some reason. It remains in my head as I am walking through the leaves, to paraphrase Bob.

Sorry, I did a search for The Storm before I started this thread and nothing came up

The same article by Nick (for Mojo) also raved about Out Of Tears which I came back to and he's right about that one too

Can't tell my future, and I can't tell my past
Lord, it seems like every minute, sure gonna be my last
The minutes seems like hours, and hours seems like days
The minutes seems like hours, hours seems like days

And it seems like my woman oughta stop her low down ways

.................................... Future Blues- Willie Brown 1930


And minutes turned to hours
And hours turned into days

The storm started howling
I'm out of my brain
I'm out of my brain

.................................. The Storm - Jagger/Richards 1994
