Rolling Stones to Release Singles Box Set
Known as the Greatest Rock’n’Roll Band in the World, the Rolling Stones is celebrating their success with a new digital and physical box set release in April. While their stadium packing, record-breaking tour days seem to be over, the music they produced remains classic and fans around the world are ready for a re-release. The Rolling Stones Singles (1971-2006) box set will contain forty-five 45s, including all of the top singles they produced over that 40 year span.
US favorites and number one hits, including ‘Brown Sugar’, ‘Miss You’, and ‘Angie’ will be featured in the set, along with fan favorites ‘Don’t Stop’ and ‘Mixed Emotions’. But the box set will also contain new recordings from the Rolling Stones never before released. Most of these will be in the form of quality covers of classic rock and blues songs. This list includes Bob & Earl’s ‘Harlem Shuffle, ‘Ain’t Too Proud to Beg’ by the Temptations, Bob Dylan’s ‘Like a Rolling Stone’, ‘Let It Rock’ from Chuck Berry and Smokey Robinson’s ‘Going to a Go-Go’.
Fans who prefer the Stone’s most recent work will also be happy to hear favorites like ‘Biggest Mistake’, ‘Streets of Love’ and ‘Rain Fall Down’. The combination of new and classic material makes this box set the ultimate collector’s item for any Rolling Stones or classic rock fan. The collection begins in 1971, when the band had already reached the number one spot in the UK’s singles charts eight times over. However, this was the year they left the UK and expanded to the rest of the world. The constant travel the band undertook during this time shows in the variety of styles they explored during the 70s.
The box set features a bright pink box emblazoned with the trademark lips and tongue that is the symbol of all things Rolling Stones. 45 cds capture the full breadth of this band’s remarkable career, accompanied by a 32 page book containing rare photos and essays by Rolling Stones experts and band members.
