Just the other week, STICKY FINGERS was reissued.  Available in a variety of formats, this is not a remaster job but more of a repacking job (with some bonus extras).

If you are into CDs, there is the Deluxe Version.  2CDs plus a small booklet.  The first CD is the 2009 digital remaster of the original LP.  The second CD contains some well-known and well-bootlegs alternate takes (Eric Clapton and Al Koopler playing Brown Sugar!!!).  It also contains some live tracks from the Rolling Stones performance at the Roundhouse back in '71.

For a considerable amount more money, you can get the SUPER deluxe edition which includes a THIRD CD plus a DVD and a considerably bigger booklet.  The third CD is from their Leeds University 1971 show and has been bootlegged extensively as "Get Your Leeds Lungs Out".  I believe the bootleg has only been available in mono.  This new version has been cleaned up and is in glorious stereo.  Very nice!!!

The DVD is a teaser that contains a couple of tracks from the Stones' show at the Marquee Club in 1971.  The Rolling Stones: From The Vault series has just released the Marquee Club 1971 show in its entirety and is a beaut.  The show is the last UK show before the Stones went into self-exile to France to get away from the oppressive British tax laws.

There is also a single vinyl version of the original LP (again, sourced from the 2009 remaster).  There is also a double-LP version which includes the outtakes and Roundhouse songs mentioned earlier.  The 2-LP version also includes a working zipper (see photo), the single LP does NOT.

I should also mention that you can go to the iTunes store and purchase the 3CDs from there.  At $19.99 it's a great price, but no booklets, but a very nice digitial copy.

A classic LP that should be in every music lover's collection. 


Ok.  I really want to try taking another serious stab at this webpage.  I just want something and someplace to publish my ideas and opinions on music and other interests.

Please remember to tune in to every Friday night at 8pm EST.  This is my show.  Produced and put together by me, it features a different topic every week.  I try to vary topics and content to keep things interesting.

Check it out!!!  Only on the greatest classic rock internet radio station, THUNDERROCK RADIO!!!
