Listen: Rolling Stones ‘Bitch’ (Extended Version)

Mick Jagger Compares One Direction Fervor to the Rolling Stones
The hysteria surrounding boy band One Direction is old hat to Mick Jagger.

Have we got a treat for you! SpinMedia is premiering “Bitch” (Extended Version) by the Rolling Stones.

Sticky Fingers, one of the most revered albums in the storied catalog of the legendary Rolling Stones, is set to enthrall a new generation of admirers.

The 1971 classic — which captured the band at the absolute peak of their powers, on timeless tracks such as “Brown Sugar,” “Wild Horses,” “Bitch,” “Sister Morphine” and “Dead Flowers” — will be reissued by Universal Music

The alternate version of “Bitch” is a longer, looser, earlier take that, like the final version, was recorded at Stargroves, Mick Jagger’s country home in October 1970.

The version also has the horns tying different lines and fills and it has not the “attack” of the final version on Sticky Fingers.

Millions of Stones devotees will be hugely excited by not only the original album but the generous selection of previously unavailable material contained within the Deluxe and Super Deluxe formats.

These include the alternative version of the chart-topping single “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 including “Honky Tonk Women” and “Midnight Rambler.”

You can purchase the album on iTunes on June 9, but make sure to pre-order your copy now.
