5.0 out of 5 stars An apt titleI, 24 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rolled Gold + (MP3 Download)
I have to admit to getting a bit sick of the fanboys/girls on Amazon dishing out 5 stars to everything and then throwing hissy fits when another reviewer is evil enough to pass critisism.

However, Rolled Gold is deserving of 5 stars. If you're not familiar with the Rolling Stones this is a great place to start. All the classics between 1963 and 1971 are there:- Paint It Black, Satisfaction, Gimmie Shelter, Street Fighting Man, Sympathy For The Devil, Honky Tonk Woman, Jumping Jack Flash, Get Of Of My Cloud etc etc.

Other terrific inclusions are the fantastic She's A Rainbow and 2000 Light Years From Home. These songs saved the album, Their Satanic Majesties Request from being a complete duffer.

How great to also have the US single Play With Fire and the quasi Beatles Tell Me. The Chuck Berry classic Carol is also there. Legend has it that Chuck was jealous of the Stones because they could do his songs better then he did.

One of my favourites is I Wanna Be Your Man, which was written by Lennon/McCartney in a matter of minutes and given to The Rolling Stones. They take it and turn it into a snarling, foot tapping, semi classic. Listen to Brian Jones guitar break. Surely one of the first heavy metal guitar solos.

Another wonderful song in No Expectations. Brian Jones's was being edged out of the group at this time, but his slide guitar work on this track shows how hugely he contributed to the Stones

Perhaps a couple of mini quibbles. Yesterdays Papers and Dandilion are pretty poor songs by Stones standards. I'd rather have had something like Back Street Girl and The Spider And The Fly.

Overall though a worthy package.
