43 years ago, one of the greatest albums ever made was released
And for good measure
Ya can't post classic Stones and then shit the thread up with fish music
Did you hear Bill Kreutzmann on NPR today?
Its all Stones. Phish covered the entire album, with Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings guesting on a few tunes. Speaking objectively, its worth the listen, they dont get into the heavy jams they do with their regular shows.
I Didnt. Good spot?
Yeah, a good 5 minute interview.
I'll bookmark it and listen tomorrow.
Right on. The band is comprised of extremely talented musicians; thats kind of an objective statement. Even the harshest Phish critics will concede that the band are all masters of their interment (outside of vocals). The part about them most people dont like is their proclivity to go off on lengthy improvs, with lots of changes, and detachment from the original song. When they went cover to cover with Exile, they cut out a lot of their exploration.
I'm watching the news about the big train crash in Philly
I live in Colorado now....Philly is basically just a suburb of Chicago at this point.
I don't think it matters to the dead right now
I missed that. But, I did make a trip to the book store on Sunday to buy his new book "Deal."
Also, I'm wearing my JG Alligator t-shirt right now.
At the cannabis cup, he was giving out promotional Deal rolling papers
I saw that on FB. He's been putting himself out there doing all kinds of cool stuff. What a great guy!
I've always wanted to read this book. I might make it my next read. The lead singer of Buffalo Tom wrote a book about Exile.
Do you know in what context? The recording process? The famous '72 tour for the album? I'm curious because it's a pretty mythical time for the Stones
Tracing the creation of Exile on Main Street from the original songwriting done while touring America through the final editing in Los Angeles, Bill Janovitz explains how an album recorded by a British band in a villa on the French Riviera is pure American rock & roll. Looking at each song individually, Janovitz unveils the innovative recording techniques, personal struggles, and rock & roll mythmaking that culminated in this pivotal album.
Awesome! Did you write that synopsis, or did you copy/pasta? If you wrote it, you're quite a wordsmith
