Very nice.....thanks for posting that. I'm a big Taylor fan as well. Jagger and Richards deserve the credit they get for being the engine and songwriting team behind the band, but boy did Taylor offer another dimension that really complimented what they had started to do post- Brian Jones. Those few years were amazing.....

A little more Mick T: this is the last minute and a half from the live "Love in Vain." This guy just has the most amazing vibrato! He makes those notes STING!!!

...and this gem is audio only, but you really get to hear Mick do some nice stretching out with Mayall, before he joined the Stones. He was about 20 years old at this point. Turn this one up and let it go:

Mick left the Stones to join Jack Bruce's band; they did not last long enough to record a studio record, but some live stuff emerged. It has a jazzy/prog rock feel. Imagine something like Yes with Jack Bruce singing. Check it out:

His playing on "Get yer Ya-Ya's out" makes that my favorite Stones album/CD ...EVER....Just the Stones greatest "Live" era.

More Bluesy than Yes, but I get your feeling.

That's Bruce Gary of the Knack on the drum kit. Great playing from him as well. Passed away too soon at 55.

After the Jack Buce Band imploded, Mick Taylor was out of sight for a while in the 1970s. He did as we know sit in with LIttle Feat, and Lowell George returned the favor by playing on the great instrumental "Giddy-up" on Taylor's 1979 solo LP. That LP went largely unnoticed, unfortunately, and Taylor never toured for it. He did go on the road with John Mayall in 1982 and 1983.
WIth Mayall, there was a great "Blues Alive" show with guest starts Buddy Guy and ALbert King. Here's "Stormy Monday" with Mick and Albert. Note Mick's awesome control and nuances; he was kind of like Derek Trucks too in that he clearly is not out to be a showman.

Mick took a break from Mayall's band to play with Bob Dylan in 1983-1984. He took Mayall drummer Colin Allen with him.

This footage mostly shows Bob but you can hear Mick loud and clear. Bob and Mick were still working out where words end and solos begin, but it is some terrific playing - you get to see Mick in the last minute or so.

Check out Brussels Affair....the version of Midnight Rambler alone is worth the price of the whole thing. MT just lays these incredible licks over Richards' chords....and Jagger nails the vocal. Really a powerful version.

Awesome sound by the Stones on that youtube link. Thanks for posting. I wonder if any official live releases from that era are on tap.

I had that playing in my head phones in my office while updating some systems. Now I got Ya Ya's cranking as the snow is whipping around NYC. I don't know what it is, but there's something about when the Stones get cooking live, I get way more fired up to commit mayhem than listening to heavier bands like AC/DC or Metallica.

I felt like breaking my office window listening to that Gimmie Shelter clip.

I've seen the stones 9 times since 1975 w/ Ron Wood. They are awesome, but I like the bluesy Mick Taylor version best. Wish i could have seen this lineup. I have always thought the Beggar'sBan thru Exile on main st run to be the golden age of the stones, of which he was a huge part.

After his work in the first half of the 1980s with Dylan (which led to the albums "Infidels" and "Real Live" as well as a few moments on "Empire Burlesque" and Bootleg Series vol 1-3) and with John Mayall (resulting in one DVD and some later live releases), Mick Taylor went about getting his own blues band together. He left much of the very jazzy / prog rock feel of some of his late 70s work behind for the most part, though it still informed some of his soloing, and get deep into the blues. He lived in NYC for much of the late 1980s, and had two notable sit-ins related to the ABB: playing with the reunited Allmans at the "Crack-down on Crack" concert at MSG and also sitting in as a guest with Dickey Betts at I think the Lonestar, a gig which also had Warren, Jack Bruce, and Rick Deringer, I think.

Here is a video from a little later than that; I believe this is early 90s. Mick is atypically playing something like a hollow-body Telecaster-ish guitar!! This is an Albert King song:

First time I saw the Stones was with Mick Taylor and I think the music the band put out while he was with them was some of my very favorite (and I am a major Rolling Stones fan). And these 2 songs perfectly exemplifiy why I feel that way... dreamy...

I have a cd by Carla Olsen not sure of the year but its not that long ago and Mick plays on the whole cd.There is a track called Great black hole and Mick is really smoking on it,also a track called Micks Tune very good but real killer is the Stones song Winter,she sings the hell out of it and Mick plays like a 10 minute solo on it.If you like Mick you will realy like this.

heres them doing Sway audio only

Mick plays on a bunch of Carla Olson CDs and they are all very good; I'd argue that the stand-out is the live disc "Too Hot for Snakes" (also sometimes just labelled "live") - they do "Sway" and also "Hartley Quits," a great Mayall tune.

Back in the early 90's I was friends with a woman down here in Sydney Australia. We used to hit the live music bars together.
One time I was waiting for her after work and reading a book on the Stones. She arrived and after enquiring what I was reading said "Oh , the Stones " and started rummaging in her handbag. After a time she pulled out some exercise book paper with some writing in pencil. It was some poem or lyrics of some sort , titled "My brown-eyed girl". ( Not the Van Morrison song )
"Mick Taylor wrote that as a little song for me . "
It seems when he toured Australia Solo in the 80's sometime she hooked up with him in the 1st city of the tour ( she was a good-looking girl ) and then spent the whole tour travelling with him.
I had known her for months and she never mentioned it till that time. I did recall that MT toured here cos I'd considered going but didnt. This and the matter-of-fact way in which the story was brought up ( and did I say she was a very attractive woman ? ) led me to believe this was a true story. She had more corroborating evidence if anyone is interested.
She was quite blase but I was gobsmacked the rest of the evening.
