Product Description

Product Description

Digitally remastered reissue of the veteran British Rock band's 1986 album.

Amazon.ca

En 1986, le torchon brûle entre Mick Jagger et Keith Richards. Ce dernier prend les rênes et fait enregistrer des voix provisoires aux chanteurs de rhythm'n'blues Bobby Womack et Don Covay. Jagger, vexé, passe au studio quand il est vide et chante les voix définitives. Ambiance... Et à bien écouter ce disque la tension est palpable. Les seuls titres paisibles sont une ballade ("Sleep Tonight") et un reggae ("Too Rude"), tous deux chantés par Richards. Conscient du fait qu'une bonne reprise vaut mieux qu'un original peu inspiré, Jagger impose le vieux succès soul de Bob & Earl, "Harlem Shuffle", sur lequel il rugit à plaisir. La vraie réussite du disque reste cependant la chanson d'amour vache "One Hit (To The Body)" avec son canevas de riffs acoustiques et électriques plus stoniens que nature. --Hubert Deshouse

Wow,quite the polarity in reviews for this album. In cleaning out a drawer found my old cassette of Dirty Work and decided to rip it into mp3s. Even the people who hate this album aknowledge there are three solid songs, and I would venture four are above average, only a couple of dullards so it's gotta be scored above average. The power guitar, the snarling vocals are right there. I recall back in the '80s the Stones were panned for every album, it seemed the literati hoped they would go away and had no business still putting out LPs. Pulling out this cassette was like finding a $20 bill in an old jacket pocket.

There's some awful songs.
There's some terrible performances.
Even the pants Mick is wearing on the cover are horrendous.
So is there anything redeeming to Dirty Work, the album that broke the Stones up in the mid-80's?
In fact, there is. Dirty Work sometimes thrives on the fact that it's easily the angriest, most forceful disc in Stones catalog. Think of the kind of emotion that fueled Exile on Main Street's "Ventillator Blues" filling up an entire album (so long as you exclude the dreadful Hold Back, Winning Ugly, and Back To Zero). The tension and disgust that fuels the disc are summed up by the opening of the album's first track, "One Hit". The battle between the tension-filled acoustic guitar part and the bursting, screaming electric is essentially the relationship betwen Mick and Keith on the album. The song also contains Jagger's best vocals and lyrics. Is the song addressing a relationship between two lovers? A drug and its' addict?
It's followed by the messy, sloppy "Fight", which like "Had It With You" and the title track are good, and are GREAT to listen to when you're angry with the whole damn world - but only seem great in the light of the sub-par album that they're part of.
Aside from "One Hit" and the cover of "Harlem Shuffle", Jagger's vocals are his worst in the Stones catalog: as if he were trying to sabotage the album just so he could get back to being a solo artist. In fact, the best singing on the album is on Keith's two tracks: a cover of the reggae tune "Too Rude" (I think it's great, but be warned: no else I know seems to like it) and the only other Must-Have from this album (along with "One Hit"): "Sleep Tonight".

This disc captures the Stones in obvious conflict, however, it is an accurate relic of that time period in the group's history. Musically it beams more lead guitar with Jimmy Page among others guesting in the sessions. "One Hit (To The Body)" is a cranker and "Hold Back" sports an aggressive and infectious rhythm section. The title track rocks out and "Sleep Tonight" evokes a tender Richards ballad that just keeps growing on me. The Stones sound angry and that, I am convinced, was a motivator; "Fight" being a case in point. "Harlem Shuffle" is a typical Stones swaggering and danceable single. "Too Rude" finds Richards in familiar reggae-influenced territory. For what it is worth, Ron Wood shares 4 of the songwriting credits!
Overall, I find that this disc stands out among other Stones material because it evokes memories of a difficult period of the band. Somehow, with it all, it renders complete from beginning to end. Wouldn't it be a treat to have the band cover some of this material live?!

Dirty Work was originally released March 25, 1986, it was the first studio album in *17 years* that did not go to #1 in either the UK or the US. This one broke an unparalleled string of 10 #1 albums in a row, dating from the release of Let It Bleed in 1969. Dirty Work only made it to #3 in the UK and #4 in the US, making it the lowest charting for a studio album since the US release of The Rolling Stones, Now! only went to #5 in 1965.
The album includes the single hits Harlem Shuffle and One Hit (To The Body). 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:
Interesting notes include:
.....the working title for the album was 19 Stitches
.....the final cut (Sleep Tonight) is followed by a boogie-woogie piano fadeout memorial to Ian Steward, the real 6th Rolling Stone, who died Dec 12, 1985, just before the album was released and dedicated to him
.....Mick brought essentially nothing to the sessions because he had used all his latest ideas for his first solo album She's The Boss (Keith had threatened to "slit his......throat" if he toured with another band), so Keith took over the sessions and ran the band when Mick left to promote his album. When Mick returned, he used a different studio and worked at times when he would not be in the building with Keith.....If you watch the videos for One Hit and Fight you can actually see the (real) anger between them....they made up when the Stones played a memorial gig for Ian Steward Feb 28, 1986 at the 100 Club in Oxford St, London....They were billed as Rocket 86....(If you don't know rock history, that's the 1st rock and roll record, Ike Turner's Rocket 88, minus Brian and Ian).
