'Let It Bleed' (1969)
The Stones luxuriate in darkness and dread, as if they always knew flower power was a scam. If you're taking just one Stones album to that moon colony, let it be this.
Key Track: "Gimme Shelter," a portrait of Sixties turmoil that Keith wrote in 20 minutes.
Best Mick Moment: His crazed whoops on "Let It Bleed," dripping bodily fluids all over Charlie Watts' drums.
Honky Tonk Man: "You Got the Silver" was Keith's first lead vocal on a Stones LP.
