    Wow. Only 2000 copies sold apiece. Guess it’ll be a collectors item:

    Hallelujah and thank you Doxa. That was a nice read and spot on. Me like the songs and i like the way they were released. Of course i like the vinyl releases, but thank God for the net era and the streaming era, i discover some good music almost every day, for free 🙂

    Great read there, Doxa. Thanks. The Alok mix is my pick of the bunch as well, if I had to choose.

    I’m also glad this came out separately. As I mentioned earlier in the thread, I’d much rather have the Stones album be a cohesive band project rather than a Bridges To Babylon type 50/50 affair, and there’s no need to drag Keith kicking and screaming into a song like this when things can be put out online so easily and quickly these days. Also good to see Mick keep busy while the Stones project was on hold while Ronnie got over his surgery.

    Doxa – thank you, great posts.

    “Jagger claims that he made the songs in April and wanted to release them now when they are still somehow ‘relevant’. Who knows, what he means by that.”

     

    Good question, is that one of those Jaggerisms, where he tries to distance himself from a pop song? The actual song isnt good enough and it sounds like he’s refering to an ad, a marketing tool. The lack of promotion is perhaps meant to make this look like  something you happen find on youtube, a song that gains a following online?

    “Little by little I start to understand what the much hype about new ‘democracy’ of net-era music is all about. Not just that the music is so easily to released and reached, but how that ‘easiness’ affects to the very nature of the music and of its creative processes. Surely there are all those downloads and physical copies available, but those are not the ones driving this project, but more like by-products. It can be, as proposed, that Universal is here ‘testing waters’ not only by the way the song(s) sound, but also and thereby (probably) bridging the way for a new Rolling Stones release, though my view is that their record company is well awere of the potential audience of a Rolling Stones release still consists of people buying old-time physical and digital copies; in the case of catalogue artists like the Stones, the big – or any – money is still there, not in streaming or youtube business.”

     

    I read that just now (missed it the first time, believe it or not). Wow. Yes, I think you’re on to something.

    the songs are good but don’t come close to Memo from Turner

    ^^^^^^True, Nita but let’s remember. During Turner,  Jagger was still surrounded by THE STONES. He was working with Anita (the 6th Stone). And he hadn’t begun his meandering into the so-called ‘hip world of the newest thing’ thing. And after the movie shoots, KEITH was waiting outside for Anita. Methinks Keith’s mere presence added to the quality of the tune. (Merely my own humble opinion).

    Nice and funny read, thank you Doxa, (times they are a changin’). I grew up with a music freak of a dad. Some of Our quality time nowadays is putting on a (Stones) vinyl record, open a beer and talk about whatever we want to talk about. I remember when i was a kid and put on a record and he told me to be careful and not make any scratches. About the streaming era it sure have made us pay for concert ticket’s though. I like that Jagger is doing this for us and i’m grateful for that. CD’s suck’s and i have a couple of thousands of them. I only buy Stones cd’s nowadays. I buy all kinds of vinyl records though. Don’t tell anyone but i love to nick music and i have 7o ooo songs on a couple of hard disc’s. The sad thing about the streaming era is the record store’s slowly dissapears, i like the atmosphere in record shop’s. Looking for treasures is always fun. About Mick Jagger is facinating how a 74 year old man still have the energy to do this and he is doing good. I put on “England lost” at a party a couple of weekends ago and people (some of them in theyre 30’s) liked it. Hope he keep doing this and i hope there are more new Stones music to come.

    Just noticed something – his Twitter account is all solo stuff rather than the colours of the No Filter Tour. https://mobile.twitter.com/MickJagger ~CE 🌷 ETA: Maybe the other accounts are only solo stuff as well. I’m not sure.

     

    Call me a cynical old sod but Mick only seems to get back with the Stones to make serious money.

    Its funny really that Mick is seen as the Stone who likes to do something different and new, when he in fact is the person who chooses to sing the same old same bet Warhorses decade after decade.

    Andrew T was right, Gotta Take A Shit, em sorry i mean GGAG is completely forgotten , well it never really took off did it. Can’t understand why Mick didn’t play it live on American prime time TV. I wanted to see the old Devil move like Jagger to it. Would have given the song another dimension. we didn’t even get to see him in the video’s. Oh well never mind.

    I actually liked a couple of the re mixes.

    Well you are trying to incite something with your reaction to my post.

    Gotta Take A Shit, those are not my words, i think someone who posted before me came up with that one.

    Just thought it was funny, the sort of thing Keith would say.  Keith’s always inciting something , we would die of boredom without a bit of cynical incitement thrown into the mix. 😀

    Yeah that was me with the Gotta Take A Shit. It’s a riff on Keith’s infamous Dogshit In The Doorway remark. Humour for Stones Interview Anoraks.
