5.0 out of 5 stars Just Reviewing The Music Nov. 2 2002
Format:Audio CD
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Compilation Of Loose Tracks Sept. 19 2002
Format:Audio CD
With the release of the remastered super audio CDs (SACD) of the Stones ABCKO catalog (which includes all the early Decca/London material), there is now some confusion as they have released some of the early albums in both US and UK versions. Flowers was released on Jul 14, 1967 only in the U.S. on London Records. It was never released in the U.K., so there is no UK version on CD.
The only reason you buy Flowers is because you want all the Stones releases. It was originally released as a clean up of the Stones American catalog. The band was working on albums and releasing singles without worrying about getting them onto albums during this time, so the record execs were going nuts trying to find a way to grab all the money they could before the band faded away.
Let's Spend The Night Together and Ruby Tuesday had been released together as a single in January of 67 along with the Between The Buttons album (which did not include either of them). Both songs had just dropped from the charts and were stuck on Flowers to increase sales, as was Have You Seen Your Mother which had been released the previous Sept but had not been included on an album either. Mother's Little Helper had been pulled from the American version of Aftermath for some reason, so Flowers was it's first album release. Lady Jane had been released both as a single and on Aftermath, so who knows why it was stuck on Flowers. Out of Time has such a wierd history, but this was the first American release.
This leaves us with the remainder of the Flowers cuts, which are the reason why Stones collectors still buy the album. All of them are available only on Flowers. Of this bunch, none are especially good, although I do sort of like Mick's rendition of My Girl.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good collection of various songs, but . . . June 21 2005
Format:Audio CD
I like FLOWERS. It's packed with good songs, both famous (Ruby Tuesday, Let's Spend the Night Together, Have You Seen Your Mother, Baby Standing in the Shadow?) and obscure (Out of Time, Backstreet Girl, Ride on Baby). It's a collection of castaways from other albums (UK AFTERMATH primarily) and current singles -- glued together this album gives you 40 minutes of excellent Stones music.
But it remains a hodge-podge. A lot of these tunes already appear on other records (e.g. BETWEEN THE BUTTONS). So, this limits the value of this collection.
Buyer beware...

5.0 out of 5 stars When They Were Kings Sept. 5 2003
Format:Audio CD
One of the greatest of all Stones albums, "Flowers" is often hailed as an expression of psychedelia. I think this overlooks the sheer rock feeling on some of the songs and their diversity, as well as Jagger's great shading on his strongly accented voice: Never has he sounded so wonderfully British (with a nod to Chicago blues singers).
The album blasts you with one great single after another: "Ruby Tuesday," "Have You Seen Your Mother, Baby, Standing in the Shadow" (foreshadowing their later involvement with big sounds and horns), the superb, defining "Let's Spend the Night Together" with its Beach Boys background vocals," Jagger's great wry tones and the harpsichord sounds on "Lady Jane," and another signature tune, "Out of Time." (Jagger is so expressive on the unusual "Lady Jane," you can almost picture him in ruffled sleeves, suavely exiting from his courtesans.) What's amazing is the band's uniformly superb musicianship. The songs are textured with flute, accordian, marimba, and other instruments, the bass and drums are tight and driving, and the guitars add nuance as well as bite. Then...then, there's "My Girl, " as bad as its reputation. The band actually gets much of a Motown feeling on the preceding "Out of Time." Maybe someone else knows why "My Girl" is so completely flat: Was the production rushed, were they over-awed by the original? I don't know, but the rest of the album more than makes up for this basically boring cover.
To cite "Backstreet Girl" as an example of the Stones' enlightened treatment of women (as one reviewer did here) is ridiculous; although Jagger's has an unusually tender vocal, he clearly relegates the song's subject to his hidden life.
