EDITORS’ NOTES

From 1971 through to the day The Rolling Stones call it quits is considered the legendary band's second era. Their early manager Allen Klein owns the rights to everything the band released up to Sticky Fingers (on which the band co-own certain tracks); that's why their music is divided along these lines. In 1971, the band formed their own Rolling Stones Records through Atlantic Records and have since brought their catalog with them to every new label. This "collection" features all their studio albums, including Exile on Main St. and Some Girls in their most recent deluxe editions, plus their many live albums. A few unincluded b-sides and trivial tracks aside, this features the classic band adapting to the marketplace they helped create. Sticky Fingers, Exile on Main St., and Some Girls are classic albums, but Goats Head Soup, Emotional Rescue, and Tattoo You are often underrated. Every studio album has hidden treasures, while live albums such as Stripped re-ignite the Stones' classics as only they can.
