The Rolling Stones - We Love You Desktop Synthesizers

That's a mellotron-one of the brass tape banks, played by Brian Jones. By all counts, Brian could be a real jerk and was wasted a lot of the time. However, his playing is why Satanic Majesties and the early Stones stuff is so magical to me today. He seemed to always be able to add a perfect unusual part to many of the songs. His 'Tron work on this and 2000 light years is fantastic.

I LOVE the Mick Taylor era, but towards the end, they seemed to run out of steam (which continues in their RW stuff in my opinion) without having a creative nutcase in the band.

When or what was their last studio track release? Was it Anybody Seen My Baby in 1997?

Mick refused to be knighted by the queen.

Do we really? They haven't made a good record since Some Girls and that was 35 years ago.

They have a unique style, which to be quite honest is lacking in today's music. It's all very blah, like pudding.

Loved Jaggers performance @ the Grammies. Liked the jacket too.

Here for the gear
 

we love you sessions

if you have the time and access, the complete Satanic Sessions box set is worth a listen. you can hear Keith, Nicky Hopkins and Charlie and often Brian basically jamming TSMR and this single over 8 discs (!) and the songs and sound taking shape with very little input from Mick and Bill for the most part. Nicky was the best and all over so many of the greatest LP's ever from the stones, kinks, who, beatles, jeff beck, lennon, harrison, etc. it really is all in ones taste as i would never put creedence, the doors anywhere near the beatles and stones in my 'pantheon'. after some girls to me the stones became strictly a singles band, and i can't even listen to the singles post-1981...anyway, good to be back on here, its been years and another registration long forgotten since i was here...

It would be nice to see more threads about the Stones and less about that overrated lot from Liverpool who I can't bring myself to name out loud!
well I guess you're gonna hate the fact that there are a couple of Beatles on this track!!!heh

Lots of tape loops and effects on this one....

And don't mention that it was George Harrison who helped get them signed to Decca. Or that they only started writing after watching John and Paul finish off I Wanna Be Your Man in front of them (their first major hit,) or that Andrew Loog Oldham used to work for Brian Epstein and deliberately sold them as the anti-Beatles or that...

Agreed re Nicky Hopkins, a real master. But he only ever played on one Beatles song, Revolution.

The Beach Boys ?!? I am at a loss for words really. I mean Oh-My-God!

go for broke

As a songwriting duo Mick and Keith are under-rated i think. Great band, but great tunes as well. They inspired me to really put elbow grease into a track when i heard all the re-workings and high take count on boots.

Now when someone is bragging they did this or that "in one take" i almost always reply... "it sounds like it."

Amazingly underrated album, IMO. Overshadowed by the fact that they were following the Beatles´ Pepper pattern, and by their own re-invention in 1968. I see it more as a combination of Zappa´s Freak out and Pepper. Song by song is fantastic, if you edit out some psychedelic excesses. I bet if you blast "Citadel" in any bar now, many would think it´s a great new indie band of 2012. That kick drum always amazed me.
