The Rolling Stones Get Your Leeds Lungs Out on Sticky Fingers Super Deluxe 1971

The classic studio album Sticky Fingers has been re-released in June 2015 in several different versions with various extra goodies.

I’m not going to write about the studio album. It’s one of my very favourites and this version has the 2009 remastering that has been criticised by audiophiles but I can’t hear any problems.

The Deluxe Version has the following extras:

1. Brown Sugar (Alternate Version with Eric Clapton)
2. Wild Horses (Acoustic Version)
3. Can’t You Hear Me Knocking (Alternate Version)
4. Bitch (Extended Version)
5. Dead Flowers (Alternate Version)
6. Live With Me (Live At The Roundhouse, 14 March 1971)
7. Stray Cat Blues (Live At The Roundhouse, 1971)
8. Love In Vain (Live At The Roundhouse, 1971)
9. Midnight Rambler (Live At The Roundhouse, 1971)
10. Honky Tonk Women (Live The Roundhouse, 1971)

While the Super Deluxe version adds the famous bootleg recorded at Leeds University on 13 March 1971 called Get Your Leeds Lungs Out plus a DVD with two songs from the Roundhouse gig and two 7″ singles, Brown Sugar and Wild Horses.

Obviously it’s the live tracks that most interest me. We have plenty of late period live albums from the Stones when they played with Ronnie Wood, and, let’s be honest, they were past their best. What we don’t have is enough live recordings with their earlier lead guitarists, Brian Jones and, in particular, Mick Taylor.

The big question is “how well do these new 1971 live recordings stand up to comparison with their great live albums Get Yer Ya Ya’s Out from 1969 and The Brussels Affair from 1973. These are the leading albums in my poll top find the best legal live recordings by the Stones.

The Rolling Stones Sticky Fingers Live

Sticky Fingers is one of the best studio albums by The Rolling Stones and, indeed, one of the best studio albums by any group at any time.

It was recorded between 1969 and 1971 and released in April 1971 and features the classic song Brown Sugar.

It has a notorious album cover featuring the groin of a man and the original vinyl sleeves had a real zip for the fly. The back cover is even more revealing as the denim jeans have come off.

We don’t have a live album from tours promoting Sticky Fingers or the next album, Exile On main Street so the songs haven’t made as many appearances as you might expect on the many live recordings by The Rolling Stones.

In May 2015, The Rolling Stones performed the entire Sticky Fingers live in concert and the recording has been released as Sticky Fingers Live.

This article also needs to be updated for recent releases including the re-releases of the Sticky Fingers studio album with live tracks from 1971.
