How do you follow a monumental achievement like the 1972 masterpiece Exile on Main Street? The short answer is: you can’t. And so if the Stones—who’d been on a massive roll of success from 1968’s Beggars Banquet through Exile finally made a less than acclaimed album, who could blame them? Hence the tale of 1973’s Goats Head Soup, the album forever blamed for the Stones inevitable stumble. While it’s true that nothing on Goats Head Soup is on the level of Exile’s many highlights (“Rip This Joint,” “Tumbling Dice,” “Sweet Virginia”), the album does have the Stones’ finest near-ballad—the hit single “Angie”—and “Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo (Heartbreaker),” with Billy Preston on organ, and whose lyrics suddenly have fresh relevance (“The police in New York City/ They chased a boy right through the park/ And in a case of mistaken identity/ The put a bullet through his heart”). After that, however, it’s a mixed bag. While they still can’t be mistaken for top drawer Stones, much of the rest of the album—tunes like “Hide Your Love,” “Winter” and “Can You Hear The Music”—is in retrospect not quite the filler they appeared to be in the wake of Exile.

Regarded as one of the greatest albums in Rock ‘n’ Roll history and one of the most defining of the Stones’ catalogue.

This new compilation features 10 tracks originally recorded during the Exile era and only recently discovered while working on the reissue project. The unearthed tracks which include such titles as ‘Plundered My Soul’, ‘Dancing in the Light’, ‘Following the River’ and ‘Pass The Wine’ have undergone a unique evolution, while staying true to the essence of the 1972 album. Alternate versions of ‘Soul Survivor’ and ‘Loving Cup’ also are a part of the Exile bonus materials.

Voodoo Lounge was the first Rolling Stones album to be made without Bill Wyman who had left the previous year. The band continued on as a four piece drafting Don Was in on production duties. The producer tried to get them to go back to basics – sometimes this was too basic for some listeners but the album was a relative success.

This album features the singles “Love Is Strong”, “You Got Me Rocking”, “Out Of Tears” and “I Go Wild”.

Half Speed ReMasters HiRes Re-Issue: Undercover is the 17th British (and 19th American) studio album by The Rolling Stones, originally released in 1983. After previous album ‘Tattoo You’ which was largely a selection of outtakes, Undercover was their first release of all new recordings in the 1980s. Tensions in the studio were high, with the band’s principal songwriters wanted to take the band in a different direction. Vocalist Mick Jagger wanted to embrace modern trends in music, such as reggae, world-beat, and new wave, while guitarist Keith Richards wanted the band to return to their blues rock roots. As a result, the album is an eclectic collection of songs, covering a wide range of styles. Besides other principal band members Ronnie Wood, Bill Wyman, and Charlie Watts, the album featured many guest musicians. It would be the last album released during Ian Stewart’s lifetime, a former member of the band and frequent contributor on piano.

Half Speed ReMasters HiRes Re-Issue: Tattoo You is the 16th British and 18th American studio album by The Rolling Stones, released in 1981. The follow-up to Emotional Rescue, it proved to be a big critical and commercial success. A very popular album upon release, it is the last Rolling Stones album to reach the top position of the US charts, concluding a string of #1’s dating back to 1971’s Sticky Fingers. Tattoo You is an album primarily composed of outtakes from previous recording sessions, some dating back a decade, with new vocals and overdubs. Along with two new songs, the Rolling Stones put together this collection in order to have a new album to promote for their worldwide American Tour 1981/European Tour 1982 beginning that September. Guitarist Keith Richards commented in 1993, “The thing with Tattoo You wasn’t that we’d stopped writing new stuff, it was a question of time. We’d agreed we were going to go out on the road and we wanted to tour behind a record. There was no time to make a whole new album and make the start of the tour.”
