A deluxe edition of the 1973 album has now been released.
“That was ’73, the year Marley and the Wailers put out ‘Catch a Fire.’ That’s also the year the soundtrack of ‘The Harder They Come’ came out,” Richards said. “I remember being in Jamaica, there was a feeling in the air. Jamaica was starting to make a mark on the map. After the sessions, I just moved back and I stayed there for months.”
It spurred the No. 1 single “Angie,” and this time around, there are unreleased tunes, including new lyrics for “All the Rage,” a song Jagger started writing 47 years ago.
According to Richards, you don’t have to worry about Mick and the boys retiring anytime soon, as performing is “a habit” for them.
“I mean, that’s what we do. And also there’s that thing between us, like, ‘Who’s going to be the first one to get off the bus?’ You have to be kicked off or drop off, right?” Richards said. “So, it’s like that. I really can’t imagine doing anything else.”
