Which track is that for in the credits recorded at Dynamic Sounds, Kingston, Jamaica ?
So can we get clarification on what Come To The Ball is please?
Tops and Waiting On A Friend.
I was listening to The Stones '82 show at Leeds this afternoon. Bill Wyman was bloody brilliant wasn't he?? I missed Bill. Especially in a live setting.
Word is it's "Wind Call" or "Wind Chime," an instrumental track left over from GHS sessions, mostly likely the one recorded in Kingston, Jamaica. Jagger's new lyrics and vocals should be interesting
Is it me...or does it look like that books been dog-eared already.
Wasn’t sure if it might have been Fast Talking, Slow Walking as I know that was from those sessions as well.
Thanks for posting some pics. The book still looks nice to me. At least you get a book in this set unlike the GHS vinyl box. Might be later this weekend before I dig in, but let us know your thoughts on the sound if you can.
OK - I've now heard Live at Wembley from this set - and.... I think it's the second night (unfortunately as I was at the first - see previous posts). Jagger's introduction to 'She's so Cold' is identical in its delivery to the partial video we have of night 2.. They then go into the song and the whole 'train wreck' intro guitar section has been cut out - the vocals come pretty much straight in.
So they're acknowledging the shows "notoriety" in the advance blurb, but, it seems, stopping short of revealing why...
I have no idea if this is the full second night or if they've taken from both as the sleeve has no date at all, anywhere - which seems really, really odd. Maybe its tucked away somewhere in the book?
I haven't ( obviously) had time to look at that in any detail as yet. General impression of the book is that its fantastic - as is the whole presentation of this thing. There are some great alternate cover ideas shown that were completely new to me - A couple of them pretty dreadful for a die-cut sleeve featuring the - probably placeholding, but odd - title of 'Mercurs Arcade'.
Now - I must go and play those 9 new tracks - I wanted to wait 'til I could actually sit down and give them some considered time...
I like the GHS a hell of a lot better than this new one. I don’t care if it was attached to the box, or not.
Alternate artwork for the LP design in the book ? Sounds interesting, thanks for the info.
If you could confirm if there are new vocals added to any of the new tracks on disc 2 once you have a listen that would be good.
Is the London gig in stereo? or a mono soundboard?
Yes - The Jagger shot without the added illustration of the Tattoo - which I think I have seen before - plus two full colour illustrated variants which are really cool and new on me. The two odd 'Mercurs Arcade' graphics with what looks like fantasy animal cigarette cards (?), and a Gangster ID parade style photo with the 5 Stones faces roughly collaged in to some of them - almost in a Led Zep 2 way. This is better, but probably quite dated for '81. They made he right choice.
I'm a designer for music projects myself and am a really tough audience for stuff like this book - there is a lot of live shots I guess - but I'm very happy with the design and presentation of this. There aren't going to be great unseen shots of the band in the studio - like 'Goats Head...' because, well, this record wasn't made that way.
Thanks , yeah I’ve seen that shot of Jagger without the Tattoo as well , sounds good, there’s some images of the Paris photo sessions in there ? Looking forward to it.
All I was saying is it's nice they put a book in this set. I thought it was total BS that they charged what they did and no book in the GHS LP box. I get it, you don't like it that much and respect that. So you bought the GHS CD box not the LP set or both?
OK, found it - tucked away in the text of the book. The included show is indeed the second night - the 26th June. The 'She's So Cold' guitar intro has been edited out. So it wasn't 'video drag'! They obviously were all over the shop...
Upthread there was a post about an alleged proper punch by Keith on Ronnie as the reason for the suggested "notoriety" but guess the train wreck start to She's So Cold seems more likely now
We already know that Trouble's A Coming is new vocals
To me, it sounds like new vocals on all, and they sound fine. A couple have Jag’s vocals really brought forward in the mix (Drift Away)
got the 2 cd version last night. The extra 9 tracks for me are just Meh. I am looking forward to getting the box and the Wembley show. I really love those 81-82 shows.
Did the Rolling Stones Peak 40 Years Ago with 'Tattoo You'? Discuss.
Ugh. I hate that over used cliche sentiment. Voodoo Lounge, Bridges To Babylon and most of A Bigger Bang were great albums.
The true fans know this about the 94/05 Trilogy. And Undercover was no slouch, either--in fact, it does have a TY sound itself in quite a few spots.
What I liked was the mentioning of the connections to Black & Blue, and how They can do so very much with so very little.
I wouldn’t say they peaked with Tattoo You. Me, I reckon that happened with Exile or Sticky Fingers, but… the last great studio album, sure. Nothing wrong with that. Their contribution is just outstanding.
I rate Undercover, Steel Wheels and Bridges To Babylon all above Tattoo You to be honest.
