From the Rolling Stones website.
Recorded at Muscle Shoals in Alabama, with the Rolling Stones mobile and at Olympic Studios in London, Sticky Fingers is an acknowledged masterpiece and rightly features on the list of Rolling Stone Magazine's Greatest Albums Of All Time. It came housed in a controversial 'zipper' sleeve conceived by Andy Warhol - and topped the album charts on both sides of the Atlantic. The US number one single Brown Sugar has become the ultimate rock anthem but the riffy "Bitch" is just as intoxicating while the ballads "Sister Morphine" and "Moonlight Mile" are timeless classics. Sticky Fingers also provided rock fans with "Can't You Hear Me Knocking" and "Sway." The much-covered "Wild Horses" and "Dead Flowers" inaugurated a rich run of country-tinged material for the band. Keith Richards & Mick Jagger's songwriting partnership had reached another level as this album was unveiled in 1971.

"Sticky Fingers was never meant to be the title. It's just what we called it while we were working on it. Usually though, the working titles stick."

Keith Richards, 1971

Sticky Fingers
From the Rolling Stones website
Sticky Fingers in depth

Sticky Fingers is the Stones' first record on their own label, the third with Jimmy Miller producing, and was written and recorded during a period of peak creativity and performance.

It's a strong contender for the title of 'Best Rolling Stones Album Ever'. Recorded when, musically speaking, the band was at it's apex, Sticky Fingers is a bona fide rock and roll classic, containing and summing up everything good about guitar music at the start of the 1970s.

Like it's successor, Exile On Main Street, and its predecessor, Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers contains a little bit of everything for the varied musical taste. It features great rock and roll; expert song writing; marvelous production; blues, Latin, country; as well as a technical level of musicianship that many think they never reached again.

“To my mind the things that Ry (Cooder) plays on have a kind of polish that the Stones generally began to develop around that time. The rough edges came off a bit. Mick Taylor started putting on the polish that became the next period of the Stones out of the raw rock and blues band.”


* 1 of 10
* next

To start with - first, but not most, as it were - you do have to give the man at the desk some credit for having fostered the vibes and mastered the production that makes this sound so good. Jimmy Miller, take a bow. The new head of the new Rolling Stones record label who helped provide a solid commercial platform and context for the recording gets props too: Marshall Chess, take a bow.

But of course, it's the musicians who make the music. Who did what?

To begin: Brown Sugar. Has a better rock tune about slavery/sex/racial preference/heroin ever been written? Yeah? Show me. Mick Jagger, take a bow.

(Disclaimer: nobody here is claiming the song is about any of those things. We do recommend a close reading of the lyrics, though.)

Next up, Sway, a heart-breakingly beautiful song, featuring one of the greatest guitar solos ever heard on a Rolling Stone record. Mick Taylor, take a bow.

Wild Horses follows: along with Goats Head Soup's Angie, perhaps the Stones' best known ballad. It's such a beautiful song, featuring awesome lead guitar work and harmony vocals from Keith Richards, who wrote it (as you do) 'because I was doing good at home with my old lady': take a bow, savvy?

While Keith and the two Micks are the headline stars of Sticky Fingers - Sister Morphine and Moonlight Mile being two further examples - there are fantastic contributions from everyone else involved, too, not least session men Ry Cooder and Bobby Keys.

Along with Beggars Banquet, Let It Bleed and Exile On Main St., Sticky Fingers is a cornerstone album - perhaps the cornerstone - in the Rolling Stones' history.

