Editorial Reviews

Review

As we discovered in the pages of his autobiography LIFE, Keith Richards is proud, justifiably so, of his great band. No, not that one. The X-Pensive Winos, the group he formed in 1987 when the Rolling Stones were on hiatus. The band had an A-list lineup with Steve Jordan and Charlie Drayton sharing duties on drums and bass, Waddy Wachtel - the American Keith Richards - on guitar, Ivan Neville on keys and the Stones frequent collaborator Bobby Keyes on saxophone. Sarah Dash, one-time member of Labelle, shared lead vocals with Richards, who played guitar and fronted the band. Richards three albums on which the X-pensive Winos appear are now out of print, but some of their best tracks will be reissued November 2 on VINTAGE VINOS...another way to connect with what makes him so special. --Wall Street Journal

4.0 out of 5 stars It ain't the Stones, but it's pretty damn good November 2, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In conjunction with the publication of his autobiography, Keith Richards anthologizes the meager output of his band The X-Pensive Winos: two studio CDs he released in 1988 and 1992, and sandwiched between them a live date at the Hollywood Palladium from December of 1988 that came out as a CD in 1991. A handful of tracks are featured from each disc, and they're respectable choices.

Richards' most popular work as a solo performer appeared on "Talk Is Cheap," the first album, which relied on his legendary guitar and patented rasp of a voice. The big single, "Take It So Hard," reached number three on the charts. This and the other four songs that kick off "Vintage Vinos" are very Stones-like on the whole, except for the last cut. It's an exquisite Memphis Soul ballad called "Make No Mistake," propelled by a tight horn section. Keith's gravelly growl suits this material, both the raucous rock workouts and the ballad. The band, with Steve Jordan on drums, Ivan Neville on keyboards, and Waddy Wachtel on guitars, is top-notch.

The live cuts include a dub cover, "Too Rude," and three Stones covers: "Time Is on My Side," "Happy" (Richards' signature song), and "Connection." Labelle's Sarah Dash contributes both solo and backing vocals. Play 'em loud!

The next three tracks come from the second studio album, the more mellow and unjustly underappreciated "Main Offender." Chief among them is the single "Wicked as It Seems," which also charted at number three. The final two cuts are the pensive "Locked Away," from "Talk Is Cheap," and a brief rarity, "Hurricane," which is almost a throwaway. It features Keith accompanied by a couple of acoustic guitars.

All in all, a fine retrospective of Richards on his own, though if you're a real fan, you might want to consider getting the three individual CDs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Time is on his side November 4, 2010
Format:Audio CD
A good view of Keith's 2 studio albums and 1 live album. Some great guitar riffs, and Keith's rough vocals are second nature to Keith. Sarah Dash, formerly of Labelle, soars on lead vocals on a live version of Time Is On My Side, and compliments him well on Make No Mistake too. Wish they had included the live version of Gimme Shelter on this compilation. That was on the Eileen CD single. Rock Awhile from Talk Is Cheap should have been included too. Best off getting all 3 original albums, especially Talk Is Cheap and Live at the Hollywood Palladium. Released to coincide with his new book Life. Good to see Connection on here , a 1967 Stones album track that Keith brought back in his live sets, and another highlight on this collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars I didn't know November 29, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I honestly was not aware that Keith had solo work until I saw this on the Stones website. I just finished Keiths book and had looked up some of the songs on youtube. I haven't heard a song that me cry in a long time,and "The Worst" did it for me. Goes to show that commercial success doesnt count for anything,good music is good music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scorching January 22, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
Full disclosure: I usually find solo albums by the principals of legendary rock bands to be - at best - mediocre. At worst, a wincing embarrassment. That being said I passed over Keith Richard's X-pensive Winos excursions.

Don't get me wrong - I love Keith. As long as he's upright and playing guitar I will pay attention to the Rolling Stones, even if Mick is shadow of his former self, and the band has long since passed relevance as the Greatest Rock & Roll Band in the World. Keith lives, breaths, and embodies what I discovered rock & roll for. Like Lou Reed's Jenny, my life was saved by rock & roll. Keith's been there every step of the way for me.

As an introduction, Vintage Vinos is a welcome, gob-smacking, surprise. It snaps, crackles and pops with cajones and raw rock vitality. Lyrically, he's not kidding around. These are killer songs. Keith's craggy vocals match his face and guitar playing. The production is crisp and up front. No studio tomfoolery. No gussing-up.

Tight horns when necessary. Layers of guitar and cracking reggae & funk. Serious rock & roll. Even well known chestnuts like "Happy," "Connection" and "Time Is On My Side" get a kick in the impetus. This is more of a Rolling Stones record than the Stones themselves have produced in decades.

Now I'm going to order all the other Wino discs. Good on ya, Keith! Sorry I was late to the party.
