Sticky Fingers was never meant to be the title. It’s just what we called it while we were working on it. Usually though, the working titles stick.
~Keith Richards 1971
While many hold their next album, Exile On Main St., as their zenith, Sticky Fingers, balancing on the knife edge between the 60s and 70s, remains their most coherent statement.

Jimmy Miller produced “The Rolling Stones” 4 best albums:
- Exile on Main St. (1972)
- Sticky Fingers (1971)
- Let It Bleed (1969)
- Beggars Banquet (1968)
He really connected with the band & Keith Richards in particular.
“It was really a gas to work with him. Jimmy Miller could turn the whole band on and make a nondescript number into something.”
Miller was a huge Stones fan before he started working with the band..
‘The night Jagger phoned I just knew he was gonna ask me to produce them. I glided over to his house on a cloud.’
Beggars Banquet is the seventh British and ninth American studio album The Rolling Stones. It was released 6th December 1968 by Decca Records in the United Kingdom and London Records in the United States. The album was a return to a more rootsy rock for the band after the psychedelic “experiment”, Their Satanic Majesties Request.
The Rolling Stones – No Expectations (live Hyde Park, 1969):
In 2003, the album was ranked number 57 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. In the same year the TV network VH1 named Beggars Banquet the 67th greatest album of all time.
“Rape, murder, it’s just a shot away, it’s just a shot away.”
Rolling Stones Let it Bleed 1969
Let It Bleed is the eighth British and tenth American album by The Rolling Stones, released 5th December 1969. Released shortly after the band’s 1969 American Tour, it is the last album by the band to feature Brian Jones as well as the first to feature Mick Taylor.

It is part of the holy quartet: Exile on Main St., Beggars Banquet, Let it Bleed and Sticky Fingers. Rightfully considered the best albums in The Rolling Stones’ discography.
December’s Children (And Everybody’s) is the fifth American studio album by The Rolling Stones, released in late 1965. Drawn largely from two days of sessions recorded in September to finish the British edition of Out of Our Heads and to record their new single—”Get Off of My Cloud”—December’s Children (And Everybody’s) also included tracks recorded as early as 1963.
