After the Stones wore those pastel suits on the cover of Dirty Work in 1986, everyone figured they were finished. But Keith Richards formed the X-Pensive Winos and bashed out Talk Is Cheap, a solo album great enough to scare the Stones back together. This comp adds live romps through Keef-centric Stones classics like "Connection." The songs all fall into the "she's my little rock & roll" category or the "bitching about Mick" category. The bitchy ones are the keepers – especially "You Don't Move Me," a pitiless rant sung in a country-honk croak so hoarse not even Dylan would sign off on it. For Keef, that's a point of pride.

"I had the melody idea for 'Fantasy' and I was listening to the radio and heard 'Genius of Love,' and I hadn't heard it in a long time," Carey said. "It reminded me of growing up and listening to the radio and that feeling the song gave me seemed to go with the melody and basic idea I had for 'Fantasy.' I initially told [co-writer] Dave Hall about the idea, and we did it. We called up the Tom Tom Club and they were really into it."
