Editors’ Notes

Vintage Vinos was released as a companion to Life, Keith’s Richards’ 2010 autobiography. Compiled from his three solo albums, it opens with “Take It So Hard” from 1988’s Talk Is Cheap sounding like Keith wasn’t quite finished exploring the trail blazed on Exile On Main St. — though he’s backed by the X-Pensive Winos here, who play more like the Faces than the Stones. Purportedly “You Don’t Move Me” was a pointed jab at Mick Jagger, so it makes perfect sense for the tune to appear here since passages of Keith’s book make light of Mick’s social gallivanting. The reggae infused “Too Rude” gives the X-Pensive Winos plenty of room to explore, making for a tune that would sit perfectly next to Seed Of Memory-era Terry Reid on a mix. But the song also shows that where others may have relied on studio hands, Richards actually assembled a band and hashed-out the arrangements to develop an honest chemistry. Hearing them play Stones’ staples “Time Is On My Side” and “Happy” reveals Keith’s more rootsy approach.

Customer Reviews

Great to have on iTunes

I'm really pleased to see that these songs are finally available on iTunes. While I think that "Connection" live, is one of the best songs on here, the album is sorrowfully lacking "Whip It Up." I think that's Keith's best solo song--go find it online and have a listen.

Good Ol' Keith

This is pretty good. It puzzles me though, why this album wasn't advertised anywhere prior to release. Usually when a member of one of the biggest bands in the history of the world does a solo album, you can't not hear about it, whether it be a journalist writing a hype article or a commercial on tv. I like the fact Keith did a few Stones songs. I've heard him say Connection is his fav song of the Stones, so it wasn't a stretch for him to decide to put it on here. It'd have been cool to hear him re-do Youve Got The Silver, or any song that originally had Mick on vox. I was surprised how good of condition his voice is in, too. I'd thought it might be a trainwreck, but it is as good as ever.

My dreams have come true!

The book and now the missing tunes from my youth. Keith's solo albums were the best with the X-Pensive Winos. The starting riffs of Struggle still blow me away. Thanks for everything Keith. You are rock and roll; the salt of the earth.

Biography

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

He's acknowledged as perhaps the greatest rhythm guitarist in rock & roll, but Keith Richards is even more legendary for his near-miraculous ability to survive the most debauched excesses of the rock & roll lifestyle. His prodigious consumption of drugs and alcohol has been well documented, and would likely have destroyed anyone with a less amazing endurance level. On-stage with the Rolling Stones, he epitomized guitar-hero cool as the quiet, stoic alter ego to Mick Jagger's extroverted frontman,...
