4. Sway
5. Dead Flowers
6. Wild Horses
7. Sister Morphine
8. You Gotta Move
9. Bitch
10. Can't You Hear Me Knockin'
11. I Got The Blues
12. Moonlight Mile
13. Brown Sugar
14. Rock Me Baby
15. Jumpin' Jack Flash
16. I Can't Turn You Loose

An excellent, ballsy performance of the legendary album by The Stones, the only time they have done so. They do not play it quite in the original album order, however, moving a few things around. Brown Sugar comes at the end, for example. There are a few other non - Sticky Fingers tracks included at the beginning and end, including a magnificent, bluesy, horn-driven cover of Rock Me Baby. One of the real highlights of the album, despite not being a Sticky Fingers track. Check out that guitar solo, marvellous. This is The Stones playing the blues as they have always done so well.

It is a convincing performance, despite the time that has eclipsed between 1971 and 2015. Just check out the stunningly good take on Can't You Hear Me Knocking, which is breathtaking. The mournful Moonlight Mile is given a massive, powerful new life too. Very impressive, I must say. Just a superb performance. Just listen to the sombre Sister Morphine - very hard-hitting. I have always liked I Got The Blues and it is played here just as bluesily as it was back in 1971.

The sound is outstanding as well, very powerful, clear and bassy. I love them when they sound like that.
