On Sale Now: The Rolling Stones On Air Album

Rewind to a time when Bill was the bass player with the world’s biggest band – The Rolling Stones – with the release of On Air – a rare collection of new radio recordings.

1st December 2017 saw the release of The Rolling Stones – On Air, a collection of rarely heard radio recordings from their formative years. 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 and heavy-weight vinyl, these flashbacks offer an insight into the band as a vital and constantly surprising live unit. Such was the frequency with which they visited BBC studios in the 60’s, the group constantly set out to offer listeners something different. As well as songs that never appeared on singles or albums, there are seven tracks that were debuted over the airwaves before featuring on albums or EPs.

You can buy On Air from the official Rolling Stones site, and it’s available on iTunes, Amazon, CD and more.

  1. This is a very enjoyable group of songs and reinforces my belief that Bill and Charlie were much more accomplished musicians at that stage in the band’s career.
