Rolling Stones to Release Deluxe Edition of ‘Some Girls’ [VIDEO]

Courtesy Universal Republic

This week, The Rolling Stones released a deluxe edition of their classic 1978 album, Some Girls.  Much like the band did last year with Exile on Main Street, the re-issue includes the remastered album plus an extra disc of material filled with outtakes.

Some Girls is the 14th British and 16th American studio album by The Rolling Stones, released in 1978 on Rolling Stones Records, catalogue COC 39108. It peaked at #1 on the Billboard 200, and became one of the band’s biggest-selling album in the United States, and has been certified by the RIAA as having six million copies sold as of 2000.

Any time the band or their label needs some archived music, it seems the man to go to is former bassist, Bill Wyman.  We asked if he helped out on the re-release and when answering, he told us about a past project he helped out on too.

“Oh yes, absolutely, I’m always referred to, yeah, because my archive and everything. When Universal did the 45 single box set, they couldn’t do it. The Stones came to me and said, ‘Have you got all the 50-odd singles from ’71 to the present day?’ and I said, ’51? There’s 107!’ and I had them all, nobody else had them. The office didn’t have them, the record companies didn’t have them, none of the band had them. And so Universal had to come to me, do a deal with me and I had to give them scans of the fronts, the backs, the insides, what kind of covers they had, all the details and then they were able to do it.”
