What's All This Then

Why should I care what this guy has to say?

The correct answer is that you shouldn’t. We’re all entitled to our opinions. Develop your own. I try to be sane and rational, but that may change with the level of caffeine intake. I’m just telling my stories in the hopes they may amuse and/or inform others. And... I Confess... I'm showing off my bitchen collection a bit.

The Rolling Stones - Steel Wheels B-Sides


1989 saw a reunion of sorts for The Rolling Stones. The resulting album and tour - Steel Wheels - was a huge success for the band.  The tour saw the first of many things that would become staples for future stadium shows - reserved seats on the floor, giant sets, video screens, expensive beer.   It also saw the beginning of hugely expensive tickets - $35.   At the time it was an outrage.

Still - the band saw fit to produce a few B-Sides at a time when the 45 was dying.  At the time we were seeing the rise of the CD single and the silly 'cassingle'

so here we have

Fancy Man Blues (the B-Side of Mixed Emotions)




Cook Cook Blues (The B-Side of 'Rock and a Hard Place')

To the best of my knowledge, this 45 is the only place this ever appeared.  It was tough to find at the time 




I Wish I'd Never Met You (B-Side of 'Almost Hear You Sigh')

Not released in the USA.
