Notes: In 2005, Made in the Shade and Sucking in the Seventies were remastered and reissued by Virgin Records. Meanwhile, Time Waits for No One was a non-charting UK-only release which has not re-emerged and, “with later compilations Jump Back: The Best of The Rolling Stones (1993) and Forty Licks (2002) superseding it, Rewind (1971–1984) is now out of print.” RW

Jump Back “was remastered and reissued by Universal Music” in 2009. JB

The Rolling Stones
Sorting out Stones’ compilations can be a bit of a chore. It’s not every band that’s had as many hits as they have and for over four decades. As a result, this page focuses on the Stones’ post-Decca and London Records era. Those record companies, in the U.K. and U.S. respectively, held the rights to pre-1972 Stones’ material. Consquently, this page is devoted to Stones’ compilations from 1971 to 2005 while another page is devoted to the Stones’ first era from 1963-1971.

The first official Stones’ compilation from the post-’71 era was Made in the Shade in 1975 followed by a companion piece, Sucking in the Seventies, in 1981. In between, Time Waits for No One overlapped both of those collections. With more focus on album tracks, and the fact that the most important cuts are covered elsewhere, this is the least significant of the compilations from the 1971-2005 era.

Rather than pick up where left off, the next three compilations all duplicated the efforts of the aforementioned collections. This means that Rewind, Jump Back, and Forty Licks are incredibly repetitive. However, the latter is the first career respective from the Stones, covering from 1963 to 2002 over two discs, making it the best place for a brand new fan to start.

Below are more specific details on each of the six individual collections cited above.

Made in the Shade:
Made in the Shade, released in 1975, is the first official compilation album by The Rolling Stones during their Atlantic Records contract. It draws entirely from their first four albums on that label.” WK-MS “The material…surveys the highlights from the band's post-Decca/London era…from 1971’s Sticky Fingers to It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll from 1974, with no new material.” WK-MS The Stones “were mid-way through recording Black and Blue upon this album's June 1975 release” WK-MS, putting this out “to capitalize on the band’s summer Tour of the Americas, featuring Ronnie Wood for the first time in Mick Taylor’s place. Wood, fitting in so well, was asked to remain in the band on a permanent basis following the tour’s conclusion.” WK-MS “Subsequent Rolling Stones compilation albums have also anthologized tracks included on this album.” WK-MS

Time Waits for No One:
Time Waits for No One: Anthology 1971–1977 is a British-only compilation album…released in 1979. It covers the period from Sticky Fingers in 1971 until Love You Live in 1977. Only two of ten single A-sides from the period are included – Angie and Fool to Cry.” WK-TW

Sucking in the Seventies:
Sucking in the Seventies was “released in 1981. As the successor to 1975’s Made in the Shade, it covers material from 1974’s It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll to 1980’s Emotional Rescue. All of the album tracks except Shattered were remixed or re-edited for this release, and some rarer material was also included. Everything Is Turning to Gold was previously released as ‘Shattered’s B-side in late 1978 in the U.S. only; If I Was A Dancer (Dance Pt. 2) is a longer and different mix and containing different lyrics than ‘Dance (Pt. 1)’, the opening track on Emotional Rescue, which, despite this compilation’s title, was released in 1980; and When the Whip Comes Down is presented in an otherwise unreleased live version, recorded in Detroit on the 1978 tour.” WK-SS

Rewind (1971–1984) “was released in 1984. Coming only three years after Sucking in the Seventies, the album was primarily compiled to mark the end of the band’s worldwide alliance with EMI (and Warner Music in North America), both of whom were the distributors of Rolling Stones Records.” RW “The UK and US editions…would each feature altered track listings, reflecting the individual tastes of both territories.” RW “The album was re-released on Compact Disc in the United States adding It’s Only Rock’n’ Roll (But I Like It) and Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo (Heartbreaker).” RW

Jump Back:
This was the Stones’ “first release under their contract with Virgin Records in November 1993.” JB This was released worldwide, except in North America, where it finally “came on 24 August 2004. The first Rolling Stones compilation packaged in the Compact Disc era, Jump Back: The Best of The Rolling Stones stretches from 1971’s Sticky Fingers to then-most recent studio album Steel Wheels in 1989.” JB

Forty Licks:
“Forty Licks is a double compilation album by The Rolling Stones. A forty-year career-spanning retrospective, Forty Licks is notable for being the first retrospective to combine the band’s formative Decca/London era of the 1960s, now licensed by ABKCO Records (disc one), with their self-owned post-1970 material, currently distributed by Universal music (disc two).” FL This page only focuses on the material from disc two. For disc one material, check out the 1963-1971 compilations page.
