5.0 étoiles sur 5 Probably The Best Tracks The Stones Have Ever Recorded, July 20 2004
Ce commentaire est de: Wild Horses (Audio CD)
This is one of the best CD releases in the entire Stones collection. The tracks were recorded during club dates and they are definitely some of the best recordings of the band ever. It is worth buying just for the incredible Lisa Fischer vocals on Gimmie Shelter. Although you can hear this on the Maxx DVD, this is the only CD recording where Lisa really hits it. Mick and Charlie are outstanding on this recording of Gimmie Shelter as well. Tumbling Dice and Live With Me are also outstanding versions.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Most Underrated Stones Album, July 19 2004
Ce commentaire est de: Goats Head Soup (Audio CD)
Goat's Head Soup was originally released Aug 31, 1973 and went to #1 in both the US and the UK. I have found it quite rewarding that over the years this one has gained respect and continues to appear in many rankings of greatest rock albums. Personally, I've always like this one a lot. It's got the usual megahits; Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo (Heartbreaker), Angie, and Star#$!@% (a hit as a single in Europe and Japan), an incredible jam in Hide Your Love, great intro in 100 Years Ago, part 2 of the voodoo chronicles in Dancing With Mr. D., solid rocker Silver Train, and oh yeah, Winter, Coming Down Again, and Can You Hear The Music too. Most people know the music, so in my reviews I try to give you data on the sessions and interesting facts connected with the songs and the album. Here we go:
There were 23 songs recorded during the Goat's Head Soup sessions between Nov 25-30 and Dec 6-21, 1972 at Dynamic Sound Studios in Kingston, Jamaica. Only 8 of them made it onto Goat's Head Soup. Keith had made strong connections with the Jamaican reggae musicians and had recently bought a house in Jamaica, so he was the driving force behind the sessions. The band included Mick Taylor, Nicky Hopkins (piano), Billy Preston (organ), Bobby Keys (sax), Chuck Finley (trumpet), Jim Horn (horn), and of course Ian Stewart on piano. Sonny Rollins played sax on Waiting On A Friend. Final mixes were done at Island Recording in London May 28 - Jun 20, 1973. Hide Your Love was recorded in separate sessions on May 23 & 26 at Olympic Studios in London. Silver Train was recorded during the mixing at Island in London.
Interesting notes include:
.....The UK version of the album had one verse censored and deleted from Star#$!@% (which appears as Star Star in text on the album) while the US version had the line "I bet you keep your pussy clean" deleted. Both record distributors (US and UK) refused to allow the line "giving head to Steve McQueen" until the Stones got McQueen to sign a release (he said he appreciated the publicity). (The entire song with all the censored lyrics are on this release, or at least they are on my copy.)
.....Short And Curlies was not released until 1974 on the album It's Only Rock 'n' Roll.
.....Tops and Waiting On A Friend were not released until 1981 on the album Tattoo You, after which Waiting On A Friend was also released as a single.
.....there are still 12 tracks from these sessions that have not been released (although some have been bootlegged) They are Criss Cross (Save Me), Separately, You Should Have Seen Her Ass, Four And In, Give Us A Break, First Thing, Miami, Man-Eating Woman, Brown Leaves, After Muddy & Charlie, Jamaica I, and Zabadoo.
This information comes from "It's Only Rock And Roll: The Ultimate Guide To The Rolling Stones" by Karnbach and Bernson and from my own collection, with some of the notes from Davis' "Old Gods Almost Dead." Both books are available from amazon.com.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Need 65 Licks +, July 19 2004
40 Licks was released worldwide on October 1, 2002. Obviously, there are 40 tracks including 4 new ones (the single Don't Stop, Stealing My Heart, Keys To Your Love, and Keith's Losing My Touch). This one is the 22nd compilation album the Stones have released. It is the 19th compilation in the UK and the 9th in the US. There are lots of opinions about what should and should have been included/left off (there are *25* single releases that were not included). Remember, if anyone ever releases the entire Stones catalog as a box set it will have to be packaged in a trunk that comes with a dolly to get it out of the store. Since everybody knows the songs anyway, how about if I list what is on it from when for you?
These songs are the most popular from the Rolling Stones Records releases. Here are the original US and UK release dates of each song (US release and re-release dates were often different during this period):

