Lavishly packaged, The Rolling Stones CD Singles (1971-2006) Box Set collects the amazing run of forty-five 45s the group has issued over the last four decades. Amongst many gems, it includes chart-toppers such as the irresistible 'Brown Sugar', the beautiful ballad 'Angie' and the floor-filler par excellence 'Miss You', as well as the infectious rockers 'Mixed Emotions' and 'Don't Stop'.

The new box set also highlights the band's rock and roll and rhythm'n'blues roots, and showcases their wonderful cover versions of Chuck Berry's 'Let It Rock', the Temptations' 'Ain't Too Proud To Beg', Smokey Robinson and The Miracles' 'Going to a Go-Go', Bob & Earl's 'Harlem Shuffle' and Bob Dylan's 'Like A Rolling Stone'. And it brings the group's compelling story up to date with the soulful 'Streets Of Love', 'Rain Fall Down' and 'Biggest Mistake', their most recent studio recordings.

A sequel of sorts to ABKCO’s three boxes of singles replicas from the mid-2000s, Universal’s The Singles: 1971-2006 is a gargantuan 45-disc box set that offers single replicas of every 45 the Rolling Stones released between Sticky Fingers and A Bigger Bang. Singles that saw release over multiple formats, whether they’re 12" dance singles or multi-format CD singles, see their various B-sides combined onto one CD, resulting in a whopping total of 173 tracks, 80 of which are “not currently available on official release.” This is a true statement but it greatly overestimates the actual number of genuine rarities here: most of these cuts are dubs, remixes, and extended versions, with only a small handful of B-sides being non-LP cuts. Of these, there’s even a smaller number dating from the Stones' ‘70s prime: their cooking cover of Chuck Berry’s “Let It Rock” (flip of “Brown Sugar”), the ragged disco rock of “Everything Is Turning to Gold” (the B of “Shattered”), the languid ballad “I Think I’m Going Mad” (“She Was Hot”). The collection includes a fair number of non-LP cuts from the late ‘80s and ‘90s -- often tossed-off blues that are quite enjoyable for their casual authority -- but only the hardest of hardcore should go into this thinking that they’ll get their money’s worth in rarities. Instead, this is a beautiful collector's item, something that is fun to look at and sample but nearly impossible to enjoy as a straight listening experience. -- by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Some Girls reissue vem ai Dia 6 de dezembro nas lojas de todo Brasil

A edição superdeluxe de Some Girls traz 3 discos (2cds e um dvd), mais um livro, o single de Beast of Burden em vinil, cinco post cards, um poster vertical e uma foto em P&B dos Stones em 1978.
Os cds têm o disco original remasterizado e as faixas extras. O DVD traz clips de Some Girls (Respectable, Far Away Eyes e Miss You) e três canções extraídas de Some Girls in Texas (Beast of Burden, Shattered e Tumbling Dice). O acabamento é caprichado e a caixa é de muito bom material.
Certamente virão reclamações quanto ao DVD por não trazer material inédito.

Quanto às faixas extras.

Nenhuma delas é realmente inédita, todas são conhecidas de bootlegs, mas ganharam roupagem nova (algumas vocais de 2011). É excelente material, as composições são maravilhosas. O CD de extras poderia ser lançado como um novo disco dos Stones e seria muito elogiado.
Trata-se de ótimo álbum de country rock e blues, principalmente de country. Na nossa opinião, o conjunto das faixas é superior ao do Exile on Main Street - embora as faixas extras do disco de 1972 também sejam muito boas.
