Scottfree Gimmie Shelter 97-St. Louis the greatest version ever, incredible synched inter play, Just My imagination in 1981-82 (hampton) I thought it sucked 97-99 whenever they did it, Midnight rambler always, Out of control by a long shot, Tumbling Dice sometimes, Ruby Tuesday 1989, Last time 97, Paint it Black 1999, Street Fighting Man 1972-73, Gimmie Shelter 1972, Shattered sometimes, Factory Girl 1989 (killer), Sympathy sometimes when Keith actually plays a good solo, Beast of Burden 1981-82 (hampton), Under My thumb 1981-82 (hampton). More to follow....

John Wood I watched the Voodoo Lounge video from Miami for the first time in a while, and was surprised at how bad the guitar playing was in this song. Not a very good solo by Keith at all!

tumblingdice I loved Flip the Switch on BtB, was surprised how good it sounded live at the show. 19th Nervous Breakdown blew me away at that one too. I like Gimmee Shelter live although I used to not care for it as much from the studio until I saw it live.Saint of me sounded good, I like some girls beteter live, Midnight Rambler and also on BtB You got me rocking was great I can still hear Charlie's drums echo off the Stadium.

Scottfree OH my yes "Flip the Switch," F'ing incredible in ST louis 97, Keith was awesome, great techniques, Ronnie did a lil mix in but very little other than that. Some Girls 99 was amazing, really rocked up, Ronnie showed up on this one!

Joey I must agree with the individuals who stated that most of the tracks off of " Some Girls " sound better live .

Respectable , Lies , Burden , Miss You , Shattered all sound better live .

However , " Gimme Shelter " is sacred and the studio version remains " THE " definitive version .....I have not heard a live performance that compares to the studio version .....................Yes , even Brussels .

"Beat Me Senseless Ronnie "

tumblingdice I don't know about the ST. Louis show but Ronnie showed up in Orlando, that is what blowed me away so much about it was the mix of guitars at the beginning of the song. They were both good and loud and great.

padre Mixed Emotions-Atlantic City-89. No doubt about that.

On June 16, 2001 the hit counter of the WET page was inserted here, it had 174,489 hits. Now the hit counter is for both the page and the board. The hit counter of the ITW board had 1,127,645 hits when it was closed and the Coolboard didn't have hit counter but was on line only two months and a half.
