Digitally remastered edition of the Rock 'N' Roll veterans' 1971 album, originally the first album for their own Rolling Stones Records imprint. Though the album was pieced together from various sessions, it remains one of their most iconic albums. 10 tracks including 'Brown Sugar', 'Bitch' and 'Wild Horses'.
"Sister Morphine", the heart of guitarist Mick Taylor's first full studio album with the Stones, doesn't get brought up as often as "Brown Sugar" or "Wild Horses". But it's one of the most vivid, horrifying songs about drug abuse ever recorded--as Mick Jagger sings "from my hospital bed," the ringing guitars of Taylor and Keith Richards build to full catharsis behind him. On that and lighter songs like the countryish "Dead Flowers" and the rocker "Bitch", Charlie Watts establishes himself as rock's prototypical drummer. He's creative and propulsive and knows how to swing, but he never overwhelms the song or the other Stones. --Steve Knopper --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

You know? Maybe the REALLY great stuff is like THAT. If I could only save one record (please God let that cup pass my lips) from my blazing bedroom, "Exile" might still be it. But I'd tell the firefighters not to come out without this one. Its first three songs may be the best 1-2-3 punch on any rock record. "Brown Sugar" is the most overplayed number I still insist on playing; it's still air-guitar/air-sax heaven, with bathroom-mirror singing parts. I'm happy, though, to see all the plugs on this site for "Sway," my favorite Stones song.Read more ›
"Brown Sugar" starts it out with a tasty sax solo by Bobby Keyes. "Wild Horses" is one of the greatest bittersweet ballads. "Knockin'" is awesome with some guitar duelling between Keith and Mick Taylor. "Sway" is underrated and "You Gotta Move" continues the blues/country/folk style the Stones were known for. I'd like to dedicate "Sister Morphine" to a former fair weather friend, who wanted to be a Sister, was just as addictive, and left me strung out after her demise. I'll dedicate "Dead Flowers" in her honour now, since I'm over her! Ry Cooder played on "Morphine", which was written while Brian Jones was still alive. On a Spanish version of SF, "Morphine" is replaced by a very rare live track called "Let It Rock". "Moonlight Mile" features ironically beautiful Eastern-inspired melodies which belie lyrics of despair and addiction.
And I can say that I'm really impressed. Sticky fingers is a raw production (apart from two songs with Paul Buckmaster strings arrangements).
It sounds precise and natural and I would say, with a good equipment, you'll have the impression that the band is playing in your room.
Buy the vinyl with confidence. You won't regret it.
The Stones were also free from the sixties and all that "revolution" nonsense. The Stones could be their own kind of "cool" and millions ate it up.
Production values also changed. As a close listen to this record will show, stereophonic sound now had a presence in which the listener seemed to find himself in the midst of the instruments and musicians. This was exciting at the time and gave the listener a new sense of realism in the playing. Later in the seventies, this approach was driven so far that many records felt claustrophobic. The sound was so up close and precise that it became unreal. In the Stones' hands, however, the sound was tight but the feeling was loose and free.
The album opens with "Brown Sugar" and "Sway". Wonderful lyrics, good solos, rocking rhythm. Definitely forbidden subject matter. But this was all a part of the new era of freedom and frankness of the time. It was all about being "past all those hang ups".
"Wild Horses" is a touching, tender ballad that somehow manages to drip with masculinity. "Can't You Here Me Knocking" is perhaps the greatest lost Stones song. Perhaps it is all the drug references or because the instrumental section reminds many of Santana, but it is smart and tough and all cool. It is unjustly ignored.
"You Gotta Move" is a slide guitar blues song that seems inconsequential but you find yourself playing it in your head weeks later.Read more ›

Obviously a classic album, but my vinyl edition sounds weird at the end of "Moonlight Mile." The sound warbles, as if it slows a little, then gets back to normal... Read morePublished 4 days ago by Owen T.
Very good pressing. Almost dead quiet with very good dynamics. Presentation could have been better, with nothing more than the original insert cardboard. Still, recommended.Published 21 days ago by ssigouin
