Let's drink to Sticky Fingers 40th anniversary! It might just be the best Stones album ever, even better than Exile.

I know a few fans who call SF the best Stones record.
I give EOMS the edge, but SF is incredible.

Sticky Fingers has been my favorite record for a long long time. It seems that the Rolling Stones must have been super motivated as that LP was the first record of theirs released on their own newly created Rolling Stones Records. Congratulations!!

I remember buying the LP after school at it's release day. Running home.
Playing it. Then giving a schoolmate a phonecall to play it over the phone.
My fav after 1st time hearing was Dead Flowers. 40 years and remembering it so well.

SF is probably the Stones' best album, one of the greatest records in the history of popular music.

My favorite album of all-time by any artist.

I can't imagine how many times I've played it from start to finish in one sitting. Too many. The songs leave you wanting more, so you keep on listening. From the rocking Brown Sugar to the powerful Moonlight Mile, this is one record that can never be matched.

I'll drink to Sticky Fingers!! Not a bad track on it, maybe not my favorite Stones album but in the top 3.

My favorite Stones album. My favorite album by anyone, with the possible exception of Who's Next.

This music is still fresh, golden era of our boys.
Mick T signed my SF last year.

Taylor has said in an interview (2001, ten years ago) that SF is "probably" his favorite Stones album, mentioning especially Brown Sugar and Sway.

He's said that about Beggars Banquet as well.

I think SF is the best of their 70's output though.

A little mention for Jeremy Spencer on that page. I love his slide playing. A little dotty, but so was Brian.

Sticky Fingers is quite a triumph that for some reason doesn't get the pub that it's bookends, Let It Bleed and Exile get. That might change as people don't think of the albums sequentially like we who lived through the times do. I still remember hearing Brown Sugar for the first time on an old jukebox in a pool hall. And Moonlight Mile is up there with the best productions. When those strings take off it's goose bumps time.

Exciting times. Just that one page is loaded with stuff. A 6 degrees of separation thing: I see Fuzzy Samuels mentioned with CSN&Y. He played bass with Alvin Lee and Taylor in late '81.

But I have to repeat: I have never done this before and am surprised at its impact on how I hear the album. I think the album makes MUCH more sense (at least in the CD age) in this order: BS; Bitch; CYHMK; Sway; DF; WH; IGTBlues; YGM; SM; and MLM. IMO it flows better. It takes you on a journey, mood-wise. I will not listen to it again in its original order. That sounds extravagant, but I am serious.

Well, it makes me wonder if in a hundred years and people are still listening to this music whether they'll keep them all neat and tidy in their individual albums and running orders. Many of us who grew up in the time can still probably give the positioning of each cut on Beatles and Stones albums. This already became less relevant as the CD ruined the concept of album sides.

HM, the question was indeed "Which album you played on etc".

I love Exile dearly, but Sticky Fingers is the definitive, quintessential Stones record. Period. If you dare argue this with me I may have to show you the blade.

I was depressed when I realised that it was as long from Let it Bleed until The Stones Roses as it was from The Stones Roses until today. And now today is yesterday. The day before yesterday. Balls.

Probably my choice for Stones Album No. 2 (after Beggars Banquet).

I found this yetsrday in Clash, and how true is about optimisam of 60's and nihilism of 70's. And what to say about 80's and so...

Sticky is a solid Respectable second to Exile in greatest Stones albums.

The 80's? That's a good question. I am among the ones who don't like most of the music from that decade. Yeah I love to hate the 80's. "New Wave" was the shit, and to me that was it was. Things had to be new,slick,bright&shiny,moneymaking,Wallstreet, ruthless,so ...capitalism in the 80's .

It's already become completely irrelevant as itunes has ruined the concept of albums.

Let's celebrate!! It was a new sound with horns back in those days. Open a beer and put it in your stereo tonight........and hear what a fantastic record it is! Maybe the best one ever. It's more of a problem that some of us that remember the day it was out in the shops - but it maybe a bigger problem for those that can't remember, he,he.
Hope to see you all on tour as soon as possible. Let`s hope some of the stuff from Sticky Fingers will be played live again!
.....and have a nice easter.

All the best.

A bridge. Never thought about this. But real true. Finalized by Exile. BB and LIB vs SF & Exile. No. 60's vs 70's and 80's. Nevetheless,aAll those four could be written now. Nothing to be changed. Intemporal.

I remember reading about the recording of "Brown Sugar,Wild Horses and You gotta move" done at Muscle Shoals in 1969 while the Stones were touring the USA. The studio was very rudimentary( compare to nowadays studios) and the recordings were made "on the fly". And yet the music that came out of that room is just purely beautiful.I'm drinking Rebel Yell to celebrate Sticky's 40th.Cheers!
Rock and Roll,
