Classic collection of rock and blues from 1968 including the superb opening track 'Sympathy For the Devil' and the punchy 'Street Fighting Man'. 'Jigsaw Puzzle' is a juicy rock excursion whilst 'Stray Cat Blues' is similarly impressive and the final track 'Salt Of The Earth', which has a strong and haunting gospel vibe, is pulsating stuff. The rocky outbursts are beautifully balanced by several shorter forays into classy blues territory with 'No Expectations', 'Dear Doctor' and the percussive feel of 'Factory Girl' all worthy of high praise in my view. Verdict:- A highly enjoyable album with plenty of great material and no real weaknesses. Well worth investing here.

A great Stones album...one of the 4 classics they made in succession in the early 70s.....Factory Girl, Sympathy For The Devi, No Expectations, Street Fighting Man etc....the whole album is tinged with a country, acoustic feel, and all the better for it.

It's loose, it breathes, it has feel and soul..and is a world away from the sh*t you hear on the radio these days.

This is the album where the stones really came into their own , instead of a set of singles and covers.

The album that saved The Rolling Stones career.1967 had been a disappointing year for The Stones-the album Their Satanic Majesties Request and its accompanying single We Love You met with critical disapproval as half baked Sgt. Peppers rip offs plus Jagger and Richards drugs bust could of brought about the end of The Stones.So in 1968 they decided to go back to basics and record a more blues influenced album and the result is this. Songs like Street Fighting Man,Stray Cat Blues,Salt of the Earth and Dear Doctor are all classic Stones songs but even they pale in comparison to the brilliant opening track Sympathy for the Devil which must surely be one of the greatest openers of all time.And then there was that controversial cover....

The ultimate Rolling Stones, with Brian Jones, driving rhythms and classic Stones songs. End of the beginning of the Rolling Stones, before Jagger and Richards were the sole driving forces, and the replacement guitarists led the band into other genre.
