An excellent compilation of rarities and previously released singles. You have classic hits like the bouncy Lets Spend The Night Together, the amusing Mother's Little Helper, or the pretty ballad Ruby Tuesday. Some people dislike the version of My Girl but truthfully the band plays it close to the original as they can. Mick Jagger does not have the same style as the Temptations but he certainly gives a nice tender rendition.
Rarities such as Backstreet Girl and Ride On Baby feature nice instrumental support. I really like the accordian touches on the former piece and the energy is quite infectious on the later song. However, Out of Time is the real gem on this collection. Great lead and harmony vocals and a hook that is oh so super catchy. Now where else can you find this tune?
I liked this record when I first purchased it many years ago. Today I still find it very enjoyable as it neatly sums up many of the best songs from the Rolling Stones mid sixties period. Very useful for those seeking a quick fix compilation.

"Flowers" is another frustrating example of US record executives greed. Why release two Stones records when you can take 2 or 3 tracks off each, thrown in some singles or B-sides and release three Stones records? With this particular record (originally released in June 1967), you get the songs left off of "Aftermath" and "Between the Buttons" with the addition of some great singles.
Unfortunately (and this is the most frustrating point), you also get three songs that weren't on any Stones record ever. This is the only place to get "Ride On Baby", "Sittin' on a Fence" and "My Girl" (tracks that the Stones said they rejected for not making the cut). The cover of the Temptations classic "My Girl" is pretty lackluster and forgettable while the other two cuts are a bit of folk and pop with harpsichord and marimbas thrown in. Pleasant but unremarkable. However, "Have You Seen Your Mother, Baby, Standing in the Shadow" was a killer single (not on any LP) where the Stones went into sonic overdrive. That particular track was the one worthwhile reason for owning this album before but now that it's available on the "Singles Collection Boxed Set", this album is really only good for die-hard Stones fans for want to own everything.

I think we all know this is merely a collection that London/Abcko released merely to introduce American Stones fans to what they were missing on LP, mainly singles and tracks off the UK release of Aftermath and Between the Buttons, in the mold of the Beatles' 1966 release Yesterday and Today. Or perhaps, as another reviewer suggested, this was something released for Stones fans while Mick, Keith and Brian were settling drug busts in London.
That said, you got "Ruby Tuesday", "Lady Jane" and "Let's Spend the Night Together" on 2 American LP's. All of these are great songs, but I was a bit perplexed with the 3 then-previously released songs. As it stands now, it's merely a collection of songs about relationships (save "Mother's Little Helper," a tounge-in-cheek jab at drug dependence from those going through midlife crisis). "Sad Day," "Who's Driving My Plane," "Dandelion" and "We Love You" would have fit on this quite nicely (the latter being a thank you to fans for their support). Oh well, so much for Abcko giving Stones fans their complete money's worth. You got from the UK Aftermath (which is now available both here in the USA as well as the UK) "Mother's Little Helper" (which was released as a single in the USA), "Out of Time" (a nice kissoff song with a tasty marimba solo by Brian, albeit with an edited fadeout, the original is a few minutes longer) and the confrontational "Take It or Leave It." And from the UK Between the Buttons, you got "Backstreet Girl" (the sweet melody belies the sardonic lyrics, Brian is featured on glockenspiel and Ian Stewart is probably playing the accordian) and the psychedellic "Please Go Home" (anybody who was disgusted with Their Satanic Majesties Request should have a listen to this, which was recorded before the "summer of love").

uh, let's take a look please . . .
what a piece of leverage ...
This is a great way to lure friends into Stonesville. FLOWERS starts off with four or five of the hits they all like, and then subtly moves into some of their very best : BACKSTREET GIRL, and RIDE ON BABY. These two songs deserve this 'shrine.'
...and BACKSTREET GIRL certainly gives the lie to the idea that the Stones are a bunch of mysoginists . . .
PLEASE GO HOME is good, but I don't love it as much as the two previously mentioned, and insightful, jewels (check a good Stones' lyrics website.) Then, there's TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT, and SITTIN' ON A FENCE.
LADY JANE breaks up the whole collection nicely, with its Elizabethan traveling minstrelisms. . .
Ignore your friend's pleas about how the Stones' MY GIRL is no good...it's probably as good as alot of peoples' versions of this Temptations hit, and hardly demolishes the ultimate value/usefulness of this CD . . .don't overlook FLOWERS because of MY GIRL . . . don't miss the forest for the trees . . .
Sorry, but HAVE YOU SEEN YOUR MOTHER, BABY is possibly the greatest thing they ever did (again, check lyrics pages on internet.) At least, it's one of the more outstanding slices of Modernism from pop culture. Bob Dylan should blush. I think I'll print out the lyrics, and frame it up on my wall ...

Read my review for LONDON YEARS for my feelings about duplicative greatest hits collections: I'm not against them at all, for the sake of variety . . .
I don't care if FLOWERS really was a commercial arm-twist exercise. This LP will no doubt help me bring my Beatles-loving kid sister around to an equivalent fondness for the Fab Five.
Own the freakin' CD.
