Product Description

Product Description

2CD-REMASTERED-EAN 042284447522

Amazon.co.uk

It's the rare greatest-hits album that takes on a life of its own. Generally, best-of collections are superseded by updated retrospectives. Hot Rocks is one of the rare exceptions to the rule. Originally released in 1972, it instantly became the Stones intro of choice, elbowing aside Big Hits, High Tide and Green Grass and Through the Past Darkly. Why? It happened to hit the racks when Mick and company were at their creative peak. The 21 tracks found here represent seven years of dizzying growth. From "Time is on My Side" through "Satisfaction" and "Let's Spend the Night Together", on to Sticky Fingers's "Brown Sugar" and "Wild Horses", Hot Rocks never lets up. The likes of Sucking in the '70s and Jump Back come and go, but this Stones overview will not be moved. --Steven Stolder

The Rolling Stones spent much of the sixties in the shadow of the Beatles and, with regards to their respective albums, perhaps deservedly so. However, as this 2-disc retrospective proves, they were every bit as important as their clean-cut contemporaries.
To its credit, Hot Rocks is weighted very much in favour of their late sixties output, which was undoubtedly their best work. Of the early sixties singles, the inclusion of the likes of Time Is On My Side and Heart Of Stone seems a little strange, at the expense of more historically important cuts such as Not Fade Away or It's All Over Now. However, these tracks do lend to the overall mood of the album, so it's a small gripe.
From the opening riff of Satisfaction, we are taken on a breathtaking ride through the sixties according to the World's Greatest Rock N Roll Band. Paint It Black, Honky Tonk Women, Brown Sugar. Every track is pure gold. Sympathy For The Devil, Gimme Shelter, the huge, orchestral You Can't Always Get What You Want, and finally, the lovely country ballad, Wild Horses.
Quite simply put, this CD is brilliant, and I cannot praise it highly enough. It is easily the finest collection of popular rock songs ever gathered together onto one volume, and that includes the Beatles equivalent Red and Blue albums. The real question you are now facing, is whether you should buy it now or five minutes ago. So go on, what are you waiting for?

First released Stateside in January 1972, this has to be the best Stones compliation album ever and if you only choose to have one Stones cd in your collection than this would have to be it.Nearly all of the classics of their Decca years are included here encompassing their poignant and soulful ballads ("Time Is On My Side", "As Tears Go By", "Heart Of Stone", "Ruby Tuesday"), through ascerbic laddish rockers ("Satisfaction", "Get Off Of My Cloud"), through adroit misogyny ("Play With Fire", "19th Nervous Breakdown", "Under My Thumb"), to purveyors of something altogether darker ("Jumpin' Jack Flash", "Sympathy for the Devil", "Midnight Rambler"), which reached it's apotheosis in the bloody mayhem of the infamous free concert at the Altamont Speedway in December 1969.Which is really where this collection leaves off, the two gems from 1971; "Brown Sugar" and "Wild Horses" were recorded a couple of years earlier but were delayed from release for contractual reasons.
If I have a beef over this particular cd it is very specifically centred on the sound quality, or rather lack of it. In the old days when cd's were a new phenomenon, U.K. purchasers of "Hot Rocks" were treated to stunning stereo tracks of these golden goodies, including a previously unreleased stereo take of "Satisfaction"and other gems such as "Heart of Stone" and "Play With Fire" which were crystalline in their depth and clarity.In fact this release of "Hot Rocks", which came as two separate cd's boasted all the tracks bar two - "As Tears Go By" and "19th Nervous Breakdown" in glorious stereo.

This review is purely for anybody interested in buying this as an SACD. Amazon's description of this product is misleading. It is a DSD remastered CD only. My SACD player does not recognise it as an SCAD nor I imagine would anybody else's. If you are buying it purely as a CD it seems a perfectly decent remaster. I wish Amazon would take more care in its descriptions. I believe there has been a genuine SACD version of Hot Rocks but this is not it!

This claims to be a remastered 2-CD edition but the sound quality isn't great at all. It is striking how different these songs sound compared to the same songs released on the compilation, Grrr! For sound quality Grrr! is by far the better compilation to buy although this double albums also has it merits. For a start the tracks haven't been 'tidied' like they have on Grrr! - on Grrr! many of the tracks have been trimmed and tidied up losing from 2 to 20 seconds from the ends or beginnings. Also, on this album the song 'You Can't Always Get What You Want' is the original long 7:33 version. On Grrr! it's 4:51 and the sound difference is like chalk and cheese (Grrr! being very clear). But I prefer this long mono remaster version to the shorter remaster on Grrr! though.

Just a note about packaging: This double cd is packaged in the older chunky style double cd cases...so it's quite bulky being twice the width of one CD case. I mention it because it's a pet hate of mine as they take up shelf space unnecessarily.

By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 19 Nov. 2002
Format: Audio CD
This two-CD set provides seven years worth of vintage Stones. Compare these delectable tracks to the rock music of today and one wonders where things went wrong in the mainstream. Melodic, meaningful, powerful and innovative, these Stones songs represent everything that is special about rock music. Although there's not one mediocre track here, my favorites include the bluesy Time Is On My Side, Heart Of Stone, Wild Horses and Ruby Tuesday (covered by Melanie Safka among others), the raucous rock of Satisfaction, Get Off My Cloud, Street Fighting Man and Brown Sugar, with songs of social comment (Mother's Little Helper, 19th Nervous Breakdown), and beautiful ballads: As Tears Go By (covered by inter alia Marianne Faithfull), Play With Fire and Paint It Black. The Stones must be the ultimate rock band, more influential than the Beatles in their 4 decades plus consistency and their exploration of the wilder side of life. This is an absolute masterpiece. If an alien came down and asked me to recommend some quality rock music, this album will top my list. It deserves 7 stars!
