US v. UK version[edit]

When they put Between the Buttons onto CD, did they keep the two separate versions? I know the Beatles mainly went with the British versions (with the one exception of Magical Mystery Tour) for all CDs on both sides of the Atlantic, but did The Stones do the same, or do the CDs in the US and UK vary accordingly

I have shopped everywhere for the rare UK import LP, I used to always ask at Bleeker Bob's downtown, he got so annoyed he used to put a sign up in the window for me. But now I see that for 60 bucks I can pick it up on Amazon. There are three used copies but the first says it includes Let's spend the night together from before the reprinting, which confused me. Is the seller, from NM, simply confused? Or was there first a brit print with the tracks on LP? There are two others, one mono one stereo, both around 60 to 100 bucks. The mono is more expensive because I guess it is more rare, which I found interesting too, quirky. But I can also now get the 45 with let's spend/ruby for 35 bucks.

Hello? Beatlemania? Wrong board dude. Please, when we're talking about Satanic let's not bring Magical Mysery Tour into the discussion and ruin things, though that bird from Germany with the death cab for cutie tassles was alright I'll say.

I'd like to suggest, btw, that we could get a Cockney translation of the page as well as Spanish and French and German.


That was the policy, when the Rolling Stones issued their back catalogue on Super Audio compact discs, that if the British and American versions of the album differed, then both versions would be issued. In the pre-CD era in Australia they released Between the Buttons with the British track listing. 06:26, 16 May 2014 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Eligius (talkcontribs)

baroque pop[edit]

which track is baroque pop, i think none of them. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.196.241.152 (talk) 20:06, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

you have to remember the zeitgeist of the times, the fashion. david turns mick onto the violin and dave's schtick is how the baroque is the essence of complexity for complexity's sake, but I don't think Keith ever bought in 100 percent. but just look at the fashion, art, architecture and interior design, especially the interior design of the late 60's. the stones ride this wave but also helped to create it to some extent. of course mick thought the whole thing was "rubbish" to begin with. but come on, mick is like 50 cent not miles, he pimps himself, he's the original pimp daddy, miles never listened to himself. there was a cockiness in that too though, but mick's being self-critical shouldn't effect the way people view the quality of the music on the album and it should be taken in context with altemont, satanic, and the mansion family in turns of the evolution of the times, or perhaps devolution. but certainly the art of the day, the minimalism of the tri-color field theorists like the now hot mark rothko presages or leads to punk, certainly warhol and the velvets with their three chord rock do if nothing else. between the buttons is also important because it comes right at the end of the motown 45 height and right before the concept album driven era of fm and lp.

Like fractal math, baroque complexity often can arise out of repititions of simple patterns. The baroque continues the high medieval well after the rebirth has refocused art, literature, science and music, and the old medieval choral tunings change with that as well. As did the instruments. So baroque might be the wrong term, but certainly romantic in the classical sense could not only apply to some of the tracks, the multitrack layered effects of dumbing down the 4-track recorder analog (which is why Mick felt the album was rubbish, the sound became muddled) on a track like "She Smiled Sweetly" echoes the sort of "warm" tones of the cover art (created by smearing vaseline on the lens) as opposed to the pixelation in digital photography and the analogous effect in digital music. In which it can lack "soul" or "warmth" or "vibrancy" which sounds all very warbly but relates to the technical aspects of wave forms and which we now find important in terms of choosing an Apple lossless codec over an mp3 (see Alan Parson's rant).

Brian Wilson[edit]

Just a note. Although it will most likely be deleted again, it appears that the source, a short Rhapsody interview with Brian Wilson indicates that he was present during the mixing of the album and was blown away by it or something along those lines. This seems like pertinent info if it can be cited properly. Publichall (talk) 08:47, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
