Biography

The Rolling Stones were formed in London in April 1962 by Brian Jones (guitar, harmonica), Ian Stewart (piano), Mick Jagger (lead vocals, harmonica, guitar), and Keith Richards (guitar, vocals). Bassist Bill Wyman and drummer Charlie Watts completed the early line-up. R&B and blues cover songs dominated the Rolling Stones' early material, but their repertoire has always included rock ...

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

One of the Stones' most beloved albums, 1969's Let It Bleed was a benchmark for several reasons. First, founding guitarist Brian Jones died during the recording process. Second, the Stones take their last significant look at pure blues (Robert Johnson's spooky "Love in Vain") and country ("Country Honk", the two-stepping alter ego of "Honky Tonk Women") before folding both styles into a cohesive rock & roll vision. Third, it contains some of the band's most eerie hits, such as the flame-enveloped "Gimme Shelter", the drug-reality anthem "Monkey Man", the epic "You Can't Always Get What You Want" and Mick Jagger's menacing "Midnight Rambler". - -Steve Knopper

5.0 out of 5 stars The zenith of the Stones' work. 1 Nov 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This collection represents the best album the Rolling Stones ever made; some achievement given the competition (Sticky Fingers, Exile on Main St.), and the circumstances recently after the death of Brian Jones.
Of the nine tracks, there is barely a weak link (only the ill-advised Country Honk fails to hit the mark), and many represent classics. From the impassioned Gimme Shelter, assertive Live With Me and menacing Midnight Rambler, through to the glorious closer, You Can't Always Get What You Want, this represents one of the most consistently brilliant records ever released.
It surpasses much, if not all, of the material released by such other "great" sixties bands as the Beatles, Doors and Greatful Dead, while still maintaining an air of carefree authenticity. If there is one Rolling Stones album, or indeed one sixties album that you simply must own, this is it. An absolute classic from start to finish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic blues-rock with a dash of country 24 Aug 2013
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
While others argue about the sound quality of various re-issues, I'm very happy with the 2002 version. I don't take the advice in the booklet to play it loud, because I live in a house of multiple occupation and not all of those who would hear it if I did are Stones fans. But I love the album even at normal volumes.

The set opens with Gimmie shelter, a song that should be familiar to most people, which is followed by the only non-original song on the album. Love in vain, a cover of a blues song by Robert Johnson, features Ry Cooder as guest musician playing mandolin.

Next up is Country honk, a song better known as Honky-tonk women, under which title it is the most famous song here. Byron Berline is the guest musician here, playing fiddle. The remaining songs are all great, wiith my favorites among them being Midnight rambler and You can't always get what you want.

This is a great album from 1969 with plenty of variety among its nine tracks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hangs together pretty well 1 Dec 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album, like Black and Blue, saw the Stones effectively reduced to a 4-piece. Keith has to work that much harder and it shows in some strong songs.
"Gimmie Shelter" is not only, in my opinion, the best Stones song ever, but also one of the best songs ever. It is simply stunning. "Love In Vain" has a nice feel to it, although I rarely warm to Stones covers (apart from the adolescent charm of the early covers on their first and third albums). "Country Honk" is an uptempo country track that feels right and not contrived, while "Live With Me" showed the Stones with a snarl and contempt that was was still convincing when they were in their mid 20's. "Let It Bleed" is another great track and was written in the period when Jagger's lyrics still had resonance and feel. "Midnight Rambler" is good but not as great as it is sometimes made out to be. I think it is sometimes praised more for its concept than for the song itself. "You Got The Silver" is an atractive Keith song, rendered above average by Brain Jones's last contribution to the band on autoharp. "Monkey Man" I used to think was just filler, but my view has changed and I now think it is the Stones experimenting with heavy rock (as The Beatles did with Helter Skelter) and pulling it off. Finally, "You Can't Always Get What You Want" is another classic, which I can see in years to come being sung by professional choirs as a "traditional" staple.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic! 12 Oct 2000
Format:Audio CD
Is there a better opening song to an album than Gimme Shelter! I don't think so. Let It Bleed has Keith Richards playing 95% of all guitars due to the exit of Brian Jones. Listen to Love in Vain, Monkey Man, You Got The Silver, to name but a few, to show what a versatile guitarist Keith is. (Keith discovered Open G Tuning which was used by old blues guitarist's. Keith turned it into a whole new way of playing guitar, which changed the sound of rock 'n roll for ever) If you appreciate excellent guitar work and want to buy a great blues-rock album, you'll love this. Total Quality!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Version Yet 26 April 2014
Format:Blu-ray Audio|Verified Purchase
I have the original vinyl album, the CD, the SACD and now this Blu-Ray Version. This is my favorite Rolling Stones album, and I have listened to it many times in its different formats.This is, hands down, the best yet. Every detail of the music is prominent. I cannot praise it enough. Just listen to the guitar at the beginning of "Love in Vain." You will be convinced that this disc is worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the three best Stones albums. 11 Nov 2002
By Jason Parkes #1 HALL OF FAME
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Following great albums like Aftermath, Satanic Majesties Request & Beggars Banquet, the Stones went to another place with Let it Bleed. This album ranks along with Sticky Fingers and Exile on Main St as one of their best albums- that time when they were dangerous, had Mick Taylor & Ry Cooder on hand and there was all that Altamont business.
Each track is great, some will be familiar to those who've seen Goodfellas (Monkey Man is used along with Memo from Turner from Performance in the helicopter scene), while Gimme Shelter turned up in Casino. Country Honk demonstrates the influence of Gram Parsons (and bizarrely has Nanette Newman singing on it!)- though the epic Midnight Rambler and the Burrito-inflected Let it Bleed are my fave tracks (sorry, but I'm allergic to the last track...).
Let it Bleed is a great, great album and it is nice to see the Stones back catlogue getting a decent reissue- this album sounds fabulous; a must have!
