Which do you like better the Rolling Stone's version or ABB's version?

I have always liked Rolling Stones but I have to say I like the Brother's interpretation better. I think Gregg's voice was made for that song.

I like the entire ABB interpretation. I never liked the RS version and it took me a few moments to recognize it the first time I heard the ABB studio version. Gregg does a great job on the vocals.

I like the Blondie version, myself.








Oh wait, that's a different material.

The Allman Brothers Version is outstanding I wish they would play it more especially when they do the small theatres beacon's casinos etc.

I don't really care for the song itself. I forgot the Stones' version existed until the Allmans covered it, and I had forgotten the Allmans' version existed until I read this thread. Surprisingly (to myself), I guess I'd take the Stones' version, it just doesn't fit the Allmans in my opinion. Maybe if the Allmans had reworked it a little more, as they usually do, but it's a pretty straight forward, by-the-numbers, cover. They didn't do anything to really make it their own.

I happen to like both of them very much but I have to lean towards the Rolling Stones on that one. I love the early to middle 60s feel to it and I definitely enjoy the way that Charlie drums on that one.

The whole HTN record is one of the best recordings in this entire world. The slide on ABB's version Heart of Stone puts chills down my spine. Though almost every song does, sincerely.My eyes are watering all the time, that may sound weird, but nothing touches me like the ALLMAN Bros!!!

I prefer the ABB version. Because I was never crazy about the song itself, but I like Gregg singing it and of course the guitars are always amazing...

I actually love when the ABB do cover songs, after all they have been doing it since day one with things like "Don't Want You No More", "One Way Out", "You Don't Love Me" "Stormy Monday" etc. and I think it is amazing that they have come up with some very unlikely choices and made great versions of them. But don't get me wrong, I like a nice set of ABB material with a couple covers thrown in. If anything, I'd actually like to see a bunch of their own stuff that's overlooked be thrown back in the set such as "All Night Train", "Sailin' 'Cross the Devil's Sea", "Kind of Bird" etc. Plus I would love to hear them bring back "Loan Me a Dime" which I thought was a great cover.

I've never liked this song, not as a Stones song, and not as an ABB song. Definitely my least favorite track on Hittin' the Note.

"Dazed and Confused" kicks ass, on the other hand, no matter what Brent says!
