Editors’ Notes

While the Rolling Stones have still never issued an official live album from their classic 1972 tour, they have seemingly documented every tour since with a live album that showcases their ever-growing catalog and their erratic performing abilities. This is a band who teeter on the brink of being the very best and the very worst live act at any unsuspecting moment, often in the same night. Capturing their wild mojo is an elusive task that no live album can seemingly accomplish though these recordings come closer than should be expected. Live Licks sums up their 2002-2003 World Tour split between obvious crowd-pleasers ("Brown Sugar," "Angie," "Honky Tonk Women," "Satisfaction") and hardcore fan obscurities ("Neighbours," "Rocks Off," "That's How Strong My Love Is"). The band sounds energized throughout, and while the addition of backing vocals, extra keyboards and horn sections sometimes dilute the band's raw power, they manage to hold together for dramatic readings ("Gimme Shelter," "Monkey Man" "Worried About You") of tunes that prove their timelessness and apparent indestructibility
