Rolling Stones

Every thread ever made about the Stones seems to burn out and die off much too quickly. They're legends! I mean we've got huge threads on lots of classic rock bands but ones on the Stones never stay very long.

So getting things going...

What era of the Stones is your favourite? Be it record-wise, touring-wise, looks-wise, whatever.

For me it's the post-Brian Jones pre-Ronnie Wood era musically, like 1969 - 1974. But I really like the current line-up performance wise.

I'm a fan of the Exile on Mainstreet era with Mick Taylor on guitar. His playing fits so well with the band. I would say even better than Woody's does.

My favourites are from Keith was on his own with stuff like Gimme Shelter and You Can't Always Get What You Want(studio). After that, Brian Jones era easily.

Considering that the Beatles are and have been my favourite band for a long time now, I never really gave the Rolling Stones a really listening too (of course, I know some of their most well known stuff).

Which album do think I should start with? Or would it be better just to get a "Best Of" compilation?

Am i the only one that always gets overwhelmed when you go searching for a RS CD? There's so many, and so many of the playlists are so similar, I just get confused.

I like Tattoo You alot, personally.

Mhmm, same here. Exile On Main St. & Get Yer Ya Yas Out are also some of my favorites.

nothing beats Let it Bleed. The instrumental part in monkey man is perfect harmony. And Live with me is just such a nasty bad to the bone rock n' roll song.

this is cool:

I second the comments about sticky fingers and exile. Mick Taylor really brought the best out of Keith. I wanted to go see them at the o2 arena but tickets were 100 and i was poor

For me, it doesn't get any better than Beggars Banquet. Definitely one of their more bluesy albums.

Start with 'Let It Bleed' or perhaps 'Exile On Main St.' I wouldn't start a best of though, you need to get the full effect of a Stones record. 'Some Girls' is a thought as well.

Mick Taylor and Keith are so different with their styles, but I always felt that it was a great fit nonetheless.

Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out is one of the best live albums ever.

Mick Taylor and Keith Richards had some great guitar chemistry but I think he's better friends with Ron and it comes out stronger in the music. The interplay on Woods-era tunes is really impressive I always thought. 'Beast Of Burden' being a good example off the top of my head.

Oh and I just found a Mick Jagger & Lenny Kravitz cover of the Bill Withers classic 'Use Me Up' and I was just wondering if anybody knew when this was done? I wouls guess around 2001 when Mick was doing Goddess In The Doorway but I'm not entirely sure.

Sticky Fingers and Beggars Banquet. I can't really choose between the two. After that, get Let It Bleed and Exile on Main Street. After them, get Aftermath, Some Girls and Tatoo You. If you want to get the rest, get 'em! A greatest hits compilation may also do for some of the early hits (Jumpin' Jack Flash, Satisfaction etc.)

I know they've reissued a lot of the older records, so you can get singles like 'Satisfaction' on full albums now.

Exile on Main St. is one of the most finely crafted pieces of rock in history.

It took a while to really stick with me 'cause the tempos are slower and the tracks are dense, but once I heard it a few times I fell in love.
