the rolling stones ARE de facto on topic in a reggae forum.

They are on this forum.

Now listening to Sucking In the 70's. Famously made fun of by Lester Bangs, the album's actually pretty good, with only a few downright clunkers

a lot of people made fun of lester bangs, for much better reason.

but sucking in the 70s was not a real rolling stones album...a compilation of singles and outtakes put out to go on tour or something.

though it does have the good version of "dance" and a couple decent live tracks as i recall.

the reason for my earlier comment: my firm belief that the rolling stones, most notably keith richards and ronny wood, have done more for reggae than all other rock bands put together. and im willing to back up that statement. heres a first backup: bob marleys live album...look at the notes: recorded on the rolling stones mobile studio and the best sounding live album ever (that last imo). theres plenty more where that one came from.

one love

they also signed peter tosh to their label but i think maybe the clash and the 2-tone outfits did more to promote reggae

you're in america, no? bands like selector, specials and madness were HUGE in the uk and their music was reeking ska and rocksteady, the punk movement and the clash in particular brought roots reggae to a much wider audince, as much as i love the rolling stones i can't see them being more responsible for reggae appreciation than either of these, at least in the uk

exhibit 4, 5, 6:

hey negrita (blows chunks but its still a song)

that festival song, what was it? (sucks too but what the hell, no one said mick jagger could sing reggae)

covering "winsome", calling it "too rude" and lining half pints pockets with money. again, not much of a version to write home about but at least they try. we are talking about rock groups here, remember.

bonus exhibit:

cracking up from love you live, only side worth listening to from el mocambo club in toronto. peer ska take on bo diddley classic.

more bonus:

ron wood playing guitar with bob marley and wailers, berkeley 79 or sometime.

ron wood playing guitar with toots and maytals, earlier this year.

keith richards contributing song to toots' album, true love

keith richards sitting around having drinks and spliffs at my place whilst selecting tunes for me to play (hey i can dream cant i?)

keith richards lending guitar to shine eye gal, black uhuru 12" on d-roy and associated album

keith richards solo single: harder they come c/w run rudolph run
(actually a very nice version of both)

oh so many more...will post as they come to me. or not.

one love
