THE ROLLING STONES / Stripped (1995)

Like the title suggests, this is the Strolling Bones stripped of their stadium rock star personas in favour of smaller, more intimate venues; there are also a few live studio sessions with no overdubs.  It’s a clever way to earn some cash without having to write an entire album but all cynicism aside it’s a welcome release that adds some new tracks alongside acoustic versions of older, quieter tracks that don’t often get attention on the more bombastic live releases.  It's not perfect but it filled a hole adequately.

Songs of Note: Angie; Wild Horses

3½ clothed rockers out of 5
