ROLLING STONES

THE SINGLES 68-71

 9 X CD/+DVD

NEW & SEALED



The somewhat delayed third instalment in ABKCO's repackaging of the Stones singles from an era when singles were a dominant predeterminate of a band's popularity is by far the best of the bunch.
I'm assuming here that casual buyers will not be the main market for these pretty but not totally convenient box sets of The Rolling Stones Decca/ London singles output. Casual buyers will go for collections like The Rolling Stones Singles collection on three convenient CDs, or the two Hot Rocks collections these latter being the source to go for optimum stereo mixes on many of these epoch defining tracks.
No these boxed sets seem pre-ordained for the fan who already has just about every other permutation of classic Stones trax going but nevertheless appreciates the heady nostalgia of seeing these releases re-presented as treasured artifacts replete with their original sleeves.
However what makes this third instalment attractive to both casual buyer and loyal Stones geek alike is the inclusion of a bonus DVD and that is where this particular instalment of
The Rolling Stones Singles boxes gets good.
Here presented for the first time in pristine quality on DVD is the Stones October '64 debut on the Ed Sullivan show, with a truly memorable rendition of Irma Thomas's "Time Is On My Side" complete with mesmerised U.S. teens. This heady footage is followed by Peter Whitehead's awesome film of the Stones at The Albert Hall in late '66 at the height of their teen rock iconic powers. The best has yet to come however as Michael Lyndsey Hogg's "Jumpin' Jack Flash" promo from May 1968 bestrides the screen in all it's awesome demonic majesty. Filmed as one of two Hogg directed promos for a single which effectively relaunched the band from a psychedelic torpor induced by drug busts, band rivalries and a none too well received album, this film perfectly mirrors the unsettling energy of a single that has now become de rigeur to every Stones concert since.
But this is the original version with the original film and none of the dark intensity has been lost. The accompanying track is longer than the single and features a long organ outro courtesy of Bill Wyman, Keith Richard rather peversely and not for the first time laid down the bass track. But what viewers of the film see is by far the longest version of this all to scarcely seen promo. Which for this reviewer at least is still the greatest rock promo ever - bar none!
There is a glossy and glamorous video to round of this DVD of Sympathy for the Devil remixed by The Neptunes, which along with the Norman Cook and Neptunes audio remixes seems jarringly out of place on this otherwise excellent compilation.
But these minor caveats aside this is an absolute essential for anyone remotely into or curious about what is still arguably The Greatest Rock 'n Roll Band in the world.
