Four New Licks

The Rolling Stones


2002 celebrated the Fortieth Anniversary of the World's Greatest Rock'n Roll Band - The Rolling Stones. To commemorate the occasion and promote their Licks World Tour, the Rolling Stones released four new songs on Forty Licks, a comprehensive career compilation collection uniting ABKCO Records and Virgin Records together.

Thankfully, a promotional CD single, Four New Licks, was released featuring the four new Stones tracks. Considered rare and collectible, this cool item represents the first new Stones studio material in the new millennium.

"Don't Stop" is the Stones first studio single since 1998's "Saint Of Me". This up-tempo rocker turned up in their live set during their Licks World Tour. Ronnie Wood's stinging lead guitar lines give this quirky tune a bite at the bridge.

The Jagger-penned ballad, "Keys To Your Love", features a strong vocal delivered by the Head Stone. "Stealing My Heart" is a fast-paced garage-rock romp, proving the Stones can still pound out a gritty number.

"Losing My Touch" is vintage Keith Richards all the way. Aided by drummer Charlie Watts, Richards displays an aged maturity in this composition. He may be slowing down a bit, but Keef has his pulse on a what constitutes a future classic in-the-making.
