I have to say that my favorite era is the seventies as far as the music they made. I never was a big Brian Jones fan but I still love all of the sixties stuff. And the 80s weren't as bad as I thought it was for them. I listened to their Undercover album the other day and it was pretty good. The best song from that album is "I Wanna Hold You". It's a Keith song!

Hands down, my favorite Stones era begins in the later half of the 60's and extends to Exile on Main St. Their earlier songs are awesome as well, I mean, Aftermath was one hell of an album. But when you compare that earlier work with later albums like Let It Bleed and Sticky Fingers, you can really hear that evolution of sound and style. A few of my favorites are "Midnight Rambler" and "Can't You Hear Me Knocking" simply because of the cohesion that they displayed, despite the long track time. Beggars Banquet is another really awesome album because it focused a lot more on acoustic work... I think there are only a two-ish songs on there that prominently feature an electric guitar, haha. I'd recommend to anyone that likes this particular era of Stones music to find a high quality download of the bootleg concert Brussels Affair. Along the same vein as the studio production, the Rolling Stones really put on some insanely energetic concerts during this period.

My thoughts exactly, second favourite is the Some Girls - Tattoo You era ('78 - '81).

That and "Ladies and Gentlemen The Rolling Stones" are my favorite Stones boots. You can find some Ladies and Gentlemen clips on youtube. My favorite boot that features Ronnie is "out on bail" from '78. They sound like they're about to fall apart throughout the whole concert but never do. You can listen to it here:
http://concerts.wolfgangsvault.com/dt/the-rolling-stones-concert/20052518-7762.html
favorite tracks from that show are Love in Vain, just my imagination, and Brown sugar.

This might sound kinda weird, but I think the Stones are very underrated in some ways by the young classic rock listeners. Most people just see them as a pop band because all of their major hits like Start me up, brown sugar, satisfaction, let's spend the night together, etc...are all really poppy and simple. Their really good stuff, like can't you hear me knocking, monkey man, rocks off,let it loose, slave, etc...never gets the attention it really deserves. Anyone else agree, or is it just me?

"She Was Hot" is pretty good. I heard that they actually played is on their last tour a couple of times.

ABSOLUTELY!! You bring up an awesome point (and a great clip! I'll have to check that out!!). The Rolling Stones get written off so much today by younger listeners because they ONLY know them through their radio hits, which are good songs, but way too overplayed and don't get to the gritty core of their blues roots. The song list you mentioned is spot on, with some of those being their best songs, but probably least known ("Knocking" probably not so much since it was in GH2, haha). I mean, people look at "Free Bird" and some other longer jam type songs by other bands and are like OMG, WHAT A ROCKIN' SONG.

Well?

What about Midnight Rambler? One of my all time favorite songs that just rocks the house... And that pretty much goes for everything on Beggar's, Exile, Fingers, Ya-Ya's, and Bleed. I could listen to those albums on repeat for days and never get tired of them, but somehow they still seem to get shuffled in with the mix when it comes to how the Stones are viewed today.

In honor, I am turning on Monkey Man right now.

Have any of you heard the Metamorphosis album? It's basically just a bunch of demos from the sixties with a lot of session musicians on it. It has some cool versions of their lesser knows sixties stuff. A lot of guest people appear on it. Like Jimmy Page because he was a session musician at the time these recordings were made.
#90
the only reason why I don't like Metamorphosis is because it's got a blah take of "Memo From Turner". The one off of London Singles blows me away every time, but I think most people got to know the song from the Metamorphosis version

Funny you should mention that, I'm just listening to the Best Of Mick Jagger CD I bought today - not a bad disc I must say. I really like the track he did with John Lennon, "Too Many Cooks (Spoil The Soup)".

I don't know, I think that for sure Exile remains to be seen as one of best rock n' roll records ever made, Let It Bleed for sure is up there too. I don't really agree with your statement because I think that when people think Stones albums they think Tattoo You, Exile, and Let It Bleed.

But when it comes to the radio, all you hear is Satisfaction, Brown Sugar, etc.... All the overplayed hits. I wish that more attention were paid to the deeper cuts from those albums in the mainstream media... Although Scorsese usually does a good job of that with his movies, haha!

