Genre: Rock | Format: Box set | Label: Abkco
The most comprehensive anthology of the Rolling Stones' prime early work collects every single from the beginning up through 1971, A- and B-sides. All the obvious hits are here ("Satisfaction," "Jumping Jack Flash," "Honky Tonk Women," "Brown Sugar") as well as several B-sides ("Stoned," "I Want to Be Loved," "I Don't Know Why AKA I Don't Know Why I Love You") not previously released on CD. But it's the unrelenting succession of great cuts that make this a landmark collection. No band in the history of rock and roll has a catalog as substantial and hard-hitting. Quite simply, one the most essential rock collections ever released. --Rob O'Connor

The Rolling Stones Singles Collection - The London Years was originally released August 15, 1989 in the U.S. only. There are no other compilations that include all the single hits. This is very much a Stones collectors album that encompasses the era of the 45 RPM single from their start in 1963 through 1969, with some things from as late as 1975. The set includes all the London singles and B sides plus all the Decca UK single releases that were not released in the US. Plus Brown Sugar and Wild Horses (which were recorded for Rolling Stones Records while the Decca/London contract was still in effect), Jagger's soundtrack song Memo From Turner, and the 4 single tracks (I Don't Know Why, Try A Little Harder, Out Of Time, and Jiving Sister Fanny) that were pulled from the Decca/London vaults and released against the Band's wishes in 1975 (from the controversial Metamorphosis album). The booklet that comes with the 3 CD set has notes on each song, so I will just outline which singles, B-sides, etc. came from which year for you here. I have also indicated which other US compilation albums the song appears on.
