  Mon. 6/26/17 12:05am PJ:

Midnight Rambler is probably my least favorite Stones song, mostly because it is an interminable about a serial killer, but somebody got the right combination of drugs to the band on this night, because this version is smoking.
  Mon. 6/26/17 12:05am PJ:

interminable song

Mick Taylor. Not bad, yerknow.

Fuck yeah, Mick Taylor!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 6/26/17 12:09am Jeff Conklin:

This is one of my favorite songs. Not just because its long but because MT just rips it up almost every time. Great version. Also, I'm a Stones nut and have never played them on the show before.

Good morning, all.

First time playing the Dead on this show as well, right? ;)

Evening from NorCal. Great segue! Brussels is the Stones at their best(although the Aussie '73 tour is even wilder).

Greetings from Catskills Mr Conklin!starting off with a bang...always nice to be in the ghetto!pigpen!!
  Mon. 6/26/17 12:17am PJ:

Well, now we can see why The Dead were not signed to Stax. (Apologies to the Dead fans, but the vocals, among other things, have always left me blase.) But I do appreciate that they had good taste.

Good evening from a sultry Oregon, ~100 degree peak today

You're just a fountain of positivity this evening, PJ.

The Dead and Stax were just fine without any association.

Sorry, Jeff, I am actually enjoying the program. I will refrain from further commentary.

I kind of appreciate the ragged but right approach.

levitation blues
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/26/17 12:34am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

'Levitation' is an Elevators word to me - but they all had relations, naturally.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 6/26/17 12:35am Jeff Conklin:

The Elevators had levitation for sure but the Dead had a lot more ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/26/17 12:40am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...a point you have made, & which I now bring up w/ everybody: the simple fact that the Dead played - all - the - time - allowed a whole different sort of thing to happen around them...The Elevators code *was* to never play unless tripping - but they certainly had no scene like the Acid Tests which the Dead had the freedom to develop in - quite the opposite in Texas...
  Mon. 6/26/17 12:45am MONEYBAG$:

my dad got to see the dead in 1967, a show that doesn't even circulate

I didn't realize that Dead tune was from 67'. The harmonica sounded like " Smokestack Lightning" but everything else sounded like 1969 to me.
Avatar Mon. 6/26/17 12:55am BEAVO:

Yeah, If the "Elevators" weren't tripping all the time someone might have said, "Hey, mabye lets NOT have the fucking jug on EVERY number.

goats head soup: the last great 'stones album. midnight rambler: the one song that keeps let it bleed from being the best 'stones album.

I don't hate midnight rambler. saw the stones a few years ago and they wheeled Mick Taylor out just to play it

Arghh, this Farm record is too expensive on Discogs

Just for the record, I vote yea on Midnight Rambler

Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/26/17 1:10am coelacanth∅:

Mick Taylor composed the git part for honky tonk woman; wrote moonlight mile; wrote can't you hear me knockin', and most of the rest of sticky fingers - the 'stones best album....etc etc....midnight rambler has very little to do with the Great musician, Mick Taylor.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/26/17 1:11am Aitch:

Too much filler on Stones albums. Nothing of note for way too long either. Dead horse flogged.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/26/17 1:12am Aitch:

Do love Keef though
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/26/17 1:13am coelacanth∅:

no filler on sticky fingers, or between the buttons, for that matter.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 6/26/17 1:14am Jeff Conklin:

Well, seeing as how MT played on that version and all notable versions of Midnight Rambler, I'd say it has quite a bit to do with him.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 6/26/17 1:14am Jennifer_PNW:

Bummed that Mick Taylor never received songwriting credits from the Glimmer Twins
  Mon. 6/26/17 1:15am MONEYBAG$:

I love Metamorphosis and there are almost no Stones on it
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/26/17 1:15am coelacanth∅:

...maybe the guitar part...but it's notably un-sophisticated for Taylor.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/26/17 1:19am Mark R.:

These Tripsichord folks are pretty groovy.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 6/26/17 1:20am Jeff Conklin:

@coel: I'll take that "un-sophistication" any day of the week.

