Hot

Rocks 1964-1971 was the first Rolling Stones compilation and, almost four decades
later, remains the most significant. Released by Allen Klein’s ABKCO Records, it is The
Rolling Stones’ best-selling album-achieving 1 2-times multiplatinum status (more than 12
million copies!).
Hot Rocks’ 21 tracks trace the development of Jagger and Richards as a songwriting team.
It wasn’t until the band’s sixth studio release, Aftermath, that the Stones fully devoted
themselves to writing their own material; prior to 1966, they were primarily a blues-rock
cover band with a few brilliant self-penned singles. Beginning with the early cover
recording of “Time Is on My Side,” Hot Rocks proceeds chronologically through most of
the biggest hits of the band’s first decade, from “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” to “Let’s
Spend the Night Together” to “Honky Tonk Women.” The compilation leaves room for
important album tracks, such as “Play with Fire,” “Under My Thumb,” and “Gimme
Shelter,” which have become classic rock staples. The album finishes with “Brown
Sugar”-perhaps the pinnacle of blues-drenched rock and roll-and “Wild Horses,” a lyrical
acoustic masterpiece. Hot Rocks solidified The Stones’ reputation as “the world’s greatest
rock and roll band.”
