Big Hits (High Tides And Green Grass) is the first official compilation album by English rock band The Rolling Stones, originally released in the UK in November 1966 via ABKCO Records.

The first hits compilation of the Stones is still one of the most potent collections of singles that one can find. Listening to it in 1966 or today, one can understand how, almost prematurely for the 1960s - as most of the material here dates from 1964 or 1965 - the Stones set themselves up as the decade's most visible rock & roll rebels.

The defiant, in-your-face fuzztone riff and sexually frustrated lyrics of "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" and the frenetic pounding punk anthem "Get Off Of My Cloud" are highlights of a 12-song set that has no weak points, only peaks - the louder-than-life rhythm guitars on "It's All Over Now" and "The Last Time", the wailing R&B of "Time Is On My Side", the balladry, folk, and soul style of "As Tears Go By" and "Tell Me", and all of the rest make for a body of work that's still amazing to hear decades after the fact.

The timing of the release in 1966 completely missed the group's drift into psychedelia, and it has since been supplanted by Hot Rocks and More Hot Rocks, but Big Hits is still the most concentrated dose of the early Stones at their most accessible that is to be had, short of simply playing their first five albums.

Check out the album tracks: “"(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction”; “The Last Time”; “Time Is On My Side” and “Get Off Of My Cloud”.

This LP record is on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl featuring the 2002 remastered audio, housed in a gatefold sleeve with attached glossy booklet, pressed in Europe via the "ABKCO the Rolling Stones DSD Remastered" series.
