    Between the Buttons(UK version) is my favorite. A great period where they broke away from R&B but hadn't yet hit their peak.

    Far away eyes video off that album has got to be the best stones video ever
    I had never heard that song before. Don't know why that particular video is so great, but thanks for posting the link.

    Nope. And the Stones are one of my top 5 bands.

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and say I really dislike the country honky tonk songs of the Stones. They make some of the best rock music ever but too much of their catalog is like this and I can't dig it at all.

    I'm going to go with Let it Bleed, I love everything on it except You Can't Always Get What You Want


    For those looking for awesome live stuff, the best stuff hasn't been officially released: King Biscuit Flower Hour 1973 (in Brussels) and 1978 Fort Worth Show (some times called Handsome Girls) both of these are easy to find and were professionally mixed

    See I listen to this song and I see it as a tongue-in-cheek imitation of that style. That's one of the reasons why I like it so much. I see it as a Glimmer Twin eff-off to the likes of Glen Campbell.

    I already listed my 3 faves (tough choice!) but this one, quirky, and with not all the Stones, is one of my other favorites.

    The entire album used to be on Youtube; now only a few of the songs are still on there. I hate when Youtube does that.

    Oh well, funky, interesting, fun album.

    You can't have the Stones without Keith Richards. That's just not right.

    Dude, you missed Black and Blue and It's Only Rock and Roll!

    I would add Out of Our Heads as #4, but here's my top 3 with Exhile the apex.

    Sticky Fingers (1971)
    Exile on Main St. (1972)
    Some Girls (1978)

    am i the only one who like the Tattoo You album?
    waiting on a freind,tumbling dice,slave etc...great songs


    I have a soft spot for TY (and Emotional Rescue). Slave is a great song. Tumblin' Dice was on Exile.

    Well, then, I guess you can't have the Stones without Brian Jones, either.

    I disagree.
