This is a good coverage of the Stones hits over 50 years, but I have two quibbles. First, many songs are edited down by 1-3 minutes, but there is still room on the CDs for the full length versions of those songs. Why were they edited? Second, the Stones have so many great hits that even 50 songs seems like too few! The point of the CD is to have one song for each year the band has been around, so keep in mind the song choice was driven by total song count, not all the songs worth picking. I wish the 80 song Super Deluxe version of Grrr! were available on its own without all the souvenir crap and $100 price tag. The four CD, 80 song version has just the right depth for a good review of all the Stones hits and slightly deeper tracks. Still, you can't stop at just this CD for the Stones music in your library. You have to get Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers, Exile on Main Street, Some Girls, at the very least to get their best work.
If you don't have a Rolling Stones' greatest hits compilation, it's time to buy one. This is great sound quality. Since I have a complete Rolling Stones' collection, all I downloaded were the two new songs: "Doom and Gloom" and "One More Shot".
Purchased this one and "Doom and Gloom" as I have all of the other songs at least twice! I'm so hoping for a new Stones album...I'd love to see them live but don't know if I want to shell out a zillion bucks for a few tix!! Oh well, we'll see...in the meantime, how about a new album!
