As Keith says in Life: Keith Richards
"It was only the early skirmishing, the phoney war. The work itself wasn't bad, somehow; the album did well."
Things might not have been great with the Glimmer Twins at the time of Undercover but they still produced an album with some great tracks.
It won't be the best Stones album for most people and may sound dated (maybe not standing the test of time as much as Exile On Main Street [Remastered
]or It's Only Rock 'N' Roll
from a decade or so before)...
But this is one I am still listening to three decades on from when I first played it.
It sounded great then, and listening to it today on cd it still sounds great.
Undercover Of The Night
She Was Hot
Tie Me Up (The Pain Of Love)
Wanna Hold You
Feel On Baby
Too Much Blood
Pretty Beat Up
All The Way Down
It Must Be Hell
Keith, as well as giving us some great riffs plays some nice bass on Pretty Beat Up.
Pretty Beat Up is a great (Ronnie Wood) Stones Track that Mick and Keith didn't want to include on the album (allegedly) -why? Check out Ronnie's version on Slide on Live
