The Rolling Stones - Still Life (1982)


Released in 1982


1. Intro
2. Under My Thumb
3. Let's Spend The Night Together
4. Shattered
5. Twenty Flight Rock
6. Going To A Go-Go
7. Let Me Go
8. Time Is On My Side
9. Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me)
10. Start Me Up
11. Satisfaction
12. Outro                                                                        

Not really the best of the any Stones live albums, to be honest.

There are many more superior live albums out there. With regard to the material on this album, the concert that most of it is derived from - Hampton Coliseum 1981 is now available in full concert for on the DVD/CD series From The Vault titled Hampton Coliseum 1981. On this you get the full concert and in vastly superior sound too. Yes, it is good to hear rarities like Twenty Flight Rock and Going To A Go Go and numbers like Under My Thumb, Shattered, Let Me Go and Time Is On My Side do not often get an outing. Good to hear them all here, of course, and great if you want a bite-sized bit of live Stones but there is much better available.

That said, it is still an invigorating enjoyable forty-five minutes or so of a listen.

I would recommend:-

1969 - Get Your Ya-Ya's Out
1971 - Sticky Fingers Deluxe Live From Leeds University
1973 - The Brussels Affair
1975 - L.A. Forum
1977 - Love You Live
1978 - Some Girls Live
1981 - Hampton Coliseum

These would serve the 1970-1981 period much better than this.
