No. 88: ‘Make No Mistake’ – Top 100 Rolling Stones Songs
Keith Richards proved he could be an extremely convincing and soulful frontman on the stirring mid-tempo ballad ‘Make No Mistake,’ one of the highlights of his 1988 solo debut ‘Talk is Cheap.’
As the album’s title indicates, Richards had grown weary of the public war of words between him and temporarily estranged Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger, and assembled a tight band of “musician’s musicians” to help prove he too, could make it on his own.
Jagger’s solo work may have sold better, but Richards gets the nod in terms of overall quality and pleasant surprises, none more spectacular then how well he gets his (admittedly and charmingly ragged) Al Green moves on during this sultry romantic duet with Sarah Dash.
