B&L is down to #2 in the UK with 69,911 copies sold, with 175,741 copies total after 2 weeks is already Top 30 on the Year To Date.
This must be their fastest selling studio album ever there, I can't think in any studio album selling so fast in Britain.

The album is in daily rotation here...multiple times a day.

I'm starting to feel that they went into the studio and their focus was this album and NOT a batch of originals.

I like it but, I thought I would hate it. Jagger's harp playing is fucking quality, the fucking business. I was blown away. I thought; Oh! no this will suck as I picked my copy up. But I get home and WOW! It blew me away. I'm not a Stones sychophant, so I don't usually rave about anything since Undercover, this really is quality.

Oh, now I've got to get that soon. I love Mick's harp playing! I only wish he played in more songs.

One thing that struck me today.

Including all their studio, live and compilation albums (but excluding the archive live releases like Leeds '82) this is only the third Stones album that was completely recorded in their home country.

The others were their debut album (both the UK and US versions) and 'Satanic Majesties'.

Even the 'Got live if you want it' live album from the '66 UK tour had some studio material recorded in the US.

Wasn't 'Beggars Banquet' completely recorded at Olympic?

More importantly, G - what do you think of the new album?

I just got it yesterday, played it about five times, I'm loving it. I've got a couple questions for you if you see this post, mate...

I'm digging the Stones doing it. Robert Plant sometimes gets on my nerves, whereas Mick never does.
