The greatest rock & roll band in the world! I might not have every single track they recorded from 1963 to 1969, but I’m working on it. And I do have more than is listed here. The Stones were one of the bands that taught me that it was wise to seek out British editions of their works; to keep an eye on those B-sides etc.


I could stand a little more illumination on the ’65 – ’67 era of the Stones. The CD boxed set of singles was a good start. Oh, and don’t miss either of Andrew Loog Oldham’s books, “Stoned” and “2Stoned” – essential reading for an serious fan of 60’s Stones.


My favorite Stones single is “Dandelion”, my favorite Stones album is probably the original UK version of “Aftermath” (as long as we can agree to leave “Goin’ Home” out of the equation!).

I desperately need more Stones. All I have is the stellar London Singles box, the German Hot Rocks (with all of the stereo mixes), and the CD Singles from Steel Wheels. Good trash blues B-sides on those! Probably hammered out in 15 minutes. I have some vinyl, but that doesn't count.

My favorite Rolling Stones single? 60s - She's A Rainbow. 70s - You Can't Always Get What You Want - easy!. 80s - Undercover of the Night. Their most post-punk, dub influenced single. Think they heard "Metal Box?"

I've been reading a lot of Stones books lately. Oldham's were great. It was a riot how he modeled himself on Sidney Falco!! Too bad he's a Scientologist. Ron Wood's was a gas, especially considering his plight just scant months after publishing this self-satisfied tome! Oops!! I've read "Stone Alone" years ago. Time for those great coffee table books I keep seeing at the library. Keith Richards' auto bio is allegedly coming down the pike in a few. Hmm.

Jim-san,

Get:

Aftermath (UK vers.)
Between The Buttons
Their Satanic Majesties Request
Beggar's Banquet
Let It Bleed

Alternately, try the "Hot Rocks 2 - Fazed Cookies", as that has lots of great non-LP stuff.

The 70's stuff is not as even. I like "Sticky Fingers" a lot, and each 70's album a little less, afterwards. It all cam back with "Some Girls" (for the next few albums) - but it's an entirely different thang.

I have been fond of some of the post-'93 stuff, too. But I feel like we're talking about a different group, in this case.

Charlie Watts!

Wow, Jim's picks for best Stones singles match exactly!

Ron, you sure picked the "best" period of Stones music, and I agree that the 70s were uneven for them but more good than bad (in my view). Lots of good stuff there, slowing petering out as they went forward.

I remember people complaining on the "Steel Wheels" (aka "wheelchair!") tour of 1989 that they were now far too old to be taken seriously; that was TWENTY YEARS AGO!!

I am kind of sorry I didn't see "Shine a Light" when it was here in IMAX last year. If anyone can get the bag-o-bones band back to anything resembling their former glory, it was probably Scorsese. I'll probably rent it in HD someday.

The Scorsese movie made me laugh. I liked it.
