QuoteStonedRambler My IORR mobile experience got really good since my phone is showing a mobile version of the website. That happened some months ago. Before it was only displaying the original desktop view which always required a lot of zooming and scrolling. Browsing on my work PC aside, these days, I only ever view Tell Me on my phone. I find this experience to be OK on the whole.

Stereo really wasn’t very good until 4-track recording became the ‘norm’ For the Beatles, A Hard Day’s Night was their first 4-track stereo LP, with the vocals in the centre. I’ve often wondered about the Stones and their ‘genuine’ 60’s stereo mixes. What was their first true stereo release? I’m under the impression their first two Decca LP’s were mono-only. Would that be correct?

I like that simplicity of the site and the message board. Of course, here is. One what antiquated in comparison to elsewhere, but I’m comfortable with that, as I’m sure we all are. It’s forever the year 2000 If only I, myself, were not ageing.

I’m in complete agreement with Silver Dagger, here. The Beatles were revolutionary. Without the phenomenon that was John, Paul, George and Ringo, I feel that popular music would have evolved very differently. They were crucial to the transition from rock n’ roll to what followed.

Am I alone in, generally, usually only associating You Got Me Rocking as a live number; any given performed rendition, at that. Of course, I am familiar with the studio-take, it’s just that it’s become such a predicted live staple. Until a recent listen to Voodoo Lounge, I had, in fact, not heard the studio-version for quite a while. I do prefer the ‘better’ live-takes, I must say.

According to the profile, my first post was in January 2005. I do have a suspicion that I may have been a member before under a different name, though I'm not entirely sure. I was certainly aware of Bjornulf as far back as September 2002, when someone accompanying me pointed him out on a New York City street: 'that's Bjørnulf Vik' Big Al: 'who?' I remember he was wea

Yes, under some circumstances, it is , perhaps, not quite so convenient! However, the Jubilee Line goes direct to Waterloo, so is great for me, as I'd be travelling home from the adjoining Waterloo East.

QuoteStonedRambler At the Hurricane Sandy Relief concert in 2012 they were allowed to play two songs. Beside JJF they chose YGMR. And for a good reason. It's probably THE modern-day stones live song, if you like it or not. Well, it is. Alongside Slipping Away, it's the only 'modern-era' recording that gets played live regularly. Every other post-'89 number is either per

QuoteUGot2Rollme In so glad they played it in Detroit rather than LSTNT, because it does rock - Love Ronnies slide and Keith's solo is heavy - even Chuck adds some fire to it. I say keep it in on occasion. Yes, I agree. Whilst I prefer Let’s Spend the Night Together as a song, in a live setting, I feel You Got Me Rocking works better. Even when Keith flaps the solo a little, the sheer oo

Let's not forget that a Rickenbackher was Pete Townshend's choice of guitar throughout much of the 1960's. When did he switch to a Gibson? The Tommy album?

Quoteteleblaster You're talking about England rather than the UK. Face masks have remained mandatory in various settings in Scotland.

QuoteHairball Don't Stop during the Licks tour was mildly entertaining to put it politely as it really isn't that good of a song to begin with - it's basically "Stones-Lite", and it quickly wore out it's welcome imo.

There’s also pictures of Keith miming on stage with a Rickenbacker; probably Top of The Pops or some such. I like the Rickenbackher a lot: from The Beatles and The Byrds, to the sounds of The Jam and The Smiths. It’s certainly had an endearing popularity.

QuoteGasLightStreet Damn. That was excellent. Absolutely. This song was destroyed thoroughly in 1981. URBAN JUNGLE they neutered it. It wasn't much better on the VOODOO tours but certainly by the LICKS tour they were back to playing it with the power it respects (the PPV Madison Square Garden show was spectacular), which started, of course, in 1969.

Moments like these and, yeah, they’ve still got it! I love the driving-guitars, the rhythm and the beat. Jagger is masterful. It’s unfortunate they cannot always sustain the ferociousness throughout these shows, but these little blasts of nostalgia certainly make one grin.

Lisa Fischer’s vocals on Gimme Shelter were excellent. It really became a showcase for her. Sasha Allen isn’t quite there yet, for me. Fischer was such a charismatic stage performer with the Stones. Sasha Allen isn’t quite there yet, though she’s better than good, in my opinion. In the sexiness stakes? Well, prime Fisher, and current Allen, are exactly my taste in women. If you could see my da

QuoteDandelionPowderman A common misconception. Keith has always been more than a rhythm player. Absolutely. As we all should know, he was the lead-guitarist during the 'Brian-era' Post-1960's, he's more 'lead-rhythm' I think that's a term he's used himself, actually.
