This discography 


1) lists the Rolling Stones' original long-play and EP releases issued 
   in either the UK or United States, sorted by release date.   

   Those DECCA LP releases of the 60s which were unique to the UK, 
   in either title or configuration, are underlined in Eastward-pointing 
   arrows: ">>>>>>>>>>>>>>>"

   Those London LP releases which were unique to the US, in either 
   title or configuration, use Westward-pointing arrows: "<<<<<<<<<<<<<"

   From "Their Satanic Majesties' Request" on, the British and American 
   releases of previously unreleased material on LPs were congruent, with 
   the exception of "Metamorphosis" (1975). 

2) discusses the Rolling Stones on Compact Disc (search forward
   in this document for the text "CDs, CDs, CDs"). This section 
   answers the following questions:

    Who issues them? 
    When did they come out? 
    What are they like? 
    What do I need minimally for a "complete" Rolling Stones collection on CD?
    What about stereo versions of early Stones tracks? 

   (The detail work on this last question was done by Chris M. 
    [ChrisM42@aol.com]).
   
3) lists songs that were officially sanctioned and available at 
   some point, but never made it to any EP or LP in the UK or US 
   (search forward in this document for the text "Flipsides and 
   Oddities"). 


Concerning comprehensiveness: 

  We have declined to catalogue out-of-print compilations that do
  not have unique content unavailable elsewhere. 

  Some compilations, such as those which started 
  appearing in Europe in the seventies, may have filled 
  important gaps in European collections at the time 
  they were released, but the fact is that with only 
  a few exceptions, any track that was on those records 
  is now available somewhere on Compact Disc, small variations of 
  individual versions of a title notwithstanding. 

  (
  Exceptions: 
  * 2 tracks (plus an intro) from the 1965 UK EP "Got LIVE if you want it!"   
  * 6 tracks released on "Rest of the Best", a 1984 German box set

  These tracks appeared on now out-of-print European compilations, but 
  have still to make it to CD.
  )

  We have also declined, at this point in time, to exhaustively catalogue 
  those small variations on the same track between different LP releases. 
  While some variations are indeed significant, and some versions still
  have not appeared on a legitimate Compact Disc in any country, we feel the 
  omissions do not prevent the document from being a useful resource. 
                                             
  With the specific exception above, compilations stay on the list as 
  long as they either stay in print, or offer something found on no 
  other EP or LP.

     NB: To duplicate this track lineup with US releases, take US lp debut
         ("England's Newest Hitmakers"), remove "Not Fade Away",  and  add
         "Mona" (found on 3rd US LP/CD, "Now!") and replace "Tell Me" with
         the "long" version of it, not found on any US CDs. Long "Tell Me"
         was on the 11-LP box set from Mobile Fidelity in 1984, but on  no
         other US release.

     NB: Then-manager Eric Easton's co-producer credits have been  removed

         UK lp debut, remove "Mona", and  add  "Not  Fade  Away"  and  the
         "short" US album version of "Tell Me" (both found on  the  German
         "More Hot Rocks" CD).

         Michigan Avenue") appears nowhere except the  German  compilation
         "Around and Around", which was included in toto in  the  box  set
         "The Rolling Stones Story" - also vinyl, also out of print.

         "Time Is On My Side",  "Susie  Q",  "Under  the  Boardwalk",  and
         "Grown Up Wrong"; and finally (from  "More  Hot  Rocks")  use  "I
         Can't  Be  Satisfied".  Tracks  4,5,7  and  9  are  in   true
         channel-separated stereo on the Japanese CD issue of this title.

     Road Apiece / Off the Hook / Pain in My Heart / Oh Baby (We Got a Good
     Thing Goin') / Little Red Rooster / Surprise, Surprise

     NB: To duplicate, take UK LP "No. 2", delete tracks 4,6,8,9,12, and
         add "Mona" (from first UK LP), "Heart of Stone" and "Oh Baby" (UK
         version of "Out of Our Heads"), "Little Red  Rooster"  (UK  "High
         Tide and Green Grass"), and "Surprise, Surprise"  (a  flipside).
         Track 1 claims to be 2:57 on the CD, but is actually 5:00, except
         on the correct Jap. issue.

