His DNA has been altered in a good way, with many illicit substances which well preserved his body and mind. Sad - the vinyl came, says "Made in France" and nice, heavy vinyl, too. Side 1 had a bit of static and was a bit noisy - my fault. Bled the static off and side 2 was much more quiet, but the mix or the pressing, or whatever it is Sound quality is dismal, at least to my ear - this is going back, for sure, as defective.
From the time Sticky Fingers was first released in , it's been one of the Stones best efforts. It has handled the passing of time well, and still rocks.
It's the 2nd "Bonus" disc I find captivating on this release. I especially like the addition of slide guitar to "Brown Sugar". It adds a whole new dimension and texture to the tune. To me, it's the live material from The Roadhouse in London that make the album. I am of the opinion that the band with Mick Taylor was the Stones at their best. This becomes more evident on live tracks. And, it all wails, especially "Midnight Rambler".
It's even better than the version on "Ya Yas". Overall, this is a worthy re-release. The new material makes an outstanding album even better. Sticky and sweet reissue. First album to have been released on the band's custom label, back in , and one of their most important during their long-running and much celebrated career, "Sticky fingers" sees the Rolling Stones in their creative prime, presenting them at their most low-key and introspective.
Arguably one of their best and most tight sets, it is ironic that many of these tracks were recorded in different places, and at different times. From the bawdy "Brown sugar", and the mournful "Wild horses", down to the album's deeper cuts, this is quite rightly one of the most iconic rock albums ever released. This brand new reissue puts together more pieces of this classic album. Listening to the stripped-down version of "Wild horses" with that beautiful lyric video on youtube a couple of months ago, got me enthused about this new edition.
Obviously, it is the early versions and outtakes of these familiar songs on this set's second disc that make it essential, but hardcore fans and collectors will be thrilled to get the super deluxe box set, featuring an array of audiovisual bonus material spread across 5 discs, as well as other goodies, including a mini-book dedicated to the making of the album, with an essay and unpublished photos.
Beautifully remastered, and gloriously presented complete with a zipper , all a fan has to do is unzip and enjoy! There seems to be an issue with vinyl copies arriving with big, greasy fingerprints all over them "sticky fingers" takes a whole new dimension!
Sticky, dirty, raunchy and raw, this brand new reissue of "Sticky fingers" is totally worth savouring. Sticky and sweet reissue By Scarlet Jupiter on June 9, Images in this review. See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries.
This review is for the version which includes the original album, the extras and Roundhouse live cuts, and the "Live At Leeds University" gig. Brown Sugar 2. Sway 3. Wild Horses 4. Can't You Hear Me Knocking 5. You Gotta Move 6. Bitch 7. I Got The Blues 8. Sister Morphine 9. Dead Flowers Moonlight Mile Needs no real introduction.
From the risque rock of "Brown Sugar", with its iconic riff, and the punchy horns of "Bitch", through the blues rock of "Sway", the pure blues of "You Gotta Move" and "I Got The Blues" to the sheer, unparalleled beauty of "Wild Horses", the morbid "Sister Morphine", the prelude to some of "Exile" that is "Moonlight Mile" and the enjoyable country rock of "Dead Flowers" - it is an absolute delight.
The "two tracks in one" of "Can't You Hear Me Knocking" with its vocal introduction and extended instrumental outro, featuring some Santana-style guitar, is always a high point. Remastered impressively, giving truly excellent sound quality, you can't go wrong with this slice of leery early seventies Stones. Everyone is on top form, instrumentally and vocally. A very, very strong case for being their best ever album. Of course, the monumental "Exile On Main St" had not appeared as yet.
Wild Horses 3. Can't You Hear Me Knocking 4. Bitch 5. Dead Flowers "Brown Sugar" with Eric Clapton on it is very enjoyable, Clapton's whining guitar adding something extra. While not out-doing the original it is certainly interesting. The acoustic take of "Wild Horses" has a stripped down beauty. Lovely acoustic guitar on it, particularly at the three minute mark.
Throughout Sticky Fingers, narcotics are a major theme, with well over half the songs explicitly mentioning drug use, but emotions of loss, frustration and incredible world-weariness are also explored. Opening cuts on Stones albums have always been special, and the Stones repeated this with Brown Sugar.
It had a simultaneous release as a single and topped the American charts for two weeks, although surprisingly it only made 2 in the UK. Most people would probably say that Brown Sugar has more ably stood the test of time. So we had to go everywhere in the world to find the zippers, but we eventually did: Cort zippers, a nickel less than Talon. He gave me about eight Polaroids, because I had him shoot the rear end too. And they were all black and white.
And really shitty black and white. So I had things to work with, but it was not art that could be reproduced. So there was a new technique at that time called posterization. Do you remember the movie Serpico, with Al Pacino? That [movie poster] was an example of posterization, which creates a high contrast between the dark and light tones.
I wanted to have a feeling of denim, black denim. So we took those tones that were now black and white and made a stippled effect, like a basketball effect.
When I decided that the zipper could damage the vinyl, I decided to fold in a third panel [behind the zipper]. And I want to do it in color, so if somebody opens a zipper, they see the pants and the flesh. He was a makeup guy. A sweet, very handsome gay guy, one of the guys that hung out at the Factory. And Andy told me he shot two or three guys. And I did too. Everything was very tight. So this guy was probably a little bit aroused or something, or maybe he was that big. They thought it was Mick.
