Aside from Super 8 and Hope the High Road theres not many upbeat songs. I'm also an Isbell fan. He's quite a good guitar player, writes lyrics as well as any singer-songwriter, and his band (

QuoteErik_Snow For the life of me, I can't understand why anybody would want a 1989->2019 recording. There are so many great sounding AUD and SBD recordings from those years available easily for any human being with a slight of interest. I don't have any interest in those years, yet I got plenty of downlaods and bootlegs. And as legendary Leonard Keringer mentioned once; it's

QuoteChacho I was lucky to have been able to attend this concert. I would rate it as my second best Rolling Stones concert, the first being at Denver Coliseum, Friday, June 16, 1972. My viewing position was at the left corner of the stage about 30 people deep into the crowd, on the field. I am going to view that video again in the remote possibility of getting to see what I looked like in t

Thanks much. For anyone who hasn't heard it, this is a great show. Performance-wise, it's my favorite of the LA run. It's another Millard recording, and the quality is quite good, but Ronnie is not as audible as he is on the Millard recording of the 13th.

Sorry, love Rocks Off, but it's always a mess live, at least since '73, but sometimes even in 72-73.

I guess I'm in the minority, here, but Goin' Home is my least favorite song on Aftermath. Yes, it was long, but IMO it didn't really go anywhere -- it did ebb and flow a bit, but there really wasn't much going on vocally or instrumentally that justified the length. Rambler, on the other hand, is Rambler -- all kinds of tension and power created by everyone. I get it

Hey, JR. I remember you as a serious poster, so I believe you're giving us your opinion and not just trolling. Still, as disappointed as you may be, and as confused as you may be that people still like what the Stones are delivering, it is what it is. Maybe people are giving them bit of a break because of how important they've been in our lives, or maybe they can still find a lo

QuoteTheflyingDutchman QuoteHairball Addendum to the above mention of Miss You: In fact I think Micks best guitar playing is on some of the tunes from Some Girls...the back to the basics approach...influenced by a punk ethic if you will. He would have made a great punk rocker ripping up some simple and rudimentary rhythms...better than most well known punk rock guitarists imo. Well, it took

Quotethrak One more story. Before the show someone from Stones crew burned the organs because of different voltage in UK and Poland (i don;t know to which song Stones needed to organs ?). Anyway polish band Czerwono-Czarni with Ryszard Poznakowski wanted to borrow their instrument to Stones but it was one condition. Poznakowski said that Mick Jagger have to asked him to borrow organs personal

Not sure they're top secret, really. I assumed there just aren't any tapes circulating. Mr. Freezer (if he taped the show) had his own ideas about what should be released and when. I was at the first show, so I would definitely be interested if any recordings surface.

Have heard only the 3 songs previously available, so I have no review, but... I don't understand the notion that you have to be suffering to play blues. Blues is about life; yes, there are songs about people doing you wrong, but there have also always been plenty of songs full of humor, sex and swagger. After about 45 years of listening to blues, I can honestly say it has never made me

QuoteDandelionPowderman They (rs.com/Facebook(twitter etc.) used to release a short video right after the show on the 2013/14 tours. However, the dry soundboard audio (often of JJF) was usually a pain to the ears. From the 2014 gig in Rome (correct me if I'm wrong), they released a video of Streets Of Love, with audio from an earlier tour. They've been doing that ever since. Th

QuoteRoss QuoteGasLightStreet 12 bar blues... it's a loose term, really, because not all "12 bar blues" songs use 12 bars, sometimes it's more or less - within the song. They included some stinkers in that list and left out some rather good and even great songs. It's not loose at all, it's mathematics. Certainly the most common blues is the 12-bar I-IV-V progre

Sticky Fingers, is a great album and most of those studio versions will never be improved upon, so I'm not going to compare it with Sticky Fingers Live. Having said that, I really like Sticky Fingers Live. They sound fresh and engaged -- Keith has recovered quite a bit from his post-fall issues, you can hear he is more confident and more spontaneous, Mick's voice is fuller and mor

QuoteDandelionPowderman QuoteSpud Agreed here too . It's also worth reminding folks that Keith has always been capable of some horrendous playing and howlers. It's sometimes just a function of his "wing it and and see what happens" nature... and sometimes due to his occasionally being more interested in posing than playing. Both the posing and the wing it-approach use

QuoteStonedRambler Of course Rocks Off live will never be as good as the studio version, on which Mick and Keef sing together as a duet. The problem is that Keith can't sing and play the guitar at the same time, so the backup vocalists have to do the harmonies. But IMHO Lisa did not do it very well on the last tour, so I am really courios about how Sasha will do it. It's true that Kei

Well, I had the experience of him NOT opening for the Stones -- he mysteriously failed to appear at the Houston afternoon show. I think there may be a reference to it in Ladies & Gentlemen. By the way, I think "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" and a few others are brilliant.

Yes, I like it. No, it doesn't have the traditional song structure. Do we really think he forgot that pop songs have a chorus and a bridge? Is it lazy? Maybe, but maybe he liked the sonic landscape better this way. Maybe he looks at it as a journey, instead of a loop...

They don't do this particularly well live. I do not blame Ronnie, who does a serviceable job most times. Even with Taylor, there's the issue of the intro, and the vocals and...well, the feel. The song stumbles in places.

QuoteNaturalust Quotemarcovandereijk Charlie is everybody's darling. Rightfully so! A question to the drummers around here: how challenging is an average Stones setlist for a drummer? Are there enough variations in rythm, figures and styles to keep yourself interested as a drummer? No there really isn't. Especially after you've played the tunes as many times as Charlie
