REVIEW:

This new release presents the Stones Dirty Work alternates and outtakes with lots of rough mixes from the 1985 sessions that originated that album. Dirty Work was a consistent deviation of the Stones standards as can be witnessed by hearing these sessions, however many fans considered the output still very much entertaining. One of the main inspiration here was a bit of a return to soul with Harlem Shuffle, but not only that, which was expanded in these sessions with many classic soul songs revisited. We do get the usual outtakes with no new song to mention, however the collection starts with a great version of  One Hit with Jagger driving vocals, while Harlem Shuffle features spoken words; Winning Ugly outtake features additional bass and Fight, Too Rude, Back To Zero, Had It With You and Dirty Work are some kind of early rehearsals all being first versions with early lyrics. Sleep Tonight is the basic track while Strictly Memphis is a well known outtake that together with What Am I Going To Do With Your Love featuring also vocals by guest Bobby Womack and Don Covay who were invited to the sessions when Jagger was out to promote his own album. Not just classic soul songs but also original compositions in that vein as well: check the soulful 11 minutes plus long ballad Talk Is Cheap by Keith Richards, whose title will be used for the man s first solo album three years later. What Am I Supposed To Do clocks in at 15.22 minutes offering a nice jam chocked full with feeling .I Want Nobody Else is named after the second verse of If I Can t Have You, Gregory Isaac classic hit. Audio quality is very good with great stereo separation, no significant some hiss is present on the rough alternate mixes. Disc Two presents more outtakes including the long jam Sending Out An Invitation and Disc Three is devoted to the tracks that surfaced not so long ago in the Foxes in the Boxes series. Packaging shows an alternate front cover shot similar to the original release.
