But there are really four Rolling Stones essentials, and it's the greatest string of four albums that any artist has probably ever put out:

1. Beggar's Banquet
2. Let It Bleed
3. Sticky Fingers
4. Exile on Main Street

Even The Beatles didn't have 4 in a row that were as good. The last two are the best but everyone's got their own tastes (Aftermath, while great, is more a collection of songs than a proper album, much like Beatles for Sale). Beggars has much more acoustic material on it. Exile is the most ambitious and that's why it's considered their masterpiece, but Sticky Fingers is more concise in its brilliance. And it has Moonlight Mile.

Enjoy

Lazarus is 100% correct (although I would give a little more credit to Some Girls), those four albums in a row are the pinnacle of rock (and blues and country). But don't let the country comment scare you. The Rolling Stones version of country is 1000 times better than that modern Nashville shit.

THE ROLLING STONES!!!!

Sticky Fingers
Let It Bleed
Exile On Main Street
Tattoo You
Beggar's Banquet
Some Girls
Voodoo Lounge

You can't go wrong with any of those records. Starting with Sticky Fingers and Let It Bleed would be a good idea. There's also another record called Stripped which is a compilation of new recordings of older Stones songs (like Wild Horses and Slipping Away) mixed with amazing live versions of other Stones songs (like Street Fighting man and Dead Flowers). I know you said no compilations but this REALLY would be a great way to start as it has some classics, rarities and many early songs all together in this amazing cd!

My dad used to have Made In The Shade. I played that thing till it was almost worn out. He sold off all his records, and this is part of why he's such a jackass.


Sticky Fingers and Let It Bleed are essential, IMO.

Country didn't suck until Garth Brooks got famous. Old skool country is more bluesy and folksy and less poppy and saccharine.

As a very young boy, I remember my stepfather giving me the Japanese LP version of “Aftermath” (late 60’s). Welcome to Rock n’ Roll son.

This was the first album the Stones wrote 100%. So a landmark.
I love the story of Charlie Watts talking about why “Goin’ Home” is so long (11 minutes), because no one in the studio told them to STOP playing.

So what to get????????????


My buying order would be.
Aftermath
Exile On Main Street
Sticky Fingers
Emotional Rescue

I personally like the early Stones stuff.
Sittin On A Fence
Backstreet Girl
2000 Light Years From Home
Out Of Time
She's A Rainbow
etc.
etc.
I also like the mid 70's Stones as well. Just go explore. There's plenty of great songs by The Rolling Stones.

I've been a stones fan for nearly 11 years. Seen them 3 times in concert and even bought there crap records. The following are must haves for anyone getting into the Stones:

Let It Bleed
Beggars Banquet
Sticky Fingers
Exile On Main Street (Favorite album of all time)

Other Stone albums worth the listen:

Goat Heads Soup (Winter is one my favorite Stone songs )
Its Only Rock N Roll
Black & Blue
Some Girls
Aftermath
Tattoo You
Voodoo Lounge (last decent album)

Stones were so solid through out the late 60's through 70's. After Tatoo You it has pretty much gone down hill.

The Big Four are required. Some Girls is also a must.

For serious fun, look previous to Beggars Banquet.
