The Rolling Stones unveil Roll Over Beethoven from ‘The Rolling Stones – On Air’
24 November 2017
The Rolling Stones have today unveiled the next track from ‘The Rolling Stones – On Air’, a new collection of rarely heard radio recordings from their formative years. Roll Over Beethoven, broadcast on Saturday Club in 1963 and never recorded officially is taken from the release and is available now across various formats.
‘The Rolling Stones - On Air’ offers a glimpse into the early days of The Rolling Stones a few years before they became ‘The Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll Band in the World’. This was a band playing the music they loved - Blues, R&B, Soul and even the odd country song. The songs, including eight the band have never recorded or released commercially, were originally broadcast on bygone UK BBC shows such as Saturday Club, Top Gear, Rhythm and Blues and The Joe Loss Pop Show between 1963 and 1965.
Released via Polydor Records on CD, double CD deluxe edition, heavy-weight vinyl and special limited-edition coloured vinyl, ‘The Rolling Stones – On Air’ is released on 1 December and available to pre-order here.
The album follows the recent release of The Rolling Stones – On Air coffee table book, by Richard Havers and published by Virgin Books.
The Rolling Stones ON AIR 1963-65 - Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Brian Jones, Bill Wyman
‘THE ROLLING STONES – ON AIR’ WILL BE RELEASED BY POLYDOR RECORDS ON 1 DECEMBER 2017
