Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards will reissue his 1991 concert album Live at the Hollywood Palladium as an expanded limited-edition box set on November 13.
The album documents a December 15, 1988, show that Richards played with his backing band The X-Pensive Winos at the Los Angeles venue during a brief tour in support of his debut solo album, Talk Is Cheap.
The album features renditions of most of Talk Is Cheap’s songs, as well as performances a few Rolling Stones tunes, including “Happy” and “Connection.” The box set contains a remastered version of the album on CD and two vinyl LPs, plus a 10-inch vinyl disc boasting three previously unreleased songs from the 1988 concert — The Rolling Stones’ “Little T&A,” the Stones-covered Beatles tune “I Wanna Be Your Man,” and the Talk Is Cheap track “You Don’t Move Me.”
The box set also features a DVD of the Live at the Hollywood Palladium concert film; a 40-page hardback book boasting a new interview with Richards and an essay by rock journalist David Fricke; press photos; and a variety of replica memorabilia, including a tour T-shirt, a handwritten set list, VIP and backstage passes, a custom guitar pick and more.
The X-Pensive Winos featured the main musicians who helped Richards record Talk Is Cheap — drummer Steven Jordan, guitarist Waddy Wachtel, bassist Charley Drayton, keyboardist Ivan Neville, backing singer Sarah Dash, and longtime Rolling Stones touring saxophonist Bobby Keys.
The reissue, which you can pre-order now, also will be available as a standalone CD, a two-LP set, a limited-edition red-vinyl double-LP package, and in digital formats. The digital version will include the three bonus tracks.
