Opening with the epic “Undercover Of The Night”, every bit as political and experimental in sound and lyrics as “Sympathy For The Devil”, the album is the perfect balance of styles the band love to play.

From the raunchy, fast pace of “She Was Hot”, to the Chuck Berry throwback “Wanna Hold You”, and the seductive Jagger/ Richards/ Wood penned “Pretty Beat Up”, the eclectic album has a savage rawness.

The band welcomed some new collaborators on Undercover  including Jamaican reggae stars, Sly and Robbie and saxophonist, David Sanborn. It’s also the first appearance on a Stones record by Chuck Leavell who had been in the Allman Brothers Band and had joined the 1982 European tour as the second keyboard player, along with Ian Stewart.
