QuoteKennedy I've never seen good photos from the Alpine Valley shows. Were they able to get the whole Steel Wheels stage set up there? No, they used parts of it but the actual stage was much too tall and wide. They had runways going to each side and then forward. Mick used the stage left riser, for example, rather than top of the tower for Sympathy. The stage was pretty crowded with the

QuoteFoolToCry The acustic guitar sounds like a Mick overdub from 2020.... ...as does the vocal. You can hear a bit of 1974 Mick underneath.

My last show was August 5 in Jersey as well. I left a couple days later and ended up trapped in the Newark Airport for THIRTY HOURS! A memorable trip to say the least.

From a distance the two flags could be confused. Responsible adults, however, would make sure before going into full-on rage harpie mode. Not here, not now. We have people in the US now who ignorantly attempt to destroy the lives of others because of some perceived offense and if called out in error claim it doesn't matter because they meant well. They are ruining everything they touch becau

Well, I somewhat answered my own questions after viewing this thread: If this is correct it shows only 6-7 of the 18 songs on EOMS have their origin in Nell Cote. "Loving Cup" predates Nell Cote. Any others? I know "Tumbling Dice" existed in a formative version before Nell Cote but was entirely reworked, apparently in LA.

If this information is on this site and I overlooked it, please forgive me...BUT... Is there a definitive resource for: 1. Which Exile' songs pre-date Nell Cote. Like "Loving Cup" which is said to pre-date to the Let It Bleed sessions. 2. Which Exile' songs were mostly formed, written and recorded at Nell Cote. 3. Which Exile' songs were little

If the "pointless" songs had been left off the ardent completists would be raging that the collection short changed the collector. There's no way to win with stuff like this.

Anybody fortunate to have seen Rory Gallagher can attest to his tremendous skill, energy and charisma. There's no way the Stones would have had a member that would overshadow both the guitarist AND the front man.

At my wake I've left instructions to provide copious amounts of booze and play "Exile'" straight through, steadily increasing the volume, so that the finale, "Soul Survivor," shakes the neighborhood. If I don't wake up it was still worth a shot.

I was at the PBS taping. We got there at 5pm from Michigan and no one was around. We came back at 7pm and there was about 400 people in line. TV studios are tiny so it didn't look good. Just as we were getting close they cut off the entry. After all the bitching and screaming died down and most people left I cornered a producer and told him we'd come four hours and, "Was there, per

...forgive me. I tried searching for this using keywords but I was flung far asunder. Are there TWO DIFFERENT recent half-speed remasters of Exile'? I sent away for one thinking it was the excellent Abbey Road cut I'd heard at a friend's house but it appears I may have actually ordered a UNI version? Are there two? Can anyone comment on the sound of either - or both? Thank you.

This is a nice, tight version of the movie without the interviews or cutaways to the studio. Shaves of nearly a half hour and it's much more enjoyable. It's interesting because after this Floyd essentially created in anonymity. No album photos, blurry presence when performing live. For a lot of people this movie shows them the band for perhaps the first time.

"Rock and Roll Animal" introduced a new generation of fans to Lou Reed. Using my friends and me as anecdotal examples we went nuts for that "Intro/Sweet Jane" and a tape of the album was the soundtrack to many a roadtrip or Friday night booze cruise. We knew Lou from "Walk On the Wildside" which was a cool song but too gay for a bunch of post-adolescent Midwest kids.

QuoteGasLightStreet Quotepadre69 I just compared the 2010 vinyl to my Artisian version and I actually like the 2010 more. Doesn’t sound brickwalled to my ears, nut I hear bass and piano better, which is nice. Because vinyl can't be brickwalled. All digital formats of the LP are brickwalled. I sold my 2010 version precisely because it WAS brick-walled. Especially noticeable in the lack of

We can listen to any CD in our collection or watch any video we wish at anytime. The idea of these "watch parties" is to maintain a sense of community. I find it very thoughtful.

AC/DC and the Stones share a lot of the same world traveled and experienced crew members which is one reason why you never see them on the road at the same time. I'm guessing that if AC/DC tours their homeland in the fall theyll come stateside next year. Hope springs eternal.

Well, that was interesting. I was trying for Detroit and Cleveland LDs via two different browsers. Everytime I'd try to click through to Cleveland it would send me to Detroit where it said I was already in line. Glanced over here after I was done with Detroit and realized something was cocked up. Went back and waited and sure enough Cleveland reappeared correctly, I got right though and BAM!

You're only angling for a better view of the video screens unless you're field level between the stage and the fifty yard line. Been there, done that. Don't need to pay $500+ to do it again. My Detroit tickets are on the Moon and my Cleveland tickets are on Mars. Maybe the upgrade gods will bless us, especially in Cleveland.

QuoteVicJagger Any idea which pre-sale (Fan Club or Amex)offers best tix or both the same? In my experience the two are very close to each other. Think of the top and bottom of a five row portion of a section. AMEX holders notwithstanding, the less expensive stuff goes first. The cheapest seats are not available via AMEX presales.
