Rolling Stones - Sticky Fingers RIAA Certified Multi-Platinum! Click here to see this CD at!

By Steve Knopper

"Sister Morphine," the heart of guitarist Mick Taylor's first full studio album with the Stones, doesn't get the airplay of "Brown Sugar" or "Wild Horses." But it's one of the most vivid, horrifying songs about drug abuse ever recorded--as Mick Jagger sings "from my hospital bed," the ringing guitars of Taylor and Keith Richards build to full catharsis behind him. On that and lighter songs like the countryish "Dead Flowers" and the rocker "Bitch," Charlie Watts establishes himself as rock's prototypical drummer. He's creative and propulsive and knows how to swing, but he never overwhelms the song or the other Stones.

"Actually per the above review of Sticky Fingers, Mick Taylor did not play on the track Sister Morphine. Ry Cooder who also did the soundtrack for the Awesome80s movie Crossroads about a guitarist selling his soul to the devil played the slide guitar on Sister Morphine while Keith played acoustic guitar. But it's still a hell of an album, probably the best the Stones ever did and without a doubt one of the greatest rock albums by any band, ever."


"Simply one of the greatest albums by the Stones. I think it was their first release on their own record label???

Ths song "Sway" is one of the greatest rock songs ever - the guitar in the beginning (which I think is Taylor, not Jagger) still sends chills up my spine every time I listen to it. It's perfect.

Yes, you read correctly 'Taylor, not Jagger' - I don't even think Keith plays a note on this song! (Jagger and Richards weren't too friendly to each other during this time. )

Of course, it contains the classic "Brown Sugar", but I think "Can't you hear me knocking" is better - even though if is sounds like 2 different songs - I think this song was recorded at 2 different times/places and spliced together."
