Let me say straight out that I am a lifelong Stones fan and I have had this album since it was released in October 74. To be honest for me, it has never been in the class of their purple patch (Beggars Banquet through to Exile on Main St) but of all the recent remastered albums I think this one has come up with the biggest shine.
It has its high spots; the title track, the Philly inspired "If you really want to be my friend," Fingerprint FIle with its echoes of post Watergate paranoia, and the fabulous Time waits for no one with My Taylor playing some beautiful guitar are all excellent. If you can't rock me, Ain't too proud to beg and Dance Little Sister are all more than credible as album tracks and considerably sharper thanks to the remastering process. All that said, Till the next goodbye is toe curdling bad and Luxury despite a great review from the writer Roy Carr, is an attempt at reggae cross over which doesn't quite get there - in fact Jagger's attempt to sound vaguely Jamaican doesn't help proceedings. As for "Short and Curlies" well along with the album cover I think it might have been better left for another day.
In summary, some high points, a sparky intro / opening to the album, Mick Taylor's playing on Time waits for no one and the overall quality of the remastering make this worthy of further investigation. At time of writing this can be purchased for less than £7 from Uncle Amazon which in my book is good value for money.
If you have all of their albums from the aforementioned purple patch then this is worth buying - more to this album than one might initially think on first listen and on balance it would compare quite favourably with most of their output post "Tattoo You."
I hope the above helps
