February 12 – Wednesday – The Rolling Stones – Hot Rocks 1964-1971 Pt. 1

Rolling Stones - Hot Rocks FrontIn the words of Matthew McConaughey, “All right, all right, all right.” Another double album but it’s all early Stones’ hits, so it’s not too shabby. Their songs don’t really conjure up any specific memories for me except watching them on Ed Sullivan and thinking they would not be invited back if Mick didn’t stop banging the mike stand on the stage. However, you can imagine, or you know the number of metamorphoses a girl undergoes from ages 8 through 15. So I’m kind of all over the place as the record progresses, even though this first disc may only take me to 11.

But this was good – a good workout to good, recognizable and singalongable songs. Yes, this first record of the set goes on the Ram alternative list, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the second one goes along with it. I just really hate liking “Under My Thumb” so much. “Heart of Stone” doesn’t make me happy either.
