They don't make rock and roll songs like that anymore!

Absolutely, one of the great Rock n Roll albums of all time
Still and always a hot song
When I was young, my cousin loved the Stones; me, not so much. Gotta say, he was right.

a good song... the 16th best of Exile ... or one of the worst of the album!

Put that in your counter-culture pipe and smoke it...
 
Mick Jagger is 75 and in hospital for heart surgery this week.  Tour to Canada and the US cancelled recently but hold on to your tickets for the recovery tour.
This may teach Kings of Leon a lesson.

"From Chuck to this..." should be uttered after every Stones song.

Thanks, man!

Not hardcore - not seeing any possible concert - no!
Still a fan of the first hour!

Then came "Exxile on main street"!

And I was surprised - and whole heartedly dislike it!

Then the professionals came, calling this the best STONES-album ever!

I listened again!

And again, when it was re-issued some time ago in better quality!

And...?

Still, I dislike it!
This song is nothing but another proof!

These are not the STONES!

 
Stingray, If I had a dollar for every bombastic post of yours, I'd be the richest man on the internet. These are the Rolling Stones you silly man.

Similar tempo, different chord progressions.  Much R&B-based music will have some similarities anyhow.

i'm pretty sure the cover band, Fazed Cookies, did this at the Green Lantern last friday night...where i did a memorable, albeit bad and obnoxious, mick jagger imitation all night long. i blame the Jamesons.

that poor band. i ruined their show.
 
Did NOT ruin the show ... I just checked the surveillance tapes and you were really great!  I've got a copy of the topless portion which is pretty funny too.  Ahhhhh ... so long ago!


CRANK IT UP!!!!!!
At the risk of sounding too subtle....  this is the BEST ALBUM EVER, from this or any other possible dimension.
Excellent work from Mr.Wyman.

8 unreleased cuts and 2 alternate takes.  The unreleased stuff is pretty good, some of it, IMHO, is better than some
of the official release music!

Read somewhere years ago he got tired of all the druggin' and boozin' which was probably at its peak along with the band's creativity.

fans of this album may want to give Phish's 2009 Halloween Cover of it a listen.  Featuring Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings


Still don't know why Mick Taylor left.
Great song from a great album

This and "London Calling" are on my desert island disc list.

 
if I was on a desert Island probably go nuts and start liking the stones he he


This song is just a mess. Maybe that's a good thing. Maybe that's a bad thing.

Back when they were young, dumb and full of come.

so you're only going to be listening to double albums at that point?  You better bring Physical Graffiti and "The White Album" along as well...

completely awesome album.

Always loved the drumming on this one, esp as the track plays out. Charlie gets to work in a bit of his swing band style.

OMG i was thinking the exact same thing while listening to this song, today...and saw your comment. this cd is definitely part of the soundtrack to my life, during the college/irresponsible years. resonates with many of my friends from that time, too and i know we all think about that time period when we hear anything from this particular album. it may be perverse to some, but i always wanted to play this particular tune, and also "rocks off" at my wedding reception. and i did. :cool:

Sorry friend, would have to disagree. Easily one of their best albums, by far.
RP should have a Stones Day.

This isn't the best track on this album but then this album has 18 great songs. One of the best albums of all time.

One of their best albums, if not their very best!
Pure rock n roll.
