THE ROLLING STONES : Beat Beat Beat / The Stones At The Beeb

Decent compilation of all 51 known / existing Stones tracks from the BBC archive. Certain titles are duplicated as more than one version exists, though these are alternate versions, and are spaced out through the tracklisting to prevent repetition. Sound quality is variable at times, though this is made up for by the rarity. Great covers of tracks by the likes of Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, Rufus Thomas, Muddy Waters, Howling Wolf & many more, with cover versions being gradually replaced by early Jagger - Richard originals. Have a listen & leave a comment.

Dedicated to Stones founder Brian Jones.
