I would also recommend Hot Rocks 1964-1971, as a good entry point to their music.
You really can't go wrong with any of their mid '60s to mid '70s albums, though.
A couple of mid '70s albums nobody's mentioned yet, 'It's Only Rock 'n Roll' and 'Black and Blue' are also worth a listen.

"A Bigger Bang" I thought was a great comeback
not many people are with me on this one, though

I have been following this thread, and trying to come up with some good suggestions. Being a huge Stones fan, it is hard to select just a few songs, although i agree with most all of the suggestions so far.
When you have nearly 50 years of recordings to choose from, it might make more sense to pick a decade to start with. My suggestion would be start with the 1970s, which i consider the decade that the Stones were truly the Greatest Rock n Roll Band in the World.
Enjoy your listening.

I wouldn't bother with albums, the Stones were a radio band so its the hit singles and other fine releases you want to check out. This should cover it.
