In no particular order:

Monkey Man
Mother's Little Helper
You Can't Always Get What You Want
Wild Horses
Before They Make Me Run
Paint It Black
Sympathy For The Devil
Doo Doo Doo Heartbreaker
Happy
She's A Rainbow
Gimme Shelter
I dunno, there are so many others, Get Off My Cloud or Under My Thumb kinda tie for being on the list but I can't take any others off either.
Title: Re: What are your dozen favourite tracks by the Rolling Stones?
Post by: Radioactive Rod Whitenack on February 14, 2011, 08:06:09 PM
1) Street Fighting Man
2) Paint It Black
3) Tumbling Dice (and basically ALL of "Exile on Main St.", including--)
4) Happy
5) 19th Nervous Breakdown
6) Gimme Shelter
7) Dead Flowers
8) Get Off Of My Cloud
9) Let's Spend the Night Together
10) Under My Thumb
11) Ruby Tuesday
12) Not Fade Away

Plus a dozen others. It's funny, however, that most of our "essential" lists don't include the most popular, most played tracks. For example, I could go the rest of my life without hearing "I Can't Get No Satisfaction", "Jumpin' Jack Flash" or "Honkey Tonk Women". Those are great songs, no question, but they've suffered from mass over exposure, while a lot of great material has been overlooked.

Attention Stones fans who are also Ramones fans: I just picked up an issue of Mojo magazine with the Ramones on the cover that includes a CD called "1,2,3,4! The Roots of the Ramones" which is an awesome compilation of songs that inspired the Ramones.  But the first track is something I've never heard before as a lifelong Ramones fan. Apparently the Ramones were going to record a cover of the Stone's "Street Fighting Man", but Joey was ill that day in the studio, so Walter Lure of Johnny Thunders and the Heartbreakers stepped in on vocals, backed by Johnny, Dee Dee and Tommy, and the result is an awesome punk rock cover of "Street Fighting Man".

After a little on-line research, I discovered there really is a version of "Street Fighting Man" with Joey Ramone on vocals, but it was only released on the extended edition of the "Too Tough Too Die" CD. I always wanted to pick up the remastered CD's with all the extra, unreleased tracks but with me it's either "buy 'em all or buy none of 'em" and I could never afford to do that since I already own a massive amount of Ramones material including the original albums and all the boxed sets.

The STONES are a fantastic band/group. With all the line-up changes through the decades, each member has added their own signature to the music. Which makes the STONES so unique. The band has a library of great songs and albums.

I know my "dozen fave Stones songs" list is sorely lacking in rockers (which I love too, of course) but these just really stand out to me. In no particular order - other than perhaps to make a playlist:

 1 Paint It Black 1966
 2 The Singer, Not the Song 1965
 3 Blue Turns To Grey 1965
 4 Out Of Tears 1994
 5 No Use In Crying 1981

Thanks! I kinda thought of all the (released) songs that I really loved most, (including rockers) and then removed songs from that list (of about 55 songs) until I had only songs with the most captivating (to me) feeling to the music (including vocal melody). I know in looks like I just had a really sad day and then made the list (even though I left out their song "Sad Day"!) but my day was quite fine, and it was really just about what songs felt most magical to me.  8) Introspective songs are often more powerful to me, but maybe I should make a list of my 12 favorite Stones rockers next!

Let it Bleed was my first (and favorite) Stones album. It has such a down to earth vibe to it. The only '60s  Stones album I didn't care for was Satanic Majesty's Request. It was so pretentious, even Keith Richards calls it "a pile of sh*t". Everything else was pretty much godlike.

Keep in mind though that artists themselves are not often very good judges of their own material. Keith Richards himself didn't like Satisfaction as recorded. He wanted to replace the fuzz box enhanced lead guitar with brass of all things! Keith was opposed to releasing Satisfaction the way it was recorded as a single but was outvoted by the other Stones.

  He was right about this. The Stones didn't have to follow the Beatles into the putrid psychedelic era. Pretentious, soulless, lacking in balls...what else? Sgt. Pepper itself was extremely overrated. "A Day in the Life" was the only song that rang true. Gimme "Exile on Main St." anytime.

