During his down-time following the release of the Rolling Stones’ Dirty Work album in 1986, human riff Keith Richards assembled a side band, X-Pensive Winos, who would back the guitarist on his debut solo album, 1988’s Talk Is Cheap.
Richards and his band promoted the album with a 12 city US tour, stopping off at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles on December 15, 1988, for the trek’s penultimate gig. Much bootlegged, a recording of their set – which featured Stones’ classics Happy and Time Is On My Side alongside cuts from Talk Is Cheap – was released in 1991 [1992 in the UK] by Virgin Records. Now the concert is being made available for the first time as a limited edition box set.
Exclusive to the coming box set and digital formats are three previously unreleased tracks from the night, the Stones’ Little T&A (from Tattoo You), You Don’t Move Me from Talk Is Cheap, and the Lennon-McCartney penned hit I Wanna Be Your Man.
Set for release via BMG on November 13, the album comes as a special deluxe box set, presented in a matching folio, wrapped in a black cotton replica of the tour shirt sold that night, complete with a satin VIP pass on top. It includes an essay written by Rolling Stone’s David Fricke, and is available to pre-order now.
