Happy IS included. Last track of disc 2 on the 3 disc version. So it must be an error.

On yeah - I was checking just the 80 song version. I thought all the songs would be included there, but seemingly not. Interesting detail that "Happy" didn't make that...

But.. a question arises: why on earth there needs to be so many versions? For different pockets...

For my eyes only the 40 track version sounds somehow a well organized, solid package, the rest starts to look like a mess...

Just a few quick observations concerning the 80 song version.

- covers indeed the whole of their career and tries - and succeeds - to be 'equal', from "Come On" to "Plundered My Soul". That's good, and I think the song selection is rather well representative (well, for that amount of songs it must be...)
- seemingly divided to two different halves: two CDs of most well-known songs and hits, and then the rest less known
- the first two CDs are put in chronological order, but the question arises: why didn't make it properly? Why "Under My Thumb", "Sympathy For The Devil", "We Love You", and especially "Start Me Up" couldn't be placed to their proper places? I don't think that have ruined the aesthetic value of the listening experience.
- having all their early UK singles included - good job!
- some surprising choices: "She Said Yeah", "I'm Free", "I am Waiting". There could have been more, though
- nice that they recognize the value of "Plundered My Soul"
- pretty hard to 'complain' what songs are missing (it goes so subjective) but what stands out is the lack of Keith's tracks. Only' "You Got The Silver"! Where is such an obvious song as "Happy" (a top 20 hit among other things), and I think "How Can I Stop" would have been a good represenative of their latter day greatness. Also "Before They Make Me Run" (with that special mix) wouldn't have hurted. Mick's revange?

- Doxa

Weren't both She Said Yeah and I Am Waiting singles?

This is doubtful, because She Said Yeah is the lead track on the UK version of Out Of Our Heads and I Am Waiting was also on the UK version of Aftermath.

Let me correct myself, I KNOW that She Said Yeah has been released as a single (might have been a re-release, though - see link below), but what about I Am Waiting? I remember a promo performance on TV in the 60s where they played it live.

[itunes.apple.com]

Sorry, I was thinking only of the UK. If She Said Yeah appeared on December's Children, which I think it might have, then it may have seen release as a single either as an A or B side. Don't know about I Am Waiting, though--doesn't seem like Top 40 oriented material. And neither song appears on the Singles Collection: The London Years.

As far I know there are no single relaeses of "I am Waiting" in their 'major' (UK & US) markets. The performance Dandie talks about is probably just to promote AFTERMATH album. They performed it at least in READY STEADY GO (with another non-single song "Under My Thumb"), and is there some other US color version as well where Brian plays hand broken?

And the same goes for "She Said Yeah"; there is a tv performance of that as well, but not a single. NOTHING in those collections is 'definitive' or 'proper' in the sense the songs should be single hits or something like that. There are strong tendencies for that direction, though. I would say both songs - "I am Waiting" and "She Said Yeah" - came out of blue. Not that they are not great songs but rather unprofilic ones.

But I need to say that now once seeing the cover and what it contains, all there is left to do is just to hear the new songs. For that the cheapest version will do for me (unless the DVD contains something remarkable).

But damn I hope that the new songs are strong enough for the shortest set to have some lasting value as a representation of their career.

So that's GRRR...as far as I am concerned.

Just a few quick observations concerning the 80 song version.

- covers indeed the whole of their career and tries - and succeeds - to be 'equal', from "Come On" to "Plundered My Soul". That's good, and I think the song selection is rather well representative (well, for that amount of songs it must be...)
- seemingly divided to two different halves: two CDs of most well-known songs and hits, and then the rest less known
- the first two CDs are put in chronological order, but the question arises: why didn't make it properly? Why "Under My Thumb", "Sympathy For The Devil", "We Love You", and especially "Start Me Up" couldn't be placed to their proper places? I don't think that have ruined the aesthetic value of the listening experience.
- having all their early UK singles included - good job!
- some surprising choices: "She Said Yeah", "I'm Free", "I am Waiting". There could have been more, though
- nice that they recognize the value of "Plundered My Soul"
- pretty hard to 'complain' what songs are missing (it goes so subjective) but what stands out is the lack of Keith's tracks. Only' "You Got The Silver"! Where is such an obvious song as "Happy" (a top 20 hit among other things), and I think "How Can I Stop" would have been a good represenative of their latter day greatness. Also "Before They Make Me Run" (with that special mix) wouldn't have hurted. Mick's revange?

- Doxa

"Happy" appears to be the only song which is on the 3-CD version but NOT on the 4-CD version. Very odd.

As they did with 40 Licks, the track selections on all versions of this release are a 50/50 split between ABKCO and post-ABKCO releases (each release includes the 2 songs - Brown Sugar and Wild Horses - which ABKCO owned but which were released on Rolling stones Records and which regularly pop up on compilations issued by both labels.

All 36 of the 'old' songs (plus 'Dont Stop') which were released on 40 Licks are also available on 'Grrr!'. 30 are replicated on the 2-CD version and 33 on the 3-CD version. There are four songs on the 2-CD version of Grrr! which were only released after 40 Licks (Streets of Love, Plundered My Soul and the two new songs)

Was 'Don't Stop' really one of their greatest hits?

I think this calls the integrity of this project into question...
