Back to Austin tomorrow for The Rolling Stones concert. Quit early today and going to get some beer and something to smoke on the smoker lol. Glad it is on a Saturday makes everything easier a few friends from Austin will be there so might as well make it a party. Last concert was Slipknot but I understand the geezers can get quite crazy oh no! I’m rapidly approaching Geezerhood ….

I’m finding The Rolling Stones early 1970s albums to be to my taste however bad it can be but the 70s Stones is awesome. Now I know as a young kid what the neighbors were jamming to when smoking candy smelling cigarettes

Born in 1970 I grew up in a home with the Stones blasted regularly. Pretty sure they affected my DNA when in the womb.
I remember Out of Our Heads, Between the Buttons, High Tides and Green Grass, SMR and Though the Past Darkly which was octagonal with frayed edges and Let it Bleed (I stole the poster)

Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out. That's all you need. That's the essential Stones. The original release and extended version were my jogging playlist for most of October, along with Exile, Sticky Fingers, Beggar's Banquet and Let It Bleed.

The Stones lost me at Goat's Head Soup. I bought it, hated it then, gave it away and still can't listen to it. Utter rubbish.

There were some great songs on a few albums after that, but Dirty Work was their last great album -- and many critics hate Dirty Work while embracing Goat's Head Soup. Proof that rock music causes brain damage. Dirty Work is great because it's Keef's revenge and grievance album, with Jagger only visiting occasionally to do vocals. Lots of clever angry sniping in the lyrics.

I hate to disagree with Canklecat because his interesting and most logical explanations seem perfect about 98.36% of the time, but DIRTY WORK was a horrible album, worse than Undercover. Too Rude was the best thing on it and the Harlem Shuffle cover was good but One Hit To The Body wasn't very good and the rest of the album is garbage. Jagger's solo albums before WANDERING SPIRIT are unlistenable, as they are so bad. Keith's TALK IS CHEAP album is really good. Nobody then expected anything at all decent from Keith and he shocked everybody with a really good album and when he took the stage for the first time ever on Thanksgiving Night, NOV 24, 1988 in Atlanta at the Fox Theatre, he put on one helluva show, and he actually sang pretty well, as nobody expected much in that department as from '72 thru '81 he'd usually only manage about half of the vocals of Happy,Before They Make Me Run,or Little T&A before needing help from Jagger or Jagger&Billy Preston. Keith would only do one song then on tours from '72 thru '81, and if yall remember Billy Preston would do two songs in every show on US TOUR '75 & EUROPE '76, but Billy had his own #1 & top ten hits. Woody & Keith's spontaneously planned May 1979 tour as The New Barbarians did have Keith singing a number of songs but both he and Woody were ripped at every show and it was just a rock n roll party. It was well played enjoyable music with the vocals of Ron & Keith being worse than about 18,202 concert goers at each of the filled to capacity 18,500 seat basketball arena. Keith did manage to do almost halfway decent versions of Lets Go Steady at some shows and a surprisingly decent version of Apartment #9 in most all the concerts.
When Keith hit the stage on Thanksgiving night in 1988 in Atlanta for the first ever X-pensive Winos performance, he was ready for business. You could tell that he had been clean and sober and had worked hard on his vocal delivery and singing in rehearsals before that first concert. He had Sara Dash as his vocalist in that band. Keith came out and proved to everyone that he could put on a good concert with his limited vocal ability. In my opinion, Keith's 1988 WINOS tour, paved the way for THE BEST EVER LIVE ROLLING STONES ERA which would begin on AUGUST 31, 1989 in Philadelphia. The Rolling Stones live in 1989-1990, and 1994-1995, and 1997,1998 & 1999, and 2002-2003 WAS BETTER THAN 1969 TOUR, BETTER THAN TOURS in 1972, or 1970, or 1971 !!! The Ron Wood era 1989 through 2003 LIVE Rolling Stones WERE BETTER THAN the LIVE Mick Taylor era ('69-'73) Rolling Stones. That is my opinion. I saw all of those tours!
No question that they were indeed excellent during the '69-'73 era but as great as Ya-Yas is, there are overdubbed Jagger vocals on all but excepting probably Midnight Rambler, Love In Vain, and Carol. The rest of the songs are the live music but with replacement Jagger vocal tracks, and that is why it is often thought of as the best live album of all time, but vocals on most of the tracks aren't the live in concert actual vocals. Roger Daltry's & Gregg Allman's vocals are representative of those concerts which also are considered the best live album of all-time. Jagger's vocals were better in Europe in Sept & Oct 1970 than in most Nov 1969 US shows, although his vocals in 1969 were good.
HERE ARE A FEW ENJOYABLE BOOTLEG RECORDINGS THAT ARE AUDIENCE TAPES MADE BY FANS FROM THE SEATS. THE Perth 2-24-73 Tape is A Crude Stage Monitor mix "board tape" but all of the others are Listenable cassette concert tapes made by various fans.
These all are good concerts!