         "Rest of the Best", "Collectors  Only",  and  "Legends  of  Rock"
         (vinyl  only,  all  3  out  of  print;  "LoR"  track  listing  is
         inaccurate - entire EP is definitely included in toto); Tracks 4
         and 5 can be found on "December's Children"; track  6  is  on  US
         version of "Out of Our Heads";

 Out of Our Heads                         (30-Jul-1965)

     the Fly / One More Try

     NB: Features "I'm Alright" from the UK EP "Got Live if you want  It".
         To duplicate using UK releases, use also the UK version  of  "Out
         of Our Heads"; the singles "Satisfaction", "The Last  Time",  and
         "Play  With  Fire";  "One  More  Try"  (found  on  the  1971   UK
         compilation "Stone Age"); and "Spider and the Fly" (flipside  to
         the UK "Satisfaction" single)

     Baby (We Got a Good Thing Goin') / Heart of Stone / The Underassistant
     West Coast Promotion Man / I'm Free

     NB: To duplicate this UK  issue,  Americans  need  "She  Said  Yeah",
         "Gotta Get Away",  "Talkin  About  You",  "I'm  Free"  (all  from
         "December's Children"), "Heart of  Stone"  and  "Oh  Baby"  (from
         "Now!"), and the US "Out of Our Heads"

     Grey / I'm Moving On

     NB: Tracks 6 & 12 are taken from the UK "Got LIVE if You Want It" EP;
         To duplicate, Britons can find tracks 1,2,8, and 10 on  the  UK
         version of "Out of Our Heads". Compilations, singles,  or  buying
         the US CD outright are the only way to cull tracks 3,4,5,7,9,11;
         German CD based on mono version of old US LP lineup.

     NB: To duplicate this Euro-config, Americans  need  "Mother's  Little
         Helper","Take It or Leave It", "Lady Jane", "Out of  Time"  (all
         found on US compilation "Flowers"), and "What To  Do"  (from  the
         double-disc "More Hot Rocks"); for the correct, long version  of
         "Out of Time", (5:36) the only US release was  the  vinyl  Mobile
         Fidelity box set in 1984.

     NB: Several tracks appear on UK LongPlayer for the first  time  ever:
         US LPs had by this point already included "Little  Red  Rooster",
         "The Last Time", "Not Fade Away", "Satisfaction", "It's All  Over
         Now", "Paint It, Black" & "Get Off of my Cloud".

     NB: Poorly recorded; several tracks are just studio  recordings  with
         canned audience on top (esp. track 5). ABKCO's "Digital Remaster"
         from the mid-80s uses a different version  of  "Under  My  Thumb"
         from the original London release; UK customers got tracks 1,3,5,
         6,9, and 12 in 1971, on the compilation "Gimme Shelter"

      ========================     CDs, CDs, CDs    =========================

    Who issues them? 

      At any one time, legitimate CDs from the Rolling Stones 
      (i.e., CDs the Rolling Stones released under contract, 
      and not the "official but unauthorized" variety of CDs 
      widely issued in Europe in the 1980s and early '90s) 
      are issued by only two going concerns:  

          ABKCO  
                 [This company, owned by Allen Klein, has the rights 
                 to all Rolling Stones recordings originally issued 
                 up to and including the year 1970. It also owns the
                 publishing on all Rolling Stones compositions up to 
                 and including 1971's "Sticky Fingers", plus a handful 
                 of songs from 1972's "Exile on Main Street". ABKCO's 
                 rights apparently extend to at least the 1996 release 
                 of "Rock and Roll Circus", a previously shelved 1968
                 performance.  Typically, subcontractors such as London 
                 or Polydor are the actual record label on which Stones
                 recordings are issued.]
        or

