Landmark 1971 Record Expertly Remastered for Soulful, Bluesy, Detailed Sound: Super Deluxe Reissue Includes Remastered Album, Two Bonus CDs with Unreleased Performances, DVD, and 7"
Hear ‘em knocking from a moonlight mile away. Sticky Fingers, the Rolling Stones' swaggering and swaying 1971 opus that ranks among the greatest rock records ever made, gets restored on this explosive Super Deluxe Edition featuring one bonus CD with ten previously unreleased alternate takes and live tracks and another disc capturing a live concert from Leeds in March 1971. Andy Warhol's working zipper is also reinstated, and the remastered sound makes Mick, Keith, ace lead guitarist Mick Taylor, and company come alive in vivid, raw, blues-soaked detail. A DVD, 7" single, and 120-page hardcover book with new liner notes, unseen photographs, band cut-out, and more round out this blowout reissue. Wild horses won't even be able to drag you away.
Sticky Fingers captures the band at the absolute peak of its powers on timeless tracks such as "Brown Sugar," "Wild Horses," "Bitch," "Sister Morphine" and "Dead Flowers." The effort was was recorded in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, Stargroves, Mick's country home, and Olympic Studios in London. Produced by Jimmy Miller, the album ranks #63 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list and originally came out released shortly after the Stones became exiled in the south of France.
New to this Super Deluxe Edition is a surfeit of must-hear bonus material. The ten selections on the first bonus disc include the alternative version of the chart-topping single "Brown Sugar" featuring Eric Clapton; unreleased interpretations of "Bitch," "Can't You Hear Me Knocking," and "Dead Flowers"; an acoustic take on the anthemic "Wild Horses", and five tracks recorded live at the Roundhouse in 1971, including "Honky Tonk Women" and "Midnight Rambler."
The Super Deluxe Edition also houses Get Yer Leeds Lungs Out, a 13-track recording of the Stones' gig in Leeds in March 1971, performed shortly before their "exile" in France. The set includes versions of the just-completed "Brown Sugar," "Bitch" and "Dead Flowers." You can also see two numbers from the band's famous Marquee Club show on March 26, 1971 on DVD. This is in addition to the beautiful 120-page hardback book complete with real zipper, new liner notes, and many rare and unseen photographs from the era--plus a print, postcard set, and more.
The first sessions that led to Sticky Fingers took place as far back as December 1969, in the remote location of Muscle Shoals Sound Studios, Alabama. The band then reconvened, back home in the UK both at Olympic and with the Rolling Stones Mobile parked up at Jagger's Stargroves home. Soon after the album hit, Sticky Fingers became the band's sixth UK #1 LP. Its four-week reign was matched by its performance in the US, and it also raced to the top in Australia, Canada, and through much of Europe. Today, it's rightly considered a near-peerless classic.
