Waking Up With… With THE STONES On A Cool Roll Back In 1971

Works faster than caffeine

This enrapturing live version of Dead Flowers from their
classic 1971 LP Sticky Fingers, was filmed in the legendary
Marquee Club in London the same year.

The Glimmer Twins upfront, Charlie Watts being Mister Cool,
Bill Wyman
as usual in the back, but Mick Taylor steals the
show with his magical guitar play.

It’s only rock ‘n’ roll…

See you in Brussels, imperishable motherrockers…

THE ROLLING STONES – Blues Rock Classic ‘STICKY FINGERS’ Released 50 Years Ago

Back in time…

24 April 2021

Active since 1962 – 23rd British and
25th American studio albums (so far).

First longplayer with Mick Taylor as official Stones member.
Released: 23 April 1971 – 50 years ago
Score: No 1 in the UK, US, Canada
and several European countries

Pitchfork wrote: “Given the weight of history behind it and its centrality to the
story of both the Rolling Stones and rock music as a whole, it can be difficult to
put on Sticky Fingers and try and hear it for what it was: the highly anticipated
new album from one of the biggest bands in the world, a group that at the time
hadn’t released a new one in two years (in 1971, that was an eternity). They were
called the World’s Greatest Rock’n’Roll Band for entirely too long, but if that
designation ever applied it was here.”
Full review here. Score: 10/10.

Turn Up The Volume: Nothing but sympathy for these devils.
