Brickwalled CD version still sucks and blows compared to dynamic Japanese SHM-CD.  Technology aside, a great record.  But what listener can triumph over technology?

Since you asked, I'm going to interrupt reggae night and play it RIGHT NOW.

Update: One of the problems of this recording on a high-fidelity system is that I can't play it as loud as I'd like to, for fear of tweeter blow-out.  Even the SHM version.  They made this for the "portable pic-nic players" of A Clockwork Orange.  Uncanny Bastrads!  Finance my hi-fi if you want kudos.

The most troublesome great record ever.  Outstrips the period complaints about Exile by miles and eons.  One needs Indiana Jones to obtain satisfaction in the artefact here - and he just landed on the wrong runway and has no time for contemporary recherche pleasures.  If it wasn't so good, we could hang all this controversy.

I spun it on vinyl today...first record on my turntable since the mono amps got recapped. Mick sounds like a black blues singer. The harmonica steals the show whenever he plays it. Darryl's bass lines are heavy on the groove...very enjoyable.

I've been listening to it quite a bit since I bought mine. Commit A Crime, Blue And Lonesome, Hoo Doo Blues, and Little Rain are my favorites but I truly like all of them. I have very, very seldom said that about any album. The singing, the musicianship, the overall performance of the songs, all are absolutely excellent. And something else rarely said about modern blues albums -- truly authentic.

That Blue and Lonesome has hit so big proves something I've been saying for years: people love blues! They just don't know the blues. No matter what type of music is ruling the charts at the moment, you get people together, play blues and they will love it. I wonder how many people rocking to this album realize that these songs are old even to the Stones themselves?

The best song on the album. Trust me I have been putting the time in seclusion with this disc. This song is really fucking good.

GrinJust Like I Treat You is positively epic. Sounds like it's from 1964. Cant play this track enough. Not a bad song on the record.

A great way to end their recording career.
I have little hope for a good new studio recording.
