Rolling Stones Prepping Record Store Day ‘Back to Black Friday’ EP Release


Story by Charles Ken

The Rolling Stones will release a vinyl EP of their 1965 U.K. tour for Record Store Day’s ‘Back to Black Friday’ event

Black Friday is just a few weeks away, and the Rolling Stones are getting ready to release a vinyl seven-inch concert EP on Nov. 29 as part of Record Store Day’s “Back to Black Friday” event. “Got Live If You Want It!” will offer six songs that were previously released in 1965 in the U.K., but have never been released in the U.S.

If the title “Got Live If You Want It!” sounds familiar, that’s because the band released a full-length live album by that same name in 1966 in the U.S., but it featured different songs than what appeared on the U.K. version.

The U.K. EP was recorded in March 1965 and features a handful of tunes performed on the band’s U.K. tour that year. The set includes covers of Solomon Burke’s “Everybody Needs Somebody to Love,” Otis Redding’s “Pain in My Heart” and popular R&B song “Route 66.” The release also features an early collaboration between Mick Jagger and Keith Richards called “I’m Alright,” plus a high-energy clip of the audience shouting “We want the Stones.”

Record Store Day’s “Back to Black Friday” event will feature special releases from a collection of musicians, including limited-edition vinyl albums, singles, EPs and LPs that are only available at locally-own record shops. For the full list of Record Store Day “Back to Black Friday” releases, head to Record Store Day’s official website.
