Keith Richards - Talk Is Cheap (30th Anniversary Editions)

Project Title: Talk Is Cheap (30th Anniversary)
Artist: Keith Richards
Medium: Super Deluxe and Deluxe Boxes, Vinyl, CD and Digital
Label: Mindless Records, LLC under license to BMG Rights Management (US) LLC
Release Date: March 29, 2019
My Role: Reissue Producer

About: In 1988, on a break from his band the Rolling Stones, Keith Richards released his first ever solo album, Talk Is Cheap. This universally respected debut is an eleven track masterclass in everything that’s good about rock ‘n roll and features guest appearances from an all-star cast including Sarah Dash, Bootsy Collins, Maceo Parker, the Memphis Horns, Patti Sciafia and Mick Taylor.

Remastered from the original tapes by Richards' collaborator, Steve Jordan, the album's joyous swagger is re-energised and permeates through each and every song.

Talk Is Cheap sounds as good today as it did thirty years ago; in Keith’s words: “As fresh as the day it was made.”
