(Listen) The Rolling Stones Launch 40th Anniversary of “Tattoo You” With 1st of 9 Unreleased Songs


“Living in the Heart of Love” is the first of 9 unreleased tracks from “Tattoo You,:” the Rolling Stones’ signature 1981 album.

“Tattoo You” gets a 40th anniversary release in October with the a 3CD set — the original album, all remastered, a 2nd CD with 9 unreleased tracks including covers never heard before of “Drift Away” and Jimmy Reed’s “Shame Shame Shame” on a disc called Lost & Found.

There’s another disc, Still Life: Wembley Stadium 1982 comprising the band’s London show in June of that year on the Tattoo You tour. The 26-track set is packed with Stones mega-hits, including an opening “Under My Thumb” and all-time greats such as “Let’s Spend The Night Together,” “Honky Tonk Women” and “Brown Sugar.”

The Wembley show has covers of the Temptations’ “Just My Imagination,” Eddie Cochran’s “Twenty Flight Rock,” the Miracles’ “Going To A Go Go” and early rock ‘n’ roller the Big Bopper’s “Chantilly Lace.” It also features early live workouts for tracks from the then-new Tattoo You such as “Start Me Up,” “Neighbours,” “Little T&A” and “Hang Fire.”
