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 ...

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

Format: Audio CD
In the truly fantastic and illuminating 2013 movie "20 Feet From Stardom" - one of the great unsung heroes of backing singers MERRY CLAYTON recalls with a giggle being heavily pregnant, hair-curlers in and dragged into a Studio in her mink coat at some ungodly hour in the morning and told to scream "RAPE! MURDER! IT'S JUST A SHOT AWAY..." into a microphone at the top of her formidable lungs for The Rolling Stones. The film isolates her vocal where she went up an extra octave to get the effect they needed - and you can hear her blowing the room out with her power. Mick Jagger - who is also interviewed in the film along with Springsteen and many other rock beneficiaries - recalls it too and smiles wryly - Merry was damn good. In fact perhaps Clayton stood out as much as he did.

But whatever has passed into musical history since - nowadays both are quite rightly proud of the fabulous song "Gimme Shelter" that opens 1969's "Let It Bleed" by The Rolling Stones - what many lifetime fans feel is one of their finest hairy-assed reprobate hours. Merry Clayton would go on to have a short but sadly unnoticed Solo career of her own on Ode/A & M Records - even naming her debut album "Gimme Shelter" after her most famous moment with the grinning English boy (see separate review).

Back to this CD reissue... When the Decca label side of the Stones catalogue first came out on CD in 1986 on London - it was not the greatest moment for the new format. This 2002 reissue acknowledges this and advises that after 'long and painful' searches through tape vaults on both sides of the Atlantic - both time and technology had caught up enough to warrant a proper stab at it again - and man what a result.

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.

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.

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!

from Gimme Shelter to the last track, good stuff. Very difficult to say something that has not been said already, hard to differentiate between the tracks and say this is better than that. Taken overall, none are better than any other, the whole is one perfect album as performed by the Stones, who are one perfect rock band.

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.
