Bitch (2009 Mix)
Label: Polydor Records
This 1971 tour de force is one of the very best records of the '70s. Working from familiarly bluesy territory, the boys add country honk depression, honing the trademark combination of huckster cynicism and sonic authenticity that marks their best work. The ideas presented on Sticky Fingers were fleshed out and perfected on Exile On Main St. The Super Deluxe version contains many previously unreleased outtakes, demos and live cuts. The rowdy and rambunctious "Brown Sugar" featuring mighty Eric Clapton on slide guitar just may be better than the officially released version.
