Keith Richards to release a 30th Anniversary edition of Talk Is Cheap

Keith Richards will mark the 30th anniversary of the release of his debut solo album ‘Talk Is Cheap’ with an expanded edition in April.

The new 2019 version of ‘Talk Is Cheap’ will be a six-disc box with a stack of accessories including an extra six never-before released tracks.

“This album holds up,“ Keith Richards says. “I’ve been listening to it and not through the mists of nostalgia either because it doesn’t affect me that way. This is more than the sum of its parts. I really admire it. We were having fun and you can hear it.”

Talk Is Cheap expanded edition

• In 1988, on a break from his band the Rolling Stones, Keith Richards released his first ever solo album, Talk Is Cheap. This universally respected debut is an eleven track masterclass in everything that’s good about rock ‘n roll and features guest appearances from an all-star cast including Sarah Dash, Bootsy Collins, Maceo Parker, the Memphis Horns, Patti Sciafia and Mick Taylor.

• Remastered from the original tapes by Richards’ collaborator, Steve Jordan, the album’s joyous swagger is re-energised and permeates through each and every song. Talk Is Cheap sounds as good today as it did thirty years ago; in Keith’s words: “As fresh as the day it was made.”