BTW: I picked up the songbook for Singles Collection: The London Years today at my library... What inspired me was the fact that I couldn't find an accurate tab of "Memo From Turner", not to mention some of the licks, etc. Well I got a chance to sit down and play through it per the tab in the songbook. Seriously folks, it blew me away. Note for note, it's spot on. They even have it tuned to that dirty open E. Lots of awesome songs with a lot of attention to detail regarding the intricacies of each song. I'd highly recommend it to any Stones fan as it is a great reference for riffs, songs, etc.

It really is... you must MUST MUST find the Brussels Affair version if you haven't already, especially in 320 kbps.

Midnight Rambler has been stuck in my head (along with about 10,000 other Stones songs) this past week, haha.

Dude I've been a Stones addict this week. You can check out my blog and see my vinyl collection and look at all The Stones albums I've got. I've listened to so many this week.

Anyway, I haven't heard that version before. I'll have to check it out. I'm in high school right now and I'm helping plan the talent show this year and my band and I are thinking about playing "Midnight Rambler". Maybe we can put it up on youtube after the show and you can check it out.
#98
Please do... I'd love to hear your take on it. The best thing about Midnight Rambler is that it's 3 basic chords that you can do so much with. Add to that the tempo changes and some breakdowns and you can pretty much turn the song into your own.

ROCK AND ROLL!

They've got a Memo From Turner tab in there? There's a pretty good chord chart here on UG but I'd love to have it in a book. I love Jagger's 70s solo work, I won the "Best Of" Mick CD a few months ago on the radio and it's inspired me to go and dig around for some Jagger 45s and whatnot.

I'm hoping to cover "midnight rambler" live on ya ya's with the band i'm starting up soon, I don't know wether i wan't to play keiths part or mick taylors part. It's a really hard decision. Awesome chunky rythm part, or nice slippery blues rock leads.

play both... It's easy enough to do with a well qualified amp... just play around with getting a solid rhythm, nail the tempo changes, and then start filling with your own leads

Any Voodoo Lounge fans here?



meh...it's too long and has too much filler imo. I really love "love is strong" and the 2 Keith songs, though. And "you got me rocking" is great live. I find it surprising that it's their only album that has ever won a grammy.
#105
Do any of you think that they'll hit the road one more time? I really hope that they do. They've been my favorite band forever and it would be really depressing if I never get to see them. And also how the **** do you get tickets to see them. They sell out sooo fast. Any suggestions?

Well they just finished a 2 year long world tour in August....
Rumours in the Stones forums say that they will play some shows in India and the East and some in the major US markets to promote the new Scorsese movie in the late spring.

EDIT: I've actually never had a problem finding tickets to their shows through ticketmaster.

I liked Voodoo Lounge moreso than Steel Wheels, however, they were both marginal. Anything's better than Dirty Work though eh?

Dirty Work really wasn't that great. The cover is weird. I really like "Too Rude" though. I think that it's the best one off of the album. The rest are just bad.

So, an interesting question to Stones fans:

Otis/the MGs or Jagger/the Stones?

Tell you the truth, I dig the former more than the latter.

Not even Jagger can touch Otis when it comes to energy and soul.

For those interested, the Scorsese movie "shine a light" premiered yesterday at the Berlin movie festival and has gotten pretty good reviews so far. The first 20-30 minutes are a documentary while the rest is a concert film. They say the documentary is hilarious.

^ Looking forward to seeing the "Champagne And Reefer" bit with Buddy Guy.

How long ago was Shine A Light filmed? Like near the end of the ABB tour?

I really like "Too Rude" though.

Too Rude is quite strong, and when Dirty Work came out I really remember liking Harlem Shuffle. Haven't heard that one in ages though.

Does anyone know when the shine a light film is coming out over here? And also is it going to be played in cinemas or straight to dvd? And yes that Otis cover was rocking. I really like the fact that for once a blues/soul artist covered something that a rock band made it's almost as if the stones gave something back to the genre that inspired them. Thats not made a lot of sense i knwo but i know what i mean.