Exile On Main Street - Deluxe Edition
Product Description
Regarded as one of the greatest albums in rock 'n' roll history and one of the most defining of the Stones' catalogue. Upon its release more than three decades ago, 'Exile on Main Street' innovatively wove varying musical genres, instruments and even artists into a compelling rhythmic masterpiece. The original 18-track double-album was recorded in various stages at multiple locations, including Olympic Studios in London, Keith Richard's mansion Nellcote in France, and in Los Angeles where the literal "Main Street" influenced the album title. These atypical circumstances surrounding the recording process greatly affected the album's outcome which was highly reflective and influenced by the sociopolitical turbulence that marked the late `60s and early `70s. The Stones nixed the influences of a flower-child era and directed their creative process with the edgier, excessive, "more is more" approach of the `70s. Exile reveals a sprawling mix of genres with undertones of blues, country, R&B and gospel mixed with lyrics that fervently demand for release and liberation. The 2-CD version is a 3-panel digi-pak, 2xCDs with a 12 page booklet. The Digipak is printed in reverse board double white to keep an 'uncoated' feel like the original LP release. The 2nd disc features 10 tracks originally recorded during the Exile era including 'Plundered My Soul', 'Dancing in the Light', 'Following the River' and 'Pass The Wine' plus alternate versions of 'Soul Survivor' and 'Loving Cup'. 

From the Rolling Stones website
Exile On Main St. in depth

There's always a lot of talk about the murky mix and the low production values of Exile On Main St. But the quintessential thing about the record is its tight focus on the basic components of The Stones' down-and-dirty blues-based rock 'n' roll songs and style. 

How they got turned into a record is one thing. But how the band wrote them and played them is another, and as a collection of rock-country-blues songs, Exile is a masterpiece. There are few moments that can be faulted on this album: it's a massively powerful, almost devastating experience. It is also one of the most discussed. 

Exile On Main Street takes up where Sticky Fingers left off, with the Stones wiping out one set of solutions - heading into exile to escape the cops and the robbers of Her Majesty's Inland Revenue - only to be confronted with another pile of problems, largely (according to popular myth) in the form of sex and drugs.

Naturally, the only way to confront these powerful demons is with the third part of the Holy Trinity: rock 'n' roll. With few exceptions, The Rolling Stones proceed to do the things that come naturally, not stepping out of the realm in which they feel most comfortable.

“You'd sort of jam an acoustic guitar into the corner of one of these cubicles and just start playing and you'd hear it back you'd think, that doesn't sound anything like what I was playing, but it sounds great. So you started to play around with the basement itself, aiming your amplifier up at the ceiling instead of like normal.”

Keith Richards, 2001

1 of 6 next The record comes on like an out-and-out rocker. Rocks Off isn't a subtle title and the song's not delicate either, although there's a wistful undertone to the lyrics that hear inaudible voices on the street and long for release that only comes in sleep.

Rip This Joint doesn't need a lot of explanation either: the fastest song the Stones have ever recorded, it's an absolute stomper, with Mick Jagger sounding at his most deranged, howling and whooping like Jumpin' Jack Flash himself, semi-incomprehensible nonsense about 'Birmin'ham and Alabam' not givin' a dam' bubbling in frenzied delight from those famous lips.

The dance mood continues, albeit at a slightly less crazy pace, with Shake Your Hips, before slowing into a more laconic shuffle on Casino Boogie. 

Three tremendous slow numbers follow: Tumbling Dice, Sweet Virginia and then the heart-breaking tribute to the guitar player, Torn and Frayed.

These songs are so famous that writing anything new about them is practically impossible. It is worth saying, though - even though this, too, has surely been observed many times before - that the programming of these opening seven songs is absolutely inspired; hitting the listener up with three super-quick blasts of dancey-blues-rock, before bringing them down through a reflective, sorrowful mood into tearjerking country balladry.

The emotional control at work here is concealed by the messy sound values and the overall down-and-dirty mood of the music; but it's deliberate, and it's genius.

We then move through a three song sequence about lerrrve, ladies and gentlemen, in all its hope and glory: the love of freedom on Sweet Black Angel; the pleading desire of Loving Cup; and - Keith's special moment not only on the whole album but in the whole ouevre and history of The Rolling Stones - Happy.

On we move from there, leaving behind the light of love and turning instead to the lingering darkness in the haunted cellar beneath the sun-spaced rooms of the great villa Nellcote.

First up, the mischievous-sounding, but pain-ridden Turd on the Run: "Well I lost a lot of love over you."

