THE ROLLING STONES / Stripped (1995)

Like the title suggests, it's 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 pairs some new tracks with acoustic versions of older, quieter tracks that don't often get attention on the more bombastic live releases. It's not a perfect album but it filled a hole adequately.

Songs of Note: Angie; Wild Horses

3½ clothed rockers out of 5