Granted I much prefer the output of the Beatles from the 1963-66 years to their output from the 1967-70 years. But a lot of good music came out of the "psychedelic" era however defined. Among the bands I really like from that era are the Doors, Jefferson Airplane, Jimi Hendrix Experience, Spirit, Vanilla Fudge and Pink Floyd. Of course with the possible exception of the Doors I don't necessarily like everything those bands recorded.

With respect to Their Satanic Majesties Request specifically though, it was about the fifth Stones' album I bought but the first one I bought upon its release. Admittedly it was certainly the Rolling Stones' most experimental and thus controversial LP. It was critically panned for the most part upon its release and for years thereafter. Parts of it were painfully maudlin British dance-hall send-offs, e.g. Sing This All Together and On With the Show while other parts were nothing but self-indulgent, navel gazing crap, e.g. Gomper. The problem was that the band was not only distracted by the legal problems emanating from their drug busts, but they also lacked any semblance of the discipline required to do their jobs. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Brian Jones just wandered into the studio whenever they felt like it and they brought an entourage of girlfriends and hangers-on with them. Their manager and producer Andrew Loog Oldham found the job of getting the band members to focus and apply themselves in the studio to be completely beyond him and simply quit in disgust. In Mick Jagger's own words:

Quote from: Mick Jagger
There's a lot of rubbish on Satanic Majesties. Just too much time on our hands, too many drugs, no producer to tell us, "Enough already, thank you very much, now can we just get on with this song?" Anyone let loose in the studio will produce stuff like that. There was simply too much hanging around. It's like believing everything you do is great and not having any editing.

Indeed! Artists in any field need occasional or even frequent doses of discipline, whether self-imposed or externally imparted. Otherwise self-indulgence tends to creep into the mix with disastrous results.

But the LP still contained a bunch of really good tracks, ones I still very much enjoy today:

She's a Rainbow
2000 Light Years from Home
In Another Land
The Lantern
Citadel
2000 Man

I therefore think that Their Satanic Majesties Request is the Stones' most underrated album.

Gimme "Exile on Main St." anytime.

I also bought Exile on Main Street upon its release and I was very much disappointed. I found it muddy, disjointed, overwrought with blaring annoying horns and rather than simply singing the songs, Jagger was playing games with his voice throughout trying to sound black or something. "Oh cut out the posturing Mick and just sing the song!" It's a double LP and I like a whopping total of one song, that being Torn and Frayed! I therefore have to say it's the Stones' most overrated album. Moreover Exile also served to usher in a three album nadir for the Stones which included Goat's Head Soup and then It's Only Rock 'n Roll.

In any event, here's how I rate the Stones' albums from the 20th century:

1. Flowers
2. December's Children
3. Rolling Stones Now
4. Sticky Fingers
5. Beggars' Banquet
6. Let It Bleed
7. Their Satanic Majesties Request
8. Some Girls
9. Steel Wheels 
10. Between the Buttons(U.S. release)
11. Voodoo Lounge
12. Dirty Work
13. Out of Our Heads
14. Tattoo You
15. Black and Blue
16. Emotional Rescue
17. Aftermath(U.S. release)
18. Bridges to Babylon
18. England's Newest Hitmakers
19. 12 x 5
20. Exile on Main Street
21. Goat's Head Soup
22. It's Only Rock 'n Roll
23. Undercover

 We have completely opposite tastes. I hate every song on SMR except Citadel. I never considered Hendrix or the Doors psychedelic. They were  rock bands with an artistic edge. Sorry, but Sgt. Peppers kitchen-sink overproduction killed it for me. The White Album completely made up for it. THAT was brilliant. My favorite band, of that era, was the Velvet Underground.  They were innovative without being overbearing. Then, the Stooges, the MC5....all the way to Patti Smith, the Ramones, the Clash, Sex Pistols, Misfits, White Stripes (talk about stripped down). Of course, Dylan was the master of gimic- free production values. He would walk into a studio, and wind up with a masterpiece in a week or so. I must admit, all this talk is futile. Music, like politics and religion, are what many people are obsessively passionate about. You will always like what represents your mindset, and I will go back and blast my Ramones records. Fair enough?

