THE ROLLING STONES From the Vault: The Marquee Club Live in 1971 (Shock)

From the Vault: The Marquee Club Live in 1971 (Shock)

While the Beatles (with some class mostly) and Elvis Presley (rarely with any class) have been repackaged/reissued for decades now, it took the Rolling Stones an age to make good use of (or exploit fully, if you prefer) their legacy. Latterly they've been making up for lost time and this short set is one of the better examples, in part for what it's not: neither big nor spectacular. Sticky Fingers was about to be released, Mick Taylor was giving them sheer playing quality and this show in the tiny Marquee club offers little more than an excellent bar band-with-brass playing with pleasure, albeit with some glitter on M. Jagger. There are rarities - several versions of I Got the Blues – and a Top of the Pops throwaway but with cameras up close, a healthy looking Keith Richards, a pretty Taylor and the deadpan-as-hell rhythm section, you're going to get enough out ofMidnight RamblerBitch and a somewhat wonky Dead Flowers to keep you happy. BERNARD ZUEL
