The amount of drugs and the lack of sleep at Nellcote...it's a wonder none of them died!

Nothing much to say that I don't say in my review other than, this book is absolutely essential if you're a Stones fan.

Sticky Fingers is receiving the Deluxe Edition just like Exile and Some Girls did a few years back. YES!!

It is although a bit disappointing that the Leeds show is just a lift off the bootleg...I'll save my $ and keep my bootlegs. Same with the bonus tracks, most of them I've had for ages although a few look interesting. This looks more like a "listen on Spotify" rather than spend $ on reissue.

I see where you're coming from, Drew. I too (as you know) have the majority of the stuff that will be on the bonus discs. But they'll at least be remastered I imagine. The Exile bonus disc was all remastered and sounded so much better than the same tracks on bootlegs. I'll be getting it anyway, I love things like this. I can remember going to buy the Exile deluxe edition and the same with Some Girls. I can't wait to get it!

I haven't been impressed with the quality of the Stones remasters over the past few years...too harsh and brickwalled. The 1990s Virgin remasters (which are the ones I have) sound MUCH better. I did read credible rumors that the Marquee '71 show that's everywhere on bootleg will be available as a standalone DVD later in the year but again, it's sourced from the bootleg (as I've heard) so not sure it's worth picking up. The same thing happened with the Who when they released the Houston '75 show on DVD...they just officially released a ubiquitous bootleg DVD in the same quality, so I saved my $$.

I was stunned today to find out that Keith is on the front of this weeks NME and the main article inside is on the great Sticky Fingers album. I had a flick through, looked ok, may purchase tomorrow. JUST for this article though. The rest of the magazine looked crap.

Thanks for sharing that! Among one of my all-time fave Stones albums... No weak moments whatsoever!

I've added a poll question so we can discuss quite a big thing - different guitarists in the band. Brian Jones, Mick Taylor and Ronnie Wood. Which is your favourite?

Mick Taylor for me, hands down. His fluid guitar playing really added an extra dimension during his time in the band and they arguably made their best music with Mick Taylor on board too. Sticky Fingers and Exile On Main Street in particular. Stunning with Taylor all over the shop!

Agreed....from a pure guitarist standpoint..... But I love how versatile Brian was and he provided the Stones such a different dimension that got phased out by both Mick and Keith later on and they haven't approached that since....

For me, Taylor > Jones (but not by too much) >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Wood. Although a huge amount of this is also down to Keith and Mick's declining skills as songwriters.

I like their 60s music best - though they did continue to be worthwhile creatively until the early 80s.
