Thanks buzzdainer, I think Steel Wheels is severely underrated, and is one of their best albums.

What a fascinating eighties chart! Even though we only have in common Neil Young's Freedom (a great album, by the way, and one that doesn't get nearly enough love), I really enjoy the unique approach you've taken here. Steel Wheels at #2 is a fine selection, which brought back fond memories of my seeing the Stones live at Shea Stadium on their Steel Wheels tour. Amazing how long they continued making excellent music!