          "The Rolling Stones" 
                 [The Rolling Stones own all of their post-1970  
                 recordings, and subcontractors, such as EMI, 
                 Sony, Atlantic, Virgin, etc. have been utilized
                 over the years to get the discs and records       
                 to market. The records/discs typically say 
                 "Rolling Stones Records, distributed by 
                 [such-and-such a company]". although as of 
                 "Voodoo Lounge", and the 1994 Virgin rereleases, 
                 the Stones' discs really are on Virgin Records, and 
                 there's no sign of "Rolling Stones Records" to be 
                 found anywhere.] 
      

      Since "The Rolling Stones" own almost all of their post-1970 
      "recordings", what they can do is license the recordings 
      for release on their current label, whatever it may be, 
      and take the recordings with them when the record company 
      contract expires.  This would explain the variety of companies 
      you may see issuing post-1970 CDs by the Rolling Stones in
      your local used CD store. (Note for American releases:
      American Stones CDs from this era were, up until 1993, 
      and with only one WEA exception, issued only by Sony/CBS, 
      who signed the Rolling Stones worldwide in 1984. One may 
      also find European or Japanese CDs from the post-ABKCO era 
      issued by EMI, the Rolling Stones' label in much of the 
      world from 1977 to 1984.)


    When did they come out? 

      The first Rolling Stones CD ever issued was 'Tattoo You', in 
      Europe by EMI in 1983.  In the States, it is "Still Life", 
      mistakenly released in 1984 by WEA, the Stones' American 
      label at the time. 

      American Stones CDs did not officially appear until 1986, 
      when Sony/CBS started issuing the post-1970 discs it had
      the rights to, and ABKCO began unleashing its cache of 
      1960s recordings on disc in the States as it had been 
      doing since 1984 in Europe.
                                                        
    What are they like? 
             
      The release of CDs did not freeze in stone (heh heh) any particular
      version of a song, or album, or Stones recording career overview. 

      Indeed, it exacerbated a long-standing problem where different
      issues of a Stones album have literally different tracks on them, 
      as was the case in the early 60s; or where discernibly different
      versions of a single song may be on different issues of an album, 
      a situation still happening 20 years on, in 1983, with the release 
      of 'Undercover', and its two distinct versions of the song "Wanna 
      Hold You".  

      Even when a CD release has two different versions of a song
      (as in the interesting case of "Poison Ivy" from the
      compilation "More Hot Rocks"), it may still be the case that a
      particular version of a song can only be found on old vinyl. 

      Some examples include: 

      * a full-length version of "2120 South Michigan Avenue" found 
        only on vinyl: the 1965 German compilation LP _Around and Around_

      * the "original" live recording of "Under My Thumb" which did not 
        make it to any post-1986 remaster of the "Got LIVE if you 
        Want it!" album
      
      Other, more esoteric issues also exist. There are both true
      stereo (i.e., channel-separated stereo) and "Electronically
      Reprocessed" stereo versions of early 60's songs on the
      market. Multiple distinct versions of a single song (as many
      as four!) have seen official release with obvious changes,
      such as a missing guitar solo, an organ intro replacing a
      guitar, and missing percussion tracks, handclaps, or verses. 

      Many (but not all!) of the American ABKCO CDs are considered
      inferior to their pre-1998 Japanese and pre-1995 European 
      counterparts, released on the "London" label, due to a poor 
      selection of masters. 

      Many of the 60's tracks from the non-ABKCO CDs which people 
      find preferable were remastered by Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs 
      for an American box set of vinyl reissues in 1984. This 
      deluxe set included the Stones' London Records (US) album 
      catalogue up to and including 1972's "Hot Rocks (1964-1971)". 

      In July 1995, the line became almost hopelessly blurred, as
      ABKCO decided to "streamline" its' worldwide Stones 
      offerings. They revamped the European CD and vinyl catalogue 
      and sold releases made from the masters which had previously 
      produced discs only for the American market. With that decision, 
      ABKCO effectively discontinued the "original European" pressings, 
      which had been available on London-label CDs for nearly a decade.

