A side of the Rolling Stones that's quite unique – served up in a host of great cover versions of classic tunes by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards! Given that early on, the Stones themselves had borrowed heavily from American R&B of years past, it's no surprise that eventually, American artists would return the favor – and start taking original tunes written by the group, and bringing them back to their own soulful roots! The package follows nicely in the mode of similar Beatles and Motown-related collections of work – and mostly features US tunes from the late 60s and early 70s, done in a range of styles that include funk, soul, and jazz – all with their own unique interpretations on the originals. Titles include "Gimme Shelter" by Merry Clayton, "Jumping Jack Flash" by Ananda Shankar, "Honky Tonk Woman" by The Meters, "I'm Free" by Wilmer & The Dukes, "Let's Spend The Night Together" by Muddy Waters, "Bitch" by Herbie Mann, "Under My Thumb" by Wayne Gibson, "Satisfaction" by Assemblage, "You Can't Always Get What You Want" by Maxayn, "Play With Fire" by Ruth Copeland, "No Expectations" by Odetta
, and "As Tears Go By" by PP Arnold. CD features 15 tracks in all – plus a bonus CD that offers a live mix of the tunes by 4Hero!
