5.0 out of 5 stars Rare Essential Rock Collection March 31, 2008
This collection retailed for $100.00 when first released in 1993.There has never been a better collection of Rock Classics -- probably never will be, what with the difficulties of gaining clearances and gathering the best materials. The seven CDs are divided into the years covered: 1967-69; 1969-70; 1971-73; 1973-77; 1977-82; 1982-86; 1986-92. Enclosed in each CD is a booklet with a capsule history of the music and a complete artist/title list. All of which contain from 15 to 17 tracks, for a total of 110.

Not everyone who was a rock music fan during at least part of the 25 years covered by the seven CDs in this collection will agree on what was the most "essential rock" of this era. Since this collection is associated with Rolling Stone magazine, you would be correct if you assumed that some of the magazine's favorite artists would be included here: Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, The Who, Prince, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Byrds, and Talking Heads. But also here are cuts by Led Zeppelin, a group the magazine generally did not consider to be anything special. The collection includes one #1 hit single, "I Want to Know What Love Is" by Foreigner; many non-hits, such as "The Crystal Ship", the B-side of the Doors #1 smash, "Light My Fire" (which is not included in this collection); some well-regarded efforts that were only available as album tracks; and some selections that are unknown singles by unknown artists to most rock fans, such as "See No Evil" by Television. For most potential buyers it will include some selections they already have on a CD and others they've never heard before. It may even introduce them to some artists they will grow to love. By the way, the sound quality of this collection is uniformly excellent.

OK, just from the very brief snippet that Mama Amazon provides, this is NO "product" from the Rolling Stones(s)>notice that "s" there<, it's (sic) "25 yrs of essential rock" as evidentally selected by those who work at what is now "Pravada-Lite," AKA the embarrassing "Rolling Stone." (singular there, no "s," it's referring to the magazine). Now I'm "fify-something," a bonafide ex-hippie, blah-blah-blah, and from the songs provided in the snippet, there ain't nothing "essential" there. It's basically a bunch of whiny, late sixties San Francisco bands, griping about "the war," and extolling the virtues of "the revolution" that never happened.
