Rolling Stones Album Guide: The Good, the Great and the 'Angie'

A bluffer’s guide to the world’s greatest rock & roll Band

'Flowers' (1967)

Flowers

An album about rich, young mods, swishing through London with a satirical eye. Imagine Oscar Wilde sitting in with the Velvet Underground.

Key Track: In "Ride On Baby," Mick talks a speed-freak girl off the ledge while Jones adds harpsichord and marimba. Maybe the most underrated Stones gem ever.

Best Mick Moment: The breathless decadence of "Have You Seen Your Mother, Baby, Standing in the Shadow?"
