QuoteDoxa Looking at the UK single charts, they had no problem getting top 20 with most leading singles all the way to "Streets Of Love" that made #15 (quite good, huh?). Then dramatical fall ("Doom And Gloom" #61, "Living In A Ghost Town" #61), reflecting the tendency happened earlier in the US Charts. Actually, the last UK number one is "Honky Tonk Women"

Over 1.1 million views in 30 hours, not bad for a guy reaching 78 years old in 2 months, that's the way things work right now, a surprise drop, no physical format available, quick, fast and collect views on Youtube.

Well, according to Mick the new stuff hurts the Stones legacy, "it has to be very good" on his own words. After ABB he lost interest in music too, he didn't release a solo album in 20 years either, only a couple of new songs here and there and I'm sure he has over 50 songs or demos written during the last 15+ years.

QuoteTell that to Paul McCartney. Since 2006, he's released 4 albums of completely new material, one cover album, 2 classical(!) albums, one 'super group' album, and has launched his own (arguably better than the Stones) Archives line. All while touring like mad. Or if we want someone not exactly on the same level as the Stones, let's look at Bruce Springsteen. Since 2006,

Seeing some of the latest releases from vintage acts, one can see why the Stones are not in the rush to end the album. No release from any old act lasted more than a month in the charts, actually almost no one survived after the second week, and without a tour to bundle the album and get more sales is even worse. Mick is very aware of that, too much hard work only for the die hards, a bette

The vocals are very close to War Baby on some parts, the same style, so it looks like end of 86 or 87 to me.

Quoteyearsinthemaking We know there are extensive recordings of the '78 and '81 tours. My belief is that they have numerous earlier shows recorded as well. The Stones were ahead of the curve when it came to audio and light effects at shows. They also have long been the wealthiest touring band out there.

It's amazing how low the sales are in the UK this year, Taylor Swift just hit #1 with only 27k, Macca will be #1 on Christmas week with less than 50k sold. Blue and Lonesome sold 105k in the first week of December 2016, the entire Top 6 on Christmas week sold over 50k that year including B&L at #4 with 58k sold in the 4th week, sales are down over 50% in less than 4 years.

QuoteStoneage I don't know, Dandy. I guess this album is rather fresh still. Maybe Bruce is not going down with the kids? Probably not. Heavy radio rotation though. A very radio friendly song. Radio is about 10-15% of the singles charts these days, 70% is streaming and 10-15% sales. The #1 song on rock radio or Triple A radio is not even on the US Hot 100.

Regular readers of these pages will note that rare are the weeks in which at least one vintage recording doesn’t make a returning impact. But it appears to be left to the Rolling Stones to take these comebacks to an en
