Product Description

Product Description

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

One often hears it said (even among the reviews here) that Greatest Hits really are; the rest is filler and not needed unless one is a completefreak. I do not subscribe; quite the opposite in fact. But let me not judge. Be my guest.
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).

What's this about Let It Bleed not being consistent? I beg to differ! While songs like Live With Me and Country Honk took a while for me to warm up to, I eventually developed appreciation for all these tracks. And MONKEY MAN, which was considered subpar by another reviewer, is my favorite track here. Too often folks overlook the value of Jagger's lyrics, and here they shine: "I'm a fleabit peanut monkey, all my friends are junkies - that's not really true!" "I'll stick my knife right down your throat and it hurts!" "You'd look good pram-pushin' down the high street!"
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.

This is disputably the greatest Rolling Stones album ever. Difficult to detect even a single weak moment on the entire Jimmy Miller production. The group's moment of true brilliance is captured expertly by Miller on the album's opener Gimme Shelter, as well as in the taunting blues of Midnight Rambler, and the first (released/non-shared) Richards lead vocal track You Got the Silver. Despite Brian Jones having long since detached himself from the group, he does appear on the album beside newly-acquired guitarist Mick Taylor, though the sessions were separated by many months. Honky Tonk Women, which appeared in alternate form on this album, would have suited Jones' blues feel which Taylor expertly performs in his absence. Providing music for a great many number of films to this day, virtually all of the selections found here are quite worthy of such attention - check out the Layla-like closing to Monkey Man. Though some may argue that the live version of Midnight Rambler (from Ya-Ya's) outperforms the original, there is little doubt that You Can't Always Get What You Want has never been improved upon. During a turbulent period within the Stones as well as around the globe, this album provided the most appropriate soundtrack to the decade which was about to violently end.

'Let It Bleed' is one of those albums that is on every major "Best Albums Ever" sort of list. It is just that good. From start to finish, the album never loses its consistency. 'Gimmie Shelter' may be one of the best opening songs of all time. (but then again, there's also 'Sympathy For The Devil', and 'Miss You' to contend with). Then there's 'You Can't Always Get What You Want' to seal off the album. Any album that begins on 'Gimmie Shelter' and ends on 'You Can't Always Get What You Want' has to have something good in the middle, right? 'Midnight Rambler' is a bluesy romp about a serial killer, while 'Monkey Man' is an eerie drug tale with some vibrant, dark effects. This album doesn't house a single dud or dramatic misfire, it's the Rolling Stones in their creative peak. There isn't much to say about this landmark album that hasn't been said in other reviews, in magazines and this site. For those looking for a nice starting point, this album would be great. 'Forty Licks' is a decent collection with an enormous amount of hits (and misses), but that can't be a total substitute for the original albums.
*** 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).
