Start Me Up (Remastered)
Label: Polydor Records
This massive box set (45 discs!) includes all the songs from The Stones' '70s era that even casual fans know; the early '80s period where every riff became some form of "Soul Survivor" from Exile On Main St.; and the more, um, forgettable material from the late '80s and early '90s, as well as bona fide returns to brilliance during those same years ("She Was Hot," "Rough Justice"). A filthy reading of the best Chuck Berry song ever, "Let it Rock," from what can only be circa the Get Yer Ya-Yas Out! tour, is absolutely essential hearing and repeated cranking for any fan of Mick Taylor's tenure.
