The ROLLING STONES To Issue 'On The Air In The 60's ' December 1st!

Collection of their earliest BBC performances (1963-1965)

November 15, 2017

The ROLLING STONES are set to release an album of some of their earliest 'live' (radio & TV) performances from the BBC! 'On Air In The 60's' offers a peek at the band at the very beginning of their rise to fame in the 1960's, and serves as a stunning chronicle of the beginnings of 'The World's Greatest Rock & Roll Band.' The collection of Stones' classics, cover versions, and rare, previously unreleased performances becomes available on December 1st, and will be available on DVD, CD, digital download, and vinyl (including a limited-edition yellow vinyl LP) . You can pre-order the set HERE.) A hardcover book of the same name (subtitled 'TV and Radio History As It Happened'), by author Richard Havers was released in late September. (Both the book & the CD are available as a 'bundle') The standard CD audio version contains 18 performances, with 14 more songs offered on a second disc on the 'Deluxe' version. (see titles below) All of the songs have been 'restored' to their original sonic splendor using some of the latest audio technology. All of the songs included were performed during the period of October 1963 thru September 1965 on a number of BBC shows like Saturday Club, The Joe Loss Pop Show, Blues in Rhythm, Top Gear and Yeah Yeah. Eight of the performances included in 'On Air' feature songs the Rolling Stones have never recorded or released commercially! Rock On, Rolling Stones!
