    It was 50 years ago today that The Rolling Stones started with Brian Jones publishing an ad looking for a band.

    I thought Mr. Burns took care of them.

    Well, he took care of Brian Jones anyway since he drowned in a swimming pool.

    I heard Bill Wyman and possibly Mick Taylor will be joining the band on their 50th anniversary tour.

    Let It Bleed is one of my all-time favourite albums. 19th Nervous Breakdown is my favourite Stones song.

    let it bleed is such a jam

    albums like this, hwy 61 revisited, and zeppelin ii just achieve that perfect length of nine songs

    I agree. I can put this album on and never skip a song (though i do have to flip the tape over. That's right, I still listen to the occasional tape).

    Emotional Rescue is pretty good, but I have to admit I agree with Riviera. I'm not the biggest Stones fan( I'm not familiar with the deep cuts you selected Melody) but I do respect their longevity and contribution to rock n' roll.

    Good song, a lot more bluesy for my taste (for Stones material anyway.) I like their darker more atmospheric songs.

    I find Ruby Tuesday or even Angie to be more effective in that sense. The oustanding harp playing (is that Brian Jones?) overshadows most of the other elements in this song.

    For wordsmiths I much prefer Bruce Springsteen(the next Dylan! ), but I do have my Dylan favourites: Subterranean Homesick Blues, The Hurricane, Tangled Up In Blue, Blowing In The Wind etc.

    You can purchase the massive box set that came out a few years ago or do you already have it?

    i've drooled over that thing, but like many of those box set reissues that constantly come out, i just don't have the disposable income
