So far I have only downloaded a pirate copy of this release. I dunno ... I'll probably buy it eventually, but I've already had the SF album for decades, they put nearly all the bonus tracks on youtube, I can't afford (don't wanna pay for) the Super Deluxe edition (which is the only way to get the Leeds show) ...

Anyway, the bonus tracks are good for the most part, Roundhouse tracks are fantastic (why didn't they release the whole show, for heaven's sake?) and Leeds is great too.

Available on iTunes now, just downloaded. Great live performances, and good to have some of those unreleased tracks in better quality.

On further listening to the live tracks, I have noticed that sometimes the engineer has reduced the high frequencies of MT's guitar in places (e.g. the first couple of verses of Stray Cat Blues roundhouse version), possibly with Keith also. I think this perhaps was done to make some guitars recede into the background more and not intrude too much in the song. The drums and vocals sound crisp and clear. A reasonable mix for the live stuff, but I wish the guitars had been crisp and clear and more care had been taken to allow all the instruments to be heard clearly.

Also the mastering is too loud but we'll never get away from this. It's quite a modern mix really. And there's the added digital echo to the instruments.

A shame really. The mix could have been so much better.

I'm not faulting the band, and it's great that we have the concerts released now, but the mix could have been better.

Keith Richards reflects on 'Sticky Fingers'


(Photo: Joa Sia, Bill Graham Archives)

Brian Mansfield, USA TODAY
June 8, 2015

The Rolling Stones released Sticky Fingers in 1971, but the classic album began a year and a half before in a small Alabama town.

The Stones started recording Sticky Fingers, which is being reissued Tuesday, in early December 1969 at Muscle Shoals Sound Studios in Sheffield, Ala. At the time, the Muscle Shoals region was developing a reputation for producing great R&B and rock records by artists such as Aretha Franklin, Joe Tex and Wilson Pickett.

"A lot of good music was coming out of there," guitarist Keith Richards says. "Every record, you'd say, 'Where was that recorded?' It would turn out to be Muscle Shoals. We took a little week off and said, 'We've got to try this room out.'"

The Stones cut three songs in Sheffield: Wild Horses; You Gotta Move, by bluesman Mississippi Fred McDowell; and Brown Sugar, a song the band debuted the following Saturday at the infamous concert at Altamont Speedway where four people died. The Stones completed the album over the next year and a half at London's Olympic Studios and at Mick Jagger's countryside English home using a mobile unit.

Sticky Fingers was the first Stones album without guitarist Brian Jones, who was dismissed from the band in June 1969 and drowned several days later. It was also the first on which Mick Taylor, who played guitar for the group until 1974, appeared throughout. Richards and Taylor developed a syncopated two-guitar give-and-take that Richards calls "the ancient form of weaving," a style that has become a distinctive part of the band's sound.

On songs like Brown Sugar, Bitch and Can't You Hear Me Knocking, Richards says, "I'm bouncing a lot off (drummer) Charlie Watts. Then, at certain points, Mick and I will swap roles."

Richards now has the same kind of interaction with Ronnie Wood, who joined the group after Taylor's departure. "We swap between rhythm and lead," Richards says. "You do it instinctively. You just look at each other and turn. That's the way it is with the guitars. You can't really tell who's doing what."

Richards isn't credited on the recording of Moonlight Mile, Sticky Fingers' final song and one shaping up to be a regular part of the Zip Code Tour set. "I always wished I was on it," he says. "I've found myself a little niche in it for the stage."

The new reissue includes alternate takes of Brown Sugar, Bitch, Can't You Hear Me Knocking and Dead Flowers, as well as an acoustic mix of Wild Horses emphasizes the open-tuned 12-string guitar Richards played on the song. "You get these resonations and harmonics going on with the 12-string," he says. "It's quite a powerful machine, especially if you use slide on it. There's that lovely octave split between the strings."

The deluxe Sticky Fingers also has alternate versions of Bitch, Dead Flowers and Can't You Hear Me Knocking, along with five live performances from The Roundhouse in London. A super-deluxe configuration also features a 13-song live recording of a March 1971 concert at Leeds University and a DVD with video of a pair of performances two weeks later at London's Marquee Club, the group's final performance before going into tax exile in France.

Unlike recent Stones reissues of 1972's Exile on Main Street and 1978's Some Girls, the Sticky Fingers project doesn't unearth songs the band left unfinished. Richards says there was a good reason: "The stuff from Sticky Fingers that didn't get on there spilled over onto Exile when we cut that a year later."

Lazy ass journalist. Brian & Keith started the ancient art of weaving. And Brian didn't die several days after being dismissed. And yes, Keith, you can tell the difference between who is playing lead. Ronnie is much more fluid and Keith doesn't play slide on stage anymore.

Thanks for the hint. Thats what 7digital told me too.I tried several times to download all three CDS at once and failed several times.although I downloaded it via differnet Internet Providers and used different (un)zip software tools. I finally downloaded every song separately and I succeeded ;-)
So all I can say is the music on CD 2 and 3 is spectacular and fine sounding and so is worth the money, which is only EURO 32,00.
But please buy the FLAC-Version for full sound enjoyment and not the ridiculous compressed and thin sounding mp3 files from e.g. Amazon.
