4.0 out of 5 stars Worth the price for Albert Collins "Freeze", April 11, 2013

This review is from: Blues Came From Texas (Audio CD)
Good overview of Texas guitar. Collins' "Freeze" is hard to find and exceptional. The pre-rock star Johnny Winter cut is also excellent in the classic Chicago style. Who's the harp player?

The old blues cats in Chicago always said Hooker was the best! Excellent overview from many different labels. Sound is good.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed Bag On This One, July 4, 2010
Let me start by saying that I have been a big Stones fan since the mid-1970's. I saw them live here in Chicago in 1978 and 1981 and am a die-hard as well as a semi-profesional musician. In my opinion, the last time (no pun intended) the Stones were top shelf was 1978, as "Tattoo You" was mostly 1970's outtakes. Having said that, here are my comments on the CD reissue of "new/old" tunes:

-Pass The Wine-Known as "Sophia Loren" on bootlegs. Mick Jagger stopped singing and started barking in 1976 on "Black And Blue" and this 2009 or 2010 overdubbed vocal testifies to that. This is a mediocre backing track dressed up for release. Is that overdubbed Mick Taylor and horns here? Horrible overdubbed Mick Jagger harmonica, if you can call it that! If Mick wants to discuss his vocals and harp over a Gibson's steak on his dime that would be fine with me.

-Plundered My Soul-This is easily the best cut on the "new/old" CD. The Taylor intro, whether from 1971 or 2009, is excellent. Vocal, obviously from 2009 or 2010, is quite good. The Keith Richards rhythm riffs, certainly from 1971, are exceptional in the in-the-pocket "Tumbling Dice" style. Taylor's fine lead riffs are all over the track.

-I'm Not Signifying-Very familiar from boots. Original vocal and overdubbed piano intro. Mick Taylor's blues riffs are exceptional, but the track (and riffs) is/are shortened. Interesting chord progression. Overdubbed harp is obnoxious. Horns on the outro are reminiscent of Elmo Bishop's Alligator work.

-Following The River-Nice ballad, again marred by Mick Jagger's 2009 vocals. Backup vocals and strings also sound current.

-Dancing In The Light-Having listened to this on boots for 30 years, the 2009 vocals seem curious. The lyrics, however, are interesting. Great to hear that rollicking piano again! The barking on the outro is disconcerting.

-So Divine ("Aladdin Story" to Stones heads)-Slightly reminiscent of "Paint It Black"? Another 2009 vocal. Overdubbed Mick Taylor riffs at around 2:30? Did the rest of the boys OK this release?

-Loving Cup-This is the boot version many of us know, with "GD drunk" replaced. Nice guitar interplay, which the band seemingly forgot in later years.

-Soul Survivor-This embarrassing take of Keith's drunken/stoned ramblings over the released backing track should never have seen the light of day.

-Good Time Women-Great Keith/Mick J./Mick T. intro riff familiar to us as an early version of "Tumbling Dice". Unlike "Tumbling Dice", Mick Taylor's lead and riffs are all over this track. Second best on the CD by a long shot.

-Title 5-What is this crap? My wife likes it but I am unimpressed. Why release this?

Also, the alternate version of "All Down The Line" is available on the 45 if you track it down. There are also other unreleased cuts that could have been put on this CD!