      ABKCO hype about "remastering" on the front of these post-1995 
      European releases (a red-on-black banner across the bottom) 
      should be taken with a grain of salt. These CDs and LPs 
      are only clones of the inferior CD catalogue which had been 
      available in the United States for many years. 
   
      This sweeping policy change had a delayed impact
      on Polydor's operations in Japan, however.  In Japan, 
      Polydor continued, through most of 1997, to issue CDs which
      did not conform to the "worldwide" ABKCO standard. The Japanese
      began issuing ABKCO-standard versions in 1997. 

      Just as an informational aside, these ABKCO releases 
      don't all sound like utter crap. The deficits are really only a 
      problem on the early tracks from their first three years, 
      up through 1967. Later ABKCO-era releases such as "Beggar's 
      Banquet" and "Let It Bleed" are considered fine, and finding 
      improved conditions for these albums are a matter of religious
      fervor and having unlimited cash to spend on such rarities as the
      Mono version of these albums. In any case, it is often true that 
      rarities are interesting for their rarity alone, so buyer beware. 

   What do I need minimally for a "complete" Rolling Stones collection on CD?

      As it stands now, there is no way to have a complete 
      Rolling Stones' collection without having at least 
      some old vinyl records.
      
      With the 1996 release of "The Rolling Stones 
      Rock and Roll Circus", it is also impossible to 
      have a complete set of Rolling Stones recordings 
      on vinyl, as there was no vinyl release of "Rock 
      and Roll Circus".
 
      As this applies to ABKCO, there are 22 song _titles_ never 
      issued on CD at all, and 12 of those come from the 1975
      compilation "Metamorphosis", which can be found on several
      illegitimate CD releases. There are several previously released
      and available _versions_ of other titles which yet to see the
      light of laser.

      As it applies to Rolling Stones Records (the releases from 
      1971 through 1991) there are four _titles_ still not ever
      released on CD: one of those appeared only on a magazine 
      flexi-disc in 1972, and two others were flipsides to 7" 
      singles. There are more than a dozen variations of already 
      released RSR-era titles (i.e., promo/mono edits or dance remixes)
      titles which themselves are not on CD.

      The ABKCO years:

      When wondering "which version" of an ABKCO CD to buy, consider 
      recommendations on sound quality from friends, and remember, 
      if you are trying to accomplish a complete collection of what 
      IS available from the Stones on CD, even though that's a 
      subset of the officially released Stones canon, no collection 
      which does not mix the commonly available ABKCO catalogue 
      (the "US" CDs) and the pre-1998 Japanese/pre-1995 European discs 
      will do it for you, 

      Because... no "US" CD has, for example, the five-minute-plus 
      version of "Out of Time" (from "Aftermath"), the full-length 
      "Tell Me" (from the first album) or true stereo versions of 
      several early tracks, even ones that were available in true 
      stereo on American vinyl previously (such as "Paint It, Black").  

      And... a number of songs never appeared on "UK" albums in
      the 60s, but exclusively on either American LPs or mid-70s UK
      compilations. Those mid-70s compilations have stayed out of 
      print in this age of the compact disc, and the pre-1995 
      European CDs ape the lineups of the European album releases
      from the 60s. 

      The comments on the individual albums, listed above in the
      detailed discography, provide a complete  overview of these
      "orphan" tracks.  
      
      For all the faults of the "US lineup" of album releases, it
      is a lineup which did end up offering the more complete (if
      slightly out of order) overview of the Stones' recording
      career. Buying strictly from the current "American" CD (ABKCO) 
      lineup will give you a complete collection of pre-1971 titles 
      which are available on official CD. 
                 
