iTunes Review

Over the course of their 50-year existence, The Rolling Stones have gone from blues-worshipping bad boys to arguably the world's most popular band, routinely selling out stadiums around the planet despite being old men who haven't had a big new hit since the '80s. Their discography is about as deep as it gets, and their output from the '60s and '70s alone includes countless standards that dominate classic rock radio. There are dozens of Stones greatest-hits collections on the market today, but this one is different. It includes every single—including B sides—that they ever released on London Records, their home for the first six years, before establishing their own label. It includes a great mix of early-era cover songs ("Come On," "Not Fade Away"), chart-topping smash hits ("Satisfaction," "Jumpin' Jack Flash"), plus more unpredictable experiments ("2000 Light Years from Home") and inside jokes ("The Under Assistant West Coast Promotion Man"). At 59 tracks, there's a lot to take in, but the songs all still hold up, and the more obscure, little-heard tracks are especially compelling.

The Mother-Lode

Not the album that newbies should come too if they are just barely getting their textbooks for a stones education. But great for middle class men & above. This is NOT a hits collection, this is A-sides & B-Sides of their 60s takeover. So it has a mix of Classics, Rareities, Fan's Cuts, & just general good songs. Nothing but excellency from the greatest musical artist to live.

Excellent collection

The massive size of this collection makes it a bad choice for casual fans, but it is highly recommended to anyone else. The mono mixes should make this interesting for hardcore fans as well, and there's some other stuff here that isn't available on the proper studio albums (though you can just grab it off the box set). However, some of the mixes aren't the same as the original 45s- Ruby Tuesday is missing an overdub (the same problem exists on all the 2002 Stones CDs, but they were fixed for the iTunes masters done last year- why was this one not fixed) and the Beggars Banquet tracks run at their proper speed, unlike the original singles.

Great stuff

Except how often will this be released?

By the time the Rolling Stones began calling themselves the World's Greatest Rock & Roll Band in the late '60s, they had already staked out an impressive claim on the title. As the self-consciously dangerous alternative to the bouncy Merseybeat of the Beatles in the British Invasion, the Stones had pioneered the gritty, hard-driving blues-based rock & roll that came to define hard rock. With his preening machismo and latent maliciousness, Mick Jagger became the prototypical rock frontman, tempering...
