Rolling Stones – Rewind

I got my copy of this, of all places, in a furniture store in a small town near my home when I was in high school. I know. Stranger places to find things may exist, but one never knows where gems will turn up. It pays to keep your eyes open at all times!

It may have been a rarity even then, I don’t know for sure, but my researches into it now show it is out of print.

Released in 1984, covering 1971-1984, this compilation marks the end of their time at Warner Music and EMI. There are two different track listings, one for UK and one for US releases (see below).

Overall, I have to say I quite liked this compilation back then, and I still like it now! I like the inclusion of Hang Fire, I always felt that one should have been a big hit amongst their other big hits. The UK got She’s So Cold and Respectable.

I’m having great fun zapping back through all of these compilations, for this series, and I definitely included Rewind in the fun times. In truth, I don’t really even need to be playing this disc, I know the songs so well. I could just be writing them up and slapping them in here, but where is the fun in that? I like further imprinting these tunes into my brain, so let it play!

With it out of print, I suppose I should add that if you see a copy of the old original disc, get it!

And now here are the two different track lists! Mine is the US version…

1 Brown Sugar
2 Undercover of the Night
3 Start Me Up
4 Tumbling Dice
5 It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll (But I Like It)
6 She’s So Cold
7 Miss You
8 Beast of Burden
9 Fool to Cry
10 Waiting on a Friend
11 Angie
12 Respectable

In the 1986 CD release, Hang Fire replaced She’s So Cold, while Emotional Rescue and Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo (Heartbreaker) were added.

    I’m always intrigued by the subtle differences between UK/US releases – also strange when the album itself is renamed for increased marketability in a given country.

      The Stones (and Beatles) early discographies are a minefield of differences between releases. These later compilations are even victim to it. All I can think is they were using songs that were hits in each market rather than just making one disc for everybody.

      Whatever the case, if you see this one, get it and Hang Fire!
