What are ilxors feelings abt the really early stuff....?

xpost: Around and Around beats Chuck Berry; "I wanna be your man" betters the beatles, and i like the others you mentioned. only a couple times did they miss, imo (talkin' about "under the boardwalk" for example)

yeah Under the Boardwalk was not a good fit for them.

a lot of their early stuff is clumsy and or outright offensive in its brazen ripoff-ness but "Not Fade Away", you can't fuck with stuff like that. Phil Spector on maracas iirc.

says the guy who just listened to the entirety of the London Years box

it's also readily apparent that Keith was a startlingly good guitar player right from the get-go. he's often the best thing about those early singles.

Lennon seemed kinda pissy when he tried to play off "I Wanna Be Your Man" later on, like 'meh it wasn't a very good song anyway so who cares, we made Ringo sing it" but Stones played the HELL out of it. That opening guitar is just like WHOA undeniable

xpost lol Shakey I'm ploughing through London Years this afternoon :)

Peppermint Patty Hearst (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 23 March 2012 23:53 (2 years ago) Permalink

the early stuff is definitely best when it's in Keith's rock n roll wheelhouse, which sorta seems like Mick's wheelhouse too.
and Mick's harmonica in some of those early rockers is really good. makes me want to punch John Popper so hard, lol

Peppermint Patty Hearst (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 23 March 2012 23:54 (2 years ago) Permalink

xcept maybe not just rock but blues, because Heart of Stone is kinda slow tempo but it really works. But some of the really ballady songs early are just, ick, no.

Plus you have Brian Jones playing the hottest white guy slide guitar in the world circa '63 in the solo.

Jagger's an amazing harmonica player, one of my top three (Keef's said many times that Mick playing represents one of his few unguarded moments).

Exile in lolville (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Saturday, 24 March 2012 00:02 (2 years ago) Permalink

I saw Keef said that about Jagger's harmonica in his book, and I started paying attention to it more, and to other harmonica from other artists...Jagger really does blow lovely, long clear notes. Like the equivalent of hearing a really great sax player vs a mediocre one.

The early covers are incredible, but the live version of Little Queenie from Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out is my absolute favorite and will make my top 20

i only heard the UK version of the self-titled album (the one that kicks off with 'route 66') for the first time a couple of years ago. it's absolutely killer from start to finish, easily my favorite stones album along with 'let it bleed.'

I have now listened to my mono vinyl copies of the 1st LP and 12x5, thanks ILX

their early discography is SO confusing. I'm still totally mixed up about UK vs US editions.

I can think of one that will probably make my ballot -- one that hasn't been mentioned yet.

I wonder if anyone will vote for Goin' Home? I never can get with that one, don't know why....

Iago Galdston, Saturday, 24 March 2012 00:56 (2 years ago) Permalink

It's irritating that Spotify blocks that track (I guess because it's longer than 10 minutes?). But I think I still have my copy of Aftermath around here somewhere.

this is insane

if i submit a top 20 i'll regret it two minutes later

this seems harder than the beatles poll...or any poll i can remember.

mookie otm. my tentative top 20 yesterday went almost completely out the window today.

Y'all wanna hear something totally nuts? Okay.

I used to think Mick Jagger was a weak vocalist.

the cool thing is that this will no doubt uncover some gems i don't know -- in most of these polls i've already heard everything, it's just a matter of order

xpost that is nuts

Yeah, that was the distinction it took me a few years to figure out.

I can understand how he looks tacky and silly but the guy invented singing in a rock and roll band.

he also helped invent Bowie.

This interview is a mother load of material; it's his equivalent to Lennon's Playboy interviews.

side story about Ruby Tuesday.

I already didn't much like RT bc of the recorder-playing - I had to learn the recorder in primary school and haaated it, and I still get a bit of a twitch if I have to hear too much of it, lol.
But then my friend in college had this whole ritual she went through every year - when she was 16 her best friend committed suicide, and so on the anniversary of her death my friend would wear this girl's favorite color (yellow), buy a bunch of her favorite flowers (daffodils), and listen to her favorite song (Ruby Tuesday). She would play that song ALL day. ALL DAY.
And it drove me crazy because by then I had found out about Exile On Main STreet, and Let It Bleed; she had bought the Hot Rocks cd soley for RT, and it was the ONLY song she ever listened to on it bc of this bloody ritual.

it was all just kind of weird and annoying. We're still friends, she stopped with the ritual after a few years (at least publicly, for all I know she still does it).

But ugh everytime I hear it I just remember the piercing recorder notes bleeding through my dormitory wall and being very unhappy.

Things are not going well for me, pollwise. I've added 20 more songs to my list just today alone. Ffffffuuuuuuuuuu

Re-listening to "Let It Bleed" tonight. Fuckin good times here in my headphones.

Peppermint Patty Hearst (VegemiteGrrl), Saturday, 24 March 2012 03:13 (2 years ago) Permalink

And loving the Rolling Stone Jagger interview.

The stuff about Brian is sad/amusing. "I've never known a guy with less talent for songwriting." For someone so talented with so many instruments, the more I read about Brian the more he sounds like a total fucking nightmare to be around.

i know what #1 is tho

mookieproof, Saturday, 24 March 2012 03:56 (2 years ago) Permalink

I've got #1 and #2 at least in a nice waltz together. Possibly my 5 in a melty sort of way.

But listening to Let It Bleed was a bad idea, I want to add nearly the whole album to my 20.

xxpost there's flute in RT but I always heard some recorders or something in there too. Could be wrong, I've never actually looked at the instrument list.
