I just love how wfmu instantly turns me on to stuff. first time i heard about this stax book that looks great! bill fox is further proof! michael played bird of the world two years a goo and I've been a fan ever since!
  11:35am Officer Pupp:

There's a really great piece about Bill Fox in a music issue of The Believer from 2007 or thereabouts. Well worth tracking down.
  11:38am Johnny V:

where can you buy that Imposters cover?
You going to tell the folks about Nothing to Hide?
  11:39am scott:

That version of Out of Time isn't technically a Stones track. I'm pretty sure it's the demo/guide vocal for Chris Farlowe's version (they both have the same backing track), and Mick is probably the only Stone who appears on it.
Avatar 11:41am Michael Shelley:

I think Andrew Loog Old Ham finished it off after they fired him
Avatar 11:41am Michael Shelley:

the white girl backing vocals kind of give it away
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43am davex:

Last three tracks: Great mix of stuff!
  11:51am Officer Pupp:

Scott's right, it also proves that Jagger was incapable of just going through the motions - that guide vocal is phenomenal.
  11:51am scott:

I'm pretty sure that that version of "Out of Time" was cut for Chris Farlowe to sing his (superior) vocal over. It's the same finished backing track, and the version with Jagger's vocal was exhumed for the Metamorphosis album, which is a shameless ripoff but nonetheless has some cool stuff on it.
  11:52am scott:

Agreed, Officer Pupp! It's a pretty cool vocal, despite the fact that it was never intended for the public to hear.
  11:53am scott:

And the Chris Farlowe version is killer!

So my question for Robert Quine is: Do you listen to Thelonious Monk? Do you see any similarities in your styles? And how do you teach yourself to play such brilliant guitar? —Chris Good

A: Thank you for your nice comments. My favorite solos of mine are the ones where I take outrageous chances, and sometimes land on my feet. (One recent example is 'Pale Blue Eyes' on a CD by Reiss—Vibe of Life—but I have to warn you that I only play on a few tracks.) There are a lot of influences for this approach—Jeff Beck with the Yardbirds is the most important. And there are a lot of jazz influences. I can't play jazz, but I've listened enough for it to have affected my approach. Yeah, Thelonious Monk is one of those influences. My favorite stuff of his is on the 3-CD set The Complete Prestige Recordings. The two takes of 'The Man I Love'—talk about taking chances! —Robert Quine
