Product Description

Product Description

Double vinyl LP repressing of this 1971 collection from the Rolling Stones, one of the biggest selling titles in their 50 year career. Features all the great hits spanning the years 1964 to 1971. Features 21 tracks.

Amazon.ca

It's the rare greatest-hits album that takes on a life of its own. Generally, best-of collections are superseded by updated retrospectives.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.

If you aren't a die-hard Stones fan but enjoy their music, this is the compilation for you. From a seven year stretch from '64 to '71 you get to hear vast development from Mick and the Boys. Though Rolling Stones' hits may be difficult to get entirely under your thumb, this compilation proves it can hit on all the highlights from their early years and make for a thoroughly enjoyable listen.
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.

So many review writers seem to obsess about the sound quality and re-mastering of many Original Recordings including this excellent compilation. Where some people may find such commentary helpful, I think in most cases it detracts from the bottom line which is quality of the songs and the artists creativity at the time.
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.

Disc 2 is everything I could hope for, Jumpin' Jack Flash and Honky Tonk Women have never sounded better to these ears. But what happened to the earlier songs? Satisfaction has all of this extra echo that didn't exist before. Listen to the beginning of 19th Nervous Breakdown - the guitar that wangs in at 3 seconds is all but obliterated. That's not remastering - that's fraud! Ruby Tuesday sounds like the volume turned down everytime the chorus comes around. Buy this set for Disc 2 and don't throw out your old vinyl or CD's.

While I am writing a review of this two-CD collection of classic early Stones tracks, Hot Rocks 1964-1971 basically sells itself. You get all of the best songs from one of rock's most successful, long-established groups. These songs are probably older than Keith Richards' wife, but they still stand head and shoulders above most of the music released in the last three decades. On most retrospective collections, people look down the track list and ask why is that song on here or say they don't even remember this or that track. Not so with the Stones' Hot Rocks - each of the 21 song titles is immediately recognizable.

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.

The Rolling Stones were the original Bad Boys of rock. The Beatles and other groups of the early and mid-60s had a clean-cut image that The Rolling Stones deliberately flaunted with their facial expressions, appearance, and blues-influenced music that lyrically was more challenging than most other popular contemporary groups. The closest contemporary group to The Rolling Stones was Aerosmith, before they too became more commercial. Now so many groups attempt to affect a bad boy image that the image has been watered down and no longer has much meaning. But in the 60s, The Rolling Stones were the definition of rebellion and thinly veiled sexuality.
This collection of hits recalls The Rolling Stones at their most rebellious and cutting edge. In the still relatively proper (read Victorian-like) year of 1965 the song "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" bordered on being scandalous. When the boys sang with their shirts open with movements that pushed beyond Elvis Presley, you knew that these lads were something different. Later songs such as "Let's Spend the Night Together" pretty much threw the remnant of a veil away.
As The Rolling Stones moved into the late 60s their music changed steadily, frequently anticipating the direction of music. The ubiquitous sitar of psychedelic 60s music makes an incredible appearance in "Paint It, Black." Their music became heavily blues influenced in songs like "You Can't Always Get What You Want" and "Wild Horse." The vocals on the last song particularly were heavy, plaintive and emotional, very different from The Stones early music.
The re-mastering of this CD onto SACD will likely be a big plus for neo-audiophiles. The clarity of the sound is excellent. Many early recordings sound one-dimensional because of the quality of the masters.
