For me, The Rolling Stones best albums were recorded in the late '60s and early '70s. "Sticky Fingers" was originally released in 1971 and is utterly essential. It is a heady mix of Stonsey-swaggering rock, stoned blues and cosmic country. We all know opener "Brown Sugar", pretty much the archetypal Stones rocker. It is followed by spine-tingling groove of "Sway", which for me is the best track on here. "Wild Horses" is next which, although penned by Jagger & Richards was originally recorded by Gram Parsons' Flying Burrito Brothers, Parsons being a big influence on the band at the time. Blues-rock epic "Can't You Hear Me Knocking" really turns up the heat before their cover of Fred McDowell's "You Gotta Move", which shows the band at their rootsy best.
Rocker, "Bitch" kicks off an awesome side two with the perfect and soulful "I Got The Blues" following up. "Sister Morphine" recalls the sound of their "Beggars Banquet" LP. The bar room sing-a-long country strummer "Dead Flowers" is superb and closing track "Moonlight Mile" is brilliant, leaving you wanting more, so you put the whole thing on again.
