Buried Treasures – Discover New Music – 4/11/11 – Rolling Stones 1989-1994 Edition

Today, it’s all about one of, if not THE greatest band EVER, The Rolling Stones.

Steel Wheels, their 1989 “comeback” record was released to lukewarm reviews. It’s a solid listen. My favorite track on the album is “Almost Hear You Sigh.” It was released as the third single and had moderate success on the charts. Overall, on Steel Wheels, Mick and Keith are at their strongest on the ballads. Also included here is the closing track, “Slipping Away,” sung by Mr. Keith Richards. It grows on you.

In sticking with the Stones (totally organic, I assure you – this was not planned), let’s move this over to Voodoo Lounge. 1994. “Thru And Thru.” It’s the second-to-last track. A brilliant song that never received its due. As with the Steel Wheels tracks above, give it some time to grow on you. Keith sings on this one as well. Oh, and then there’s “The Worst.” Yep, sung by Keith. There are some great live versions out there, but the video below is with Keith, Willie Nelson, and Sheryl Crow. Awesome. Last but not least, there’s “I Go Wild.”

Enjoy. Have a great week everyone.

    Like it or not, Voodoo Lounge is one of their best albums. The purists can argue otherwise. I personally felt like it was more of a comeback album then Steel Wheels. Voodoo Lounge took longer to put out then its predecessor.

    Please do more of these psosts.

    Voodoo Lounge is the better record. My only issue is it seemed there was too much filler. They could have shaved off a few songs and it would have felt more cohesive.

    Keith Richards is the man.

    @ALL KNOWING FORCE: Darius: I got Steel Wheels on cassette for Xmas. I didn’t understand b/c I used to listen to the Stones w/ my Dad. I wasn’t able to process why all the other songs weren’t on there! Then we got MTV and the album thing made sense.

    @ALL KNOWING FORCE: Darius: That track never jumped out at me. It’s a great album, though.

    @NoLo: Right on! I couldn’t agree more.