Btw, Mick Jagger "trying to sound black or something" did not start with "Exile". You must have missed their first albums. The early Stones were ALL about black R&B, blues, soul, etc. Also, I thought the first few Beatles were too light and "boy-bandish" for me. I'll trade their hand-holding yeah, yeah, yeahs for the Kinks' "You Really Got Me" or the Who's "My Generation".

You're right. His clowning around with his voice first cropped up on some of the tracks from Beggars Banquet. It wasn't too bad yet though.

You must have missed their first albums. The early Stones were ALL about black R&B, blues, soul, etc.


I did not miss those albums. I had them all before Beggars Banquet was released. And yes, the Stones covered lots of R&B, blues and soul songs on those albums. But Mick Jagger just sung them straight. He wasn't constricting his vocal cords trying to sound like some other guy. Listen. His singing is honest and straight forward in these early covers:

That's because you decided a priori that you don't like psychedelic music. Therefore since you like the Jimi Hendrix Experience and the Doors, they can't be psychedelic in your mind.

Well more so than any other band, the Jimi Hendrix Experience defined psychedelic rock in 1967. And the Doors were close behind. So you like some psychedelic music. Live with it.

It's interesting as well that most appraisals of Their Satanic Majesties Request conclude with this or a similar statement:

Quote from: Wikipedia
Following the album's release, the Rolling Stones abandoned their psychedelic style for a stripped-down return to their roots in blues music.

It's one of those inaccuracies that's so frequently repeated that it acquires a life of its own. Worse yet it comes to be regarded as true!

But the Stones absolutely, positively did NOT return to their roots as a band playing stripped down blues after their release of Their Satanic Majesties Request!

1. Yes, their 1968 LP Beggars Banquet contained a number of very bluesy tracks, e.g. Prodigal Son, Stray Cat Blues, Parachute Woman, etc. But the following tracks from 1968 were easily trippy enough to have been on Their Satanic Majesties Request:

 Sympathy for the Devil
 Salt of the Earth
 Child of the Moon

2. And stripped down!!! What was so stripped down about their next three LPs? What was so stripped down about You Can't Always Get What You Want with its full-fledged boys' choir and all the (dreadful in my opinion) horns that started to appear on Sticky Fingers? In fact up to and including their 1969 tour the Stones appeared as a six piece with Ian Stewart off to the side on keyboards. Beginning in 1972 though they were forced to become a travelling circus with three or four horn players, about three backup singers and two keyboard players one of whom was manipulating the keys of a mellotron.

So stripped down blues after Their Satanic Majesties Request my ass! I want to strangle the dilettantes and merely casual Stones' fans who parrot this preposterous lie. I'd love to see a stripped down Stones band in concert these days, but methinks all my hope's in vain.

When it comes to self-indulgent, the 8:22 in length Revolution 9 from the White Album takes the cake.

You just prefer lightweight music. Who wouldn't love "Helter Skelter", Happiness is a Warm Gun", "Back in the U.S.S.R.", etc.?

While Helter Skelter does have an edge, that's about all it has. And the rest of the White Album is maudlin and/or lightweight, especially in comparison to their earlier gems such as Rubber Soul and Revolver.

Most of the Stones songs you mentioned (wjth the exemption of the heinous "Child of the Moon") were not psychedelic.  At one point, both bands discovered Dylan. He was the catalyst for the more intellectual approach to lyrics. The Stones best albums started with "Let it Bleed" and ended with the brilliantly alive "Some Girls". You never mention anything past the sixties. How about Bowie (caution, some horn use), Lou Reed, Clash, Sex Pistols. As a matter of fact, "Never Mind the Bullocks" is an example of perfection in rock n roll production. Chris Thomas sharpened the band into a sharp knife cutting through the excesses of the stale prog-rock flab. Why do you think that everybody is wrong, except yourself? Btw, "Flowers" was just an outtakes and b-sides  album released in the U.S.  to cash in on their success. Still, it was much better that SMR.