Then the tortured low point of the whole album, Ventilator Blues: "...your spine is cracking and your hands, they shake... When you're trapped and circled with no second chances, Your code of living is your gun in hand. "

And finally the potential redemption of I Just Want To See His Face: surely the most (deliberately) indistinct vocal (lead and chorus) ever recorded by the band. "Sometimes you ain't got nobody and you want somebody to love. Then you don't want to walk and talk about Jesus, You just want to see his face."

And then we're out and up and running again, into a great wall of rhythmic blues rock that builds and builds towards the end of the album, moving at varying tempo through obvious rockers like Let It Loose and All Down The Line; the deep blues of Stop Breaking Down; the rock and roll prayer that is Shine A Light (whose title Scorsese took as his title when he turned his all seeing eyes upon the Stones); and, finally, the acknowledgement that something has been endured here: Soul Survivor.

Remastered & Original
Deluxe Super Deluxe
Product Description
Upon its release more than three decades ago, Exile on Main Street innovatively wove varying musical genres, instruments and even artists into a compelling rhythmic masterpiece. This new compilation features 10 tracks originally recorded during the Exile era and only recently discovered while working on the reissue project. The unearthed tracks which include such titles as "Plundered My Soul," "Dancing in the Light," "Following the River" and "Pass The Wine" have undergone a unique evolution, while staying true to the essence of the 1972 album. Alternate versions of "Soul Survivor" and "Loving Cup" also are a part of the Exile bonus materials. 

As a complement to the release of Exile on Main Street, a documentary, "Stones in Exile," has just been completed for fans to view on US Network television and through BBC Worldwide internationally. The documentary features rare, never-before-seen archival film, photos and interviews as well as new conversations with the band and the artists they influence. Produced by Oscar -winning filmmaker John Battsek and directed by Stephen Kijak, who is known for award-winning work on Cinemania, and Scott Walker: 30 Century Man, "Stones in Exile" offers an uncommon glimpse into the lives of the band as they created one of the greatest albums of all time. 

The original 18-track double-album was recorded in various stages at multiple locations, including Olympic Studios in London, Keith Richard's mansion Nellcote in France, and in Los Angeles where the literal "Main Street" influenced the album title. These atypical circumstances surrounding the recording process greatly affected the album's outcome which was highly reflective and influenced by the sociopolitical turbulence that marked the late `60s and early `70s. The Stones nixed the influences of a flower-child era and directed their creative process with the edgier, excessive, "more is more" approach of the `70s. Exile reveals a sprawling mix of genres with undertones of blues, country, R&B and gospel mixed with lyrics that fervently demand for release and liberation. 

The album pulled together an electric array of talent including Dr. John, the late Billy Preston and pianist Nicky Hopkins. Guitarist Mick Taylor, who replaced Brian Jones in the band shortly before Jones died in 1969, is a magnificent blues player who brought an intensity and elegance to these epic tracks. At times, these musicians and others lived on the recording studio premises with the band creating an extremely open and creative collaboration for the album. 

"The album's riveting portrait of artists pushed - by the times, by themselves - to the very limits of their creativity has provided inspiration to every musical generation that has come along since Exile was released in 1972," said author Anthony DeCurtis. "Every song on Exile on Main Street is elevated by its relationship to the music that comes before and after it. The album's irresistible power is unlikely to diminish any time soon." 

Exile on Main Street will be available in two CD formats: the original 18 track release; a deluxe CD edition with the 10 special bonus tracks; and a super deluxe package that also includes vinyl, a 30-minute documentary DVD with footage from Cocksucker Blues, Ladies and Gentlemen... the Rolling Stones and Stones in Exile, and a 50-page collector's book with photos from the Exile era. The 10 unreleased tracks were produced by Jimmy Miller, The Glimmer Twins and Don Was.

Goats Head Soup in depth

Following Exile was never going to be easy, just as following Sticky Fingers wasn't going to be easy, just as following Let It Bleed...

Great sequences of inspiration and achievement must come to an end, and that's what Goats Head Soup is all about. Coming Down Again, possibly the stand-out track on Goats Head Soup, describes the mood and the moment perfectly.

Keith Richards has rarely, if ever, given a better vocal performance, Nicky Hopkins' piano meets him halfway, while the guitars (Keith), Charlie's halting drums and Mick Taylor's bass lines provide an evocative, wistful cocoon of sound that supports and secures the prominent voice and keyboard lines perfectly.

