Various Artists ‎– 1993 The Rolling Stone Collection - "25 Years Of Essential Rock" [7 CD Box]

Various Artists ‎– The Rolling Stone Collection - 25 Years Of Essential Rock

Not everyone who was a rock music fan during at least part of the 25 years covered by the seven CDs in this collection will agree on what was the most "essential rock" of this era. Since this collection is associated with Rolling Stone magazine, you would be correct if you assumed that some of the magazine's favorite artists would be included here: Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, The Who, Prince, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Byrds, and Talking Heads. But also here are cuts by Led Zeppelin, a group the magazine generally did not consider to be anything special. The collection includes one #1 hit single, "I Want to Know What Love Is" by Foreigner; many non-hits, such as "The Crystal Ship", the B-side of the Doors #1 smash, "Light My Fire" (which is not included in this collection); some well-regarded efforts that were only available as album tracks; and some selections that are unknown singles by unknown artists to most rock fans, such as "See No Evil" by Television. For most potential buyers it will include some selections they already have on a CD and others they've never heard before. It may even introduce them to some artists they will grow to love. By the way, the sound quality of this collection is uniformly excellent.

This collection retailed for $100.00 when first released in 1993.There has never been a better collection of Rock Classics -- probably never will be, what with the difficulties of gaining clearances and gathering the best materials. The seven CDs are divided into the years covered: 1967-69; 1969-70; 1971-73; 1973-77; 1977-82; 1982-86; 1986-92. Enclosed in each CD is a booklet with a capsule history of the music and a complete artist/title list. All of which contain from 15 to 17 tracks, for a total of 110.

A 7 CD, 110 song collection that includes Casey Jones and Touch of Grey by the Grateful Dead. Also includes tracks by Quicksilver Messenger Service, Jefferson Airplane, Big Brother & The Holding Company, Santana, Moby Grape, Bob Dylan, Sly & The Family Stone and the Steve Miller Band.....and MANY more!
