Before the 1st lockdown, Steve Jordan and his wife Meegan Voss reportedly had a new album by their group The Verbs ready for release, to be entitled "Garage Sale". They even got so far as to put out a single. Since then, Jordan has put out an album with Mix Master Mike and an album he produced for Bettye LaVette on their own label. Here's hoping that the new The Verbs is still

The post-reunion albums from the late 80s onwards probably are not that well-represented either, given they only played a few from each of these except "Steel Wheels" on each respective tour. However, the real thing to bemoan, if you want to do such a thing, was the long break without an album's worth of new material between "A Bigger Bang" and "Blue and Lonesome

From back in my mixtaper days when I used to make tapes for the car, I still have quite a few Maxell, TDK, BASF, Sony, etc tapes. I am sure there are enthusiasts out there who would like to record over them. Some of those tapes have previously been subjected to heat while located in parked cars in the summer decades ago. I just cannot tell which ones. Some haven't. We had an old car with

This has always been a nice forum but my participation on here has not helped influencing the band in producing any further new material than they would have done otherwise. I was here before "A Bigger Bang" came out. They could have put out so much more new material if they had actually wanted to. But they do not. They very much have got their finger on the pulse of the market. And the

Some 15 years back or so, I bought the CD version of "40 Licks" online for $10 when it was just about to switch distributors from the one owning disc 1 to the one on disc 2. Also, it was the 1st time that I got any of these songs. There's hardly been a purchase with a higher value-to-money ratio. The reissue looks as solid a set as "40 Licks" has always been.

It was a marketing decision, and an obvious choice at that, why the songs from the archives were put out as bonus tracks for expanded reissues: the ever so elusive "casual fans" are already familiar with the good reputation of the well-known catalogue albums, and trying to get them to buy something is the reason for creating interesting stuff to lure in the real fans so they will create

Thanks for the beautiful picture. Given the length of this thread and the fact that it was created in 2015 because of the high number of Taylor threads in earlier years made it necessary to group all those discussions into one place, I get the feeling that Taylor would have sold quite a few units of solo albums from the mid-00s through the 2010s, if he had chosen to record new material during

Quotedmay I've enjoyed much of his music from the 1960s onward. Some of his latest albums - Praise and Blame, Spirit In The Room, Long Lost Suitcase, Surrounded By Time - are well worth discovering. Add to that his album with Jools Holland on which he fronts the Rhythm N Blues Orchestra.

QuoteJavadave Los Lobos (1973) Both still recording and performing. Well, the Lobos were led by Francisco "Frank" Gonzalez in the beginning, who was out of the band even before their 1st record in the 70s. He is sadly no longer with us since last year. But his Veracruz harp solo record from the 2010s titled "The Gift / El Regalo" is excellent.

Somebody on this very board wrote years ago that Ron Wood had recorded 3 unreleased albums during the 90s. I don't know if this is just a rumour or hubris or if there is something to it. But if there were indeed recordings from this era, I'd sure love to listen them, on the strength of "Slide on This" and "Not For Beginners" alone.

Bill Wyman should have done "Si, si je suis un Rockstar" with the Stones, and sung it himself as he was the band's 3rd lead vocalist. This is the best disco song to come from somebody in the Stones camp. His bass playing would not be as low in the mix then as it is on the solo track it actually is.

Keith played guitar on this track by Canadian/Somalian artist K'naan, who is considered by most as a hip-hop artist a/k/a rapper: The connection there is probably Manny Marroquin who mixed both K'naan's album and the Stones' "Doom and Gloom". It would have been awesome had the Stones done a whole album with Marroquin.

"Far out!" is probably the only appropriate comment here. From the 50s onwards, whole generations of people have been raised with fantasies of outerspace and space travel. It is a myth that helped develop a lot of more or less useful stuff, yet as a goal, seems particularly unrewarding at this stage, given the risks and expenses involved, unless of course, your ego yearns for prestig

I can imagine Keith guesting on a U2 song. "Joy", the duet of Mick Jagger and Bono was quite enjoyable, too. But Edge guesting on a Keith Richards solo track could be hit or miss.

The lack of new material may not be helping their legacy to the same extent that Billy Joel's lack of new material is not helping his legacy in the long run, but it sure is keeping production costs down. With Promopub BV, they are their own label after all, so that alone must amount to something. In short: if the desire to write and record new music isn't there, then why should they?

I'm just listening to "You Got It Made" for the very first time, and I must say that this is one of Keith's best songs he sang for the Stones. Here's hoping the finished version (if there is one) gets an official release rather sooner than later because it's great. VL was my introduction to this band, and I wouldn't change it.

Zentgraf - if it wasn´t for the Stones taking him on the road in 2013/14 or mentioning him in streams or rereleases, he had six guest appearances on stage since 2015 - what a waste of talent. Sad.

They don't need that. They must have enough songs if Jagger can easily give one away to Brad Paisley of all people (Drive of Shame). It's just that they just don't believe in these songs. But authors are often the worst judges of their own work, or so the saying goes.

It's a pretty good track. It'S also good to know that they've got some good stuff on their hands already that they can craft a new album out of. I've got the CD single. I wish there was a b-side, maybe because I'm always greedy for new music. But I understand why there isn't one. Finishing this song happened under conditions with a lot of constraints, after all.

Did you guys know that an uncredited Ry Cooder plays his signature electric guitar somewhere deeper in the mix in the 2nd half of "Kokomo"? It's not a bad song at all even though this is not the Kokomo in Indiana. Might as well have been Cocomo. That would have been a little more authentic ;-)
