Product Description

Amazon.ca

It used to be said there were only two sure things in the world: death and taxes. Add a third--a live Rolling Stones album every three years. In what's essentially become a flourishing, if decidedly spotty subcatalog (the notable exception being the stellar Get Your Ya-Ya's Out, culled from the band's 1969 performance peak), 1982's Still Life is the band's fourth live collection and marks the beginning of a long stretch of laurel-resting. Though recorded in support of the band's Tattoo You album, eight of the scant 10 Stones tracks here are either hits from their early years or covers of favorite rock and R&B chestnuts. Though they would go on to have an artistic comeback (or three), this collection sometimes finds them struggling against being their own tribute band. --Jerry McCulley

3.0 out of 5 stars Ehhhhh............ June 22 2004
Format:Audio CD
This cd displays the tension that would come close to obliterating the Stones in the Eighties. That's all I'll say about it (I'm trying not to be snide about Mick Taylor's "stand-in"), but the one thing that shows how sloppily this cd/album was slapped together was that THIS WAS THE SECOND 'LIVE' ALBUM BY THE STONES THAT BEGAN WITH "UNDER MY THUMB" AND CLOSED WITH "SATISFACTION." Don't believe me? Check out "Got Live If You Want It."

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the Stones' most interesting live effort Aug. 10 2003
Format:Audio CD
The Rolling Stones have put out numerous live albums - they'll soon reach double-digit figures, actually, something which only Deep Purple have done before.
And none of them are bad. A few, like "Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out" are even great, but "Still Life" is merely pretty good.
The sound is somewhat thin and one-dimentional, especially the drums, and the CD is quite short at only forty minutes.
There are some good performances, though...the track list draws heavily from the Stones' 60s releases with songs like "Satisfaction", "Let's Spend The Night Together", "Time Is On My Side" and the catchy "Under My Thumb".
A couple of generic rock n' roll tunes, "Going To A Go-Go" and "Twenty Flight Rock", are also included. I would have preferred some good, solid live renditions of the best material from the Stones' then-current album "Tattoo You", but maybe that's just me.
"Still Life" could have been better, but it's not a bad album. It's just not particularly original or exciting either.

5.0 out of 5 stars The fourth one Nov. 8 2002
Format:Audio CD
This the fourth Stones live album, and it is one of my favorite Stones albums. The album features the highlights from their '81
tour to support the album " Tattoo You ". This album opens with
Duke Ellington's " Take The A - Train " ushering the band out &
about onstage. The track stops abruptly, and we hear the famous
guitar solo that opens up " Under My Thumb ", done in real good
style here. Mick's voice is stronger than ever. The song's tone
is much more melodramatic and serious than the original version
recorded in the studio in 1966. After that comes an really good
version of " Let's Spend The Night Together ". This performance
shows how good the band is live. After that comes a rocking and
rolling performance of " Shattered ", which is done in a really
great version here, although Mick sings too fast, and sometimes
can't keep up with the band. After that comes an excellent ver-
sion of the rock classic " Twenty Flight Rock ", and their ver-
sion is done in true Stones form. After that comes a good vers-
ion of the Miracles' " Going To A Go - Go ". After that is the
rocker " Let Me Go ", which is done way too fast but is given
to us with great effort. After that, the band dips back into
their early years for a great version of " Time Is On My Side "
that is given in sledgehammer effect. Mick's singing is great
on this one. After that is an exemplary cover of the classic by
the Temptations " Just My Imagination ". This is my favorite
track on the whole album. Mick does some great singing, and the
band's playing is excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Great Album ! Nov. 7 2002
Format:Audio CD
In 1981, the Rolling Stones embarked on an American tour in support of their album Tattoo You. This tour was the result
of this great album. True, there could have been a lot more
song selections, and the sound is horrible on lots of the
tracks. But it still is great. The album opens with the Duke
Ellington song Take The A - Train, which leads into the Stones
classic Under My Thumb. The song has a more dramatic feel to it,
and Mick's voice is in good shape. After that is a good version
of Let's Spend The Night Together, followed by a great version of
Shattered . Unfortuneately, this is one of the songs with bad sound. After that is a great version of the 1950s' rock classic
Twenty Flight Rock, followed by an excellent version of the
MIracles track Going To A Go - Go. After that is an excellent
version of the rocker Let Me Go, and a beautiful version of the
old classic Time Is On My Side. Then comes the best rendition of
Just My Imagination ( Running Away With Me ) I have ever heard.
It is even better than the version by The Temptations. After that
comes an excellent Start Me Up, followed by a rocking version of
Satisfaction. It is excellent. It is taken at a really fast pace, even for a live version. All in all, a great live album.

5.0 out of 5 stars The 5th Live Album Oct. 27 2002
Format:Audio CD
Still Life (American Concert 1981) was originally released June 1, 1982, it went to #1 in both the UK & US. The album includes the single hits Going To A Go Go (backed by Beast Of Burden) and Time Is On My Side (live version)(backed by Twenty Flight Rock). Both Going To A God Go and Twenty Flight Rock had not been recorded previously and were not issued on any other albums. Most people know the music, so in my reviews I try to give you data on the sessions and interesting facts connected with the songs and the album. Here we go:
The album was recorded at during the 81 American tour in NJ (11-5), Chicago (11-25), Largo, MD (12-7/8), Tempe (12-13), and Hampton Roads (12-18/19).
Interesting notes include:
.....the Dec 13 Tempe, Arizona concert at Sun Devil Stadium was filmed and became the movie Let's Spend The Night Together (still available here on Amazon.com)
.....Before the Rosemont Horizon shows in Chicago the Stones showed up at the Checkerboard Lounge to jam with Muddy Waters in his last recorded performance before he died in 1983 (videotapes of the show are still popular in the bootleg market)
.....The Stones rehearsed for the tour during August and September at Longview Farm in Brookfield, MA. It was the 1st major corporate sponsored tour, entertaining >2 million paying fans and grossing $60 million.
.....Mick was not getting along with Keith and Woody at this time....they called him "Brenda" and things got so bad that the tour contract required Mick to stay off the stage when Keith did Little T&A.
.....Keith hated the cherry picker that Mick used during the concerts, but when Mick offered to dump it if Keith would give up drugs for the duration of the tour, the cherry picker stayed

A lot of these songs are from the concert they gave that was broadcast live on (now defunct) ON TV. I didn't have ON TV in 1981, but I listened to the simulcast on the radio. Read more
