Quotedeadegad Yes the area still has youthful vitality, but has changed and been cleaned up a bit. it's just been swallowed up by the NYU expansion, that's why it still seems youthful. A tourist attraction for newcomers to the city, basically.

interesting bit about those Replacements lyrics, ohno... I've listened to that song probably 500 times and could never figure out that line. Although I don't know how accurate that version is--I'm pretty sure it's "Box Tops video," for example.

so many comments on the aura around the album, so few on the tracks themselves... this is Wikipedia-disease, or is it Behind the Music? "Why is this album important?" "Because such and such happened after it was released." or, "Because Band X, Y, and Z later made albums that sounded like it."

I don't think the point should be what the albums "led to" or "influenced," but the music itself. Some Girls is a great album on its own merits.

I'm pretty sure that if you were to look at a cross-section of posts from about 3 years ago, you would find many citing a "Big 5" that included Some Girls. This sudden turnaround is very surprising--my guess is that it's a side-effect of the Exile-mania of the past few months.

Quotelatebloomer Mostly good review, thanks BBJ. I'm adding this book to my stack, hope to get to them all this summer. mostly negative, really, but perhaps the book is worth a read anyway.

can't remember who made this insight upthread, but it bears repeating, as I'd never heard it before in all the years of this endless and at times absurd "debate": that when the Stones brought on taylor, it was to replace brian, but that when they brought on wood, it was to replace taylor ... not brian. Fascinating to consider what might have been at that point, if they had sou

Quoteliddas What I call the "two-fingers-technique" is Ronnie's way of playing with his middle finger notes that normally are played with the ring finger. He does it all the time. It inevitably results in a slight bend of the note/bi-chord played with the index. Indeed the result can be stuttering at times, but greatly effective. As for the Slavic touches, if you li

Quoteliddas His "two finger" technique always creates unique voicings. He is able to add intensity and depth to the music (more than often with European/Slavic touches, rather than the overused "blue note" based cliches) only to kick the band in the but a sec later. can you expand on Wood's "two finger" technique? Where can we hear it? Is that how he do

I thought he was more than reserved on "Going Down," or less -- kind of out of it, though he did take a decent solo, better than ron's actually.

QuoteMax'sKansasCity I dont see or hear where Wyman added anything to Honky Tonk women... but I could be wrong, it is just a youtube crap video. I agree, I couldn't hear him at all on the Youtube ... and he appeared out of it, kind of staring off to the side, perhaps bc he couldn't hear himself. Was he turned up?

Quote71Tele I'm going to go out on a limb here and say I rather like the version of JJF played at this show. It's a slower tempo, yes, like the original record, and Ronnie is playing the organ or mellotron parts from the studio version. I think it's rather cool. I think he's been playing that part a long time, no? Maybe it's just coming through clearer with the smaller

great track, with a sense of mystery and longing to it. Achieves a more epic feeling than the writing of the song would suggest, through the performance and recording.

Quote2000 LYFH OK so that high pitched (bell) sound did come from Keith's guitar. I'm also interested in how he did this... no, there is also a bell being played, or a glockenspiel. I think Silver Dagger is describing keith's guitar tone as bell-like, but the high-pitched bell sound is from a bell.

I don't know, I've tried to listen to It's Hard a few times and can't get into it. It sounds awkward to me. I like Face Dances ... it's not The Who sound, but the songs are good.

I was reminded of them the other day when "Crazy on You" came on at the grocery store. Or maybe it was "Barracuda." Either way, I felt it was unnecessary to be subjected to the song again. Or to have any rock music playing at the grocery store, really.

I don't know what they're like at this stage, but if you like the Stones and the bad-boy image, you definitely might like them -- dark, moody but '60s-derived rock. Lot of VU influence. Many of their shows ended in riots in the '80s! "Head On" is typical of the sound, though maybe a little more Ramones-y than other songs. enjoy!
