Review by FunkyMonkey December 30, 2007 (3 of 4 found this review helpful)
I received this recently thanks to a's 2nd hand sale shop. Bargain at UK£10.

The discs are stereo hybrid, so not multi-channel mix. This is fine as this is how the songs were originally recorded.

The instruments are spread nicely between the speakers so there is a feeling of air between the instruments and each instrument is quite distinct.

I know many people have criticised this compilation stating that it is not their best work. However, this appeals to me because if you are only a fan as opposed to a fanatic of their music, this gives a good taste of their talents beyond their more famous works. In particluar, the psychedelic songs liek 2000Years stand out as beacons of creativity, however that may have been induced. ;-)

P.S. In particular, are the natural sounding guitars. Voices sound less natural compared to, e.g. modern recordings, but for the era, these soudn magnificent.

Performance:   Sonics:
Like all 22 of the ABKCO recordings, this is well done. All previous Stone CDs should be destroyed. The trouble is deciding which of the 22 albums to buy--especially since many are "greatest hits" type of albums. I think all Stones fans should own High Tide and Green Grass (Big Hits), Let It Bleed, and Beggars Banquet. A fourth pick could be this album, "More Hot Rocks", but I think Through the Past, Darkly (1 SACD), or The Singles Collection (3 SACDs with 57 cuts) are better choices.
