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.
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 Generally, best-of collections are superseded by updated retrospectives.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
