The Second Disc

Massive Stones Box Rolling Your Way

with 15 comments

Although nobody knows if The Rolling Stones have any plans on touring this year, their music is still ripe for catalogue projects. Two years ago it was the deluxe version of Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out! Last year it was the Exile on Main St. deluxe reissue and some collectible vinyl boxes. And this year it will be a sizable 45-disc box set chronicling all of their singles from 1971 to the present.

Following in the tradition of a few ABKCO CD singles boxes (covering the band’s early material), UMe will release CD Singles 1971-2006 on April 11, collecting all the A and B-sides from the band’s various vinyl and CD singles from Sticky Fingers (the first album fully controlled by the band) to A Bigger Bang. All of the sleeves and labels are reproduced (as all good singles boxes should do), and some 80 rare or unreleased-to-CD tracks will be included, from non-LP tracks to remixes and live tracks.

The box will include a hardcover book featuring liner notes by journalist Paul Sexton and a new interview with former Stones bassist/band archivist Bill Wyman. The set is said to be a limited, numbered edition, although digital downloads will be available, as will a special Record Store Day commemorative single, reproducing the original “Brown Sugar” 45.

Have a look at the order page here and brace yourself for the track list after the jump.

  1. But will we finally get the mono single mix of “Brown Sugar” on this set? ABKCO didn’t include it on volume 3 of their CD singles set. I have a funny feeling it won’t be here, either.

  2. Yipes. That’s a lot of tunes.

    Ever since the London Years Singles Collection came out, I’d hoped for a post-1971 counterpart, ideally in a similar box. Considering all the dance mixes someone (MICK) has authorized, maybe it’s a good thing. While the Rarities set a few years back collected some of the B-sides, they missed a few, and that’s too bad for those of us who don’t have hundreds of dollars to get this.


    February 9, 2011 at 13:30

  3. Dang. I didn’t know there were so many dance and 12″ mixes of Stones songs in the 80s and 90s. Just glancing at the list, it appears at least one song is repeated: “Anybody Seen My Baby? (Bonus Roll)” is on both Disc 39 and Disc 40.


    February 9, 2011 at 14:31

    • As the discs went on, there were a lot of songs from earlier albums that happened to appear as B-sides on later singles. It’s one thing to keep them for preservation purposes, but stuff like that usually bugs me. Those tracks could appear once and most people wouldn’t miss them.

      I have another, overarching gripe somewhat related to this set, but I’m saving it for a post tomorrow. I need to sit in thought long enough.

      • This oughta be good. Looking forward to it!


        February 9, 2011 at 16:06

      • I’m looking forard to this as well. While I’m excited about this set, I’m, frankly, hesitant to put up $300 or so, what with the information available about it still seemingly incomplete.


        February 9, 2011 at 21:04

  4. I’m glad to see “I Think I’m Going Mad” finally released on CD.


    February 9, 2011 at 14:58

  5. I’ve seen several conflicting track listings for this set. In your listing, the single “Too Much Blood” is omitted. In some other track listings(not yours), the extended “Undercover of The Night” is missing.

  6. I would have preferred if this collection was combined on as few discs as possible. I have a 5-disc changer, not a 45-disc changer. All those discs seem inconvenient for how short they are and likely keep the price inflated. It would be a better listening experience to have fewer discs, along with a booklet with photos of all the singles cover art.

    • Yep. Spot on. My cd collection is already so large that many are packed in boxes. The last thing I need is to find homes for 45 cds each with music filling only 10% of the disc’s capacity.

  7. Thank goodness for digital download.


    February 9, 2011 at 23:20

  8. Singles box sets are a tricky one. I have the Michael Jackson Videography set, the Blondie singles collection, and – yes, you can laugh – the Girls Aloud singles box set. To be honest, the Girls Aloud set is my favourite because they collected all the remixes, live tracks, B-sides that were released on collective singles internationally, so each single was more like an ep than a single. It was worth every penny for song selection and packaging.

    I think the Rolling Stones set looks good so far, but way too expensive when some CDs are only two tracks each.


    February 9, 2011 at 23:41

    • i’ve got the 3 Decca/London singles boxes so there’s probably some kind of law saying i have to buy this one too :p


      February 10, 2011 at 04:26

  9. The Sex Drive remixes are missing. Some singles are combined, while some others duplicate things for no reason. It’s by no means complete. I think a 12″ single collection would have been wise; since this is incomplete, it just screws things up.


    February 10, 2011 at 18:40

  10. Well, thanks for this. I was wondering what the rarities were on this w/o all the endless remixes. I count up about 30 songs from your list that are considered ‘rare’. The live stuff is always fascinating. Your research saved a lot of time.
