In California in the 1970s, if you asked someone how they were doing, they might answer "Seeds and stems again." It was part of the vernacular.

The great mystery to me is not whether they dye their hair, because of course they do. The mystery to me is why those old men have full heads of hair. Some sophisticated new hair implant technology, I reckon.

It's kind of hard to disassociate the album covers from the music on the album. I always thought the "Let It Bleed" cover was kind of daft (cake and bicycle wheel floating above disembodied stereo needle and record), but the music inside is so good, who cares?

I'm sure the different jazz musicians all had their reasons, mercantile or otherwise, for playing with the Stones. A word about Sonny Rollins' contributions to "Tattoo You": He made that record much, much better than it would otherwise have been. His playing on "Slave" and "Waiting on a Friend" push those songs to a higher level. Has anybody ever made

Thanks for posting this. You had me going back to the Ya-Yas version, which I haven't listened to in a long time. I like the straightforward simplicity of the 1969 recording. Still, no matter, the 1972 Ladies and Gentlemen version is my favorite.

I used to love Mott. The campiness. The weird English accents (to my California ears). Ian Hunter was a pretty good lyricist. The band's cover of Lou Reed's "Sweet Jane" is the best version of that song ever recorded. And you're right, "Mott" is a little masterpiece. "Drivin' Sister" is a blistering rock song, a genuine classic. I used to put it o

Jethro Tull was big in the early 1970s. Where I come from in California at least, their Englishness was considered very exotic. All the cool kids had their albums. "Locomotive Breath" is my favorite Jethro Tull song. With "Bungle in the Jungle" in 1974 (their last hit) their music started to fall off and die a quiet death. Funny how few people care about them now when yo

Love the man! I wish him all the best and hope he gets back to himself very, very soon. His drumming is the secret sauce in the Stones' sound. He's a jazz drummer, and a good one, in a rock and roll band. Get well soon Charles Watts!

You can't go ranking the 18 songs on "Exile on Main Street." There are no songs on that album. There are 18 movements. You have to listen to that record in one sitting in order from the first movement, "Rocks Off," to the last, "Soul Survivor." Along the way you will explore many peaks and valleys. You will hear something you never heard in the 412 previous time

Best blues number in my opinion is "Love in Vain" live, both the version recorded in New York in 1969 ("Ya-Yas Out") and the 1973 version recorded in Belgium ("Bedspring Symphony") The song is a cover of a Robert Johnson classic. What I like about these recordings is how slow and sad they are. The song is a very, very sad one. A man takes the lady he loves to board a

I was first on my block to get it because the guy at the local record store knew what a big Stones fan I was. He had a copy especially for me. I took it home and played it right away. I told my mom I couldn't come to dinner because I had something very important to do. I was disappointed on the first hearing, but the album has grown on me over the years. "Fool to Cry" is a beaut

One that the IORR crowd would like: “Rock Against Yeast Infections,” from 1979, with the Candy Slice group performing “Gimme Mick.” Backstage at the benefit concert, Rick Nelson plays himself. Bob Marley is there along with the young (Dan Acklroyd) and old (John Belushi) Elvis, Dolly Parton, and Olivia Newton John. The best is “Candy Slice,” a thinly disguised Patti Smith played by Gilda Radne

From the well-known Rolling Stones song on Let It Bleed: I can see that you're fifteen years old No I don't want your I.D. And I've seen that you're so far from home But it's no hanging matter It's no capital crime Fifteen years old! Vulnerable runaway girls! Better cancel the Rolling Stones...and quick!

I'm not an Elton John fan, but I couldn't help but notice how his music dominated the radio when I was in high school in the years 1972-1976. He was everywhere. An Elton John fan -- again, not me -- could argue that Elton John's five albums in the years 1972-1975 rivaled any run by any other group. These five albums appearing one after the other were all #1 in the U.S.: Honky Ch

I have a whole bunch of great mix-tapes that people made for me over the years -- and no machine to play them. Somebody could start a service digitizing people's mix-tapes and make some money. I'd love to hear some of those tapes. A few of them were made at friends' houses while drinking beer and engaging in illegal substances. Fun times!

QuoteBN78 Quotejbwelda Its the biggest city in the lower central valley and was about the size of cities they were touring at the time, location aside. Actually, the only reason Fresno is derided is it is in California and therefore compared to way greater areas. If we are talking the entire USA, then they played a lot of way lesser venues back then, especially in the midwest and northern parts.

The album is called "Bobby Keys." It came out in 1972. Some of the songs call to mind the horn arrangements on "Bitch." Others are jazzier. This lukewarm review from AllMusic says "...recording began after Keys, Price, and Nicky Hopkins wrapped up the Exile on Main St. tour." Besides Keys, these musicians played on the album: Jim Price (trumpet); John Uribe, Lesli

Love it! IMHO the song is superior to "Brown Sugar," the big hit from "Sticky Fingers." And that MT guy could play rhythm guitar. He should've played it more often and let the other guy take the lead.

Mink DeVille, and after he started working under his own name, Willy DeVille. All his albums have something interesting on them, but his first ("Cabretta") and his third ("Le Chat Bleu") are masterpieces on par with any Stones album.
