About this album

Live at the Hollywood Palladium, December 15, 1988 is a live album by Keith Richards and was released in 1991 in the U.S. and early 1992 in the UK. Recorded during the brief American tour, the only leg of the shows, in support of Talk Is Cheap in late 1988, Richards is supported by a set of musicians and friends dubbed “The X-Pensive Winos”. The Winos included Richards, Waddy Wachtel, Steve Jordan, Charley Drayton, Ivan Neville and Sarah Dash. Longtime Rolling Stones contributor Bobby Keys also plays saxophone. The Hollywood Palladium was the same Sunset Strip theatre Richards was thrown off the stage of, in 1972, when he tried to join his idol Chuck Berry.

While Richards’ set during the tour was primarily comprised of material from his solo debut album- he played ten of the eleven songs from the record- he did include many of his Rolling Stones vocal highlights. Although “Happy”, “Connection” and “Too Rude” appear on the official release, “Before They Make Me Run” and “Little T&A” were part of the shows and are present on popular bootlegs like L.A. Connection. While Live at the Hollywood Palladium, December 15, 1988 does not include the full concert captured that evening, it does present “Time Is on My Side” sung by Sarah Dash. Unavailable is the Richards sung “I Wanna Be Your Man”- two unmistakable nods to the early days of the band he helped found in 1962.
