"Jim Keltner and I, I’m proud to say, were there every night of the making of that album, which went on for a couple of months. Every night, we were at the studio with the Rolling Stones, playing great stuff and wondering what we were going to play next. Figuring out what to play. Going back in and playing some more.
It was a magical period of my life and Jim’s."

Mick, please, give us an expanded B2B! You'll please your fans and you'll show the whole world the Stones were - like Dylan - able to release an excellent late-career album.
Dylan did it - also in 1997 - with TOOM to critical acclaim, but B2B was largely ignored or lambasted.

Do it, Mick! 2022 will be the 25th anniversary of the album! thumbs up

There were a handful of great cuts on it but I don't think the 'deluxe' treatment is warranted.

Now that the major albums have been done, I think clearing the shelves like the Beatles did in the 90s with some 'official' outtakes and previously unreleased would be welcomed. They have the material as they've proved with the Fully Finished Studio Outtakes unofficial release this year.

They could do a cd2 album just with the extra tracks they recorded at Ocean Way, not counting what appeared this year on the Ffso boot :
Don’t Apologize, Ever Changing World, Feeling Now, High Or Low, I’m Cured, Precious Lips, Smooth Stuff...

PLUS a few alt./early versions of BTB songs would make a nice re-release imo.

Waddy Wachtel currently plays with Russ Kunkel and Steve Postell? Sounds sketchy

According to timeisonourside.com Waddy plays rhythm guitar on Flip The Switch, lead guitar on Anybody Seen My Baby, slide guitar on Lowdown, the riff guitar on Saint Of Me, supposedly one of the guitars on Out Of Control and Might As Well Get Juiced (can't figure out which ones that might be, though), acoustic guitar on Always Suffering, rhythm guitar on Too Tight and Thief In The Night (can't hear those, either) and one of the three guitars on How Can I Stop.

Huh! Knew he was there, but didn't realize that he played on so many tracks. He basically was a Rolling Stones guitarist on that album.

What was the story there? Keith seemingly invited him yes, but did they feel like there was problems on that department that they wanted to have an extra guitarist there (just in case)?

Or he did the dirty jobs Keef didn't want to bother with, like playing on a track that had too much of a "Dust Bros" flavour?

He used to play with himself but it got him into trouble.

Seen Waddy a couple times, with Keith in 93 and with Stevie Nicks in 16. Saw Lee Sklar I believe with Phil Collins around 1990.

On that track Keith played his a$$ off, though. Supposedly before the brothers added their 'dust'.

Waddy’s guitar meshes so well with Keith’s

"All of the sudden, Mick [Jagger] just said to me, “Waddy, come here, you’ve got to play on this song.” I went, “What?” He said, “Yeah, you gotta do the Keith stuff on this song. He doesn’t want to do it.” Or something like that. I went, “Really? Oh, okay.” So I did the Keith stuff!"

That has to be SOM, best/most memorable guitar part on a Stones record for decades !

It is a bit, how to say it, ackward that the dudes are making a Rolling Stones track and someone else than Keith (or even Ronnie or Mick himself) is there doing a pure Keith Richards-sounding guitar contribution. I mean, from the point of Waddy - good for him, but still that might have sounded odd for him - acting Keith to Mick... And then they make a video of it with Keith mimicking the guitar part...

But with the Stones anything is possible. I guess it was one of those days/times The Twins had a bit tension between them. Thinking of "Saint Of Me" - a pretty classical sounding Stones tune - it is hard to think that Keith refused to play because the tune wasn't right sort of thing (as it seemingly has been the case sometimes). Sounds more like it was a general 'fvck you, Mick' mood or something... those brothers...grinning smiley

It seems that during the making of BTB there were lot of musicians involved in the process. It is a case of a "record" for the Stones? Was it an experimemt? The more the better?
I love BTB the record, the US tour , the"Double Door" gig club in Chicago.
Rockandroll,

If it was a toss off to Mick because of the production value for Keith not being on Saint... I've wondered, if Mick were to really use his head, why didn't they just track all the songs with the band and then... do the Dust Brothers etc stuff after.

That way, Keith is on it. Saint is no different than if it was just the Stones doing it straight up.

Doesn't matter now. As it is Keith has had to play it live quite a bit here and there. So that's what he gets. Not the first time a Stone has had to play live on something he didn't record on at the time.
