More love for Hyde Park--between this show and the satellite feed of the Glastonbury set, we've got two Stones shows for the ages. Even compared to the shows from late 2012, with all the guest acts, the last three shows in the UK simply soared above the others. The band was ragged at times, as always--come on, these guys are in their 70s!!!--but there's no way you can listen to these ve

Fells Point is a must--the harbor just east of the main harbor. One of the country's great record stores, Soundgarden, is there. All kinds of rare stuff. And there's a great old bar two blocks from there, the Cat's Eye, that used to be owned by a crazed old motorcycle gang dude, now departed. All his crap hangs around the bar and a lot of John Waters' film crew standbys come a

No contest. "Jumping Jack Flash" in Scorcese's Mean Streets. Charlie (Harvey Keitel), watches glumly as a drunken Johnny Boy (Robert DeNiro) sweeps into Tony's bar with two Village babes on his arms. Charlie: "Thank you, Lord, for opening my eyes. You talk about penance and you send this through the door. Well we play by your rules, don't we." Cue in Ke

About time that Abcko released the concerts recorded during the 1972 tour. I was at the first evening show in Philly in 1972 when the boys came back for the encore with Stevie Wonder and did Satisfaction and Uptight, and when they were done, the announcer came on and said the show had been recorded for a live LP. We heard later that the show was deep-sixed because it was caught up in the l

Any verdicts on this line of replicas of the London/Abkco LPs? I picked up copies of Beggars Banquet and Let it Bleed and the kits are quite nice--Bleed has a miniature version of the pink LP sleeve with credits. Beggars is a gatefold LP sleeve replica. The music is the remastered Abkco mix, which is quite fine compared to the old mixes. Anybody heard Aftermath, Buttons or the early R&B L

I'm long gone from Philly, though I saw the Stones there in 72 and came back to see them there in Oct. 2005. But I did go to the Tower a lot in the early 70s--saw Springsteen there several times and he burned the place down...figuratively...

great to see this thread and the love for the great Elias McDaniel! I had the privilege of meeting Bo twice, the first when he opened for the Clash in 1978 (I hung backstage w Bo, Strummer and Mick Jones--one of the highlights of me life), and the second, when he sat down beside me at a pub off Hollywood Boulevard (was filming a vampire movie!) and regaled me with tales from the old days.

Oh man, you guys are missing the all-time music soundtrack, classic, Scorcese's "Mean Streets," which includes Stones classics "Tell Me" and "Jumping Jack Flash." Scorcese said recently he almost was unable to release the film because he wanted the Stones songs included in the backing tracks and had to pay so much to get them. The movie starts out with Har

Any of you guys happen to record Monday's live webcast from the Letterman site? If so, I'd really appreciate it if you could post the show--or at least trade with me for another EC live show. Any takers? thanks....

Damn, Urban! I cant get over how great this Oakland 69 radio show is! Jagger was on fire, Keith was a riff machine, Charlie was a pile driver and Taylor was unstoppable. No self-respecting Stone junkie can complete a collection without these 9 tracks! You're the king, Urban!
