This is a double album that contains the Rolling Stones' biggest hit singles (and a couple of better known album tracks)as released on Decca/London Records in the mid-to-late 1960s.
There have been a lot of similar compilations before ("Green Grass and High Tides") and since ("Forty Licks")but this collection remains in print for several excellent reasons.
First, the songs are presented in roughly chronological order. This makes very good sense to any listener as you can hear the Stones' sound develop.
Second, these really are the very biggest hits the Stones had, and as evidence just look at any of their concert set lists to this day.
Third, these are some of the very best rock songs recorded during the 1960s and as such this is not just one of the best British Invasion compilations, it is one of the best rock compilations of all time. This is a Greatest Hits collection of the type we really don't see much of anymore, what with current trends for boxed sets and newly-recorded "bonus tracks" that are often forgettable.
For a lot of fans, this is the definitive Rolling Stones album.
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 Flash," "Midnight Rambler") and Shaman-like symbols of chaos.
The songs themselves need no introduction, and as some big tracks ("Honky Tonk Women" and "Jumpin Jack Flash") never made their way onto Stones albums of the period, this is the only way for you to get the original recordings unless you want to start venturing into other compilations.
This 2 LP 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.
On its initial release, Hot Rocks sold well, not only as a unique compilation but also as a panorama of the 1960s.
Rolling Stones - Under my Thumb
A rare LIVE performance from the early days. By '66, RSG were permitting those - although artists who relied on heavy studio production still mimed. But Mick and the boys were ROCK 'N' ROLL - they didn't NEED no stinkin' studio production
Brian Jones was a genius..
..brian jones made the stones
Rolling Stones - Satisfaction
voted #2 BEST song of all time By Rolling stone Magazine
This song is the best diss on the advertising industry. "That man comes on to tell me how white my shirts can be. But he can't be a man cos he doesn't smoke the same cigarettes as me". Classic! :-D
The Rolling Stones - You Can't Always Get What You Want
what I like about "you can't always get what you want" is that it actually tells you something about life. A bit like "let it be" by the Beatles. It takes some of us a long time to learn these lessons!
