The Rolling Stones - Between the Buttons (1986) Retail CD
'Between The Buttons' is a little lighter and possibly a little more uneven than the Stones previous album 'Aftermath'. However it still contains some very inspired moments although its style is less than typical for the Stones.
'Between The Buttons' fits very well into the timeframe it was recorded (late 1966) as its musical direction is quite typical for a number of groups from around that time (for example The Kinks). There is a certain vaudeville influence on one or two of the songs as well as a real Old English flavour to virtually all of the songs.
On the whole the songs work extremelymore… well with Brian Jones once again making his mark playing some unusual instruments. I particuarly love his accordian playing on the waltz influenced 'Back Street Girl'. It's a little like 'Lady Jane' with its slight aristocratic associations. 'Yesterday's Papers', 'Connection' and 'Who's Been Sleeping Here? are all great - the latter featuring a cast of characters is very reminiscent of Bob Dylan's in its style of writing. 'She Smiled Sweetly' is another unusual sounding song - this time resembling a church sermon.
The only times the album sounds less convincing is when the Stones put more emphasis on the vaudevillian influences ('Cool Carm And Collected' and 'Something Happened To Me Yesterday') yet these songs are still very enjoyable.
'Between The Buttons' is a long way from the Stones more celebrated style of music yet it contains a number of real treasures. It's just a shame the Stones today seem to neglect so much this rich part of their musical legacy.
