5.0 out of 5 stars Finest Distilled Stones April 15 2004
Format:Audio CD
Though I view the earlier albums Between the Buttons and Aftermath as massive achievements, the real golden era of Stones recording started with Beggars banquet, a landmark achievement of the finest bluesy, country-stained angular rock. People will often relate it to the next Stones album, Let It Bleed, which of course included some material recorded in the Beggars sessions in 1968. They'll say how brutally slick Let It Bleed is, and I see that current Top 100 Rock Album lists tend to place Bleed as the second-best placed Stones album (after Exile of course) and often Beggars drops down to third, fourth or fifth. However, I put Beggars on a par with Exile. It is sublime. There are no dud tracks. It was the perfect distillation of what the young Rolling Stones were in their peak, before the extreme decadence of the early 70s set in and was soaked in great records like Sticky, Exile and Goat's Head. It has the smell of the country dirt plus the oil of the city train to it. At turns, violent and visceral, then reflective and humourous. Beggars has a crispness to it and it shines - witness the outro to Street Fighting Man, it is transcendental in its soaring beauty, crystalised by Brian Jones' sitar. In fact much is made of the fact that Jones was too out of it to contribute much to this album, and it's true that this is a Keith tour de force on guitar and songwriting, but it has to be said Brian's ethereal touch leaves an indelible print on some of the album's most poignant parts, like the slide on No Expectations or the (flute/recorder?) ghostly outro on Jigsaw Puzzle.

1.0 out of 5 stars good music, horrible CD quality Dec 5 1999
By 500256
Format:Audio CD
This is a classic album, but Abkco did a terrible job remastering it. I highly doubt what the cover says about it being "digitally remastered from original master recordings". It sounds like someone took an old, scratchy vinyl record of this and put it on CD as it was. Every track has loud pops and hisses in the background, and "Street Fighting Man" and "Salt of the Earth" have incredibly annoying clicking noises which distract from the listening experience. This album is desperate for a true remaster. Abkco released the whole catalogue of the Stones' work from 1964-69 onto CD very sloppily about 13 years ago, and nobody's done anything with them since. Most don't even have a lyrics booklet, and on "Let It Bleed" they put the tracks on in the wrong order. Hopefully they'll take a hint from Virgin's special editions of Exile on Main Street and Sticky Fingers and release at least the classics such as this album in a remastered special edition form. In the meantime, big Stones fans should buy this and suffer through the muddy sound quality, but minor fans should wait until they do something about this mess of an album. Are you listening, Abkco?

1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware: This New SACD Release is a Scheme Sept. 22 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This CD is an SACD release, meaning it will play on your home stereo -- but NOT in your PC. Major record labels are pushing SACD as an "improvement" over standard CDs, because they're hoping it will become the new format of choice for music lovers -- music lovers that don't want to listen to music on their PCs, that is, and don't want to play music in an Ipod or a portable MP3 player, or burn backup copies of their CDs. Record labels have even hired "grassroots" marketers to post messages on boards like this one, hailing the achievements of SACD. Don't believe them. Do NOT buy any of the Rolling Stones remasters series releases if you're a user that likes to listen to music on a PC or turn your tracks into MP3s or make back-up copies of the music you buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars If "Let it Bleed" had a country cousin... March 14 2004
Format:Audio CD
... this would be it.
Recently, a friend of mine asked me to tape the best Stones albums for him and, of course, the absolute essentials of the Stones albums are their Big Five: "Between the Buttons," "Beggars," "Let it Bleed," "Sticky Fingers" and the piece de resistance: "Exile on Main Street."
But in going through them all, I found myself paying more attention to "Beggars," which I usually throw over in favor of its big city cousin, "Let it Bleed," and which is arguably the one of the five I listen to the least.
What an incredibly strange album for the Stones to have releaed in 1968. Yes there's lots of typical Stonesian stuff here ("Sympathy," "Stay Cat Blues," "Jig-Saw Puzzle") but clearly, "Satanic Majesties" purged them of their urge to be trendily psychedelic because this is an album full of acoustic and steel guitars, stocked with jugs of Jagger's acre-broad drawl. And, yes, it wasn't unusual to see an electric band head into acoustic territory in the late 60s but still... the year after the summer of love, what did people make of fashion plates like the Stones recording material along the lines of "Dear Doctor" and "Prodigal Son" ?
Founding member Brian Jones may have been in a holding pattern over Heathrow at the time, but fortunately other ingredients coagulated: Jimmy Miller's chunky production, the session playing of Nicky Hopkins and Ry Cooder, and influences on Keith Richards, who was clearly listening to lots of diverse blues and R&B records at the time.
Strange, beautiful record. I've started listening to it in my shower-stall CD player in the mornings and it sounds just like a cold beer with breakfast after a late night.

One of the finest Stones albums. Street Fighting Man, with its slurred anarchistic lyrics, is possibly the most meaningful, emotional Stones track ever.
