It's up there with the best they ever did, imo.

The only lacklustre performances are Dead Flowers and Let It Bleed, imo. The rest is excellent. So are some of the songs on Stripped Companion.

thumbs up thumbs up thumbs up thumbs up thumbs up

Top Live Album!

Feel proud to have 3 songs recorded in Lisbon, Portugal, the only ones in 50 years!

Love Stripped!

Even though some individual tracks are stellar (and all-over rather high quality)I have never get used to the 'nature' of album. Pretty hard to call it as a "live album". A strange combition of real live tracks and then these studio tracks, which reflect the then popular "unplugged" concept, and I don't it works very well. I think the television version, including wonderful version of "Gimme Shelter" is - and works - better.

But still my favourite late-day Stones album, thanks to those surprisingly fresh versions of old songs (esp. "The Spider And The Fly", "Wild Horses", "Love In Vain"). Damn good "feel" in them. But they should have left Dylan's masterpiece alone, one of their worst artistic choices ever (and damn, they even made a video of it).

this cd should have had tracks of the club gigs cause the shows were very good tracks like gimmie shelter from pardiso,still a fool,down in the bottom and gimmie shelter is only on single cd.

I don't disagree about it being a poor artistic choice. However, the rendition was excellent. In fact one of the best concert performances they ever have done, imo.

Like Voodoo it sits in that odd 90's retro thing that was in during that time, but much of that stuff has a coldness and plasticity to it that I could never really get past.

This is around when I saw them at Wembley and I was left with similar coldness after that too.

Voodoo, 1995 Wembley concert and Stripped are the stones being pushed by Don Was to be something they were not at the time and are not now, that being The Rolling Stones circa their first ten years.

I agree that play it rather well, but I think that - that they play it well according to their own standards - actually shows how the song is "too big" for them to have anything to say of it, or even do some kind of justice to it. The song just loses its magic, and sounds like "any other" song; technically or formally okay, but no real substance. And I think recording a version of maybe the most important rock track ever, was a rather cheap shot - I'm looking for their version of "A Day In The Life" or "Hey Jude"...

I think it says a lot that there was some years ago a thread here at IORR of best Dylan's covers, and no one suggested this...

I agree - but I had to point out how well they played it. And I've never heard an open G-tuned guitar sound so beautiful.

Clapton too fell in to the 90's retroism with From The Cradle.

Same coldness from that too.

It should be brilliant, but some how it just doesn't rise above it being some people in a studio playing music.

But Dylan's "answer" is good though, even though he haven't released "Brown Sugar" officially...

this whole unplugged thing was such a flash in the pan so to speak thing ,that lasted a couple of years then faded out. what a load. some artists material in my mind does not translate that well to acoustic unplugged instruments .

Many thanks! Have to see how this works on my new computer when I get home, all my cunning devices for things like unzipping RARs don't work on my Mac but maybe I won't need them.

They released it on Shine a Light the deluxe version. Not a great version though, Stripped is much better.

When it worked, sometimes magic happened, though, like Nirvana.

I think they got away with it because of a) the coincidence of their name check in the title, and b) it was a great version and a real crowd pleaser live.

Stripped is a great album! The 1st Stones album I ever bought.

Their version of Like A Rolling Stone is awesome! Killer video too! Damn all who dare say otherwise!! winking smiley

Maybe this is another of those newer fans vs. 'classic' fans. I don't get much out of Stripped as a studio recording. I'm sure this would have made a great concert, but it would have required much smaller venues with much smaller gate receipts, therefore being off the Stones radar. Hearing them do these songs live would have been a treat. But they really pale in comparison to their original studio recordings. And they don't have their bass player by this time to give it that extra Stones sound.

As I said, live, it would have been great, and you don't notice the bass playing as much in a live setting. I still think the Stones version of Like A Rolling Stone is a joke. It illustrates how lost they were studio wise in the 90s. They seemed incapable of coming up with anything fresh that expanded what they've already laid down. I know some people aren't fond of Steel Wheels, but I just listened to it in the car and, to me, it's the last Rolling Stones album with that magic chemistry.

Re: A Look Back On Stripped

What do you mean with studio, all the songs are live - either in the studio or on club stages?

How could the venues be smaller? In Toshiba Studios and in Portugal there were only a few people watching the live performances.

And Brixton, Olympia and Paradisio are hardly big venues...

The live B-sides were great, although Gimme Shelter is not nearly as good as what would come out on NO SECURITY. Live With Me is great - yet it's a bit thuggish.

Without any doubt though Black Limo and All Down The Line are beyond awesome, as well as Tumbling Dice.

I didn't care for I'm Free. I agree Let It Bleed is not very good but I do like Ronnie's playing in Dead Flowers. SFM is beyond brilliant. Shine A Light is great, Spider is nice - Honest I Do is even better though!

I thought Wild Horses, as nice as it is, is a bit weak. Angie - well, there's just no help for that one.

Slipping Away is nice. Love In Vain is pretty nice - unfortunately it will always be compared to the YA-YAS version.

Sweet Virginia is excellent.

It's really too bad they haven't done a deluxe reissue of this album - a whole second disc could be included with all of the B-sides etc as well as what else is left. Obviously a second disc would be...
