The Rolling Stones
Vinyl Gang Product (VGP 317)
Alternate versions from 1964 to 1967
This is the never-released album from 1971 (or was it 1972), which was pressed on a few acetates. Some acetates were sold, for a lot of money, a couple of years ago, and....surfaced on bootleg CD after a while. The songs are either completely different takes (like "Have You Seen Your Mother Baby"), or different mixes than the official versions (from Metamophosis)
Pay Your Dues and the speeded-up Blue Turns To Gray are fantastic, IMO
As Metomophosis, several of the songs features Jagger, Richards and studio musicians, and not the other Stones members.
This is a high quality vinyl transfer made using the original London/ABCKO unreleased vinyl source and then digitally remastered.
Artwork is included and was created from 300DPI scans of the digipak bootleg for jewel case use.

The planned follow-up to Hot Rocks was to be titled Necrophilia, and was to have the tracks selected by
the unpredictable Andrew Loog Oldham. A gatefold sleeve was designed by Fabio Nicoli using
photography by the Stones' official photographer from the sixties, Gered Mankowitz.
Only an extremly limited number had been produced when, rumour has it, Oldham and Allen Klein had a
major disagreement over Oldham's eclectric track selection, which included controversial songs such as
"Andrews Blues" and "Pay Your Dues" (the alternate version of Street Fighting Man).
What you hear here is a vinyl transfer to CD of the actual unreleased album.
***NOTE: I HAVE REMOVED THE NEDDLE DROP SOUNDS (declicked) FOUND AT THE BEGINNING AND END OF EACH TRACK THAT WAS PRESENT ON THE ORIGINAL GOLD CD BOOTLEG***
