No, no, leave the Beggars Banquet for later, I strongly recommend you Sticky Fingers or Exile on Main Street, which of the both is easier to find. Only after that you can buy Let It Bleed or The Beggars Banquet. And then, after these 4, when you realize that this is The Greatest Rock Band Ever, you will go for stuff like It's Only Rock N Roll, Aftermath, and Bridges to Babylon

Yeah, I'm not sure they fall into the classic rock category, but I always hear The Smiths are great. Anyone recommend what songs or albums to try if I've never listened to them before? Thankss =P

Getting into roots rock, any recommendations? Not Creedence, though. My father has the box set.

Exactly who I was going to say. Check out The Band, one of the greatest roots rock bands. Probably the essential roots rock band.

Thanks for that profound insight.

I've been listening to a lot of crosby stills Nash and young lately, but I want something new to me. Anyone got suggestions?

If I might suggest their original double greatest hits album. The one with Midnight Rambler on it Hot Rocks would give you a nice overview of their formative years, followed by their second greatest hits album Hot Rocks And Fased Cookies......After that perhaps Let It Bleed, the Banquet one and Exile On Main Street................

I think the opportunity to buy the big 3 from that era of the Stones gives you a better idea of where they were at back then. Sticky Fingers, Let It Bleed and Beggars Banquet seem to all flow together nicely. A little hard rock, blues, jazz and even country seem evident through out these albums.

I would also suggest a retrospect of their greatest hits the Hot Rocks 64-71l one and the Fazed Cookie one. This gives you a nice over view of the band's accomplishments.
