If you haven't heard the news, 50 rare Rolling Stones tracks have mysteriously dropped from out of somewhere. Songs dating as far back as the Brian Jones era all the way up to 1993, many unheard by even the most staunch Stones supporters, are now pressed onto a very limited 3 CD set in outstanding quality. And as far I can tell, an outtake of "You Got Me Rockin'" is nowhere to be seen. But, what is considered a holy grail, the original 1973 version of "It's Only Rock 'N' Roll" featuring both Ronnie Wood before he joined the band and David Bowie is included.

The full track list is below. Once I make it through it all, I'll report on the highs and lows.

Wow - I was not aware of this. Do I have to go down some Q Anon black hole to get a copy?

First impression is that the sound quality is excellent. The item I downloaded suggests it is a Japan fan-club release, but that could be wrong, not that it matters. Will continue listening. Very happy so far.

Fully finished is a bit of an exaggeration

Maybe the lyrics to "Not The Way To Go" really are "Manna sanna wanna haaana gannna fannna mana mana not the way to go."

Plenty to dive into, indispensable or not. Many thanks for supplying the lyrics to "Not the Way To Go" which I used with a pointy stick thing to sing along with. And am I the only one who's disappointed there isn't an outtake, fully finished or not, of "You Got Me Rockin"? (Probably - Ed). Cheers!

Bring this album up for discussion again in about a month when we have all had time to locate it and have had time to listen and absorb it! There is close to four hours there it listen to.

OK, I've listened to it and have a clear #1 favorite out of all of them. There's some unfinished shoddiness in there, but a LOT of gems too.

I'll wait to tell my fave 'til you give your report Sal - curious what yours will be

Hello all...no, please remain seated,

To my tastes, You Got Me Rocking was Mick's failure with the lyrics. I like the music underneath.


Chris Collins said...

I had NOT heard about this until now!!! I'm so excited about this!

Michael Giltz said...

I always enjoy "Hello all...no, please remain seated." Kills me every time. I'm a sucker for repetition I guess. is this a bootleg or one of those legal obligation releases where they must be it out commercially to maintain copyright and thus put out some super limited edition release in outer Bavaria and then it disappears again?
