Also, did I mention that Mick Taylor is featured? Mick Taylor!

Somewhat ironically a few of those live albums you mentioned arrived in the post today (Still Life, Stripped and No Security). I found them cheap and thought that it was time to plug the holes in my Rolling Stones collection.
"Stripped" is the best of those by far. The other two are routine Stones live albums. Not bad of course, but not outstanding either.
