An excellent compilation of rarities and previously released singles. You have classic hits like the bouncy Lets Spend The Night Together, the amusing Mother's Little Helper, or the pretty ballad Ruby Tuesday. Some people dislike the version of My Girl but truthfully the band plays it close to the original as they can. Mick Jagger does not have the same style as the Temptations but he certainly gives a nice tender rendition.
Rarities such as Backstreet Girl and Ride On Baby feature nice instrumental support. I really like the accordian touches on the former piece and the energy is quite infectious on the later song. However, Out of Time is the real gem on this collection. Great lead and harmony vocals and a hook that is oh so super catchy. Now where else can you find this tune?
I liked this record when I first purchased it many years ago. Today I still find it very enjoyable as it neatly sums up many of the best songs from the Rolling Stones mid sixties period. Very useful for those seeking a quick fix compilation.

I think we all know this is merely a collection that London/Abcko released merely to introduce American Stones fans to what they were missing on LP, mainly singles and tracks off the UK release of Aftermath and Between the Buttons, in the mold of the Beatles' 1966 release Yesterday and Today. Or perhaps, as another reviewer suggested, this was something released for Stones fans while Mick, Keith and Brian were settling drug busts in London.
That said, you got "Ruby Tuesday", "Lady Jane" and "Let's Spend the Night Together" on 2 American LP's. All of these are great songs, but I was a bit perplexed with the 3 then-previously released songs. As it stands now, it's merely a collection of songs about relationships (save "Mother's Little Helper," a tounge-in-cheek jab at drug dependence from those going through midlife crisis). "Sad Day," "Who's Driving My Plane," "Dandelion" and "We Love You" would have fit on this quite nicely (the latter being a thank you to fans for their support). Oh well, so much for Abcko giving Stones fans their complete money's worth. You got from the UK Aftermath (which is now available both here in the USA as well as the UK) "Mother's Little Helper" (which was released as a single in the USA), "Out of Time" (a nice kissoff song with a tasty marimba solo by Brian, albeit with an edited fadeout, the original is a few minutes longer) and the confrontational "Take It or Leave It." And from the UK Between the Buttons, you got "Backstreet Girl" (the sweet melody belies the sardonic lyrics, Brian is featured on glockenspiel and Ian Stewart is probably playing the accordian) and the psychedellic "Please Go Home" (anybody who was disgusted with Their Satanic Majesties Request should have a listen to this, which was recorded before the "summer of love").

uh, let's take a look please . . .
what a piece of leverage ...
This is a great way to lure friends into Stonesville. FLOWERS starts off with four or five of the hits they all like, and then subtly moves into some of their very best : BACKSTREET GIRL, and RIDE ON BABY. These two songs deserve this 'shrine.'
...and BACKSTREET GIRL certainly gives the lie to the idea that the Stones are a bunch of mysoginists . . .
PLEASE GO HOME is good, but I don't love it as much as the two previously mentioned, and insightful, jewels (check a good Stones' lyrics website.) Then, there's TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT, and SITTIN' ON A FENCE.
LADY JANE breaks up the whole collection nicely, with its Elizabethan traveling minstrelisms. . .
Ignore your friend's pleas about how the Stones' MY GIRL is no good...it's probably as good as alot of peoples' versions of this Temptations hit, and hardly demolishes the ultimate value/usefulness of this CD . . .don't overlook FLOWERS because of MY GIRL . . . don't miss the forest for the trees . . .
Sorry, but HAVE YOU SEEN YOUR MOTHER, BABY is possibly the greatest thing they ever did (again, check lyrics pages on internet.) At least, it's one of the more outstanding slices of Modernism from pop culture. Bob Dylan should blush. I think I'll print out the lyrics, and frame it up on my wall ...

Read my review for LONDON YEARS for my feelings about duplicative greatest hits collections: I'm not against them at all, for the sake of variety . . .
I don't care if FLOWERS really was a commercial arm-twist exercise. This LP will no doubt help me bring my Beatles-loving kid sister around to an equivalent fondness for the Fab Five.
Own the freakin' CD.

Here's another example of the way in which American record companies liked to make records where none previously existed. In mid-'67, when no new Stones product looked likely to be forthcoming (due, at least in part, to Mick and Keith getting busted at Redlands), London Records threw together two tracks that had been lopped off the UK "Between The Buttons" (to make room for the group's then-latest single, "Ruby Tuesday/Let's Spend the Night Together"), an uncollected A-side ("Have You Seen Your Mother Baby"), three leftovers from "Aftermath," including one that had been a single ("Mother's Little Helper," an edited "Out of Time," and "Take It Or Leave It"), three tracks that were previously unreleased ("My Girl," "Ride On Baby," and "Sittin' On A Fence")... and three tracks that had already been released on US albums ("Ruby Tuesday," "Let's Spend The Night Together," and "Lady Jane"). Thus was "Flowers" born.
That said, it's a better album that it has any real right to be. "Ruby Tuesday" and "Let's Spend The Night Together" sound more at home here than they do on "Between The Buttons," "Please Go Home" is the best Bo Diddley cut never cut by Bo Diddley, "Back Street Girl" is a peculiarly lovely demonstration of Mick's misongynist romanticism, and "Ride On Baby" is the best album filler track that never showed up on a proper Stones album (it would have gone down a treat on the UK "Aftermath"--after all, it would have made a dandy replacement for the likes of "Stupid Girl," "What To Do," or, ironically, "Take It Or Leave It," which is sort of the lame son of "Tell Me," if that tells you anything).
