Product Description

Product Description

Digitally remastered reissue of The Rolling Stones 1995 acoustic live album.


Après la sortie de Voodoo Lounge, lorsque vient le moment de choisir le répertoire pour un album live, plutôt que d'enregistrer les éternels mêmes succès dans des stades, les Stones sélectionnent des morceaux moins connus qu'ils captent en répétition ou dans de petites salles en formation plutôt acoustique. Des raretés sont exhumées ("I'm Free", "The Spider And The Fly"), des reprises font leur apparition pour la première fois ("Little Baby" de Willie Dixon et le bien nommé "Like A Rolling Stone" de Bob Dylan) et certains classiques apparaissent enfin sur un live officiel ("Shine A Light", "Wild Horses" et même "Angie"). Notons que les vieux Cailloux gardent un lien privilégié avec la France puisque plusieurs chansons retenues proviennent du concert de l'Olympia du 3 juillet 1995. --Hubert Deshouse --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Your Granny's Stones Live Album March 7 2004
Format:Audio CD
If you're tired of Rolling Stones live albums with the same tracks on just about every one of them, then "Stripped" is your album. Almost completely devoid of hit singles ("Angie" is the real exception, though "Wild Horses" was a minor hit). Every song here has never or rarely been perfromed in concert.
"Stripped" is a sparse, acoustic live album. Kicking off with the driiving strums of "Street Fighting Man", every song here is better than the next. "Like A Rolling Stone" beats Dylan's original version by a long shot. They revive their first hit, Buddy Holly's "Not Fade Away", with a completely different take from the original version by Holly or their subsequent, Bo Didley - style cover. "Shine A Light" is a gospel rave - up from "Exile On Main Street", while "The Spider And The Fly" is a raunchy 1965 blues. "I'm Free" moves along nicely, while "Wild Horses" is great as always. "Let It Bleed" is fun and sincere, while "Dead Flowers" is fun and insincere. "Slippin' Away" features a powerful Kieth vocal, while "Angie" is just magical. In addition to these 11 tracks, 3 tracks from rehearsals have been added for your listening pleasure. "Love In Vain" has a great Woody slide riff, "Sweet Virginia" sways effortlessly, and Wille Dixon's "Little Baby" ends the album on a high note.
This album is truly magical. The Stones once more prove that they always will be The Greatest Rock And Roll Band In The World".

Format:Audio CD
In the early 1990s virtually everybody from Eric Clapton to Nirvana released an Unplugged record. The Rolling Stones didn't. In several of the songs recorded for Stripped (1995), Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood play electric guitars. So all those who had some appetite for an unplugged Rolling Stones record were probably left a little unhappy.
That said, Stripped is a really nice live record especially for their hard-core fans. Most of the live records that the Stones have released over time, from 'Get yer ya-ya's out! (1970) onward (with the possible exception of Still Life, 1982), were centered around classic Rolling Stones hits such as Honky Tonk Women, Satisfaction, Sympathy for the Devil, Jumpin' Jack Flash and, more recently, Start me up. Stripped represents a step in a different direction as most of the songs recorded live for this album are the sometimes unjustly neglected Stones B-Side. The Stones recorded one song from their 1969 album. Interestingly what they played was Let it bleed instead of Gimme Shelter or You can't always get what you want. There are three songs from Sticky Fingers (1971), but two of the them (Dead Flowers and Love in Vain) are not neraly as well known as Brown Sugar. Two of the songs that appear on Stripped were originally released in Exile on Main Street (1972). But even in this case, the Stones opted for Sweet Virginia and Shine a Light, instead of performing the superfamous Tumbling Dice or Happy.
But the overall quality of Stripped is great and record is nice treat not only for Stones fans. A final note is order, this is the second record with Darryl Jones on bass and it just shows how well he blended with the rest of the band not only in studio but also in live performances.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too clean, too overdubbed, too bad. Aug. 24 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Why must the Stones overproduce all of their recordings these days (and for the last decade and a half)? Why can't they make albums like Ya-Ya and Exile anymore? Part of the beauty of the old Stones was that their records were a little bit rough, standing in sharp contrast to the whistle-clean songs of the Beatles. Maybe they should just hire George Martin from here on out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tender, intimate, bluesy, sometimes dark. Dec 20 2001
Format:Audio CD
The Stones have actually put out a ridiculous number of live albums, some of which are quite good and remain in their catalogue justifiably. "Stripped" is by far the best, because in reality it is a bunch of alternative performances of some of their best songs that wouldn't sound good belted above the roar of a stadium sound system. Such as: Sweet Virginia, Love in Vain, Angie, Wild Horses, The Spider and the Fly.
The playing on this album is a preview of coming attractions--the Stones in the 2010s, when they will sit on barstools at little clubs and amaze their fans with intimate, tasty versions like these of their vast repertoire of music. Everyone sounds great, but especially check out Charlie Watts, the drummer's drummer, who plays with a jazzman's delicacy here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, tough live album Sept. 6 2003
Format:Audio CD
One of the best live offering from the Stones, "Stripped" is culled from club dates in Amsterdam and Paris, as well as rehearsals in Tokyo and Lisbon.
The sound is excellent, and you get a sense that the band is much "closer" than on your average live album.
The Rolling Stones do an excellent rendition of Bob Dylan's "Like A Rolling Stone" with some powerful drumming from Charlie Watts, and a great take on Buddy Holly's "Not Fade Away", but it's really impossible to talk about highlights here...the entire CD is filled with some of the best performances the Stones have ever released.
They also perform a wonderful live version of the soulful, gospel-like "Shine A Light", and other rarely-played songs like "The Spider And The Fly", "I'm Free" and Robert Johnson's "Love In Vain".
Also, this rendition of "Wild Horses" has to be the definitive take on that song, and the same can be said for the superb "Dead Flowers" (great solo by Ronnie Wood), and the lean, bluesy "Sweet Virginia".
Many arrangements are primarily or solely acoustic, and Mick Jagger plays the harp on several songs, adding to the intimate atmosphere, as well as helping to make "Stripped" such a superb, soulful live album, a real gem, and an excellent purchase even for casual Stones fans.
Highly recommended.
