The Rolling Stones ! Noone expected something sounding so good that year, new british bands and sounds were assaulting the so called dinosaurs of rock. With A single like Start me Up (with its killer riff) they proved it they still got it, they were able to compete with the new energy young groups and singers - this make you smile, after 40 years of stones still touring (thinking to the few kids of the 80's still around nowadays - 2019) , but at the time punk and new wave were the answer to the old ones. The lp is great, one rock side, and one slow. Perfectly balanced between rock, dance, blues, classic soul (Worried about you is one of the greatest rnb tracks by the band) and a gem that stil is not able to be classified in any genre of music : the song is "HEAVEN" ( Please if you're sure tell me which kind of music is this one). They touch every kind of rock (from blues - Black Limousine to dance rock - Slave, a slowdancepsychoticrock jam with a great sax solo by mr Sonny Rollins, who even plays in the strong rock song called Neighbours). This is one of the last Lp reaching n.1 at the topten in the States. As piano players they got the creme: sixth Stone Ian Styewart always at his seat, Nicky Hopkins, Billy Preston and ... Mick Taylor who played guitars on the first versions of Tops and Waiting on a friend (way back in 1972 - with his guitars traces used for the official 1981 versions). A great LP. They toured the States and Europe with great success in 1981 and 1982. After that tour, stones fans had to wait 7 years before having the band on tour yet, but that's another Lp and another story.

I saw that one of the "Tattoo You" pressings has a poster. Does this one?

Definitely one of the great Stones albums. All tracks are solid, but Slave and Waiting On A Friend are masterpieces. I really appreciate the track layout with the rockers on the A side and the softer tracks on the B side.
What really makes this album however is Sonny Rollins' sax on Slave, Neighbors and Waiting On A Friend.

"Slave" makes this album, and it even has "Start Me Up".

First pressings were mastered by Robert Ludwig at Masterdisk. Look for the "RL" in the deadwax for verification.
