Bootleg Bin: The Rolling Stones – Record Mirror, Vols. 1 & 2

I recently interviewed Bill Wyman; that feature is coming soon. In my research for the piece, I’m reading Wyman’s autobiography/history Stone Alone. That got me thinking about this collection of unreleased material. — bk

Arguably all the unreleased Rolling Stones you’d ever need. Nearly all studio material, spanning the era from the beginning through “It’s Only Rock and Roll.” For my money they totally sucked after that. Sloppy? Of course; this is the Rolling Stones we’re talking about here. But there’s a lot of great material, providing insight into the genesis of some great music. If the Rolling Stones ever issued their own counterpart to the Beatles Anthology, well, this is pretty much what you’d get. And you’d likely be satisfied.
