Was fortunate to be at the LA club show at Echoplex in 2013 (I think) with Mick Taylor. That was the best version for me.

Oakland '69 from 'Liv'R Than You'll Ever Be.'

To give some idea of the power of that particular rendition, consider that Mick himself told the crowd following the song, 'Got right carried away with it!'

Out of those versions that I have heard, I do so much agree with this earlier post!

It's interesting to see so many '78 versions mentioned. Because Taylor ruled with that song. I don't think he EVER hit a bad notes in all those solos.
It just goes to show though, that no song by the Stones is carried by one member only.

They took the song a step further with the dynamics in 1978, mainly because of what Mick and Keith did. The song got more interesting with the rhythm blues licks and Mick going berzerk toward the end, imo. Charlie followed. Great stuff!

Mac added a nice touch to it also.

This is one song where MT versions always shine the brightest .

he never lost taste and control with his slide playing ...in contrast with some of his over the top noodling on other stuff live.

Right. It was Jagger and Keith who did it. Keith started adding the sus4 on the D chord a lot; which he didn't do earlier on. And Jagger obviously tailored the setlist around the trends, but IMo was wise to see how Punkrock "love in Vain" really is.

Leeds 1971 (best solo ever)
Roundhouse 1971 (very good licks too, and a furious Jagger)
Stripped (i wish the Tokyo sessions could see the light of day...)

Really? You mean the "Welcome to NY" version? To me it sounds soulless and tired... like a band exhausted after weeks of touring and dying to go home.

The Ladies and Gentlemen one is the best.The band is great and Taylor’s song ending solo is one of the greatest in rock.No other version comes close .

Can anyone transcript what Keith and Ronnie saiys when they re-start Love in Vain in Stripped 1996 album?

TIA

I *think* Keith is saying that he didn’t get the right arpeggio, but he (purposefully?) butchers the word. Some kind of inside joke with Ronnie, I’m guessing.

Favorite version of "Love in Vain" by The Rolling Sones?

All of them.

Keith stutters the word and then Ronnie says "Arthur?", possibly a reference to the Dudley Moore character as I recall reading somewhere.

There's probably some bootleg that beats ya ya's but I haven't heard it. Especially with the slomo Maysles video.

I was wondering about that one. Releasing that show would certainly help move some units

Some Girls Live in Texas...It's a great hybrid of so many things. blues, country, rock; it's got a unique feel like no other.

Not sure what your version sounds like, mine has the best guitar solo MT has ever done!

Anyway I didn't say which version, '72 is how they do it best, I'll have to try to decipher where mine is from (I sorted mine years ago by years but failed to put locations at that time). Still Welcome to NY version is fantastic.

I have to agree with this sentiment. It is a breathtaking performance by MT (in spite of the band somehow skipping a beat toward the end).

I also love the "Liver" version and Ya Yas.
