Talk Is Cheap is the debut solo album by Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones, released in 1988. Relations between Jagger and Richards had grown tense into the third decade of the Rolling Stones as they began to disagree on the musical direction of the band; "You Don't Move Me" would be written about their feud.

To the surprise of absolutely no one, Talk Is Cheap often resembles a Rolling Stones album ("Take It So Hard" could pass for the best Stones single since "Start Me Up"), but part of its charm is that even when it strays far from the band's template - such as the churning funk of "Big Enough" or. the Chuck Berry tribute/rip-off "I Could Have Stood You Up" - it still beautifully captures what Richards brought to the band as a guitarist and songwriter, only in different surroundings and fresh contexts.

The audio has been remastered by original producer Steve Jordan and this set comes with six unreleased bonus tracks featuring Mick Taylor, Bootsy Collins, & Johnnie Johnson

Keith Richards never wanted to go solo. He'd intimated over and over that the Rolling Stones would basically have to break up to get him to consider such a thing. And that's just about where his band was as the late '80s wore on. So, Richards finally relented, releasing his debut album Talk Is Cheap on Oct. 3, 1988. Fittingly, he approached it with mixed feelings. It's kind of strange, because it was never in the cards for me," Richards told Rolling Stone on the eve of the album's arrival

So Keith Richards decided to do something he’d always held off on: form his own solo band. The result was Talk is Cheap, an endearingly ragged classic considered by many fans the best Rolling Stones-related release of the last three decades. To celebrate its 30th anniversary on March 29th, the album will finally be reissued as a huge box set that includes the album on CD and vinyl, six unreleased tracks from the sessions and an 80-page book featuring a new interview with Richards. There an even more extravagant super deluxe box set that comes in a case that replaces Richards’ guitar case made by the Fender Custom Shop. This album holds up, Richards said.

Keith Richards' "Talk Is Cheap" will be reissued on March 29. (BMG Rights Management). That core group of players expanded with guest appearances by c bassist "Bootsy" Collins and keyboardist Bernie Worrell, James Brown saxophonist Maceo Parker, singer and recent (at that time) E Street Band recruit Patti Scialfa, NRBQ bassist Joey Spampinato, Cajun fiddler and singer Michael Doucet of Beausoleil, zydeco accordionist-singer Stanley Buckwheat Dural J. singer Sarah Dash and, on the track "Make. Among the album’s admirers are guitarist, singer and songwriter Bonnie Raitt, who told The Times last week: I loved that record. I love his solo work. I hope they make a big deal out of it.

Tolrajas
If you unscrew the "Talk is Cheap" nameplate on the side of the wooden Fender case, there is a silver guitar pick hidden underneath.
Anen
This is a stunning collection, packaged in a beautiful folio with an abundance of material inside. The sound on these LPs is bright and funky, with crystal clear mastering and a feel that makes you think you’re in the studio with the band. The book is beautiful and filled with personal photos and notes about the recording of the original album. The posters are a treat, printed on heavyweight paper, but I do wish they hadn’t been folded. (No other way to get them into the package though.) Nice extras like the guitar pick, backstage pass and replica listening party insert.But the hidden gem of the set is the track Slim, found on the Sessions “outtakes” LP and CD. Clocking in at over ten minutes, it’s a full on instrumental jam session with each musician taking turns strutting their stuff. If you listen closely, you can even hear Keith chatting up his band mates while working through the song. This track alone is worth the price of admission. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen such a lovely box set, and it will probably be even longer before I see another one so well put together.
Brightcaster
It's come to my attention that Amazon is burning CD-Rs of this release and selling them for $10 a pop. Unbelievable. How is this legal?
Peles
It has come to my attention that this CD was released by Mobile Fidelity in 1992 according to most sources for MFSL Discography. Sometime in 1992 production of Gold Cd's was transferred back to the USA and every issue or re-issue of UDCD issues were then re branded Ultradisc 2. That would make the Ultradisc made in Japan of this and any other first issued 1991-92 Gold Discs from MFSL a fairly uncommon Label version to find. That would be stock numbers UDCD 543 upto (maybe)around UDCD 560 which could have only been issued with Ultradisc Made in Japan branding for UPTO a year, the later ones for only a few months, before issue transferred back to the USA as ultradisc 2. Anyone got any further light to shed on this comment?
