The 5lp box looks like an essential purchase. The last great Stones album?
40th anniversary remastered super deluxe 5lp boxset
includes 5 x 180g heavyweight vinyl. (lp1 brand new 2021 remaster of tattoo you, lp2 lost & found: 9 previously unreleased tracks, lp3, 4 & 5 still life: wembley stadium 1982) + 124 page book & lenticular artwork.
tattoo you celebrates 40 years with the release of a brand new deluxe remastered edition of the chart topping, multi platinum album. the super deluxe 5lp boxset includes the newly remastered version of tattoo you, lost & found, still life: wembley stadium 1982 and a 124 page book featuring over 200 rare photos from recording sessions & world tour + interviews with producer chris kimsey & photographer hubert kretzscmar. the package includes a special lenticular sleeve.
the lost & found disc contains no fewer than nine previously unreleased songs from the period of the album's original release, newly completed and enhanced with additional vocals and guitar by the band. among these, 'living in the heart of love' is a quintessential stones rock workout with all of the group on top form, complete with urgent guitar licks and fine piano detail.
other highlights of lost & found include a killer version of 'shame, shame, shame’, first recorded in 1963 by one of the band's blues heroes, jimmy reed; their reading of dobie gray's soul gem 'drift away'; and a fascinating reggae-tinged version of 'start me up’.
still life: wembley stadium 1982 is an unmissable memento of the band's london show in june of that year on the tattoo you tour. the mighty 26-track set is packed with stones mega-hits, including an opening 'under my thumb' and all-time greats such as 'let's spend the night together’, 'honky tonk women' and 'brown sugar’.
the wembley show has covers of the temptations' 'just my imagination,' eddie cochran's 'twenty flight rock,' the miracles' 'going to a go go' and early rock 'n' roller the big bopper's 'chantilly lace.' it also features early live workouts for tracks from the then-new tattoo you such as 'start me up’, 'neighbours’, 'little t&a' and 'hang fire’.
