Rolled Gold; THE BEST COMPILATION

Date: July 2, 2010 13:39



Just finished listening to this.

I know it's just "another" money grab for ABKCO, but I think this is just the best Stones compilation covering the sixties.

It FAR outpasses both Hot Rocks compilations. It's much more consistent.

It's also giving you a better look at the Stones overall than The Singles Collection.

Disc 1

1. Come On
2. I Wanna Be Your Man
3. Not Fade Away
4. Carol
5. Tell Me
6. It's All Over Now
7. Little Red Rooster
8. Heart Of Stone
9. Time Is On My Side
10. Last Time
11. Play With Fire
12. I Can't Get No Satisfaction
13. Get Off My Cloud
14. I'm Free
15. As Tears Go By
16. Lady Jane
17. Paint It Black
18. Mother's Little Helper
19. 19th Nervous Breakdown
20. Under My Thumb
21. Out Of Time
22. Yesterday's Papers
23. Let's Spend The Night Together
24. Have You Seen Your Mother Baby
Disc 2

1. Ruby Tuesday
2. Dandelion
3. She's A Rainbow
4. We Love You
5. 2000 Light Years From Home

The vinyl - which has less tracks; would be my favourite compilation - and such excellent artwork, especially the back-cover
Rolled Gold Plus does have a nicer selection of songs ( =more songs), but I grew up with the 2LPvinyl

Yes - it's probably the best compilation.

Forty Licks is horrible I think....you can't force 4 decades of Rolling Stones best outputs into a double CD....you only get a glimpse of what they did every 2nd year. Lousy artwork as well

I agree.
BUT! My favourite is the original with less songs.
The perfect compilation of the 60's Stones.

Back in it's day High Tide was a dog floggin' knock-out but it's gotta be

I bought that compilation in 1976 and it was instrumental in getting me hooked on the Rolling Stones. The songs are compiled chronologically I believe, which creates an impressive changing musical flow when played in its entirety;it shows how musically creative and daring the young Rolling Stones were in the 60's.
Rock and Roll,

Yeah, I'd go along with Rolled Gold being the best, too. The Stones made some fabulous music in the 70's, but they are a 60's group and this compilation is the best summery of that most magical of decades. The decade in which he Rolling Stones really mattered the most.

I bought this on cassette when I was very young and getting into the Stones.
Like other people in this thread say, I grew up on this comp too! ...It was also the first time I heard Gimme Shelter, and I remember that song stood out like a thunderbolt from all the others on this tape for some reason. It seemed like all the tracks in the compilation were leading towards a menacing conclusion. In other words, quite an apt summary of the sixties as experienced by the Stones.

Yes it was discussed before I remember. Why did I write Dec 14th ? I meant the 21st.
Great photo anyway; it even has Bill Wyman in the front...not too common for official photos.

I prefer the original compilation with less songs. I don't like Tell Me but the new RG+ is ok. It has Wild Horses and Brown Sugar.

SFM and SFTD were out of sequence on the original so not quite chronlogical.

I bought the new LP, called "Rolled Gold +" , 40 songs on a whopping 4 album set!

Too perfect to even open. There is also a USB/SD Card version of this, in cool packaging, that I picked up on EBAY for a song.

I wonder how many ways you can repackage the old stuff, and people will STILL buy it?

Yesterday's Papers?

If they wanted a deep cut off BTB, I would have preferred 'Connection', or even 'Back Street Girl'.

Rolled Gold ll was a west german release only.

I also have Rolled Gold + on 4 disc vinyl. It's perfect. Can't get a better vinyl comp. of early Stones.

Yep, you´re right, it came out in 1980. The Rolled Gold + vinyl is nice, altough I never played it. However, I´ve got 4 copies of the original release, one can´t be played anymore, more or less, since I played the shit out of it when it was released drinking smiley. The Rolled Gold II is nice, and I think a bit rare nowadays. I got my 2 copies when they were originally released, but I hardly see them on the usual auction sites. It´s a nice companion to the original.
A little trivia: The so called jake box used for the re-release of Rolled Gold CD is a first, and a swedish invention. Have´nt seen it since, though.

For me, everything began with ROLLED GOLD.

Around 1980, I, 17 years old, was a hardcore Beatles fan.

On Dez. 25th 1981 my sister gave me a copy of RG on music cassete, a Christmas gift for me.

The song order was wrong, it begann with GOOMC.

That was a turning point in my life...