BERLIN Sept 16, 1970 audience cassette tape recording

CHARLOTTE, NC July 6, 1972 audience cassette tape recording......missing the opening song Brown Sug and nearly all of the second song Bit..

LA FORUM Jan 18, 1973 The Nicaraguan Earthquake Benefit Concert

HONOLULU HAWAII Jan 21, 1973

BRISBANE Australia Feb 14, 1973 (missing 1st song Brown Sug)

ADELAIDE Australia Feb 21, 1973

PERTH Australia Feb 24, 1973 at Western Australia Cricket Ground .....this is a crude stage monitor "board" tape

Those crude but enjoyable LIVE tapes will get anyone into a good rock n roll Stones mood if you can tolerate the low-fidelity, crude origins of those tape recordings!

Personally I don't think Get Your Ya-Ya's Out holds up to repeated listening the way ^^^those four studio recordings do, but it certainly doesn't suck, it won't kill your children, and it's at least strong enough to fit in nicely with the bands chronological discography during those years.

At the time it was released I would have agreed with you (...though not so much that I wouldn't then also buy the subsequent album It's Only Rock'N'Roll. Whereas Black & Blue was so horrible, and such a departure from the Taylor years, that I could never bring myself to buy it, nor any other subsequent Stones album ever. But I digress...)

Goats Head Soup came out while I was in junior high school, and while there were one or two tunes on it that I really liked, it mostly got played when I was in dire need of a quick nap: Fire up Side Two of Goats Head Soup and I would be fast asleep before the third cut. Every. Single. Time. I figured it was because A) Side Two was boring, and/or B) Side Two sucked. Didn't matter, it was like instant Melatonin. Zzzzzzz...

But 40- or 50-some-odd years later, my opinion of Goats Head Soup has improved dramatically, to the point where I would now consider it the final album of their "apex sequence" (with It's Only Rock'N'Roll being the swan song). Tunes like "Coming Down Again" and "Can You Hear The Music?" and especially "Winter" fit in perfectly with the raw charm and piquant sincerity of the best cuts from Exile On Main Street or Sticky Fingers. It's really only the one or two clunkers -- "Silver Train" and "Hide Your Love" (and maybe, arguably "Star Star") -- that make it less-than-stellar.

effin' Mick Taylor was definitely the special sauce in that band imho.

I like the 1968-1973 material and the 1978 Some Girls album. Being a 80s young person 1981 Tattoo You was popular. After 60 years I guess it is all subjective to your own time. Overall you can’t go wrong with the Stones. Seeing them live for the first time and possible the only time in 2021 was spiritually moving like seeing gods though they are mortal. Being around 50 years after the demise of the Beatles being from the same era and pushing 80 years old and still performing well and having a blast entertaining the crowd was epic.

The more I listen to albums the more I remember hearing the songs as a young kid when older people were getting stoned and drunk lol. Some obscure songs that are good jar my memory like I have heard this song before a long time ago. Watching concert footage from 1972 and I’m thinking how cool would it be to go back in time and go to that concert. I’m working on my time machine and it’s getting close to for preliminary testing and can’t tell you all too much because I don’t want to give away my invention. Hopefully it will send me back to a 1972 Stones concert. Been 10 days since the Austin show and I’m still have a buzz lol.

Well, I just re-listened to Dirty Work for the first time in about five years, and Goats Head Soup for the first time in about 50 years. Still love Dirty Work, still think Goats Head Soup is meh, utterly forgettable. Mostly I was surprised to find that even Robert Christgau liked Dirty Work. He never liked anything I liked.

I might try some of the more recent Stones stuff for my jogging playlist. But my taste in music has moved on from most conventional rock. My favorite era for rock and pop is still 80s-'90s stuff, punk, new wave, power pop, whatever label makers want to call it. Sometimes I'd rather listen to jazz or meandering ambient and wannabe soundtrack music, from Eno through Hammock and All India Radio.
