30 Years Ago Today – The Rolling Stones Release Their “Worst” Album – ‘Dirty Work’ (Watch “Harlem Shuffle” Video)

30 years ago today (3/24/86), The Rolling Stones released what most consider their worst album – Dirty Work.  Produced by Steve Lillywhite, the album was recorded during a period when relations between Mick Jagger and Keith Richards soured considerably, according to Richards’ autobiography Life. The album was met with mediocre reviews and came out at the apex of the 80’s and MTV era. The album produced a hit for the Rolling Stones, the cover of “Harlem Shuffle,” and featured a number of guest appearances, including contributions by Tom Waits, Patti Scialfa, Bobby Womack, and Jimmy Page on “One Hit (To the Body).” The band never toured for the album and their followup album 1989’s Steel Wheels, was considered at the time a return to form. Watch the rather playful and 80’s colored up video for “Harlem Shuffle.”
