The Rolling Stones Discography
The discography of the English rock group The Rolling Stones consists of 29 studio albums, 17 live albums, 30 compilation albums, three extended play singles, and 107 singles. The early albums and singles released from 1963 to 1967 were originally released on Decca Records in the UK, and on their subsidiary label London Records in the US.
It was common practice in the music industry prior to 1967 for British releases to be reconfigured for the American market. In some cases, the US version would be an entirely different album with different tracks, cover photos, liner notes, and so on. The first five Rolling Stones albums were converted into eight LPs for American consumption, adding material from singles and the UK EPs. The two Big Hits singles packages, respectively from 1966 and 1969, differ in each nation, and in the case of December's Children (And Everybody's) and Flowers, there are no UK counterparts. After The Beatles insisted that their magnum opus Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band be released internationally with identical track configurations and cover art, this practice was quickly abandoned. Rolling Stones' LP releases from Their Satanic Majesties Request in 1967 forward are uniform in both the UK and the US, except for the abovementioned Through the Past, Darkly (Big Hits Vol. 2).

Famous quotes containing the words rolling and/or stones:
“The rolling English drunkard made the rolling English road.
A reeling road, a rolling road, that rambles round the shire.”
—Gilbert Keith Chesterton (18741936)
“... if we take the universe of fitting, countless coats fit backs, and countless boots fit feet, on which they are not practically fitted; countless stones fit gaps in walls into which no one seeks to fit them actually. In the same way countless opinions fit realities, and countless truths are valid, tho no thinker ever thinks them.”
—William James (18421910)