I hope that I'M not being called a "casual Stones fan". I've owned every record from the first to "Tattoo You" (plus many bootlegs and singles). I've seen them live on many occasions starting with the '72 Exile tour. This is my 50th year as a Stones fan. You just may be the stick in the mud listening only to the mono stuff. I loved that and the harder edged 70s material. Mick Taylor was my favorite "fifth Stone".Their last album was a straight blues album. Even you might like it. My favorite British invasion band, though, were always The Kinks. Try to find one psychedelic bandwagon track on any of their albums.

Doom and Gloom

How about Bowie (caution, some horn use), Lou Reed, Clash, Sex Pistols.

And never is a long time. Yes, I really like David Bowie, and I like Lou Reed and the Sex Pistols as well. I dislike the Clash though because I think they betrayed the nihilist spirit of punk by injecting a political element into their music.

Here moreover is a very quick list of other (largely) post-sixties rock artists I really like:

Jethro Tull
Blondie
Led Zeppelin
Pink Floyd
Roxy Music
Emerson, Lake & Palmer
Santana
B-52's
Alice Cooper
Supertramp
Patti Smith Group
King Crimson
Gowan
Mott the Hoople

Oh come on. My personal favourite Forty Licks that I posted on the first page of this thread had lots of tracks on it from after the sixties.

40 Licks doesn't even count as a proper Stones album. It's a greatest hits compilation.  It's just a grab bag of hits. Its unfair to compare them to a singular achievement. They are packaged to appeal to "casual fans" who are too lazy to get the original albums the tracks appeared on. How about post sixties artists? I mean bands beyond 1969....Nirvana, the Misfits, Bowie,  Mott the Hoople, the Ramones, the Clash, Sex Pistols etc.

Why do you think that everybody is wrong, except yourself?

And what pray tell is wrong with challenging conventional wisdom with contradictory evidence?

Most of the Stones songs you mentioned (wjth the exemption of the heinous "Child of the Moon") were not psychedelic.

Well the other two I mentioned in the same breath weren't back to the basics or blues either. Sympathy for the Devil with its African tribal drums and chimp noises "Oooooo, oooooo" would have actually fit very nicely into the spirit of Their Satanic Majesties Request.

Mick Taylor was my favorite "fifth Stone".

He's actually my least favourite fifth Stone. Quite simply the only Stones' album on which he was fully featured that I really like was his first one, Sticky Fingers. I didn't like the next three from Exile to It's Only Rock 'n Roll at all.

Their last album was a straight blues album. Even you might like it.

When did I say or even imply that I didn't like the blues? I have a good collection of blues albums, compilations and box sets. Check out some of the 21st century ones from Fat Possum Records:

Btw, "Flowers" was just an outtakes and b-sides  album released in the U.S.  to cash in on their success.

Irrelevant. Most of the tracks were on no other U.S./Canadian album and it was really good.

You just may be the stick in the mud listening only to the mono stuff.

Not so! I'm a hard-core stereo buff. And I particularly dote on hard left/hard right separation.

What!?!? Pot meet kettle. You implied that I'm a dilettante and or casual Stones fan that should be strangled.

You said I was "insane" before I made that post, and "dilettante" isn't much of an insult in comparison.

What about the other great bands I mentioned? Have you even heard of them?

Yes. I addressed those artists and provided a short list of my own at the bottom of post #104. But you're throwing too many names for me to comment upon from one sentence to the next.

40 Licks doesn't even count as a proper Stones album. It's a greatest hits compilation. It's just a grab bag of hits.

Yeah, so? I never compared the Forty Licks collection to anything. I simply listed the tracks I would have selected in compiling a Forty Licks box set to demonstrate that not all the Stones' tracks I like are from the sixties.

