Artist: Rolling Stones
The Rolling Stones: Mick Jagger (vocals); Keith Richards, Mick Taylor (guitar, background vocals); Bill Wyman (bass); Charlie Watts (drums). Additional personnel: Ry Cooder (slide guitar); Paul Buckmaster (strings); Bobby Keys (saxophone); Jim Price (trumpet); Billy Preston (organ); Nicky Hopkins, Ian Stewart, Jim Dickinson, Jack Nitzche (piano); Rocky Dijon (congas); Jimmy Miller (percussion). Engineers include: Glyn Johns, Andy Johns, Jimmy Johnson. Recorded at Muscle Shoals Sound Studio, Muscle Shoals, Alabama and Olympic Studios, London, England. Digitally remastered by Bob Ludwig (Gateway Mastering Studios). Pieced together from outtakes and much-labored-over songs, Sticky Fingers has a loose, ramshackle ambience that belies both its origins and the dark undercurrents of the songs. It's a weary, drug-laden album -- well over half the songs explicitly mention drug use, while the others merely allude to it -- that never fades away, but barely keeps afloat. Apart from the classic opener, "Brown Sugar," the long workout "Can't You Hear Me Knocking," and the mean-spirited "Bitch," Sticky Fingers is a slow, bluesy affair, with a few country touches thrown in for good measure. The laid-back tone of the album gives ample room for new lead guitarist Mick Taylor to stretch out, particularly on the extended coda of "Can't You Hear Me Knocking." But the key to the album isn't the instrumental interplay -- although that is terrific -- it's the soulfulness of the songs. "Wild Horses" is their first non-ironic stab at a country song, and it is a beautiful, heart-tugging masterpiece. Similarly, "I Got the Blues" is a ravished, late-night classic that ranks among their very best blues. "Sister Morphine" is a horrifying overdose tale, and "Moonlight Mile," with Paul Buckmaster's grandiose strings, is a perfect closure: sad, yearning, drug-addled, and beautiful. With its offhand mixture of decadence, roots music, and outright malevolence, Sticky Fingers set the tone for the re...

Editorial Reviews:
Rolling Stone (12/11/03, p.113) - Ranked #63 in Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums Of All Time" - "...The album has tough, straight-up rock..." Rolling Stone (6/10/71, p.42) - "...driving, intense, wide-open rock..." Q (6/00, p.80) - Ranked #12 in Q's "100 Greatest British Albums" - "...Re-asserted their rebel status....there's something dark and dangerous lurking at the heart of the music. It was also their most overt drug album....The Rolling Stones' best 'tunes' album." Vibe (12/99, p.164) - Included in Vibe's 100 Essential Albums of the 20th Century Q (Magazine) (p.137) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "It's the Stones at their assured, showboating peak....[A] magic formula of heavy soul, junkie blues and macho rock..." NME (Magazine) (7/9/94, p.43) - 9 - Excellent Plus - "...captures the Stones bluesy swagger in a...dark-land where few dare to tread...even the jaunty country take 'Dead Flowers' has a derisive sneer beneath the hokum delivery..." Record Collector (magazine) (p.84) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "Jagger and Richards delve even further back to the primitive blues that first inspired them and step up their investigations into another great American form, country."
