I have a slight preference for No Security over Still Life because of it's idiosyncratic track list myself. As I said earlier, how many recordings of Jumpin Jack Flash, Honky Tonk Women or Satisfaction does one person need?
Well, the DVD is available separately for what I consider a fair price. I'm just such a sucker for those lavish box sets with the unnecessary/useless "extras."
I did manage to score the deluxe box set of the Ladies and Gentlemen: The Rolling Stones
DVD and I am now the very proud owner of a Rolling Stones scarf.
It is getting pretty crazy though, they are absolutely inundating us with releases over the last few years.
Oh, I agree that it is great to have some "rare" tracks performed over the same old warhorses but I would have picked a completely different tracklist. Still, No Security is probably the last live album that they will release with such a "strange" set of songs.
Okay, you said you were a big Bob Dylan fan and if you are buying live Rolling Stones albums you must be a big fan of them also but who else do you really dig? I think that I am roughly half your age but we seem to have somewhat similar tastes.
