The Rolling Stones - Conquer America (1988)

Rock | FLAC | 226 Mb

Like the Beatles album that's also called Conquer America, this documents live appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show, which the Stones guested on five times between 1964 and 1967. Thirteen tracks from all of those broadcasts are collected here, and although they can't compare to the Beatles blitzkrieg on Ed Sullivan, which was a cultural event, they're solid relics for the serious Stones fan. Includes live versions of all of their biggest mid-'60s hits, along with less-traveled goodies like "Little Red Rooster"; they aren't much different from the records (a little sloppier, actually), but have a pleasantly raw touch. Sound is very good (considering the standards of the era vis-à-vis unreleased recordings), and the performances are mostly totally live, though a few (like "As Tears Go By") were obviously sung with the aid of backing tracks from the records. This contains the infamous version of "Let's Spend the Night Together" in which the title was changed to a slurred "Let's Spend Some Time Together" in order to avoid offending the host and the American guardians of cultural good taste.
