Handy!
... with a shorter version of EVERYBODY NEEDS SOMEBODY (the longer is on MORE HOT ROCKS, I believe), the comical DOWN HOME GIRL and OFF THE HOOK, the immortal English #1 hit LITTLE RED ROOSTER, the elusive MONA, and the well-known HEART OF STONE, this may be the preferred starter-kit for many newcomers to the
early Stones essential albums ...
... I first heard LITTLE RED ROOSTER on the ROLLED GOLD lp back in the seventies ( a great collection, by the way, available in other vinyl/imported versions throughout the years. It might be reissued on CD at some point, for its variant song list for Stones/HOT ROCKS 'greatest hits' collection fans). Compare ROOSTER to 'I'm a King Bee', on the 'Newest Hitmakers' Stones CD ...
... It's great to hear the studio version of PAIN IN MY HEART, having only heard a live 60s version back in the Seventies on a small Stones EP ....
... someone said somewhere that the version of EVERYBODY NEEDS SOMEBODY on this CD is not as good as other available versions ... well, it sounds fine to me ...
I never owned the 80s 'foogy' version of this CD, so I have nothing to compare it with ... but this remastered sounds as good as all the other remastered Stones early sixties I have acquired, and I have nearly all of them ...
... you can use this to sequence MONA into your 'Newest Hitmakers' CD song list logged onto your media player in your computer, to see what the English edition of that first Stones album sounded like, overall ...
... remember: you won't catch the essence of Stones philosophy without listening a few times to all the early- to mid-sixties Stones studio albums ... the greatest hits collections just don't seem to do as thorough a job ...
... but see my recent Amazon.

Originally released in February of 1965 (between May 1964 and November 1965 the Stones were releasing albums at 4-5 month intervals,..crazy by today's standards!) "Now!" captures the pure essence of The Rolling Stones. This would be the last Stones album comprised soley (should be souly) of Blues, Country & Western, Rhythm & Blues, and Soul music.
"Now!" opens with Solomon Burke number "Everybody Needs Somebody To Love" (which used to be the opener for many of their live shows) which showcases the band's ability to grab you by the throat and give you some good old time religion in the church that R & B built! I'm not quite sure the Stones ever sounded more rootsy than they do on this record, as is evidenced by "Down Home Girl". Singing lyrics like "And everytime I kiss you girl it tastes like pork and beans" could Jagger be anymore convincing in the role of the "Southern Valentno"? If Mick doesn't get you on this song than surely the inertwined guitars of Brian Jones on slide and Keith Richards on standard will. Chuck Berry's "You Can't Catch Me" is up next and we discover that we've been plucked off the farm and depostied in to a high speed chase on the New Jersey Turnpike. The mastery the Stones (and Keith especially) have when it comes to Chuck's music is astounding as they not only capture the sound, but they capture Berry's swagger as well. "Heart Of Stone" is next and is the strongest Jagger/Richards composition to that point. This is a song full of danger and angst that easily could been sung by Johnny Cash. "Heart Of Stone" reached #19 on the charts in the USA, not bad as you could hardly call it a love song.

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!

Along with the first two US albums this showcases exactly why the Stones were such a hit by being the polar opposite of the Beatles. It wasn't a matter of whether or not you preferred one group over the other (in fact, most kids at that time loved both bands), it was a matter of them so completely complimenting each other that competition was not an issue. What they really had in common was great drummers. Just listen to Charlie's wonderful tubs! And Mick's voice, of course. They had a knack of finding those amazing rhythm and blues "B" sides that were just plain cool to listen to. This is a classic and showed the group to be maturing in their musicianship long before they started being the songwriting force that dominated the later lps.