What bands have you listened to beyond the late sixties?  1970 thru. 2018, name 'em. What are your views on iconic bands like Nirvana, Ramones, Clash, New York Dolls, Talking Heads, Bowie,  Misfits etc? As for mono vs stereo...
I much prefer mono when the original mix is supervised by the band in mono. I remember trading in my stereo "You Really Got Me" (Kinks album) to buy the stereo " upgrade". It was dreadful. The power of the original had been emasculated by some studio hack who had no idea what he was doing. They put ALL the music on one channel, then stuck vocals and handclaps/tambourine on the other. That happened  to early Stones, as well

Nirvana - Dislike except for The Man Who Sold the World.
New York Dolls - No opinion.
Talking Heads - I like them a lot.
Misfits - No opinion, but I like the name. I might have to check them out.

But what's your point in throwing all these bands at me from one sentence to the next? How is any of this relevant to which Stones' (or even Beatles') albums are the best?

You never mention anything past the sixties.

It's ironic that over the last fifteen years or so I've been disagreeing on various music forums with the contingent that says "The Stones haven't recorded anything good since 1972 (or else 1980)". In response I've been posting my list of all the post-1980 Stones' tracks I really like.

You on the other hand are criticizing me for liking too much of their early stuff. It seems that I always end up disagreeing with the extremists at either end.

  This is only my personal opinion, mind you. From 63 to 67, the Stones were an incredible singles band. Classic hit after hit....incredible era. 68 brought their classic album period. Starting with Beggars Banquet and ending with the brilliant Some Girls, most of their  lps were excellent. My personal fave Stones albums are:
                     1.) Let it Bleed
                     2.) Exile on Main St.
                    3.) Sticky Fingers
                    4.) Beggars Banquet
                    5.) Some Girls
                    6.) Aftermath (14 track UK version)

   As a fellow Stones fan, you should understand how passionate we can be about their music. I don't mean you any personal insult. Let's just celebrate that we at least agree they've been an incredible force of nature, regardless of personal favorite phase.

  To be honest, that's the only song I'm not familiar with. It must be after " Some Girls". That's that last Stones album I liked. My wildcard song would be "Starf*ck*r" from Goats Head Soup ("Star Star" in the U.S). Cool track from a so so album.

While fifty year anniversaries may seem to be a tremendous achievement for most bands (and people in general), to the Rolling Stones fifty years is much too pedestrian a benchmark to be meaningful. By 1964 the Stones were really rolling and here is a list of big 55th anniversaries to which fans of the band and music historians can look forward this year:

January 17 - Release of their first EP:

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/c/c6/RSEP1.jpg/220px-RSEP1.jpg)

February - Release of Not Fade Away which reached #3 on the U.K. charts thus becoming their first top ten hit in the U.K.

April 16 - Release of The Rolling Stones their first LP in the U.K.

May 30 - Release of the LP with the title expanded to The Rolling Stones (England's Newest Hitmakers) in the U.S.A.:

June - Release of It's All Over Now the Stones' first #1 hit in the U.K.

June 3 - The Stones appear on Hollywood Palace hosted by Dean Martin, their first American television appearance:

https://youtu.be/a5LRyUAY3QQ (https://youtu.be/a5LRyUAY3QQ)

June 5 - The Stones kick off their first American concert tour with a show in San Bernardino, California. They open with Not Fade Away and the set includes the rarely heard Beautiful Delilah number:

https://youtu.be/dvrAQrGWfwI (https://youtu.be/dvrAQrGWfwI)

June 20 - The tour comes to an end with two shows at Carnegie Hall in New York.

September - Release of Time Is on My Side which reached #6 on the U.S. Billboard chart thus becoming their first top ten hit in the States.

October 25 - The Stones first appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show:

https://youtu.be/Kb5hMrBAtf8 (https://youtu.be/Kb5hMrBAtf8)

Following the show Sullivan reputedly said “I promise you they’ll never be back on our show. It took me seventeen years to build this show and I’m not going to have it destroyed in a matter of weeks.” But after having a chance to look at the ratings he sent the Stones this message "Received hundreds of letters from parents complaining about you, but thousands from teenagers saying how much they enjoyed your performance.”

