Yes, B&L is annoying !. It's over compressed & cut too loudly on vinyl also. ...and it's the only album in the Abbey Road set that wasn't remastered . Apparently they just used the original metalwork. I've wondered why it wasn't reworked . Maybe because it was such are recent release at the time... and the project personnel didn't want to tread on

I have two favourite pressings of Exile. One is my original 1972 "Artisan" pressing and the other a late 70's German Electrola labelled cut. The original rocks more than any other, with huge but natural dynamics and a sparkling top end . The Electrola mastering is softer and sweeter sounding...a bit less energy but allows you to hear into that murky mix and follow the low lev

Interesting points Tom. Yes I agree...the better the HiFi system the more obvious some of these variances are. (Indeed, the whole rationale of high compression brick wall mastering is to cater for the lowest common denominator of low quality and/or portable playback equipment.) I'd also agree that the original ABB release on vinyl sounded better than the CD... But the new Miles S

I like it . I hope it's on the album when that eventually surfaces . I might have to order the vinyl single just in case it isn't.

The bottom line with these is that , assuming they are the same as the ones in the boxed set, they are on the whole very good. Do the ones from the earlier albums in the series better or even equal the original analogue pressings ? No they don't ...but they are probably the best vinyl reissues of all these albums to have been commissioned in the digital age... and for the later reco

Quotekeithsman Yes it's a strong ballad, i love the honesty of the lyrics, bitter sweet bordering on unhealthy obsession, we've all been there at some point in a relationship and Keith has blown me away with this track, Just A Gift is also a stand out track for me, a song of longing and what might have been or could be. Crosseyed Heart just gets better each time i go back to it

Quote24FPS There's something wrong with the mix of GHS. It's not consistent. Some of the songs need a little sonic fleshing out. The whole sound of GHS is kind of veiled ...the sonic equivalent of those veiled faces on the cover/. Exile is murky...but you can somehow listen through the fog and into the mix . GHS just won't drop into focus in that same way. But after GHS, th

QuoteDandelionPowderman ...And I'm amongst those who find She's The Boss a pretty Stonesy album, especially after what they were experimenting with on Undercover. There are no reasons, imo, for songs like Lonely At The Top, 1/2 A Loaf, Running Out Of Luck, Hard Woman, Just Another Night or Secrets not to be on a Stones album. They practically are Stones tunes, structurally and attitude-

Quoteliddas Quotepaulspendel Keith Richards loves to play 'after the note'. Just like Sinatra liked to sing after the note. It's risky, cause it's got to be spot on. it's about milliseconds. He seems to lose this timing more and more. Ron Woods tries to patch/catch up, but the shift leaves him less time. Ron is a player who plays on the note but relies on his love for ben

Quote24FPS ... Some studio versions don't even exist live. They've never really played Jumping Jack Flash like they did on record. Same with Street Fighting Man. Both songs work great either way. Closest they got to doing SFM like the record was arguably that Stripped version when Keith tried the acoustic. The result was a kind of hybrid feel between the original and the mode

I can understand that many folks don't get the glorious, chaotic noise that is the Rolling Stones on stage ...but It's odd from someone who loves them on record. That tense timing and looseness is there on record too ...different day, different sounds & arrangement ...but just the same unique energy. Anybody could play the notes, live or on records, but not quite like them.
