That version of 'Let's Spend The Night Together' is really rather good isn't it!

I don't particularly want to start up an argument, honest, but Bowie's version (1973, hmmm) is the worst cover version, Stones or otherwise, I have ever heard (apart from 'American Pie' by Madonna, obviously), but this is pretty groovy.

'Out of Time' seems to work (slightly) less well.

Yes, they are indeed rather good.  My favorite Beatles cover, and it happens to be a bossa nova arrangement, is The Fool On The Hill by Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66...


FOOL ON THE HILL - Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66

1968


There are times, depending on my mood, that I like it better than the original.

My cup runneth over Hello Goodbye!
In the spirit of celebrating the 50th Anniversary of 'A Hard Day's Night' I've been playing the Stones' 'Five By Five' EP from that same summer.
One thing struck me, and it obviously applies to The Beatles as well, and that is just HOW MUCH stuff those lads put out in the 60s.

Starting from the previous summer ('63), '5 by 5' was their second stand-alone EP, their 4th stand-alone 45 (including 3 stand-alone b-sides) had just come out, and they'd recorded a fabulous debut LP, their 2nd LP due to come out at the start of '65. And that's quite apart from BBC sessions, TV appearances, touring etc.

In 2014, that work-rate of 18 months would be stretched out to fill a decade.....and it wouldn't touch what The Stones (or The Beatles) put out.

I had to buy 'Paradise Theater' from Styx AGAIN because I couldn't find it and my brother wanted to borrow it. I don't know what happens to them sometimes.

I saw Midlake at a festival last week and was impressed enough to order their last two albums.

I can't seem to find mine either. I was sure I saved it. It was a picture disc, wasn't it?

Seriously Kelley, i'm not sure about the picture disc. I only had the CD.

I forgot this is a thread about CDs! I had the album and the 8 track. I listened to the tape more, in my '72 Cutlass (which I got in 1980 when I was a senior in high school). If I listened to the album now I would probably remember the exact moments when the program changed on the 8 track since I tended to leave the same tape in the deck for weeks on end. LOL

I finally got around to buying the Doris Troy CD (1963) in the huge Japanese Atlantic Soul/Jazz campaign.

Those 60s LPs are perfect - great sleeves, 12 songs, over in 30 minutes.....virtually the template for great pop music, and one which The Beatles and Stones followed to the letter on their early releases.

I'm in London tomorrow so I'm going to pick up another couple, possibly the Booker T. '66 record and Archie Bell & The Drells from '68. Or maybe The Mar-Kays? Or Carla Thomas? Too much choice!
All just £5 each.
