 Originally issued in 1972 at the Rolling Stones' absolute creative peak, Hot Rocks 1964-1971 collects 21 iconic and influential tracks spanning seven years worth of rock 'n' roll history. The timeless compilation ranges from breakthrough covers ("Time Is On My Side") to early Jagger/Richards penned classics ("I Can't Get No Satisfaction," "Paint It Black," "Ruby Tuesday") to the string of prototypical late-60s/early-70s Stones' favorites ("Jumpin' Jack Flash," "Sympathy for the Devil," "Honky Tonk Women," "Gimme Shelter," "You Can't Always Get What You Want") all the way up to Sticky Fingers material ("Brown Sugar," "Wild Horses"). 

 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 R&B-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 '60s. The only flaw was that it didn't give a good look at the Stones' full musical history, ignoring their early blues and psychedelic eras. 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. This is an exciting assembly of material.
