Pleased To Meet You: Under- Appreciated Stones, Exibit A
Fingerprint File: Early attempt to try something more dancefloor orientated and downright funky. Comes complete with blatant nods to Sly & The Family Stone and James Brown.
It's Only Rock 'n' Roll (1974)
Little T&A: Classic Keith number which gives him ample room to trot out his inimitable blend woozy guitar riffs and gravel vocal stylings.
Tattoo You (1981)
She's So Cold: This one has a timeless Charlie Watts four to floor drum pattern and Mick doing his rockstar-in-Studio 54 thing. Superior.
Emotional Rescue (1980)
Too Much Blood: The track has Mick Jagger rapping about how he didn’t like the movie ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’.
This is backed by what disturbingly sounds like a synthesised latin rhythm. Has to be heard to be believed.
Dancing With Mr. D: We go down to the bayou with swampy blues riffing and sinister voodoo lyrics. With its authentic dingy feel, it sounds like something that escaped from the ‘Exile…’ sessions.
Goats Head Soup (1973)
When The Whip Comes Down: Jaggers faintly controversial lyrics may give this track bite, but the real fire comes from the buoyant band performances. Jaggers slurred delivery is vintage Stones.
Some Girls (1978)
