Product Description

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 Generally, best-of collections are superseded by updated retrospectives.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

Product Description

4.0 out of 5 stars For those that don't need every Stones release Oct. 26 2002
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot Rocks - Vinyl Remastered Jan. 17 2013
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
Having owned the original pressing, I was somewhat apprehensive about getting a new remastered version by today's re-engineering standards.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Rating The Music Oct. 26 2002
Format:Audio CD
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Outrageous rip-off for 30 year old songs ! Jan. 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
First, let me say that these songs are
incredible; there's no denying how good
these songs are. That's not what I'm here to
write about. I'm absolutely outraged that
Virgin can remaster these discs for the second
time and charge 18-19 bucks a disc for the
Stones ABKCO catalog ! This stuff has been
around for over 30 years and has made tons
and tons and tons of cash for everyone involved,
except Virgin which bought these masters from
ABKCO a few years ago. Further, most of the
early studio albums are about 30 minutes long.
These could and should have been two-fers, priced
at around 15 bucks. But this sickening greed will
prevent me from every upgrading the 1989 ABKCO
remasters. Even If I could afford it, I wouldn't
give a dime to these weasals. The Stones, themselves,
are somewhat to blame for seeking more piles of
hundred dollar bills to burn in their fireplaces
each night when they signed a new contract with
Virgin in 1996. But in the end it's the fans who
get the shaft. I've bought about a dozen Stones
records once or twice on vinyl and once again
on CD, and It royally pisses me off that these
dirtbags want 36 bucks for " Hot Rocks ". I hope
these greedhead record companies all burn in a
very special hell ! In a few years, they'll regret
doing this because they will be obsolete. We'll
be buying music directly from the artists. Boo
hooo and good riddance EMI/Virgin !

There is no reason why a digital down load can't come with all LP's today. Most of the LP's I buy today do come with a digital DL or a CD. I said this on other reviews. Read more
