Let It Bleed (Mono) (1969)

The album that ushered in the end of the sixties. Let It Bleed has the stink of death and mayhem about it, Brian Jones became the first rock and roll casualty months before this record's release, and the Altamont tragedy was just round the corner. The age of innocence and optimism was over, the dark smack and coke addled 70s started here. But what an album! Gimme Shelter, You Can't Always Get What You Want, Monkey Man and Keith Richards' first proper solo outing, You Got The Silver (a version with Jagger singing lead is included here). The Stones' bad boy image was turned up a few notches on this one, songs of impending disaster, serial killers, disfunctionality, damaged people and one of the greatest rock records of all time. This is dark stuff, but it's quite a ride.
