Hot Rocks, 1964-1971 (Remastered)

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
This two-LP/two-CD set is both a lot more and a bit less than what it seems. It is seven years' worth of mostly very high-charting -- and all influential and important -- songs, leaving out some singles in favor of well-known album tracks, and in the process, giving an overview not just of the Rolling Stones' hits but of their evolving image. One hears them change from loud R&B-inspired rockers covering others' songs "Time Is on My Side" into originators in their own right "Satisfaction"; then into tastemakers and style-setters with a particularly decadent air "Get Off of My Cloud," "19th Nervous Breakdown"; and finally into self-actualized rebel-poets "Jumpin' Jack ...

On its initial release, Hot Rocks sold well, not only as a unique compilation but also as a panorama of the 1960s. The only flaw was that it didn't give a good look at the Stones' full musical history, ignoring their early blues period and the psychedelic era. There are also some anomalies in Hot Rocks' history for the collector -- the very first pressings included an outtake of "Brown Sugar" featuring Eric Clapton that was promptly replaced; and the original European CD version, issued as two separate discs on the Decca label, was also different from its American counterpart, featuring a version of "Satisfaction" mastered in stereo and putting the guitars on separate channels for the first time. Those musicologist concerns aside, this is still an exciting assembly of material.

    Sympathy with these devils

    The Rolling Stones are the best badasses rock music has ever seen. Some of their best guitar licks and poetic jaded lyrics are in this remastered CD case. All the classics like Sympathy for The Devil, Jumpin Jack Flash and Midnight Rambler.

    Classic Stones

    The Rolling Stones have been releasing incredible albums for more than three decades. Finally, the Stones collaberated a CD that brings together the classic songs that made them giants in the world of rock n' roll. This two-CD set offers any die hard fan or new listener of the Stones their original classic hits which have incredible replayable value. This record is a must have for any true fan of classic rock!

    Great CD but Defective

    The second CD was great. The first CD was printed with the correct songs but plays the same songs as the second one. Too bad...maybe online shopping isn't as great as I thought it was. Now I can look forward to a long wait before I can listen to the entire set.
