5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST example of the early, hungry & pure Rolling Stones, May 5 2004
Perhaps the best "true" Rolling Stones. "You Can't Catch Me" and "Down The Road Apiece" are on fire and cut the Master's (Chuck Berry) original versions. "Down Home Girl", "What A Shame", and "Mona (I Need You Baby)" are THE essence of the original Rolling Stones, and show Brian Jones' remarkable talent and leadership; "Little Red Rooster" is arguably the best Stones' blues ever recorded. "Heart Of Stone" and "Pain In My Heart" are the soul(ful) songs of the set. The best surprise on the enhanced CD is the inclusion of the original (and GREAT!) version of Wilson Pickett's "Everybody Needs Somebody To Love". This superb track was on the original vinyl, but someone (unknowing or uncaring)put a second rate version on the cassette and 1st CD. To whomever made this change: THANK YOU! This opening song is worth the price of the whole CD. Play it LOUD!

Perhaps the best "true" Rolling Stones. "You Can't Catch Me" and "Down The Road Apiece" are on fire and cut the master's (Chuck Berry) original versions. "Down Home Girl", "What A Shame", and "Mona (I Need You Baby)" are THE essence of the original Rolling Stones, and show Brian Jone's remarkable talent and leadership; "Little Red Rooster" is arguably the best Stone's blues ever recorded. "Heart Of Stone" and "Pain In My Heart" are the soul(ful) songs of the set. The only disappointment is "Everybody Needs Somebody To Love", a Wilson Pickett tune: the original (and GREAT!) version is on the vinyl and cassete sets, but someone (unknowingly or uncaring) put a second rate version on the CD. If you can find this album on vinyl or cassette, the oringinal opening song is worth the price. Play it LOUD!
