......I like the Stones early covers better than I like the Beatles covers.
I still love those early Stones albums. I remember back in the early 70s as a kid my mom found these 2 at a yard sale and bought them for me.... I still have them!......I like the Stones early covers better than I like the Beatles covers.
I think this is partially true, but can be overstated as well.The young Beatles were Rock and roll fans, the young Stones were blues fans.
I guess that tells us you like blues better than rock and roll
Well, I did. I was fascinated by the songs on the first three Stones albums, checking out the songwriting credits and then checking out the original artists. For me the Stones first three albums was my introduction to the blues, and American blues artists........Those of early 'boomers' who grew up on both the Beatles and Stones did not pay much attention to the blues through either of these bands, frankly......
I agree with the premise of this thread to a point.
The Stones covers may be of a slightly higher consistent quality but there is nothing in the Stones cover catalog that can touch the Beatles best covers: specifically 'Twist and Shout' (but I would also argue 'Money' for sure and maybe Long Tall Sally and Roll Over Beethoven). Twist and Shout is among the best records ever made, cover or original...
