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

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

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.

What are ilxors feelings abt the really early stuff, covers and whatnot?

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 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

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.

one for the "most hated" sub-poll -- I hope that one gets enough ballots to run the results

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.

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 thought that was a flute in ruby tuesday. it sounds like flowers flowering in fast motion

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.

Peppermint Patty Hearst (VegemiteGrrl), Saturday, 24 March 2012 04:01 (2 years ago) Permalink

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.

Peppermint Patty Hearst (VegemiteGrrl), Saturday, 24 March 2012 04:02 (2 years ago) Permalink

Nope. Not flute. Recorder. Played by Cock Robin himself, Jonesy.

my ballot is going to be boringly 67-70 heavy

Not boring! Those are the good ones!

Peppermint Patty Hearst (VegemiteGrrl), Saturday, 24 March 2012 04:05 (2 years ago) Permalink

well obviously but it still feels less than authentic

deaths and oil painting graphics (blank), Saturday, 24 March 2012 04:08 (2 years ago) Permalink

I feel like the more time I spend listening to albums the more depressed I get about ever being able to narrow down to 20.

And have I ever thrown myself into anything with as much verve and dedication? doubtful.

Peppermint Patty Hearst (VegemiteGrrl), Saturday, 24 March 2012 04:10 (2 years ago) Permalink

For some reason, nothing from my favorite Stones album made my top 20. I wish I understood why I did that, but I think it's because I hear the album as a whole, and it seems weird hearing something from it in isolation.

xp Haha, yeah, I made a list of all possible ballot-worthy songs, thinking I wouldn't have 20, and I had 60. My ballot could easily change day-to-day...or hour-to-hour...but the more I listen to my #1, the more I'm convinced I did the right thing. And it's not one that immediately sprung to mind as a #1 (or even a top 10).

xpost I think that's what I'm wrestling with with a few of the Exile songs. I think of them with the songs around them so much that listening to them in isolation is kind of dissatisfying. Which doesn't bode well for them.

Yeah, wrt Exile, some of my favorite moments are things like "Just Wanna See His Face" or "Hip Shake," but they lose a lot out of context. Still, managed to get about 3 or 4 Exile songs on my ballot.

Rocks Off is such a KICKASS opener but I don't know how I feel about it just as a song song...and Tumbling Dice fucking rules but why does it feel so plodding away from the rest of the album.

I need a xanax.

Peppermint Patty Hearst (VegemiteGrrl), Saturday, 24 March 2012 04:25 (2 years ago) Permalink

i feel totally the same way about Exile!

i mean, it's hard seperating the individual tracks from the overall album experience
