I bought Aftermath (UK version) on recommendation, some say it's one of their best, but it don't impress me much.

The only Stones album I have is this one

It's OK,

But everything else I've heard by The Rolling Stones is boring IMO.

Out of over 3,000 albums, I don't have any by the Stones.
I don't mind listening to them. There just seemed to always be something else insisting I buy it instead.
The closest I have is Jagger playing guitar on Leslie West's "The Great Fatsby" album.
And one 45 rpm single.....Brown Sugar. :)

At this point in my life all I have is Sticky Fingers. It jumps. Brown Sugar is indeed good, Douglas.

Well then. We will just have to agree to disagree. :wink:
The only band with 5 in their moniker worth their salt is the MC5

.....never the same since then. :cry:

The last decent album they made was "Let it bleed". Since then, they're mostly following the flavor of the month in order to sell records.

And that includes the Ben Folds 5.

I think the Dave Clark Five had some good singles. They were totally contrived and phony, but "Bits and Pieces" and "Glad All Over" are both great songs by any measure.

Interesting list. I still have the single of "Well Respected Man" that I bought in '66, but the B side is "Ev'rybody's Gonna Be Happy".
(this was the 3rd record I ever bought.)

The singles in the US and the UK were different. The ones above are just the UK singles I think. I've put together a 2 disc set that does all the singles in order, through "Apeman". My favorite of all these singles is "Wonderboy" b/w "Polly" or "Dead End Street" b/w "Big Black Smoke"

Anyway, back to the Stones.....

To me the Stones ended when Mick Taylor left...They were great with Brian Jones and Mick Taylor continued the great run...since then the only thing that they did, that I like was Some Girls. Hey even Bill Wyman knew it was over years ago.

I think that if both Mick and Keith had successful solo careers that they dabbled in about 20 years ago - the Stones would have been history.

Great thread !! :D
Anyone who digs the early stones needs to check this out .... and then go get the lps these came from.

Always admired the English people who embraced the early ' American ' blues and ran with them. :)
Great songs from great artists here , but too ' BLACK ' for american consumers to get into here in the USA ... Most white folks didn't know what they were missing :roll:

One who underwent an assisted death. Had it been Keef Richards, he'd have coughed up half the water in the pool, lit another cigarette, another joint and gone looking for something shoot in his arms to help him catch a quick nap.

After Mick Taylor was gone they had two rhythm guitarists and no lead guitarist along with the distinction of having put out the shittiest album in R 'n R history: "Exile On Main Street" -- the one that Rolling Stone Ragazine still holds in the highest esteem.

Somehow they did grind out Some Girls to redeem themselves but not a single thing since! However, they do have brand recognition (not unlike Pink Floyd in the same way by now) and that guarantees a very positive cash flow they're not going to give up.

To say that Exile is "the shittiest album in R & R history" is just plain ignorant.

You know something weird? The album Between the Buttons, highly regarded as it is, doesn't have any hits on it! Though the American version added the singles Ruby Tuesday and Let's Spend the Night Together, but I don't believe they were part of the original album. The rest of the songs are real hidden treasures though, and totally unlike anything else they recorded. Quirky introspective pop (kinda like what the Kinks were doing at the time).

And yeah Bat, I wouldn't say Exile is the shittiest album ever, but it is one of the most overrated. I've been meaning to go back and listen to it to see what I've been missing but I've heard it about 3 times and it did next to nothing for me.
