Don't get me wrong here. This is a very good recording and should be a apart of most record collections. However, the country twang to it may not please everybody. I basically have gotten use to the country flavored aspects. However, song wise I find the collection consistently very good as opposed to desert island material. I prefer Exile, Beggars Banquet, Ya Ya's, Sticky Fingers, and a few others to this but thats just me. Go for it by all means. 4 1/2 stars out of 5.

A prime time Rolling Stones record for sure. Rock, Country, and acoustic gems throughout. Gimmee Shelter is one spooky opening number and Love In Vain gives us the blues. Then Country Honk is a comical take on the classic Honkey Tonk Women. Live With Me features adrive bass line and gutsy singing from Jagger. Not to mention a super saxaphone solo by Bobbie Keys. Let It Bleed is a country flavored rocker with super piano and guitar tones.The second half continues the great moments. Midnight Rambler …

Wiki

One of the Stones' most beloved albums, 1969'sLet It Bleedwas a benchmark for several reasons. First, founding guitarist Brian Jones died during the recording process. Second, the Stones take their last significant look at pure blues (Robert Johnson's spooky "Love in Vain") and country ("Country Honk," the two-stepping alter ego of "Honky-Tonk Women") before folding both styles into a cohesive rock & roll vision. Third, it contains some of the band's most eerie hits, such as the flame-enveloped "Gimme Shelter," the drug-reality anthem "Monkey Man," the epic "You Can't Always Get What You Want," and Mick Jagger's menacing "Midnight Rambler."--Steve Knopper
