Going strong since 1962 and getting better with age! The Rolling Stones are true living legends, and here’s a round-up of recent reissues of choice selections from the band’s catalog. Originally released in 1969, Let It Bleed is heavily influenced by gospel, blues and country, and the album contains classics like “Gimme Shelter” and “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.” This is the 2013 reissue of the LP, fully mastered and pressed on 180g clear vinyl.
Exile On Main St. dropped as a double album in 1972, and it contains favorites like “Rocks Off,” “Rip This Joint,” “Shake Your Hips,” and “Tumbling Dice.” Widely considered one of the best works from Stones, the 18-tracker also finds itself on plenty of “greatest of all time” lists. Jagger, despite his “boredom” with rock & roll, is in top form, and Keith Richards shreds away with some of the rawest playing to be recorded.
The year was 1978 when The Rolling Stones released Some Girls, and disco was in full swing. In response, and as a result of Jagger being somewhat blase about rock & roll, the band incorporates bits of the glitzy genre into the album. The move ended up being very well received, and in addition to a Grammy nod, tracks like “Miss You,” Shattered,” and “Beast of Burden” continue to receive love.
