Rolling Stones exclusive! Hear their previously unreleased 1963 recording of “Roll Over Beethoven”

The track is taken from The Rolling Stones – On Air

Trending Now

On December 1, The Rolling Stones release The Rolling Stones – On Air, a new collection of rarely heard BBC radio recordings from their formative years.

We’re delighted to unveil the latest track taken from the album: a version of Chuck Berry’s “Roll Over Beethoven“, broadcast on Saturday Club on October 26, 1963.

The song was never recorded officially by the band, making this a unique inclusion into the Stones’ storied discography.


You can hear the song below.

The band have already shared “Come On“, from a 1963 edition of Saturday, and “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” from the same show, two years later.


The Rolling Stones – On Air will be released by Polydor on CD, double CD deluxe edition, heavy-weight vinyl and special limited-edition coloured vinyl. This album follows the recent release of The Rolling Stones – On Air coffee table book, by Richard Havers and published by Virgin Books.
