The seventies and beyond,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Jump Back-The Best Of The Rolling Stones (Audio CD)
Compared to what they did in the sixties, everything the Rolling Stones did subsequently seems (at least to me) modest by comparison - yet, judged on its own merit, this collection of their later music is easily worth five stars. In fact, Brown sugar and Wild horses (the first two tracks here) were actually recorded in 1969 but not released at the time. The extensive liner notes are taken from an interview with Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.
Although less successful than their sixties music, they continued to have plenty of hits. They didn't reach number one in the UK but they had two American number ones - Angie and Miss you. In the UK, Brown sugar, Tumbling dice, Angie, It's only rock'n'roll but I like it, Fool to cry, Miss you, Emotional rescue and Start me up all made the top ten, while Undercover of the night and a cover of Harlem shuffle both came close. All those hits are here although there is one serious omission, Far away eyes - it was released as the B-side of Miss you but the single was later credited as a double-A side.
My favorite tracks from this album are Tumbling dice (later covered by Linda Ronstadt on her classic album, Simple dreams), Miss you, Brown sugar and Wild horses.
This compilation is (as I write this) the only compilation of Rolling Stones music covering the seventies and beyond that does not also cover the sixties. (Note that the double CD, Forty licks, covers their whole career.) As such, this is an ideal companion to a collection of their early work (in my case, the triple CD London years).
