The Rolling Stones - let it bleed

The eighth Rolling Stones album from 1969, the last to feature Brian Jones but also featuring a cake on its cover made by Delia Smith no less! "Let it bleed" is one of the higher ranked Stones album and suits the dark end of the 60s in tone and feel. Some of its tracks are among the Stones' best like the powerful "Gimmie shelter" and the epic "You can't always get what you want".

After years of fantasy this brings us reality with a bump. It can jar, it can delight. Its harder than earlier records and darker. The party was over, the 70s were about to begin. We may have lost the Summer of Love but we would get laser beams.