Gina Gerhson absolutely incredible. Do you remember the first time you heard (take your pick) Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, The Ramones, Patti Smith, White Stripes.......well, here it is again - that same feeling - rock and roll guts.....so it doesn't matter what the other reviewers say...this one has it and the only way you will really know is if you listen to it yourself. If you like real rock and roll, real intensity, no holds barred.....get it.
The band - actually playing (versus the movie band) is Gina Gershon vocals, Gina Volpe guitar piano backup vocals, Cheri Lovedog guitar, Sara Lee bass, Samantha Maloney drums (on all songs except Studiostar). Studiostar was done by Gina Gershon, Linda Perry, and Patty Schemel. All songs were written by Cheri Lovedog (with help from Grace Chapman on Every Six Minutes and Stephen Trask on Bitter Pill).....except Studiostar, which was written by Gina Gershon and Linda Perry.
The band in the movie is Gina Gershon (Jackie) vocals & guitar, Lori Petty (Faith) lead guitar, Shelley Cole (Sally) drums, and Drea de Matteo (Tracy) bass.
At least this is the info on the CD linear notes and on the web movie sites. If the truth is different, it doesn't seem to be out there yet.

Ce commentaire est de: Welcome to Mooseport (DVD)
Hackman is perfect in the role of a newly retired (and divorced) President taking on the job of a small town mayor only to come up against the stereotypical small town honesty (with plenty of naivete thrown in) Romano in full blown "Everybody Loves Raymond" character. Romano has a cherry script as the local plumber who has never done anything negative ever....but just can't seem to make a commitment to his veterinary girlfriend - who should be finaniace....and therein lies the depth of the script.
Don't be surprised at the horror, terror, violence fans who don't like this one....this is about good and honest things that some of us actually still believe in. Hackman, Romano, and Tierney all do a great job of providing a really really nice story with a strong dose of decency.....nice to see one like this coming out of Hollywood for a change.

You get exactly what you are promised in this one, which is more than the US/UK release.....Honky Tonk Women is added!. Given we probably all bought it due to the curosity factor, of course, no one who bought this really should be bitching too much.
The last track is the original March-June 1968 mix that became the classic with Jagger, Richards, Wyman, & Watts plus Rocky Dijon's congas, Nicky Hopkins' piano and Marianne Faithful and Anita Pallenberg adding vocals. Then you get 6 remixes, 2 each by the Neptunes, Fatboy Slim, and Full Phatt.
The Neptunes pair is by far the best....leaving Mick to do some acapella work works great plus they had enough sense not to try to outdo the original length (something Fatboy Slim should have considered as his full length remix exceeds the original by more than 2 minutes.....without adding significantly to any acoustic experiences of the Stones original mix....so what is the point of a remix again?
Full Phatt does a decent job on both.....the first is better in my opinion but both are good enough they should have run in second place, not third.
Finally, this would be much better if there were more of the classic recordings of the song that have already been done with perhaps the version from Maxx or one of the other DVDs.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 For Collectors Only!, July 18 2004
This is the UK singles box set. It includes the Stones' British singles and EPs (extended play) in the order of their release. For those of the CD era, EPs were popular in the UK in the 1960s and the Stones used them very effectively as what today you would think of as mini-albums. For example, their first EP was known simply as "The Rolling Stones EP" which was part of their innovative idea not to give a name to their albums....their first full album was also un-named. The first EP brought them to prominent attention with their powerful renditions of Bye Bye Johnny, Money, You Better Move On, and Poison Ivy. Expect for You Better Move On, these tracks were not released in the U.S. until 20 years later when retrospectives began to be offered.
This CD is a limited edition box set that includes 12 CD designed to replicate the original vinyl releases. They include the original picture sleeves (most now very expensive collector's items) and the 3 EPs are released here in their original format for the first time on CD. The box also includes 3 photo cards and a 28 page booklet with exclusive linear notes.
This is one of the best box sets I've seen ever, but it is for collectors only!

Ce commentaire est de: Best,the (Audio CD)
Of course only people who have been amazed by Leo attend his concerts, listen to him, buy his music, and write about him. So, I'm no different. I want to say that I had not seen him live for 22 years until 2 nights ago when he played here in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Damn....I had forgotten how incredible he is live......so I bought this album for my guitar playing son so he can see that not all guitar gods are electric....or 6 string either....and that there is someone on this planet who can play slide while keeping a complex song rolling full blast and singing.....how the hell does he manage all that?
Now the other night he did 2 encores and I honestly believe he was as surprised by the intensity of the small crowd as he was by the antics of the bird that kept trying to fly into the bandshell and the bee that was working on the flowers right in front of him all evening.....of course he commented on all this while continuing to play.
This is an album that you play and then replay the track several times because you can't believe what you just heard.....even if 3 guys were playing you would do that much less when it's just Leo by himself. So if you want a great CD that will showcase most of the stuff Leo is famous for...this is probably your best bet.
