It became the Rolling Stones' best-selling release of their career and an enduring and popular retrospective. While the album carries most of the band's biggest hits during their first decade, it does drop a few of them to include standout album tracks such as "Play With Fire", "Under My Thumb" and "Gimme Shelter" giving listeners a more well-rounded impression of the Rolling Stones' music in this era.

Soon, they became as well known for the bad boy antics of swaggering frontman Mick Jagger and hard partying lead guitarist Keith Richards as for their unending stream of infectious hits. Impressively, each of their two dozen-plus studio albums has become certified Gold or Platinum.
Strutting funk, rowdy honky-tonk, sinister psych—it's all here in spades. The Stones have been rock gods for so long, and that means there's plenty of stellar material hiding between the hits in their catalog. Reply Notify me 1 Helpful. Texasbear August 30, Report.

PedroVT August 29, Report. The list of singles shows I wanna be your man being released before Come On. Is this correct? Any short explanations? C December 23, Report. Few partnerships in rock 'n' roll have been as productive as the collaboration between Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, and of course having wunderkind Brian Jones along did nothing to hinder the Rolling Stones' popularity.
From the get-go, the band played the raunchy, gritty doppelganger to the Beatles' dandified Merseybeat pop. They ventured a heavier, bluesier sound than their British Invasion counterparts, taking their cues from Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf. The band's greatest strength, besides Charlie Watts, has always been their ability to add stylistic touches drawn from their interests in Eastern music, psychedelia, country and even disco to a blues rock chassis.
It's difficult to listen to the trippy Their Satanic Majesties Request, the down-and-out honky-tonk of Exile On Main Street and the clean modernist surfaces of Bridges To Babylon and believe they were recorded by the same band. Of course, in some ways they weren't; the lineup changes that have dogged the Stones account for much of their musical diversity. Jagger's famous slur and Richards' sloppy guitar elegance are the two constants in the band's many life cycles that make every Stones song instantly recognizable.
Its testimony to a great band when most of their fans today don't even remember them in their prime!! Reply Notify me 6 Helpful.

All Things Hyped: Last.I was one of those people who didn't get into the Rolling Stones until later in life.
I liked Satifaction and Start Me Up, but didn't know too much more about their music. After buying this CD, a whole new world was opened to me.
They are for sure in my top 5 of best bands of all-time. The playing is superb, and the songwriting and longevity is unmatched. With 40 great songs, you can't go wrong. Since buying this 2 CD set, I've started buying their studio and live albums. It'll take me awhile, but it'll be worth it when I have them all.
The re are a few popular songs that aren't on this collection most noteworthy to me: She's So Cold off of Emotional Rescuebut that's nitpicking. For the price and the product, this is a great deal. I've alwasy been ambivilent about the Stones. But I needed some of their music for my library. But it sucked really bad - not only the slow initialization, but after I dumped it because they wanted to charge me an outrageous monthly fee I found that all of the songs I downloaded would no longer play since I cancelled my subscription.
I never knew what a rip off BestBuy was. SO I needed Shelter. I suggest you search on eBay for your copy of this CD. You'll be glad you did. I've been wanting it for years. Can't buy it in the shops any more.
So I thought I might get it on eBay. I was right.Forty Licks is a double compilation album by The Rolling Stones. Four new songs are included on the second disc. The album was a commercial success, as it reached No. Inthe Rolling Stones had an acrimonious break-up with their former manager, Allen Kleinand their former record label, Decca Records who licensed their recordings to London Records for release in the US.
Because of the terms of their former contract, all of their pre recordings were all under Klein's control, up to and including Let it Bleedsome tracks that made it on Sticky Fingers and Exile on Main Streetas well as outtakes, unreleased recordings, and live recordings. The Stones would immediately form Rolling Stones Records as a result, that gave them control over all of their subsequent recordings.
As a result, any career retrospectives tended to be divided into two eras: prior to the split, and after the split. Klein's ABKCO Records and Decca Records would continue to release unauthorized greatest-hits records, outtakes and rarities records, and other compilations throughout the s, s, and s.
Any compilations or retrospectives released by the Rolling Stones afterby any of their distributors or partners such as Atlantic Records or Virgin Records were always restricted to material recorded and released from onward. Because of various business deals and mergers of various record companies over time, the barriers to creating a unified retrospective compilation album had been resolved by the early s.
Forty Licks has received mostly positive reviews from music critics. CANOE also felt that most fans already owned most of the songs on the album and that "Losing My Touch" was the only good previously unreleased song on the collection.
