The album features iconic Stones tracks such as 'Tumblin' Dice'and 'All Down the Line' and has been touted by some as the band'sbest work. The recordings took place within the confides of KeithRichards rented French villa and was plagued by in-house conflictsand drug & drink abuse. It was also at a time when the bandwere steering clear of the British Government due to a spirallingtax bill and was just two years after founding bassist Brian Joneswas found motionless at the bottom of his swimming pool atCotchford Farm.