October 29 - The Stones appear on the T.A.M.I. Show concert film:

So speaking of 50+ year anniversaries, The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus was filmed just over fifty years ago on 11 December 1968. The production was originally conceived by Mick Jagger as a concert show to be aired on the BBC to promote sales of the Stones' new Beggars Banquet LP. Performers included the Who, Jethro Tull, Taj Mahal, Marianne Faithfull plus a "super" (disaster?) group called the Dirty Mac consisting of John Lennon (guitar & vocals), Eric Clapton (lead guitar), Keith Richards (bass), Mitch Mitchell (drums) and Yoko Ono (shrieks). The Stones had evidently considered Led Zeppelin for a part in the show but decided that Jethro Tull would be a more interesting act. The Stones were to be the closing act.

(https://www.rollingstone.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/rs-7766-107425464-624x420-1352348266.jpg?crop=900:600&width=440)

Filming started at 2:00 PM. The Who performed early on and they were tight, energetic and simply great overall. Nothing about the production went as smoothly as hoped though. Everything took much longer than expected and the Stones accompanied by pianist Nicky Hopkins didn't get to play until 5:00 AM the next morning. By this time the studio audience was exhausted and just wanted the show to end.*While Mick Jagger seemed able to continue on nervous energy, *otherwise the Stones were dead tired and Brian Jones in particular was zonked out and barely conscious, Moreover they hadn't played live since finishing up their European concert tour in the spring of 1967. The Stones didn't think their performance overall was up to par, especially compared to that of the Who.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=msLpn4r-Zw0# (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=msLpn4r-Zw0#)

They therefore shelved the project. The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus didn't see the light of day until October 1996 when it was released as a historical document on video and as a CD. Here's the track list:

1.   "Mick Jagger's introduction of Rock and Roll Circus"       0:25
2.   "Entry of the Gladiators" (Julius Fučík)       0:55
3.   "Mick Jagger's introduction of Jethro Tull"       0:11
4.   "A Song for Jeffrey†" (Ian Anderson)   Jethro Tull   3:26
5.   "Keith Richards' introduction of The Who"       0:07
6.   "A Quick One, While He's Away" (Pete Townshend)   The Who   7:33
7.   "Over the Waves" (Juventino Rosas)       0:45
8.   "Ain't That a Lot of Love" (Homer Banks, Willie Dean "Deanie" Parker)   Taj Mahal   3:48
9.   "Charlie Watts' introduction of Marianne Faithfull"       0:06
10.   "Something Better" (Gerry Goffin, Barry Mann)   Marianne Faithfull   2:32
11.   "Mick Jagger's and John Lennon's introduction of The Dirty Mac"       1:05
12.   "Yer Blues" (Lennon–McCartney)   The Dirty Mac   4:27
13.   "Whole Lotta Yoko" (Yoko Ono)   The Dirty Mac, Yoko Ono, and Ivry Gitlis   4:49
14.   "John Lennon's introduction of The Rolling Stones/Jumpin' Jack Flash"   The Rolling Stones   3:35
15.   "Parachute Woman"   The Rolling Stones   2:59
16.   "No Expectations"   The Rolling Stones   4:13
17.   "You Can't Always Get What You Want"   The Rolling Stones   4:24
18.   "Sympathy for the Devil"   The Rolling Stones   8:49
19.   "Salt of the Earth"   The Rolling Stones   4:57

(https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/81eUDGQxLAL._SX355_.jpg)

The Stones evidently also performed Confessin' the Blues and Route 66 on stage that morning but these numbers didn't find their way onto the 1996 release.

"Black girls just wanna f*ck all night long, and I don't have that much jam"

Hardly. The Rolling Stones have made a career out of rankling the straights/polite society from day one. At the start of their careers it was pretty easy. Being arrested for public urination with Mick Jagger remarking "We piss anywhere man!" served to get them front page coverage. But such shenanigans soon seemed very tame and they had to set the bar higher.

