5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive sixties collection, 1 Feb. 2003
This review is from: Singles Collection: The London Years (Audio CD)
The Rolling Stones have had a very long career, but it their sixties music on which their reputation is based, and it is that music which this set focuses on. Originally released as a boxed set, it was later re-released as a triple CD. In 2002, a new re-mastered version of the triple CD was released with improved sound quality.
Their first single was Come on, a cover of a Chuck Berry song. It made the top thirty in Britain. The follow-up single, a cover of the Beatles' I wanna be your man, fared better, just failing to make the British top ten. Next came Not fade away, a cover of a Buddy Holly song but with a Bo Diddley beat. Continuing with covers, this was followed by Its all over now, originally recorded by the Valentinos, a group which included Bobby Womack. In November 1964, Little red rooster (a hitherto obscure blues song) became another cover hit. Like Its all over now, it was a British number one. In 1965, they had phenomenal success with their own self-penned songs. The last time, (I can't get no) Satisfaction and Get off of my cloud were all major international hits. All three were British number ones.
All the above classics are here, plus those that followed including Jumping Jack Flash and Honky tonk women. You also get their versions of songs they wrote but allowed others to have hits with, like As tears go by (Marianne Faithful) and Out of time (Chris Farlowe). Ruby Tuesday was only a B-side but was later covered by Melanie who was very successful with it.
This is an excellent collection of music by one of the most important groups in rock history, when they were at their peak.
