Quote24FPS Quoteyearsinthemaking The Brussels version is one of the absolute highlights in the history of the Stones on stage. From the very first intro notes, Mick warming up on the Harmonica and says "we're very quick, aren't we" and then Keith slides his fingers down the guitar in a way I can't think of him doing again to kick off the actual song it's fantastic.

I agree with dcba. This is likely someone's personal 8mm film and obviously stored in great condition with the colors being just perfect. It's sad that today you could store more video on your phone than exists of the Stones prior to 1981 combined. I don't think the Dick Cavett crew would've been allowed to film the whole show. More likely than not they were invite

Popular culture references In music In 1980, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards wrote a song about Spider Sabich's death that was intended to be on the Rolling Stones album Emotional Rescue. The song, titled "Claudine," carried lyrics that painted a graphic picture of some of the more salacious aspects of the affair and killing. It was deemed too controversial and was removed, althou

It was recorded during that prolific Some girls period. Maybe they were thinking about putting it on ER as well as SG and failed both times. It's just my recollection from 1980. Not necessarily correct

I was listening to the Emotional Rescue album (quite underrated) and I was trying to remember what song was added when they decided at the last minute to leave off "Claudine"? I can remember some radio broadcast at the time saying that the Stones were worried about legal troubles from Claudine Longet but I don't recall the replacement song. My suspicion is "Indian Girl"

At the risk of offending some I'll be bluntly honest. The Stones are so far removed from making good music, live or in studio, that I wouldn't consider paying money to see them. There are far too many bands to see in clubs or on stage that are making good new music and playing their instruments well. Neither of which apply to the Stones of 2021. I would equate watching the Stones of

Very interesting article written by a very young Jon Landau. His insight into the Stones at such a young age as well of his knowledge and awareness of music at that moment in time is quite impressive. Also kind of funny that the review was 3-4 months after the release. I guess another time another place!!!

You know, when GHS came out I fooled myself in to thinking they would release the London show instead of Brussels again. Now I keep wasting brain matter hoping they will release the full Roundhouse show. Why do I even consider suck nonsense?

Interesting that you say that. I was driving the other day listening to something similar when "Let Me Down Slow" from A Bigger Bang came on and I had almost the exact opposite reaction. I honestly thought a high school garage band down the street could something this bad. The lyrics were forced and sophomoric. The singing was uninspired and the music was the best part of the song a

Quotesaltoftheearth Turning back to the thread I must say that I learned a lot. I Always thought the 1975 tour to be mediocre, to say the least. But now I listened to the first concerts of the tour, and they are really very good. For instance, they could have released a double album of the Boston shows, selecting the best version of each song from both Shows. Later on, it deteriorated, mainly b

QuotePaul Kersey The Toronto 17th June show is an outstanding performance and in great audio quality on bootleg. Absolutely. The Toronto show is outstanding. High energy and great performance with Mick being at the top of his game which could rarely be said about him later in the tour. The show was obviously recorded. Too bad the rest of the show (besides the bootleg) hasn't seen the l

The whole point of this thread is the discussion about the changing feel and performance of the '75 tour as it evolved from one of energy and excitement to lazy and sloppy. I would love for everyone to go listen to It's Only Rock and Roll and Fingerprint file on LYL both from June 17th in Toronto then listen to them on the LA Friday Vault release and see what the hell happened.

Gimme Shelter and Brown Sugar are perfect examples of where Billy Preston proves to be a horrific addition to the band. In ‘73 he’s in the background and does nothing ridiculous. In ‘75 he just adds silly, childish noises that are a huge distraction. I just think the tour went a little off the rails

I remember years ago reading in the “Encyclopedia of Rock” from the late 70’s describing Mick’s performance in ‘75 as a “parody of himself”. I think that’s a sad but accurate description of his stage performance

Quotecimaz In 1975 and 1976 the Stones went into some kind of useless Barnum on stage. Even if some shows of this era (NY and LA but not all of them) are still a pleasure to listen to. After The 1973 european Tour you had to wait until the 1978 US tour before they went back to something shorter, raw and essential. This is absolutely right. I think the tour started out as being about the music.

I agree with the Ollie Brown percussion nonsense. It's totally unnecessary and I think sometimes it's a distraction for Charlie. Was he just there to be Billy Preston's companion for the tour. IFor that matter Billy Preston becomes more a musical liability as well. In 1973 I think he was more professional and played more to the Stones needs and can even be an interesting change

The entire June 17th Toronto show was great and it was only 11 nights into the tour. Other than NYC I'm not overly familiar with the mid tour shows before the LA shows. When did things change? Mick was clearly not himself later on singing stupid lyrics like "don't want no Jews hanging round" on Tumbling Dice and just sloppy uninteresting singing. Maybe his drug of choice w

My opinion of the 1975 Tour is largely one of great promise that turned to failure. When the tour started in Baton Rouge they were energetic and carried on a performance that rivaled their 1973 tour (with early show mistakes). The songs were high octane. Mick sang well and the band was playing hard and fast. This carried on early in the tour as you can hear in the songs from Toronto in mid Ju
