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.
