18 Songs, 1 Hour 7 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

This 1972 double album holds a place in Stones mythology far beyond its initial release. It's the band at their most detailed and complex. The layers of sound take repeat listens to sort through. Mick Jagger’s vocals are often buried beneath the numerous guitar, horn, and backing vocal overdubs and the songs reflect their many influences. Straight-ahead rockers (“Rocks Off,” “Tumbling Dice,” “Happy"), dark blues (“Ventilator Blues"), country (“Sweet Virginia”), and gospel (“Shine a Light”) combine for the ultimate rock ’n’ roll night.
