Dirty Work is The Rolling Stones  18th British (and 20th American) studio album, originally released on 24 March 1986 on The Rolling Stones label by CBS Records and produced by Steve Lillywhite.

The album was recorded during period when relations between Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, who had been feuding over the band's direction for most of the 1980s, had soured considerably, according to Richards' autobiography 'Life'.  The other 'Stones had spent the previous several years working on solo albums or side projects and  were often absent from the studio during recording sessions.  It was rare that all five principal members were together at the same time.  Dirty Work  would be the last album to feature former member and frequent contributor on piano Ian Stewart, who died shortly before the album's release. Many guest musicians appear on the album, including drummers Anton Fig and Steve Jordan (with whom Richards would form the band X-pensive Winos after recording this album), as well as guitarists Jimmy Page and Bobby Womack. Keyboards were played by Ivan Neville and Chuck Leavell, who would remain with the band for decades. Unlike most 'Stones albums, there was no supporting tour, because of the level of animosity among band members.

Released here as part of the LP Breakouts (Half-Speed Masters) series
