Product Description

Amazon.ca

Although notoriously difficult to license, the Rolling Stones release what may be considered their definitive "best of" collection, 40 Licks. Disc one focuses (with the exception of Sticky Fingers' "Wild Horses") on the golden period, from their formation in 1962 to 1970. Although not in chronological order, it includes every phase of the decade--the early covers like "Not Fade Away"; the all-conquering classics like "Satisfaction" and "Get off My Cloud"; the often overlooked psychedelic Satanic Majesties period represented here by "She's a Rainbow"; and when they really found their own sound, the Let it Bleed era with the likes of "Gimme Shelter" and "Jumpin' Jack Flash". If disc one covers the first eight years, then disc two covers the next 32--the stadium years. With an audience on a ludicrously grand scale, the Stones fell into a pattern of anthemic blues-rock, such as "Tumbling Dice", "Brown Sugar" and "It's Only Rock 'n' Roll". Next there were the odd experiments to keep up with the youngsters, such as the disco-influenced "Miss You", which, like Rod Stewart's "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy", was inspired, but thankfully a one off. And so onto the bleak period, after the stadium filler "Start Me Up", they fell on a rough patch that would last pretty much until Voodoo Lounge in the 1990s, a fantastic return to form, with several more songs that could have been worthy for this "best of" but were sadly not chosen in favour of "Love is Strong" and "You Got Me Rocking". Including four new songs produced by the same guy who did their last two albums, this really is the full story-so-far covering 40 years of the world's most famous rock & roll band. --David Trueman

5.0 out of 5 stars Need 65 Licks + July 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
40 Licks was released worldwide on October 1, 2002. Obviously, there are 40 tracks including 4 new ones (the single Don't Stop, Stealing My Heart, Keys To Your Love, and Keith's Losing My Touch). This one is the 22nd compilation album the Stones have released. It is the 19th compilation in the UK and the 9th in the US. There are lots of opinions about what should and should have been included/left off (there are *25* single releases that were not included). Remember, if anyone ever releases the entire Stones catalog as a box set it will have to be packaged in a trunk that comes with a dolly to get it out of the store. Since everybody knows the songs anyway, how about if I list what is on it from when for you?
These songs are the most popular from the Rolling Stones Records releases. Here are the original US and UK release dates of each song (US release and re-release dates were often different during this period):
3-6-64 Not Fade Away
7-24-64 It's All Over Now
3-12-65 The Last Time
6-4-65 (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction
9-24-65 Get Off Of My Cloud
2-11-66 19th Nervous Breakdown
5-6-66 Paint It, Black
7-1-66 Mother's Little Helper
7-1-66 Under My Thumb (not a single, from album Aftermath)
9-23-66 Have You Seen Your Mother, Baby, Standing In The Shadow?

3.0 out of 5 stars A good (but not great) collection Sept. 22 2003
Format:Audio CD
[This review applies to the domestic edition.]
The Rolling Stones have become one of the most popular rock bands in the world during their forty years of existance. Why? The answer is simple. They're an excellent band! Sure, Mick Jagger may be the ugliest man alive, but he knows how to sing. Of course, when a band gets this popular, they're gonna get a lot of hits compilations released. Recently, this one arrived in stores. Read on for my review of Forty Licks.
PROS:
-If you're the casual Stones fan, it's doubtful this compilation will fail to please you. Just about every big hit is here. Among them are Satisfaction, Under My Thumb, Only Rock And Roll, Brown Sugar, Start Me Up, and just about every other popular song.
-Unlike many of the band's hits compilations which are out of print and difficult to find, this one can be found in just about any store.
CONS:
-There are two startling omissions, both of which are cover songs. These are I Wanna Be Your Man (originally by the Beatles) and As Tears Go By (by Marianne Faithful.) I can't believe they put unreleased tracks on here instead of these classics!
-Many tracks are edited versions. I'd rather have the full-length versions of these tracks, even if that meant less tracks total on the compilation.
OVERALL:
If you're a casual Stones fan who doesn't want to shell out cash for every album, then I suggest picking this up. Just keep my warnings in mind if you do decide to make the purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, But Could've Been A Boxed Set July 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
The phrase "the greatest rock and roll band in the world", a term The Rolling Stones have used since the 1960s', can now be used as a fact rather than an opinion. They have sold millions of records and their tours among the highest - grossing of all time. And by 2002, they'd generated enough hit singles to release a 2- disc greatest hits set, "40 Licks". It is crammed with lots of great music, but does leave a lot to be desired.
Disc 1 features all the classic tracks fom the 1960s' that fans enjoy, from the riff - driven rockers ("Satisfacion", "Honky Tonk Women") to haunting ballads ("Ruby Tuesday", "You Can't Always Get What You Want") to experimental numbers ("Paint It Black"), you can't argue with what's here. Or can you? As great as everything is, there are more than a few great tracks left out. For starters, their first top 10 hit, "Time Is On My Side". And while "She's A Rainbow" is a great song, I would've preferred their other physcadellic hit single, "Dandelion", instead, plus its eerie b- side "We love You", written to vent Mick and Keith's gratitude toward their fans after their 1967 drug bust. Plus, where's "Tell Me", "Heart Of Stone", "Play With Fire" and "Lady Jane"? Had these great songs been included, plus the others I mentioned previously, you would have had a complete 1960s' Stones hit set.
Disc 2 is from their 1970s' peak. During this time, their music became more experimental, incorporating disco ("Miss You"), reggae ("Beast Of Burden"), and funk ("Emotional Rescue").

5.0 out of 5 stars Forty Licks July 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
The Rolling Stones, one of the greatest rock n roll bands of all time aside of The Beatles, presented rock n roll for many years to come. They went through the good times, and the bad times having heavy drug addictions towards the late 1960's. The band did not give up they just kept going giving their music forty licks. I think for the most part The Rolling Stones never died no matter what passed them by. This album spans from their music from 1963 through 2002. Dont get me wrong this album is perhaps the greatest hits of all time. It really has a great span of all of their music. If you really want a stones album with the whole package then Forty Licks is for you. I think the coolest thing about the album is the newer songs including Dont Stop, Keys To Your Love, Stealing My Heart, and Richards Losing My Touch. I just cant get over this album its my favorite, also its the latest stones album out their. You really will not miss out on anything on this one. For all those hard years hear is forty licks!

2.0 out of 5 stars Rolling stones 40 licks
This cd would not work in our new car's cd player. Works fine on older computer, maybe its format is for older players? Maybe I got a dud? Price was good though.

No home should be without some Rolling Stones music. If you still don't have some, then "40 Licks" is a very very nice way to start your collection !
