Sticky Fingers (album dei Rolling Stones del 1971)

STICKY FINGERS è uno degli album più acclamati della storia della musica e da quell’anno di grazia della sua pubblicazione, il 1971, si è conservato come il miglior vino.

La sua apertura è affidata all’iconica Brown sugar, con gli Stones ad ironizzare tra zucchero di canna, una donna di colore e una particolare eroina, sfoggia Ian Stewart al piano e uno sgargiante sax di Bobby Keys più l’immortale intro di Keith Richards. Sway sciorina blues ed un Mick Taylor da grande assolo alla chitarra, il resto lo mettono cori ipnotici e e i tasti di Nicky Hopkins. Wild horses è un affranto e malinconico classico dal profumo country. Can’t you hear me knocking scatena la potenza di un blues elettrico colmo di congas, sax e un organo hammond suonato da Billy Preston. You gotta move è un brano evangelico della tradizione afroamericana arricchito da chitarre distorte. La travolgente Bitch scatena chiunque ami il ritmo associato alla musica con i fiati sugli scudi e Charlie Watts che picchia in percussione. l got the blues mette in luce uno splendido hammond. Sister morphine è il desiderio di chi degente in un letto d’ospedale invoca le sorelle cocaina e morfina. La droga si interseca prepotente in Dead flowers nonostante l’allegro motivo, tra donne e amici, trasandato. Chiude la maestosa Moonlight mile, con le sue atmosfere magiche e acustiche intrise di malinconia e riflessione. Questa canzone, non la sola degli Stones, divenne il titolo di un film nel 2002 e viene intonata in una scena da un juke-box.

In definitiva un album sempre verde, che al blues immenso del gruppo innesca country, ballata, rock tradizionale e duro, ma stavolta l’ironia di Richards & co. si riempie di inquietudine e rimpianto. Tra i tanti ed eccezionali musicisti chiamati a creare questo capolavoro figura anche Paul Buckmaster, che realizza parti orchestrali bellissime per Sway e Moonlight mile, mentre Ry Coder e la sua chitarra distorta lasciano il segno in Sister morphine. Produce Jimmy Miller.
