Plea to Mick

On the Amazon page for The Dick Cavett Show - Rock Icons (which, at this point, I have no recollection how I got there), the review by David Reff of Dallas, Texas, contains a request for Mick Jagger:

But you've been suppressing live Taylor recordings and footage for four decades now -- nearly half a century. How about at long last giving us a break? There's the unreleased Decca live album from 1972. Ladies & Gentlemen on DVD. CS Blues. Film and audio footage from the 1971 UK tour. And the greatest Stones trove of all: superb recordings of your legendary 1973 European tour.

(Emphasis mine.)

I totally concur. By now, Sir must certainly be feeling a little disenchantment from his long time fans. But, for the sake of the hunger of his people, which hunger I know in my heart of hearts he can relate to, has felt himself, has known, and has lived, please, Mick, please, let us please have those recordings. Please.

to make up for the other

Did I ever tell you how my father met Mick Jagger and the Stones in a pub in Luxembourg? No. Really. They gave him an autographed album that he gave to my babysitter. Really. My son, A-, has a good friend whose uncle is Bill Wyman.

To +++++, I don't know what you're talking about. But, whatever it is, I would never dare to ask for any kind of atonement. That's not what this is about.

I admit that the Stones' failure to give it up -- by which I mean is it really still necessary to carry on the way they do? -- has made me less and less interested in what they're doing. None of which is germane to your plea.
