Quotegotdablouse The only real multi-channel mix of Stones music AFAIK is "Sympathy For The Devil" in fabulous 5.1 from that SACD sampler issued in 2002 with the SACD (not multi-channel) rereleases. There are many great real 5.1 recordings out there but the one I prefer is Gilles Martin "remix" of some Beatles' songs for the Cirque du Soleil "Love" project.

QuoteLadykiller Some guy told me, that Mick Jagger used also a teleprompter during a concert of the A Bigger Bang Tour. He was standing in one of the stage balconys and saw this from his place. I hope this is not true, because I would be disappointed in some kind of way. Sorry to disappoint, but he was definitely using one as far back as "Steel Wheels" in 1989. From memory, I thi

In the 70s, and early 80s there was definitely a UK published version of Rolling Stone. I strongly suspect that The Rolling Stones had nothing at all to do with it. It was based on the USA version. It had some UK only articles, and did not carry all of the USA articles, and (I seem to recall) was shorter/lighter than the USA version. I had a subscription for about 10 years, but gave up wh

QuoteCousinC Don't know if there's a connection. But when I did a Stones Fanclub in the late 60's I' got letters from the London Stones office signed by an Annabell. Thanks (& to Christiano). No, it's definitely Ann (or Anne). And the family name is definitely "Belcher". Still digging....

I have chanced on the name Ann (or Anne) Belcher possibly in connection with very early Rolling Stones' history. It definitely rings bells, but I cannot find any written trace of her. Does it mean anything to anyone here?

Quotevertigojoe Hope your wife is ok! Me too! I had to cancel a trip a few years ago in similar circumstances, and there was totally NO problem with recouping the air fares. Depending on the small print in the policy, you may be able to get back the Hotel costs... and there's a tiny tiny chance for the tickets. Ring the insurance people as soon as possible.

QuoteHis Majesty My worst book votes go to... Jeremy Reed - The Last Decadent An awful, bollocks, absolute load of shite book. An arena large enough to hold the scale of my agreement with you does not exist. The only reason I have not shredded my copy is that I keep it to show people what sort of narcissistic crap is written by people who know zero about such an important subject.

I find it totally impossible to have the tiniest bit of sympathy when the fabulously wealthy have another tax loohole closed!

Whether or not these reported recordings are "good" is largely a matter of subjective judgement. But, if confirmed, these have to be of genuine historic significance. There are very few recordings of the solo work of the founder of one of the major popular bands of the 20th Century - hence the significance. Knowing how audio tape physically decays with time, I really really h

There are accounts of seating places for Lucky Dip tickets for the postponed Perth (Australia) show actually being "released" before the show date. I find this really odd. Is it a misunderstanding by the (grumpy) poster, an artefact from the postponed show(s), a snafu, or something else? Anyone seen anything like this before?

QuoteHappy24 It is overloaded with "facts," which is probably intentional, Bill obviously wants to show off what an incredible record of everything and what a great memory he has, which he both emphasises on more than one occasion. Bill keeps a daily diary, and has done since long before he joined The Rolling Stones. His actual memory sometimes may be at fault - he's even ol

If you mean this photo (There's a good print of it on P48 of Rolling With The Stones) then the fact that both Charlie and Bill appear in it means that it cannot be before Charlie joined (12th Jan 1963), and Bill dates it as April 1963. If you mean another.... can you find it online and point to it?

But are the versions of "Miss You" remixes? I ask because I'm sure that I was told once that the two shorter versions are indeed remixes, but that the (wonderful, and who could resist the disgusting pink vinyl version!) long one is a completely different take?

I used to have a good working reel-to-reel (not as good at the TEAC in this thread though) and although I collected some excellent Beatles reel-to-reel commercial releases I never once saw a Stones' one. Maybe because I was in the UK at the time. I am though pretty sure that there are unique versions of Stones' recordings on 8-Track. From memory there's something unique about
