BBC Review

Poised, once more, to unleash the behemoth that is 'The Rolling Stones on tour' upon the world, it's time to cast an eye over the CVs of Messrs Jagger, Richards, Watts, Wyman and all the other naughty boys that never grew up. 'For the first time ever!' yells the sticker on the cover - but why? Do the racks not groan with innumerable compilations of Richmond's finest? Ah yes, but none have pulled off the trick of spanning those pesky label changes. This time it's the full picture...

After (approximately) forty years of dancing with Mr D, the Glimmer Twins and Co. have not only rattled the cages of the establishment but, in refusing (with one famous exception) to go down in a blaze of hell raising glory, have become as much pillars of society (to quote ''Respectable'', shamefully omitted here) as those who sought to silence them. Arise Sir Mick, indeed. So, while Mick Jagger's famous marketing savvy undoubtedly accounts for this collection, it's still important as a reminder of the days when each new release was easily as important as any of the Fab Four's.

From the bolshy rhythm guitar intro of ''Street Fighting Man'' the synapses are instantly beaten into a realisation (or re-awakening) that these pasty West London boys virtually wrote the blueprint for hard rock in the 60s and 70s. So much here goes beyond mere R 'n' B. These are archetypes. How many garage-punk bands based their entire careers on the fuzz psych-out of ''Satisfaction''? How many wasted but wasteful wannabes have attempted to emulate the louche pharmaceutical jive of ''Honky Tonk Women'' or ''Tumbling Dice''? Even the paisley nonsense of ''She's A Rainbow'' still echoes on in the work of, say, The Flaming Lips.

CD one has (and this is astounding) NO FILLER WHATSOEVER. Every track still shines like a grubby diamond. CD two fares less well - the post-Emotional Rescue era stuff, while efficient, falls into a more lackadaisical groove-driven formula, though stuff like ''Undercover (Of The Night)'' still packs a punch. There's plenty to get your teeth into however: Tracks such as ''Fool To Cry'' and ''It's Only Rock 'n' Roll'', lambasted at the time of release, now sound fresher and more heartfelt than any of today's lame copyists while ''Miss You'' from their last truly great album, Some Girls, proves that when they lost Bill Wyman they lost a vital part of their rhythmic backbone.

Four new tracks fare perfectly well, though the closer ''Losin' My Touch'' featuring Richard's groggy vocals actually has the power to tug at the most grizzled of heartstrings. An entire essay could be written on the omissions (''Little Red Rooster'', ''We Love You'', ''Time Is On My Side'' etc. etc.) and while the booklet has a fine selection of photos some kind of Stalinism seems to exist in the Stones camp whereby only one picture of Mick Taylor is included, despite his presence during what many cite as their classic years. But minor gripes aside, this first comprehensive look at all eras of satisfaction-seeking does a mighty fine job. Its a gas, gas gas...

The wait is finally over, and for my patience i was justly rewarded! As soon as you hear the first strains of street fighting man you praise the wonders of digital remastering technology! The track listings really do speak for themselves and Licks pales Jump Back into insignificance. The two CDs really are what it says on the label - the definitive Stones collection. With early classics from the London Years of the band - Get Offa My Cloud, Satisfaction, Jumpin Jack Flash and Sympathy for the Devil - its worth buying just to be able to listen to these sounding better than they did first time around!
Combine these with other rock master tunes no stones fan is without - Start Me Up, Brown Sugar, It's Only Rock n Roll to name a very few, and then mix with the new offerings from the greatest rock band ever to walk the planet (I personally reccommend Keef's track Losing My Touch - the last word of the album and boy does he put it well!). Overall the best of the best of the best from the cream of rock and roll, sounding better than ever (if that's possible!) A DEFINITE must have for any respected fan, but also for anyone who doesn't remember it all first time around! Just one word of warning - get those air guitars tuned - it's infectiously rocky! Bring on the UK tour!

Criticising the Stones is almost impossible, so I'll attempt to confine myself to an objective assessment of this product. Disc 1 is gorgeous - an hour or so that provides you with a near-perfect guide to just why we listen to rock, fantastically crisp remasters of the Stones from their beginnings as a blues band via their flirtation with the dark side to the end of the sixties. This thing's worth your money if only for "Paint It Black". Disc 1 is a textbook, a manifesto, an unmissable, vivid, vital document of a band that defined what the snarling beast called rock could and should be.
Oh, and then there's Disc 2. Well, to be honest, they playlisted it very well - about fifteen minutes in a torpor descended and the sounds of a band going through the motions - for thirty years - took over. Contains a slightly different selection of later tracks to "Jump Back", again seemingly remastered rather admirably, but I wouldn't advise anyone to listen to both discs back to back. In isolation Disc 2 sounds fine, but it's infinitely depressing played after the sheer power and grandeur of disc 1.
There's some new material that's..... well, celebrity pub rock, really. I've heard better down my local of a Sunday afternoon, but it's beautifully recorded celebrity pub rock. Treat as filler, I think.
So, a representative and faithful (and fairly "warts and all", but most of the warts are on Disc 2) compilation of the Stones' output, but an inevitable part of that is accepting that fame and drink and drugs and endless touring and no Brian meant that they were never quite the same band again....
If only for Disc 1, unmissable. Think of Disc 2 as a bonus and it's still damn good value.

Rolling Stones are quite simply one of the most famous and influential bands ever, up there with The Beatles, Pink Floyd etc. If, like me, you are interested in them, then get this. It spans their entire career (well, up to 2002) from their '60s heyday when they churned out such classics as 'Satisfaction' and 'Sympathy For The Devil' to the '00s when they churned out such classics as 'Don't Stop'. If you get just one Rolling Stones album, then get this. All the songs here are brilliant, and I mean that.

Of course, there are rock 'n' roll classics such as 'Satisfaction', 'Jumpin' Jack Flash, 'Honky Tonk Woman' and 'Brown Sugar', but their softer songs, such as 'Gimme Shelter' and 'Wild Horses' are beautiful; they are two of my favourite songs. Keith Richards writes, along with Jimmy Page, the best riffs ever, his range is great, and complemented perfectly by Mick Jagger's swaggering vocal performances. Charlie Watts isn't exactly a virtuoso drummer, but holds the beat brilliantly. Those who have come and gone over the years - Brian Jones, Mick Taylor, Bill Wyman, Ron Wood - they can all be heard here.

This is the definitive Rolling Stones compilation. Don't hesitate,don't read on - buy it and love it.
