Rolling Stones Release 'Live Licks'
Live Licks is a double live album by The Rolling Stones and was released in 2004.
Coming six years after No Security, this seventh official Rolling Stones full-length live release captures performances from the band's year-long 2002–2003 Licks Tour in support of their career-spanning retrospective Forty Licks.
Of the special guests taking part, Sheryl Crow appears on "Honky Tonk Women", while Solomon Burke sings on his own "Everybody Needs Somebody to Love", which The Rolling Stones originally covered on The Rolling Stones No. 2 in 1965.
The Rolling Stones released two subtly different versions of cover art for Live Licks. While both feature the Rolling Stones logo's tongue in a very suggestive context, the British version features the woman without her bikini top.
Live Licks peaking at #38 in the UK and #50 in the US, though it became a gold record.
Not their best. It’s now more than seven years since The Stones last studio album and, since 1997’s underwhelming 'Bridges To Babylon', they’ve fashioned themselves into something resembling a mobile theme park. A spectacularly successful one, at that. Rather in the way that no childhood these days is complete without a visit to Legoland, seeing The Stones live in the flesh has become one of those must-do-once experiences for grown-up children.
