I like the 78 version but I miss the horns. Brussels for me is untouchable: the end climax is just amazing, with great interaction between Mick and Charlie.

Great thread! And indeed I LOVE Let's Work, And the whole Emotional Rescue, and.... I think visually the Stones were ridiculous in 72-76, especially Jagger. Never understood how I could love his studio work during this time so much, and find his "singing" and "dancing" so horrid on stage. I'd take him in 95-98 over 72 anyday! I'm so sorry!

Miss you is one of the cleverest arrangements ever. The disco meets blues works so well! When I first heard this song I knew nothing of disco at all (secluded hippy life!), and I had no bias such as "the stones are trying to be fashionable" or any such thing; and simply loved it. When I realized how many influences come into it, I admired it. The economy of the song (Verses+brea

During 40licks tour, Does Mick sometimes say "To the Bridge" on Bitch before the "Hey when you call my name" part?

I am a big fan - but this video is all I feared the shows would be. Firstly, it's definitely playback (you even hear the two superimposed voices from the studio version at the end). Secondly, Michael does no dance move at all, apart from a little shoulder wriggling by the end, and oddly shaking before the guitar player. I thought from the start that the shows would be playback with choreo

Well... Not that I think they should cover an MJ song - they shan't and they won't - I can hear in my head a groovy swamp version of The Way You Make Me Feel!!

Yeah, Rocks Off and Loving Cup. I also like the instrumental bridges: Shattered, brilliant, and JJF, with the maracas coming in. I always thought it was great when the stones took the pain to write specific instrumental parts rather than just solo on the riff.

To be fair, it was not a "very public display of affection", but rather a "private display of very much affection". Pictures taken through the windows of cars now? And that counts as exhibiting oneself?

Mryapp: "It is my theory that no one really likes opera,they just pretend to in an effort to appear refined." Well that's a rubbish theory! I, for one, really like opera, lots of it, and actually, opera is not very refined in general. It is the most bombastic part of classical music, and anyone can get a blast from a Vivaldi Aria, from the Queen of the Night aria in the Magic Fl

Thanks for the link! Kind of OK. I've read a few reviews (posted on Expected Rain) and I don't get the fuss about My Wife's Home Town. I quite like Life Is Hard, the rest I think is, well, for diehards only. But I like the accordion!

I see... I saw him at a festival near Paris in, what, 1993 perhaps, and he was doing that stuff too, stretching syllables in, honestly, an awful way. Just like a womaaaaiiieeeaaannnn.... That been said, Dylan always had a thing for stretched vocals - many of the arrangements from the Rolling Thunder Review were like that: "Memphis blues agaaaaiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii" "Lay accross my

Great stuff. Are the girls in the crowd hired models like in Shine a Light, or is it just an amazingly pretty lot? Oh by the way the band is great, too.

You know sometimes when I walk down the street, people ask me for a cigarette or a lighter and stuff... I know they recognized me and, really, they dream of kissing my boots, but they come up with these smart strategies so I can pour a word of wisdom on them - real tactful. Others, on the other hand, they just yell at me. One was such a fetichist he even stole my bicycle! God! Ah, it's tough

Pfffff.... I think there is nothing in common between the elder bluesmen singing with guts and gusto till their death and the ridiculous show of the pistols above. besides, who are they pissing off, Muppet? Do you see the queen going green? Do you see the establishment screaming? Or do you think I and NorthShore are like so pissed off we are about to throw the computer through the window? Naaa...

Woaw I'm with NorthShore on that one... That's just pathetic - and I used to be very very much into the pistols. But there is a limit to how many ironical twists you can put on things before drawning into absolute rubbish. Their faces, these imbecile expressions they clearly pull without any feeling whatsoever. Pointless.

Not much wrong with the biograph version, but to my ears, a little too much bass, the sound a little muffled and the voice not ringing loud and clear. Does not spoil my enjoyment; but I'm getting the girl into Dylan and wish I could blast that song in crystal clear sound!

An OT post in an OT thread - hope that's OK! I follow all the Dylan threads and, although I still don't manage to get into his recent stuff, it got me into listening to his older stuff for the first time in years, so thanks for that! And a few random thoughts, with a question in the end, to you specialists: New Morning is such a magnificent album! I love the simplicity of the lyrics

Make it three Pogues fans! Boys from the county hell, punkish and too cool, the intro to Turkish song of the Damned, mind blowing, and Young Ned of the Hill, beautiful, and all of Rum, Sodomy and the Lash. A pity Shane MacGowan lost his voice so completely, spoiling large shares of the last three albums for me... Otherwise, I listen mostly to classical (from Monteverdi to Boulez, all the way!)

"Well, if Mick had spent less time pursuing babes and more time fiddling with adolescent boys, and similarly Keith had devoted less energy to being a junkie and more to turning himslf into Howling Wolf or Muddy Waters, courtesy of the surgeon's scalpel and skin dye ... then maybe the Stones too could've sold out 50 dates at the O2 back in 2007, instead of just the 3 ?"

Yes of course, the spoken/sung words... that's why my favourite singer is Sam Cooke, who can just sing "I'm in a sad mood tonight" and can make it work. Still, I do think there are some sorts of boundaries. For instance, Cooke has this absurd sentence (hilarious, too): How would Romeo feel if his Juliet had turned out his advances and played hard to get? He would never let

So I listened to Things have changed and Most of the Time, and rather enjoyed it I must say. I actually saw the video of the first song too, which I thought was very good. I will probably never get to play these songs on a regular basis (because I still think the music is nothing special and the voice not to my taste), but it was good to hear some nice Bob words, and indeed they are rather funny

Well I'd lecture you on irony as well and explain that as a rhetorical figure, it does not involve purposefully misunderstanding your opponent's point in order to pretend that he misses it - but I think more than one trope per day would be too much for a healthy intellectual diet, don't you agree.
