Released as a double album on vinyl and a single CD, the album was supported by the year-long worldwide Bridges to Babylon Tour that met with much success.
Unlike the prior several albums, which the production and songwriting team of vocalist Mick Jagger and guitarist Keith Richards had co-produced alongside a single producer, the group brought in an eclectic mix of superstar producers, including the Dust Brothers, Don Was, and Rob Fraboni among others. Similarly, a wide array of guest musicians appeared on each of the tracks alongside band members Jagger, Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts. The sprawling album features a wide range of genres, including the Stones-standard blues rock, sample-laden hip hop and rap.
The band was once again not on speaking terms during the recording of the album, with Jagger and Richards each recording their parts separately and rarely appearing in the studio together. They had, however, repaired their relationship well enough to embark on a wildly successful tour to support the album.
Voodoo Lounge. As their first new release under their new alliance with Virgin Records, it ended a five-year gap since their last studio album, Steel Wheels in Voodoo Lounge is also the band's first album without long-time bassist Bill Wyman.
He left the band in early , though the Stones did not formally announce the departure until In , the album was remastered and reissued by Universal Music. This album was released as a double album on vinyl and a single CD and cassette. Bass guitar was played by Darryl Jones, who would perform with the Stones in the studio and on tour as a contracted player.
Keyboards were provided by Chuck Leavell. Jones and Leavell, though not band members, would remain collaborators with the group for the next quarter century. Don Was was brought in to produce the album alongside Jagger and Richards. Steel Wheels. Steel Wheels is the 19th British and 21st American studio album by The Rolling Stones, released in , and the final album of new material the band would record for Columbia Records. Heralded as a major comeback upon its release, the project is notable for the patching up of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards' relationship, a reversion to a more classic style of music and the launching of the band's biggest world tour to date.
It is also long-time bassist Bill Wyman's final full-length studio album with the Stones, preceding the announcement of his departure in January Wyman's final tenure with the band would be on two studio tracks for 's Flashpoint.
It was also the first album not to feature former member and frequent contributor on piano Ian Stewart, who died shortly before the release of their previous album Dirty Work. It was produced by Richards and Jagger along with Chris Kimsey, who had previously produced 's Undercover.
Undercover is the 17th British and 19th American studio album by The Rolling Stones, released in After their preceding studio album, Tattoo You, which was mostly patched together from a selection of outtakes, Undercover was their first release of all new recordings in the s. In the pantheon of bad albums by great musicians, few are as shockingly, transcendently awful as the Rolling Stones' "Dirty Work.
It's almost inaccurate to call "Dirty Work" a Rolling Stones album, as it's well documented that no one cared about the band at this point. Jagger and Richards were barely speaking to each other, and Charlie Watts was struggling with addiction at the time and barely drummed on the album. The kinetic synergy that defined early classics such as "Let It Bleed" and "Sticky Fingers" is completely absent, giving the album a feel that's excessively slick and hollow, even by s' standards.
With its blending of acoustic and electric guitars for the main riff and lively vocal from Jagger, it has many of the signatures of their classic work. While the lyrics portray a doomed romance that just can't end, it's pretty apparent that the song is a veiled dig at Richards, who doesn't even play on the track Jimmy Page does, and contributes an outstanding solo to boot. The 'I can't clean you out of my veins' line may also be in reference to Richards' blood cleansing habit to deal with heroin addiction.
The rockers such as "Fight," "Hold Back," and "Winning Ugly" all seem to blend into each other, with Jagger screaming the vocals in an unaffected manner amidst some pretty anemic guitar work, a somnambulant rhythm section and a complete lack of melody. Then you have the gruesome reggae cover "Too Rude," with Jagger's borderline offensive Jamaican patois and none of the groove or punch you'd expect from the genre. The album actually does end on a surprisingly touching, sentimental note, as a hidden track pays tribute to the band's longtime keyboardist, Ian Stewart.
