Eagle Rock Entertainment has officially announced that it will release on Blu-ray/2CD, as well as vinyl and DVD/2CD, The Rolling Stones: Bridges to Bremen. Street date is June 21.

Bridges to Bremen captures a complete show from the final leg of the Rolling Stones year-long tour in support of their Bridges to Babylon album, which achieved Platinum and Gold status in multiple markets upon the album’s original release in 1997.

Ever the innovators, The Bridges To Babylon Tour was one of firsts – the first time the band went on the road with a permanent, and now infamous, B-stage, and also the first time that fans could vote on the band’s website for a track they wanted to hear at the show – “Memory Motel” in the case of the Bremen fans, making each show on the tour unique.

Opening with “Satisfaction”, a snake-hipped Jagger, sporting a bright yellow shirt & scarf, is a streak of canary-colored lightning, while Keith prowls the stage in a tiger print duster coat. Lisa Fisher accompanies Jagger on vocals for a storming version of “Gimme Shelter”, and Bridges single “Saint of Me” receives a rousing welcome. By Stones standards, Bremen was an intimate show, a 40,000 fan-strong hot ticket, for which the band enthusiastically kicked out 155 minutes of unadulterated rock ‘n’ roll.

This concert film has been meticulously restored from the original masters, and the audio remixed and remastered from the live multitrack recordings. Four tracks from the band’s Soldier Field performances in Chicago are included as bonus features on all physical visual formats.

The release of Bridges To Bremen comes at a busy time for the band – Honk, a brand new Best Of compilation featuring 36 essential Stones tracks from 1971 to 2016’s Blue & Lonesome (with the deluxe also featuring 10 live tracks recorded at stadiums around the world) is released on April 19th by Polydor

Beggars Banquet has long been a landmark album in The Rolling Stones’ history, signalling the beginning of what is considered their most prolific album era as well as indicating the end of the original line up’s work together.

Recorded between March and July of 1968 at Olympic Sound Studios in London, mixed at Sunset Sound in Los Angeles, Beggars Banquet was the first Stones album produced by Jimmy Miller, and marks the start of what is considered their most prolific album era. Opening with the iconic hit “Sympathy For The Devil,” the album features many of The Stones’ most memorable tracks, including “Street Fighting Man,” “No Expectations,” and “Parachute Woman”. Beggars Banquet (50th Anniversary Edition) is housed in an overwrap of the “inoffensive” wedding invitation art, which was initially issued as a replacement cover when the original intended album art was rejected. The landmark album has been newly mastered by Grammy Award winning engineer Bob Ludwig and will be available on all formats.

They are unstoppable and their fans insatiable, so the show must go on! And while there is already so much archived Rolling Stones material, this bit, released in Autumn 2018, is definitely worth a listen. Recorded in November 1994 at the Joe Robbie Stadium in Miami, Voodoo Lounge Uncut documents the tour that followed the studio album Voodoo Lounge released in July that same year. By the book, unsurprising, but effective as always with the Jagger/Richards combination. The shows are outright outrageous and are filled with pure, hard-core rock’n’roll. It’s stripped bare, no frills, and it sounds loud and clear. Even for their hit songs that have been heard a million times such as Satisfaction, Sympathy For The Devil, Street Fighting Man, Start Me Up, It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll, Brown Sugar, Jumpin’ Jack Flash, Miss You and Honky Tonk Women, the Stones give it their all. They even invited three special guests to their electric fiesta: Sheryl Crow (Live With Me), Robert Cray (Stop Breakin’ Down Blues) and Bo Diddley (Who Do You Love?). Once again: it’s only rock’n’roll but we like it, we like it, yes we do!  –  Max Dembo

Yes, the grandfathers of Rock N Roll are still cool and determined to maintain their reputation. An enormous discography doesn’t stop the Stones from delighting their fans with some of their legendary live performances. From The Vault − San Jose 1999 is the last episode in their series of concerts during their 1999 No Security tour throughout the United States and Europe. Well accustomed to filling out stadiums, the band wanted this tour to target more reasonably sized venues: 15,000 people nonetheless… It had been almost 25 years since the English band had stopped in San Jose, as evidenced by the audience’s reaction. The crowd was boiling with excitement! Here, the Stones offer a large selection of their hit songs (Jumpin’ Jack Flash, Honky Tonk Woman, Paint It Black, It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll (But I Like It), Start Me Up, Brown Sugar, Sympathy for the Devil…), ranging from the 1960s to 1997 with Saint Of Me and Out Of Control from the album Bridges To Babylon. A tremendous batch!  – Clara Bismuth

“Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out! The Rolling Stones in Concert” holds the distinction of being the first live album by any artist to have reached #1 on the UK charts. Recorded Madison Square Garden in New York City on November 27 and 28, 1969, Ya-Ya’s is considered the Stones finest live album. This three-disc remastered Ya-Ya’s includes the original in all its gritty glory. Disc Two is a five-song EP from the same shows, with acoustic performances – ‘Prodigal Son’ and ‘You Gotta Move’ – from Richards and Jagger. The third disc is an unexpected treat: blistering sets by openers B.B. King plus Ike and Tina Turner (doing an outrageously steamy take on Otis Redding’s ‘I’ve Been Loving You Too Long’)”.

The Rolling Stones – Sticky Fingers (1971) [Japanese Limited SHM-SACD 2011 # UIGY-9066] {PS3 ISO + FLAC}

The Rolling Stones – Sticky Fingers (1971) [Japanese Limited SHM-SACD 2011 # UIGY-9066]
PS3 Rip | ISO | SACD DSD64 2.0 > 1-bit/2.8224 MHz | 40:15 minutes | Scans included | 1,87 GB
or FLAC(converted with foobar2000 to tracks) 24bit/88,2 kHz | Scans included | 960 MB

Pieced together from outtakes and much-labored-over songs, Sticky Fingers manages to have a loose, ramshackle ambience that belies both its origins and the dark undercurrents of the songs. It’s a weary, drug-laden album — well over half the songs explicitly mention drug use, while the others merely allude to it — that never fades away, but it barely keeps afloat. Apart from the classic opener, “Brown Sugar” (a gleeful tune about slavery, interracial sex, and lost virginity, not necessarily in that order), the long workout “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking” and the mean-spirited “Bitch,” Sticky Fingers is a slow, bluesy affair, with a few country touches thrown in for good measure. The laid-back tone of the album gives ample room for new lead guitarist Mick Taylor to stretch out, particularly on the extended coda of “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking.” But the key to the album isn’t the instrumental interplay — although that is terrific — it’s the utter weariness of the songs. “Wild Horses” is their first non-ironic stab at a country song, and it is a beautiful, heart-tugging masterpiece. Similarly, “I Got the Blues” is a ravished, late-night classic that ranks among their very best blues. “Sister Morphine” is a horrifying overdose tale, and “Moonlight Mile,” with Paul Buckmaster’s grandiose strings, is a perfect closure: sad, yearning, drug-addled, and beautiful. With its offhand mixture of decadence, roots music, and outright malevolence, Sticky Fingers set the tone for the rest of the decade for the Stones.

Reissued for its 50th anniversary, Satanic Majesties remains a singular entry in the Stones’ catalog. It is the strange result of a bizarre set of personal, professional, and cultural circumstances. This set is one of the more straightforward to explain, since it comprises the stereo and mono versions of the album, newly remastered by by Bob Ludwig at Gateway Mastering.

Recorded during their American tour in late 1969, and centered around live versions of material from the Beggars Banquet-Let It Bleed era. Often acclaimed as one of the top live rock albums of all time, its appeal has dimmed a little today. The live versions are reasonably different from the studio ones, but ultimately not as good, a notable exception being the long workout of “Midnight Rambler,” with extended harmonica solos and the unforgettable section where the pace slows to a bump-and-grind crawl. Some Stones aficionados, in fact, prefer a bootleg from the same tour (Liver Than You’ll Ever Be, to which this album was unleashed in response), or their amazing the-show-must-go-on performance in the jaws of hell at Altamont (preserved in the Gimme Shelter film). Fans that are unconcerned with picky comparisons such as these will still find Ya-Ya’s an outstanding album, and it’s certainly the Stones’ best official live recording.
