Originally released in October of 1992, Main Offender was the second solo record from famed Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards, coming between Stones albums Steel Wheels and Voodoo Lounge.

On March 18, “Keef” will revisit the album to commemorate its 30th anniversary with a reissue package. Among the different varieties to be made available is the Deluxe Box Set, which is tailor made for the most devoted Keith fans:

  • 180g Smoke Colored LP & CD of the fully remastered Main Offender album
  • Previously unreleased Winos Live In London ’92 concert on 180g double LP & CD
  • All audio remastering overseen by original producer & X-pensive Wino, Steve Jordan
  • 88-page, leather-bound book with never-seen-before photos & Keith’s handwritten lyrics
  • Main Offender tour guitar pick, bumper sticker, promotional posters & more

Also available will be standard CD and LP editions of Main Offender. The album was produced by Richards, Waddy Wachtel and Steve Jordan, the latter of which having worked alongside the Stones and Stones-adjacent projects for years (and even stepped in to take over on drums for Charlie Watts on the Stones’ most recent tour, prior to Watts’ unfortunate passing).

Though it was released to positive reviews, Main Offender didn’t quite catch on in the same way as Richards’ debut solo record, 1988’s Talk is Cheap, and he wouldn’t release another solo album until 2015’s Crosseyed Heart.

Still, Main Offender is a crucial part of Richards’ musical oeuvre and is deserving of such a lavish revisiting, so be sure to check out this 30th anniversary edition.
