Description

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. see more...

This is my favorite Rolling Stones album! My favorite song on this album is Brown Sugar! This album is timeless and I listen to it all the time! It’s a classic and a must listen! If you’re a Stones fan and haven’t listened to this album do yourself a favor and buy it!

Sticky Fingers is the ninth -- and one of my favorite -- Rolling Stones albums. Like all my other favorite classic rock and roll, I literally grew up listening to this. This is going to sound so "farty" now but back in the 70s there was actually controversy over the interactive zipper on the album cover. Can you imagine anyone thinking that way nowadays?! Hell to the no!

As an FYI, Sticky Fingers was so wildly popular reached TRIPLE PLATINUM status! Some of my favorite Rolling Stones songs from this album - and songs in general - are on this album. If you never listened to "Brown Sugar", "Wild Horses", "Can't You Hear Me Knocking", or the ballad "Moonlight Mile", I highly recommend you give them a listen. I realize more just about 50 years have passed since Sticky Fingers was released but do yourself a favor and open your mind... I guarantee you'll be pleased!!

My favorite Stones album hands down it is a classic and timeless. From start to finish you cannot stop singing along and you do not want to skip any songs on the album. My favorites are Brown Sugar which is the opening track and Wild Horses and the underrated classic Dead Flowers

After seeing these guys live in 2015 I knew I owed it to myself to put the album away and have a listen to the remastered cd. Excellent cd! Always was and always will be! Absolutely legendary album from The a KINGS OF ROCK N ROLL!

This is amazing music and I love having this cd. It's not the same to just buy on iTunes. It makes it so much better to be able to pop this cd in whenever I want. I love this music!

A blast from a band that has carried through the 60's and beyond. Ever changing powerful lyrics. A band that can entertain any age group.

A must have classic Stones album. Some of their most known hits come from this album. Rock and roll gods and a foundational rock album.
