Rolling Stones singles collection London years 2

It is so much fun to look in the booklet which was in the original first issue of this 3CD set. You saw the front yesterday. Later editions just give the three (or in Japan even four) cd's sec. It's too bad.

CD 2 (The Pop Period) has eight songs that you certainly need. Among them are such timeless gems as the middle-class bashing 19th Nervous Breakdown and hey, there's Jumpin' Jack Flash ! Funny how the studio version sounds so 'soft' when compared to any live version, right? On the other hand, the magnificent guitar/bass/drums intro was never done live, so you need to hear it in any case. But that's not all (luckily). There are two wonderful Aftermath-style ballads, Sad Day and Long Long While, which would fit in with that album quite perfectly. There's the glorious B-Side to Have You Seen Your Mother..., a mean, echoey, killer blues rocker Who's Driving Your Plane, one of the hardest, most uncompromised tunes they recorded during that period; were it released in 1964, it could have become a classic, as it is, it was just overshadowed by even better songs. There's the famous 'psychedelic' single We Love You, a trippy, piano/Mellotron/brass dominated chant with Lennon/McCartney on backing vocals and lyrics like 'We love you/We love you/And we hope you love we, too', written as a 'thank you' for fans who supported the Stones in jail, and its B-side, the gorgeous ballad Dandelion. And there's the Stones' goodbye to psychedelia, Child Of The Moon, yet another tune that's quite trippy, but this time melodic and wonderfully gentle.

Tracklist CD II:
1) Gotta Get Away; 2) 19th Nervous Breakdown; 3) Sad Day; 4) Paint It, Black; 5) Stupid Girl; 6) Long Long While; 7) Mother's Little Helper; 8) Lady Jane; 9) Have You Seen Your Mother Baby Standing In The Shadow?; 10) Who's Driving Your Plane?; 11) Let's Spend The Night Together; 12) Ruby Tuesday; 13) We Love You; 14) Dandelion; 15) She's A Rainbow; 16) 2000 Light Years From Home; 17) In Another Land; 18) The Lantern; 19) Jumpin' Jack Flash; 20) Child Of The Moon.

'Clickable' links are for you downloaders soooo convienent but the disadvantage is they don't seem to 'last' long.
The Blogger gets a lot of comments 'please re-up'...... Other, more appropriate/interesting comments, they sadly don't get.... :(
So you will have to do a little work to get the link.
This seems, in my opinion, the best deal between 'protecting' my links and the least effort for you.

Of course you understand to replace in r#pidsh#re twice the # in an a otherwise you don't have a 'valid' link !!

Pass to extract the file (but remember you need ALL three !) : JeanDupree_GFF_061110
The file is a small 60MB, 'cause the songs are only in low bitrate 128kbits.

The next depends, amongst other things, on your security options in your browser and by so the ability to copy/paste the link.
