Brian's harmonica steals the show here. It is regrettable that "I'm Moving On" was never recorded in the studio. But it is possible that a studio version would not have matched the intensity displayed here. This track simply smokes. All in all, an often-overlooked album that deserves to be rediscovered. Wish I had had a crack at some of the albums for which reviews are closed off.
I really like December's Children , and the standout cuts to me are apparently not the same as what some others have pointed to. A great Arthur Alexander, Jr. See also the Beatles version of "Anna. I understand we have rap these days, but what other group was writing about dominating women this was in the early 60s. If "I'm Free" is a steal, it sure isn't from "8 Days a Week.
The other cuts seem at least okay with lots of Brian Jones interesting things coming up all over the place. On the overall ratings, I think I like this album as much as or than any other of the early Stones albums, which means I like it a whole lot. A tad better than Aftermath for instance. That does not hurt at all.
While the album makes it clear that they'd covered a lot in one year, it does show that the Stones may have been running out of material to use and were not willing to release an EP, which, in my opinion, should have been released. This album isn't a great buy. It doesn't have very many good songs, but the Stones should get some credit. They were making way for Aftermath. So now that she is gone You won't be sad for long For maybe just an hour or just a moment Of the day Then blue turns to grey And try as you may You just don't feel good You don't feel alright And you know that you must find her, find her, find her You think you'll have a ball And you won't care at all You'll find another girl or maybe more To pass the time away Then blue turns to grey And try as you may You just don't feel good You just don't feel alright And you know that you must find her, find her, find her She's not home when you call So you can go to all The places where she used to go But she has gone away Then blue turns to grey And try as you may You just don't feel good You don't feel alright And you know that you must find her, find her, find her Blue turns to grey blue turns to grey She has gone away blue turns to grey I feel so bad blue turns to grey I wish you'd come on home blue turns to grey I feel, I feel so down Note: When you embed the widget in your site, it will match your site's styles CSS.

I'm thinking about what the next tour is. I'm not thinking about retirement. I'm planning the next set of tours, so the answer is really, 'No, not really.

The Rolling Stones have assimilated various musical genres into their own collective sound.
Brian Jones experimented with the use of non-traditional instruments such as the sitar and slide guitar in their early days. Richards recalls, "He was more into T-Bone Walker and jazz blues stuff. We'd turn him onto Chuck Berry and say, 'Look, it's all the same shit, man, and you can do it. I learned that Earl Phillips was playing on those records like a jazz drummer, playing swing, with a straight four. Similarly, Keith Richards, describing the first time he listened to Muddy Waters, said it was the "most powerful music [he had] ever heard When [Jagger and Richards] began to write songs, they were usually not derived from the blues, but were often surprisingly fey, slow, Mersey -type pop numbers".
Jagger said of the song, "It's a relatively mature song considering the rest of the output at the time. And we didn't think of [recording] it, because the Rolling Stones were a butch blues group. The amazing thing is that although Mick and I thought these songs were really puerile and kindergarten-time, every one that got put out made a decent showing in the charts. That gave us extraordinary confidence to carry on, because at the beginning songwriting was something we were going to do in order to say to Andrew [Loog Oldham], 'Well, at least we gave it a try We were very pop-orientated.
We didn't sit around listening to Muddy Waters; we listened to everything. In some ways it's easy to write to order Keith and I got into the groove of writing those kind of tunes; they were done in ten minutes. I think we thought it was a bit of a laugh, and it turned out to be something of an apprenticeship for us.
Richards called it "a bridge into thinking about writing for the Stones. Beginning with Jones and continuing with Wood, the Rolling Stones have developed what Richards refers to as the "ancient art of weaving" responsible for part of their sound — the interplay between two guitarists on stage. Guest pianists were commonplace on recordings; several songs on Beggars Banquet are driven by Nicky Hopkins ' piano playing. On Exile on Main St. Richards started using open tunings for rhythm parts often in conjunction with a capo , most prominently an open-E or open-D tuning in The feuds between Jagger and Richards originated in the s when Richards was a heroin addict,   resulting in Jagger managing the band's affairs for many years.
Musical collaboration between members of the band and supporting musicians was key, due to the fluid lineups typically experienced by the band in the studio,   as tracks tended to be recorded "by whatever members of the group happened to be around at the time of the sessions". Since their formation in , the Rolling Stones have survived multiple feuds. Their top single is " I Can't Get No Satisfaction",  regarded by many at the time as "the classic example of rock and roll".
After they came to the United States, sales of Waters' albums—and those of other blues musicians—increased public interest,  thus helping to reconnect the country with its own music. The Rolling Stones have sold over million albums worldwide  and have held over 48 tours of varying length, including three of the highest-grossing tours of all time: Bridges to Babylon Tour,  Voodoo Lounge Tour,  and A Bigger Bang Tour.
The band has received, and been nominated for multiple awards during their 55 years together including: three Grammy awards and 12 nominations ,  the Juno award for International Entertainer of the Year in ,  U. On Mick Jagger's 75th birthday, scientists named seven fossil stoneflies after present and former members of the band.
Two species, Petroperla mickjaggeri and Lapisperla keithrichardsi, were placed within a new family Petroperlidae. The new family was named in honour of the Rolling Stones, derived from the Greek "petra" that stands for "stone".
The scientists referred to the fossils as "Rolling Stoneflies". They stabbed and beat an audience member, Meredith Hunter to death.
From small clubs and hotels in London with little room for Jagger to move around   to selling out stadiums worldwide, Rolling Stones tours have changed significantly over the decades.
The Stones' early setups were simple compared to what they became later in the band's career when elaborate stage designs, pyrotechnics and giant screens were used. By the time the Stones toured America in , they began to fill large halls and arenas, such as The Forum in Inglewood, California. The Guardian commented that their "combination of front-of-house excellence and behind the scenes savvy took the business of touring to an entirely new level.
During the Tour of the Americas, arena shows became an industry for the band, and the Stones hired a new lighting director, Jules Fisher. On this tour they had two versions of what Jagger referred to as the "lotus stage". One version had a large Venetian cylindrical curtain, and the other had leaves that began in a folded up position and opened during the beginning of the concert. I had to get inside the lotus, climb up a ladder and hang on like grim death to one of the petals, which then opened to reveal the band playing.
During the — American tour, the Stones worked with Japanese designer Kazuhide Yamazari in constructing their stages for stadium-sized locations and audiences. The venues were large enough in size that the band became "like ants" to audience members. When you're out there in this vast stadium, you have to physically tiny up on stage, so that's why on the tour we had those coloured panels and later we started using devices like video screens.
We became very aware of not being seen, of just being there like ants. Mick is the one who really has to project himself over the footlights. And when the show gets that big, you need a little extra help, you need a couple of gimmicks, as we call it, in the show. You need fireworks, you need lights, you need a bit of theatre. As time went on, their props and stage equipment became increasingly sophisticated. When the Stones began to fill stadium-sized venues, or larger, they ran into the problem of the audience no longer being able to see them.
This was particularly the case when they performed a free concert for an estimated 1. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
