We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.

Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.

Stay tuned !

Even a Coconut Can't Stop US

The Rolling Stones are an English band whose rhythm and blues and rock & roll based music became popular during the "British Invasion" in the early 1960s. The band was formed in London in 1962 by original leader Brian Jones, but was eventually led by the songwriting partnership of singer Mick Jagger and guitarist Keith Richards. Pianist Ian Stewart, drummer Charlie Watts and bassist Bill Wyman completed the early lineup. Ian Stewart was removed from the official lineup in 1963 but continued to work with the band as road manager and keyboardist until his death in 1985. The band's early albums were mainly covers of American blues and R&B songs. The band's single, "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction", established the Stones as a premier rock and roll act. Starting with their 1966 album Aftermath, the songs of Jagger and Richards, aided by the instrumental experimentation of Jones, expanded an always present stylistic flexibility. Jones died in 1969 shortly after being fired from the band and was replaced by Mick Taylor. Taylor recorded five albums with The Stones before quitting in 1974. Former Faces guitarist Ron Wood stepped in and has been with the band since. Wyman retired in 1993 and was replaced by Darryl Jones, who is not an official member.

The band has released 55 albums of original work and compilations, and have had 32 U.K & U.S top-10 singles. They have sold more than 200 million albums worldwide. 1971's Sticky Fingers began a string of eight consecutive studio albums at number one in the United States. In 1989 the Rolling Stones were inducted into the American Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and in 2004 they were ranked number 4 in Rolling Stone magazine's 100 Greatest Artists of All Time. Their latest album, A Bigger Bang, was released in 2005 and accompanied by the highest-grossing tour in history, which lasted into late summer 2007. During the 1969 American tour, tour manager Sam Cutler introduced them as "The Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the World", a title which has remained. Their image of unkempt and surly youth is one that many musicians still emulate.(Source : Wikipedia).

This compilation contains songs from the beginnings until now and is divided in two parts. CD one contains most of their hits. CD two contains lesser known songs. For the last 20 years, even if they released some standard albums, there are still some great tracks on them - sometimes with famous guests (On Slave, the saxophone player is Sonny Rollins, and you can hear Jimmy Page on lead guitar on One hit (to the body)).

Isn't there something missing in this sentence? ;)

Why do you say that ?

@pierre : pourquoi ce titre : "Even A Coconut can't stop us" ?

Pourquoi "Even a Coconut can't Stop us" ?

Et bien évidemment le titre fait référence à l'exceptionnelle longévité de ce groupe mais aussi à la dernière péripétie qui a failli stopper net leur carrière.

En 2006, avant leur tournée européenne, Keith Richards était en vacances dans les îles et il a eu un accident qui lui a valu deux opérations cérébrales, quelques semaines de repos forcés et plusieurs dates de la tournée annulées.

La légende dit que l'accident en question, c'était lorsque que Keith voulant faire le con est monté dans un cocotier pour récupérer des noix de coco et il serait tombé méchamment !!

Et voilà !!!