A beautifully-weighted cameo sax solo from Bobby Keys half way through the song anticipates the emerging 'Philly' soul sound that would dominate popular music by the mid-seventies, before an extended riff on the main theme takes the song into fade-out.

The song, lyrically, is about jealousy and love (emotional and also physical, to an extent that, based on some of the words, the tune could easily have been named 'Going down again'); but the message is clear. The Rolling Stones have been up there, on one, as it were, peaking; but now they are on their way back to earth to join lesser mortals.

“...for all its differences, Soup sustains some significant continuities with its immediate predecessors. ”

Rolling Stone Magazine, 1973

* 1 of 7
* next

Coming Down Again crystallises the mood - and 100 Years Ago, another achingly wistful ballad, catches and reflects a lot of it too; but Goats Head Soup is not an exclusively melancholy album.

Before both of these tunes, the Goats Head Soup opens with Dancing With Mr D, a gutsy, mid-paced funk-rocker in which Mick Jagger opens up vocally, describing how he trips the light fantastic with Death, the Mr D of the title.

And check out Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo (Heartbreaker) which follows 100 Years Ago - an angry urban stomp of a tune about death in the city, brassy and bold as hell, an instant rock standard.

The most famous track on the album is undoubtedly Angie - another 'what was and might have been'-flavoured ballad which, when released as the lead single, went to number one in the US and has persisted as one of the Stones' more popular tunes.

So by the end of the first half of the record, there's a clear dichotomy between brash, balls-out rock 'n' roll; and sorrowful regret for things that have and haven't happened. It's a fair description of a mixed-up and possibly compromised band "sliding out of perhaps the greatest winning streak in rock history" (Stephen Erlewine).

The second half is a little less ambiguous, and possibly clearer-headed about what the band are doing in Jamaica: making a rock and roll record. It kicks off with Silver Train, an under-estimated shouter of a track, highlighted by Mick's borderline manic vocal performance (especially in the refrain 'I didn't even know her name'), Stu's hammering piano and some awesome slide guitar work.

Hide Your Love, Winter and Can You Hear The Music all recreate for some more of the 'downer' flavour of the first half of the album (although only the starkly beautiful Winter, a Mick Taylor highlight really goes for the heartstrings in the same way that Coming Down Again and 100 Years Ago do); but each also has an elusive touch of the genuine Stones vigour about them. By this point, however strong the sense of 'something gone forever' is and has been, the counterpoint of 'But we are still The Rolling Stones' is beginning to surface again.

As if to underline the point, Goats Head Soup ends with Star Star, universally but informally (i.e. not on the radio, where, strangely, it's not often played) known by its shouted refrain: "Starfucker starfucker starfucker star".

Goats Head Soup might begin with a sense of mourning for the end of a winning streak, but it ends with the same sense of irreverence, honesty and belief in the power of drums, guitars, pianos and voices doing rock and roll together to get you through anything.

It's Only Rock 'N' Roll in depth

The Rolling Stones are in no danger of being charged under the Trade Descriptions Act for It's Only Rock 'N' Roll. Whether they're attacking Motown R'n'B soul standard Ain't Too Proud To Beg - a ritual slaughter on the altar of Rock 'n' Roll - or dropping into wistful balladry as on Till The Next Goodbye, there's a more consistent rock sensibility at work on this album that leads each song consistently to the same place.

It's not a new sound, but this is the first album on which every track, in one way or another, has it; and as such, It's Only Rock 'N' Roll marks an end and a beginning.

There is still room for depth on the record. Bill Janovitz has pointed out the layered complexity of the lyrics on Till The Next Goodbye, while the most atypical number here, Time Waits For No One, although it takes flight on the back of a soaring, extended Mick Taylor solo, still ends up being pumped up and whipped through towards its conclusion by some typically driving R 'n' B drums and piano.

(The song is probably the album standout, and the solo is a masterpiece - ironically enough, since this was also the track - which didn't credit him as a composer - that convinced Mick Taylor that he didn't have time to wait for the band to recognise his contribution, prompting his recognition.)

