My first concert was in 1978; stadium show. I was high up in the stands at about the 50 yard line on Keith's side. Being my first big concert I didn't have anything to compare it to, but I thought it sounded pretty decent. Volume was not as strong as in later years. When they first came on, I had no clue what the first song was due to the screaming and cheering. Didn't know it was

QuoteTheflyingDutchman '72 was a very powerful tour. It was indeed. But I gotta say the official audio release of the Ladies and Gentlemen soundtrack should have sounded way better with today's technology.. Maybe it's just me but to my ears it just sounds thin and trashy. It should at least sound as good as Ya Yas. To my ears it doesn't. I like the performances but the soun

QuoteDandelionPowderman QuoteMeise I created my own HONK incl. the same songs and unreleased live versions (found them on youtube). It took me about an hour, and I spent nothing but time and power for my notebook ... I'm a huge and die-hard Stones fan, but folks: who really needs that compilation with the same contents over and over again? If it was for a poor band's money I'd u

Quotemasseywinos I personally really like the live tracks with the exception of Under My Thumb. I love Dead Flowers the Paisley guitar is awesome. I actually like UMT a lot better than I thought I would as I LOVE the ferocious 1981 versions, but it came out pretty good, rocks more than I thought it would. If I had my way the professional backup vocals on LSTNT and SAR would be turned down a b

Too fast? Not so much these days. They tend to stick closer to the studio versions with few exceptions. Now back in the seventies - 1981-82; yes they often went frantic on stage but I liked that energy. Having become a fan back in those days, now when they do them at the "correct" tempo, I often think they sound too slow even though they're not.

Being that I already have everything, I don't need Honk. But I did buy the digital downloads of the live cuts, except for the ones with guest stars - I don't like guest stars - and I gotta say, those cuts are way better than I expected them to be. Mr. D is awesome.

Unless it's my setup, it sounds like in way too many places, Ronnie is too loud and Keith is too low; especially at times when Keith's guitar should be prominent. Is it just me or does anyone else hear it that way? the problem with the mix is that the organ is way t

How to pick? That's one song that's almost always great. I'm partial to Ya Ya's as it's the one that hit me first. Tokyo 1990 is very good. As for more recent ones, Havana Moon is very good. there's just too many.....

QuoteGasLightStreet QuoteRedhotcarpet QuoteDoxa QuoteGasLightStreet It started, obviously, in 1989 with SFTD because Mick wanted them to sound like the records. Here's Keith with that as well: Over the years, you develop a simplified road version of a song that you get used to. But this time, we thought, Let's go back and listen very carefully to the records to find what we were orig

QuoteBungo I was watching the Sweet Summer Sun / Hyde Park show the other day and it struck me how retarded a song like Sympathy For The Devil has become over the years compared to the amazing versions heard on Get Yer Ya Yas Out. Why don't they just play it like that? 2 guitars, drums and bass. And the guitar lines they play in these current versions are just childish and un-musical compare

QuoteTheflyingDutchman Quotepowerage78 Nothing is better than GYYYOUT ! The only significant difference between Ya ya's and LyL is the lead guitarist, and Billy Preston of course. I somewhat disagree with that. To me it was a very different sound. The guitars were much more distorted and raunchy, and Mick's vocal style had changed quite a bit. It seemed a bit looser and sloppier

As we all say, judgments are hard from a little video device but the clips I've watched sound really good. The band sounds tight and even the numbers they haven't done in ages sound good. When was the last time they did Shattered? I realize they're playing to an older crowd these days but the audience is what bugs me in these clips. The Rolling Freaking Stones are playing right in

Just checked out a video of Neighbours. Gotta admit I was almost afraid to, having remembered how ferocious it was in 1981. But wow, I was quite impressed. They really rocked it. Not as frantic as 1981 but still pretty hot and lot of good guitar from Keith and Ronnie. They seem to be in better shape than on the first leg of this tour! Still capable of surprising us a bit!

Just a thought - It would be something if a 2019 US tour were billed as their last, as it would the 50th anniversary of the legendary 1969 tour. I don't think the Stones would want to bill it that way though.

Quotemosthigh If you made minimum wage in the US in 1969, it was $1.30 an hour. Now its roughly $10 - $11 an hour. In '69 you had to work about 6.5 hours to afford a top tier ticket. ($8.50) Now, Lucky Dips aside, it would be at least 10 hours of wages to afford even a nosebleed, never mind Gold Pits and the like. It's never been just about the workingman, and many/most of them

Why do we even have a rehearsal thread at this point? It was fun back when people used to be able to congregate outside and hear what they were trying out different. Apparently no one gets that close anymore.
