There’s certainly no big hole out there in the record collections of Rolling Stones fans when it comes to greatest hits albums. But if there’s any group in history of rock that would deserve yet another package of best of songs, it’s The Stones
Honk collects a slew of hits (36 to be precise) that span the band’s 1971 classic Sticky Fingers up to their latest studio album 2016’s Blue & Lonesome. The CD and vinyl sets include the expected tracks like “Start Me Up,” “Brown Sugar,” “Angie,” “Wild Horses” and “Beast of Bourdon,” and many more lesser known from the last couple of decades; though now all here are radio station staples, they are still solidly impressive on their own. But the real incentive here lies in the additional disc (or record depending on your format) available on the Deluxe sets. The bonus disc includes 10 live tracks taken from stadium shows between 2013 and 2018. Among the songs are “Dead Flowers,” with Brad Paisley, a smoldering version of “Bitch” with Dave Grohl, as well as a take on “Wild Horses,”with Florence Welch sitting in with the band.
Yet again, The Stones prove too much is still never enough.
