Been revisiting the Stones lately and wondering what your favorite session is from the late 60's thru the mid seventies - their best period IMO.

Beggar's Banquet. No contest. "Stray Cat Blues," "Jigsaw Puzzle," "Salt of the Earth," all the great acoustic stuff, and, oh yeah, "Sympathy for the Devil" AND "Street Fighting Man." What an album!

I like Ya-Ya's ... more or less a greatest hits from this period, plus some Chuck Berry tunes. It is their best live album at that. Sympathy blows away the studio version!

I love 'Sticky Fingers'. Great songs, great performances. And "Can you hear me knocking" has a fabulous extended guitar section.

I really like the two before but just find a few tracks on both don't grab me. "Exile" is great too though more blurred to my ears.

(Before and) After that my Stones listening is just the singles.

I voted for Beggar's Banquet, but it's a close call, Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers and

Exile on Main Street are great too.

My all-time favorite is Aftermath---why isn't it on the list?

man, you can't go wrong with any of those selections; I picked Exile because it's a double album so there's more music, but really I find all of them to be representative of the Stones at their best (even Goat's Head Soup!!). Anyone have any comments on the recent SACDs of their 60s reissues?

Exile got my vote. One of the few Stones records I still listen to. They come off like a Southern roadhouse band on this one.

Beggar's Banquet is the tops for me, although Sticky Fingers isn't that far behind. Anything after Exile's is second rate Stones as far as I'm concerned.

Let It Bleed. My favorite part is during the title track where the rest of the band moves to the E7th but one of the guitarists stays on the C for an extra two beats - OUTRAGEOUS!! :lol:

Must have been one of those things they could 'fix in the mix' and forgot to.

It is tough, but I voted for Let It Bleed for strong songs although most of the list has that. If you took half of Goats Head Soup & half of It's Only Rock & Roll, that would've been a great album.

We are totally opposite on this one. I view that paticular album and song as an official period of decline for the group.

For me it's a toss-up between LET IT BLEED and STICKY FINGERS. No real reason why I didn't include AFTERMATH, I just decided to start with SATANIC... from 1967.

I stuck up for ya Evan! I'm vote #2 for Goats Head Soup. I'm kinda burnt on the others. Goats Head Soup is super diverse too. All over the place. B)

I like "Heartbreaker" "Dancing With Mr. D" "Silver Train". The bassline on "Silver Train" is DEEP!

Oh yeah, and "Star, fuck a Star, fuck a Star, fuck a Star, fuck a Star"! :unsure:

I went for "Let it Bleed", best album they have ever made?

At school 20 odd years ago the photographer and artistic director responsible for the "Let it Bleed" cover came to give a talk on commercial photography.

Apparently the Stones ( or some of them) were present at the photo shoot. The album back cover shows the "cake" from the front all smashed up. Once the cover photos had been taken Keith R wanted to wreck the "cake" for the back cover and had to be persuaded that in fact the destruction had to be more orderly.

Classic tunes, classic cover,

I like GHS - That's the one that makes the album for me!

Beggar's Banquet for the less radio-friendly stuff: No Expectations, Prodigal Son, Salt of the Earth.

This album had a touch of something rarely seen in Stones albums: humility.

They didn't get carried away with it though!

Exile has always sounded silly to me. I doesn't sound as much like a the rock classic to these ears as it does to others. I'm not at all impressed by drunk and strung out rock music.
