"I have to admit that even though "Flowers" is sort of a catch all of B sides, songs that came out on UK records, older studio things and a few rereleased songs, this is a collection that I really, really like. I play this record just the way it is. I deleted no songs. nor did I add any, when I put this record on my iPod. I guess I was just so used to listening to the songs in this order that I couldn't bear to change it. All of the songs on this record were penned by Mick and Keith, except for Smokey Robinson's "My Girl." The record opens with the better than excellent "Ruby Tuesday," which kind of sets the tone for the album as it segues right into the rocking "Mother's Little Helper," than it's all she wrote as "Mother" fades into "Let's Spend the Night Together." Wow, if that line up doesn't get your pulse pumping, you blood running, your heart pounding, well you're just plain not human."