The fact is, two out of three opening tracks entitled If You Can't Rock Me and It's Only Rock 'N' Roll (But I Like It) on an album called It's Only Rock 'N' Roll kind of set an agenda and expectations. After the abstractions of a record called Goats Head Soup (opening tracks Dancing With Mr D, 100 Years Ago and Coming Down Again), this is straightforward stuff: shitkicking, good time R’n’B/boogie-woogie dance music, with some spoonfuls of blues, country and gospel stirred in; the whole mixture coming in more audible than ever before due to better studio technology, particularly the guitar sound, showing how closely related to and influential upon the hard rock genre The Rolling Stones were, and still are at this point.

“Even a casual toss-off by the Rolling Stones during their peak years beats most bands' A-list material...”

Bill Janowitz, AllMusic, 2010

* 1 of 6
* next

There’s a pinch of reggae in this mix too. It's hard to keep an entirely straight face during Luxury; the combination of a reggae hook superimposed over the standard rock beat that dominates the album; the lyrics 'I'm working so hard, workin for de company'; the faux-Jamaican accent in which they are sung; not being conducive to po-faced rock criticism. It's a cracking song, mind, with wicked piano once again by the irrperessible genius called Nicky Hopkins - a great party record.

Short and Curlies also prompts a smile of agreeable, toe-tapping enjoyment. It's a thumping song, full of thumping beats and groovy licks, and completely devoid of menace. "You can't get away from it all - she's got you by the balls," cries Mick, "It's too bad, so sad!" - sounding anything but upset about it.

What these tracks have in common with Time Waits For No One, Till The Next Time We Say Goodbye, and everything else on It's Only Rock 'N' Roll, is that by the end of the song, no matter how they approach it, they all end up rocking out, with guitars and drums kicking the rhythm and the melody into the genre The Rolling Stones here successfully claim as their own.

The closest thing to exceptions are If You Really Want To Be My Friend: a sincere gospel-blues with some beautiful organ on which Nicky Hopkins sounds more like Billy Preston than Billy Preston; and Fingerprint File, an extended paranoid funk rock jam, where Billy Preston sounds pretty much like himself; but even on this latter number there's a sense of suppressed comedy in the hammed-up fade-out vocals: "Good night, sleep tight."

But the key songs that set the tone and standardise around a Rolling Stones that persists today are If You Can't Rock Me, the title track, and Dance Little Sister.

This record, timeless and still amazingly listenable, contemporary even, is an admission not of defeat, but of acceptance: that, after some extremely strange and very high adventures, The Rolling Stones have come home, found their feet after time in space, and are going to stick with what they know, love and do better than anyone else.

It's only rock and roll, but they like it, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that.

Press Release:
Release Date Nov. 2011
 Rolling Stones fans will be able to watch a previously unseen Rolling Stones concert movie, The Rolling Stones: Some Girls, Live in Texas '78, in digital cinemas worldwide. Originally shot on 16mm film at Fort Worth, Texas in 1978, the footage has been restored in high definition, with the sound remixed and remastered by Bob Clearmountain from the original multi-track tapes. The result is an explosive visual reminder of why The Rolling Stones are the best live band on the planet.

The movie features many Stones classics including Honky Tonk Woman, Tumbling Dice, Brown Sugar, Jumpin’ Jack Flash, Miss You and Beast of Burden, plus an interview with Sir Mick Jagger shot in August 2011 where he introduces the concert and offers an insight into its significance in the band’s history. 

Mick Jagger says: “Fort Worth was an amazing night in a blistering hot July. Watching it now, the band were 
really intense and focused, but we were also having a blast with the fans who were really getting into the show and the new tracks from “Some Girls”. I think our fans will love the chance to see this concert movie for the first time on the big screen.”

The Rolling Stones 1978 tour of the USA in support of that year’s “Some Girls” album is considered by fans to be one of their very best. The tour followed immediately on the release of the album and by the time the band arrived in Texas in mid-July it had hit the No.1 spot on the US charts. The tour took a “back to basics” approach, with the band and their music very much at the forefront, and little or no elaborate staging.
