Background: Released in 1971 in the UK (but not in the U.S.,) Stone Age was one of a number of Rolling Stones compilation albums to be released in the 1970s by the band’s former manager, Allen Klein, who held the rights to the band’s 1960s material.
The album, which consisted entirely of tracks that had never before appeared on a UK Rolling Stones album, reached #4 on the UK charts.
Allmusic.com gave Stone Age a 3 1/2 star review:
Stone Age, like several other of the earliest collections in this sequence, is a rather enjoyable romp through the group’s 1964-1966 archive, and includes no less than three tracks that had hitherto avoided U.K. release: “Blue Turns to Grey,” “One More Try,” and “My Girl,” plus the never-before-on-album B-side “The Spider and the Fly.” Other tracks were at least the underexposed remnants of EPs and early albums, and the final result, while certainly appearing fairly random, nevertheless illustrates the sheer dexterity that was the breakthrough Stones’ most hidden attribute.
