This caught my attention: One song the band seems to have dropped from its set since the tour started up again is “Brown Sugar,” the Stones’ gleefully problematic early-’70s smash that opens on a “Gold coast slave ship bound for cotton fields.” “You picked up on that, huh?” Richards said when asked why they’re not playing the tune. “I don’t know. I’m trying to figure out with the sisters qu

Dandelion - I like how the chorus resolves differently each time.

Hey everyone. I'm not super-active here, but I just got an alert that someone had uploaded this. Apologies if it's a repost, but nothing came up when I searched. Very cool to see anything from the '70 tour.

It's weird watching early footage of the band, with Bill frequently smiling, singing backup, and dare I say - animated. To me, his playing was a bit more adventurous during the Jones years. Eventually he stopped asserting himself - for a variety of reasons - and his influence on the band's sound diminished. Then you've got Keith, Mick T, and Wood all obviously contributing

Great feed - even though Pancho is closer to the Andes than he is the stage.

QuoteDandelionPowderman My main gripe with this show (and with most of the 1971 shows I've heard) is that Keith and Taylor are very sloppy with their choice of sound. That destroys it for me. That is even worse on the Marquee show, though. Taylor's spiky, thin sound on JJF. Keith's too clean sound in places. Doesn't work for me. Yeah Keith's tone has none of the

Good to have Leeds in stereo, but I'm not too fond of the way a lot of these vault shows have been mixed. Too much fake reverb on everything. Maybe Clearmountain is attempting to restore some "venue ambience" to the recordings, but I prefer the dry sound of the boots. Leeds and the Marquee both seem like "off" gigs for Keith. The Roundhouse stuff was a revelation.

Quote71Tele I love the murky mash of Exile. LIB is a bit clinical sounding to me, almost as if solid state amps were being used (although I know that wasn't the case). I think that actually WAS the case. Lots of solid state Voxes and Triumph amps all over Beggars and LIB. Brittle, bright, and unforgiving. From Muscle Shoals on, it's a mix of Fenders and Ampegs. Pretty much all &qu

I have the 9/16/89 Raleigh show on two cassettes. It's a complete audience recording. I have no means to transfer it at the moment, but hopefully eventually.

Some nice stuff in this thread. My band is here: motelglory.bandcamp.com If you dig the Replacements, early Drive-by-Truckers, give us a peek.

QuoteMarkSchneider When Taylor is relaxed and confident... we get this! Let him play more then! Arrangement is fine but the tempo is too rushed. Charlie needs to channel his older, weary, 30-yr-old self.

Nice. Is this the earliest Jagger falsetto then?
