Sticky Fingers is a regular fixture near the top of 'Greatest Albums Of All Time'lists. For many it is the greatest album The Rolling Stones ever made, and it's not hard to hear why.
Its heady blend of classic rockers like 'Brown Sugar', the country-influenced perfection of 'Dead Flowers, and two of The Stones' greatest ballads, 'Wild Horses' and 'Moonlight Mile' achieves a kind of perfection.This re-mastered version more than does the Rolling Stones' genius justice.
While the making of Sticky Fingers was something of a piecemeal affair, with its origins in a number of sessions recorded in the States and the UK, the playing and production couldn't be tighter.
Here's how Charlie Watts remembers it. 'During the tour of the States we went to Alabama and played at the Muscle Shoals Studio. That was a fantastic week. We cut some great tracks, which appeared on Sticky Fingers - 'You Gotta Move', 'Brown Sugar' and 'Wild Horses' - and we did them without Jimmy Miller, which was equally amazing. It worked very well: it's one of Keith's things to go in and record while you're in the middle of a tour and your playing is in good shape.'
The Rolling Stones are named the most successful band of all time in the Guinness Book of Records
