Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 41/500!

The first studio album to be released following Brian Jones departure from the band and subsequent death, it includes his replacement, 20 year old guitarist Mick Taylor.

Like Beggars Banquet it was produced by Jimmy Miller and it’s also similar in that both sides of the LP open with two stone cold classics, “Gimme Shelter”, with Merry Clayton’s wonderful backing vocal, and “Midnight Rambler”, songs that have been a part of Stones live shows for the last four decades. In another similarity to the band’s previous studio album it also features a blues cover, this time, “Love in Vain”, written by the King of the Delta Blues Singers, Robert Johnson. The last track on the record is the ambitious and very different “You Can’t Always Get What You Want”. featuring the London Bach Choir arranged by Jack Nitzsche and Al Kooper, late of Blood Sweat & Tears on keyboards and French horn. And finally… the future queen of British TV cookery shows, Delia Smith, baked the cake on the front cover.

"...[S]ome of the songs are among their very best, especially 'Gimme Shelter,' with its shimmering guitar lines and apocalyptic lyrics; the harmonica-driven 'Midnight Rambler'; the druggy party ambience of the title track; and the stunning 'You Can't Always Get What You Want,' which was The Stones' 'Hey Jude' of sorts, with its epic structure, horns, philosophical lyrics, and swelling choral vocals. 'You Got the Silver' (Keith Richards' first lead vocal) and Robert Johnson's 'Love in Vain,' by contrast, were as close to the roots of acoustic down-home blues as The Stones ever got." - Richie Unterberger,

"This album made superstars of the group. Even with the first personnel change (Mick Taylor), the music soared to new heights. With all all-star line-up of session players, these nine songs include some unforgettable standards... Abkco’s re-mastering of Let it Bleed is triumphant. It is the epitome of prominent mixing and precise separation. The lower-end power of the mix (especially on the bass and drums) is powerful. The density of the instrumentation never overpowers the acoustic tonality of the guitars or piano. Jagger’s voice is ragged but clear. The sleeve and vinyl disc proclaim: This Record Should Be Played Loud. And when you do, Let It Bleed sounds even better." - Robbie Gerson,, 5 Stars!
