I've probably said this already, but a reprint of this would make a great Record Store Day item. It's even got the ideal serial number prefix.

QuoteCongratulations Quote24FPS Keith seems to have understood how good Bill was. Really? I've always thought that Keith has underplayed Bill's importance, even when he was still in the band. Compare how often Keith praised Charlie to how little he's said anything good about Bill. There's a clip of Keith from a few years ago in which he is extremely complimentary regardi

QuoteTheGreek Quotedcba if you read Chet Flippo's book about the 75-81 years you'll notice Wenner and his rag constantly stabbed the band in the back. Jagger even called him a "@#$%&". I guess they made amends for the (wonderful) 1995 MJ interview led by Wenner. So true Yeah, I can't say I have a high opinion of Wenner as a journalist, but he is pr

QuoteFP Hard to tell the truth really between what Mick and Keith both day, adds to the confusion From what I've seen over the years, while Mick is often reluctant to say anything substantive in interviews, when he does cough up information it's generally pretty close to what actually happened. My impression is that Keith is only reliable in a general sense. If he describes a fist

QuoteHairball I don't recall there ever being "The New Dick Van Dyke" show back in '74...it must have been cancelled as soon as it aired. I do remember Medical Center though.... It was syndicated, not network, and only ran for a couple of seasons. He played a talk show host in Arizona, if I recall correctly. It wasn't bad, but nothing can compare to the greatness of t

Quotetreaclefingers Quotestonesstein Quotetreaclefingers but I will say I had my sights set on an RSD for about $350 on Ebay about 12 years ago but I let it go. It was hideous, fair condition, grimy looking. So I bought I fake one for $25, pristine new condition. Saddest vinyl mistake I ever made. Treacle, there's a few real RSD-1s up on eBay these days, so you can still join the cl

Quotevertigojoe QuoteTheflyingDutchman QuoteDoxa It would be interesting to know how seriously the Stones were actually thinking about calling it quits then, or how seriously they were thinking that they might do something again in some day. Around that time Keith started doing his memoir, and was, at least according to Jordan, thinking about retirement. - Doxa Nobody outsmarts Mick Jagg

I know that this was available on bootleg back in the 1970s, because I saw a copy. I've always wondered what a Stones cover of "Love Potion No. 9" would sound like. It's kind of puzzling that it isn't more widely available. I would have thought that once something was bootlegged there would be no way of putting the toothpaste back in the tube.

QuoteRocktiludrop To my ears it's not so much when did it peak so much as when did it become too overbearing on albums, in the 60s 70s early 80s it meshed with the music, then it started to stand out from the music. Somebody on this forum once observed that his voice has a timbre that makes it audible even if it's low in the mix. That quality served the Stones' recordings well un

QuoteHairball Quotedoitywoik Listening to it again brings me back to earth and makes me admit that the album simply isn't that good. LOL As a whole no it isn't, and most people would agree, but there are definitely a couple of decent tunes.

The links to cdnow.com are broken. That makes me feel really old, not because CDNOW no longer exists, but because it has been gone so long that Amazon no longer bothers maintaining the domain to redirect to amazon.com.

I imagine that their name at least will be remembered for a long time to come. Every history course covering the second half of the 20th Century will at least mention the youth culture explosion of the time and its pop music scene, and name check the Beatles and the Stones.

QuoteDandelionPowderman QuoteDiamondDog7 Another thing that wasn't cool about L&G: There's a difference between the audio AND the video! You can see this clearly during HAPPY. Especially the vocals. You can see Mick NOT sing in the mic at the end, but you hear him anyway! That doesn't add up. They filmed several shows and used clips from at least two of the Fort Wort

QuoteFather Ted Yep it's been suggested before that they're keeping back the good stuff for their retirement fund. If you slowly drip-feed this stuff out over multiple generations, you get a nice little cash-cow for your descendants too. Could be, but as has been pointed out, the market for archival releases is old guys. I just can't imagine that many people in 2045 caring one

Quotedmay You get my point. Brian was the catalyst that led to creation of The Rolling Stones, IMHO, when he connected with Mick and Keith. Mick and Keith were in other bands, true, but would those bands have become the equivalent juggernaut that is The Rolling Stones today or just another memory of the English music scene in the early/mid 1960s and the bands and performers around London who were

"All Meat Music" was my first bootleg. It's an audience recording, and the sound quality is pretty awful, but it was a great show. It's also a document of a kind of interesting transitional moment, between the '72 US tour and the '73 European tour.

QuoteDrPete Not that I need a 10th copy of it but on ebay its being sold for 300-500$. What am I missing? Why so expensive? Apparently only 1000 are being pressed, and each one is unique in that it's swirled color vinyl with the colors added by hand. Other than that there is nothing different about the package.

"having created the most famous logo in the world" He wouldn't be the first artist to try to steal credit, but I'm surprised that a high profile news outlet would accept his claims without even a cursory Google search. Very strange that anyone would confuse a sleeve design that is obviously a riff on the theme of the logo with the design of the logo itself.
