New Stones album: giving it a miss, for now

As expected, following Monday’s release of Shine A Light, the new Stones double CD, you simply can’t escape the Glimmer Twins: they’re all over the airwaves and the High Street.


As always when you get a new Stones product, Jagger& Co are dominating the media agenda and on this occasion they’re aided and abetted by the powerful Scorsese publicity machine.


I’ll be attentively recording/watching the promo, Rolling Stones: Shine A Light Movie Special on ITV1 at five past midnight on Saturday/Sunday night.


But I think I’ll give the new album a miss, even at the £10 supermarket price.  I know from experience that it’ll be available at £5 in six months time.  There’s nothing on the new release shouting “buy me, now”.  And I’ve already got eight official live Stones albums – more than enough.
