Mercifully, this EP offers only four cuts from what I consider one of the Stones' weakest album efforts, "Goat's Head Soup". With the exception of the hard driving "Silver Train", I find this lp to be one of the Stones' most tired and uninspired. "Star Star" masquerades as a Stones' rocker, which it is, but there's a vague feeling I've heard this all before. That Mick Jagger gets to scream the word 'fucker' is hardly exciting.
"Hide Your Love" is passable, but there's that curious sense of deja vu all over again. Speaking of deja vu, "Dancin' With Mr. D." is a trite retread of "Sympathy for the Devil", and the idea of Mick as the devil is decidedly ludicrous. Some people insist "Angie" is a beautiful song; I prefer "As Tears Go By" or "Lady Jane" myself.
Like "Black and Blue", this is one Stones' album I cannot listen to, with the exception of "Silver Train". You can pass on this ep, as well as the album.
