4.0 out of 5 stars Next best thing
In the wake of the stupid decision to substitute the early UK albums with the US cut-and-paste jobs, this is probably the best (certainly least frustrating) way to listen to the early Stones on CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Next best thing, 11 Mar 2001

This review is from: The Rolling Stones Singles Collection: The London Years (Audio CD)
In the wake of the stupid decision to substitute the early UK albums with the US cut-and-paste jobs, this is probably the best (certainly least frustrating) way to listen to the early Stones on CD. The first two discs supersede the formerly definitive _Through the Past Darkly_ and _High Tide and Green Grass_ with comprehenive singles coverage; however, the third becomes dubious, too many redundancies with _Sticky Fingers_ and _Beggars Banquet_ (worth buying on their own), and unnecessarily drawing on the never-essential _Metamorphisis_. Drop "In Another Land"/"The Lantern," move "Honky Tonk Women" and "Memo from Turner" over to disc two, and this could have been a five-star two-CD set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Compilation, 20 Feb 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: The Rolling Stones Singles Collection: The London Years (Audio CD)
This CD commands 5 stars. Its got everything you'd want from a stones record. Having got all their albums, this was a purchase i made to get some of the great tracks on a few cds. This does it well..
Paint it black, street fighting man, jumpin jack flash, satisfaction, shes a rainbow etc etc, they are all splendid songs. This is definitely worth the money, its a great collection of the singles and the price is very reasonable. Thumbs up all the way for *THE* greatest English Band of them all!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Expensive but packed with memories..., 10 Nov 2000
This review is from: The Rolling Stones Singles Collection: The London Years (Audio CD)
For those seeking a cross section of the Stones' best early period work this album is of limited value, missing - as it does - key tracks from their first albums. For those seeking a compilation of early period "Greatest Hits" it's a fairly expensive luxury. So... why 4 stars?

Easy... if you were living in London when "Come On" was released, if you went to your local record store and played it and it's marvellous "B" side - "I Want To Be Loved" - on your mono, low-fi record player over and over again, if you went back to the store and bought single after single as they were released and put both sides through the same repeat play process, if you still have them in your attic in a lovingly scratched, wholly unplayable state or if you've lost them over the years... then this is all you could ask for.

"B" sides were important then and, with a group like the Rolling Stones you played them, sometimes as much as the "A" sides. Disc One contains all the "B" side classics: "I Want To Be Loved", "Stoned", "Little By Little", "Good Times, Bad Times", "Off The Hook", "Play With Fire" etc. And, while the "B" sides on CD Two and Three are more patchy and less relevant, the A sides on these two CD's are a pretty comprehensive "Greatest Hits" collection in their own right.

So, if you were there and you want to be there again, then CD One is an indispensable memory bank: play it straight through and you can almost hear the 45's dropping down from the multidisk arm. And if you weren't, well this is what it was like!

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding!, 15 Jan 2002
By 
This review is from: The Rolling Stones Singles Collection: The London Years (Audio CD)
If you like the more 'bluesy' period of the Stones' career then this collection is for you - especially some of the early B-sides. Musically I would suggest they are much more talented than the Beatles. 58 timeless Stones classics!

This review is from: The Rolling Stones Singles Collection: The London Years (Audio CD)
Generally very good, has a few tracks that I have not heard before, and some early Stones songs missing that I thought might have been included but well worth the purchase.
