The Rolling Stones Release 'No Security'
No Security is a live album by The Rolling Stones and was released in 1998.
Recorded over the course of the lengthy 1997–1998 worldwide Bridges to Babylon Tour, it is the band's sixth official full-length live release.
Because of the risk of repeating songs recently covered on "Still Life" (American Concert 1981) and Flashpoint, The Stones carefully chose songs that had either never been on one of their live releases or had not appeared on a live album for a long time. Of the major hits, "The Last Time", "Respectable", and "Waiting On A Friend" are here, as well as standout album cuts such as "Gimme Shelter", "Sister Morphine", and "Memory Motel". In addition to four tracks from the recent Bridges to Babylon, special guests Taj Mahal and Dave Matthews are featured on No Security.
The album was released in November 1998 and in support of it the band embarked on another tour. The No Security Tour was an arenas-only tour, crossing North America for 34 shows at somewhat smaller venues.
No Security peaked at number 67 on the UK albums chart and at number 34 on the U.S. albums chart. It failed to achieve U.S gold record status, but it sold over 300,000 copies.
The line "no security" appears in the song, "One Hit To The Body" on the Dirty Work album. "It's one shot when you love me, one shot when you leave me, I don't need no security, I just need me some peace."
But what's most impressive is the consistency with which the rhythm section, ever mindful of the groove fundamentals, cranks it up. The elemental No Security kind of makes you wonder whether the Stones shouldn't reverse their recent strategy and hit the stage first.