Ergo dressing up in drag for the rear sleeve of Have You Seen Your Mother, Baby, Standing in the Shadow? in 1966:

(https://i1101.photobucket.com/albums/g434/Balticprince/General%20Album%203/General%20Album%203001/Have%20You%20Seen_zpsxvm1kqnb.jpg)

And later that same year Brian Jones modelling an SS uniform in Anita's company:

(https://i1101.photobucket.com/albums/g434/Balticprince/General%20Album%203/General%20Album%203001/Brian-Jones-Nazi-uniform_zpsqxeyctgt.jpg)

Talk about frothing outrage in the press!

Then of course their spoofing of U.K. passport terminology with the Their Satanic Majesties Request LP in 1967.

By 1975 though they had to resort to deliberately targetting whatever the cause du jour happened to be. Witness their advertising campaign for the Black and Blue LP:

(https://i1101.photobucket.com/albums/g434/Balticprince/General%20Album%203/General%20Album%203001/Black%201_zpswn2dpshg.jpeg)

Of course they knew full well that their advertising displays would prompt enraged protests from women's groups and hand-wringers everywhere:

(https://i1101.photobucket.com/albums/g434/Balticprince/General%20Album%203/General%20Album%203001/Black%202_zpssu908rde.jpg)

But the ensuing publicity is of course what the Stones wanted so they snickered all the way to the bank.

Then there's these widely condemned urinals patterned after the iconic Stones' logo designed by Dutch artist Meike van Schijndel:

(https://edge.alluremedia.com.au/uploads/businessinsider/2014/11/kisses2.jpg)

I was taken aback but bemused myself when I encountered these urinals in a Vilnius casino in 2003.

 ;D

These days though it's really easy for the Stones to offend the Establishment since it's now dominated by young people. All they have to do is continue rocking and count their money to elicit annoyed protests of "Why don't they retire?" from the younger generation.

The Top Ten Rolling Stones Moments!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F39tLtFub90 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F39tLtFub90)

The list contains some inaccuracies, e.g. Ed Sullivan wanted to ban the Stones from further appearances on his show after their first appearance and not as a result of the 1967 appearance where they performed Let's Spend the Night Together. An interesting list nonetheless!

 Fun fact, the real title of Star, Star is "Starf*cker". They had to change it for the American release. Prudish bastards.

It was nearly fifty years ago on November 23rd during their late 1969 concert tour of the United States that the Rolling Stones made their final appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show

Evidently their "appearance" was something of a fraud:

Quote from: Wikipedia
Gimme Shelter opened the show. The show closed with Love in Vain and Honky Tonk Women. The band mimed to prerecorded tracks and Jagger sang live. The performance was recorded at the CBS studios in Los Angeles and edited into the show to appear like they were in New York.


Nonetheless, here are clips of a couple of the songs they performed:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P80uH3bwCt4 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P80uH3bwCt4)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8UuCqt5-28 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8UuCqt5-28)

Incidentally it was during this tour that the Stones started billing themselves as "The greatest rock and roll band in the world!", a title first bestowed on the band by tour manager Sam Cutler at their concert in London's Hyde Park the previous July. Rock critic Robert Christgau would a few years later label this tour as "history's first mythic rock and roll tour".

It was fifty years ago on the 6th of December that the infamous concert at the Altamont Speedway in California would bring the curtain down on flower power and the love generation:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQzNtYsf5D4# (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQzNtYsf5D4#)

Compelling evidence indeed that hasty last minute planning of a free concert in California that would end up attracting 300,000 music fans and sundry LSD and amphetamine fuelled hippies, the budget driven hiring of drunken Hells Angels to provide security and a collection of rock bands including the Rolling Stones don't mix. Despite the resultant deaths including that of Meredith Hunter, things could have turned out even worse. Hunter was according to his own girlfriend enraged, irrational and "so high (on methamphetamines) that he could barely walk". Who did he intend to shoot with the revolver? Angels, Stones, or was he just going to start shooting?

Nonetheless it was fitting that the Rolling Stones who had made a career out of being the "bad boys of rock" were not just present but were key players at the denouement of the Woodstock generation.

