NEW YORK - Coffee giant Starbucks and Virgin Records are co-releasing a CD of rare Rolling Stones remixes, B-sides and hard-to-find live recordings, the band announced on its Web site Wednesday.
"Rarities: 1971-2003" will be released in Starbucks stores and in other retail outlets in the United States and Canada on Nov. 22.
The coffee company's music arm, Starbucks Hear Music, worked with the record label and the veteran British rockers to comb through the band's extensive archives.
Among the 16 tracks: a cover of Chuck Berry's "Let it Rock," originally released as a B-side to the 1971 single "Brown Sugar," and alternate takes of several of the band's biggest hits, including live versions of "Tumbling Dice," "Wild Horses" and "Beast of Burden," and a dance remix of "Miss You."
"With every studio session, there are always songs that never appear on the final album and at the time you think, `What a shame that song did not make it,'" Mick Jagger said.
