Bridges to Babylon (Half Speed Master)The Rolling Stones
Double Heavyweight Vinyl. Remastered and Cut at Revelatory Half-Speed at Abbey Road Studios.
Originally issued in 1997, Bridges To Babylon made the Top 3 in the US and number 6 in the UK. The yearning and sinuous Anybody Seen My Baby? and the mean and moody Saint Of Me - both Top 30 hits in the UK - in particular, showed the band remained at the cutting edge. Energetic rockers Low Down and Too Tight repay further investigation as do the three tracks sung by Richards, in particular the closer How Can I Stop which features another jazz legend, Wayne Shorter, on saxophone.
