Product Description


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

4.0 out of 5 stars An often overlooked gem in the Stones catalogue April 19 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album, as stated, is often overlooked in the grand scheme of the Stones discography. It may take some people a few listens to warm up to this offereing, but if given a chance this album shouldn't dissapoint. The key tracks here are the "hits" or singles that were realeased at the time. "One Hit (To The Body)" & "Harlem Shuffle" are excellent tunes that are as strong as some of the material from the 70's. The rest of the album has a couple of hidden songs that warrant further listening. "Fight" is a catchy tune starts off at full speed and doesn't stop. "Winning Ugly" has some of Bill Wyman's best bass lines. The bass lines are actually pretty prominent in this tune, which is not a bad thing.
The only weak link in this set is "Too Rude". It's a pseudo raggae number that is nowhere close to similar raggae numbers in the 70's. As a matter of fact the song is pretty awful and should have been dumped out altogether.
Overall a really good effort that I have grown to enjoy more over the years.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than 3 stars July 16 2008
By Pol Sixe TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars stray from the pack Feb. 2 2004

While everyone else ridicules the Stones "Dirty Work" I must say it is worth owning if only for "One Shot" & "Harlem Shuffle".

4.0 out of 5 stars Listen again, a few times Aug. 12 2009
Format:Audio CD
I'm enjoying the later Stones albums more now, with fresh ears and a few plays. This one is building up to 4 stars as I listen more.

It won't match the 70's Stones albums from my youth, but it's a nice alternative.

For today, my favourite song is "Harlem Shuffle"; "Too Rude" is a good example of the Stones trying something different; least favourite is probably "Had it With You".

"Sleep Tonight" is another 'sweet' Richards/Jagger ballad.

For the new 2009 reissues, I haven't noticed much difference from the last reissues. The packaging is the same, and the sound is very similar to me. But I've been purchasing the new remasters anyways...

4.0 out of 5 stars hard times, but important album July 13 2004
Format:Audio CD
now in most music circles people are quick to dismiss Dirty Work as a big mix of trash that the stones put together. I would say after reading about the recording sessions (which even featured Jimmy Page)realizing the tension between Jagger and Richards, and added the new age music that was taking shape, I've found there to be alot of energy in the album, it's good and bad for the music, the good being the pure soul in Jaggers' voice and emotion in Richards voice. The bad being the poor marketing, and poor overall reviews from the music critics that wanted the Stones to die off. I would recommend this album to collectors and fans, average stones listeners will not find any top hits here...it's just a growing pain (what got them where they are today) This Album was pivotal!!!

Dirty Work is not the best Rolling Stones record of the 1980s. The Stones began the 1980s with Emotional Rescue (1980), Tatto You (1981), Still Life (1982), and Undercover (1983).
Dirty Work is not as good as any of them: it's not as dirty as Undercover, it's not as inspired as Tattoo You, it's not as original as Emotional Rescue. But Dirty Work is certainly one of the most underrated Stones record.
One Hit is a great rock. Harlem Shuffle is a nice cover. Dirty Work is a very energetic piece. And then you have some of the best Keith.
Dirty Work is the first album in which Keith sings two songs. Too Rude is a beatiful slow reggae which became a staple in his tour with the Expensive Winos. And then there is Sleep Tonight, which is a great slow song, in the best Rolling Stone tradition. It is probably Keith's best singing performance.

3.0 out of 5 stars So-so Nov. 29 2003
Format:Audio CD
"Dirty Work" isn't a terrible album, it just isn't particularly memorable either.
Apart from a few songs like "One Hit (To The Body)", "Harlem Shuffle", and the catchy reggae cover "Too Rude", "Dirty Work" just never gets off the ground. There are some good moments, but overall it remains rather forgettable, and it is one of those records where I can never seem to remember more than half of the songs. It sits on the shelf with "Exile" and "Steel Wheels" and all the others, but it is not one that I return to a lot.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Stones do their dirty work Nov. 2 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album released sometime in the first quarter of 1986,brings the R&B classic HARLEM SHUFFLE(not a Jagger-Richards compostion). The comicstrips contained in this album are really humorous. A very colorful album especially the back cover. This is the first Rolling Stones album since Mick Jagger's solo debut in 1985. Also since the passing of one-time member Ian Stewart the same year. We hear Keith Richards taking the lead on SLEEP TONIGHT. The CD has 11 tracks,the last one being untitled and instrumental. Track 10,entitled SLEEP TONIGHT, and track 11 are combined on the LP and cassette. Track 11 plays for only approximately thirty seconds.
