“You’ve got Gimme Shelter, Midnight Rambler, You Can’t Always Get What You Want, Let It Bleed – so many great songs, and Keith Richards is unbelievable on all of them.
“I love the way he recorded his acoustics sometimes to make them sound like electrics. You listen to these songs, and you just can’t tell what’s electric and what’s acoustic. Plus he was exploring different tunings, which gave some of the songs interesting textures. He doesn’t just give you one sound or one style; he’s always changing it up.
“It’s more of a rock album than what they did before, but the blues element is really strong – that's what Keith came up playing, of course. His guitar work on Love In Vain is incredibly lyrical.”
