I almost like Cried Out better than Laugh. It feels a little slinkier and I love that smoky piano playing along with the guitar. They're both good, and certainly intimately related.

I have had some pretty knowledgeable people argue that Sway was recorded in standard, but to my ears (and hands) I definitely hear open G, likewise when Keith played in in o5-06 13-14. And I'm Going Down is a good one I forgot, thanks JMARCOU

Oh yes, and Can't You Hear Me Knocking and (I think) Sway.

Hey MadMax. Yes, Soul Survivor is in open G. You Got Me Rocking is another one. I believe Highwire and It Won't Take Long are as well. There's probably more we're both forgetting.

Agreed, RobertJohnson, this is one of their best live versions of Beast. Unfortunately, this mix does it no justice, nor does it any of the songs. To echo another comment, and I also can't believe I am saying this, but Chuck is TOO low in the mix. Especially on Heartbreaker. Is this some kind of revenge for him being all in our faces on San Jose? While I am glad to have an official rel

Not to mention the creative burnout. McCartney is still turning out some decent stuff (I thought Egpyt Station was just so-so, but I really liked New), but he's one guy, while the Stones are a band and their music is dependent on that collective element to come together. Mick seems to be the only one who actively writes, and I am sure he comes up with some nice things here and there, his sol

I have a feeling the sound quality won't be much of an issue. Some may recall that the performance of "I Go Wild" from that show was used as a b-side (I can't remember which single) back in the 90's and the recording sounded much different than the hollow, kind of muffled sound of the official broadcast and the bootlegs. It had a fatter, more solid sound, which is what I

One of my favorite bands ever. They're up there with the Stones for me. So many amazing albums, so much originality and artistic integrity. They have a new 9 cd Live At The BBC box set coming out next month that I can't wait for. Also, they were known Stones lovers. Peter Buck very much emulated Keith's essence without ever trying to sound like him. He knew when to play and when

Blech. That was unnecessary. Christ, the production makes it sound like it was recorded in 1991 (and no, that's not a good thing).

This is great news! I loved the Miami show as it was sort of my first Stones show (saw it on PPV) so I have wonderful memories of it. Plus it had a killer setlist.

I would like another release that was a genuine surprise, like the "Light The Fuse" release. While I have loved all of the FTV offerings, have been somewhat expected due to having already been circulated as bootlegs or fans at least having prior knowledge of the shows being professionally documented. That's what made 2005 special, IMO, is that it was a very unexpected, out of th

My thoughts on first couple of listens (I only listened digitally on Spotify). I will start the with CONS. -Ronnie is definitely MIA through most of it. His playing isn't BAD necessarily, but it feels barely there and a bit off the mark when it is. As usual, he seems to come alive for "Before They Make Me Run", but for much of it it sounds like he's nervously auditionin

True.Good points. MelBelli. 89-90 he was definitely (IMO) trying to live up to his now-established "guitar god" reputation and play more like the typical soloist of that era (one needs only to listen to his solos on "Sympathy" from that period to hear this). I imagine the Music Man guitars were probably more conducive to that style of playing though, to be frank, he is simply

Sorry if this topic has been brought up before, but I have been curious for a while about Keith's relationship to these guitars. I recall him using them on the late 80's Winos tours and then quite heavily on the Steel Wheels tour. He would also rave about how great they were in interviews, saying something to the effect of how he had not connected so much with a guitar since the Telecas

It's the Beatles' masterpiece, their tour de force. That said, it's not my personal favorite Beatles record. That would be the White Album.

Quotelaertisflash "That he's not as bad as the mummy from the 2012 New Jersey Pay per View is the best compliment to give". You are clearly exaggerating on that, 24FPS... I actually thought he was fine on that pay per view show. Now when I saw him at Churchill Downs in 2006. Jesus that was sad. He looked like a homeless man who'd wandered in off the street and they just h

I had previously heard of this book, and yesterday I happened upon it at the library by my house. Anyone know if it's worth a read? I've just read to many books on the band already and figured I wouldn't bother if it didn't at least have a new thing or two to offer. (note: I haven't really read any books that cover the post-Wyman era, so if there's some stuff there a

God what a tour. The last truly great one they will ever do (though they still have great shows to offer us). I would LOVE it if either (preferrably) a club or an arena show from this tour got a From The Vault release in its entirety. I know we're already getting a 99 show coming up soon and fans are clamoring for older stuff (as am I), but I hope the Licks tour is slated for eventual releas

So I was thinking how camera phones and such were not nearly as prominent 10 or 15 years ago as they are now, but I wanted to see what I could find from the Licks tour. So I did a YouTube search for "Stones live 2002" and found this wonderful show from the Oakland Arena. I had heard it before (had a bootleg of it), but it really made me remember how damn GOOD they were during that tour.

Quoteslewan I'm pretty sure that Jagger studies the audicene reactions to every move he makes/has made I remember reading an interview w/Mick around the halfway point of the No Security tour where he said he could see the blank expressions on the faces of the audience when they would do lesser-known songs (I remember how the tour began with songs like Memory Motel, Undercover, and Sweet Vi

Man, even that Tumbling Dice (a song I am usually bored with these days) just POPS with energy. Columbus 99 was my second favorite Stones show ever (Nashville 97 remains my favorite, though it was also my very first Stones show).

Wow, they sound surprisingly great here. They seem to have actually upped the tempo on the warhorses, and Miss You is more funky and less boring than it has been on recent tours.
