rolling stones

i come from a very anti-stones family. both my parents hated them, especially my mom. therefore the only songs i'm familiar with, are the ones i know from listening to the radio.

i know, in order to claim you enjoy music there are some things you should just know. but i'm admitting to this, and since the band index didn't get me what i wanted, and god forbid i do something intelligent like leave this site and figure anything out for myself....

i don't want to go the route of greatest hits compilations or anything, that's the kind of thing i want to avoid. for that, i can go listen to my local classic rock station.

so, someone tell me where to begin. please.

I have no idea where to begin, my dear, but Some Girls is one of my favorite albums from any artist. I also really enjoy Made in the Shade, which is a hard-to-find hits compilation.

Start with 2 of the greatest Rock and Roll albums ever put to tape:

Exile On Main Street and Sticky Fingers.

Play them loud. Play them often. They're infectious. They're the only Stones records you really need.

I'll send you CDR copies if you like. They're that good.

They did:

Their Satanic Majesties Request (1967)

"She's A Rainbow" is on there...fantastic song in my opinion.


But before they did that, they also experimented with "Aftermath" which is like the Stones's Revolver, all sitars and things like that, songs like Paint It Black, Ruby Tuesday, Mother's Little Helper come from this era..


Aftermath is excellent.

I was introduced to the Rolling Stones by way of Voodoo Lounge and Bridges To Babylon. So you can understand that it took me a long time and a lot of listening to reconcile the Stones with not sucking. The two conditions have simply not existed in the same universe within my lifetime.

But it's true: the Rolling Stones, a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, did not suck and were actually one of the best rock bands of their time, quite a feat considering their time also included the likes of the Beatles and the Doors. You have to hear it to believe it.

Get all the studio albums from Aftermath to Exile On Main Street. If you liked the Beatles' early stuff, get everything before Aftermath too. If you want a live album, get Get Yer Ya-Yas Out too. Some Girls is the best post-Exile album, which doesn't say much, but it's unusually inspired for its context. Everything else is...rocky.

My favorites are Let It Bleed and Her Satanic Majesties Request. The former is their best blues album--the cover of Robert Johnson's "Love In Vain" is probably the best thing they've ever done--and the latter is a surprisingly good take at psychedelia that most people seem to hate.

I'm going to second most of what I've heard here. Don't listen to people who tell you Tattoo You is a great album. Even Some Girls, which has some amazing songs on it, is far from a masterpiece. Of course, Beast of Burden alone is worth $10...

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
