Format: Audio CD
With the old Virgin 1994 remaster and this new 2009 Polydor version 'both' clocking in at exactly 44:26 minutes, I immediately had my suspicions about this latest rehash masquerading as something new for soppy Stones fans like me and a million others. But this 2009 Polydor CD is a FANTASTIC IMPROVEMENT in sound over its 1994 predecessor - it really is...

If I were to nail down what's different - it would be the BASS and DRUMS. They're suddenly so clear now - and in some cases like "Worried About You" - it's truly startling how good they sound. In fact if feels like every single track has been uplifted out of its former rhythm section muddiness. The clarity and punch is great on everything really. STEPHEN MARCUSSEN and STEWART WHITMORE at Marcussen Mastering in Hollywood, California did the transfers and they're to be praised for their work...

As you've no doubt already read, "Tattoo You" was a ragbag of outtakes from previous albums with a few new tunes thrown in - Rockers on the A with Ballads on the B. Yet it worked - I played it to death on release - loved it - especially the soulful Side 2.

Unfortunately, the new packaging is a bit of a joke. The 'furry boot' inner sleeve that came with the original LP is reproduced in a paltry gatefold inlay, but there's no lyrics (there's a European LP that has a lyric sheet insert - they could have used that). The startling Christian Piper tattooed 'Three Paintings' are reduced to a point where the credits on the green-coloured rear sleeve are barely legible. The inlay beneath the see-through CD tray is blank - wow - push the boat out boys! But much worse - and like so many Stones LPs - guest musicians who contributed incredible work at the time are now not mentioned on reissues at all.

Format: Audio CD
Tattoo You contains some raucous rock 'n roll and a couple of beautiful, soulful ballads. Although not considered to be amongst their very best albums, there is enough here to make it a worthwhile purchase.
The opener, Start Me Up, is the Stones at their high powered best with its killer riff and insistent rhythm, whilst the melodic Hang Fire with its impressive vocals comes a close second. These were big hits and can be found on many Stones compilations.
The bluesy Black Limousine and the reggae-influenced Slave aren't bad either, but ballads like Tops and Heaven fall somewhat beneath their high standards. This may be forgiven though, since the closing number, the poignant Waiting On A Friend sees them at their soulful best. It's a moving ballad on a par with earlier great moments such as Wild Horses and Dead Flowers from 1971s Sticky Fingers album.
Overall Tatto You is thus an uneven work but the aforementioned highlights more than make up for the few tepid and uninspired ballads. I give it four stars but that is judging it by the high standards of their own work.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
So this is the album that consisted of tracks that were left over from other albums and a couple of new ones, a filler perhaps in the bigger scheme of things. But it all hangs together so well, so well, in my humble opinion, that as an album it was the last great Stones album. There is not a track on it that I do not like, or rate as being amongst the best 30 they ever wrote(how many rock bands have so many to pick from?).

Start me up, a clarion call to the male undead, well not quite,(how did this get past the BBC censors?), an instantly recogniseable classic with an intro as good as any ever written. Slave, a leftover from Black and Blue as far as I remember, a great lolling funky number. Black Limousine, a great bluesy rocker and one of the very few songs with a writing credit to someone other than the Glimmers themselves-well done Woody!

The last five numbers are stunning slow numbers, possibly the strongest tracks on the album. I love them. Great soulful singing and emotive playing by all. Waiting on a Friend - a stunner!! The sax solo by Sonny Rollins just tops off what is already a truly wonderful song and makes it essential.

The remastering has really brought out every last drop of music from an already super sounding album. Bills bass playing has tune rather than thud and is a relevation in certain numbers. Charlies brushwork on Heaven is sublime, the jazzer in him really pays off here.

The artwork is the most disappointing aspect of this release. The green chosen for the back cover is too dark to easily read the track listing, unlike the original, or even the Virgin reissue, and the image of Keef resplendant in tribal tattoo pattern looks like fourth generation photocopy, all nasty pixelated noise and stuff. The attention to the artwork has been less than average across this series of remasters. I would have done better myself if they had asked!

A sonic masterpiece! Only just pipped at the post by Some Girls.

The thing I want to stress in this review is that I advise everybody to buy the Virgin releases as long a they are available. These are the best masters the Stones albums of the seventies and later have ever had. I checked a few of these with cool-edit and these masters are using the complete dynamic range of the CD format without hitting saturation to often.

The older masters on CBS were clearly less good (although not suffering satuaration and clipping), while the new Universals are victim to the loudness war (check Wiki if you don't know what this is). I own the SE of Exile on Universal, and kept the Virgin next to it. The Universal SE is only in my collection for the bonus disc.

Star rating is for the album, not the mastering.