      But, you have to buy them _all_ (including the 3-disc
      "London Years" box set, which has nearly a dozen tracks
      unavailable anywhere else on CD), and you only get to
      economize by leaving out the double-disc "Hot Rocks
      (1964-1971)" and the two single-disc  "Big Hits"
      compilations: buy everthing else, and only then do 
      these three CD titles finally become superfluous. 

      After all this CD collecting, you still will not have
      the following pre-1971 titles: 
  
         * the six vinyl-only tracks which were released in Germany 
           only ("I've been Loving You Too Long (studio)", "Con le Mie 
           Lacrime", "Tell Me Baby, How Many More Times", "Memphis 
           Tennessee", "Da Doo Ron Ron" and "Cocksucker Blues") 

         * the first three tracks from the 1965 EP "Got Live if 
           You Want it!" (although one of these tracks is just a 
           restless crowd chanting "We Want the Stones!", called, 
           appropriately enough, "We want the Stones!") 

         * the 12 tracks from the UK version of the 1975 compilation 
           _Metamorphosis_ which never made it to the _London Years_ 
           box. So far, the only non-bootleg CD source of ANY tracks 
           from _Metamorphosis_ is the _London Years_ box, and it
           only provides four of that album's 16 tracks. 
                                                                
                                       
      The post-ABKCO years: 

      Certain later (post-1970) albums were notoriously mistreated in their 
      switch to digital, and with the advent of 20-bit mastering
      technology, Virgin Records reissued 20-bit remasters of the
      Rolling Stones' studio output from "Sticky Fingers" (1971) to
      "Steel Wheels" (1989) (with eight of these titles available in 
      limited edition commemmorative packaging) in June 1994.

      Some people report (trivially) longer fades on some of the tracks 
      on these Virgin remasters, raising the spectre of "different versions" 
      all over again, and forcing one to track down CBS-issue CDs in 
      order to have a complete set of CD-available _versions_. 

      At this point, the future on CD of the three compilations
      originally issued by "Rolling Stones Records" between 1975 and 1984
      is up in the air. All of these were issued on CD at some point
      after 1984 by CBS but are now out of print.  Of the three 
      compilations, only the single-disc compilation "Sucking
      in the Seventies" has material which can't be culled from
      other currently available CD sources. 

      Three live albums from the RSR years which had been out of 
      print for five years ("Love You Live", "Still Life", and 
      "Flashpoint") began reappearing in Japan and Europe in 1998. 
      Shortly thereafter, American versions came on the market.
  
 
      About two dozen post-ABKCO tracks have never been issued on
      CD, although only four of them ("Let it Rock", "Exile on
      Main Street Blues", "Through the Lonely Nights", and "Think
      I'm Going Mad")  are actually distinct performances. For the
      most part, the body of post-ABKCO work still not on CD is
      relegated to 12" "dance" remixes and mono/promo edits of
      singles. The value of these is set in the hearts/minds of
      individual collectors.

   What about stereo versions of early Stones tracks? 

      (Thanks to Chris M. [ChrisM42@aol.com] for this section,
       and to Glen Cassan and Luke Pacholski for pointing out
       where changes were appropriate.)  

      "Aftermath", released in the US in June 1966, was the first 
      American Stones' stereo album where some true stereo versions 
      actually reported for duty, and which were not the 
      'Electronically Reprocessed' Stereo, of American predecessors. 

      In the age of the CD, some of the material originally 
      issued before the release of "Aftermath" emerged, scattershot 
      fashion, in _true_ Stereo, on compact disc. This material is
      valuable not just for its curiosity value but because of the
      extremely high fidelity of the music, and the fact that much 
      of it was never issued in America. 

      Until the end of 1997, it was Japanese-issued CDs 
      which provided the bulk of the "early Stereo" content.

      At that point, Japanese CDs purchased factory-fresh 
      stopped delivering reliably the versions itemized in the
      following paragraphs. Any comments about stereo versions
      of early material on Japanese CDs should strictly be 
      interpreted to mean the discs which were on the market 
      through much of 1997.  
    
