GRRR! by the Rolling Stones

GRRR! by the Rolling StonesWhen I was around twelve, my parents offered me my first CD ever : a Rolling Stones album – Stripped, in 1995. Ever since I have been listening to this great Rock n Roll band.

So naturally, when GRRR! – their latest anthology – was released it got my attention. And having had a look at the great tracklist – see below – I just couldn’t resist and bought it.

So here is the soundrack for the three CDs version I bought :

16. Doom And Gloom
17. One More Shot

Yes, there are only two new songs. All the tracks are ordered chronologically, starting with Come on, in 1962 and finishing on CD3 with One more shot.

Given I already had listened to Forty Licks I was a bit hesitating to buy this one. But given the great added songs and the relatively low price for 50 songs ( 20€ at the FNAC ), I just couldn’t resist.

My favorite of the three albums is the second one. Indeed, it is starting with Jumping jack flash, the best way ever to get out of bed 🙂

The first album is fantastic as well but I am no huge fan of the five first songs…

The third and last one is my second favorite I would way.

This anthology is an opportunity to have a look – or rather, an ear – at how the Rolling Stones’ music evolved with time. And just for this, it is simply a must have ! 🙂
