Stones Revisit Singles Heyday with Boxed Sets
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – As the Rolling Stones extend their record-breaking gap between studio albums into a seventh year, their former label is stepping up with a series of reissues.
ABKCO Records will on May 4 release the first of three boxed sets collecting all the U.S. and U.K. singles and EPs from the band’s heyday in the 1960s.
“The Rolling Stones Singles 1963-1965” will feature 12 discs, three of them reproducing EPs that were only released on vinyl in the U.K., “The Rolling Stones,” “Five By Five” and “Got Live If You Want It!”
Each disc approximates the black vinyl look of the original 45, and is individually packaged in a picture sleeve using original artwork. The suggested retail price for the first set will be $59.98, a spokesman said.
The second box, “The Rolling Stones Singles 1965-1967,” will come out in the summer, and the third box, “The Rolling Stones Singles 1968-1971,” in the fall. Exact dates have not been scheduled yet.
ABKCO, owned by the Stones’ former manager, Allen Klein, re-released 22 of their early albums on dual-layer, hybrid Super Audio CDs in 2002 to coincide with the launch of their “Licks” world tour. It will release “The Rolling Stones’ Rock and Roll Circus” on DVD in Christmas 2005, ABKCO representatives said recently.
The Stones, who famously lost their 1960s copyrights to Klein, were not directly involved with the singles project, a label spokesman said. But ABKCO executives have been in daily contact with Keith Richards’ manager, Jane Rose. The Stones guitarist has been the most sanguine about losing the copyrights, having once described it as “the price of an education.” Klein, in turn, has said Richards is his favorite Stone. They also share a birthday.
The first disc features the debut single, “Come On” the b-side “I Want To Be Loved,” which were recorded in May 1963 and released the following month.
The final disc is “Got Live If You Want It!” — not to be confused with a 1966 U.S.-only live album of the same name but with different songs from a later concert. The EP was recorded in Britain in March 1965 and released three months later.
The first track, “We Want the Stones!” consists of the crowd chanting that line, and the Stones credited themselves, under their Nanker-Phelge pseudonym to claim royalties. The versions of “Everybody Needs Somebody To Love” and “Pain in My Heart” have also never before been released on CD.
Even though their first U.S. chart-topper “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” was released in the United States two weeks before the live EP hit U.K. stores, it will be included on the second box.
The Stones’ last studio album, “Bridges to Babylon,” was released in September 1997. Amid rumors that they will tour next year, the band’s members are working on an unspecified project that necessitated the cancellation of drummer Charlie Watts’ plans to tour Europe in the summer.
