Black and Blue CD


It's not on the top of anyone's Stones list, but this vastly underrated 70's release is the Stones at their loosest (and hence best). It was the end of a run of great releases, from Sticky Fingers through Exile on Main Street. And you can hear them stretching out into the reggae rhythms that enticed rich white Englishmen with their leisurely stomps and social politics. Out of 8 tracks, 5 are Stones classics, the remaining three better than anything else they did for most of the decade that followed.


1. Hot Stuff
2.Hand Of Fate
3. Cherry Oh Baby
4. Memory Motel
5. Hey Negrita
6. Melody
7. Fool To Cry
8. Crazy Mama
