Best Of Sure The One You Need [Acid Project Special, 3CD]

Various dates and venues. Very good audio.

Here is another labour of love…

Thanks to CaptainAcid who compiled and “gently” remastered the tracks. As this compilation includes officially released tracks, these have been omitted (refer to the respective artwork for details).

CaptainAcid noted:

Here is a compilation (on three discs ) of my 13-disc project, “Sure The One You Need” (Keith’s rare and not so rare recordings), Best Of… Although few things are different. Some tracks included here were not on those 13 discs, like Love Overdue (bonus track from Keith’s last solo album), Victor Hugo (Foxes In The Boxes), Make No Mistake (Extended Version), Feel On Baby (Dub Version). Some other tracks are in better sound quality here, than on original 13-disc set (because i have found better versions since then, or did a better remaster).

Thanks also to Sebastian Kruger for the illustrations; and to Mr D for the artwork.

  2. Keith and The Stones have stayed to long at the party…. they really should move along

  3. Too True….Too True….

  4. Hello to you all. Has anybody recognized, that Golden Earring will celebrate ther 50th stage anniversary soon in Amsterdam. Isn’t there any interesting music for us collectors? Bye by the Chester

    By Chester on Nov 26, 2015

  5. @Chester:
    Bless you! Yes, I’m aware of Earring’s tenure and spout it to anyone who’ll listen: their longevity as a continuously recording and touring act is peered only by the Stones and Bob Dylan. Most in the States don’t know because they haven’t had a record deal here nor toured in decades. But the music remains strong to my ear: 1999’s Paradise In Distress and 2002’s Millbrook U.S.A. are two of their best in my opinion.

    Maybe somebody has a recording of one of the 3 or 4 for shows they did in the UK a couple years back, the first they’d done in outside of Europe in ages?

  6. Thanks for the Keith Richards tracks. I have most of them on bootleg LP’s so it is nice to have the digital versions.

  7. Was ‘The Nearness of You’ ever released? Love Keith’s version of that…

    By Dano on Nov 29, 2015

  8. Dano, “Nearness… ” was released as part of a live set, but that never matched the wonderfully intimate piano & vocal Toronto demo.
