Product Description

Live Licks' incorporates all the best live moments from The Rolling Stones record breaking `Licks' tour of 2002/2003. Featuring loads of their classic tracks like `Brown Sugar' and `Paint It Black' as well as less well known (and rarely played live) tunes like `Rocks Off' and `Beast Of Burden', this is the ultimate document from one of the best live bands around. Explicit cover.

Amazon.com

The Rolling Stones have built themselves a fine conundrum with this double-disc anthology culled from performances on their 40th Anniversary tour of 2002-03, releasing arguably their most comprehensive and compelling live recording at a moment in history when it seems to matter least. The Stones' by now overwhelming spate of live albums has consistently been the most disappointing part of their considerable oeuvre, but the band--particularly the chunky/bluesy twin guitar locomotion of Keith Richards and Ron Wood--are in a form here that rivals the halcyon touring behind Sticky Fingers and Exile on Main Street. Befitting this tour's anniversary aims, they tackle material that ranges from their original Brit Invasion roots ("Satisfaction," "Paint It Black") through 70's superstardom (with Sheryl Crow guesting on "Honky Tonky Women") and a middle-age that was anything but staid. Disc two is largely given over to paying energetic, loving tribute to roots heroes like B.B. King ("Rock Me, Baby"), Otis Redding ("That's How Strong My Love Is") and even Hoagy Carmichael (Richards' raggedly sweet "The Nearness of You"), concluding the show with Mick Jagger's voice triumphantly being joined by soul legend Solomon Burke on a buoyant, gospel-fervent version of his "Everybody Needs Somebody to Love." --Jerry McCulley

So far, the reviews seem to divide between people angry about Live Licks, and people angry about the people who don't like it. Let's try to reason together, folks.

What do people want from a 21st Century live Rolling Stones CD? Some folks want the Stones to dig into their treasure trove of back catalog for great songs that haven't been released live before. Some want the Stones to dig into their R&B roots for the old blues and soul songs that they started their career covering. Some will not be satisfied without hearing Stones classics. Of course, we all want the geezers to defy all odds and continue to care. Despite the whining from some quarters, all of the above goals are addressed.

In a solid programming decision, there is one 11-song disc of all classics (or overdone warhorses, depending on your viewpoint) - and a second 13-song disc devoid of same, with lots of really well-chosen stuff we've never heard the Stones do live. If you do want the classics, they are well-performed and recorded here. For those who can't believe that they are recording these songs again, you can buy Live Licks for $12 if you try (I got mine at a retail store for $11.99, and some Amazon vendors are also selling it around that price) - even if only one of these two discs appeals to you, is $12 out of line for well-recorded, energetic performances of music this good? OK, I understand the feeling behind "Jeez, do we really need another version of Honky Tonk Woman?" So toss disc 1 if you feel that way, and you still have disc 2 which starts out with terrific performances of "Neighbors," "Monkey Man," "Rocks Off," and "Can't You Hear Me Knocking." I didn't ever expect to hear "Knocking" from a post-Mick Taylor Stones - and they absolutely nail it.

While I agree with some of the criticim regarding the editing of this double disk, the sound is excellent and the performances are very solid. This CD is very representative of the Stones live sound and is a good listen. I've been a Stones fan all my life, I have every one of their albums, and I'm happy to add this CD to my collection. The first disk covers a lot of ground that's already been covered on other Stones live disks but the second disk especially will make a nice addition to any Stones/music collection.

Format: Audio CD
Love the music, BUT here's where I get really mad. By their own stats included in the CD booklet, the Stones played 116 shows and performed 2301 songs. Do the maths: an average of 4 mins per song and you have 9,204 minutes of recordings but, on 2 CDs that are capable of 150 mins of music, we get only 49 mins on CD1 and 60 minutes on CD2, a total of 109 minutes. Like the other reviewer, I reckon I feel cheated as well but for a totally different reason. I was so lucky to see a "Let It Bleed" show in Melbourne Australia which included a blistering "Midnight Rambler" and one of the best performances of "Tumbling Dice" I have ever seen or heard. Where are they? Where is "Jumping Jack Flash?" I cannot believe that out of all the performances, enough songs to fill 2 CD's could not be found......NOT GOOD ENOUGH, EMI/Virgin!!!! In an era when you are fighting off the downloaders and P2P sites around the world, you end up treating your legitimate long-standing purchasers (40 yrs of record & CD buying here) in such a cynical fashion. I still love the music, but call me greedy, I do believe you could have delivered more.

Live Licks is such a nice live record. The first CD covers most of the Stones' classic (Brown Sugar, Start Me Up, You can't always get what you want, Gimmer HSelter, Honky Tonk Women, Paint it Black). And that's great stuff. But the second CD is even better. This is a bunch of sings that were NEVER previously recorded live! And some of them are very very good (Monkey Man originally recorded in Let it Bleed, 1969; or can't you hear me knocking from Sticky Fingers, 1971).

Best song is Keith's cover of Hoagy Carmichael's The Nearness of You--a song that he perfomed several times during the licks tour (Paris, Toronto, etc).

This live cd is a must-have for all those who went to see the Stones live and for all those who have never seen them (and might not get a chance to see them in the future).

Not a criticism, since you can't play the DVD's on your CD player, but for those wondering, if you already have the "Four Flicks" DVD set, you have all the songs represented here.

I have seen the Stones live dating back to '73. The band has been a 1 guitar band since '75 and it sounds like it on this Cd.

Twangy sound and edited songs. I know they are still Rolling but why not capitalize on some of their live recordings from the American tour from '72 or European tour of '73. Do yourself a favor..get yourself an ebay account and bid on the 2 Cd Brussels Affair bootleg of their '73 performance. You will never listen to the 'new' live Licks stuff again.

Let me start by stating the obvious--I am a Rolling Stones fan. That being said, this CD is bad. I mean Jordan with the Wizards bad--Santo with the White Sox bad--Ron Wood with the Stones bad (just kidding...sort of). Yeah,ok there are some gems on disc two but was there a need for disc one? No, no, no and no. If that is the best they can come up with after a year-plus of touring, I must have not been paying attention the last three times I saw them, because I actually thought they sounded great. The four-DVD set (minus MSG)--outstanding. The live reviews--fantastic. WHAT HAPPENED?? Ronnie, put the cigarette down and play something--I mean something good. Keith, pick up said cigarette and stop yourself. I feel cheated after listening to this disc. What has the Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the World come to--putting out even worse versions of the tired retreads they have put out 10 times before. Ugh. Crank up Get Yer Ya Ya's Out and save yourself the heartache of hearing a great band jump the shark.
