The album was, in parts, famously recorded in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, Mick Jagger’s country home and Olympic Studios in London with regular collaborator Jimmy Miller. The original release in ’71 came after the band became exiled in the south of France, leaving Britain after a remarkable farewell tour.

The Deluxe Edition will include bonus material such as an alternative version of ‘Brown Sugar’ featuring Eric Clapton, unreleased interpretations of ‘Bitch,’ ‘Can’t You Hear Me Knocking’ and ‘Dead Flowers,’ an acoustic take on the anthemic ‘Wild Horses’ and five tracks recorded live at The Roundhouse in 1971.

The Super Deluxe edition will also house ‘Get Yer Leeds Lungs Out!’ the 13-track audio recording of the Stones’ gig in Leeds in March 1971, shortly before their “exile” in France began, as well as a 120 page hardback book complete with real zip, featuring new liner notes and many rare and unseen photographs from the era plus a print, postcard set and more.

More information on the re-issue can be found at the band’s website.
