Limited edition double vinyl pressing of the finest Stones compilation ever released.
It's the rare greatest-hits album that takes on a life of its own. Generally, best-of collections are superceded by updated retrospectives. Hot Rocks is one of the rare exceptions to the rule. Originally released in 1972, it instantly became the Stones intro of choice, elbowing aside Big Hits, High Tide and Green Grass and Through the Past Darkly. Why? It happened to hit the racks when Mick and company were at their creative peak. The 21 tracks found here represent seven years of dizzying growth. From "Time is on My Side" through "Satisfaction" and "Let's Spend the Night Together," on to Sticky Fingers's "Brown Sugar" and "Wild Horses," Hot Rocks never lets up. The likes of Sucking in the '70s and Jump Back come and go, but this Stones overview will not be moved. --Steven Stolder --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The LP's are 180 gram weight. Inner sleeves above average quality, exterior non-acid paper with poly internal lining. They slide very easily into the jacket,
without any resistance with the inner seams of the jacket. The jacket binding is above average, just enough flex in the binding to open the center fold/ and
close again without stressing the center seams. The cellophane wrapping is very clean, no adhesion to jacket thus not affecting artwork. The inks used for the
artwork on the jacket is actually better quality than that of the original. The print has a mild sheen, which adds a subtle smoothness to the touch.
The original Hot Rocks jacket was rigid in the center fold, adding stress to the center binding & seams. This over time introduced ink/ print cracking on the stress points.
The audio quality of this remastered version is far superior to the original pressing. The deeper cuts/ grooves introduces improved harmonics, particularly in the
signal to noise ratio (SNR) spec. There is an overall improved harmonic dimension that did not exist with the original pressing. I am using the same turntable and
cartridge spec used then. Turntable is a JA Michell with a Shure V15 type III cartridge, tracking force 1.65 grams. I also noticed the last track or near the end/ center of LP
maintained great consistency to the outer cuts. This simply did not exist with older vinyl cuts. This is important as the lineage or protraction angle of the stylus deviates
as it goes closer to the center.Read more ›
Though all the songs collectively on this compilation would add up to 5-stars, its hard to award any compilation that wasn't intended by the artist originally as a cohesive work that highest of high reviewers garnishment. If you are a true Stones maniac, go get the individual albums, preferably in vinyl, and revel in your revelry. If not, this is a great place to start. You may have to augment with more of their recent hits compilations, but this one isn't a CD that gets played initially and then is placed on the shelf to collect dust.
Though it's true that sometimes you can't always get what you want, with this compilation you can come awfully close.
As at least one reviewer previously mentioned, this compilation indeed is very well representative of the top songs from the Rolling Stones glory period between 1964 and 1971. Each chosen track is very appropriate and there are really no glaring ommissions.
For those who appreciate the more modern sounds of this fine band, you might want to pick up the new Forty Licks collection. However, if you want a focused collection of the bands greatest hits from their peak years only, this is the perfect purchase.
Its mostly rock n roll(a few ballads) but you'll like it. Of coure if you are a big time fan just buy all their original releae such as Let It Bleed, Beggars Banquet, Sticky Fingers, etc.
It's great to hear some of the really classic songs any time you want. I'm actually rather sick of Satisfaction because that sometimes seems to be the only Stones track the deejays think they can play. It's a great song, but it's far from the Stones' best. I'll take Paint It Black any day of the week - this song has a uniquely haunting quality that reaches out and grabs you, and many may remember how it was used to perfection in the film Full Metal Jacket. CD number one has a great mix of fast and slow songs: Jagger gets mellow on the likes of Time Is On My Side, Play With Fire, and As Tears Go By, but the truly memorable songs are rocking tracks such as Get Off of My Cloud, Mother's Little Helper, and 19th Nervous Breakdown. CD number two finds the guys a little farther along in their careers, and it's not hard to hear the maturity of the sound as the Stones' begin experimenting with different styles and adding an unquantifiable sense of polish to their work. Jumping Jack Flash, Sympathy For the Devil, Honky Tonk Women, Brown Sugar - we all know and love these.Read more ›

Not a weak track - especially sides three and four. Timeless music that sounds much better on vinyl than on CD or digital. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Michael Kuzik
If you only want to own one Stones album, this is it. A marvelous compilation and career perspective. Lots of great singles and hits. Buy it!Published on Jan. 31 2014 by Brian Hiltz
Love the album and would highly recommend it for even those who are not big stones fans. The LPs where close to flat, with only a small rise that did note impact the playing... Read morePublished on Jan. 29 2014 by Hacksaw
