The Rolling Stones spent much of the sixties in the shadow of the Beatles and, with regards to their respective albums, perhaps deservedly so. However, as this 2-disc retrospective proves, they were every bit as important as their clean-cut contemporaries.
To its credit, Hot Rocks is weighted very much in favour of their late sixties output, which was undoubtedly their best work. Of the early sixties singles, the inclusion of the likes of Time Is On My Side and Heart Of Stone seems a little strange, at the expense of more historically important cuts such as Not Fade Away or It's All Over Now. However, these tracks do lend to the overall mood of the album, so it's a small gripe.
From the opening riff of Satisfaction, we are taken on a breathtaking ride through the sixties according to the World's Greatest Rock N Roll Band. Paint It Black, Honky Tonk Women, Brown Sugar. Every track is pure gold. Sympathy For The Devil, Gimme Shelter, the huge, orchestral You Can't Always Get What You Want, and finally, the lovely country ballad, Wild Horses.
Quite simply put, this CD is brilliant, and I cannot praise it highly enough. It is easily the finest collection of popular rock songs ever gathered together onto one volume, and that includes the Beatles equivalent Red and Blue albums. The real question you are now facing, is whether you should buy it now or five minutes ago. So go on, what are you waiting for?

First released Stateside in January 1972, this has to be the best Stones compliation album ever and if you only choose to have one Stones cd in your collection than this would have to be it.Nearly all of the classics of their Decca years are included here encompassing their poignant and soulful ballads ("Time Is On My Side", "As Tears Go By", "Heart Of Stone", "Ruby Tuesday"), through ascerbic laddish rockers ("Satisfaction", "Get Off Of My Cloud"), through adroit misogyny ("Play With Fire", "19th Nervous Breakdown", "Under My Thumb"), to purveyors of something altogether darker ("Jumpin' Jack Flash", "Sympathy for the Devil", "Midnight Rambler"), which reached it's apotheosis in the bloody mayhem of the infamous free concert at the Altamont Speedway in December 1969.Which is really where this collection leaves off, the two gems from 1971; "Brown Sugar" and "Wild Horses" were recorded a couple of years earlier but were delayed from release for contractual reasons.
If I have a beef over this particular cd it is very specifically centred on the sound quality, or rather lack of it. In the old days when cd's were a new phenomenon, U.K. purchasers of "Hot Rocks" were treated to stunning stereo tracks of these golden goodies, including a previously unreleased stereo take of "Satisfaction"and other gems such as "Heart of Stone" and "Play With Fire" which were crystalline in their depth and clarity.In fact this release of "Hot Rocks", which came as two separate cd's boasted all the tracks bar two - "As Tears Go By" and "19th Nervous Breakdown" in glorious stereo.

If you even consider yourself a Rolling Stones person; then this is a must. I had the cassette for years and it finally saw its day. "shame" ; but I didn't hesitate to long, and ordered this one. For a 5'er you can't go wrong

This review is purely for anybody interested in buying this as an SACD. Amazon's description of this product is misleading. It is a DSD remastered CD only. My SACD player does not recognise it as an SCAD nor I imagine would anybody else's. If you are buying it purely as a CD it seems a perfectly decent remaster. I wish Amazon would take more care in its descriptions. I believe there has been a genuine SACD version of Hot Rocks but this is not it!

If you ever want an overview of some of the greatest songs the stones made during theire first magic decade, this album is it. It's wonderful to hear the playfulness of the songs and the unmistakable rolling stones groove.

I have two quibbles with an otherwise great selection of Stones tracks from their best period; first, the collection could have been called "Scorching Rocks" had the inclusion of "It's All Over Now, Yesterday's Papers, She's A Rainbow" and "Standing In The Shadows", all released during the years that this double album highlights, had been on the discs. Why these great tracks were overlooked is puzzling to say the least. Second, and I may be in a minority here, but I would have preferred the studio recording of "Midnight Rambler" rather than the live version on the second cd. The live version is very good but should be on a 'live' cd - it annoys me when producers mix studio and live recordings on the same cd. Just my preference I guess.

While I am writing a review of this two-CD collection of classic early Stones tracks, Hot Rocks 1964-1971 basically sells itself. You get all of the best songs from one of rock's most successful, long-established groups. These songs are probably older than Keith Richards' wife, but they still stand head and shoulders above most of the music released in the last three decades. On most retrospective collections, people look down the track list and ask why is that song on here or say they don't even remember this or that track. Not so with the Stones' Hot Rocks - each of the 21 song titles is immediately recognizable.
It's great to hear some of the really classic songs any time you want. I'm actually rather sick of Satisfaction because that sometimes seems to be the only Stones track the deejays think they can play. It's a great song, but it's far from the Stones' best. I'll take Paint It Black any day of the week - this song has a uniquely haunting quality that reaches out and grabs you, and many may remember how it was used to perfection in the film Full Metal Jacket. CD number one has a great mix of fast and slow songs: Jagger gets mellow on the likes of Time Is On My Side, Play With Fire, and As Tears Go By, but the truly memorable songs are rocking tracks such as Get Off of My Cloud, Mother's Little Helper, and 19th Nervous Breakdown. CD number two finds the guys a little farther along in their careers, and it's not hard to hear the maturity of the sound as the Stones' begin experimenting with different styles and adding an unquantifiable sense of polish to their work. Jumping Jack Flash, Sympathy For the Devil, Honky Tonk Women, Brown Sugar - we all know and love these.
