It's just a click away

Our friend Frank, whose deep appreciation of rock music comes from years of building and playing guitars, sent us an interesting link yesterday. He wanted us to check out this deconstructed version of the Rolling Stones' recording of the song "Gimme Shelter." It's pretty remarkable, particularly Keith Richards's searing lead guitar work. If only our mind heard music that way.

Noodling around the site, we also came upon an isolation of James Jamerson's bass line on the Four Tops' "Standing in the Shadows of Love." James was simply out of his mind -- on this and countless other Motown tracks -- and we teens of the time all benefited.

A hat tip across the miles to Frank.

This is some brilliant stuff.

Thanks. What a site. I listened to the vocals to "Just My Imagination" and it was profound. There are vocals that are aided by being a little buried in the mix, but the ones with standalone greatness are stunning.

Not how I planned to spend my Saturday morning, but I can't break from the site. Have my good headphones on. My wife is going to kill me if I don't get off and get busy soon.

Great fun, and so much diversity. This could be a fertile new time waster (not like I need any more time wasters . . . ).

Finding the Funk Brothers instrumental isolations on this site is golden.....

I just gotta add...


Now this is the core of dance music....

Thanks Jack, VERY cool site. I could spend hours here.

Listening to David Lee Roth singing Runnin' with the Devil" was hilarious
