Quotetreaclefingers Found some additional info on Rolling Stone: An interesting piece from 1969 - thanks! Generally, I wouldn't accuse much the Stones for trying intentionally to rip off blues dudes. I guess there was a lot of misunderstanding and confusion in regard to old pre-war blues songs at the time - who exactly owning the copyrights or do they belong to Public Domain. Th

Is there any particular gain the Stones might get with this new law? One thing came to my mind. Irony has been that the streaming business most likely also saved ABKCO. At least for Klein's compnay the recent years have been a goldmine - they particularly don't need to do anything - just have the Stones catalogue in online and collect the lion's share of the royalties.

I guess the Stones, like all the artists involved, be them rich or poor, old or young, are there just supporting a cause benefitting them all. The streaming probably saved record industry (from the threat of piratism) but the deal between these private enterprises like Spotify one one hand and Universal on the other was an awful one for artists. They just got a laughable, tiny amount of the cake,

Isn't "Can't Be Seen" the last Keith number we could call as a rocker as far as the Stones catalogue go? I agree, like many have noted, that there is some interesting musical ideas going on there. A rather surprising chord changes, and some extra melodical hooks. But over-all, mostly due to production, I think it pretty much sounds like a typical poppish AOR tune of the lat

Win the right games. That's what they say in Canada, and that's what they also do. Starting the games by three losses, but finishing them by three wins when games really mattered and against the strongest teams in tournament: Russia, USA and Finland. That's a helluva argument, and a well-deserved gold medal. Team Finland was a clear disappointment in play offs. Yeah, they did wi

Hmm... what's the wrong with other group that supposedly was stronger? All of them lost... So Finland has already won all the teams left (but all were tight games). Of them, Team USA was clearly the strongest, and it was a small miracle that Finland ended up winning that game. USA already beated up Canada badly, but Team Canada has already shown that anything can happen. I am sure they ar

QuoteStoneage Strange, we won gold in 1992... Oh yes you did. You won Finland in a final (5-2 if memory serves). But still that was a huge deal here in Finland, since it was our very first medal ever from world championship games (lots of fourth places along the years, though...). Silver medal also from Calgary 1988 Olympic games, and that was it... The idea of really winning something was just

So Finland won afterall Canada after penalties. This means that in order to Canada to make the quarterfinals either Germany or Latvia need to have a three points win as they will play against each other later today. Otherwise Canada will be out. So sharing points 2 vs. 1 would be ideal for both of them, as both teams would make quarterfinals. See what happens... Odd games, first Sweden making his

Interesting stuff here about the origin of the n-word line in "Sweet Black Angel". Everytime I hear the line, I cannot help but Agatha Christie comes to my mind, although I have never bothered to think that further. But yeah, there seems to be the counting out nursery rhyme behind there (the one Christie's famous book is based on). It looks like - Wiki says - that it derives from A

"Getting worse"? Aren't those always been as horrible as they ever can be... But as typical, I only watched the counting of points... so I only heard the winner.

Hmm.. that's a difficult question. Like Dandie above I think Mick has generally sounded good all along. His quality standard is a pretty high, altough there've been some lower periods - such as the barking period during the mid-80's and over-nasal singing during the 00's or so, but even within those periods he sounded brilliant occasionally.

But a brief comment to those talking about the commercial value of live albums back then. I think the only reason to relaese GOT LIVE IF YOU WANT IT! was a commercial concern. It was mainly targeted at US audiences, and as they still were the latest big pop phenomenon - that of British Invasion - with no any idea of future, it was important to milk out any cent out of it, while they still were ho

Quoteretired_dog I would not call it "rubbish" - it's more like punk 10 years before punk ever happened and it's no coincidence why this album, along with lots of their early studio output is held in high regard by some very famous punk musicians I personally know. What it lacks in musical finesse is more than made up by the sheer raw energy that comes through, and that'

There've been some sucking threads lately... not that our threads suck generally by nature, but people were using the old collection title as a nice excuse to construct personal favourite suckers from each decade.
