Have you guys ever heard Merry Clayton's vocal track isolated from Gimme Shelter?  Prepare for goosebumps.

 

 

I always wished Janis had had the right band behind her... which she never did... I think the best one would have been the Faces...  just swap her and Rod Stewart... (or better yet, keep them both)...  

 

Merry Clayton deserved the same thing... she was better than just a back-up, and her own records coulda/shoulda been better...

So, you may recall (or probably not) that I ranked the Stones' album "Let It Bleed" the 8th best album of the 1960s.  

 

I love the Stones.  And I love this record.  It's now my favorites Stones' album.  It wasn't always, but now it is.

 

However, they fucked up.

 

Here is the track listing on "Let It Bleed"

 

1.  Gimme Shelter

2.  Love in Vain

3.  Country Honk

4.  Live with Me

5.  Let It Bleed

6.  Midnight Rambler

7.  You Got the Silver

8.  Monkey Man

9.  You Can't Always Get What You Want

 

All of this is great.  Every song is awesome.

 

However, I'd point you to track 3, "Country Honk"

 

Here is the version that was placed on the original record

Here is the other version, called "Honkey Tonk Women", the one you're likely more familiar with (and played regularly on classic rock channels)

 

https://youtu.be/A6M77oHD110

 

I REALLY WISH they had made track 3 the second version -- the one that is better.

 

"Let It Bleed" is an immaculate album, no doubt.  But The Stones screwed up here.  I  wish they hadn't.

But I'll throw you a bone. Why is Manfred Mann's "Blinded by the light" the version the radio always plays when clearly Springsteen's is superior?

They did Country Honk first... but then Mick Taylor showed up (fresh from Mayall's Bluesbreakers) and had a big impact immediately, which gave us Honky Tonk Women. 

 

Mick Taylor should get more credit for that.

 

ps.  Him leaving the Bluesbreakers was the last straw for Mayall.  First, he lost Clapton who left to form Cream .  So he found Peter Green to replace him.  But then he left (along with Beano-record Bluesbreakers Mick Fleetwood and John McVie) to form Fleetwood Mac.  Which meant Mayall had to start all over again and find more amazing musicians.  Which he did by finding Mick Taylor.  But when Taylor left to join the Stones, that was it... Mayall was tired of having to find a new guitar player every year or so when the guy on his roster left for a supergroup... so he swore off having electric guitarists... which gave us the all-acoustic Turning Point album.

Ok I'll bite: always thought Beggars Banquet was their best. Brian Jones' last serious contribution before his untimely death and Keith Richards really hitting his stride as one of the great lead guitarists. Early Stones, while raw and unpolished, was great and no better example than England's Newest Hitmakers album. I have the early CD but wish somehow they would or I could find a higher quality sound, better separation.

Supposedly the Rolling Stones are going to announce a summer stadium tour on Thursday, and Baltimore is on the list.  Hopefully it turns out to be true, and the show is at Camden Yards.

The Angelos boy mentioned that a year or so ago about this being a possibility going forward.  The Billy Joel show seemed to be a success so I'm sure this would as well.  Tickets will probably be outrageous but I've never seen them live and may pay for them.

I saw the Stones in the 90's and paid $50 for my ticket. I'm so glad I did. Going to one of their shows now, means taking out a second mortgage or selling a vital organ or two. 


Good news! I saw a dog today.

Nothing close at all.  Pittsburgh is probably the closest
