    Correct. It's a level (or two) above.

    No mandolin but here is the original by J.B. Lenoir. Powerful stuff.

    Huh? That ain't it. Different song, different guy, and it's off by decades.

    Each to his or her own. But I think it's clear they upped their game tremendously with "Beggar's Banquet" and continued that upward trend with "Sticky Fingers" and "Let It Bleed." "Between The Buttons" has its charms, for sure, and I am fond of it, particularly as it has some overlooked underdog status. But most of the songs are rather similar in terms of their sound, other than "Something Happened To Me Yesterday." The Stones ranged much farther afield with the later three, from one of the all-time great intros on "Gimme Shelter" to the unexpected and completely improvised second half of "Can't You Hear Me Knocking." These albums represent a long sustained high point in their career arc, when they demonstrated most convincingly they were the greatest rock band in the world. (Dead and Zep notwithstanding.)

    IMHO, FWIW, AND YMMV, as always.

    BB and Let it Bleed also correspond to the arrival of Jimmy Miller. I'm biased, as these coincide with "that time in my adolescence," I'm forever wedded to the Jimmy Miller records.

    Well, sure! None of it is supposed to sound good isolated. The tracks are all there because they're all needed to make the song sound good.

    I heard a radio with Salaman Rushdie once. He was workiing on a novel, as usual, and the interviewer asked if it was good. He said no, he was still working on it if it were good, it'd be done.
