    How about that?

    [QUOTE=wiki]"Sway" is a song by the English rock 'n roll band The Rolling Stones from their 1971 album Sticky Fingers. It was also released as the b-side of the "Wild Horses" single in June 1971. This single was released in the US only. Initial pressings of the single contain an alternate take; later pressings include the album version instead.
    Credited to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, "Sway" is a slower blues song and was the first song recorded by the band at Stargroves. Although the song is credited to Jagger/Richards, Mick Taylor has always stated that he wrote this song with Jagger, as well as "Moonlight Mile" from the same album, when Richards was not even present.
    Ain't flinging tears out on the dusty ground for all my friends out on the burial ground. Can't stand the feeling getting so brought down. It's just that demon life has got me in its sway.

    The song features a bottleneck slide guitar solo towards the middle of the song and a dramatic outro solo performed by Taylor. The strings on the piece were arranged by Paul Buckmaster, who also worked on other songs from Sticky Fingers. Keith Richards, added his backing vocals but had provided no guitar to the track.
    It was performed live for the first time in Columbus, Ohio, and then at many of the shows on the band's A Bigger Bang Tour in 2006.[/QUOTE]

    Richards may be a sociopath; but he found heaven with that open G tuning. It was natural and effortless; even Clapton may have complained in the music press that all "Richards was doing was moving one or two fingers..."

    Sticky Fingers and Exile are about Keith going to town with that G tuning; really creative.

    BTW, this just in: Mick Taylor should get credit as his fullback.:D

    Marky Ramone was the drummer for Dust then. That's a Frazetta painting, "Snow Giants"

    I have Sticky Fingers on vinyl. This girl I know somehow found all these CLASSIC albums that were in mint condition and this dolt was using them, NO SH!TTING YOU, to decorate her wall for a party. I think she had already put up a Beatles classic and something else that drove me insane and she was about to put up the Sticky Fingers and I went, "Not a chance in hell." I took the album from her, put it in my car, and saved it from her stupidity.

    Exile is my favorite Stones album.

    Do you remember the Indie record store on 25A right before the Cross-Island? I loved that place. Nick Lowe, Killing Joke, Pigbag, OMD, Ramones, early U2 CLASH Steel Pulse Black Uhuru James Blood Ulmer Nona Hendryx ...

    I got my copy of Dust's Hard Attack from the guitarist in IM Goode & the Gags (straightouta manhasset); I have never ever seen it for sale in a store.

    Know? I practically lived there @ 81-84, Metro Records (dba as "Ortem" LOL) Marathon & Northern. Cool enough to have UB40 AND Q65....no need to drive into Unique (St. Mark's Pl) when I could buy "Klactoveesedstein" at Metro...the heyday of WLIR

    Right up from Grand Union that had the bank tiled in mosaic "Home Savings Bank" and right before Scobee Grill 'n OTB at Little Neck Parkway.

    There was another store that would do trade (used) up the street that I cant remember right now. I do remember dancin' up a storm at the revived Pppermint Lounge to "Papa's Got A Brand New Pigbag"...(not to be confused w/ Peebag...)

    After Marky joined the Ramones a buncha the Dust LPs were unearthed an' made it to new/used indie stores

    Exile is my LEAST favorite Stones LP (Aftermath UK version is probably #1)

    PS Hope you didn't trade your Another Day and 11 O'Clock Tick Tock 45s away. Worth a small fortune now...

    Another underrated LP:

    [QUOTE=lolepop;4346900]pfffftttt - go listen to "ride a white swan" for the nth time:kitty:[/QUOTE]

    Although I like the tune, this is not my "go to" T-Rex song.

    Someday, go check out a truly underrated record by Marc Bolan, [I]Tanx[/I]. Tons of strangely constructed, harder edged songs written at the cusp of punk. (Marc had established a friendship, and wanted to tour with seminal punk outfit, The Damned, before his tragic death in 1977.) Amazingly, "20th Century Boy" was omitted from the album, only to resurface later as one of Bolan's most recognizable tunes. Again, this is Marc playing with greater ferocity than in the past.

    Speaking of punk and The Damned, their eponymous first record, produced by Nick Lowe, deserves mention as a very underrated album from the punk era.

    I can understand; you go with the well-constructed pop of the Mod era. Exile was a deconstruction, maybe. "All Down The Line" kicks my ass every time. :D

    I remember all those places; we saw "Easy Money" at that theater. Scobee's I remember as the "Goodfellas" themed diner. :P

    My failing was instead of just buying singles I'd buy LPs and most Punk-New Wave LPs had a lot o' filler.

    Little Neck theater. MovieWorld wounded it then when its AC broke it closed for good.

    I really enjoyed the BB , LIB and SF Lps as a kid (especially the Let It Bleed cover- still cracks me up every time, whether its the pizza or the silver drage'es or the bike tyre rim its always sumpin' else )
