  1. That was a great listen. Engaging and entertaining This was the first Stones album I ever bought so it’ll always have a place in my heart even while I can readily admit it’s a mixed bag. I personally think the title track is a great Stones deep cut. One nitpick – Jimmy Page was in the middle of his most active period post Zep between the two Firm albums and Outrider. Any of those three albums would be right in the wield house of this podcast. Keep up the good work.
