I bet it hasn't got C**ksucker Blues included?. I read in Record Collector magazine about 25 years ago that C**ksucker Blues was briefly included in a W.German Rolling Stones release sometime back in the late 1980s or early 1990s but it was never released officially in the UK well I don't think it ever was?.

C**ksucker Blues is Mick only singing with an acoustic guitar I believe I've never heard it.

Nai you would know more about C**ksucker Blues I presume?.

I don't think they go that far up to the time it was made. They are just the mono releases of the albums and comps. So doesn't have Andrews Blues etc either.

I believe Decca reminded Mick & Keith in 1969/70 that they Decca were owed one more single from the band so Mick gave them C**ksucker Blues knowing it would never be released and a two finger salute 'up yours' to the record company.

Nai will know more about the background behind C**ksucker Blues...

Hey Stones dudes I saw a interesting Keith Richards cd on Friday just gone and I bought it (bad move guys) anyway it features a nice front cover picture of Keith circa 1972/73 on the front although it claims to be from a radio broadcast from 1981 but leaving that minor quibble aside quite frankly it's a pile of horse s**t!!. Ok the dude who's singing sounds a bit like Keith but there's NO guitar on the cd at all (short changed) and only features this 'Keith' dude singing solo accompanied on a solitary PIANO on every track for f**k sake plus at £14 or $20 bucks it's a f**king rip off!!.

E-Z, I think this was originally a bootleg, I have similar where keef is at the old 'joanna'.. from 1992,he sings Blue Moon, True Love Ways, We Had It All etc... Quite crap is not the word... saw the Xpensive Winos, they were very good.. but the ultimate wingman band live was the New Barbarians, saw them support Led Zep in 1979,Stanley Clarke, Zigaboo, Ron, Keith and Bobby Keyes and Ian Mclagan. No substances for that gig other than a few cans of pre- gig Colt 45 beer.

As regards the 'knobsucker Blues'... the past posts are correct, but I wonder was Sir Edward Lewis as bad as the Stones made out? Reading and watching what The Moody Blues have said, Decca bent over backwards to help them with outlandish and as yet uncharted projects... and it was the Moodies that turned the Stones onto pill popping and drugs etc!
Maybe Sir Edward did choke on his Havana when hearing a leary Mick declaring a cops truncheon was anally too tight!
But the gaff on Albert Embankment got their own back, releasing 'Stone Age' compilation parallel to the release of Sticky Fingers... which enraged the Stones to take out a full page advert in NME, declaring it cheap, substandard and released without the bands permission.
Plus the Decca gang tried to damage the release of Brown Sugar, by releasing an EP of the earlier banned single, Street Fighting Man b/w Surprise Surprise and a speedy demo cut of Everybody Needs...
Loog can be blamed for the disastrous signing with Allen Klein, The Beatles got bit by the ABKCO bug also... Still to this today the Klein dynasty get a cut of Jagger, Richard song rights and they clung dearly onto those Mussel Shoals sessions which appear on many compilations. Was GRR! the first album to incorporate songs from both camps?
Anyroad, "Dicksucker Blues" remains legendary and I have it on brown 7" and a red 12" with Brown Sugar featuring Clapton and Kooper.

I did read years ago in Record Collector magazine as you point out Nai the reason why Allen Klein was able to release Brown Sugar & Wild Horses on the Decca or London record labels even though the boys put those two tracks out on the Sticky Fingers album on Rolling Stones records.

I always fancied getting my hands on that Stone Age vinyl album but I never saw it in any second hand record shops around London over the last 40 odd years.

The Mrs has told me several times down the years that whenever Brown Sugar was played at parties back in the 1970s EVERYONE would be up dancing!!.

Regarding the so called Keith Richards cd I mite have known it was a load of horse s**t but thought about it for an hour and decided to go for it which wouldn't have been so bad if Keith had been playing his usual Telecaster guitar and singing but to be playing a ruddy Joanna!! (that's London cockney talk for a piano for our American cousins). The song titles were very suspect as well except for Fats Dominos Blue Monday & Jerry Lee Lewis Whole Lotta Shakin' (Going On) with two versions of a song called Apartment No.9 as well as several other silly song titles.

Yeah the two Ronnie Wood New Barbarians cds I bought maybe 15-20 years ago the first is the best with Ronnie & Keith as it's more rock orientated the second was more funk/jazz rock from memory with Stanley Clarke on bass and Billy Cobham on drums.
