The Rolling Stones’ album reissue of “Sticky Fingers” (Super Deluxe Edition) and Mick Jagger’s work as a producer of the documentary “Mr. Dynamite: The Rise of James Brown” are among the nominations for the 58th Annual Grammy Awards, according to an announcement made by the Recording Academy on Dec. 7, 2015. The winners will be announced at the Grammy Awards ceremony at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Feb. 15, 2016. The “Sticky Fingers” reissue has been nominated for Best Boxed or Special Limited Edition Package. “Mr. Dynamite: The Rise of James Brown” (which was televised in the U.S. on HBO) has been nominated for Best Music Film.
“Sticky Fingers” was originally released in 1971. The album has been reissued several times, most recently in June 2015. The 2015 super deluxe edition of “Sticky Fingers” is a box set that has the remastered album and bonus CD featuring previously unreleased alternate takes and live performances. The box set also includes the “Get Yer Leeds Lungs Out” CD, the 13-track audio recording of the Stones’ gig in Leeds in March 1971; a DVD featuring two tracks from “Live At The Marquee”; 7-inch vinyl with “Brown Sugar” and “Wild Horses”; and a print, poster, four-postcard set and mini-replica of band cut out. The entire package is in a presentation box with a hardback book complete with real zipper. The carefully put-together 120-page, limited-edition book recounts the making of this classic Stones album with an extensive essay by Nick Kent, embellished with previously unpublished images of the band and lavishly illustrated with metallic gold ink throughout. Art directors Stephen Kennedy and James Tilley (not the Rolling Stones) are the actual nominees for this Grammy category.
Meanwhile, Jagger is one of the producers nominated for “Mr. Dynamite: The Rise of James Brown,” which was directed by Alex Gibney. The documentary had its U.S. television premiere on HBO on Oct. 27, 2014. Critics’ reviews for “Mr. Dynamite: The Rise of James Brown” were overwhelmingly positive, unlike the reception for “Get On Up” (the 2014 James Brown feature film biopic, also produced by Jagger), which got mixed reviews from critics and did mediocre business at the box office.
