Let It Bleed by The Rolling Stones ranked # 32 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums list.
Let It Bleed by The Rolling Stones was released in 1969. The follow
up to 1968's Beggars Banquet, it appeared concurrently with the
band's first American tour in three years.
Brian Jones performs on two tracks, "Midnight Rambler" and "You Got
The Silver;" his replacement Mick Taylor also plays on two tracks,
"Country Honk" and "Live With Me." Richards, who had already shared
vocal duties with Mick Jagger on a handful of songs sang his first
solo lead vocal on a Rolling Stones recording with "You Got the Silver."
Recorded under trying circumstance owing to the band having reached
the final impasse with Jones, the album has been called a great
summing up of the dark underbelly of the 1960s, its seamy side
touched upon very rarely in the pop music of the decade.
In addition to being one of their all-time classics, Bleed is the
second of the Stones' run of four studio LPs that are generally
regarded as among their greatest achievements artistically, equalled
only by the best of their great 45s from that decade. The other three
albums are Beggars Banquet (1968), Sticky Fingers (1971), and Exile
on Main Street (1972).
Released in December, Let It Bleed reached #1 in the UK (temporarily
knocking The Beatles' Abbey Road out of the top slot) and #3 in the
US where it eventually went double platinum. The album was also
