Out Now: ‘Honk,’ A New Career-Spanning Rolling Stones ‘Best Of’ Collection with Hits and Classic Cuts

0

It seems like a new Best Of album compiling the biggest, most noteworthy songs from legendary bands comes out every week or so, and this week’s is the Rolling Stones.

Honk, a new set of the Stones‘ best-loved songs spanning every studio album, from 1971 all the way through 2016’s Blue & Lonesome, is out today. All the classics are there, with a smattering of deep cuts for good measure.

From the news release:

Honk showcases The Rolling Stones’ remarkable run of hits. Taken from the band’s imperial phase, Honk features “Happy” (Exile On Main Street, 1972), “Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo (Heartbreaker)” (Goats Head Soup, 1973) and “Beast Of Burden” (Some Girls, 1978) alongside later singles like “Waiting On A Friend” (Tattoo You, 1981), “Undercover (Of The Night)” (Undercover, 1983), “Harlem Shuffle” (Dirty Work, 1986), “Rock And A Hard Place” (Steel Wheels, 1989), “Love Is Strong” (Voodoo Lounge, 1994), “Out Of Control” (Bridges To Babylon, 1997), “Rough Justice” (A Bigger Bang, 2005) and “Just Your Fool” (Blue & Lonesome, 2016).

 

Honk also highlights classic Stones’ album cuts – “Bitch” (Sticky Fingers, 1971), “Rocks Off” (Exile On Main Street, 1972) “Dancing With Mr. D”, (Goats Head Soup, 1973) and “Respectable” (Some Girls, 1978) – as well as stand-alone tracks such as “Don’t Stop” (Forty Licks, 2002) and “One More Shot” (GRRR!).

 

On Honk, “Get Off My Cloud”, “Let’s Spend The Night Together” and “Under My Thumb” (recorded in Cardiff, Manchester and London, respectively, during the 2018 No Filter tour) ably represent the band’s ground-breaking early-mid ‘60s years; while the version of “She’s A Rainbow” from Paris, 2017, provides a relatively rare outing of this classic piece of psychedelic Stones. The appearance of “Dancing With Mr. D”, meanwhile, recorded in Arnhem, 2017, marks the song’s acclaimed return to the band’s set lists for the first time in 44 years.
