This album was spawned by three coinciding events -- the need to acknowledge the death of band co-founder Brian Jones whose epitaph graces the inside cover in July of ; the need to get 2,000 Light Years From Home - The Rolling Stones - Through The Past Tonk Women," then a huge hit single, onto an LP; and to fill the ten-month gap since the release of Beggars Banquet and get an album with built-in appeal into Hussein Fatal - New Jersey D.O.C ahead of the Stones ' first American tour in three years.
The fact that the Stones had amassed a sufficient number of hits since their last greatest-hits compilation in early Big Hits: High Tide and Green Grass made this a no-brainer, and its song lineup was as potent at the time as any compilation of hit singles by any artist. The presence of "Honky Tonk Women" propelled it to gold record status upon release on both sides of the Atlantic, although the simultaneously released British version long out of print, except as a bootleg CD is different and more confusing, but also more diverse and rewarding musically than the American version.
