Now that Mathijs has been kind enough to upload Brixton (on Hot Stuff), I think it deserves its own thread for reviews - we've been waiting so long! So here are my first impressions. Firstly, the sound gets clearer as it goes: the mix is a bit chaotic in the beginning and becomes almost perfect by the end. Jagger's voice also becomes higher in the mix, even perhaps a bit too high fo

A forgotten gem of the 80s: Fun Boy Three (Terry Hall's band after the specials), especially their second LP, "Waiting". A favourite is Farmyard Connection:

JMarko pointed a few numbers missing from Soundsystem, I noticed another one: the single mix of Magnificent seven. There are three mixes afaik: (1) the album one, length 5:34, with Strummer yelling "maaaaagnificent"; (2) The "singles" CD which fades out on "What have we got? Magnificent!" length approx 3:40, very different sound (3) The "Story of th

Sandinista is a fantastic album. How can you say it's full of half-baked riffs? It's full of highly original arrangements and wonderful lyrics. Even the songs that are less perfect (Crooked beat, Junkie slip) are always interesting attemps and add to the mood. An incredibly athmospheric record. Something about England, Magnificent Seven, Washington Bullets, Charlie don't surf, L

These samples are amazing! The sound is great, a bit hollow but therefore warm and spacious. Ronnie does minimal work but OK, and Mick shines with a deep, warm voice - much better on Love in vain than on the whispery, mannered studio version from Stripped. Fab!

I know there are many Dylan fans here: I've discovered an AMAZING album of Dylan covers by bluegrass specialist Tim O'Brien. Note that I generally loathe tribute albums, and also that I think it's almost impossible to top Dylan on his own material as he is so idiosyncratic, and yet: I like ALL these cuts better than the originals! Unbelievably good! The arrangements are varied thro

My review: Mick's voice sounds nothing like 73 or 78 in my opinion. It's thiner, has almost no growl, but he uses it extremely well and reaches high notes which he's not reached in years or ever - very impressive and enjoyable. As for his dancing and body language, I thought he was more relaxed, less forced than on the previous three shows (based on poor youtube vids), and there

Yes, Ronnie was brilliant! Very creative and hot on the fills and licks and tweets and twists and turns, I love his style when he's on.

Quoteliddas Quoteotonneau All Down The Line: Jagger hits the high notes with amazing force, I know no other 1995-2007 version where he does it like this, just as good (although different in "tone") as 72.

All this of course does not mean that those who loved the show should now throw their memories away! I remember having a similar experience when listening to the wonderful concert of Ken Boothe in Paris, years ago: the concert was amazing, a truly priviledged moment, but on tape it sounded awful. I agree with stoneage that not having to run around surely benefits Jagger. On stadium shows, if y

Guitar department is great? I hear no intro that isn't shaky. The basic riffs - SMU, HTW - are fine and groovy, but JJF, TD, the intro to Dance, the solo on WAY I find very poor. ENSTL sounds like any patchy pub band... I don't believe Jagger is being "carried" by the band at all. There are many shows from this era when you'll hear him go "Come on Ronnie" or

Also on CYHMK: he goes for the "CAN'T you hear" fearlessly, breaks his voice in the process. One gets the feel that this performance was ment to stay: it's not just Jagger-to-watch but Jagger to listen to. Very, very hot. As for the band: whatever we say about the sidemen, they form one hell of a band - the break of Dance pt1 is amazingly good, drums and whistles and voices

It's one of these rare nights when the Jag sings the high note on HTW chorus, for instance. Great version, too.

A generous fan has uploaded the soundboard recording of Cirkus Krone; what a night for Jagger! I think one of the most amazing performances I've heard from him. That's how strong, Stray Cat, even tired war horses like BS: he's really SINGING and Rocking like a powerfouse. Loved it! But the guitars, dear me, what a pity - they ruin the night and I guess that's why we got Olympi

Quotedrbryant I don't have anything against the band playing private shows. In many ways, it's somehow suitable for the digital age. It recalls the days of the Troubador, going from town to town, playing for his living. Handel would have never written Water Music if he wasn't being paid by King Whatever the Whatever to prepare a performance on barges floating past his majesty. R
