THE ROLLING STONES: The Lost Chess Tapes (Limited Grey Vinyl LP) by The Rolling Stones

We are told .....

During 1964 The Stones booked two sessions at the legendary Chess studios. They recorded the big hits ‘It’s All Over Now’ and ‘Time Is On My Side’. Also recorded were eight legendary outtakes which were never officially released including ‘Goodbye Girl’, a rare Bill Wyman composition. Also included are bonus tracks featuring early versions and demos from 1963 and 1964. This is a privileged glimpse into the world of the Rolling Stones at work in the studio as the band took its first steps towards superstardom. The Jagger/Richards writing partnership can be followed as it develops from naïve early compositions to the creation of real classics such as ‘As Time Goes By’. This remarkable album is an endearing journey into history in the making and forms essential listening for every Stones fan.
