Biography

The Rolling Stones were formed in London in April 1962 by Brian Jones (guitar, harmonica), Ian Stewart (piano), Mick Jagger (lead vocals, harmonica, guitar), and Keith Richards (guitar, vocals). Bassist Bill Wyman and drummer Charlie Watts completed the early line-up. R&B and blues cover songs dominated the Rolling Stones' early material, but their repertoire has always included rock ...

Product Description

Product Description

ROLLING STONES Sticky Fingers (1994 UK Dutch-pressed 10-track remastered CD issue of the 1971 album including Brown Sugar Wild Horses and Sister Morphine picture sleeve CDV2730)

Amazon.co.uk

"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

Format: Audio CD
OK, I would imagine that most folk already know this album and will already have it in some form or other. Therefore I will not dwell too long on the peerless music contained therein. The music is a mixed bag of styles taking in deep core blues numbers, hoary rockers and a spell of jazz-rock(almost!)in the latter minutes of Can't you hear me knocking which is worth the cost of admission alone.

Why should anyone buy these new remasters, especially when the last lot claimed that the patented UV22 Super CD Encoding system by Apogee Electronics captured the fine detail of the original analogue master(still awake out there??). I got this just to hear for myself if there was any noticeable difference in this and the last lot. I do not have a wave editor, so this is all based on listening to it in the car, on the way home with it, and on the stereo at home.

There are differences that I could hear in the car, even though it is a noisy and less than perfect place to start('98 Mini Cooper with a window open to stop it from steaming up in the rain). Straight off I could hear Bobby Keys sax playing in Brown Sugar, the background bits and not just the hard blowing. The violins in Sway were more apparent. The detail in the sound of the slide guitar in You Gotta Move and a load of other fine aspects just is more apparent.

At home all of the above were even more obvious. In particular the background is totally silent, no hiss at all to cloud the music.I also notice that the disc has not been mastered to be loud like all too many over compressed offerings these days. The sounds just emerge out of silence.

Sound quality 5 stars, no attempt to do anything new with the cd liner notes/artwork 3 stars.

The sonic differences are noticeable, not life changing or essential, rather small but perfectly formed. I reckon I will end up buying the lot over a period of time and replacing the last lot. Damn this addiction!!!

So the first batch of Stones remasters are upon us and what are we getting for our hard earned cash?

The packaging is the same as the previous Virgin issues from 1997, no extra photos from the cover shoot or sessions. No insightful sleeve notes from someone like Roy Carr or Charles Shaar-Murray whose long out of print Rolling Stones - An Illustrated Record is still required reading.

The mastering is a big improvement over previous issues with some of the distortion removed from Brown Sugar and numbers like Sway and Moonlight Mile no longer sounding as murky as they did before.

On the down side the discs have not been issued as hybrid s.a.c.d. like the A.B.K.C.O. issues of the Stones' Decca back catalogue from a few years back which set the bar higher for Stones issues.. The c.d. cases are also those flimsy super audio jewel boxes which seem to be the fashion these days and they break all too easily.

I don't have too much to say about the music except it's place as one of rock's greatest albums is wholly justified. This remaster further cements that reputation.

A Stones nut like me will buy without hesitation. Others will have to decide if the sound improvement is worth the extra outlay. Reservations about format and packaging aside I would say "go for it".

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on 20 July 2007
Format: Audio CD
This landmark 1971 album gave the Stones a massive hit with Brown Sugar. Together with Bitch and the extended jam Can't You Hear Me Knocking it is one of three powerful rock songs while the rest of the album contain soulful, bluesy or country-tinged ballads.

These ballads are all rather dark and brooding, from the melancholy Wild Horses to the unoriginally titled but moving I Got the Blues and the chilling Sister Morphine, whilst Dead Flowers with its country flavor has poetic lyrics and an addictive tune.

The album concludes with the yearning Moonlight Mile, a final unforgettable track. This mix of melodious ballads and power rock make Sticky Fingers a masterpiece and one of that decade's top albums by the greatest rock band of all time.

Exile on Main St (which is a great record) often gets the plaudits but Sticky Fingers pushes it to a very close photo finish. Simply put, it is a great album with the Stones, perhaps feeling more confident and "sparky" with Mick Taylor now in the band, take on the blues, ballads, country rock alongside their more "traditional" Chuck Berry like output. Several of the tracks were recorded in Alabama and it shows - the remastered version of Wild Horses is worth the price of the cd alone. Furthermore, as we now know from his excellent autobiography, by now Keith had mastered his own form of open tuning and his playing throughout the album is simply magnificent.

Perhaps they had been listening to early Santana because by track 4; Can't you here me knocking, they were in the mood for an extended "jam" session, a term later abused by "progressive rock" but in this context it demonstrates all of their talents to excellent effect. From the beginning "killer riff" from Uncle Keith through to Bobby Keyes saxophone and then finally in comes Mick Taylor with some fabulous lead guitar. This track is a true delight.

Jagger sings well, Charlie Watts is his usual sublime mode of percussive economy and in so doing demonstrates what rock drumming is all about.

However in the end great albums all need great songs; Brown Sugar, Wild Horses, Sister morphine, I got the blues (with a fabulous organ solo from the late lamented Billy Preston), Moonlight Mile and arguably Sway are all up there with the best of the Stones canon. A fabulous record and the remastered version has finally done justice to the CD format. Highly recommended.

I hope you enjoy
Roger Bell
