    I love Let It Bleed. "Gimmie Shelter" is right up there with "Gimme Danger" for being one the greatest songs of all time.

    I loved the cover art too. I was obsessed with it as a little girl.

    that run between Beggar's Banquet and Exile on Main St is fucking amazing. Throw in the fact that they released "Honky Tonk Women" and "Jumpin Jack Flash" as singles at the start of that run.. man

    I voted Sticky Fingers. Usually I answer Exile, but fuck it, there's not a wasted second on Sticky Fingers.

    Also during that era they released get your ya ya's out, one of the greatest live albums of all time, which by the way might have the greatest guitar solo ever put to wax - mick T. On sympathy

    Always thought it might be Lou Reed's since Warhol designed it, but turns out it was probably Joe Dallesandro, another Factory 'superstar'.

    Like Paul said, I don't know if it's the "best" but I think I prefer Between the Buttons overall. Exile is spectacular, Let it Bleed, Beggars and Sticky Fingers are all A+ albums, but Between the Buttons, for me, just has a slightly experimental bent to it that gets me every time. It's the one I most consistently listen to. Favorite song is from Exile though: Ventilator Blues.

    I voted Some Girls only because that '78 version of the King Biscuit Flower Hour was one of the best I ever owned......until that piece of shit Craig tapedeck in my '76 Duster swallowed it up.

    All fine choices, but as Let It Bleed includes "Monkey Man" Let it Bleed edges the others.

    I wound up voting for Exile even though I gave serious consideration to that whole suite of 4 late 60s/early 70s albums.

    Not one single vote for Beggar's Banquet though. That might be my second choice.

    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    Except the best Keith song is "Happy" and Keith played bass on "Live With Me", not Bill.

    Happy might be his best but silver is still my fav. I can't believe I never knew it was actually keith on bass. Thanks for the heads up. I also never realized that one of mick t.'s first contributions was on live with me

    Yeah I didnt' either until i read it the other day myself. I guess it explains why the bass line is so much more aggressive.

    That song is also the first one where Bobby Keys played sax with the stones.
