A Stripped Companion

My friends, this is my FIVE HUNDREDTH POST.

As such, I thought it might be appropriate to dig around the back corners of my hard drive and see if I could find something kind of special to mark the occasion.

What I came up with is a Rolling Stones boot, known as the Stripped Companion. I’m sure I don’t need to tell you that Stripped was the Stones’ 1995 acoustic live album. This unofficial “companion” album is a compilation of outtakes, “B” sides, and a couple of other miscellaneous unplugged tracks, all from the 1993-1995 era. A listener review written on Bootleg Zone called the Companion disk “Amazing,” and said, “This is what boots should always do: Surpass the original.”

Recording info:

Congrats on your anniversary! I've been making this a regular stop for about a year. You've offered up some terrific music along the way (Zep series!, et al) and show no signs of tiring. Way to go.
