Made in the Shade, released in 1975, is the first official compilation album by The Rolling Stones during their Atlantic Records contract. It covers material from Sticky Fingers (1971), Exile on Main St. (1972), Goats Head Soup (1973) and It's Only Rock 'n' Roll (1974). The Stones had two previous "official" compilation albums on Decca Records, Big Hits (High Tide and Green Grass) in 1966 and Through The Past, Darkly (Big Hits Vol. 2) in 1969.
The Rolling Stones undoubtedly felt they had to do something about the bastard album hogging all that money during their current tour. The only exception is Bitch, that great appetite song which can’t be given justice without its almost Moroccan horn lines. Shade‘s selection is familiar enough. One re-exults in Keith’s trenchant autobiography, Happy, and rediscovers Heartbreaker as an anarchist masterpiece.
Japanese issue with obi & 4-page insert featuring lyrics in English & Japanese, liner notes in Japanese, and EMI ESS catalog images. Also came with blue printed inner sleeve & yellow Toshiba EMI advertisement.
