The X-pensive Winos

I've wanted to post this stuff for awhile, but just never seemed to get around to it.
After the Rolling Stones finished the "Dirty Work" tour, Keith Richards was still eager to continue playing. He gathered some friends and recorded the tracks that would become "Talk is Cheap," his first solo album. Keith dubbed the collection of musicians The X-pensive Winos, and quickly scheduled some shows to promote the album. The next-to-last date on the mini tour was Dec. 15, 1988, at the Hollywood Palladium in Hollywood, CA. The show was recorded on audio and video, but was shelved for a couple of years. Finally, in late 1991, Keith decided to remix and release "Keith Richards and the X-pensive Winos, Live at the Hollywood Palladium."

The album, writes Kurt Loder in the liner notes, is "a novelty: A live concert document that's not about flash pots, light cues, high-tech synthware, sleek choreography or - God knows - spiffy clothes. It's about getting into music, and getting off on it."

The Winos: Waddy Wachtel, Steve Jordan, Charley Drayton, Ivan Neville, Sarah Dash, and Bobby Keys.
