"100 Years Ago" live

Hello. New member here -- hailing from S-s-sweden (the sacred land of blond ladies, big mountains, deep forests, the midnight-sun, and so on). Friend of the-one-and-only-world's-famous LieB. Well-well-well.

Don't you think "100 Years Ago" sounded at least reasonably good live 1973? I mean -- why did they drop it? To me, that song was one of the real highlights the scarce few times it was played. That intro ... Hot stuff.

The only known performances are the first two shows of the '73 European Tour (Vienna and Mannheim).

The Goats Head version is great, thanks to Jagger's superb vocal and Taylor's soaring, lyrical guitar, rooted in blues power. Keith sounds like he's just playing bass, so I doubt they'd resurrect it live as neither Wood nor Keith played guitar. And I've never heard those rare live versions - what are they like compared to GHS?

Isn't Billy Preston prominent on keyboards on that?
They might not ressurect it for that reason too.

Sounds quite close to the original studio version. Very keyboard-driven. Micks vocal is very very emotional and powerful, way more so than on the album version.

Just like Gimme Shelter in 69 and Dance Little Sister in 75, it's a wonder why they left out 100 Years Ago in 1973 - it would have been fantastic once they really got it together. Maybe because of the the difficult singing?...probably wore Jaggers voice out.

What are the other tunes that were butchered to death?

maybe he means the early bang versions of sway, the later ones were fine imho

One of my favorite Stones songs, just as Winter.
Sway live was a surprise but never has come near the fantastic original in my opinion

The live version was ok, but it didn't get the audience response that's why they dropped it...like the '72 U.S. Tour's Loving Cup, Ventilator Blues, Torn and Frayed...lack of audience response equals engery lull from the crowd and that means switch rework the setlist...

Incidently there is a studio outtake of this song with an extended guitar solo on the lead out....very nice.

I love that version on Ultimate Brussels Affair (The extra disc). It's as good, if not better, than the studio version.

Yes, taking that the Stones are foremost a performing band, when they say that some song "doesn't work out" that most probably has nothing to do with how good it sounds, or that they have difficulties in playing that (they have those sometimes with ANY song!). It is the audience response that matters.

But is just a shame that they already in 1970's were so consevative and looking for easy compromises and NOT instead tried to work HARDER the audiences - like thay once did - for example, in their first tours in the US and elsewhere. By the early 70's the Stones were already in that comfortable free ride, and started to to build their 'war horses' section...

By the way, the mentioning of the loud lead guitar in one of the takes of "100 Years Ago" (one of my all time favourite Stones songs; together with "Winter" a superb 'Two Micks go transcendental' colloboration) reminds me of the discussion we have of Andy Johns interview. I can see how ANGRY Keith might looked after hearing that and then goes to kicking Taylor out of the mixing room..."no use in studio", heh...

Of the two circulating live versions of this song, I think I like the second performance (Mannheim 9/3/73) the best. The Vienna version is nice and is a better sounding recording, but I think it was tighter and the playing was better on that particular song in Mannheim. Too bad the recording ain't all that great.

Wow, never heard someone mention this before. Sway and Moonlight Mile spring to mind as other examples of Two Micks etc. Do you think Shine a light qualifies as well? And how about Time waits for no one?

Marc and All,

That's why Jagger was so much more "pissed" that Taylor quit. Taylor & Jagger
were becoming much more of a writing team then Taylor pulled the rug out from
under him, Keith never held a grudge...

agreed, mick's singing is terrific on the live versions of "100 Years Ago." Particularly the "Mary and I..." line.

I have to think keith partly sabotaged this tune through lack of enthusiasm for playing it, since he wasn't very involved in writing it. "Fingerprint File" is another example. To me, I can hear mick forcing the energy somewhat on both tunes and feeling somewhat disappointed.