      The Japanese CD "Rolling Stones No. 2" had true stereo 
      on "Time Is On My Side", "What A Shame" (Charlie hammers 
      the right channel!), "Down The Road Apiece" and "I Can't 
      Be Satisfied", with the remaining tracks in mono. 

      There was a Japanese issue of "The Rolling Stones, Now!" 
      with a stereo "Heart of Stone", but, faithful to the track 
      listing of its' original LP counterpart, it included neither 
      "Time Is On My Side" nor "I Can't Be Satisfied".  It did, 
      however, include true stereo of "What a Shame" and "Down the
      Road Apiece" , tracks which are also found on "No.2". 

      The "American"/ABKCO release of "Now!" duplicates the
      stereo tracks which were on the Japanese "Now!". "Now!" is 
      the only "American"/ABKCO CD to include true stereo versions 
      of any pre-"Aftermath" material. (Note also that the versions 
      of track 1, "Everybody Needs Somebody..." are NOT identical 
      on the two discs, and that the Japanese "Now!" has the 
      short 3-minute version.)  

      To summarize to this point: The Japanese "No. 2" had 4 stereo 
      tracks, and any country's version of "Now!" has two of those 4, 
      plus a third, bringing the total number of early stereo tracks 
      to 5 so far.

                       
      On the 1965 title "December's Children", one finds a very 
      high-fidelity (but alas, not true stereo) "Look What You've
      Done". The Japanese issue of "December's" was once thought to 
      have a true stereo of both that song and "Get Off My Cloud", but
      the currently sold Japanese release definitely does not.

      The UK track listing of the 1966 greatest-hits compilation 
      album "High Tide and Green Grass" was used for a Japanese CD 
      reissue which had true stereo on "It's All Over Now", "Heart 
      of Stone", and "Time is on my Side". This same "High Tide" CD 
      inexplicably used the 'electronically reprocessed stereo' version 
      of "Get Off My Cloud", even though a true stereo of "GOMC" was
      available, and issued on other disc titles.

      Then we come to the Japanese CD versions of the 1972 
      titles "Hot Rocks" and "More Hot Rocks". These two sets 
      were issued overseas as four separate discs: "Hot
      Rocks 1", "Hot Rocks 2", "More Hot Rocks 1", "More Hot 
      Rocks 2". All combined, they provided most of the tracks 
      mentioned above. Note the 3 exceptions: 
        "Look What You've Done"
        "What A Shame"
        "Down the Road Apiece". 
      These 3 tracks are on neither "Hot Rocks" nor "More Hot Rocks".  

      (If you are seriously considering buying only one of the 
      Japanese "More Hot Rocks" discs, keep in mind that the Japanese 
      release of it is not a song-for-song matchup of their ABKCO 
      counterpart discs. No tracks are missing, but the order 
      and configuration of songs is different. Note also that 
      at some point late in 1997, the Japanese catalogue was 
      overhauled, and made from the mono/crappy masters the rest of
      the world's catalogues had been subject to since 1995.) 

      All of "Hot Rocks 2" is in stereo (no big deal for the 
      most part, although some find that the true stereo tracks 
      "Honky Tonk Woman" and "Street Fightin' Man" are very 
      desirable.) and on "Hot Rocks 1", mono is the exception 
      and not the rule. The pre-"Aftermath" stereo tracks 
      on "HR1" included "Time Is On My Side", "Heart Of Stone", 
      "Play With Fire", "Satisfaction", "Get Off My Cloud",
      "Paint It, Black" and "Mother's Little Helper".

      "More Hot Rocks 1" has true stereo for both "It's All 
      Over Now" and the shorter, "American" version of the track 
      "Out of Time" (3:50). "More Hot Rocks 2" rounds out 
      our list of pre-June,1966 stereo with "What To Do" and 
      "I Can't Be Satisfied".
                      