 :-\

December 1969 was also the month of release of the LP Let It Bleed which marked the demarcation point between the Brian Jones era of the Stones and the Mick Taylor era. Neither fellow played much on the LP. Brian Jones played autoharp on You Got the Silver and added percussion to Midnight Rambler but that was it. Mick Taylor meanwhile played guitar on Live With Me and slide guitar on Country Honk but that too was it.

(https://i1101.photobucket.com/albums/g434/Balticprince/General%20Album%203/General%20Album%203001/Let%20It%20Bleed_zpsmca5jiyt.jpg)

The LP contained several tracks still regarded as all-time classics:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4V1SvYwkVtk# (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4V1SvYwkVtk#)

What's ironic is that back in their early years in 1963-64 the Stones had repeatedly insisted that they were not a rock band but a "rhythm 'n blues" band. Yet beginning with the 1966 release of Aftermath, the Stones had by December of 1969 released five LPs that had stretched the boundaries of rock music. They were of course also billing themselves as the "World's Greatest Rock & Roll Band" by this time.

 I really love "Let it Bleed". It was the first non greatest hits Stones album I bought. I must agree that Mick, Keef, Charlie, etc.  WE'RE the greatest rock band ever. However, they are now a "legacy" band. They haven't released a great album in 40 years, but continue to put on incredible live shows. I never want them to quit. They ARE rock 'n' roll.

I was listening to Monkey Man earlier tonight. Remember the scene in Goodfellas with that song? Classic.

I also listened to Heart of Stone earlier. I know it's not on Let it Bleed, but still great song.

It was 55 years ago on 31 December 1964 that the T.A.M.I. Show hit movie theater screens across the United States:

(https://www.filmposters.com/images/posters/21062.jpg)

The footage for the concert film had been taken from concerts held at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium on October 28th and 29th.

The release of the T.A.M.I. Show would prove to be a watershed moment in the Rolling Stones' climb to superstardom. While the Stones were already nipping at the heels of the Beatles in United Kingdom popularity polls, they were just one of many British Invasion bands here in North America. In fact the Stones may have been about fifth in popularity in the United States at the time when it came to British Invasion bands, well behind the Beatles and the Dave Clark Five and just below the Animals and Gerry & the Pacemakers.

But that changed after the release of the T.A.M.I. Show. The Stones had in October been given the unenviable task of closing out the show right after the performance of James Brown & the Famous Flames:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WMqM4lZGiK0# (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WMqM4lZGiK0#)

Now how were the Stones to top that? Well they pulled out all stops in trying. The Stones had previously done little more than stand there and play (like the Beatles) in their concerts. But coming on after James Brown at the T.A.M.I. Show they did their best to copy his showmanship. Mick Jagger in particular did his best to add more lively dance moves to his repertoire as lead singer:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQkqs1_laf4# (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQkqs1_laf4#)

And it worked! The Stones' popularity in the States absolutely exploded in 1965.

My older sister and I took in the T.A.M.I. Show at a theater in downtown Detroit in early 1965. Unfortunately I can't say that any of the individual performances stuck out for me and I quickly forgot which artists I had seen that day. All I remembered was that the movie was fun!

Then sometime one afternoon around 1974-75 I was watching clips from the T.A.M.I. show on the TV in the living room. My very old school father (who already happened to be fairly drunk) ducked in from the dining room to see what I was watching. The Rolling Stones were playing I'm Alright. One disgusted glance at the TV was all it took for him to retreat back to the dining room with the concise appraisal "Like s__t you alright!" Say what you will about our parents' generation, but they could be plain-spoken and frank.

The Rolling Stones have released a couple of tracks they recorded back in 1973 during their Goat's Head Soup sessions as new singles:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSpGnZmGWBk# (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSpGnZmGWBk#)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fl0COtEG-TM# (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fl0COtEG-TM#)

Jimmy Page guests on Scarlet.

Both forgettable in my opinion. They embody precisely what I don't like about their last two LPs during the Mick Taylor era (Goat's Head Soup and It's Only Rock 'n Roll), that being jangling guitars without any kind of a hook taking the tracks anywhere.

Quite the come down from the Living in a Ghost Town single they released in April I'd say:
