This two-LP set is both a lot more and a bit less than what it seems. It is seven years worth of mostly very high-charting and all influential and important songs, leaving out some singles in favor of well-known album tracks, and in the process, giving an overview not just of the Rolling Stones hits but of their evolving image. One hears them change from loud RB-inspired rockers covering others songs Time Is on My Side into originators in their own right Satisfaction then into tastemakers and style-setters with a particularly decadent air Get Off of My Cloud, 19th Nervous Breakdown and finally into self-actualized rebel-poets Jumpin Jack Flash, Midnight Rambler and Shaman-like symbols of chaos. On its initial release, Hot Rocks sold well, not only as a unique compilation but also as a panorama of the 1960s. The only flaw was that it didn t give a good look at the Stones full musical history, ignoring their early blues period and the psychedelic era. There are also some anomalies in Hot Rocks history for the collector the very first pressings included an outtake of Brown Sugar featuring Eric Clapton that was promptly replaced and the original European CD version, issued as two separate discs on the Decca label, was also different from its American counterpart, featuring a version of Satisfaction mastered in stereo and putting the guitars on separate channels for the first time. Those musicologist concerns aside, this is still an exciting assembly of material.

d The records are apparently pressed on a beautiful, thick, inflexible vinyl, which was usually used for the first or very early pressings. Usually, the sound on such thick vinyl pressings is full-bodied, vivid, and even dramatic. Do not expect to obtain such a majestic analog sound from a digital recording
e Of course, this is a full-bodied ANALOG recording, and not an inferior, digital recording
COVER IS STRONG NEAR MINT, STILL SEALED AND COVERED IN ITS ORIGINAL SHRINK WRAP
