TheSavageYoungXyzzy Hrm... a question.

Suppose this. I've got Banquet, Bleed, Sticky Fingers, Exile, Some Girls, Black & Blue, Steel Wheels, December's Children, Aftermath [US], Stripped, and Between The Buttons. They probably go in this order.

1) Exile on Main St.
2) Sticky Fingers
3) Let It Bleed
4) Beggar's Banquet
5) Some Girls
6) Stripped
7) Between The Buttons
8) December's Children
9) Aftermath
10) Black & Blue
11) Steel Wheels

And I have Bridges on order to hear their most recent stuff.

So what should I get next? I was thinking either Goat's Head Soup or IORR.

Also, are there any good bootlegs you could recommend (having only listened to them, of course, and never ever owned them ever, oh no) of the Exile era? Remasters, unused takes, discarded songs, Keith staggering around, etc.?

Or, mayhap, where I could get that live version of Rocks Off from '73? I'd realllly love to hear them do it this tour, but only if done right. 'Cuz if done right, that's a song to riot to.

TheSavageYoungXyzzy Goodness me, how could I forget - Yeah, I've got Tattoo You. I like it quite a bit - I can't even remember the list but I really like "Worried About You", poppy as it is.

Chico But you have not lived until you have heard the mighty version of midnight rambler from 72. Faster, more energetic, better solos. Find the Ladies and Gentleman boot or the like.Phew

marko In my opinion,buy them all,it doesn´t matter in what order.
Just het em all,but remember,there are 2 version from 60ies
albums,uk and us version.
And one more,in my opinion get all the albums before you
buy any bootlegs,you must know the songs before that.

AlexanderHic "Goats Head Soup" is soooo sentimental. It's got the perfectly known "Angie" plus the most underrated stones' song of all time: "Winter", enough to virtually erase -that's the kind of world they care about only, it seems, from their music videos- every Aerosmith power ballad in existence. Richards's voice can make you cry with "Coming down again", "A 100 years ago" is tender and both "Star star" and "Heartbreaker" are decent rockers, performed live over and over without apparently overestimating the patience of the audiences. [Before some of Jagger's current PC lyrical alterations. One thing's for sure: they will never ever write a song such as "Cocksucker blues", even if there was a theatrical element when they wrote it back in the sixties. I don't think they care nowadays to get over some of the simplicities they sang for Bridges, which perfectly fits in your average country song: "Im drinking again".... Yeah, from the sink, Mick. It's all in the music of course (Dylan's "Time out of mind" contains tons of linear thoughts of this order, but there's the consistency and atmosphere that glued that single record), but a little bit of personality doesn't hurt either: "Tops", "Waiting on a friend"... ]

However, it all depends whether you dig the opening track, "Dancing with mr. D" which isn't neither jamaican nor proto disco nor a nasty rocker... it's closer to Alice Cooper (to an inspired version of one the man's compositions, that is, but the atmosphere comes close) than it is to "Sympathy for the devil", but the performing still belongs to the Taylor era, so it sounds fine.

I think "IORR" is one of the least accomplished albums by the stones because it doesn't aim for absolutely anything but to a mild vitriolic entertainment right in the middle of the seventies; it isn't even infuriating as some of the shit from "Dirty work" so the response is barely lukewarm here. Shit, rumor has it that Keith even shut Taylor's solo while recording "Time waits for no one" at the studio and didn't even bother to ask him in advance. Don't panic! There's always those relatively long-felt "You don't have to mean it" and "Too rude" ditties, worthy of MP3 quality...

Stonesthrow Of the ones you don't have, Rolling Stones Now must be first. Then Out Of Our Heads. Then 12 x 5. Then get the rest.

Hunt down Mickboy's remasters...especially Exiles(Main Street Revisited) and Aftermath(Only When Its Frozen)...those are his two absolute masterpieces in my opinion...but he has several others including Satanic Majesties, Black & Blue and IORR...they include the original tracks in incredible sonic condition as well as outtakes and live versions of the songs from those albums...I've been a fan for 37 years and I'm blown away by his stuff...I'm sure you will be too!
