Limited Edition vinyl LP repressing of this classic Rolling Stones album, originally released in 1969. Considered to be one of the band's finest full length platters, Let It Bleed features 'Gimme Shelter', 'Love In Vain', 'Midnight Rambler' and 'You Can't Always Get What You Want'. Decca.
One of the Stones' most beloved albums, 1969's Let It Bleed was a benchmark for several reasons. First, founding guitarist Brian Jones died during the recording process. Second, the Stones take their last significant look at pure blues (Robert Johnson's spooky "Love in Vain") and country ("Country Honk," the two-stepping alter ego of "Honky-Tonk Women") before folding both styles into a cohesive rock & roll vision. Third, it contains some of the band's most eerie hits, such as the flame-enveloped "Gimme Shelter," the drug-reality anthem "Monkey Man," the epic "You Can't Always Get What You Want," and Mick Jagger's menacing "Midnight Rambler." --Steve Knopper

If one wishes to actually test this theorem, here's my suggestion: buy the Stones' "Hot Rocks" and "More Hot Rocks," in my opinion the two best best-of collections ever -- and among the few in which the band's actual best work is actually represented well -- and then buy this record.
"Let It Bleed" (and what are so often -- with good reason -- considered its companion works: "Beggars Banquet," "Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out," "Sticky Fingers" and "Exile on Main Street") date from a time you can't imagine if you cut your rock'n'roll teeth on such as Guns'N'Roses and Pearl Jam, Green Day and Nirvana and Korn: the period during which Mick Jagger and Keith Richard(s) were, with no serious competition, the coolest humans on the planet, and possibly the coolest ever. (Yes. Hard to imagine now.) There is not a recorded word spoken by either during the period 1968-1972 that won't clue you in on the key to the stiletto-sharp lyrics that populate the above albums. And "Let It Bleed," although it isn't frequently considered the best of the set, hits the Stones at the peak of their form as interpreters of style. It's been said by better than me that the Stones' earliest work is essential to any basic understanding of rock'n'roll. This period indeed captures their revolutionary hard-wiring of blues guitar riffs into something else entirely (to paraphrase the Rough Guide).Read more ›
And if they were pushing buttons before with Satisfaction and Sympathy for the devil, they took the whole control board and threw it out the window when Mick begged repeatedly at the end of the title track: "You can come all over me!"
But to get serious, I don't think any other album released during the late 60s captured the late 60s the way Let it Bleed did. I was but a zygote (that means "not born") when this album came out, but I'm sure older Stones fans will agree that this record has all the blood, sweat, tears, and turmoil that was the late 60s. Beatles arguably released better albums, but none that depicted the "sweeping fire" like this one did. Bob Dylan's voice was missing from the music scene at this time as well. He was busy experimenting with introspective country songs. Simply put, The Stones picked up the torch, and started their best tour. Then, life imitated art at Altamont. The rest is history.
*** The SACD is not a marketing scheme or a fraud. I own both the 'Let It Bleed' and 'Beggars Banquet' remasters and they both play fine on my computer. I was able to rip songs onto mp3s just fine too. (I don't even have a remarkably powerful or new computer either). I don't own a special DSD Sony cd player, but I find the sound quality to be clear enough on my computer and home stereo system. The negative comments lead me to believe that there is either a defect on the initial pressings of the cd (possible, but not likely) or certain CD-ROM drives can't read the disc (very possible), or maybe people are complete ... (most likely the case).

one of the best of all time . however, it would be nice if they would specify that this is only stereo mix on a Blu-ray disc. There are no 5.1 tracks here. Great album. Read morePublished 6 months ago by J. Hamm
