New from Universal Music Enterprises, in association with Hip-O Select, are two albums that are not really new, but newly released from two of the biggest, oldest groups still touring today. The Rolling Stones are celebrating 50 years together with a new greatest hits compilation that includes the first new music that the band has created together in over seven years. The other new release is an archived live album "Live At Hull 1970" from The Who, who are currently on tour performing their rock opera "Quandrophenia."
True fans would be more interested in the 3CD set which features 48 of the Rolling Stones' songs starting off with their rhythm & blues beginnings ("Come On" and "Little Red Rooster") and ending with the news songs. It covers the band's entire recording career and digs a little deeper than the two-disc set. There is also an 80-song edition that is spread across four-discs and includes some of The Stones' lesser known hits like "Dandelion" and "She's So Cold." Hopefully with the recording of the two new songs and their handful of scheduled live shows, that this may jump start The Rolling Stones to perform more new music for us in the future.
So be on the look out for these great new sets from two of classic rock's biggest performers. These also make great stocking stuffers for the music fan in your life this Christmas. For more information on these releases and more from the Universal Music Group, please visit hip-oselect.com.
