January 17th is the great Mick Taylor's birthday. Join me in sending some positive vibes his way and I will ask - what songs would (will) you throw on the stereo to celebrate Mick's taste, tone, and touch?

I will be tossing on the bootleg studio take of Dylan and Taylor on "Blind Willie McTell," the luscious "Winter" from "Goat's Head Soup," probably "Sway" from the Carla Olson/ Mick Taylor live disc, and most definitely the live 1982 Bluesbreakers reunion CD!

Thanks to Mick for all of that fat vibrato and sparklingly melodic note choice!

Happy B-day to one of my top 10 guitarists for sure.

Get Yer Yah-Yah's out is my favorite Mick Taylor stuff and to me Keef was in his prime then, feeding off of Taylor, much the same way Dickey & Duane fed off each other.
You may not think of the stones as a jam band, but Sympathy for the Devil has some great leads that Keef and Mick do and Midnight Rambler is an 8-10 minute improv/jam with different sections and is remarkably similar to You Don't Love Me (in my book).

The stones just weren't as big on trading 4's and harmonies as D&D and remember this is 1969 and they were playing sellouts in arenas, way before the ABB started touring nationally and stretching tunes out into jams. Mick Taylor is definitely one of the unsung heroes of the genre, and I would guess that Duane heard of him and respected him

I have a few bootlegs of Mick Taylor doing Dead Flowers with the most tasteful fills I have ever heard.

I'm kinda partial to Mick's first solo album from '79.Lowell George repays the favour of Mick sitting in with Feat on Apolitical Blues from Waiting For Columbus, two of my fav. slide players.

I have a DVD at home...I can't remember the title right now...but it is sort of a reunion of John Mayall, Mick Taylor, John McVie, with lots of special guests including Junior Wells & Buddy Guy, Albert King, Sippie Wallace, Etta James, and others. I wish i could remember but it's been a few years since I watched it. Anyway,Mick is great on this DVD and it's a fun way to watch some legends really kicking out the tunes. I think I'll watch it tonight. I'm sure someone here will know the DVD I'm talking about...

Happy Birthday Mick Taylor! Love the Stones Sticky Fingers and Exile on Main Street and think that Mick Taylor influenced some of the sounds there (Moonlight Mile comes to mind). Also think his work on Time Waits for No One is beautiful.

"Time Waits for No One" is one of the most majestic guitar solos of all time - just amazing

I agree -- one of my favorite songs of all time & Mick's playing is, as you say, amazing -- likewise his solo on Can't You Hear Me Knocking, his slide playing on the Ya Ya's version of Love In Vain, & much too many others to list.
Happy Birthday Mick!!!

in agreement on all counts! "blues from laurel canyon" is one of my favorite john mayall lp's and mick's playing has a lot to do with that.

I haven't bought a Stone's album (CD) since Mick Taylor left the band. Don't get me wrong, the Stones will always be the ... Stones. But Mick made them sound... Better... "Get yer ya-ya's out"...is the sh*t, My absolute favorite Rolling Stones album.

"Sway" from the Carla Olson/ Mick Taylor live disc"
-----Yes, yes, yes, one of the finest versions ever recorded....even got MT singing . I am always wondering why this song does not get much more airplay

"Midnight Rambler is an 8-10 minute improv/jam with different sections"
---I groove on the versions with MT on slide trading licks with Jagger on harp....very very emotional and uplifting to hear the exchanges.

Got to see MT here in Columbus in the mid-90s.....still had it then

Really love Mick's playing..... His work with John Mayall and the Stones is really special... Would love to hear Mick play with Derek's or Susan's bands a bit.

Mick Taylor was the one who made the Stones a good Concert band. All the times I've seen them prior, they were good..but sounded like a garage band. Mick gave them a fullness in sound you need in Concert. They never sounded so good live, as when Mick was with the band... have a good one mate!

In the special addition of Hittin' The Note where Duane is on the cover and there is the interview with Clapton about Duane, Duane states in a seperate article/interview his admiration for Mick Taylor. I don't have it in front of me, but I think he is refering to seeing him with Mayall.

I saw mick and his band in new haven ct. at a small club in 1988!, it was fantastic. the band featured, the great [bernard purdy] on drums [max middleton] on keys, [shane fontaine] on guitar, and wilbur bascombe on bass!. It sure would be fine to have mick stop by the beacon to jam with the brothers!!.

Pops, check around on the Net, most Mick Taylor shows from around then were recorded and booted and distributed, so I bet you coudl find that one. I might even have it myself - is that the Brick and WOod show?
