Reading thru this post I am not sure I follow the views on James being somehow less orginal or more commercial than Ron. I love Funhouse era material and totally recognise Ron's art in it but Raw Power will always be my fave just cos of the sheer intensity of his playing. The wiki has it on the money:-

He played louder and raunchier than almost anybody at the time, with a jagged high-energy approach

Thats his originalty right there. His thing was to tap right back into the source of R&R and re-charge it, make it matter again. I totally accept some material post RP is less original like Open up and Bleed, Kill City but I still don't picture the guy writing the materail with his pension in mind

Harmonia, I totally agree with you (and applaud your choice of user name, by the way), re "His thing was to tap right back into the source of R&R and re-charge it, make it matter again." And I would stand up for James as one of the greatest rock'n'roll guitar players of all time, and often have/do. But ...

Re the originality stakes: Barring Shake Appeal and the two slow songs, which are both quite Stonesy, the actual song "Raw Power", specifically, and to a lesser but still noticeable extent the songs on "Raw Power" the album in general, all share a common blueprint, and this song was four years old in 1972 ...
