A new 50th anniversary compilation album, GRRR! by The Rolling Stones will debut on November 13, with two new singles, “Gloom And Doom” and “One More Shot” included in the 3 disc package which is mostly like HOT ROCKS, MORE HOT ROCKS and their other greatest hits packages all combined into this huge 50 track digitally remastered package. It’s a whole lot of music, however the brand new digital remastering work should have these songs sounding better than ever, especially some of their very early blues influenced pieces like, “Come On”. But, then again so much of The Rolling Stones can be called blues influenced.
Some might be turned off with this latest repackage of old Stones material. But, then again the nice crisp remastering work should make this worthwhile here. A real gem for the first time Stones cd buyer or even life-long fan of the group.
You’ve got to hand it to a band that’s been around for 50 years. That’s a long ride. And the new single sounds plenty good as well.
