I had a listen to Banquet and I like it - I'd only known Sympathy for the devil before and Street fighting man. I like the bluesy, acoustic feel of the album.

Thanks in advance!

This thread inspired me to delve into my Stones albums. I wound up putting together a comp, covering 1968-1974. This is where the legend of the band really comes from. In this 8 year period, they were as good as or better than anyone in the history of rock music.

It's a remarkable list of songs:

#1:
Rip This Joint
Honky Tonk Women
Tumbling Dice
Dance Little Sister
Street Fighting Man
Star Fucker
Sweet Virginia
Monkey Man
Salt Of The Earth
Can't You Hear Me Knocking
Midnight Rambler
Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo (Heartbreaker)
Sweet Black Angel
It's Only Rock 'N Roll (But I Like It)
Dead Flowers
Winter
You Can't Always Get What You Want
Moonlight Mile

#2:
Sympathy For The Devil
Sway
100 Years ago
Wild Horses
Loving Cup
No Expectations
Gimme Shelter
Silver Train
Ain't Too Proud To Beg
Angie
Live With Me
Jumpin' Jack Flash
Factory Girl
Bitch
Torn & Frayed
If You Can't Rock Me
Till The Next Goodbye
Brown Sugar
Shine A Light

The list of classic singles is astounding. Yet the real genius of this band is created through the album tracks. "Shine A Light", "Moonlight Mile", "Salt Of The Earth", "Sweet Black Angel", "Winter". The moods are very atypical Stones. Reflective and delicate are hardly common Stones traits, but they manage to pull it off in grand style.

And as far as good olde "Rock 'n Roll" is concerned, well, "Rip This Joint" pretty much IS Friday night.

Beggar's Banquet remains my favorite, followed closely by Let It Bleed and Sticky Fingers. Goat's Head Soup is really criminally overlooked, perhaps because it came in the wake of the mammoth Exile. It is inexcusable that Heartbreaker was left off of 40 Licks, and the same can be said for Waiting on a Friend.

I've never been impressed with their "Best Of" albums. Their best stuff was always album tracks.

If you're looking for an album, then Sticky Fingers definitely. I'm not a big Stones fan at all, but Sticky Fingers is just a classic. One of those great albums that you put on and don't want to skip at all, just want to start all over again.

1968-1974 is six years.

And I take issue with the statement that the Stones were as good as or better than anyone in the history of rock music. I think that's ridiculous. I think the Beatles 1966-1970, Led Zeppelin 1968-1973, U2 1987-1993, among others, blow the Stones 1968-1974 out of the water.

Well, we're both wrong, it's 7 years.

1968
1969
1970
1971
1972
1973
1974

I'm not gonna argue with you. You haven't heard 90% of the music we're gonna argue over.

It's a moot point.

You really CAN'T go wrong with any of the BIG 4. I'm really not even a Stones fan, but I can comfortably listen to any of those albums through and through. Sticky Fingers is probalby the best to start out with. Exile on Main Street is my personal least favorite out of the 4 though. But really, you can't go wrong.

If you are looking for a greatest hits cd buy Hot Rocks. It covers the years 1964 - 1971 and is great.

I used to have all the records

I love most of what has been mentioned above and the only one that I would add is 'Some Girls' as it continues to be my favourite Stones record.
