"Live Licks" is a double live album by The Rolling Stones and was released in 2004. Coming six years after "No Security", this seventh official Rolling Stones full-length live release captures performances from the band's year-long 2002-2003 Licks Tour in support of their career-spanning retrospective "Forty Licks".


As a double album - their first live release of the sort since 1977's "Love You Live", the band decided to split the two discs up into different categories: one of well-known classics, another of lesser known, but still worthy inclusions. Of the special guests taking part, Sheryl Crow appears on "Honky Tonk Women", while Solomon Burke sings on his own "Everybody Needs Somebody to Love", which The Rolling Stones originally covered on "The Rolling Stones No. 2" in 1965.

Not afraid to court controversy in these autumnal years in their career, The Rolling Stones released two subtly different versions of cover art for "Live Licks". While both feature the Rolling Stones logo's tongue in a very suggestive context, one features the woman without her bikini top. The latter is the British version. Both appear to be anime-inspired.

"Live Licks" was released in November 2004 and received very good reviews, some calling it their best live release since 1970's "'Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out!'". Commercial reaction was slightly better overall than what had greeted "No Security" in 1998, with "Live Licks" peaking at #38 in the UK and #50 in the US, though it became a gold record.
