Listen to The Rolling Stones Perform Songs from <i>Sticky Fingers</i>, Released on This Day in 1971

One of The Rolling Stones’ best LPs, Sticky Fingers, is celebrating its 48th anniversary today (April 23). It was the first release on the band’s own Rolling Stones Records and the first full album contribution from guitarist Mick Taylor, who also performed on another undisputed Stones classic Exile on Main St. Read our feature on Taylor, titled “The Stone Who Rolled Away,” about his time with the Stones—arguably his and the band’s musical golden era.

Back in 2012, Paste placed seven Sticky Fingers tracks on our list of 50 best Rolling Stones songs: “Bitch,” “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking,” “Sway,” “Wild Horses,” “Moonlight Mile,” “Brown Sugar” and “Dead Flowers.”

During the band’s Steel Wheels/Urban Jungle Tour in 1989, they performed at Toronto’s CNE Stadium, where they played several Sticky Fingers cuts, including “Bitch” and “Dead Flowers.” Listen to both tracks performed live in 1989 below.