Anybody else want to piss and moan for a bit? Let's get it all out tonight

I mean I'll listen again, could be wrong, often am. A project. Stones have a load of my fave songs, just they're all on different albums
Avatar Mon. 6/26/17 1:25am Johnny Sal:

I know nothing of Fingletoad. Kinda digging this, though
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/26/17 1:26am coelacanth∅:

hey Jeff - was anyone here telling anyone else their opinion wasn't valid?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/26/17 1:30am Mark R.:

I love the Mick Taylor era of the Stones, but I think it's true that he was cheated out of many songwriting credits, which also happened to Ron Wood for many years. I'm glad they finally released "The Brussels Affair" officially. I had a cassette copy of it from "The King Biscuit Flower Hour" that I played to death. They were really playing great that night and it's a nice chance to hear some "Goats Head Soup" tunes like "Dancing with Mr. D." and "Heartbreaker." I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Taylor briefly in a hotel lobby a few years back when he was doing a few tunes with them on their tour. A very nice gentleman, he looked great (I know he'd had his struggles over the years, but he seemed quite healthy), and he said he was really enjoying the tour.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 6/26/17 1:30am Jeff Conklin:

@Coel: You're there telling me Midnight Rambler has nothing to do with MT, which, I mean, is demonstrably false.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 6/26/17 1:33am Jeff Conklin:

And I said I loved that version because of MT's playing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/26/17 1:33am Mark R.:

Mick was not on the original recording on "Let It Bleed" (which is great in its own way), but on all those great live versions, he was a big part of it, especially as time went on, he developed that great slide part for it, which you featured tonight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/26/17 1:34am coelacanth∅:

yeah, he played git on it.
...so because i said this i'm telling you your opinion is wrong?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/26/17 1:38am coelacanth∅:

it was composed before Taylor joined the band, and shows nothing of the sophistication that was obvious on the entirety of sticky fingers.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 6/26/17 1:45am Jeff Conklin:

I like the Stooges and Yes
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/26/17 1:46am Mark R.:

Me, too, eff--there's room for the sophisticated AND the unsophisticated, sometimes in the same song!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/26/17 1:47am Aitch:

Stones never did a record to compare with Revolver. Hand grenade thrown. For me as an aussie go to band(s) for Brit pop Kinks, Donovan et al
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/26/17 1:47am Mark R.:

Uh, that's Jeff with a ""--not eff!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 6/26/17 1:47am Jennifer_PNW:

Agree 100% Mark R
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/26/17 1:48am Aitch:

Stooges, good lord. My big bro (I'm old) bought Funhouse new. Changed my world.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 6/26/17 1:49am Jennifer_PNW:

I saw Yes 20 years ago. Not the greatest show ever but to a 17 year old prog stoner, I was stoked.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/26/17 1:50am Mark R.:

That is quite a hand grenade, but I'll say what I'd say if I was running for office--honestly, I love both bands, and "Revolver" was a wonderful album, and so was "Let It Bleed," and they're very different and fabulous, each in their own way. Please vote for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/26/17 1:54am Mark R.:

I saw Yes on their "Going for the One" tour, the first one where Rick Wakeman rejoined the band, and it was everything I hoped it would be, right down to flowing sleeves and the waist-deep fog during the "Get Up Get Down" section of "Close to the Edge."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/26/17 1:55am Aitch:

Jeff's still a gold darn hippy though whatever we think
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/26/17 2:00am coelacanth∅:

hahaha! the stones never did anything like rubber soul or abbey rd. either...or like fun house or relayer...but the beatles never did anything like beggar's banquet or sticky fingers; or forever changes or electric ladyland...
revolver is Great because the Great songs are Great - but...it's not all good! (in my ever so humble, but obviously invalid opinion!)
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 6/26/17 2:03am Jennifer_PNW:

Mark R, that show sounds epic. Jealous! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/26/17 2:08am Mark R.:

I enjoyed it--I was just the right age (late teens); Donovan opened (he actually had a brand new record out), and I expected to hate him, but I loved his set, too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/26/17 2:08am Aitch:

Agreed ancient fish. All good. Jeff a guru, a learning experience. Dead-set (aussie slang) soft since Just Music though?
