Editors’ Notes

When the Stones began recording Sticky Fingers on their 1969 American tour, with Muscle Shoals sessions that took in "Brown Sugar," "Wild Horses,” and "You Gotta Move." Altamont hadn't happened yet. When the finished album appeared in spring 1971, it was the work of a wiser, yet finally unapologetic, band. (Does that cover look like an "I'm sorry"?) It's a lusty party album that was nonetheless steeped in fever dreams. "Brown Sugar" found Jagger and Richards pushing boundaries of racial complexity by imagining the sexual escapades of slaves and masters, while "Sister Morphine" was a nightmare about addiction. But there's also dread here ("Sway," whose lyrics are buried within one of the Stones' most battering performances), as well as redemption (the lyrical closer "Moonlight Mile"). Brian Jones' replacement Mick Taylor is a major force here, lending new sonic shadings to the clamor. Fundamentally different in tone than Beggars Banquet and Let It Bleed, it was equally unique.

Customer Reviews

Evolutionary

In the face of the passing of the "British Invasion" as the Beatles were disbanded, there seemed to be a refreshing new direction for bands like the Stones. ( And the Who with Who's Next) This was an all around diverse album, with the blues heritage still in play- but so much more. "Cant You Hear Me Knockin" and "Moonlight Mile" were songs that really stood above previous pieces. "Wild Horses" and "Brown Sugar" became classics. And the original album complete with a real zipper was classic. Just a gem in a line of jems for a band that really kept evolving with time. THe music holds up very well.

Jag-off is on!

The Rolling Stones best. Unbelievable guitar playing and Jagger's voice at it's best.
Mick and Mick really had something magical here. Makes me want to get out the scotch!!

By the time the Rolling Stones began calling themselves the World's Greatest Rock & Roll Band in the late '60s, they had already staked out an impressive claim on the title. As the self-consciously dangerous alternative to the bouncy Merseybeat of the Beatles in the British Invasion, the Stones had pioneered the gritty, hard-driving blues-based rock & roll that came to define hard rock. With his preening machismo and latent maliciousness, Mick Jagger became the prototypical rock frontman,...