      "The Last Time", "19th Nervous Breakdown", and
      "As Tears Go By" have never been _officially_ released 
      in Stereo, but are available on 'unauthorized' (some 
      would say "bootleg") CDs, including one title called, 
      helpfully, "In Stereo" (Chapter One, 25203). Be forewarned, 
      however: there's no bootleg CD with stereo versions which 
      has received universal praise for either fidelity or 
      separation. Ironically, the real selling point of the 
      stereo tracks is the rich fidelity, so YMMV.


    ========================Flipsides and oddities=========================

    The following selections appeared on the 1980 German Compilation
    LP called "For Collector's Only" [sic], and the 1984 4 LP German boxed 
    set "The Rest of the Best",  but nowhere on the albums listed above for  
    the USA or UK.  Since the deletion of these two compilations, 
    these tracks remain unavailable officially.  Items marked "F" are 
    available on "For Collector's Only", and "B", the German box.
    
    (Note that the first and sixth tracks are glorified bootlegs, 
    the third and fourth are not _really_ the Rolling Stones, 
    but rather the "Andrew Loog Oldham Orchestra", and 
    that "For Collectors Only" would get you the two remaining
    tracks.)

  B  "Tell Me Baby, How Many Times"     recorded Chicago, June 1964
  BF "I've Been Loving You too Long"    recorded Los Angeles, May 1965
  B  "Da Doo Ron Ron"                   Andrew Loog Oldham Orchestra,  1964

                                         (limited edition 7" bonus single
                                         found _only_ w/ Sept. '84 issue
                                         of the box; deleted in later issues.)

   
    The following titles/versions have been officially released  
    by the Rolling Stones for public consumption at some point, 
    intentionally or not, but have yet to appear on any LP or 
    compilation released in the States or the UK.           
 
    By "officially released", we mean that they were not 
    _exclusively_ found on promotional items, even if (as in 
    the case with "Exile on Main Street Blues") 'release' meant 
    nothing more than the appearance on a flexi-disc issued 
    with a magazine, and not available for separate purchase.   


1968   "Street Fightin' Man"
                        Notorious 1st issue of the US single had not only 
                        a politically charged (and banned) picture sleeve
                        of a riot scene,  but an alternate musical version
                        which disappeared as well. The rare single has a 
                        different vocal track and more piano than the 
                        familiar "Beggar's Banguet" version. One of the 
                        priciest of all Stones rarities.

                        Hand-written matrix number on the final groove
                        is XDR-43220A X, with the number 14939 written 
                        in mirror image above it.

                        This version also showed up on an orange-label
                        London Records promo single with the same 
                        matrix number. 

1971   "Let It Rock"    - third track on UK "Brown Sugar" single
                        - replaced "Sister Morphine" on the Spanish version 
                            of the LP "Sticky Fingers"
                        - This live track from 1971 is widely bootlegged 
                            along with the remainder of the Leeds University
                            show from which it is taken.

1971   "Sway"
                        This 3:25 version was the B-side to original 
                        "Wild Horses" 7" single in the States.

1972   "Exile on Main Street Blues"
                        promotional flexi-disc, included w/purchase of 
                        UK magazine. 

1972   "All Down the Line"
                        B-side to the single "Happy", this is a different 
                        version from the LP's. This pressing of the 
                        single was eventually discontinued.

1974   "Through the Lonely Nights"
                        flipside to "It's Only Rock'n'Roll" 7" 45

1978+  "She's a Rainbow"/"2000 Light Years From Home"
                        The 1967 US 7" promo held edited versions of
                        these two songs, which eventually reappeared, 
                        after 1978, on a regular-issue London Records 
                        US single by mistake. The 1978 label is "Sunset" 
                        style, and etched into closing groove of single 
                        is the matrix number 5N-906.

