Many Rolling Stones fans do not like Mick Jagger's solo efforts, either because they find them too commercial or because Mick's solo career almost broke up the Stones. Both statements are arguably true. Mick's solo work does occasionally digress from his blues/rock roots into disco or hard pop. Some of his solo work isn't very good, either. And the solo career almost broke up the World's Greatest Rock and Roll Band.

That caveat having been aired, if you like Mick Jagger as an artist and a musician, you will not be let down by this new and long-overdue collection. Rolling Stones purists will probably reject it, but as a die-hard Stones fan I have long made an effort to listen to all the band-mates' individual works as well, including Jagger's. Though the solo efforts are uneven, each of the Stones has put out some good stuff. Mick Taylor's albums are enjoyable, Keith Richard's albums with the Xpensive Winos rock pretty hard, Charlie Watts indulges his passion for jazz with his band, Ronnie Wood's work with the Faces and his solo work is worth listening to, and Bill Wyman's Rythm Kings continue to put out simply amazing blues/rock. The fact is, the Rolling Stones, as a group, are simply greater than the sum of their individual parts. None of the Stones makes the same great music individually as he does when he gets together with the other guys in the band and they work together.

Mick has always had an eye for current trends in music. He got interested in the funk sounds of the sixties and the disco sounds of the seventies, and this shows heavily in his solo work. Some of his dance tunes remain the finest of the era.

The original Bad Boy of rock n' roll is 64 this year. Agile, full of energy, Mick Jagger shows no apparent signs of slowing down. In addition to a plethora of records with the Rolling Stones, Jagger has also recorded four solo albums with some of the biggest names in rock biz (not surprisingly.) Enter stage left- Jeff Beck, Pete Townshend, and Dave Stewart (of the Eurthymics). With this talented group behind him, on October 2nd, 2007 Jagger released a `Best Of' the four solo albums.

The four albums that these songs are culminated from are: "She's the Boss" (1985); "Primitive Cool" (1987); "Wandering Spirit" (1993); "Goddess In the Doorway" (2003). "She's the Boss" got extensive airplay from MTV propelling the single: "Just Another Night" to #12 on the charts. Other singles were released from various other albums, but amazingly none of them charted better than 30 in the United States. It just shows the sorry state of music in America when boy-rock singles and crap-rap can totally dominate the charts while omitting the singles from famous stars such as Jagger. Surely ANY of the songs on ANY of these albums deserve to be on the charts if those weepy teen schlock-songs can make it. My biggest knock on this cd is the actual selection of the songs that DID make it. Noticeable by their absence is the hard rocker "Lonely at the Top" which opened his She's the Boss cd (+ the title cut would have been nice, too.) Again the song selectors missed the boat by not including: 'Say You Will' or 'Kow Tow' which both have classic pop-rock melodies. Take away a rating star for the ommissions.

Several songs from the 1993 masterpiece of the four: "Wandering Spirit" are on this "Very Best of CD.

The songs included in this set are all good and the videos are cool, especially the Jagger/Tosh SNL apperance, but I would have included the songs, Lonely At The Top from She's The Boss, and Throwaway from Primitive Cool.

well, i think the album is pretty good. the songs form wandering spirit (put me in the trash, don't tear me up, sweet thing and evening gown) are great. memo from turner is a gem and os are checkin' upon my baby and too many cooks spoil the soup.
i am much less convinced by don't call me up, charmed life and joy. but i never quite liked goddess in the doorway.
what surprises me is what was left out of this record: i would have used either party doll or thowaway from primitive cool instead of let's work. i was surprised by the fact that hard woman from she's the boss did not make it on this record. and was equally surprised to see that wandering spirit, which is one of the musidcally interesting things taht jagger has written over the years, was not included in this album.
this said, the record is fine and MJ does his best in the blues/rock-blues tunes.

When you think of Mick Jagger, we all think Rolling Stones and history! When we think of Mick Jagger the solo artist, we think a little harder and say...oh yes 80's Dancing In The Street with Mick Jagger. Who could forget the video? Not really a solo, but we think again and we think even earlier in the 70's when he did another duet with Raggae Peter Tosh Walk And Don't Look Back. Still no real solo song. Oh yes...Ruthless People( not even included here!!) theme from the hilarious 80's movie with Bette Midler (Beast Of Burden video buddy) and Danny Devito. Then he also hit big with Just Another Night and it's follow ups Lucky In Love and Let's Work.

There are quite a few MJ gems here that may not have been poular but are worthy of this purchase. Check out the funky Too Many Cooks and Sweet Thing falsetto. A hot duet with Bono Joy, Dave Stewart Old Habbits Die Hard. Also includes Memo From Turner and God Gave Me Everything. A fun retrospect in the MJ solo history.that's Mick Jagger not Michael Jackson :)
