Stone Age 1971 = crap / scheisse

Milestones 1971 = crap / scheisse

Rock&Rolling Stones 1972 = crap / scheisse

Gimme Shelter 1972 = crap/ scheisse

No Stone Unturned 1973 = interesting B-sides from singles/EP's

Time Waits For No One 1979 = not Decca but official RSR = scheisse

Slow Rollers 1981 = interesting because of Italian 'as tears..' (con le mie lacrime)

Solid Rock 1983 = scheisse

(Aftermath 1966? >grinning smiley<)

Just go for the box REST OF THE BEST.
Incl. Tell Me Baby (How Many Times)
and (some have the Co ck suc ker Blues 7"
as an official release by mistake).

In their time all these compilations had something to offer : difficult to find b-sides, tracks never released in the UK before or even tracks never released before anywhere (the rare stereo version of Everybody Needs Somebody for example).
Nowadays most of these tracks are available on the various singles collections edited by ABKCO. I think whar remains unreleased on any digital version are the stereo versions of Everybody Needs... and 2120 South Michigan Avenue.

This said Rock 'n Rolling Stones is fun to listen with all its Chuck Berry covers, No Stone Unturned is a nice compilation of rarely compiled tracks, and Slow Rollers works quite well as a "ballads" album.

So-called full length version has a few seconds more at the end of the track. Only available on Time Waits For No One compilation and on Japanese SACD reissue of IORR from last year.

NSU is great.
But e.g. "Stone Age" and "R&R Stones" at the time were invaluable to me.
It's on those albums that I learned many songs; many earl;y Blues songs on Stone Age .

Stones Age introduced me to many great songs: Look What You've Done, Confession The Blues and Blue Turns To Grey.

I know the band didn't think much of this release, but it has a special place in my collection thumbs up

Bullshit review
Of course; if you don't like Rolling Stones of the 60s then your review fits

Some of these compilations doesn't make any sense, trackwise - that's true - but records like Stone Age and No Stone Unturned are among the best ever RS compilations

Milestones was the first Stones album I ever bought and has a special place in my heart.

None of them "suck" as such, I mean they contain classic music from the Rolling Stones after all! I guess in 2012 they are no different to you making a compilation / playlist yourself though.

Their cover art is no reason to buy 'em, if I am correct they are pretty sparse (though "No Stone Unturned" has that awesome Jumpin' Jack Flash photo as its cover image). I myself still listen to Rock N Rolling Stones, Stone Age, the Australian "Stones", and Solid Rock - they're full of top songs in a different context, so why not? The most interesting one, "No Stone Unturned" is probably impossible to find at a decent price I'd imagine.

No Stone Unturned has some gems on it. Makes a great album, imo.
