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. I imagine if someone set up a poll here for the average Stones fan (not the cheerleaders) ranking all Stones albums up to 1981, on average thi

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. A store owner did an unboxing on YouTube, and it's distinctly unimpressiv

"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.

Quoteslew I like the bass playing on Satisfaction so simple but very effective and really a very important part of the song. Agreed. There are a few Stones songs where the bass is a much more important component than usual in pop music, and Satisfaction is one of them.

Quotebam Quotelonglongwinter Keith is a conservative and so is Patti, he just knows better than to say it out loud. Funny thing is if Biden wins the taxes for the top earners will be near what they were when the Stones had to bail England. Mick is a more vocal liberal or at least he thinks he is because its hip but he too is pretty damm conservative with his business. Uh, the top tax rate will

Bill. Obviously losing the others meant a significant change, and not always for the better, but when Bill left the band changed in a fundamental way. From a technical standpoint Darryl is more than qualified, but since the beginning, the rhythm section has been the core of the band, and having one of its pillars be essentially a session player with no real creative input changes everything.

Wow, that is really interesting. Thanks so much for posting this! You can see how Pasche arrived at his final version by cleaning this one up and simplifying it, and it's clear how Braun ended up with his version starting from this as well.

QuoteGasLightStreet VOODOO easily could've been better by leaving the weak and bad songs off. Same thing with BRIDGES with less and BANG with less. I find things that are said about these "modern" Stones albums that are difficult to believe, like this: We went through a whole thing: Let's make 11, 12 tracks, the normal length of an album. When we did that, there was

QuoteGasLightStreetI've never been able to talk to Mick and ask him, "If you've done all this work to make these albums, how come you basically ignore them with the live shows?" Someone has asked him exactly that. I don't recall the details, but he said that the audiences lose interest when they play new tracks. For a performing artist, especially the front man of a ban

And it's really the right moment to get rid of it and make a nice load of money? I don't know about "garbage that'll be worthless in 10 years time", but I think

I read a biography of Gram some years ago. Yes, his family money gave him the ability to walk away from projects that no longer interested him, to the chagrin of his less wealthy collaborators. Also, while he was hanging out at Nellecote, Keith became so alarmed by his drug intake that he took him aside and expressed his concern. As the biographer noted, if Keith Richards thinks you're ov

QuoteStoneage Strange thing - Brian had big eye bags in his early twenties already. That is usually something you acquire with old age. I don't mean to be rude but I can't help noticing it. Yes, it's striking how much his appearance changed in the space of two or three years. I assume it was due to heavy drinking, which can cause that sort of bloat and puffiness.

Your poor ears. The exact opposite is true. Bill could play one note and give a song emotional depth. Darryl has no emotional depth in his bass playing. oh yeah like Sympathy, Live With Me, Fi

I'm glad this topic came up. When I was a teenager back in the 70s I heard Rory Gallagher's name quite a bit, but somehow I never got to know his music. I liked "What's Going On" from the Isle of Wight film quite a bit, and I'm looking forward to learning more.

QuoteCaptainCorella QuoteThe Joker The Stones are a business partnership between Mick and Keith, with Mick as CEO. The final decisions are made by Mick, with Keith having a say. The rest are employees, some of whom get a cut of the royalties, but who don’t really get a vote in the business decisions. That's simply wrong. The band members are equal partners.
