Oh God no! Not more 'will they, won't they' discussion about a possible new album. I honestly hope they won't. Because whatever they do will be hammered by almost all and sundry. Damned if they do. Damned if they don't. I'm astounded by the searing criticism unloaded on almost everything they have done in the past 20-25 years. I find lots to like on almost ever

Quote1963luca0 Because these songs are all far below the quality standard of what’s worth being officially issued. 'All far below...' I don't agree. Not by some distance. These are perfectly good numbers and entirely worthy of official commercial release. I very much hope that further material of a similarly good standard also finds its way on to the market. Even at the steep p

So glad to see The Association getting a lot of support from good people posting. Okay, they were more conventional than many but that should not detract from their overall class and skill. I loved all the big hits Never My Love, Along comes Mary, Windy, Cherish. Bring 'em on...

Very generous comments by Yoko and Paul. Good on them. Although I was never a fan of The Pacemakers who I thought were far too poppy, nevertheless Gerry Marsden was a lovely bloke and a thorough professional who deserved his success and his place in the annals of rock'n'roll. God bless him and my deepest sympathies to his family. Rest in Peace my friend!

Not sure what all the fuss is about. A few surprises and odd rankings for sure, but hardly the garbage list many seem to suggest. And I have no problem combining compilations, live albums and official studio releases into one overall list. I always think it that a decent list or ranking exercise is playing things far too safe if it simply echoes conventional wisdom 100%. It is good to be anno

Thank you for this wonderful gem. Very much appreciated. Very definitely not up to official release standards but beautifully sloppy and great fun. I really wish The Stones would relax their draconian grip on material such as this and just open the vaults properly. Not simply play about with marketing concepts like the 'From The Vault' strapline which only provides material very careful

I am constantly amazed that a guy who creates and performs some of the most sublime music EVER is such an a**hole. I'm afraid there is no other word for him. Since he was tearing up stages with Them in the mid-60s right up until today he has constantly flown in the face of all logic and reason. And done so with such anger, frustration and vindictiveness that any good that might emerge fr

Big thanks to everyone who has contributed to, and explained, the significance of the amazing amount of data included in this thread. An absolute joy to an old nerd like myself. This week (26th August 2020) The Stones have racked up their 344th week on the Billboard 200 with Hot Rocks. I now know that album is their biggest seller ever. When I look at its contents, and also at the contents o

I've been saying for a long time what many others here have also been saying. Any new Stones album will have very limited sales and a very short chart lifespan. But more importantly, any new music will instantly be criticised heavily, and compared unfavourably, to what the band produced in their prime. The best The Stones can hope for is what the poet Alexander Pope called 'damnation wi

I've always had a sneaking liking for Dirty work. Maybe it's because it seems to be universally hated, and I'm a perverse old bugger. I hardly played it for years, allowing the world to make my mind up for me that it was a pile of dross. About ten years ago I gave it a spin and was pleasantly surprised. Sure it's not a GREAT album but it is not wall to wall crap either. One

The much loved, much missed, never forgotten halcyon days of 1967. When the world was young and possibilities seemed endless. Brings a big smile to my face and an echo of some long forgotten energy to my soul. But given my advanced years now, any energy is rather fleeting I'm afraid. Very beautiful women indeed. I wonder what do they look like today? All of fifty three years later. Are t

The Sweet pushed hard to be given artistic freedom from their contract with Chin and Chapman. The turned down several tracks that were eventually recorded by Mud. In particular Dynamite and Hypnosis, both of which were massive hits for Les Gray & Co. Sweet eventually gained complete artistic control over their recordings - writing, recording and producing. By then they had evolved into a

Happy birthday Satisfaction. I accept it may have a slightly different birthday in different territories but round about 1st June will do very nicely for me. Is it their greatest ever?

Just seen that good ol' Hot Rocks has once again re-entered the Billboard 200 today (31 March 2020). It is by a distance the Stones best ever selling album. It also indicates the level of interest that still exists out there for their older material and, of course, many of the warhorses. I guess these two facts, together with other considerations such as the ageing process, and the overall
