Album 365: Day 87 - The Rolling Stones - Tattoo You

The Rolling Stone
Tattoo You

Favorite tracks: Start Me Up, Hang Fire, Slave
Sleeper tracks: Neighbours, Worried About You

I first listened to this record while sifting through my aunt Sue's record collection.  The first 4 songs are really killer Stones tunes.  "Slave" has some of the best sounding drums on any Rolling Stones album.  The songs were essentially a compilation of stuff from different years.  They wanted to get an album out for the upcoming tour.  The album is a half rock/half ballad layout and it doesn't really flow like a regular album.  As much as I hear "Start Me Up" on NFL broadcasts, I still think it's one of the best Stones tunes.

Sax by Sonny Rollins, keyboards by Billy Preston, backup vox by Pete Townshend.