1984   "Think I'm Going Mad" 
                        flipside to "She Was Hot" 7" 45

1990  The "Flashpoint" sides. A number of live performances
      recorded on the 1989-1990 tours were used as flipsides
      to singles pulled off the live album "Flashpoint". These 
      include:

      "2000 Light Years from Home"      (Highwire   US7", UK CD single "A")
      "Undercover of the Night"         (Sexdrive   US7", 
                                              Ruby Tueday UK CD single "A")
      "Play With Fire"                  (Ruby Tuesday 7", UK CD single "A")
      "I Just Wanna Make Love To You"   (Highwire  UK12", UK CD single "A")
      "Tumbling Dice"                   (Jumpin' JF   7", Benelux CD single)
      "Street Fightin' Man"             (Benelux CD single [same as above] )
      "Harlem Shuffle"                  (Ruby Tuesday     UK CD single "B")

      This list does not pretend to exhaust your methods of getting
      the tracks, it just offers suggestions for finding them.
     
1993  "Gimme Shelter (live)" - (cassette only, UK only) - 
             issued as part of a benefit project for the homeless in 
             1993, in which various artists cover the song, the Stones'

           Rolling Stone" [VSCDT 1562], October 1995, and in November

            [VSCDT 1578]. "WH" was taken from "Stripped". 
            "TD" is actually an edit of two versions: a 
            rehearsal and a public performance.)

            This version of "Gimme Shelter" also wound up in a couple 
            places associated with the 1998 release "Saint Of Me": 
            the US CD5 (7243 8 38627-2-6) and CD #1 of the European 
            double disc release (7243 8 94750 2 9).

           album is from the sessions for "Stripped" at EMI-Toshiba 
           in Japan.


1980-1998  The "remixes".  While the Collectibles CD includes
      one remix each of several popular songs, some remixes 
      persist without ever getting issued on any official 
      collection:

      "Undercover (Extended)"            (Undercover     12")

                       (US 12" has all these except the radio mix, 
                        US CD  has the extended and the instrumental.

                            Added to the European CD-5 of "Out of Tears", the
                            big change, in the words of Michael Honig 
                            (honey@mwald5.chemie.uni-mainz.de):
                                                        
               It sounded as if someone has added some ... ahem, "lubricant" 
               exactly on the little holes of the cd that encode the words 
               of the line in question: It goes something like 
           
                      "... I wanna <swoosh>'uck you sweet a<swoosh>" 

      "I Go Wild" (Scott Litt remix, and Luis Vesto Straight Vocal mix)

              7" single. A 6:01 "Bonus Roll" is on the 12" vinyl issued 
              in Europe. 
              ASMB remixes popped up on releases of 
              "Saint Of Me": on CD#1 of the European double-CD, 
              there's the "Phil Jones Remix" (4:26); and on the 
              double-vinyl 12" of "Saint", two previously 
              released ASMB remixes - the Bonus Roll

              12" vinyl (7243 8 95081 6 1/VST 1700), one finds

              Fluke" (4:30) appears on a limited edition 7" single.
              A double-vinyl 12" offers "In Hand wih Fluke", "In
              Hand with Fluke Full Length",               
       
1971-1998  The "promos".  Released to radio stations and DJ pools, 
      promotional singles will often include a version of a record that
      is more amenable to commercial airplay or dance club use, by virtue 
      of cleaned-up language, a different running time, or a hotter mix 
      more friendly to the intended arena (AM radio play or dance clubs).

      Many 7" promos were issued for the Rolling Stones where one side
      is "Mono" and the other is "Stereo", but here we catalogue 
      records that were more substantially altered or edited, 
      AND did not see a public, intentional commercial release: 
  

      "Dandelion"/"We Love You"                      (Promo           7")
           ("WLY" edited to 3:10 down from the usual 4:00 plus. From 
            "Dandelion", the intro and refrains of "Dandelion" at the   
            end are missing.)         
      "She's a Rainbow"/"2000 Light Years from Home" (Promo           7")
           (released commercially by mistake in 1978 - see above.)

      "It's Only Rock 'n' Roll"  (shorter)           (Promo           7")
