5.0 out of 5 stars Worth it, despite...
The most recent version of "Some Girls" has all of the problems of Universal Music's most recent re-release on it. After listening to the bonus disc, you won't be mad at yourself for buying this great release for (for me, at least) the FIFTH time (The Original vinyl in 1978, with the original graphics, bought at Sam Goody's flagship store in Manhattan, near Times Square...

1.0 out of 5 stars ....Keith, Keith what you doin' (whistle whistle)....
Boy, I do not like what I am reading in these reviews of these new re-masters. In his book, Life, Keith said he often wiped the original mix tape so no one could mess with them later. I am taking good care of my Virgin issues because of all this stuff I read about these new issues. I did not have a single problem with a single note of any of those Virgin issues. They were...

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth it, despite..., December 2, 2011
This review is from: Some Girls (Audio CD)
The most recent version of "Some Girls" has all of the problems of Universal Music's most recent re-release on it. After listening to the bonus disc, you won't be mad at yourself for buying this great release for (for me, at least) the FIFTH time (The Original vinyl in 1978, with the original graphics, bought at Sam Goody's flagship store in Manhattan, near Times Square. The Cassette, twice, the first one destroyed by playing it on a cold morning in my vehicle at the time, and then the Virgin CD, which is the best rendering of this, the best of this era in the Stones long history!)
The best bonus track is from an unlikely source, Hank Williams, Sr. "You win Again" with an angry tone, the Country/Western legend would never have dreamed of taking. "Claudine", should have been on the original release, but somehow it also doesn't feel right on this album. On a later album, perhaps, but it sat too long. It makes the cut at last, deservedly so, too. "Keep up Blues" fit the album better than "Claudine", but there had to have been a lively debate as to whether it would go on the album or not. It lost out in 1978, and like "Claudine", it waited 33 years too long to be heard. "Tallahasse Lassie" sounds like it would have been on "Exile on Main Street", and did not "fit" "Some Girls". The audio quality of all but "Petrol Blues" makes me wonder why these recordings sound so much better than the album/CD proper. Universal should have done a comprehensive re-working of the album, and chose not to. That having been said, the bonus tracks make this a must buy for Stones junkies. Keep the Virgin CD in your deluxe edition and put Universal's lesser CD in your vehicle du jour provided it has a CD player ;-)!

I am taking good care of my Virgin issues because of all this stuff I read about these new issues. I did not have a single problem with a single note of any of those Virgin issues. They were awesome. The history of the Stones need some real help....Keith, Keith what you doin' (whistle whistle)......by the way, this review got roped in with all the other issues of this BUT to top it all off: you mean to tell me they put this terrible sounding, distorted issue in a deluxe box? Tell me this cannot be true?
