New Collection of 1960's BBC Recordings Which Offer a Unique Insight Into the Formative Days of the Band!

Capturing the formative years of the Rolling Stones as they've rarely been heard before, On Air is a new compilation of radio recordings made by the group between 1963 and 1965 for BBC shows such as Saturday Club, Top Gear, Rhythm and Blues and the Joe Loss Pop Show. Eight tracks performed for the various shows were never recorded by the Stones for a commercial release; seven more made their debut on air before being released on albums or EPs. That underlines the fact that as their stature as major artists grew ever greater, the Stones were such frequent visitors to the BBC that they were constantly striving to perform a wide selection of material.

The lead track from the collection is a version of their first single, Chuck Berry's "Come On," recorded for Saturday Club in 1963. Additional highlights include "Fannie Mae," first recorded by blues artist Buster Brown in 1959, Tommy Tucker's "Hi Heel Sneakers" and Bo Diddley's "Cops And Robbers." There's also the chance to hear vibrantly live radio renditions of such early Jagger-Richards co-writes as "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," "The Last Time" and "The Spider And The Fly."

More than 50 years after they were recorded, the tapes have been through an "audio source separation" process at Abbey Road Studios in London, to rebalance and remix the source material into a fuller sound. This is the Rolling Stones where it all started, playing the music they loved so much – blues, R&B and even country!
