That last video, "Love in Vain," just kills me. It is from the movie "Ladies and Gentlemen, the Rolling Stones," of their 1972 tour. It came out in the theaters but has never come out on video or DVD, alas. YouTube has some pieces of it.

Just check out Mick Taylor in that video; he does not move much (a lot like Derek, really), just stands there and gets absorbed in the music and dishes out some fat, fat vibrato. He was 23 years old at the time.

Those were great choices for songs, by the way. "Moonlight Mile" and "Time Waits for No One" are such gorgeous songs, and you never hear them on the radio.

I used to somewhat dislike the Stones, like in the early 80s. I was sick to death of their hits, and their personas on their 80s videos was not to my liking. However, in college, a good friend who was/ is a Stones fanatic got me HOOKED on all of these great songs I had never heard before, and I COMPLETELY changed my mind about them.

It also took me some time to think about music a bit differently. The Stones are all about groove and flow, where I was more a fan of virtuosity (Zepp, Cream, Rush) and drama (The Who). In an interesting way, The Stones are more like The Band.

Still and always the greatest Rock N' Roll band of all time. The Stones are the benchmark considering they've been together for 40+ years.

The Stones are a great Rock n Roll Band,
Much more a fan of their studio work than their Live shows
although i sure do get psyched to see them Live,
it always seems i feel a bit let down at the shows.
so many fantastic tunes, you cannot argue with their Legacy.

Does anybody have any good Stones shows from the Mick Taylor era and Cocksucker Blues DVD? Watched part of the Forty Licks Live DVD not bad but the best one has to be the show in the smaller venue.

I have this (as well as many of the CD's where songs originally appeared) and I really like Forty Licks but I'm kind of a nut for Stones. This is good for taking along in the car and getting a real good Stones fix without having to lug 10 CD's.

These are 2 of my favorite Stones songs. Both of them just put me in a dream state.

If you're looking for a live tape, can't help you, but there is one live album from the Mick Taylor era - A Brussels Affair - that is excellent. I believe there is another one out there called Happy Birthday Nicky or something like it. Both were burned for me by a friend so I'm not sure of the specifics, or if the Birthday one is even Mick Taylor, but I can tell you the Midnight Rambler on Brussels is one of my all time favorite live songs. Keith cranks this awesome rhythm behind Taylor's screaming licks and Jagger is - well, he's Jagger man.

IPowrie, for videop, here are some highlights from the Taylor era:

1. The Stones in the Park - this was the first gig with Mick Taylor, in Hyde Park, London, 1969. Keith is woefully out of tune, so it is not a great gig, but it is a historic one. Filmed for TV, I think. I was officially out on video; I do not know if it ever got put out on DVD.

2. Gimme Shelter: the documentary of the Altamont festival. It alternates between being scary (Hells Angels menace and attack), boring (slow interviews), and amazing (red hot live Stones 1969). THis is available officially. Warning: the camera focuses almost exclusively on Jagger and RIchards, even during Taylor's awesome guitar solo on "Love In Vain."

3. The Stones at the Marquee - 1970 I think. This is a bootleg video, pro-shot, again for TV I think, in black and white from what I have seen. many bad 1960's "psychedelic" effects and editing but some GREAT playing. Baptism of fire for some "Sticky Fingers" songs.

4. "Ladies and Gentlemen, the Rolling Stones" - the motherlode. Released in theaters but not on video or DVD, but decent bootleg DVDs available on the Four Reel label. It is the Stones on their 1972 Exile on Main Street tour, and they really tear it up. If there is one to get, this is most definitely it. Will it ever be released for general consumption? Who knows?

5. 1972 rehearsals - about a half hour of the Stones rehearsing. Great fun, some cool jamming and doodling.

6. Cocksucker Blues - I'm not a big fan. There are some excellent pieces of live music, but a whole lotta dopey doped-up meandering too.

As for CDs, there are a ton. The official live 1969 one, "Get Your Ya-Yas Out," is great. It came out in response to a bootleg called "LiveR than you'll Ever Be," which is also awesome. The Stones had a more raw sound and were playing some songs on that tour which would get dropped for quite a while, so it is good to get a 1969 show or two in.

"Get Your Leeds Lungs Out" is a well-recorded (I think for radio) show from Leeds, England, I think 1970. Some of Sticky Fingers gets aired here.

For 1972, the Exile tour, I like "Fort Worth Express," which has some of the same show as the movie "Ladies and Gentlemen."

Two of their 1973 shows in Europe (Goat's Head Soup tour) were taped for King Biscuit Flour Hour, which I think is where Brussels Affair and Bedspring Symphony come from; the 2-CD set "Heading for an Overload" has both of these shows, which is great because they do play some different tunes. It is cool to hear some of those "Goat's Head Soup" shows live.

There are some excellent studio outtakes from that era out on boot also, but I think I have gone on long enough!!!!

"40 Licks" also has more songs and retails for about $10 less than the classic "Hot Rocks" collection and includes the best of the post 1971 era. A couple of the new tracks created for the set were a bit dodgy, all but one ("Don't Stop") having never been acknowledged by the group in concert. The two discs are not historically sequencetial though the first leans more to the sixties and the second everything since. It's an excellent starting point for a young fan interested in learning more about the Stones.
